The pains in my leg are not sparse -
They extend from my ankle to arse :
I can walk half a mile -
But not skip with a smile ...
I'm a joker - but this is no farce !


OK ... I admit it ... I am busking it today because I am in pain and in bed and in limbo and in ... well, just short of ideas ... and The People Who Are Left-Hand'd and Left-Politick'd and Left-Over'd and Left-Behind'd typically do not like being associated with the word " Sinister " even though I am using it in a perfectly neutral way to indicate The People Who Abide By The Golden Rule and who thus merely react naturally to what is being done unto them by doing it unto others e.g. some person or persons unknown steals their umbrellas and therefore in accordance with The Laws of The Earthly Realm - as interpreted and set down in the statutes and orders of The Democrats of Wales and The World in obedience to The Ruler of The Demoncratic Power which governs The Kingdom of The Underworld and thus contrives the appearance of nobody ever being able to mend the things of The Earthly Realm and which which is contending for this The Earthly Realm against The Ruler of The No'mo'cratic Power which governs The Republic of The Overworld and who unfortunately is simply unwilling to meddle in The Earthly Realm because that would sort of take all of the fun out of politics and religion and things like that because We The People of The Earthly Realm are some how meant to figure it all out for ourselves - you know, by looking for patterns in things and finding meaning in The Way in which The People in Wales and The World behave in response to such things ... whilst all the time they are being deliberately and actively deceived by The Demoncrats and sort of not helped at all by the No'mo'crats who yet urge We The People to be nice to - well, alllllll of the *********s - Hierarchs, Democrats, Aristocrats, Monarchs - and to simply try to politely persuade them : how the ****** ****** are we supposed to be able to stand in The Eye of This Storm raging all around ourselves and find a way out to a safe harbour ? Are we to just hold up " The Open Hand " and feel which way the winds around us are presently blowing in order to avoid being utterly shitwrecked by The Democrats in Wales ? Are we somehow supposed to be able to do this without even being possessed of the meagre shelter once provided for us by The Umbrella of Republicanism in Wales - stolen from us by The Democrats in The United Kingdom way back in 1790s ... I mean - look at The Republicans in Hong Kong : as soon as The United Kingdom had finally let them go they all rushed out immediately and together to try to get back The Umbrella of Republicanism ...

http://www.rc.umd.edu/praxis/thelwall/HTML/praxis.2011.solomonescu.html ... and here is our forgotten Republican in Wales under The Umbrella of Sedition ...



This so often seems to me to be just an impossible situation and I can hardly at all but help complaining about the thieving Democrats in Wales and The World and our lack of The Umbrella of Republicanism to at least provide some minimal shelter for The People in Wales and The World from The Reign of The Democrats in Wales and The World ... it is not just not fair that just here in The Eye of The Storm the unjust are reigning upon the just because the unjust have just unjustly stolen all of the umbrellas of the just unjustly ... this is so unjust - We The People must just demand The Umbrella of Republicanism in Wales ! ... We really do need The Umbrella of Republicanism in Wales and The World ... especially We The People in Wales if not Those The Other People in The Rest of The World - We The People in Wales have been living in hope of at least some kind of reign fall for centuries here ... so perhaps if We The People in Wales can just finally get The Umbrella of Republicanism in Wales back from The Democrats in Wales - or, if we must - just borrow somebody else's umbrella for a while ( perhaps We The People in Wales just must now invoke our Human Right to borrow The Umbrella of Republicanism of The People in Europe ? ) - then can we finally hope to have something which might stop The Democrats in Wales and Westminster from continuing to utterly soak us with their reign ?

Stupendously Feeble or Vaingloriously Tough as that might sound, it may not be such a mad idea for this small but famously see-sick bunch of The People in Wales called The Welsh to remember the way in which our ancestors in very small boats determined the direction from which the approaching storm was coming from. Naturally they tended to say their prayers first, and leaving nothing to chance given that their lives were at stake, they most probably prayed to a number of various saints and deities - Y Forwyn, Y For-Forwyn, Y Far-forwyn - and then then stood in the prow of the boat and held up - " Y Llaw Agored " - and steadily turned in circles whilst staring at the moon and the stars and the sun and the moon and the stars and the sun and ... well, to be honest for all I know they were also humming the theme tune from that film ' Titanic ' as well whilst they did this, but they most certainly were not allowing their mates to cuddle up close behind them. In these little constructions which they fabricated - which are so modestly Made in Wales - they were able to outrun those tremendous storms, drive past the floundering bigger ships Made in Ireland, successfully dodge the icebergs and upon arriving in the calmer waters then to be found on the western side of the Atlantic they found absolutely no where to land - so they dumped their ballast over-board and thus created a whole continent to anchor themselves to, which was then only much later discovered by Madoc, Cabot, Columbus, Vikings, Indians, Eskimoes etc ... it is a great pity however that The People called The Welsh will never have this our most clever of all historical national achievements ever recognised by those claiming to be The People called The Americans ... because unfortunately their understanding of such things has been entirely corrupted by their infatuation with The Democrats in America - indeed, to such a degree that even The Republicans in America are behaving like The Democrats in America, and then just to confuse matters even further they do keep swapping clothes and they have even experimented with swapping names ... so just avoid any confusion, let me stick to the possible facts of the case as probably known here amongst The Republicans in Wales ... perhaps ...

Oh dear ... I wonder if anybody really bothers to read through these sorts of a-mussimeant-s ... this all started out by chance upon hearing a comment by ... this guy ?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05vcsdc

" ... Tristan Gooley is a writer and expedition leader. His speciality is natural navigation - the art of finding your way using nature including the sun, moon, stars, weather, land, sea, plants and animals. His book, The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs, is published by Sceptre ... "

What caught my attention and led me to start messing around with the idea of " Facing The Wind " was that I questioned as to whether Tristan Gooley should not be facing into the wind when he said that when he stands with his back to the wind then the centre of the storm ( the low pressure centre ) is likely to be on his left i.e. I think that we are more likely to detect the direction of the wind by facing into it, in which case if we extend our arms sideways then our right hand will point inwards to the still centre of the cyclone, and our left hand will point outwards to the outer edge of the cyclone where the storm is taking place - where its revolutions are being most destructive. This seemed to me an excellent metaphor to invoke : a nicely natural phenomenon which demonstrates the sense of the ' Sinister ' versus ' Dexter ' choices to be made between " The Left Hand Path " of The Ultraisms or " The Right Hand Path " of The Altruisms - of merely reacting with the same Lies, Hatred, Enslavement and War which lead to The Death of Society - or resolving to resist what is being done to us in The Complete Ultraism of The United Kingdom by providing to others The Truth, Love, Freedom and Peace which lead to The Life of Society : by resolving to reject The Sinister Politics of Democracy and by choosing The Dextrous Politics of Republicanism espousing the original United Republicans' vision of the 1790s of The Complete Altruism of The United Republic of England, Scotland, Ireland and ... ah .... um ... er - Calais ?

