Morning music

[conducted by Andrew Davis. I recall buying him a pint of beer and having a brief chat once, in 1995 or 1996, at the Colonnade Hotel, Little Venice https://www.colonnadehotel.co.uk/]

If only white European people would stop oppressing blacks, and let the blacks “rule themselves”…oh, no, wait…

Very true, but Starmer-Labour would/will be very similar.

Again, very true, but the main drivers of censorship —and against freedom of expression— in the UK are the fanatical Jew-Zionists.

As for “Tories“, we can already see that the Israel-lobby puppets in the Labour Shadow Cabinet would be, if anything, even worse.

Again, all true, except that the upcoming local elections will change little or nothing in terms of actual improvements to anything.

I should like to see a reduction of about 4/5ths in the world population, leaving 1/5th, mostly northern European. Not because of “hate” toward the non-Europeans but because, firstly, the natural world is under unprecedented strain and, secondly, only a European population in Europe (particularly) and northern Eurasia can form the basis for a necessary quantum leap in human evolution.

Obscure hit noticed

Well, a first (I think) for the blog today. No less than 8 hits (possibly from only one person, though) from Tadzhikistan (my preferred spelling, btw), one of the wildest corners of the old Soviet “empire” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tajikistan].

Those who know about such things tell me that the location of hits from overseas is unreliable, by reason of “proxy servers”, but I prefer just to believe that someone in Dushanbe or wherever, for whatever reason, has been reading my output.

I recall that, when I was on the committee of the Central Asia and Transcaucasia Law Association (CATLA) in the mid-1990s, someone had been reporting from Dushanbe (former Stalinabad, during the 1930s and 1940s) on the telephone, before gasping that she had to run “because a tank has just come around the corner“; there was a civil war going on at the time.

[Rudaki (formerly Lenin) Avenue, Dushanbe, Tadjikistan, the main thoroughfare]

The blog has had a few very obscure hits before, including one or two from Antarctica.

For me, the main danger of AI is that it will become so inconvenient for people to avoid its effects and control that most will become almost slaves to a mechanized, digitized society in which the individual (and free speech, and free thought) may be of little value.

To coin a phrase, “richer than all his tribe“…

Appalling. I see so many similar situations, all over the country, certainly all over what I think is the best part of England, meaning below a line stretching from the Bristol Channel to the Wash. (yes, I know that there are also some beautiful areas elsewhere, such as Herefordshire).
