Millionaire Cameron is always mouthing off about the “Big Society” it is his buzz word, but we all know that it is just a load of vacuous crap in an attempt to fool everybody into thinking that cuts to social spending will make everything just lovely for everybody. His deluded vision is one of everybody working as an entrepreneur, making lots of money and having lots of time to devote to charity work in the community, helping the poor. Of course in his illusionary society there will be no poor as we will all be working away furiously making pots of money.
In his imaginary world of the “Big Society” we are all supposed to come together and do more voluntary work in the community, at the same time as his millionaire buddy, Osborne, has set in motion at least a 6% cut in funding for voluntary projects, The funding for voluntary projects is set to loose £734 million. So there you have the millionaire twins plan for the “Big Society”, cut the funds for voluntary projects by 6% and encourage more people to set up lots more voluntary organisations.
Lies and lies and more lies followed by damn lies, as they decimate our living standards to feed the bond markets and their millionaire chums. I’m no lover of the right wing labour bunch but a quote from Tessa Jowell, the shadow Cabinet Office minister, points in the direction of anarchist principles, “What people want is not the vacuous promise of a big society but a good society where everybody does their bit and is helped to do so to improve their community and create benefits for everyone. But a big society that cuts people loose, leaving them to stand on their own, will never work.” Come on Tessa, take the next step, a society based on mutual aid, not profit. People can run their own communities without having to carry a bunch of over privileged pampered parasites on our back. We can organise our communities to see to the needs of all our people without paying for the corporate world to pollute and plunder our planet. We don’t need you baby, you and your type and the problem, not the answer.
