One Of The best Arguments For Leaving The EU

 

It is not often we look to the dear old Daily Express to keep us informed of the true left wing position on current issues but as the possibility of Britain  leaving the EU without a formal withdrawal agreement becomes a probability, and those Labour loony lefties, confuddled Conservatives and limp dicked Lib Dems  who led the Remain campaign and are still convinced that in a parallel universe they won continue to plot and scheme to thwart Brexit the arguments are becoming more toxic.

Yesterday I read a few paragraphs by someone claiming a no – deal break with Brussels with Brussels would result in all commercial arrangements currently in place between Britain and the bloc ceasing at 11pm on October 31. Well that’s wrongr but its an arguable case, but when the writer went a step further (a step beyond reality,) by claiming we would then be unable to trade with anybody I had to give up.

As Britain is now stuck in  Brexit limbo, with only Nigel Farage to argue against the threats and lies of the Brussels bureaucratic dictatorship until a new Conservative leader and bt tradition Prime Minister is elected, it was refreshing to hear on You Tube today a brilliant speech made by an anti EU Labour MP, Peter Shore. Unfortunately Shore died in 2001 and his anti EU speech was made over 40 years ago in an address to The Oxford Union (which in those days was so revolutionary it believed in free speech.

At the time, while Labour was, as ever, split on the question of EU membership it was the left, led by Tony Benn, with Shore among his closest associates, who saw the undemocratic, authoritarian and elitist nature of the EU. Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath had taken Britain into the European Economic Community – the precursor of the EU – in 1973, but his Labour successor, Harold Wilson, was forced to call a referendum on the country’s membership after only two years.

The vote saw the country divided into Yes and No campaigns, as opposed to 2016’s “Leave” and “Remain”.

Testicularly deficient bureaucrats Jean Claude Juncker (left) who has said Britain must be made to pay for its decision to leave the EU and former Labour MP Peter Shore who warned us 40 years ago of the danger posed by the inward looking, authoritarian bloc.

Labour MP for Stepney Peter Shore was leading the No campaign’s debate alongside the most prominent eurosceptic figure in his party, the then Secretary of State for Industry Tony Benn when, just before the referendum, the prestigious Oxford Union and addressed issues which still exist today.

Winding up his speech Shore made a brilliant argument on why Britain should not stay in an exclusive  trading bloc that would restrict our ability to trade with the rest of the world.

He said: “We should put to ourselves the facts that the eight countries of Western Europe, important as they are, are not even half of Western Europe itself, let alone the whole of the continent of Europe.

(The EEC then had only nine members including Britain, but the point is still valid, the 27 current members only account for around 12% of the world’s sovereign nations with only Germany sneaking into the top twenty most populous nations at number nineteen. More significant, all those nations above Germany are growing economically, while EU economies are stagnant.)

Shore’s speech continued …

“Nor for that matter should we ignore the fact that there exist outside the continent of Europe altogether more European people or people of European origin? And that [there are more people] in the great continents of North America, Latin America and Australasia that exists in the whole common market put together?

“Beyond that we should recall the fact that our horizon and the concerns that we have in the world as a country and as people are not limited to eight nations and 200million people in Western Europe, but to the 3000million people and 140 nations that exist in the six continents of the world

“The policies that we praise as a Government, the causes that we follow as people, the concerns that we have, are not confined and limited to this narrow area across the channel.”

Mr Shore concluded: “For that to happen to Britain it will be a contraction and a reduction of all the things with we have been concerned

“It is the world we belong to and it is mankind of which we are part, so let us hear.”

He was absolutely correct, while the European trading bloc confined its ambitions to being a free trade area which would enable its members to simplify the bureaucracy involved in international trade, being a member was a good idea. However when the EEC, or EC as it had become, morphed from a trade association to a political entity heading towards the absorption of its sovereign member states into a federal superstate it became a bad idea for the people of those member states, an idea that would only ever benefit the elites.

Shore, Benn and their colleagues in the campaign to take us out of the EEC were aware of the federalist ambition. And in those distant days most people in the Labour Party clung to the rather quaint belief that working class people were of equal worth with the professional, managerial and academic classes and the wealthy elitists of industry, commerce and finance and the insufferable luvvies of the mass entertainment media.

 

 

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU

Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative leadership contender Boris Johnson facing trial for his claim, during the EU Referendum campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Remainers claimed somebody in the Leave camp had said all the money would go to the NHS. Nobody actually said that but if fanatics want something to be true, they can easily convince themselves it is.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

On Wednesday, 3 April, 2019 The House of Commons voted in favour of legislation which forces the Government to request another extension for ‘Brexit’, giving our current Prime Minister Theresa May more time to show us the comtempt the ruling elite have for the principles of democracy.

Eurosleaze:May’s Top Brexit Bureaucrat Offered Millions by Big Banks

London’s Future?

