Monbiot : This government hates you and your country

1

The Tories are selling off the very fabric of our Nation, in “the national interest”. Inviting in the Russian oligarchs and the Saudi oil princes and let’s them buy up the very fabric of the nation we need to live in.

In a video published yesterday on the Double Down News website, George Monbiot highlights the hypocrisy of a government and establishment "in complete meltdown and falling apart in front of our eyes".

Monbiot is a key player in leading the charge for the grand correction that is sorely needed. His recent book 'Out of the Wreckage' has been touted by the Campfire community as a handbook for what needs to be done. 

He muses on the "instructive and interesting way" in which current events are unfolding.

"The people who claim to be the guardians of the nation - the upholders of patriotism - are actually the biggest subversives in the country"

Even the Queen is subverting the national interest

He asks  'What is patriotism supposed to be?'

"The Tories are selling off the very fabric of our Nation, in “the national interest. Inviting in the Russian oligarchs and the Saudi oil princes and let’s them buy up the very fabric of the nation we need to live in."

Some interesting questions, to which we might be well advised to address the answers.

In his Guardian column this week, Monbiot pitches for increased levels of 'informed choice' after questioning the wildfire dissemination of discredited stories after a chemical weapons massacre in Syria"

"What do we believe? This is the crucial democratic question. Without informed choice, democracy is meaningless. This is why dictators and billionaires invest so heavily in fake news. Our only defence is constant vigilance, rigour and scepticism. But when some of the world’s most famous crusaders against propaganda appear to give credence to conspiracy theories, you wonder where to turn."

"Politics in the US and elsewhere is now dominated by wild conspiracy theories and paranoia – the narrative platform from which fascism arises."
