As reported in the Daily Telegraph
We agree with this
“Was the Labour leadership election rigged”
Of course it was. You don’t think Miliband, a total nonentity, could have got there on merit, do you?
Same with Cameron – but put in office by the Tory Old Guard as a fetch and carry boy.
They don’t have policy and strategy. They just follow orders.
The whole system is a stitch-up – not just on the Left, but on the Right as well – with the primary purpose of facilitating society’s self-exploitation to the advantage of its ruling/political elite and their favoured clients in business, the media, and lets not forget, academia.
As employees and favoured beneficiaries of the state, academics have always sought to rationalise, disguise and legitimise the perverted Darwinian nature of the state. This is why we are in the situation we are in: those we look to as experts and authorities (academics), now, just as in medieval times, are mainly concerned with defending their “patron state” and the status quo, on which they depend for their own privileged status.
The so-called social sciences are still stuck in a pre-Copernican, i.e. pre-Darwinian, dark age, from which only genuine science can free them.