This article, by Theodore Dalrymple, first published in Law and Liberty is reproduced by this Not For Profit site under fair use terms in the public interest, as the chaotic failure of our government to deliver the democratic decision to leave the European Union (Brexit) has revealed the chasm that has opened between the ruling elite and the nation they govern is now insurmountable.

I Have Seen London’s Future and It Is Caracas

 

Important (for good or evil) as Brexit may be to the future of Britain, it is not without its importance for the European Union. Indeed, it was always essential for the Union that Britain’s departure should be an economic disaster for Britain: for if it were not, why have a union at all?

It was therefore entirely predictable that the Union should drive a hard bargain with Britain, even a bargain economically harmful to itself, provided only that it was worse for Britain: for the self-preservation of the European political class is at stake. In the European Union politics always trumps economics.

In Britain too, political considerations were uppermost in the minds of those who voted for Brexit. They saw in the European Union a Yugoslavia in the making, led by a megalomaniac class without effective checks or balances. But now they are increasingly apprehensive of the economic costs of Brexit.

And the economic auguries for Britain are indeed poor, though not only, or even principally, because of the European Union’s hostility. The fact is that Britain is unlikely to be able to take any advantage of life outside the European straitjacket because its own political class is itself in favour of straitjackets that are no better, and quite possibly worse than, the European ones. The present Prime Minister, Theresa May, is very much a statist, indistinguishable from European social democrats, and the leader of the opposition, Mr Corbyn, who might well be the next Prime Minister, is an unapologetic admirer of Hugo Chavez. It is hardly to be expected that foreign investors will place much trust or confidence in an isolated country whose next government might very well weaken property rights, impose capital controls and increase corporate taxation in favour of supposed social justice. It would not take very long to turn Britain into a northern Venezuela: a Venezuela without the oil or the tropical climate.

Moreover, Britain already has many weaknesses and few strengths. It has a huge and persistent trade imbalance, because it does not produce enough of what the world wants and cannot easily be made to do so; it has a large national debt, about the same size as that of France, but without a highly functioning infrastructure such as France’s to show for it; its household debt is among the highest in the world. For many years, its economic policy might as well have been presided over by Mr Madoff; its social policy has been to smash up all forms of social solidarity or support for the vulnerable that do not pass through the state. The destruction of the little platoons has been very thorough: most large ‘charities’ in Britain are now dependent on government rather than on private funding, and hence are in effect departments of state.

As if this were not enough, Britain has enormous cultural problems, perhaps only to be expected in a country in which more than fifty per cent of children are born out of wedlock and twenty per cent do not eat a meal with another member of their household more than once every two weeks. A dangerously high and perhaps unsustainable proportion of the population is unfitted for productive life in a modern economy, having attained an abysmally low educational level despite (or because of?) considerable state expenditure. This section of the population is not merely indifferent to refinement of any kind – intellectual, aesthetic or of manners – but actively hostile to it. Similarly, it is not merely not anxious to learn, it is anxious not to learn.

This explains why Britain has persistently imported labour from Eastern Europe to perform tasks in its service industries that ordinarily one might have expected its large fund of indigenous non-employed people to perform. The fact is, however, that though these tasks require no special skills, they did require certain personal qualities such as reliability, politeness, and willingness to adapt: and these the eligible local population lack entirely. No hotel-keeper, for example, would consider using British labour if he could get foreign.

Perhaps nothing captures the levels of personal incompetence and lack of self-respect in Britain than the fact that young men of the lowest social class are about half as likely to die in prison as they are if left at liberty. In prison, though adult, they are looked after, at least in a basic way, and told what to do. They are no longer free to pursue their dangerous and crudely self-indulgent lifestyle, in which distraction is the main occupation. In prison they receive the health care that, though it is free to them under the National Health Service, they are not responsible enough to seek when at liberty. In short, they do not know, because they have never been taught, how to live in a minimally constructive fashion, though they were certainly not born ineducable.

No doubt other comparable countries have similar problems, but none (at least, none known to me) has them to anything like the same extent. These problems do not originate from Britain’s membership of the European Union, nor will they be solved by exit from the Union. They can be solved only by something more resembling a religious revival than by any likely government action. But expecting a population to bethink itself while simultaneously being offered political solutions that require no effortful cultural change is unreasonably optimistic. And politicians are unlikely to be frank about the problem for two reasons: first because alluding to the deficiencies of their electorate is probably not the best way to get elected, and second because it downgrades the providential role of politics, which politicians are understandable reluctant to do.

As if this were not quite enough, the hold on the country’s intelligentsia of statist solutions to practically all problems is still immensely strong. Nowhere is this more evident than in its attitude to the National Health Service, the establishment of which it almost universally regards as having been a great achievement, perhaps Britain’s only great achievement of the twentieth century. This is despite all the evidence that it has not been egalitarian in its effect, as it was originally supposed to be, or that almost all Western European health systems are superior to it. The fact that all Western Europeans regard it with at least disdain, and more usually with absolute horror, does nothing to shake the British intelligentsia’s faith in the essential goodness of the National Health Service. The only perceived problem with it is that it underfunded: the same problem as with all other government services. In the struggle between rhetoric and reality, rhetoric always wins.