( I do not know how you are all feeling about pieces like this : I am beginning to view myself as a bit of a political artiste ... passages like this where I am publicly rehearsing this kind of terminology increasingly seem to me to be positively metaphysical musings upon some higher plane ... but perhaps you are all now thinking of me as having become merely horribly pretentious ... vraiment ? )


TRISTAN GOOLEY'S WEBSITE - http://naturalnavigator.com/books-and-library/the-walkers-guide-to-outdoor-clues-and-signs

... YAY ... Tristan Gooley's website features an eight pointed star ... a Rural Republican ? ... in Republican symbolism this is The North Star ... or if you like the axis upon which The World turns : The ' Res Publica ' is the still centre and the further that a society is away from it the more dramatic the revolutions are which it is forced to perform if its political system is not properly centred and balanced ... or if you like - and more appropriately for this piece here - " The Pole Star " is " The Eye of The Storm " which sort of rages above us who are sort of down here below - " As Above So Below " - and that we can imagine ourselves to be caught up in " The Cosmic Drama " of " The Struggle Between Good and Evil " or " Between Heaven and Hell " ... or rather in other worlds we always find ourselves to be living in between these two extremes : as if we have been stranded upon a tidal sandbank - that our lives are lived out for the most part neither in a mythical Heaven nor in an imaginary Hell but in a very real Purgatory in which we are constantly beset by the multiple problems brought to us by what appear to be random tides and cross-currents which are running through our societies - excepting that Republicanism declares these to be entirely predictable ... certainly they are entirely debatable ... and this is the fun of it !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6tPFhtIeyU - ALAN WATTS - WHO OFTEN GAVE AMUSING TALKS ... " THE COSMIC DRAMA " ...



It is not that " The Pole Star " actually has eight sticky-out bits ... the point is that on star charts it is was immensely important star to clearly mark out for the use of navigators because it is the only star which ' stands still ' in the sky - as if placed there by God to help us ... as if it is our saviour at sea - when we are lost - when all of our hopes of finding our way seem to be gone - when we are otherwise thrown into confusion by the violence of the storm in which we are caught up in - there is the - gone ? - The Clouded Star ? - are we then to be entirely lost then - when the fog of jaw-jaw descends ? - NO : for centuries navigators without sight of the sun and moon were facing disaster when they also lost sight of " The Pole Star " - but then The Compass was invented and soon after improved by magnetising needles and then balancing them first over and then within The Compass Card ... and since The Compass Needle sought out The Pole Star the early navigators drew The Pole Star onto The Compass Card, drawing upon the disk beneath The Compass Needle the basic eight divisions of The Horizon before them : whichever symbol came first - " The Pole Star " or " The Compass Rose " - the metaphor which arose in the 19c for trying to decide a course of action which is both moral and ethical - when there is no known charted course and no heavenly sign before us - was " The Moral Compass." Because of these kinds of associations, in Britain and Ireland " The Northern Star " became a Republican symbol and was the name of the famous newspapers which promoted the causes of The United Irishmen in the 1790s and The Chartists in Britain in the 1840s.



Phillip Pettit, the author of what has become our key modern text - " Republicanism " - has also written a book referring to this metaphor -

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Just-Freedom-Compass-Complex-Norton/dp/0393063976

Just Freedom: A Moral Compass for a Complex World - Philip Pettit - Norton Global Ethics - 2014 - ISBN 9780393063974

" Freedom, in Philip Pettit's provocative analysis, "requires more than just being let alone." In Just Freedom, a succinct articulation of the republican philosophy for which he is renowned, Pettit builds a theory of universal freedom as nondomination. Seen through this lens, even societies that consider themselves free may find their political arrangements lacking. Do those arrangements protect people's liberties equally? Are they subject to the equally shared control of those they protect? Do they allow the different peoples of the world to live in equal freedom? With elegant, user-friendly tests of freedom--the eyeball test, the tough luck test, and the straight talk test--Pettit addresses these questions, laying out essential yardsticks for policymakers and concerned citizens alike. An invitation to join in a program that would better articulate and realize justice in our social, democratic, and international lives, Just Freedom offers readers an essential starting place for the world's thorniest problems."

" Just Freedom : A Moral Compass for a Complex World " by Philip Pettit - a review in the Times Higher Education Supplement by John Shand ( 26 JUNE 2014 )

" ... Freedom should not be a matter of luck or goodwill or involve having to answer to anyone; there should be no dominus or master. Non-allowance involves a whole range of uses of power from psychological pressure, explicitly voiced disapproval or defiance not being worth the price to force majeure or downright physical constraint. ... However, freedom as non-domination is a matter of degree and is not the only good. Pettit calls it a “gateway good”: a simplifying good through whose consideration we may judge how well other goods are being implemented, in particular, the goods of justice, democracy and sovereignty. The extent of the presence of freedom as non-domination can be shown by three tests: the “eyeball test”, the “tough luck test” and the “straight talking test”. Respectively, these describe being able to look someone in the eye honestly and without fear; the sense that when decisions go against one they are not unjust but the result of bad luck; and a state of respect as equals between different peoples. For the want of these, many people become habitually resigned and feel hopeless ... "

I ought to go to bed even if I am not able to finally put this to bed ... I assumed that " facing the wind " would prove to be some well known biblical passage or some other literary quotation

Acts 27:13-15 " ... But before very long there rushed down from the land a violent wind, called Euraquilo; and when the ship was caught in it and could not face the wind, we gave way to it and let ourselves be driven along. ... "

Ephesians 4:14 " ... As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming ... "

Hosea 12:1 " ... Ephraim feeds on wind, And pursues the east wind continually; He multiplies lies and violence ... "

Come to think of it : encounters with God are occasionally described as taking place in the centre of a whirlwind i.e. " The Eye of the Storm " = God = Res Publica ?

Job 38:1 " ... Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind ... "

2 Kings 2:1 " ... And it came about when the LORD was about to take up Elijah by a whirlwind to heaven ... "

2 Kings 2:11 " ... And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven ... "

Nahum 1:3 " ... The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, And the LORD will by no means leave the guilty unpunished ; In whirlwind and storm is His way, And clouds are the dust beneath His feet ... "

Jeremiah 23:19 " ... Behold, the storm of the LORD has gone forth in wrath, Even a whirling tempest; It will swirl down on the head of the wicked ..."

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO .... tttttttooooooooooeeeeeaaaaasssssyyyyyy .... you can see how easy it was for 19c preachers to get everybody worked up without really ever saying anything at all ... I wonder if Nicola Spurgeon is a descendent that most successful of all - Charles Spurgeon ?

http://www.spurgeongems.org/vols49-51/chs2918.pdf

from A SERMON GIVEN AT THE METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE, NEWINGTON, ON THURSDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 28, 1876.

