One of the things I realised at LSE was how universal the symbolism of the lone parent is. We are an object onto which they project their own dysfunction and lashing out at us makes policy makers who cant see us feel they have addressed something. This is not an unusual thing. We will always seek to do this to explain events we dont like, unless we reflect. What is abundantly clear is the reason austerity did what it did was that the left, the guardian, the Labour Party and our trade unuions had decided this was what would happen. The more we suffered the more their self image would be boosted, the more strenuously they would prevent dis cussion of political consensus, the more we suffer. We are not allowed to challenge them. Our trade union structures form the basis of an aristocracy and they want this power. As they have no connection to us outside taking our money they dont see being accountable t us as part of their role. They had decided who was to be targeted and as they were not aware of the rule of law that has evolved as the baseline of citizenship it was just rolled over. Now we see how successful that has been as crisis force policy makers to address what institutions actually do.
I wanted to talk about the danger of creating an identity for yourself as inherently good and the reason it is so bad. When you do that you place yourself at the centre of the story, and make your identuty the story and the people ‘speak for’ are required to be grateful and not tell you you are being an abusive cunt. We get held down by the left while we are hit, and they expect our gratitude. We cant even discuss the way the left have done this, we cant challeng the way the Guardian decided austerity should removce citizenship because of the way they define themselves. We cant damage their identity by challenging austerity or discussing political consensu they are part of.
The culture who use single parents as on object identify themselves as being nice, with anythin they suggest be imposed on us being inately beneficial. The only conversarion that these people can cope with is one where they are a mediating class and we should be grateful for their intervention. They need this identity and then they gaslight and abuse and as we saw with austerity, and now see with Brexit, they absorb discussion into anything impacting us into a discussion of their own identity. That citizenship changed in 1945 doesnt matter to them because in their class they only ever saw thath as temporary and never addressed that they have no function if that is not the case,. Thuis is why our citizenship was so disposable to them. If we say this is causing us harm as you see with the likes of Owen JOnes and Zoe Williams, they can blank thaht out and say its unreasonably attacking them. Our lack of gratitude is the problem then,.
You can;t ask the likes of Zoe Williams to reflect on the way they are manufacturing this, because they dont know. And because they cant reflect on their own identity they dont realise that we actually dont have a mediationg class, and this is not actually normal or their right. You will be arguing with these people about deaths in the tens of thousands and all they can hear is an insult to their identty. That’s how this works. I dont know what the final death toll will be. I think we will find out but I dont see they have had a problem doing it when its thousands, and I dont see they would have a problem if the numver exceeded that by a long way.
You cant discuss the way the posh left and the Guardian decided we would be abused by the state, because they wont even acknowledge that is what htey do. Asking them to reflect on the seriousness of the situation and the power they exercise is bullying because they are inherently good therefore acknowledging they just did this is impossible. So they gaslight and abuse and demonstrate power dynamics. They cant reflect on piwer because it might reveal they are illegitimate, and so they wont. You cant point oyt that in a democrcay they work for you and not the other way round because these people from a class who never thoughht citizenship for the people they perceived as ‘the poor’ was real and never once accepted we were who they worked for. You cant point out that the Guardian uses a trsut fund and the LSE is the preserve of rich kids, cos it interrupts their vusion of themselves as improvers of the poor.You cant mention that an improver of the poor reliant on elite social closure in this day and age is unlikely to have a function for long. They experience narcissistic innury when your reality reminds them their identity is false.
Whatever the crisis now, the mediating class that did this are done. Labour cant be elected till they address this and the GUardian and New Statesman wont survive this. The problem is they are holding the country hostage and their epitaph is the way they are holding us hostage now. It turns out Labour, the Guardian and their class never wanted the working class to be enfranchised and were willing to work to undo it \t the first opportunity,. Evolutions in power dynamics cannot be undone. You can just abuise people to say they dont matter, but you better hope they dont because otherwise that is not sustainable, We are now going to see if the rule of law ever mattered and this country is fucked if it didnt. =
The Labour left have worked to prevent people discussing austerity, showed our trade unions are now the property of posh kids and they are determined that if its not the ‘brutal’ Tories, it has to be the extrtemeisrt of the Labour left. As always the policies are virtually the same.The counmtry are saying fuck off. Twitter messages emotionally blackmailing people with Tory govt are on the rounds. So we have an interesting situation where the only party not looking to address welfare, the party who really need ius to suffer want the suffering to help them. They think this is their moment.
These people are disappearing into a pit of their own narcissism., I identiify as will end up the death cry of the left. They are slowly finding out you cant just identify as someones repesentation and enforce it and enforce it. The problem is that these cunts are now locking us into a hard brexit and still refusing to let us break the bullshit left and right debate that is about their identity and nothing else. By the time they have stopped holding us hostage the country will be broken. Cunts.
