Indeed!! We need to weed out these parasitical 'takers' and reward those who deserve it, either through hard work and ability, and/or poverty, due to circumstances out with of their control, such as the babies currently dying in Somalia, and their families.

That's why, if you can, it helps to be as self-sufficient as possible, by building your own 'little island', which largely cocoons you from the worst excesses of modern life and today's 'rat race'.
I'm sure that an agreement could be arrived at with regard to a new paradigm of politics, but we are all polarised into a position of self protection because of the predatory nature of society as it is.
When you're largely divorced from being meaningfully affected by most political decisions, and virtually immune from the pressures of modern day life, mostly in control of your destiny [and essentially your head is in a happy place], it definitely helps one look at things more objectively
Waste-of-space fuckers like that need to be made to SIGN on the dole instead!!
BTW one Lord left his taxi engine running whilst he signed in for the day, and immediately after signing left in it.
There's way too much free-loading, shady dealings and 'creaming off the pie', carried out by members of 'the establishment', which is rotten to the core. Like I've said before, we're long overdue a revolt by the people, against the system, and I'd be up there as the ring leader of the new revolution!!!