The population by and large follows the intelligentsia, and the politicians follow the population; but the only economic advantages to Brexit would be the possibility of a nimbler, less regulated and bureaucratic economy. There is now no prospect of this. Therefore, I have seen the future of London, and it is Caracas – or very might be.

 

Leaked Documents Reveal Facebook’s Biased, Convoluted Censorship Policies

Since the 2016 US Presidential election, when the phrase ‘fake news’ entered the vernacular, Facebook has employed thousands of human moderators tasked with identifying what is and is not acceptable content to be posted on the censorious social media website. These humans were not employed to replace the ‘Artificial Intelligence’ automated moderation system the nerdocracy that runs Facebook had previously relied on, but to make the judgements ‘Artificial Intelligence’ cannot (because far from being intelligent, it is as abjectly effing stupid as the nerds that probram the algorithms. It has come to light in leaked documents obtained by The New York Times that Facebook’s human moderators are doing a lousy job, promoting fake news while censoring truthful reports, because they  have been relying on outdated, inaccurate and biased “maze of PowerPoint slides” to police global political speech, according to the trove of 1,400 internal documents inspected and reported on by The New York Times

Moderators who have worked for Facebook admit they often rely on Google Translate to read posts, and are put under pressure to achieve targets by making decisions on the acceptability of content within a matter of seconds, just as call centre customer service agents are required to clear down calls quickly, according to the report.

The guidelines for moderators, reviewed every other Tuesday morning by “several dozen Facebook employees who gather over breakfast,” according to Facebook public relations propaganda, areare filled with “numerous gaps, baises and outright errors,” according to the Times.

Moderators were once told, for example, to remove fund-raising appeals for volcano victims in Indonesia because a co-sponsor of the drive was on Facebook’s internal list of banned groups. In Myanmar, a paperwork error allowed a prominent extremist group, accused of fomenting genocide, to stay on the platform for months. In India, moderators were mistakenly told to flag for possible removal comments critical of religion. –NYT

The guidelines, set by “mostly young engineers and lawyers,” must be interpreted by Facebook’s fleet of mostly outsourced moderators which employ largely unskilled workers, “many hired out of call centers.”

(Illegal migrants working on zero hours contracts perhaps? – editor)

Moderators have expressed frustration at rules they say don’t always make sense and sometimes require them to leave up posts they fear could lead to violence. “You feel like you killed someone by not acting,” one said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he had signed a nondisclosure agreement. –NYT

According to Facebook executives, they are working diligently to rid the platform of “dangerous” content.

“It’s not our place to correct people’s speech, but we do want to enforce our community standards on our platform,” said Facebook senior News Feed engineer. “When you’re in our community, we want to make sure that we’re balancing freedom of expression and safety.”

The company’s head of global policy management, Monika Bickert, meanwhile, said that the company’s primary goal was to prevent harm – though perfection “is not possible.”

“We have billions of posts every day, we’re identifying more and more potential violations using our technical systems,” said Bickert. “At that scale, even if you’re 99 percent accurate, you’re going to have a lot of mistakes.

Indeed it is not, but can an organisations whose senior management have been only too willing to use the company’s position to promote the left wing, globalist causes they support, ever be trusted toensure balanced treatment for political and social commentary which challenges the idea and values their corporate leaders want to impose on the world?

And since Facebook’s set of rules are more or less a patchwork of Excel spreadsheets and unorganized PowerPoint presentations, there is no single master file or reference guide. ing to the Times, “Moderators must sort a post into one of three “tiers” of severity. They must bear in mind lists like the six “designated dehumanizing comparisons,” among them comparing Jews to rats.” Facebook insists the files are only for training, but moderators say they are used as day-to-day reference materials.

One document sets out several rules just to determine when a word like “martyr” or “jihad” indicates pro-terrorism speech. Another describes when discussion of a barred group should be forbidden. Words like “brother” or “comrade” probably cross the line. So do any of a dozen emojis. –NYT

“There’s a real tension here between wanting to have nuances to account for every situation, and wanting to have a set of policies we can enforce accurately and we can explain cleanly,” said Bickert, who added “We’re not drawing these lines in a vacuum.”

The Times concludes that entrusing to Facebook the task of policing of what they consider extremism or disinformation intrudes into sensitive political matters worldwide – “sometimes clumsily.”

“Facebook’s role has become so hegemonic, so monopolistic, that it has become a force unto itself,” said Balkans expert Jasmin Mujanovic. “No one entity, especially not a for-profit venture like Facebook, should have that kind of power to influence public debate and policy.

