Slavery Is Abolished in the UK. Is it?
History tells us that slavery predates written records, and it has existed in many cultures, many places, many countries and amid many tribes and many races. Beautiful. How beautiful that it is. Isn’t it dear folks?
One who works in Britain for £6.50 per hour, like I do, may say that I’m not a slave. He may say it with a lazy London accent ‘nah,’ as another one may say it in a strict foreign accent ‘no’ or in a mediocre slow-motion, swollen, puffy accent ‘no way man, that’s not true, no, not at all man, I’m not a slave.’
But, after you explain to them a few things about the evil genius philosophy of the wise and the clever that use unique, antique mirrors to reflect the past and create the present, about human history that is all about the master and the slave, about the oppressed and the oppressor, the exploited and the exploiter and how they coax the simple people out with £6.50 per hour when £6.50 costs a bottle of water in some shops, bars and pubs in London town and around. Then…
Then, only then, at the end of the day, ‘oh’ they sigh and so and so they start to think about it, they start to reflect about it, about their work, their incomes, their savings, their fight to survive in London, their battle to pay their bills, their broken dreams, broken hearts and burnt beards. Hmmm…
…And also they start to reflect about what happens and goes on around, around the wise and the clever of London City, the smart exploiters, the true evil genius of present shame time, present ugly time, present brainy time, hmm… They reflect regarding what you explain to them, regarding what you feed, what you give, what you teach and what you show to them, they reflect regarding ‘Modern Slavery,’ Modern Slavery my dear, modern slavery dear world of shame and dishonesty.
Yes, fair enough, at the end of the lesson, these pupils, these students, these workers and these slaves, of the now and the here, begin to move uneasily and anxiously, something disturbs them from within, in their inside, deep, deep, deep down in their own selves, something squeezes their breath, their respiration and their spirit, and it is the truthfulness of the fact that makes them feel the dryness of an entire desert in their throat and in their own beings my dear.
Then all of a sudden, you see that they, pupils, students, workers and slaves, speak and make questions in unison, speak in unanimity and are all of the same mind, same view and same attitude. You see, that it is a beautiful thing when you are a thinking subject, when you are a thinking being, when you are a reflective and refractive entity, when you have the ability and capability to reflect in the within and in the without. And thus you see that now, they, modern slaves, speak in the same tone, colour and timber of voice and in the same accent, in the same tongue, in the same slang, in the accent, tongue and slang of truthfulness and honesty. Thus at the end of the day, they ask full of curiosity and inquisitiveness, ‘are we really slaves mate? Is that true, that that you are telling us, for real? Is that true? Is that true? Is that true, true, true, true? Oh, no… don’t tell me that please.
At that moment in time a pause prevails for a while, but afterwards human wisdom and courage intervenes and ‘Yes’ replies the Teacher firmly and certain in his mind for what he teaches and what he wants to say about that old theme, slavery, ‘it really is and sorry to break your hearts though, but unfortunately we live in the Modern Slavery and people need to wake up, enough with sleeping philosophy, enough with drunkenness and enough with hating and treating with disregard the poor and the weak, the wretched and the powerless, we are all humans, are we?
We are all part of this planet, of this damned and cursed to death planet, aren’t we my dear?
We are all going to disappear one day, aren’t we my dear? We are all going to be gone forever one day, we are all going to die one day, and unfortunately it is true and meaningless also, aren’t we my dear people?
Yes we are, and this is the truthfulness of the spirit to say the truth as it is and say it face to face to the hypocrites, to the great hypocrites of our times, our hour and our period, to the never happy and never fed ones of our times, to these greedy and predatory beings of our time. And thank you for asking my dear, but I had to take out of my chest this pain of mine and explain it to you, pricey, charming, comely pupils, students, workers and slaves.’
Thus replies the Teacher and then leaves them in their state of mind, leaves them to reflect and think and think and reflect within their reflective and thinking being.
History tells us, that slavery was prevalent in more or less every ancient civilization, and society, including Sumer, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greeks, Assyria, the Hebrew kingdoms in Palestine, Ancient China, the Akkadian Empire, Assyria, Ancient India, the Roman Empire, the Islamic Caliphate, and the pre-Columbian civilizations of the Americas.
Thank you, thank you, thank you my dear.
Well, now we know that slavery has been loved and praised throughout human history from famous thinkers and philosophers themselves, from their very mouth, from their very mind, like Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, John Locke, and famous politicians of 19th century like James Henry Hammon, John C. Calhoun and Lerry E. Tise an independent historian with a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina, in the USA, also the Dutch-language newspaper De Zuid-Afrikaan was pro slavery and against its abolition and many other institutions, thinkers, writers and wealthy lovely people my dear had the same attitude, view and posture throughout the human shame history.
I know that you know, but in order to restore values you need to remember and remind sometimes the past.
So in the British Empire or in the empire which the sun never sets, that act for abolition of slavery came into force in August 1834, but it really never worked anyways.
Let’s be honest slavery just changed attitude, changed its philosophy and cast its net on a larger scale enfolding, embracing and engulfing the majority of people through the wage laborer’s ideology.
Well, I am an artist I love to listen and learn like Socrates did and I loved to open the book of the world like Rene Descartes said and did. But, I find myself in a big trouble, I find myself a real and true slave of modern time, of fascists of our time that suck the blood of the poor and the weak and suck it mercilessly, pitilessly and ruthlessly. I’m telling you my brethren, the fascists of our time, they are to be blamed.
Well, I make this low-paid jobs, sure, and I’m self-educated, sure, but I’m not the only one who does these low-paid jobs, sure, out there are the majority of the world and majority of people that live in the British Empire, or the UK, that make these low-paid jobs, sure.
Anyways, now let’s begin with maths and calculate things properly and righteously.
I work 48 hours per week with only one day off, only one day off and I get paid 6.50 per hour.
So, 48 hours times £6.50 equal £312, from this take off £52tax, (thing which sometimes comes higher, sometimes comes slightly lower,) then we see that remain £260, good. The story has not finished as yet, so now take off £110 my weekly food and £110 my weekly rent in zone four in London Town that is a mess in rental and living standards, then at the end of the week remain £40 in total my dear, forty pounds my dear, but still good, I’m earning something that is much more better than nothing, ain’t I?
But, oh yes, I forgot the fare of the aristocrat Mayor of London for the traveling ticket that is double the price of the city in which I previously lived, Los Angeles. And so the weekly oyster card zone 1-4, in London city or the genius exploiter’s town, costs no more and no less than £46.10. So it comes to pass that in my pocket remains absolutely nothing and I have to borrow seven pounds per week to keep up with my food on the table, my food on the table my dear.
Consequently I’m even worse off than a proper slave of the past because the slave of the past didn’t have to worry about the food on the table, travel card, and coffee and sugar, etc.. etc.. he had it included all in his daily work. Thank you.
And how about a woman, getting married, family etc… etc… etc… nah, nah, women know it, they are sexy and they know it, a mansion, a good car, and a good job, as standards to have her and create a family. The liberated women of 2015 are another theme another pain and another philosophy that needs to be explained in the future. Hmm, present time is beautiful, isn’t it? Well, by God it really is…!
So for now, take what I gave you, the great Modern Slavery starting off with my own self as a true good example and a true good serf of the feudal gentry of 2015.
And oh yes, I’d be surprised if the voice of wisdom in my mind would say differently from this; that the British Empire or the UK, is made of genius creative exploiters, and thanks so much for that. Thank you my dear, but slavery is not abolished as yet, no I don’t think so, no, unfortunately, so don’t try to fool us, the working class. Thanks.
