"It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government."
Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
Christopher Booker, in his Sunday column, looks back on 21 years of journalistic campaigning against all that is wrong with our country. William Langley, in the Telegraph, writes about an affront to a position that is at the heart of our democratic and parliamentary process. Many in the blogosphere rail against our political system and those that inhabit it, but to no avail. There names are known within the blogosphere and there is no need to mention them now, suffice it to say there are others spread across this nation of ours that feel as we bloggers do. For whatever reason, be it that they are not on the internet or do not read blogs - they are there.
For some time I have proposed the suggestion that it will not be possible to remove those in power through democratic means as they do not listen to those that they are supposed to represent. Those in power have control over the media, press, television and radio, which is the only means whereby the people can be informed - consequently what information is laid before the people is that which the political elite allow us to hear.
I have for some weeks now been offering the opinion that removal of those in power cannot be accomplished by democratic means, for reasons explained in the previous paragraph and proposing that this can only be accomplished by the people taking to the streets in numbers sufficient to bring home to those in power that either they change or we, the people, will change them.
In an earlier post I ended by suggesting that someone was needed to organise such a demonstration and asked for volunteers. None has been forthcoming although admittedly it is only 36 hours - at the time of writing - since that request was made. It is possible for such a demonstration to be organised - one without warning to the authorities - and one that would be a peaceful protest without placards, but would have a list of demands to be presented to Westminster.
As one who believes that the time has come to save our country from the 'communitarian hell' that the political elite have planned for us; that we have had too many words and that action is now the only alternative; it is necessary that we organise ourselves. If readers will forgive what may be construed as 'egotism' on my part, as I make no secret of my identity, it would be better if one who still retained a degree of anonomity were to put themselves forward to co-ordinate/organise such a demonstration as outlined - failing which I will 'volunteer'.
I await responses.