Whistleblower: UK Prepared for ‘No Deal’ Brexit, Scare Stories ‘Absolutely Untrue’

leave means leave
No deal? Leave means leave (Picture: Breitbart )

We did tell you the Remainers and EU fanboys were scaremongering. Now it’s official – well sort of …

A senior civil servant has lifted the lid on a Remainer conspiracy behind Project Fear , revealing that the country is actually well-prepared for a “No Deal” Brexit and scare stories about Britain “crashing out” into “chaos and doom” are “absolutely untrue”. So it’s time we were rid of that weird looking gobshite Hammond and the little Canuk cunt and the Bank Of England, Carney.

The anonymous official, who has been involved in Britain’s preparations for a Brexit on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms — the so-called “No Deal” scenario — revealed in a Telegraph article that there are “hundreds” of plans in place to ensure that outlandish threats of food, water, and medicine shortages will not be realised, and that “it is purely a political decision not to make this clear to the public and nervous backbench MPs”.

“Project Fear Mark (I think) III… claims that we will all ‘crash out’ over the white cliffs of Dover into the Channel at 11 p.m. on 29 March 2019 and wake up to certain chaos and doom… [I]t is absolutely untrue, as anyone who, like me, has been involved in Brexit work for the past two-and-a-half years in Whitehall will tell you,” he scoffed.

Well this blog has been telling you since 2016 that Remainers were a bunch of neo-con globalist authoritarians who would have trashed our country completely rather than give up the dream of a totalitarian world government – towards which a federal Europe was a vital step.

May Nearing A Brexit Deal Breakthrough?

The UK Parliament is rumoured in some quarters to be nearing a breakthrough in negotiations that will enable an altered version of Prime Minister Theresa May’s sellout deal with the European Union to be accepted by elected representatives. It is thought a proposal by Graham Brady, leader of the Conservative rank and file (back benchers) which would throw out the hated ‘Irish backstop’

 

EU threatens to torpedo May’s Brexit deal as she lies to nation about her surrender.

Even as Theresa May stood in front of the nation and lied about the abject surrender to EU bullying that she is trying to see to British voters as a good deal when it will mean surrendering our sovereignty and lawmaking powers to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, it looks as if the EU itself is not as united as we are being told.
As both sides prepare for a summit to finalise the deal, scheduled for Sunday, there are claims Angela Merkel is threatening to pull the plug on the gathering unless the outstanding issues are solved by tomorrow.  EU Commission President Jean Claude Drunkard’s deputy Valdis Dombrovskis warned that the summit would not definitely go ahead. ‘For that we will need to have agreed beforehand on the political declaration on the future relationship and we are not there yet,’ he said.

Asked if Mrs May was still going, her spokesman said: ‘A summit has been called, an agenda has been published and we look forward to attending.’

Mrs May thought she had managed to quell a Cabinet mutiny over the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement – albeit at the cost of two big resignations. A backbench coup attempt led by Jacob Rees-Mogg was also reported to have collapsed. However what actually happened is the conservative rebels understood May’s deal, or betrayal as we should call it for the sake of honesty, has no chance of being approved by Parliament, so why trigger a vote of confidence which they might lose, when in the event of May’s deal being defeated in The House Of Commons, the opposition parties will demand a vote of confidence in the government. The government would lose, May would resign, there would be a General Election and who knows what reult that would throw up.

May still thinks she can get her deal through of course, the woman is nothing if not stupid.

The military-industrial-humanitarian complex: Western hegemony spread by virtue signalling?

 

The terms ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ were once used to describe honourable behaviour and just causes. Now they have become contenders, along with science, socialism and liberal for the dubious honour of being the most abused words in the English language, routinely deployed to justify politically motivated acts of aggression which lead to death and destruction.
Words such as ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ have acquired a darker and more cynical meaning following their misappropriation to justify the invasion of sovereign nations, effect regime change and promote the spread of Western military, economic and cultural dominance around the world. The mainstream media and many human rights activists, assist these ventures by broadcasting and publishing propagandised news and by tapping into negative emotions such as fear and outrage to soften public opinion and make interference in the political affairs of sovereign states appear justified.
If you remember 2001 and the lies of western politicians and media about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, supposedly capable of being deployed against western targets within 45 minutes, the strategy was used to swing public opinion behind the US / EU / NATO push for a war that would rid them of a maverick leader.  The public were deceived into accepting the invasion through attention-grabbing headlines crafted to abhor readers with ‘evidence’ of Saddam’s butchery and to generate strong emotional reactions which would cause people to think with their hearts rather than their heads.
One story was written by UK Labour MP Ann Clwyd, and published by the one time newspaper of record The Times  two days before the US-led Coalition of the Willing began pounding Iraq’s cities and infrastructure with carpet bombing attacks. Clwyd claimed that Saddam had demonstrated a ‘human-shredding machine’ into which adversaries were fed and reduced to fish food. It is of course a variation on a scence in the Coen brothers film Fargo in which a wood shredder is used to render a corpse unidentifiable.
The article, under the title “See men shredded, then say you don’t back war” was quoted by other newspapers and by TV and radio news and caused readers to feel revulsion towards Saddam and his regime, and made the anti-war lobby appear sympathetic to a murderous regime dubbed by one tabloid, “The Butchers Of Bagdhad,” and indifferent to the plight of the Iraqi people. The story was challenged by anti – war campaigners and no evidence of such a device has been found. And for the record Saddam was supported by more than half of Iraquis, a popularity he achieved by the simple expedient of using a significant proportion of his country’s oil revenues to provide generous welfare payments.

