we must be fucking mad do we really think they give a shit about us and our families? or are they really in it for them fucking selves remember 47 percent of 'em come from a privileged background so what do you reckon us or them? I mean. when will it start worrying us? what needs to happen before we think enough is enough and actually get off our arses and try to do something about it? well it can't be state-sponsored kidnap, torture and execution without trial because they're already fucking doing that and nobody so much as bats an ipad we're all sheep and we sell ourselves far too cheap tweet your tweet and then go back to sleep your compliance is a real treat so what do we do about it? where do we start? how do we mobilise entire generations that have been succoured into total submission and get them to send a message that enough is enough without actually expecting them to do anything? is there a way to harness inaction, and make it action? is there a way to achieve something, by doing nothing? some say that If voting actually changed anything they'd abolish it that whichever way you vote the governments always win you see, they get their mandate through elections so if this is how we give them their power this is also how we can take it away we simply stop taking part. well, what if the next time they want our vote we all stay at home? what if we refuse to endorse them until they radically change? what if we turn our backs and watch the telly instead? or read a book? or make love? or play a video game? and what if we encourage everybody else to do the same? what if they held a general election and nobody came? we're all sheep and we could at least start to bleat time to wake up from your lovely sleep non-compliance will have them beat

about

dark actors UK

dark actors are running the other way: speaking directly rather than singing in metaphors, striving for simplicity among flammery, using a limited analogue palette in a digital blank canvas of possibilities.
