NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor [condemn him,] but by lawful judgement of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land.  We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right.

=From the Magna Carta (aka the Great Charter of Liberties of England) of 1215

  1. When we leave this. The English Bill of Rights and Common Law, we are lost. It does not need renewing, it is there. Fought for time and time again, countless lives lost defending it.

    When and finally when SHTF. In a year, ten or twenty. People will look back at this post and many others like it. they will say “what a marvellous piece of history, where did it all go wrong”?
    We can tell them. It went on greed, ignorance and self indulgence. Suckled on the nipples of Rome the majority lost in electronic oblivion, it was squandered and sold. Lobotomised in a drug and drink sodden binge of usury and instant gratification, “The People” sold their souls to the highest bidder.

    Corporate and banker fed domestic oppression, military conquest at the expense of decency, morality and basic humanity. A secular world where weird and sick behaviour is the norm. To criticise is wrong, criminalised thoughts and pens. Political correctness the new god. Violence carried out by corporate whores in the name of ordinary people, Faiths ridiculed and demonised, people murdered by automated drone.

    Some of us have not left it. Some of us still hold it dear. Only a few though. When the next bloodbath is over, will we say yet again, “that is the last time”.