CHARLES SPURGEON - " FACING THE WIND "

" ... First, then, Brothers and Sisters, our text contains A SUMMARY OF CHRISTIAN LIFE. It is “doing good.” This is all you have to do—you that have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus and renewed in the spirit of your minds. You have to spend your lives in doing good ! ... Doing good is attending to the duties that arise out of our relationships in life—attending carefully to them and seeing that in nothing we are eye-servers and men-pleasers—but in everything are seeking to serve God. I know it is difficult to make people feel that such simple and ordinary things as these are doing good. Sometimes stopping at home and mending the children’s clothes does not seem to a mother quite so much “doing good” as going to a Prayer Meeting. And yet it may be that the going to a Prayer Meeting would be doing ill if the other duty had to be neglected. It is still a sort of superstition among men that the cobbler’s lap stone and the carpenter’s adze are not sacred things and that you cannot serve God with them—you must get a Bible and break its back at a revival meeting, or give out a hymn and sing it lustily in order to serve God. ... Away with superstition ! Kill it by counting every place to be holy, every day to be holy and every action that you perform to be a part of the high priesthood to which the Lord Jesus Christ has called every soul that He has washed in His precious blood ! ... Now I am going to close by bringing up A FEW ARGUMENTS TO KEEP MY DEAR BRETHREN WITH THEIR FACES TO THE WIND. I want you that are going uphill for Christ and find the wind blowing very sharp, to set a hard face against a strong wind and to go right straight on all the same. If you have to fight your way to Heaven through every inch of your life, I would encourage you to keep on. May God’s Spirit give you strength to do so ! ... And first, you say, “Oh, but this service—keeping your garments always white—is hard work. Doing good needs so much effort. I am afraid I shall be weary.” ... But another says, “No, Sir, I could bear anything for Christ, but do you know I have been trying to do good to my neighbors, to the children of my class, and to the others—and I really think that the more I try to do good to people, the worse they are—doing good is followed by so little result. I have labored in vain and spent my strength for nothing and, you know, Sir, that hope deferred makes the heart sick. They seem to refuse and reject my message though I put it very kindly.” ... "

Wink I will leave that alone there - I have left in some of the heavy going stuff so as to be true to the source ... these 19c texts are as much an acquired taste as listening to rap or hip-hop or bebop - amusing for a few minutes only ... but recognisably pre-occupied with the same concerns we share ... and probably making the same sorts of mistakes that we do !

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square_rig - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windward_and_leeward

I think that it is clear that Spurgeon's imagery there is one of a determined stance in the face of adversity ... but then in the middle of the 19c a common sight would have been a sailing ship : square riggers " Facing The Wind " might equally well have been a metaphor for stubborn stupidity - think of a square rigger fully set and facing into the oncoming wind - it would have been driven backwards at least if it had not had its masts snapped off at their footings or even tear through its bulkheads ... it might even have sunk the ship. A square rigger would not be found " Facing The Wind " but tacking against it as best it could, more or less just to maintain its position ... I am running out of ideas besides this ... there are several novels but nothing to indicate what their titles refer to ... I did not really want to mention religion again but the Catholics were worrying about The Apocalypse and apparently they managed to get a lot of other worried about it too ...

http://www.mercurynews.com/business/ci_25392568/facing-windows-xp-apocalypse-here-are-some-options

... now wherever this quotation " Facing The Wind " originated I am finding it widely used for all sorts of things and I think that I must end with this - not cute ?

Watching a weather forecast this morning I pondered as to whether I have got the model of the cyclone the wrong way around ... so I am trying to figure it out again.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone

In meteorology, a cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth. This is usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. Most large-scale cyclonic circulations are centered on areas of low atmospheric pressure. ... [ OK - I HAD ALREADY FIGURED OUT THAT AUSTRALIAN REPUBLICANS WOULD DO IT DIFFERENTLY.] ... There are a number of structural characteristics common to all cyclones. A cyclone is a low-pressure area. A cyclone's center ( often known in a mature tropical cyclone as the eye,) is the area of lowest atmospheric pressure in the region. Near the center, the pressure gradient force ( from the pressure in the center of the cyclone compared to the pressure outside the cyclone ) and the force from the Coriolis effect must be in an approximate balance, or the cyclone would collapse on itself as a result of the difference in pressure. ... Because of the Coriolis effect, the wind flow around a large cyclone is counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. Cyclonic circulation is sometimes referred to as contra solem. In the Northern Hemisphere, the fastest winds relative to the surface of the Earth therefore occur on the eastern side of a northward-moving cyclone and on the northern side of a westward-moving one; the opposite occurs in the Southern Hemisphere. ( The wind flow around an anticyclone, on the other hand, is clockwise in the northern hemisphere, and counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere.)





http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anticyclone

An anticyclone ( that is, opposite to a cyclone ) is a weather phenomenon defined by the United States National Weather Service's glossary as "a large-scale circulation of winds around a central region of high atmospheric pressure, clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere". Effects of surface-based anticyclones include clearing skies as well as cooler, drier air. Fog can also form overnight within a region of higher pressure. ... Surface anticyclones form due to downward motion through the troposphere, the atmospheric layer where weather occurs. Preferred areas within a synoptic flow pattern in higher levels of the troposphere are beneath the western side of troughs. On weather maps, these areas show converging winds ( isotachs,) also known as confluence, or converging height lines near or above the level of non-divergence, which is near the 500 hPa pressure surface about midway up the troposphere. Because they weaken with height, these high-pressure systems are cold. ... In the absence of rotation, the wind tends to blow from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. The stronger the pressure difference ( pressure gradient ) between a high-pressure system and a low-pressure system, the stronger the wind. The coriolis force caused by Earth's rotation gives winds within high-pressure systems their clockwise circulation in the northern hemisphere (as the wind moves outward and is deflected right from the center of high pressure) and anticlockwise circulation in the southern hemisphere ( as the wind moves outward and is deflected left from the center of high pressure.) Friction with land slows down the wind flowing out of high-pressure systems and causes wind to flow more outward ( more ageostrophically ) from the center.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_(cyclone)

The eye is a region of mostly calm weather at the center of strong tropical cyclones. The eye of a storm is a roughly circular area, typically 30–65 km ( 20–40 miles ) in diameter. It is surrounded by the eyewall, a ring of towering thunderstorms where the most severe weather occurs. The cyclone's lowest barometric pressure occurs in the eye and can be as much as 15 percent lower than the pressure outside the storm. ... In strong tropical cyclones, the eye is characterized by light winds and clear skies, surrounded on all sides by a towering, symmetric eyewall. In weaker tropical cyclones, the eye is less well defined and can be covered by the central dense overcast, an area of high, thick clouds that show up brightly on satellite imagery. Weaker or disorganized storms may also feature an eyewall that does not completely encircle the eye or have an eye that features heavy rain. In all storms, however, the eye is the location of the storm's minimum barometric pressure - the area where the atmospheric pressure at sea level is the lowest. ... Though the eye is by far the calmest part of the storm, with no wind at the center and typically clear skies, over the ocean it is possibly the most hazardous area. In the eyewall, wind-driven waves all travel in the same direction. In the center of the eye, however, the waves converge from all directions, creating erratic crests that can build on each other to become rogue waves. The maximum height of hurricane waves is unknown, but measurements during Hurricane Ivan when it was a Category 4 hurricane estimated that waves near the eyewall exceeded 40 m ( 130 ft ) from peak to trough.

