Sunday 14th July 2019 - given last year's form : probably gathering at The David Williams' Memorial circa 20.00pm to sing The Internationale then off to The Court House Pub - just two hundred yards east along the footpath above Caerphilly castle's southern moat - to have a drink, probably a meal and almost certainly a conversation ... all in the sunny sunshine of Yr Wlad o'r Hwyntwyr ...

[ I AM JUST EXPERIMENTING THERE TO SEE WHAT OUR NEW STYLE LOGO MIGHT LOOK LIKE ]

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=7152#7152

Dear " Yes Cymru "

I wrote the following email over some other emails about the attached document which I am inviting people to come and discuss on July 14th,

I came to the launch of " Yes Cymru " and several people have urged me since to become involved but I see no reason to do so as a Republican.

Dafydd and I came to a meeting of " Yes Cymru " near Pontypool at the invitation of Rhisiart and we found ourselves back into the 1970s again.

I share many of the sentiments of " Yes Cymru " but if you want such things then why do you make them dependent upon our independence ?

I am writing this email to you on the evening before this unwanted European Election of 2019 - which will be followed by this unwanted Brexit.

I have dubbed tomorrow " D-Day - Disappointment Day " - because having voted for Brexit now The People in Wales would vote against Brexit.

" Yes Cymru " advocates for Democracy - but " Y Repwblic " advocates for Republicanism - " Yes Cymru " is a wish-list - " Y Repwblic " is a plan.

" Yes Cymru " thinks that it has a plan - that everything can be done once we have obtained independence - after which we will be a Republic.

" Y Repwblic " thinks that it has a wish-list - that everybody can do something before our society collapses - The Republic in Wales exists now.

" Yes Cymru " appears to be shy of using the word " Republican " because it does not know what Republicanism is - please read " Y Repwblic."

Better still - get the membership of " Yes Cymru " to read our standard modern text - " Republicanism " - Philip Petit - Oxford University Press.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Republicanism-Theory-Freedom-Government-Political/dp/0198296428 AND WRITE A MODERN CONSTITUTION !

Then " Y Repwblic " will not have to waste our time and yours by creating " PYR " thus duplicating the membership and efforts of " Yes Cymru."

[ MY EMAIL GREW TO TOO MUCH FUN FOR ME AND SO IT WOULD WASTE THE TIME OF THE PEOPLE IN " YES CYMRU " - BUT I LEFT IT BELOW ]

Yours Sincerely,

David B Lawrence = Dai Saw = dai repwblic

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You will see from some of these emails below how and why I differ from your stance - and why it amused me to pun " PYR? " against " YES! "

The text in such a handout has to be brief and "Open " to invite a broader participation within our " Conversations with Wales' Republicans."

The symbolism deployed on the left however may be obscure to those who do not have the time to trawl through my scrawl to find answers.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The " Red, White and Green " tricolour has its origins in 1792 when The People in Wales and The World still admired The French Revolution.

It belongs to this group of " Internationalist Republican " ( i.e. Bonapartist ) flags - Italy and - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Mexico

I always thought that " Y Ddraig Goch " looked suspiciously " Republican " - recently I have argued that it was a visual pun referring to Draco -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco_(lawgiver) - in other words " Y Ddraig Goch " was devised to disguise " Y Repwblic " planted in our flag.

Tricolours and tribands in " The Roman Colours " were easily made - " Y Ddraig Goch " was difficult to make - and thus kept out of 19c riots.

The " White " Republicans in 19c Wales - mostly clerics, lawyers and doctors - intended to establish The Rule of Law - " The Draconian Law."

If you convert " Y Ddraig Goch " into a triband or tricolour - by using the rules of heraldry - you get red, white, green - " Lliwiau Rhufeiniaid."

I amuse myself with this stuff : that was a Republican Culture in 19c Wales - but I want to promote is The Republican Culture in 21c Wales.

I promote a " Civic Republican " culture akin to that of The " White " Republicans in 19c Wales because The Politics in Wales lacks " Civility."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civility = " … the term denoted the state of being a citizen and hence good citizenship or orderly behaviour."

That page links to - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Day_of_Peace - " Civility " is a key value of The Peace Movement in Wales.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since its creation in 2007 " Y Repwblic " has been conducted on the basis of " The Open Conspiracy " and we do not censor contributions.

The contributions made over those years have given " Y Repwblic " a distinctly anti-militarist " Pacificator or Pacifist ? " stance - " White."

We were very pleased with ourselves to have succeeded in staking out and defending the traditional versions of Republicanism in Wales.

We started to discuss how to propagate these without founding a traditional political party - for various reasons - by using micro-parties.

I proposed that these be spontaneously organised by activists defending their council wards but sharing an identity - " Plaid Y Repwblic."

