One Of The Effects Of Debt

Recommended Posts

FT article about today's strike action:-

The requirements on members to make regular mortgage repayments and repay credit card debts may provide another explanation for their apparent reluctance to undertake the kind of the prolonged industrial action that brought the Labour government to its knees in 1979.

There you go: get the workers hooked on debt and as this keeps them from getting out of control.

Its a balance though, it will keep them hooked and quiet while they have jobs, but if they lose thier job or if the debt outgrows thier income they will reach a 'nothing to lose' stage.

A smack head is your best friend when you have money/drugs to feed thier habbit, when you run out of money/drugs they will just take what they want from you (unless you repeatedly kick the f*ck out of them of course).

Its a balance, the govenment better make sure the debt beast stays on its leash or else it will devour them.

I wondered if this was why various govts. reduced student grants & introduced fees. Even when I was a student (in the late 90s) most of us had jobs at some point.

That meant it often wasn't possible to go on a demo or march, because 1) You couldn't get time off 2) You were catching up with study because of work 3) You were too apathetic.

Chomsky gave an example of sport and why Govts are willing to back them heavily. Its stops the populance thinking and that's what the Govt wants.

...and readily available booze from supermarkets and off-licences. I remember watching 'Boyz n the hood' based on gangs in LA - in the film it was remarked that a liquor store was on every street corner, placed to keep the masses down.

On a refreshing note it was nice to spend some time living in Vancouver, Canada. BC has some of the toughest rules re selling of booze. It was only available through state stores. It was quite nice to go into shops and supermarkets without having crates of booze placed by the door unlike in Sainsburys and Tescos!!

Yep sport and booze a great combination for keeping the public down and not to question their actions as they plod through life...