03.40 AM - YES - I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPOS AND FRACTURED SENTENCES IN THE FOLLOWING BUT I AM KNACKERED.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I AM SURE THAT YOU ARE AWARE OF THE IDEA OF " THE EYE OF THE STORM " BEING THE PLACE OF CALM AND SAFETY - AND THAT YOU ALREADY UNDERSTAND THAT REPUBLICANISM IS THE POLITICAL THEORY BASED UPON THE KEY IDEA OF " THE RULE OF LAW " WHICH IS TYPICALLY PORTRAYED IN THE THEORIES OF " DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANISM " AND " REPUBLICAN DEMOCRACY " TO MEAN ADVOCATING PITCHING ONE COMMUNITY OF INTEREST AGAINST ANOTHER AND THUS USING THE POLITICAL EXTREMISTS TO CANCEL EACH OTHER'S BEHAVIOUR OUT ... BUT CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT REPUBLICANISM IS NOT SIMPLY SOME BALANCING ACT LIKE THE SEE-SAW OF DEMOCRACY [ WHERE THE STORMS OF EXTREMISM MERELY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE DIRECTION ONCE EVERY FIVE YEARS ] BUT A MATTER OF TRYING TO LIMIT THE DEGREES OF EXTREMISM WITH THE AIM OF FINALLY ENDING THEM ALTOGETHER : I.E. BY GETTING RID OF DEMOCRACY ENTIRELY AND REPLACING IT WITH A CONSTITUTIONALLY ARMOUR-PLATED POLITICAL SYSTEM WHICH IS FOUNDED SOLELY UPON FACTS AND ARGUMENTS. THE AIM OF REPUBLICANISM IS THAT THE POLITY CAN NOT BE UNBALANCED BY THE CONTENTIONS OF FACTIONAL COMMUNITIES NOR CAN THE STATE ITSELF BE CAPTURED BY ANY ONE OF THESE FACTIONAL COMMUNITIES AND RECREATED BY THEM IN THE PRETENCE THAT THEIR OWN INTERESTS ARE TO BE EQUATED WITH THE PUBLIC INTEREST.

IN THE DEVOLUTIONARY PROCESS THE LABOUR AND COOPERATIVE PARTY HAVE BEEN DOING EXACTLY THIS IN WALES WITH THE LICENCE WHICH THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED " THE UNITED KINGDOM " HAS ALLOWED TO THEM AND IT WILL ALSO ALLOW THE SAME TO PLAID CYMRU, THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS AND THE CONSERVATIVE AND UNIONIST PARTY IF THEY EVER GET ELECTED TO BE THE GOVERNMENT OF WALES IN THIS NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED THE UNITED KINGDOM. THESE AND OTHERS LIKE THE UNITED KINGDOM INDEPENDENCE PARTY ARE THOSE WHOM I REFER TO AS " THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES " AND WHICH I REGARD AS THE SUBVERTERS OF THE RES PUBLICA IN WALES AND THUS " THE ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE." COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST SUCH AS THESE WHICH ARE OPERATING " BEYOND THE BOUNDS " OF PROPER POLITICAL DISCOURSE REPRESENT THE SECOND STAGE OF ULTRAISM WHICH PROCEEDS THROUGH THE LIES OF HIERARCHY, THE HATREDS OF DEMOCRACY, THE ENSLAVEMENTS OF ARISTOCRACY AND THE WARS OF MONARCHY TOWARDS THE DEATH OF SOCIETY : THESE ULTRAIST NON-POLITICAL DEMOCRATIC PARTIES ARE ON " THE LEFT HAND PATH " BY WHICH THEY BRING THEIR STORMS OF EXTREMISM INTO THE EYE OF OUR SOCIETY AND THUS BLIND IT TO JUSTICE.

IF REPUBLICANS IN WALES ARE TO RESIST THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES WE CAN MUST NOT REACT TO THEIR CORRUPT BEHAVIOUR BY COPYING IT IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE PEOPLE IN WALES DO. IN MY DEVELOPING CONCEPTION OF THINGS DEMOCRACY IS NOT A POLITICAL SYSTEM AT ALL BUT A CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE PEOPLE IN WALES WHICH HAS BEEN DISGUISED AS AND PRETENDED TO BE A POLITICAL SYSTEM. THE PEOPLE IN WALES HAVE BEEN PERSUADED TO BELIEVE THAT THE CASTING OF VOTES IS SOMEHOW THE SAME AS THEIR PARTICIPATION IN POLITICS, AND THEY THINK THAT THEIR OWN PARTICIPATION IN POLITICS IS LIMITED TO MERELY A MATTER OF A FEW MINUTES IN THEIR ENTIRE LIFETIME, LEFT ALONE IN A CUBICLE WITH A HANDFUL OF BALLOT PAPERS AND VERY FEW CHOICES WHICH VERY FEW UNDERSTAND - AND EVEN FEWER CONCEIVE OTHERWISE THAN THAT THOSE WHOM THEY ELECT IN THIS MANNER ARE DOING ALL OF " THE POLITICS " AS THEIR " ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES." NOW ON PAPER, IN THE ARGUMENTS WHICH DEMOCRATS MAKE TO OTHERS TO CONCEDE POLITICAL AUTHORITY TO THEM THESE PRACTICES SEEM REASONABLE - BUT REALLY THE PRACTICES OF THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES ARE NOT : POLITICS IS THE COLLECTIVE PUBLIC BUSINESS OF MAKING DECISIONS NOT THE INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE BUSINESS OF MAKING CAREERS.

REPUBLICANISM HAS BEEN EXPLAINED IN VARIOUS WAYS OVER THE CENTURIES BUT THESE MOSTLY CONSIST OF SOME OF THE MOST OBVIOUS AND COMMON SENSE OBSERVATIONS TO BE MADE UPON LIFE. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR THOSE ELECTED AS REPRESENTATIVES TO BE SUFFICIENTLY KNOWLEDGEABLE OF ALL OF THE MATTERS WHICH THEY ARE TO LEGISLATE UPON TO RELY UPON THEIR OWN JUDGEMENT - THEIR ROLE IS TO SEEK OUT THOSE WHO ARE QUALIFIED TO ADVISE THEM, BUT THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES NOT ONLY DO NOT DO THIS THEY DO NOT EVEN UNDERTAKE THE VERY POOR SUBSTITUTE FOR A QUALIFIED OPINION WHICH IS THE OPINION OF THE PEOPLE ... BUT ... THEY ARE ALWAYS CAREFUL TO CULTIVATE THE OPINION OF THE PEOPLE AS TO THEIR OWN ABILITY TO EXERCISE JUDGEMENT IN MAKING DECISIONS - BECAUSE THERE ARE STRONG INCENTIVES FOR THEM IN BEING ELECTED. IN OTHER WORDS, NO DEMOCRAT WILL ADMIT TO ERROR AND THEY WILL COVER UP NOT MERELY FOR THE ERRORS MADE BY OTHERS IN THEIR OWN PARTY BUT ALSO FOR CRIMES COMMITTED BY THE DEMOCRATS IN OTHER PARTIES LEST THE PEOPLE IN WALES START DEMANDING THE KINDS OF POLITICAL REFORMS WHICH HAVE BEEN ADVOCATED BY THE REPUBLICANS IN WALES FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS I.E. THE END OF THE UNITED KINGDOM AS A POLITICAL SYSTEM - NOT MERELY BREAKING OFF A BIT OF THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED THE UNITED KINGDOM AS IS ADVOCATED BY THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONALISTS IN WALES WHO MERELY WANT TO PERMANENTLY POSSESS THE LICENCE TO PURSUE THEIR OWN ULTRAISMS.

