Welcome to Airstrip One

People have been preemptively arrested as terrorists by the police and imprisoned without trial, for possibly exerting their right to protest. People have been preemptively arrested as terrorists by the police and imprisoned without trial, for possibly exerting their right to protest. Their crime is opposing the ruling class wedding and its cult of personality during the tremendous economic injustice of its government. They have been victims of imprisonment without trial and police brutality for the opinions they are known to hold. They are deemed guilty of thoughtcrime.

And no wonder it took Englishman Thomas Paine to instigate the democratic secular revolution of republicanism in the United States, viewing the fawningly hysterical trend, that is truly reborn Empire Loyalism in America.


"What hope for a country where people will camp out for three days to glimpse the Royal Couple? Where one store clerk refers to another as his ‘colleague’? … God save the Queen and a fascist regime … a flabby, toothless fascism to be sure. Never go too far in any direction is the basic law on which Limey-Land is built. The Queen stabilizes the whole stinking shithouse and keeps a small elite of wealth and privilege on top ….
The English have gone soft in the outhouse. England is like some stricken beast too stupid to know it is dead. Ingloriously foundering in its own waste products, the backlash and bad karma of empre. You see what we owe to Washington and the Valley Forge boys for getting us out from under this den of snobbery and accent, this ladder where everyone stomps discreetly on the hands below them:
“Pardon me, old chap, but you aren’t you getting just a bit ahead of yourself in rather an offensive manner?”
… The English thing worked too well and too long. They’ll never get all that ballast of unearned privilege up into space. Who wants that dumped in his vicinity? They get out of a spaceship and start looking desperately for inferiors."
