Ben Delicious reports from Paris: Here’s a cracking opener to my list of silly questions that will never get a proper answer. Or any answer for that matter. How about the Rolling Stones packing it in? For good. Without all that silly talk that they are packing it in but who knows what might happen in the future. And then come back again.
No, I’m talking about the Stones just walking away and never returning. They’re old and wrinkly and can’t really perform all that well. Never could actually.
And then there’s more: how about cracking down on the gaming industry that produces some of the most horrendous propaganda of graphic violence and Satanic imagery imaginable, targeting it at children and young people with no problems? Have you seen the creeps behind these computer games? They all look really weird, in a sick and twisted sort of way. No emotion in their blinkers, no sign of life. And we all know what that means, don’t we? It means they’ve sold their souls to you know who. So they can only stoop lower. Not a chance of them changing their nasty ways. So why not end this whole farce?
Moving swiftly to more serious matters: why don’t we cut that crap with democracy and people power and create a simple system of recalling elected politicians if they screw up? That would be something, wouldn’t it? Because these creeps get elected on false promises that they don’t even intend to keep and then cling to their cushy jobs for years, avoiding responsibility for their many sins. Why not introduce a system of petitions that would allow to get rid of these incompetent and corrupt people? It would save us all so many problems.
And how about a bit of urban dramatism? How about dismantling all the buildings that have been erected since the 1950s? Because they are all s..t, aren’t they? I dare you to show me any building built in the 1960s and onwards that looks proper. You won’t be able to. Modernist architects used the damage caused by the last Big War to impose their hideous lifeless creations on major capitals. It’s embarrassing really to see these monstrosities towering beside the grand old buildings of the more distant past. It’s criminal really. So why not get rid of them? It would make our lives so much better.
Moving slowly to things that really make sense. How about banning sex and violence on the box. For good. Because they have never had anything to do with freedom of expression. Show me a single film or a sitcom where sex and violence added any value. You won’t be able to. Because they are – sex and violence – just time fillers. They are usually badly performed and don’t move the plot anywhere. Let all those creeps in the TV industry think of something worthwhile to show. It makes sense actually.
Or how about this: why not make promotion of dope illegal. Not just selling it and using it but claiming that it’s not really all that dangerous and should be made legal. Now that would be really something. For the anything goes mafia that plugs this sort of rubbish consists mostly of people who either do dope themselves or are surrounded by people who use drugs. And while we are on it, why not ban all people, who have ‘experimented with drugs’ in the past, from holding public office? That would help prevent them from causing damage, because there is no such thing as a former drug addict. They tend to get back to their nasty ways.
And finally: how about ripping the whole bloody banking system apart and kicking out the crooks who have turned it into a money making operation for themselves while millions and hundreds of millions suffer? That would be a good move by any standards. Because the current system will crash soon anyway. So it’s better to dismantle it than let it go up in smoke.
