Behold – a nappy changer!
I’ve considered for long that the majority of anarchists in the UK today do not want social change – they just want more people to be like them…..to share the same diet, music,dress, way of living from organic shopping to home schooling. On Saturday at Bristol’s Anarchist Bookfair the Class WAR stall was selling lighters with the inscription ‘Burn the rich’. One of the moral minority delivered a lecture on the dangers of lighters ‘encouraging smoking’ before being told to Fuck Off to the ‘babies dont need nappies’ workshop.The moral minority seems to have taken over the role of the church in its zealous lifestyle policing. Often this will take on a profoundly anti-scientific base. An ‘anarchist’ I was talking to the other day failed to share my happiness that cervical cancer jabs were now available to all young women. No – she sounded like the catholic church in the middle ages……..it was all a government plot, vaccination was a killer……..a mumbo jumbo mix of the anti MMR jab bollocks that has so frightened the middle classes courtesy of the Daily Mail and Private Eye. Vaccination has saved billions of lives – its good news for humanity comrades! But no -anarchists can see only skullduggery – we cant bring ourselves to share good news. Science took us out of the dark ages of religion and superstition. Believing vitamin pills cure Aids is no less new age mumbo jumbo. Streptomycin saved my life when I was a toddler.Lets hear it for Sir Alexander Fleming. Organic shopping is a lifestlye choice for those where there is a food surplus – trying to inflict ‘traditional farming methods’on Africa while millions starve is not just a self absorbed fantasy but leads to not enough food being grown to feed millions in Africa. GM crops could sort this out. There I’ve said it – Blasphemy!