WHAT REPUBLICANS IN WALES DEMAND IS A PROPER POLITICAL SYSTEM BASED UPON ALTRUISM - " THE CONSIDERATION OF OTHERS " - WHICH IS THE CORRECT AND PROPER OBJECT OF " THE RULE OF LAW " AS OPPOSED TO THE DEMOCRATS' ASSERTION THAT HOWEVER INCOMPETENT AND UNJUST THE LAWS ARE THAT THEY MAKE WE MUST SUBMIT TO THEIR AUTHORITY BECAUSE THEY HAVE CONTROL OF THE STATE : INFORMATION IN THE FORM OF FACTS AND ARGUMENTS IS THE SOLE SOURCE OF AUTHORITY IN ANY DECISION MAKING PROCESS AND THE INFORMATION IS INSEPARABLE FROM THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE IN WALES AND THUS CAN NOT BE TRANSFERRED TO THE INSTITUTIONS OF THE STATE. THE ONLY BASIS FOR THE AUTHORITY OF ANY LEGISLATION IS IN THIS INFORMATION AND IF THE LAWS BEING MADE BY THE STATE ARE NOT IN CONFORMITY WITH IT AND THUS DISTURB THE PEACE OF THE PEOPLE IN WALES THEN IT IS THE LAWS AND THOSE WHO CREATED THEM WHICH ARE AT FAULT NOT THE PEOPLE IN WALES WHO REFUSE TO COMPLY WITH THEIR IRRATIONAL AND UNREASONABLE LAWS.

THAT BEING SAID, COVERT LAW-BREAKING IN A CASUAL MANNER DOES NOT QUALIFY IN REPUBLICANISM AS POLITICAL ACTION BECAUSE IT IS NOT ONLY NOT PUBLICLY DIRECTED AT BRINGING AN END TO A " LAW " WHICH CAUSES INJUSTICE BUT ALSO WILL TEND TO BRING AN END TO ALL LAWS BY LICENCING CONTEMPT FOR THE RULE OF LAW ITSELF. REPUBLICANISM REQUIRES OVERT LAW-BREAKING IN A PURPOSEFUL MANNER IN ORDER TO SECURE BEING ARRESTED AND THUS PUBLICISE THE INJUSTICE OPPOSED BY ENDING UP IN A COURT ROOM MAKING THE NECESSARY POLITICAL ARGUMENTS AND ALSO HOPEFULLY THE CORRECT LEGAL ARGUMENTS NECESSARY TO WIN THE CASE. THIS UPHOLDS " THE RULE OF LAW " BUT IT IS WIDELY ALLEGED THAT IT IN ADVOCATING THIS REPUBLICANISM LICENCES CRIMINALITY - WIDELY ALLEGED BY THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES AND THE WORLD WHO ACTUALLY LICENCE THEIR OWN CRIMINALITY WITH " LAWS " WHICH PLACE THEMSELVES BEYOND THE RULE OF LAW I.E. LEGISLATION WHICH REPUBLICANISM DEFINES AS UNJUST AND THEREFORE REFUSES TO CONSIDER THEM TO BE LAWS AT ALL BECAUSE THEY BREAK THE PEACE OF SOCIETY IN NOT BEING UNIVERSALLY APPLICABLE.

IN THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED THE UNITED KINGDOM THERE ARE MULTIPLE EXAMPLES OF SUCH CONTRADICTORY STANDARDS OF JUSTICE PRESENT AND SO THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES' CLAIMS TO UPHOLD THE RULE OF LAW ARE DEMONSTRABLY FALSE - AS ARE THEIR CLAIMS THAT THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED THE UNITED KINGDOM IS A DEMOCRACY : WALES FUNDAMENTALLY LACKS BOTH THE CONVENTIONAL POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS DEEMED NECESSARY TO QUALIFY IT AS A DEMOCRACY AND BESIDES THESE CONSTITUTIONAL DEFECTS OF THE WELSH STATE OUR SOCIETY LACKS THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC BASIS OF A DEMOCRACY. THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED THE UNITED KINGDOM HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY MODIFIED OVER THE CENTURIES TO CONCEAL ITS TRUE NATURE CONSTITUTIONALLY BUT IT HAS THE UNMISTAKEABLE SOCIO-ECONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF AN ARISTOCRATIC STASIS IN WHICH ALL OF THE ULTRAISMS HAVE BEEN ORCHESTRATED AND BROUGHT TO BEAR UPON THE PEOPLE OF WALES AND THE WORLD. I.E. " THE UNITED KINGDOM " IS REALLY " THE UNITED ULTRAISMS " OF " THE SINISTER POLITICS " OF " THE LEFT HAND PATH " - OF " LIES, HATRED, ENSLAVEMENT, WAR AND DEATH " AND IS THEREFORE DEEPLY OPPOSED TO " THE RULE OF LAW " AND IS CONSEQUENTLY THEREFORE VERY DEEPLY HOSTILE TO " THE REPUBLICANS IN WALES AND THE WORLD."

IN REPUBLICANISM LAWS ARE CREATED FOR THE PURPOSE OF ADVISING THE PEOPLE IN WALES AND THE WORLD HOW TO RELATE TO EACH OTHER SUCCESSFULLY AND SO THUS ENJOY A PEACEFUL LIFE TOGETHER SO ANYTHING CONTRARY TO THIS IS NOT IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR POLITICAL OBJECTIVE OF " THE RULE OF LAW " AND WE MUST OPPOSE ANY LEGISLATION WHICH RESULTS IN A BREACH OF THE PEACE AND EXPOSE THE LACK OF POLITICAL AUTHORITY IT HAS - FIRST BY PRESENTING FACTS AND ARGUMENTS AND THEN BY DEFYING ANY INJUSTICES IMPOSED CITING THE FALSE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE. THE STATE IS NOT A PERSON BUT MERELY A MECHANISM AND AS SUCH IT CAN NEITHER POSSESS AUTHORITY NOR BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE, BUT ULTRAISTS WHO SECURE CONTROL OVER THE STATE PRETEND IT TO BE A PERSON IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THEMSELVES WITH THE BASIS FOR CLAIMS TO EXERCISE A FALSE AUTHORITY WHICH IS NOT BASED UPON ANY FACTS AND ARGUMENTS AND WHICH PLACES THEM BEYOND ANY ACCOUNTABILITY - YET THEY NOT ONLY LAY CLAIM TO BE UPHOLDERS OF " THE RULE OF LAW " BUT MOST ESPECIALLY SO WHEN THEY ARE USING LEGISLATION TO PERPETRATE INJUSTICES UPON THE PEOPLE OF WALES AND THE WORLD.

THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS OF ALL INJUSTICES IS THE CLAIM THAT THE PEOPLE OF WALES AND THE WORLD HAVE VOTED TO ENDORSE THE DEMOCRATS OF WALES AND THE WORLD BY HAVING TRANSFERRED TO THEM THEIR POLITICAL AUTHORITY THROUGH THE MECHANISM OF " THE NATION STATE " - NATIONS ARE MERELY NOTIONS LIKE GOD, SOVEREIGNTY AND FLYING PIGS : THESE ARE ALL FIGMENTS OF THE HUMAN IMAGINATION AS IS " THE RULE OF LAW " - BUT THIS AS THE BASIS OF REPUBLICANISM IS FOUNDED UPON THE REALITIES BEING EXPERIENCED BY THE PEOPLE IN WALES AND THE WORLD. " THE RULE OF LAW " IS OUR COLLECTIVELY AGREED ACCOUNT OF HOW TO CONDUCT SUCCESSFUL HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS AND SO IT ALWAYS SUBJECT TO FURTHER REVISION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FACTS AND ARGUMENTS THAT ARE BEING PUT FORWARD BY INDIVIDUALS AS A RESULT OF THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR EXPERIENCES OF THEIR DEVELOPING RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN SOCIETY. THIS LOSS OF USEFUL INFORMATION IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY REPUBLICANS ADVOCATE BILLS OF HUMAN RIGHTS TO PROTECT MINORITIES AND OBJECT TO THE MAJORITY DECISION MAKING PROCESSES USED BY DEMOCRATS BECAUSE THEIR LAWS THUS LACK POLITICAL AUTHORITY AND PERPETRATE INJUSTICES.

THE REPUBLICANS IN WALES MUST STAND UPON THE FACTS AND WIELD OUR ARGUMENTS LIKE LEVERS : WE DO NOT WANT VOTES, PARTIES OR DEMOCRATS.

THAT MAY SOUND SHOCKINGLY RADICAL - SUBVERSIVE EVEN - BUT ONCE YOU HAVE COME TO UNDERSTAND THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE REPUBLICANS IN WALES YOU WILL COME TO SEE THAT IT IS MERELY A DESCRIPTION OF THE REALITY OF POLITICS IN WALES AND THE WORLD. IN FACT IT IS SHOCKINGLY RADICALLY OBVIOUS THAT THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES AND THE WORLD ARE DELIBERATELY DECEIVING THE PEOPLE IN WALES AND THE WORLD. ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT POLITICAL DISCOURSE CONSISTS SOLELY OF FACTS AND ARGUMENTS THEN THOSE CLAIMING POLITICAL AUTHORITY UPON THE BASIS OF HAVING RECEIVED VOTES ARE EXPOSED AS BEING IMPOSTERS TO POLITICAL AUTHORITY. POLITICAL AUTHORITY CAN NEVER BE PARTED FROM THE PEOPLE IN WALES AND THE WORLD, BUT IT DOES NOT EXIST IN THEM COLLECTIVELY : ONLY INDIVIDUALS CAN POSSESS PARTICULAR FACTS AND ARGUMENTS AND IF THERE IS ROLE FOR REPRESENTATIVES IS TO SEEK THESE INDIVIDUALS OUT IN ORDER TO REPRESENT THEM IN THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS - BUT THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES DO NOT DO THIS !

WHAT WE EXPERIENCE AS REPUBLICANS IN WALES IS THAT WHILST WE ARE THE PEOPLE COLLECTING THE FACTS AND MAKING THE ARGUMENTS ON BEHALF OF ALL SORTS ORGANISATIONS FOUNDED UPON THE CONSENTING RELATIONSHIPS WHICH ARE THE TRUE BASIS OF SOCIETY WE ARE AT BEST IGNORED OR WORSE MISQUOTED AND NOT CREDITED FOR OUR WORK OR - AND ABSOLUTELY THE WORST - OUR WORK IS ABUSED FOR THEIR NEFARIOUS PURPOSES BY THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES WHOSE RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE PEOPLE IN WALES ARE COERCIVE AND WHO HAVE DE FACTO THEREFORE PLACED THEMSELVES OUTSIDE OF THE SOCIETY WHICH THEY CLAIM TO GOVERN BUT IN FACT MERELY STRIVE TO EFFECT THEIR WILL UPON BY THE DECEPTION, INTIMIDATION AND HARASSMENT OF THE PEOPLE IN WALES. USUALLY THE PEOPLE IN WALES ARE SIMPLY BELIEVE IT TO BE THE NATURE OF POLITICS TO BE OFFENDED BY SUCH THINGS AS THE SUPPOSED CONSULTATIONS IN WHICH THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES PRESENT TO US THE DECISIONS WHICH THEY HAVE MADE AND THEN EITHER REFUSE TO COMMENT WHEN WE PRESENT OUR FACTS AND ARGUMENTS TO THEM OR DENOUNCE US FOR BEING - " POLITICAL ! " - BUT THIS IS NOT POLITICS AT ALL BUT THE NON-POLITICS OF THE NON-POLITICAL SYSTEM CALLED " THE UNITED KINGDOM."

WHAT THIS MEANS IN PRACTICE IS THAT WHEREVER YOU FIND THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES AND THE WORLD - EVERYWHERE : THE UNITED NATIONS, EUROPE, WESTMINSTER, Y SENEDD AND ITS COUNTY COUNCILS ETC - THERE IS VERY LITTLE POLITICS GOING ON AND THEY POSSESS VERY LITTLE IN THE WAY OF ANY REAL POLITICAL AUTHORITY. I REGARD WELSH POLITICAL SOCIETY ( WPS ! ) IS TO ONLY BE PRESENT WHEREVER THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES ARE ABSENT BECAUSE BY THEIR VERY NATURE POLITICAL PARTIES ARE ULTRAIST AND AS SUCH THEY DELIBERATELY WILL NOT LISTEN TO FACTS AND ARGUMENTS BECAUSE THAT IS THE WAY IN WHICH THEY BEHAVE. DEMOCRATS ARE CLEARLY DRIVEN BY NEUROSIS AND IN THEIR NON-POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS TO BE ELECTED THEY BEHAVE TO THE PEOPLE IN WALES IN THE SAME WAY THAT THEY BEHAVE TOWARDS EACH OTHER : THEY BOTH BRIBE AND THREATEN THE ELECTORATE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN THEIR VOTES.

THIS IS PROBABLY WHY SO MANY PEOPLE IMAGINE THEMSELVES TO BE DISAFFECTED TOWARDS POLITICS AND POLITICIANS, HAVING BEEN DECEIVED BY THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES INTO BELIEVING THAT DEMOCRACY IS NOT ONLY A POLITICAL SYSTEM BUT THE ONLY VIABLE POLITICAL SYSTEM. WELL HERE IS THE NEWS FROM THE REPUBLICANS IN WALES : DEMOCRACY IS NOT A POLITICAL SYSTEM AT ALL BECAUSE IT CONTAINS NEITHER FACTS NOR ARGUMENTS AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A VIABLE POLITICAL SYSTEM WITHOUT THESE. THERE IS ONLY ONE POLITICAL SYSTEM AND IT IS VIABLE BECAUSE IT IS BASED UPON FACTS AND ARGUMENTS - AND THEREFORE IT HAS NO NEED OF VOTING, ELECTIONS, PARTIES OR EVEN A STATE BECAUSE IT IS THE PEOPLE IN WALES THEMSELVES WHO IN PURSUING OUR OWN LIVES THROUGH OUR OWN CONSENTING RELATIONSHIPS GIVE LIFE TO OUR OWN SOCIETY AND SO GIVE LIFE TO - " THE REPUBLIC IN WALES."

