International Resource Management

Forgive me if I repeat myself. Now our beloved leader has seamlessly passed from planner and wager of aggressive war (see Neuremberg) to middle eastern peace envoy - (oh how we laughed) - I would just like to post this thread as a little reminder of the acts we came to know him by and the political reality he helped to usher in. Names, places and species have been changed to protect the innocent, and other stuff chucked in for (what I like to think of as) comic effect.

Access all areas?

It's all about access, isn't it: access to power, access to money, access to clean water and elected representatives, access to hard drugs and cable TV. Even as I sit here I am accessing the international coffee trade and all the many and varied interwoven components of the global hot buttered toast market. In my attempts to access a global audience I have accessed the internet after accessing cheap credit and out-of-town shopping facilities. This has not been as successful, tasteful or productive as the toast excercise, but it is a truism of modern business that 4 out of 5 global conspiracies fail within their first year of trading. International competition - it's a bugger! Pre-industrial conspiracies were more of a local affair and more straightforward to set up - 5 blokes in a field in Tolpuddle and you've got yourself a collectivist steamroller (or 5 dead blokes in a field). These days you need access and for that you need.......well, if I knew that...!

What did you do in the war, Daddy?

A cheap shot, but nonetheless....

Fearless Ferret -Ace Reporter

Michel Foucault's theory of power is a concensual and circulatory affair: All that is necessary for the triumph of orthodoxy is that 'self evident' truths are propogated in such osmotic abundance as to block the inception/passage of any alternative possibilities. People continue to do things that they believe to be "correct" by popular agreement and common practice. Thus conformity is the given that grounds the use and abuse of institutional and collective power in all its forms - making it unthinkable to perform outside the established norm.

Now here's a cartoon with a big pig.

From Our Mediaevel archive:- After a lifetime of uncertificated, freelance fornication, covetousness, and general sinning, all the "irredeemably" damned have to do is purchase one of our wide range of bone- fide, get-out-of-hell-free indulgence certificates - from one of our many splendidly outfitted and divinely sanctioned outlets, and everything's immediately fandabbydozy. Mass-murderer? Torturer? Serial Parking Offender? God can't touch you for it. It's watertight, honest. Endowment mortgages also available.

I have put all the CLIMATE CHANGE CARTOONS, both spots and strips, into one seperate blog -

This will make them easier to find and to access. I will post the climate change stuff, and associated activity, in both blogs.

Growing pains

Growth. It's an article of faith and an uncriticised given in our culture. We get bigger and bigger and bigger is better. To hell with less, more is more and only more will do. We cannot let a little thing like global catastrophe get in the way of ever-expanding consumerism. How else will we purchase our shaky, half-arsed identities?

There's plenty more where we came from.

I'm sure I have nothing new to say on the subject, but that doesn't normally hold me back - so here goes.....Don't we already have enough trouble with narcissism, narrow mindedness and stupidity without putting it centre stage and genuflecting at it. I find the whole Big Brother phenomenon rather depressing in a scary and decadent/apocalyptic way. What a formula - get together a bunch of deluded wannabes (not wannados) and leave them to stew in a cauldron of gossip, pheremones and self-obsession, poking occassionaly with a poisoned shtick. Televisual gold, my son!

I'd like to have all those brain cells back now please. I didn't realise that I would need them ALL.

Philosophy for Fun and Profit

We really are an awfully clever species, are we not. I know that dolphins are quite bright, as are our great ape cousins, but we humans are singularly cleverer than all the boxes of all the frogs you could ever possibly wish to shake a faggot of metaphorical sticks at. Name me a mollusc that could construct a needlessly convoluted sentence like that with such sophistic smugness! When it comes to brains we are quite definitely the dog's bollocks. That will undoubtedly serve as great comfort to us all as we look down from our ivory towers and loft conversions to watch the rats and roaches take over the shit-hole that our unprecedented brilliance is in the process of constructing. Animals, eh? They're just rubbish.

The proposed M6 widening scheme will probably end up costing upwards of a million quid for every 32 yards! You could build 3 and a half average schools for every mile of widening. Nice to know we've got our priorities right, isn't it? Below are some 'toons for the Group Against Motorway Expansion (G.A.M.E). Glenn Baxter's got a lot to answer for!