The Iraqi dictator was certainly no angel, but he did manage to keep down the extremist elements in his country ,and of course, his removal by the the western military powers, USA , UK and France (The FUKUS axis,) facilitated the rise of ISIS some years later. Saddam’s real crimes were well known to US and NATO intelligence services, who kept him informed about the locations of Iranian troops during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, in the knowledge that he would use mustard gas and sarin against them.

The US also provided Saddam with cluster bombs and helped him acquire chemical precursor agents. US-based Human Rights Watch estimated that Saddam killed at least 290,000 of his own people while in power.  However, this figure is dwarfed by the number of Iraqis believed to have died in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion, due to occupation forces, sectarian violence or ISIS – this figure is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands, if not in excess of a million.

The psychological shock-and-awe strategy was again employed in the lead up to NATO’s bombing of Libya, as the US and UK’s on-off relationship with Gaddafi took a turn for the worse after he planned to start selling oil in dinars (a new gold-backed pan-African currency) instead of US dollars or euros, and encouraged his African neighbors to follow suit.

The release of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server in late 2015, just as the 2016 election campaign was getting under way revealed that such a move would have strengthened African economies and led to competition between the dinar and the dollar or euro. In fact there is in progress now a move led by Russia and China to dump the US$ as reserve currency and move to a system of settling cross border trades in the vendors currency. And earlier this year, China launched the Petroyuan, a gold-backed contract for trading oil futures, on the Shanghai stock & commodity exchange. So old Mad Dog Muammar was just unfortunate enough to be ahead of the game when he had no powerful allies to back him up.

On this occasion, we were treated to the excuse that bombing Libya and supporting the anti-Gaddafi rebels, including Al-Qaeda-affiliated elements, was necessary as Gaddafi was about to commit a massacre against the people of the rebel-controlled city of Benghazi. Another emotive claim designed to mould public opinion into accepting the war affirmed that Gaddafi was giving his soldiers Viagra so they could commit mass rape. An investigation by Amnesty International found no evidence to support this allegation and revealed that on several occasions anti-Gaddafi forces in Benghazi had made false allegations or manufactured evidence of human rights violations.

Without any sense of irony American, European and British politicians and the media now try to justify censorship of news and opinion, seeking to justify this illiberal and undemocratic activity by claiming it is necessary to silence those who spread ‘fake news’. Do we really believe governments and the media are going to censor themselves? Do we believe Google are suddenly going to cease and desist from suppressing factual information and opinions critical of their cronies in Washington? Do we believe Facebook are going to remove the globalist bias from their algorithms and give equal prominence to news and ideas that do not support Zuckerberg’s world domination agenda? Do we look as though we were born yesterday?

The concern of governments and their corporate friends about fake news is that with the rise of new media real news will leak out into the public domain and expose the fact that governments have been feeding us fake news since the modern era began with the protestant reformation.

The Birth Of Cultural Marxism

the daily stirrer
Karl Marx

Over the past week politicians, academics along with showbiz and media luvvies have been falling over themselves to celebrate the 150th Anniversay of Karl Marx. When we consider the misery inflicted on humanity by supporters of his ideology we really must ask why this stupid man is celebrated rather than being demonised.

Wherever the economic and social dogmas or Marxism have become part of a government program the results have been disastrous. Dissidents and free thinkers, members of religious groups and political opponents have been slaughtered while innocents have died by the million in famines and epidemics, they result of a politcal ideology that has no understanding of human nature causing the infrastucture to grind to a halt.

And yet people continue to advocate Marxism as a solution to the world’s problems, claiming: “It wasn’t done properly in the Soviet Union, Communist China, Castro’s Cuba, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, Vietnam, East Germany, Hungary, Poland etc. Do they mean I wonder, that for Marxism to work there needs to be more government control, more social engineering, more curtailment of civil rights and suppression of individual freedom.

Alestair McLeod of GoldMoney.com gives the sane view on Marx

Commerzbank, Mozilla, Suspend Facebook Ad Campaigns As Advertisers Start Pulling Out

As we reported yeserday, the backlash against Facebook over the Cambridge Analytics data harvesting story continues to grow. At first it seemed fairly innocuous, some crazy scientist had developed an app that tricked people into granting access to their personal details and activity records. Then it emerged that even though the guy had been naughty, claiming he was collecting datas for research, when in fact his plan was to sell the database to commercial outfits, for which he should have paid Facebook a fee for using their site.

