Live from the apex of Mont Perelin*

Breaking news, brothers and sisters!!!
An eagle eyed cub reporter in the hated mainstream press has inadvertently noticed:

"A cabal of intellectuals and elitists hijacked the economic debate, and now we are dealing with the catastrophic effects "

How did they start? A tale all too familiar to us....

"They arise in large part from a meeting that took place 60 years ago in a Swiss spa resort.

To what purpose George, to what purpose?!!!

"the real intent of the programme - the restoration of the power of the elite"

What happens if you cross this cabal?!!?

"if you disagreed, you got shot"

Coming from anyone else, this could easily be dismissed as conspiracy theory, but it can't be, because George has previously come out strongly against these things. To be consistent with his earlier teachings, These creatures would have to have:
  • just happened to be at the same meeting
  • accidentally gained their rich patrons
  • been mere bystanders in unexplained economic collapses around the world
  • and lucky that their opponents were so existentially incompetent
Clearly this man has come a long way in a short time, he is one of us now, and we must cherish him. As one disciple of the shayler being's previous life said:

"I tell you, there will be more joy in conspiracy heaven over one reporter who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance."

While there is no doubt joy in conspiracy heaven tonight,I now fear for this brave truth teller (remember our queen of hearts!!!)..I say, hats off to this smug,floppy haired cunt plucky, incisive conspirobuddy, and never forget his "message":

The world is organised in the interests of a small, sinister CABAL......

I'm undecided as to whether George is exhibiting the traits of Conspiraloonery™ or Networkaloonery™.

What the fuck is going on - first Fisk decides he has questions about 9/11 and now Monbiot's chomping at the bit.

Which one of them's going to write the first "Queen is a lilzard story".

How long before Monbiot announces himself as the second part of the living Jeshua consciousness that fills David Shayler's body now he's lost a few stone? (Shayler that is, not Jesus.)

The Antagonist said...

Reflecting on George's scribblings, "Anti-Neo-Liberalism" doesn't have quite the same ring, or efficacy, to it as "Anti-Capitalist".

A subtle deviation on Monbiot's part from the traditional leftist structural analysis in favour of leading by carrot up an 'elite' garden path in a cul-de-sac.

The sticks, and the armoured men wielding them, arrive a little later in the scene.

That's true, George has always been an anti crony capitalist. He's good at pointing out individual perfidities but then that's just reporting really.
He observes the symptoms but sees them as an infection, rather than a systemic, congenital disease.
I see it as a sort of dickensian outlook, if only people would play by the rules, get on their bicycles etc, it would be alright.
The article should have been called "I've just read this book", it has a rather saucer eyed quality to it. David Harvey, who wrote it, is a fairly unreconstructed marxist and one I rate pretty highly.
As dave macgowan said about america

"Of course, we don't call it that. We like to call it 'democracy.' Nonetheless,it looks an awful lot like fascism."

Huey Long said much the same earlier last century.

You're right though, its Networkaloonery™ which is to Conspiraloonery™ what anti neo liberalism is to capitalism.
Its a distinction the comfortable choose to make to mask what they don't wish to question.

Bloody hell, what's happened here? We've unwittingly stumbled into a sensible conversation about the ongoing failures of the modern day left.

These ShaylerBrandSandals are very comfortable indeed.

I hear the latest designs have each sandal pre-fitted with upward-pointing nails.

paul said...

That's impossible. Any real,proper lefty will tell you that structural anlysis is quite beyond the benighted conspiraloon.
It's their business and they have a duty of care towards it. A sort of ideological protectionism. Anything that might occur to us can only be LEFT 2.0™, an obviously inferior product. As a wiser head than me says:
"The truth of capitalist anarchy is no one is in control."
Personally, I believe we should be seeking out mainstream loonery, to show how much we have in common with the real world that spurns us.

Would sir like a large (Shayler capacity) wooden cross to go with that?

Amen to that Brother
