The UK’s ‘Greatest National Threat to (homeland) Security’. Afghanistan!


 “After 13 years, eight of them involving bloody fighting in Helmand, Britain’s war in Afghanistan is finally over” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-29744972

The weapon of the Taliban. ‘The immediate threat to take over our land’!
A knowledge of, and the respect for ‘anthropology’ (Primitive Man, “How did Primitive Man think”? Nomadism vs Sedentism) and not of God – might be of some importance. It is rather a ‘long word’ and a quite a ‘large subject’ for the UK’s/Bush’s administration to fully understand. Also, there is not really a lot of money in it or some ‘greater strategic placement in the region’ (oil and gas – Iraq Oil Minister agrees that the USA came into his country purely for oil)! Does the UK support countries that have any ‘gross human rights record’, worth in all, or in some respects, much worse than that of the Taliban?
In Iraq under the USA and UK, now, is supposed to have; a worse human rights record than that which was and at any time, under the horrendous dictatorship of Saddam Hussein! Are the abuses in human rights of the Taliban (the ones we hear so much about – just propaganda?) much worse than in some of the countries that the USA/UK do readily support and arm. And, how bad is it all getting within our own countries’ with their constant and steady march towards totalitarianism. Is there any moral high ground that is worth any sacrifice, and on our behalf, for any human rights or has this been recently lost (Bush and Blair)? Was ‘it’ ever their at all? And, even; in any of our world history? 
A, “will-o’-the-wisp”: a ‘scientifically’ correct definition for all our ‘war like’ history (except that lying in – myth, legend, and government propaganda)? Example: an Afghanistan teacher with his head cut of by the Taliban for teaching girls to read and write – the use of the weapon below and other unspeakable devises used to kill, maim, and blow the arms and legs off an ‘enemy’ (innocents, women, and children).

Reaper Reaper ‘unmanned plane’.
‘Our’ latest (unmanned) weapon to spy on and destroy theirs!
 
Another reason to hate war! Afghanistan is a ‘cowards war of unreal-ism’. Psy-ops http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7464430.stm
Pakistan Taleban ‘execute spies’
 
Why we should not glorify any war or bask its presence; in any form – in the present or the ‘past tense’!
 
Why we should not (ever) believe in our ‘modern’ government’s (USA’s, UK’s, NATO’s) and any other ‘propaganda of warmongering’.
It is very unfortunate that young people are dragged into this ‘very badly managed war’ by their peers: who by knowing history and having experience, should know very much better! However, young people should be capable of making their own minds up to whether this is a ‘just war’ or have they all become impotent? Or, by having no experience – they think it is a ‘fun war’ for their own excitement and/or adventure’ or have they been made impotent by the violence and threats by all our government’s control and its ‘steady marching’ towards totalitarianism!
‘Social mobility’ has been ‘blocked’ or declining in our modern Britain, with ‘Childhood Welfare’, at, or next to, ‘third world levels’ (lowest in 27 industrialised countries). A pointless, powerless, thus: ‘impotent electorate’, without the access to balloting with ‘positive abstention’; making any voting pointless except on local or area (single) matters – democracy having been destroyed and at its worst! “Never has so much power been in the hands of so few”.
Impotency and Dangers

“There is endless talk of enterprise and creativity, but actually we are more and more impotent; we are more and more restrained by centralised standards, targets and perverse incentives, dreamt up, very often, by quangoes, both here and in Brussels. Because of this, nothing is ever anybody’s fault. It is the system – the state – that is to blame, and there is no way to hold either to account. That makes people angry. Or rather, it is at long last beginning to. This mentality is extraordinarily deep-rooted; it will take an immense and radical struggle to tear it out. That will take enormous energy and courage, more than any political party appears to have today. Meanwhile, perhaps, there will indeed be more civil unrest in this country. http://www.minettemarrin.com/

” Ref, ‘Quangoes of Religiosity’ ‘suiting the meddling aspirational middle class’!

“The mechanism of successful propaganda may be roughly summed up as follows. Men accept the propagandist’s theology or political theory, because it apparently justifies and explains the sentiments, and desires, evoked in them by the circumstances. The theory may, of course, be completely absurd from a scientific point of view, but this is of no importance so long as men believe it to be true. Having accepted the theory, men will work in obedience to its precepts even in times of emotional tranquillity. Moreover, the theory will often cause them to perform in cold blood acts, which they would hardly have performed even in a state of emotional excitement”. Huxley. Ref, “Why we have this irresistible itch to meddle” after 1946.

Interesting – severe prolonged stress (childhood ‘abuse’ – UK’s government policy of working (single) mother – child to nursery policy and the government’s child poverty – inaction and low support level: well below the poverty line (UK). In ‘primitive people’: low Cortisol = Addison’s Disease Osama bin-Laden may be an Addisonian. Lawrence Wright (The Looming Tower, 2006, p. 139) notes that bin-Laden manifests all the key symptoms, such as “low blood pressure, weight loss, muscle fatigue, stomach irritability, sharp back pains, dehydration, and an abnormal craving for salt”. Bin-Laden is known to have been consuming large amounts of the drug Arcalion to treat his symptoms.

T. S. Eliot. Wilhelm Muller. Albert Camus.
Modern nations are driven by powerful forces along the roads of power and domination . . . They hardly need our help and, for the moment, they laugh at attempts to hinder them. They will, then, continue. But I will ask only this simple question: what if these forces wind up in a dead end, what if that logic of History on which so many now rely turns out to be a will o’ the wisp?”

Into the deepest mountain chasms
A will o’ wisp lured me;
How to find a way out
Doesn’t worry me much.

I’m used to going astray,
And every way leads to the goal.
Our joys, our sorrows,
Are all a will o’ the wisp’s game !

Through the mountain stream’s dry channel
I wend my way calmly downward.
Every river finds its way to the ocean,
And every sorrow to its grave.

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
