The British-State “history” “syllabus” is a current and festering disgrace, has been designed on purpose with a civilisation-erasing(ours) -intent, and will have to go.
“The English were responsible for slavery” (discuss the sources given to you. Do not refer to other sources.)
“The Tudors brought war, smoking and piracy” (discuss the given account by a Spanish monk.)
“The capitalists of the Industrial Revolution exploited workers deliberately, especially children” (discuss the sources given including the extract from a novel by a writer called Charles Dickens.)
“Haig was the Butcher of the Somme” (discuss the sources given.)
“The salt tax in India was the cause of Ghandi’s rebellion and was unfair to poor Indian people” (discuss the role of modern Quangos in forced dietary-choice-editing by New Labour…(I wish))

Here’s some serious papers for British 16-year-olds, concerning what “educationists” think that these people ought to think about “The American West 1840-1895”:-

“British social and economic history” … the assumption that Trades Unions are innately a good thing, and that opposing them as infringements of property rights is bad, is taken as read:-

More to come…..
And to continue the Boss’s Day Of Small Things, I know it’s late but It says over at the Daily Express that “salt kills 40,000 people a year.”
Experts say this so it must be true.
Well I suppose we all have to die of something so it might as well taste nice. It puts the term food-fascism in a new light, and so why don’t we just send all these experts to a state-health-farm, in the far north somewhere, with nothing but boiled root vegetables to eat, that’ll fix them.
Personally I recommend tiny little wet-finger-touch-helpings of sodium monohydrogen-glutamate, as a hor-douevre. It actually tastes quite good. You can buy 500g and 1Kg shrink-packs of it at the local Chinese cash and carry in Manchester.
…”Experts said” (of course they are, of course they did.)
…and you did not speak up, for you were not a loaf, a sausage or a corn-flake…
……for he’s on their radar now, and they’ve just realised he’s actually, underneath, a businessman trying to make money by selling stuff people like the taste of. They’ll come and get him as well, in the end. Look what happened to the early friends of the French revolution.
You can’t spend 125 years on the telly, haranguing people about “freshness” and “organic” and “local food” and “healthy” nonsense, and tipping shedloads of fresh greens _without salt_ into vats of boiling stuff, without getting shitty mud on your clothes off the Food-Police and Gramscian dieticians and “choice editors”.
They’ll come for you, Jamie old cock, if you stray so much as a grain of salt off-line, in their eyes. They are dirty, bad bad people, and they’ll want you dead, along with the rest of us helots, ‘coz you betrayed them.
And in the article we find also this:- (wonder if CASH is a fake-charity…)
Loyd Grossman has also been named and shamed in a study published by Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH).Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1227083/Jamie-Olivers-pasta-sauce-salt-TEN-bags-crisps.html#ixzz0Wd6UcUPp
The whole of this post from Junkfood Science is worth reading, for it perspectivises the more or less articulate refutations which a lot of us have suspected and been trying to focus for all you lot, over the last couple of years.
If libertarians are at all serious, then I’m not suggesting that we should shoot all State-food-bansturbators immediately – in the way Stalin accused an obsequious IRA delegation of not being “serious” because the IRA “had not shot any bishops yet”. But…..we ought to make more of the point that if a human being owns his own body, then it’s surely axiomatic that he can place whatever foodstuffs – or anything else whatever for that matter – that he chooses, inside it. If certain foods are to be “banned”, then this negates that principle and we have become the State’s Farm Animals in very truth. Cigarettes, (any) alcohol, tobacco and (all) drugs, too, are part of the same argument.
Part of the problem of course is that modern pithed people do not understand the economy of, the present dynamics of, and the ultimate reason for, the DHSS. They think that “it costs” the DHSS money to treat people. No analysis is done of where the money has arrived from. Of course, if you are a DHSS bureaucrat, then it “costs” you some of your ultimate yearly bonus if you have to irritatingly spend some of it on some doctors or beds or medicines, to treat the people who supplied the taxation-take in the first place. But if you pith the population, employing techniques such as “good television”, then they won’t realise the conjuring trick you have performed. Furthermore, they will go about supporting you, saying that “smokers are selfish ‘coz they cost the NHS money” and other similar witticisms which televise well on the Wireless Tele Vision thingy machine.
I am afraid I can find no use for this machine at all these days, except to view videos of The Lord Of The Rings, a couple of times a year – that’s quite enough too. Or perhaps as a source for weird electronic parts suddenly needed to complete a project, and Maplin’s closed. Can anybody illuminate my problem please?