SO ... THERE IS ANOTHER ATTEMPT BY ME TO LAY OUT FOR YOU MY VERY JOLLY, VERY SPIRITUALISED VISION OF A REPUBLICANISM IN WALES ... STRICTLY SPEAKING A " WHITE " VERSION OF THE REPUBLICANISM IN WALES, BECAUSE " WHITE " POLITICS REFERS TO THE LATE 17C AND EARLY 18C " PURE " REPUBLICANISM WHICH USED METAPHORS SUCH AS NEWTON'S PRISM IN WHICH " WHITE " WAS REVEALED TO CONSIST OF ALL OF THE OTHER COLOURS TO BE FOUND IN THE ENLIGHTENMENT, WHEREAS THE COLOUR " BLACK " REPRESENTED THE DARKNESS THAT THE ENLIGHTENMENT WAS SUPPOSED TO DISPEL ... I.E. SEMI-MEDIEVAL NON-POLITICAL ULTRAISTIC REGIMES SUCH AS THE UNITED KINGDOM ... SO A " WHITE " VIEW OF ANY POLITICAL SYSTEM FOUNDED UPON ANY SINGLE IDEOLOGY IS MUCH THE SAME AS IT HAS OF ANY RAINBOW CONSISTING OF ANY SINGLE COLOUR : IT IS STUPID, UNNATURAL AND THEREFORE BOUND TO FAIL BECAUSE IT DISREGARDS THE FACTS OF " THE NOMOS " I.E. " THE COSMIC LAW " WHICH REPUBLICANISM ARGUES THAT " THE RULE OF LAW " SHOULD BE FOUNDED UPON ... WHICH IN THE 15C AND 16C VERSIONS OF REPUBLICANISM WAS CONCEIVED OF AS " THE DIVINE LAW " OF REVALATORY RELIGION AND SO UNLEASHED RELIGIOUS WARFARE ... AND IN 19C AND 20C VERSIONS OF MODERNIST REPUBLICANISM WAS DISMISSED IN FAVOUR OF THE REVALATIONS OF MODERN REVALATIONS LIKE MARXISM ... BUT THE RADICAL 21C POST-MODERNIST NON-THEIST VERSIONS OF IT NOW BEING COOKED UP ARE SO MUCH BETTER ... NO BLOOD HAS YET BEEN SPILLED IN THE NAME OF SEMIOTIC ANALYSIS AS FAR AS I KNOW, BUT OF COURSE REVISIONIST DE-CONSTRUCTIVISM CAN SOUND JUST A BIT THREATENING ...

... " THE LEFT HAND PATH " IS NOT CONSIDERED BY CONTEMPORARY REPUBLICANS TO BE A VIOLATION OF " THE NOMOS " AS THE 16C RENAISSANCE REPUBLICANS CONSIDERED " SINISTER POLITICS " TO BE, IT IS DEEMED MERELY TO BE UNDERSTANDABLE AS A NATURAL REACTION AND NOT " EVIL " AS SUCH ALTHOUGH IT IS UNDESIRABLE. AFTER ALL THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES DO LIE, HATE, ENSLAVE, WAR AGAINST AND MAY ULTIMATELY KILL THE PEOPLE IN WALES - AND IN RETURN THE PEOPLE IN WALES LIE, HATE, ENSLAVE, WAR AGAINST AND MAY ULTIMATELY KILL THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES ... AND IT HAS BEEN UTTERLY TEDIOUS TO CONTINUOUSLY WITNESS THIS OVER MORE THAN THIRTY YEARS AND LOTS OF SENSIBLE PEOPLE HAVE SIMPLY LEFT THIS DIS-UNITED KINGDOM AS A CONSEQUENCE. BUT WHEREAS THUS THE ULTRAISM OF DEMOCRACY MAY LEAD TO THE FUTURE DEATH OF OUR SOCIETY - THE ALTRUISM OF REPUBLICANISM WILL LEAD TO THE FUTURE LIFE OF OUR SOCIETY, AND I DO THINK THAT THERE IS AS YET A FUTURE FOR OUR SOCIETY IN THE " DEXTROUS POLITICS " OF " THE RIGHT HAND PATH " OF REPUBLICANISM IF WE CAN FIND A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF THE PEOPLE IN WALES WILLING TO CHOOSE TO WALK IT.

NOW I KNOW THAT THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES WILL BE READING THIS AND SO THEY WILL SOON BE TALKING ABOUT IT AND REHEARSING HOW TO MIMIC IT : SO i NOW THINK THAT THERE NOW HAS TO BE A VERY FIRM AND HARD LINE DRAWN BY THE PEOPLE IN WALES BETWEEN THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES AS ULTRAISTS AND THE REPUBLICANS IN WALES AS ALTRUISTS. THERE CAN BE NO MORE OF THOSE COMPROMISES HERE AS WIDELY ACCEPTED ELSEWHERE SUCH AS AMERICAN " DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANS " OR FRENCH " REPUBLICAN DEMOCRATS " BECAUSE THE DEVOLUTION PROCESS HAS LEFT WALES WITH THE ABSOLUTELY THE WORST POLITICAL CONSTITUTION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND ITS DEPENDENT TERRITORIES - AND WE NEED NOT MINCE OUR WORDS HERE : THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES DID NOT BUNGLE THIS - THEY DESIGNED OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM TO BE WITHOUT THE INCONVENIENCE OF THE NORMAL INSTITUTIONS OF GOVERNMENT IN ORDER TO RULE THE PEOPLE IN WALES IN WHATEVER WAY THEY PLEASE, WILLFULLY WITHOUT ANY RESTRAINT. WHILST WE MUST CONTINUE AS WE HAVE DONE BEFORE WE MUST NOT ONLY CONFRONT THE DEMOCRATS IN WALES WITH THOSE INCONVENIENT FACTS AND ARGUMENTS WHICH THEY DO NOT LIKE BUT WE MUST ALSO SEEK WAYS TO POSITIVELY DENY THEIR CLAIMS TO ANY SORT OF POLITICAL AUTHORITY BASED UPON THE PRACTICES OF DEMOCRATS E.G. BY REFUSING TO REGISTER TO VOTE, SINCE THEY ARE NOW HAVING TO DEPEND UPON THE ELECTORAL REGISTERS NOT OUR VOTES AS THE BASIS OF THEIR CLAIM TO A DEMOCRATIC MANDATE.

" PURE REPUBLICANISM " IS NECESSARY TO RESIST THE BREAKDOWN OF " THE RULE OF LAW " WHICH IS THE THREAT OF " PURE DEMOCRACY."