Then it dawned on people that although Cambridge Analytics, which bought the unethically obtained data was being demonised in mainstream media because they numbered among their clients Donald Trump;s 2016 campaign and the Leave campaign in the british EU referendum campaign, but in fact what they did was what facebook’s business is built on, all those quizzes, tests, memes, like buttons etc. are about commecting personal data without users being aware of what is going on. And that started a public backlash (which we reported yesterday).

Now the blight has spread to advertisers: first it was Mozilla, now Germany’s Commerzbank has also suspended a Facebook advertising campaign, Unilever is in the process of pulling what’s left of its campaigns after announcing last year that Facebook adverts were not effective and several agencies have announced their clients will no longer use the platform.

“Brand safety and data security are very important to us”, German daily Handelsblatt quotes Commerzbank brand management chief Uwe Hellmann as saying. “We want to give ongoing investigations enough space, and decide how to proceed at an appropriate time.”

Just a week ago, before the scandal story broke, Commerzbank had launched a large-scale image campaign, which was planned to be broadcast on selected TV channels as well as online, including on Facebook. The campaign is tied to a repositioning of the Frankfurt company’s brand.

Facebook advertisers have threatened to abandon the platform in the wake of the massive data harvesting scandal which began after it was revealed that an app created by two psychologists gathered data on over 50 million Americans and then sold it to political data firm Cambridge Analytics and several others, who used it without consent.

Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of the social media giant and a well know world domination wannabe gave several creepy interviews Wednesday after spending three days in hiding, ostensibly with a crisis management team which advised him not give wholly unsatisfactory answers to one of the largest data breaches in history. Naturally the answers he gave questioners were totally unsatisfactory, and were also not believed because Zuckerberg and his company have a track record of priomising one thing and doing the opposite.

ISBA, a British group of advertisers that spend hundreds of millions of pounds a year on Facebook, demanded answers. It is understood that some of the 3,000 brands it handles, which include those of the consumer goods companies Unilever and P&G, will not tolerate association with Facebook if it emerges that users’ data has found its way into the hands of brokers and political campaigners without authorisation. Sources close to the trade body said that if the company’s answers were unsatisfactory, advertisers might spend their money elsewhere. ISBA will meet Facebook executives this week.

Other major clients, such as Mozilla, the the Firefox browser company, have already pulled out, or as a spokesperson said, have “pressed pause” on Facebook advertising. In a scathing post, Mozilla said that “when Facebook takes stronger action in how it shares customer data, specifically strengthening its default privacy settings for third party apps, we’ll consider returning.” Until then, “Mozilla will advertise elsewhere.”

Facebook knows a great deal about Mozilla’s two billion users, perhaps more intimate information than any other company does. They know everything we click and like on their site, and know who our closest friends and relationships are, because despite its denials, Facebook is known to install tracking cookies on the device of anyone who visits a page with a Facebook ‘like’ button. Because of its scale, Facebook has become one of the most convenient platforms to reach an audience for all companies and developers, whether a multibillion corporation or a not-for-profit.

It is believed that Facebook took steps to limit developer access to friends’ data beginning in 2014, but can any=thing Facebook reveals about its business be trusted (sic)?. When we consider the assurance was given after Facebook started its relationship with Cambridge University Professor Aleksandr Kogan, whose decision to share data he collected from Facebook with Cambridge Analytica is behind the current scandal.

We believe still more will be revealed about Facebook’s lax attitude to privacy and ethics, for example its current default settings leave access open to a lot of data – particularly with respect to settings for third party apps.

Meanwhile, Facebook shares continue to slide – falling approximately 8.6% in three trading sessions and down again on Thursday premarket as investors – particularly “ethical” investment funds – reconsider their decision to hold the increasingly toxic company.

Italian Town ‘Taken Over’ By Nigerian Migrant Gangs

The former seaside resort town of Castel Volturno, to the north of Naples, has reportedly been taken over by Nigerian gangs who run drug and prostitution rings. The town has a total population of around 30,000 people, of which an estimated 20,000 are migrants, many of them in Italy illegallly, French news magazine L’Obs reports.

Many of the Nigerian women who walk the streets as prostitutes offering sexual favours for as little as 5 to 15 euros along the Via Domitiana by the sea are underage. The pimps who the girls work for do not care, they know EU policy make it very difficult for dark skinned people to be prosecuted. Rampant petty crime and violence in the city has led to journalists wanting to write about the town requiring police escorts for their own safety.

The current Italian government, which is seeking re-election on March 4th, has signed a 21-million euro package to increase security in towns like Castel Volturno and offer integration programmes for migrants. The government is pro EU and supports the open borders policy which has caused problems throughout Europe due to uncontrolled immigration.

