REMEMBER REMEMBER the Fifth of November

GUNPOWDER

TREASON

and PLOT

I see no reason why gunpowder,

treason should ever be forgot ...


On the 5th November 1605 Guy Fawkes was caught in the cellars of

the Houses of Parliament with several dozen barrels of gunpowder.

Guy Fawkes was subsequently tried as a traitor with his

co-conspirators for plotting against the government.


Fawkes was sentenced to death and the form of the execution was one of

the most horrendous ever practised (hung, drawn and quartered) which

reflected the serious nature of the crime of treason.

 

In the same year the town of Santa Fé, now in the State of New Mexico, was being

established by Juan de Oñate as the second oldest white settlement in the United States

and pre-dates the settlement of Jamestown by two years and the landing of the

Mayflower in Boston Harbour by fifteen years - which became the scene of the beginning

of another revolution - which no doubt influenced the evolution of collective

consciousness.

Four hundred years later Tony Glover has written in The Business magazine that -

"Hollywood has come to Soho, turning a cottage industry into one of the fast-growing

sectors of London's booming creative community. Soho is attracting a growing slice of

Hollywood's production budgets thanks to the quality of its army of visual effects artists

and Britain's generous tax credits system for film production. It is a business where there

are no giants but lots of profitable worker-ants. "

 
V for Vendetta 

"Dozens of these digital visual effects companies have sprung up in recent years. Walk along Wardour Street and turn right into Sheraton Street for the offices of visual effects company, Cinesite, founded and owned by Kodak.

Its recent credits include the Fox remake of the classic Omen 666, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Warner Brothers' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and, perhaps most spectacular of all, V for Vendetta, which was set in a London of the future, starred a latter-day Guy Fawkes and climaxed with the blowing up of the Palace of Westminster, by special effects only, of course. At the last official count in 2005, Britain's film post-production employed 4,400 people. In the past year, the number has soared.

Matt Johnson, visual effects supervisor at Cinesite, says: "Throw a stick from any window in Soho and it will bounce off the heads of at least four special effects artists."

Vi Veri Veniversvm Vivus Vici


In the context of Evolution v Revolution - on this day of balancing the positions of Guy Fawkes and V for Vendetta - and in consideration of the fact that EVIL is the power of knowledge without humility - should we not, at long last, be considering - the replacement of an - OLD ORDER "MINDSET" - exemplified by a natural suppression of individual creative thinking - in a world of East/West, North/South, the Establishment and the people - a world in which real technological development is constrained by old order attitudes, concepts and thinking - into a - NEW ORDER ENVIRONMENT - based on the concept of the world being comprised of individuals, families of individuals, nations of families and a family of nations developing their thinking skills to enable the seeing into and understanding of things - such that we can collaboratively turn - information into knowledge - knowledge into ideas - ideas into wealth - for the collective mutual benefit of global society.

 

In the OLD model - science always led the way for business.

The universal requirement in establishing the NEW model - is that business, science and the consumer work collaboratively in combination for the collective good of the whole. ONE of Bill Gates ‘Management Policies' states -

 

"Eliminate politics, by giving everybody the SAME message"

PEOPLE should NOT be afraid

of their governments

GOVERNMENTS should BE

afraid of their peoples

THANKS be to GOD for

the existence of GOD

Our members of parliament (MPs) now are largely professional politicians, which is the root of the problem. They go into politics to make, if not money, then certainly a
decent living. Because they are no longer considered to be implicitly
honourable they have to enter details of their earnings and spendings
in all sorts of registers, where they can be policed like convicts on
parole. Desperate to raise cash for campaigning or for their parties,
they seem to have abdicated a sense of what is proper or right, and instead suck in the money from whichever reservoir happens to offer it.

If you really want to be immiserated in gloom, go to a library and look up
an MP at random in Dod’s Parliamentary Companion, and just see the sort
of person you are dealing with. They boast about careers as student
politicians. They have worked as research assistants and special
advisers and have been local councillors. And that’s just the Tories:
Labour and Lib Dem MPs tend to be even less qualified, unless you count
working for a trade union or lecturing in an ex-polytechnic as a
measure of greatness.


Our coarsened nation is thus matched with coarsened politicians. The few who are not stand out like beacons, and we revere them. The
rest are grasping, expensive for the state to run, achieve little, and
are rewarded chronically for failure. They have little idea how
to behave, are incapable of acting decently when found out in doing
wrong, and see no harm in consorting with the most shocking people.
That is where professionalism has got us: politics is no longer a fit calling for a respectable young or middle-aged person.

And as we survey this swamp of oily people on the make, whatever can it portend for democracy ?

REMEMBER REMEMBER the Fifth of NovemberINDEED … particularly in the context of the selfish sophistication, arrogance and greed that has led to the farce, which was the opening of the Fifth Terminal at London Heathrow Airport yesterday.

What would Andrew Cohen have thought if he had been there ?

WE MUST NOW, individually and collectively, begin to truly understand that …

IT IS NOT just about holistic thinking

IT IS
about an acceptance of the infinite consequences of the interdependence of independence within that holistic thinking