BUT IN ORDER TO AVOID THE PROBLEMS WHICH THIS NECESSITY OF ADOPTING A " PURE REPUBLICAN " STANCE AGAINST THE THREAT OF " PURE DEMOCRACY " IN WALES MAY LEAD TO - SINCE WE ARE VULNERABLE TO BEING INFILTRATED AND MISREPRESENTED BY SOME OF THE OTHER VARIETIES OF ULTRAISTS, WE ABSOLUTELY NEED TO BE ABLE TO ARTICULATE " THE RIGHT HAND PATH " OF " DEXTROUS POLITICS " AND TO BROADCAST IT LOUDLY AND SIMPLY SO IT IS WIDELY UNDERSTOOD - WHICH IS WHY I DO KEEP ON GOING ON ABOUT IT AND REITERATING IT - TRUTH, BECAUSE WITHOUT IT POLITICAL DISCOURSE IS HOPELESS - LOVE, BECAUSE WITHOUT IT SOCIETY IS NOT ENABLED - FREEDOM, BECAUSE WITHOUT IT THERE IS NOTHING WOTHWHILE - PEACE, BECAUSE WITHOUT IT NOTHING IS SAFE - LIFE, BECAUSE WITHOUT IT NOTHING IS POSSIBLE.

[ THIS WAS PRETTY ROUGH EARLIER AND I WAS STRUGGLING AND I FEEL THAT I HAVE SURELY FETTLED IT ENOUGH BY NOW : I THINK THAT THIS WAS REALLY A REFLECTION UPON " THE REPUBLICAN AESTHETIC." ]

[ In the news today was a good example of The Democrats in Wales' disregard for facts and arguments - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-33025872 ]

To return to lower case ( the above started as a final note to end the thread - ha ! - and I know that must not be easy on the eye to read ) and to The Eye of The Storm ... I liked this model of the cyclone because it has an intuitive feel to it and invites the imagination to consider its implications. Good models ought to yield plausible predictions - so since The Storm Of Democrats is now upon us, what might consequences of it be if the model of the cyclone is a good one ? Cyclones are driven by heat and there will be plenty more of that now that The Conservative and Unionist Party are ruling The Non-Political System which in consideration of the facts and arguments we may also now call The Dis-United Kingdom. As the amount of heat increases the column of hot air pouring out of The Eye of The Storm in Westminster will be speeding up, sucking in more and more from all of those Ultraists spiraling around it who in turn will be increasingly drawn out by the speed of events the closer they are to The Eye of The Storm. But we do not live in a Republican Political System, or indeed in any political system at all because in fact we live together on an island which is still fictitiously divided according to some vaguely half-remembered feudal past when the Aristocracy treated us as their live-stock in which we conveniently had the ability to double as cannon-fodder when they required it. We still live in a political system dominated by the Aristocracy as demonstrated by the key document which secures to them their power to abuse us, although no Republican would agree to the idea that Magna Carta can be considered to be a law because it establishes the principle of multiple standards justice i.e. it establishes injustice as normal which is why American billionaires, Russian oligarchs and Italian mafiosa flock to the courts of The English Law in London where they can be confident of securing almost any kind of injustice if they can pay for it.

But London has a problem - a problem which I have been talking about for decades - it is economically dependent upon the activities of banks and insurance companies and stock brokers which are now all conducted by the use of automatic programming using computers which arecommunicating through international telecommunications links ... and not only can these programmes be relocated overnight but there is now also a whole series of good reasons for the corporations involved in this to do so : aging telecommunications in comparison to China, a large amount of capital waiting in China, a government even less interested in maintaining the appearance of Democracy and The Rule of Law - in China. This is a big problem for us in Wales because our economy is not an economy at all but an expenditure dispensed here by The United Kingdom. Ours is a society in which everybody is in some way a claimant of welfare - from our homeless sleeping on the streets to our bllionaires sleeping on the stocks and shares paid for with the taxes collected ... in The City in London.

Now you may complain about the bankers in The City in London paying themselves a bigger amount in bonus and a lesser amount in tax, but if the banks and insurance companies and stock brokers all disappear over night then then not only will The Dis-United Kingdom not collect about 20% of its taxes from them but possibly they will not collect as much as another 20% because of all of that part of the economy of this island which their untaxed monies financed. The available tax take left to distribute in Wales will make our present difficulties look positively like prosperity - if we get any of it at all, because in order to keep us on board with The Dis-United Kingdom our communities have arguably been given more than our fair share : it is of course difficult for poor Welsh people to actually know that poor English people are not having their homes decorated by their local councils with free Christmas trees and that in their poorer communities there is not merely potholes in their streets but grass and even small bushes growing in them. I am not talking about the Barnett formula here - I am talking about how The Democrats in Westminster have been hurting The People in England and how they will deflect the anger which should be rightly directed at themselves onto us. This is what I mean by " The United Ultraism " by which we will all be set at each others' throats by " The Democrats in ... oh ... Wherever ... why not consider ... The Isle of Man ?

I have just had a cup of tea and a cigarette and some amusing thoughts but I do not think that I ought to play this for laughs.

As the situation heats up The Cyclone not only spins faster because of the column of air rising faster and thus dragging the heated air in faster but in what amounts to a feedback mechanism this also causes The Eye of The Storm to become increasingly smaller. Translating this into a model for Republicanism what this means is that the Res Publica as The Eye of The Storm will be steadily decreasing in size and will potentially become so small as to effectively disappear - and in The Dis-United Kingdom it is already very small because this non-political system is in my theory " The United Ultraism," a permanent storm akin to The Eye of The Planet Jupiter ... ugh - a very unhappy mythological reference ... The political storm raging around us right now surrounds us with the Lies of Hierarchy, The Hatreds of Democracy, The Enslavements of Aristocracy and The Wars of Monarchy - and yet there is as yet still a small breathing space left to us : it is not possible for us to see into the clouds swirling around us, but we can at least still see ourselves clearly - but we will not if The Eye of The Storm closes upon us ... so either we have to conspire to keep it open ... or expire ?

I appreciate that " The People Who Have Not A Clue Why dai Bothers To Write This Sort Of Thing " will either think that this is twaddle or just weird. I feel that this is Art.

To accept the norms of The Dis-United Kingdom, and thus to adopt the same methods as " The United Ultraism " is not merely immoral - it is arguably dangerous : in this model it actually feeds The Cyclone with more heat which makes it spin faster and so close The Eye of The Storm more quickly which by analogy is thus reducing the Res Publica even more. I guess that this can not actually happen in accordance with " The Natural Law " but within my scheme of things the sensible way to fight fire is with water, and therefore the way to hold open " The Eye of The Storm " and thus save the Res Publica is to oppose " The Sinister Politics " of " The Cyclone " which is moving in " The Left Hand Path " with " The Dextrous Politics " of " The Anti-Cyclone " which is moving in " The Right Hand Path " of Truth, Love, Freedom, Peace in order to enable us to re-establish The Life of The People of The People in Wales and The World instead of our confirming The Death of The People in Wales and The World through participating in this Non-Political System of Lies, Hatred, Enslavement and War. ... ( You Know This Mannerist Style of Emphasising Phrases Through Capitalisation Used To Amuse Me But It Is Even Beginning To Annoy ME.)

" The Politics of The Anti-Cyclone " are of course merely those of " The Open Conspiracy " - I am not re-inventing " The Wheel of The World " in advocating such ideas !