The mayor of Castel Volturno, Dimitri Russo, said the government’s measures will not be enough to stem the rising tide of crime. Russo said that the problem was that the city was no longer dealing with an organised traditional mafia but many gangs of “predatory” criminal migrants who bring the lawlessness of the third world to Europe.

Even well established African residents of the town have started to complain about the mass migration of illegals into the town and the problems it is causing. A resident named Martin commented: “We live in an abandoned place, we cannot accept all these people because we do not have the strength or the means to educate them. We are not in Africa, but in a civilized country, and these people need to be educated.”

It is unclear how many illegal migrants live in Italy, but former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has said the number is as high as 600,000. Berlusconi promised to deport at least 600,000 illegals if his party wins the upcoming national election, while his coalition partner and leader of the populist Lega party Matteo Salvini has made a similar promise.

If this is the age of victimhood, then there are no larger (and more recognised) victim groups than gender and racial minorities.

My race (and certain other traits) put me firmly in the “victim minority” bracket—well, if you ignore the horribleness of my maleness. I should clarify that I don’t see myself in those terms. But so strong is the wave of desire to identify and deify victims, that *some* people in everyday life insist on interacting with me as a member of a victim class. They mean well.

I’ve resorted to spending more time than I’d like thinking about these terms—if only so I can find ways of ridding myself of them. And I have found a couple.

But of all the illogicalities that have emerged from the degeneration of political (and politicised) discourse, the biggest one (to me) is the exaltation of subjectivity.

This is the idea that an individual’s feelings on matters with universal consequences, are more important that the construction of universally comprehensible and verifiable standards.

This is the biggest illogicality because it imposes the expectation that everyone, everywhere should get along and hold hands… while assaulting, in sadomasochistic fashion, the only mechanism which can allow them to do so—objectivity.

This is not just a conceptual problem and I’ll illustrate that with a practical example.

Everywhere I look, I see stats about how there are either too many black people or too few of us in whatever state of existence we’ve decided is topical. There are stats about how few women there are in STEM and a cherry-picked list of desirable professions. There’s the inexplicably persistent gender pay gap narrative, which has been repeatedly debunked by such sexist publications as Harvard (a female professor at Harvard, to be specific) and Forbes (in an article written by another female academic).

And Thomas Sowell (a black economist) has been admonishing the western world since the 80s, about the inaccuracies (and dangerousness) of the way we dishonestly politicise disparities in income and opportunity, across race and gender.

But I digress… because I don’t have a problem with these statistics, nor am I even here (solely) to debate their validity.

It’s what we—humans—do with these statistics that really bothers me. We abuse them with this new-found exaltation of subjectivity.

We turn victimhood into a mechanism for attaining disproportionately large power, then do what humans do best when we wield too much power—abuse it.

So, we say, My subjective reality is that white people are racist and evil, therefore the fact there aren’t more black CEOs *must be* the fault of white people.”

Or we say, My subjective reality is that all men are all evil, rapey gorillas, so the fact that there aren’t more women in STEM *must be* the fault of men.”

Even ignoring that in all these conversations, never have I seen a causal chain constructed (let alone a causal link established)… there’s still a huge inconsistency in how these ideas evolve.

To prove that [INSERT MINORITY GROUP] would achieve a perfectly even 50/50 split of opportunities, were it not for the interference of [INSERT MAJORITY OPPRESSOR], we pretend there’s perfect uniformity across groups.

We proclaim that gender and race are social constructs, completely removed from science and reality.

Women, men and people of different races are perfectly uniform in all abilities, interests and aptitudes. This is an incredibly subjective stance to take… but let’s entertain it for a minute.

If this were true, then there’d be absolutely no need for diversity. If we are all uniform, then we are all interchangeable.

This is an exemplary case of mutual exclusivity. Either we are all different, therefore we need a good mix to capitalise on unique qualities… or we’re all the same, and each human possesses the same abilities to the same degree of competence as every other human.

If we acknowledge diversity, we *must* also acknowledge lack of uniformity. And if we acknowledge lack of uniformity, we *must* also acknowledge inequalities of ability.

The mistake we make is that our prejudices cause us to value some abilities more than others—and we are simplistic enough to assume that being less skilled in these abilities makes people less valuable too.

For example, no one would bat an eyelid were I to suggest that the average height of Dutch people is greater than the average height of Senegalese people. But swap height for beauty, IQ or some other politically charged subject and the reaction completely changes—because human prejudices cause us to assume “beauty” and “IQ” are more valuable (or humanising) qualities than height.

This prejudice manifests itself in other unhealthy ways which I will cover later.

But I like to ask myself, “What if I’m wrong?” So, I did and I could find only one potentially credible criticism.

That criticism is that diversity isn’t about biological composition and abilities. It’s about cultures and communal experiences, and how those shape individuals.

