Does Our Government Want Many of Us to Die?


If you want to bore yourself silly, read about “No Blame Culture’ in business. It is the most turgid rubbish I have read in a long time. But philosophy in business is about the most tragic and dreary thing one could possibly read… If you want to think about something astonishing look at what the Tao says about blame… things like ‘No fight, no blame’ and ‘if you blame someone else, there will be no end to the blame.’

We really do not need to blame. We just need the truth.

There’s a lot of blame around: after 12 years in power the Tories blame Labour for the economic crisis, and the fat hedge-fund manager blames ‘remainers’ for the fall of the pound, and the Russians blame the west for the sabotaging of their own pipelines. The Americans blame everybody for everything, because that is part of their obsessively litigious culture. 

My rational mind says there is no space and no place for blame, but my body, which is very cold right now says somebody out there should be blamed… and maybe made aware that so many of us are fearful of turning up the heat – as if we have no right to be warm, to be alive or to buy food and eat, even though we have been law abiding citizens and paid taxes all our lives.  

In the last two days, several people have suggested to me that this government want many of us to die… sooner rather than later. So maybe there is somebody out there to blame. Whether there is somebody to blame… rest assured… Liz Truss and her Government  would not know compassion or empathy if it came up and poked them in the eye with a pointed stick.