This is an idea I like… but if this is the case, shouldn’t we be encouraging people to fixate less on the artificial constructs of gender and race—aka the “patriarchy” and the “white devil”? Both follow arbitrarily biological lines of categorisation and represent a hypocritical stance by those who claim things like race and gender shouldn’t be used to judge others. Surely, the shared experience of the human condition supersedes both? Surely, the lesson is that all humans (male or female, white or non-white, heterosexual or homosexual etc.) tend to abuse power when they wield too much of it?

If race and gender are social constructs, are the problems we see in the world not more likely to be borne of human nature—rather than “white nature” or “male nature” or any other selectively defined nature?

And do the solutions to these problems not lie in our ability to find connections, based on shared human experiences and struggles, which traverse cultures and communities?

Yet, it was James Damore’s position that women, as a group (not at an individual level) tend to have different interests from men, which got him fired. He didn’t say the interests held by women are inferior to those held by men—simply that they are different.

It’s funny because firing James Damore seemed to me a highly “patriarchal” move. It proved that Google believes the interests that are most likely to be held by men are more valuable than the interests that are more likely to be held by women. Therefore, the only way to argue that women (as a group) are as valuable as men is to argue that women are the same as men.

This is a sad conclusion because it encourages women to value themselves based on how identical they are to men.

This is symptomatic of a general move in society. We push groups identified as being marginalised to measure their value based on how identical they are to groups which are considered to be unfairly free of marginalisation.

Equality has been (wrongly) conflated with uniformity.

Similarly, Apple’s diversity officer lost her job because she dared to suggest that a group of white men can still be diverse. Is whiteness so overpowering now, that it completely nullifies every other aspect of a person’s existence? Their nationality? Their sexuality? Their socio-economic background? Their religious background? Their philosophical background?

In an age when we bemoan the paucity of women in top jobs at tech companies, should the expression of a logical opinion in a measured manner be a sackable offence? Especially for one of the few talented women (out of countless others) who’s bucked the trend of female underrepresentation?

Subjectivity has been given such supremacy that the popular positions on gender and race are so riddled with inconsistencies that they suggest:

  1. Race and gender are social constructs which have no basis in biology or science
  2. Yet we must have perfectly uniform race and gender diversity across the most desirable occupations, because race and gender are important variables in these equations
  3. This is because people of different races and genders bring different experiences and perspectives to the table
  4. Yet we must never talk about the fact that different people are inclined towards different experiences, and that this shapes who they are—especially if talking about this distracts from “white guilt”

But why does this all matter—why play this game of semantics?

Because the are real problems in the world, which need real solutions. I’m going to shun political correctness and talk about those problems.

Incarceration rates among black people in western societies are high. Women are underrepresented in high-paying jobs (though this is not the same as a gender pay gap)—and we mustn’t forget that men are overrepresented in jobs where people are most likely to die. Rape is too high—I won’t quote stats because I don’t care if there’s one rape a year, that’s still too many. Mental health problems take many lives every year—especially men’s. Young, working class men represent (arguably) the most economically under-privileged group in the UK.

And these are just a few of the problems we face.

Any good scientist (or problem solver) will tell you that to change an outcome, you must first accurately diagnose its cause. If you try to affect the wrong cause, you will not reverse the negative outcome.

This is why I’m so opposed to the politicisation of these issues. When we politicise them, people stop looking for answers and start looking for scapegoats. Throw the exaltation of subjectivity into the mix and you get a recipe for obscurantism and ego tripping.

Meanwhile, people are still suffering the very real consequences of these problems.

This is not a game where the blacks win and the whites lose, or the women win and the men lose. It’s a reality where we all win or lose together—because there’s only one Earth and we *all* have to share it.

It may well turn out, upon thorough investigation, that men and white people are to blame for 90% of the world’s problems… but we currently have no proof, just feelings. So, thorough investigation must come nonetheless.

Even in English criminal law, the condemnation of one person requires the accumulation of near-insurmountable evidence. You generally need actus reus (proof that a criminal act was committed) and mens rea (proof that the accused wilfully committed said criminal act). That means if I slip and accidentally knock a person dead, I can’t be guilty of murder (there’s no mens rea).

Yet, we so casually condemn entire groups of people?

And, to be clear, I have no political or social affiliations. This article does not exist to support one cause at the expense of the other. I think the left wing is just as full of shit as the right wing. I judge people on an individual-to-individual basis. I don’t care if you’re white, black, straight, genderqueer, conservative, liberal, nationalistic or anarchistic—if you show me kindness and openness, I will do the same.

But I find it funny that our desire for labels is so strong, we’ve labelled those who disagree with the adoption of labels . They call us “centrists”, as a slight… people who are too spineless to “pick a side”, I guess. As if we’re somehow in-between this stupid, unworkable idea and that other stupid, unworkable idea.

I’m not a centrist. I’m saying I’m not even on the same spectrum. The damn thing is broken.

I’m saying when you let go of the need to be right and focus on what the world needs to get right, you might see that the answer is no one has a good enough answer yet—and

we all need to keep looking. Hard.