I proposed that all micro-parties within " Plaid Y Repwblic " should agree to " Pacificator or Pacifist " stances to avoid the fate of WSRM.

I proposed that " PYR " might be a separate project from " Y Repwblic " here - http://repwblic.informe.com/plaid-y-repwblic-dt1327.html

I proposed that " PYR " adopt these two symbols - " [ - ] " to represent " Pacificators " and " The White Poppy " to represent " Pacifists."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
POST SCRIPT 27-05-19 in the next post below I improvised " (0) " for " The White Poppy "
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" [ - ] " - had already been devised as a symbol for " Y Repwblic " to denote that we will accept all contributions " [ Left - Centre - Right ] "

" [ - ] " - had already a resemblance to the symbol being adopted by " Pacificators " from the Israeli organisation " Breaking The Silence."

" [ - ] " - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breaking_the_Silence_(non-governmental_organization) = https://www.breakingthesilence.org.il/

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" The White Poppy " was a reaction to " The Red Poppy " after WW1 - when hundreds of thousands of The People in Wales rejected war.

" The White Poppy " was a reaction to Plaid Cymru backsliding on their " Pacificator or Pacifist " stance and adopting " The Yellow Poppy."

https://www.ppu.org.uk/remembrance-white-poppies - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-politics-35916778

" The White Poppy " was a reaction to " Red, White, Green " being rejected in favour of " White and Purple " in the logo of " Y Repwblic."

" The White Poppy " bears a strong resemblance to The White and Black Cockade in 18c Wales which denoted Republican sympathies.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cockade - " when France became an ally of the United States, the Continental Army pinned the white cockade of the French Ancien Régime onto their old black cockade; the French reciprocally pinned the black cockade onto their white cockade, as a mark of the French-American alliance " - [ THE WHITE COCKADE IN 18c WALES MEANT " JACOBITE " - BUT LATER IT WAS ASSOCIATED WITH " JACOBIN." ]

" The White Cockade " has been a symbol of opposition against " The Black Cockade " of The United Kingdom for over three hundred years.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

" White " is the traditional colour used by The Republicans in Europe because it refers to the togas of " The Candidates " - " The Whites."

The Republicans in Rome divided into two groups against Caesar's coup - those led by Cicero wore white - those led by Cato wore black.

The White Toga with The Purple Stripe denoted a defiant citizenship - The Black Toga denoted mourning for the loss of their citizenship.

Cicero wrote the book " De Res Publica " from which all " Republicanisms " are derived - Anthony assassinated him and cut off his hand.

When " Civs " present " The Open Hand ( of Cicero ) " as a gesture we are referring to his martyrdom in defending The Republic in Rome.

Cato fought Caesar and refused to accept his pardon - he committed suicide as a citizen rather than be a traitor to The Republic in Rome.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We played with many logos for but our letter head is still - " White " with " The Purple Stripe " with " Y REPWBLIC " on that in " White."

Which led to my arguing about adopting " Y Faner Wen " - which is of course the old bed sheet which we daub with slogans for demos.

When Owain Glyndwr rebelled against the usurper Henry IV he raised " Y Faner Wen " of Gwynedd but added " Y Ddraig Aur " upon it.

" The White Flag in Parley " came to mind so I made up gags about pirates and parliaments - to illustrate The Peace in Republicanism.

Dear Rob,

Rhisiart is a Nationalist Republican - almost Alt-Right sometimes I think - whereas I am generally viewed as a woolly-minded old Liberal-Leftie.

I hope that you can find this amusing - I enjoyed doing the art work - but to be honest the prospects for " PYR " being realised are pretty slim !

Is there an Alt-Left in The USA ? … Is there now anything left in The USA ? …

Dear Rhisiart,

I hope that you enjoy this piece - would you be so kind as to distribute it to the likely suspects which you know - post this on your FB perhaps ?

As you know I decided years ago to not use social media lest it link family and friends to false " Republicans " who might link to " Y Repwblic."

A good old fashioned " Chain Email " in which sympathisers forward this email discretely to those they know to be interested would be nice ...

I would like to see a few unfamiliar but friendly faces for a drink and Conversations with Wales' Republicans in Caerphilly on July 14th 2019.

Nothing fancy - but a serious discussion about the consequences of the disaster that will overcome Wales on D-Day = Disappointment Day

2019 European Parliament election in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia

The United Kingdom's component of the 2019 European Parliament election will be held on Thursday 23 May 2019. Initially, the elections were not planned as the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union ( following the 2016 referendum ) was set for 29 March 2019.

Dear Christine,

there I go again - abusing the Welsh … I really ought to accept your offer and come over to abuse the Irish and have a holiday from Cymraeg.

https://www.yes.cymru/ = https://cy.yes.cymru/ = had a fairly decent demo at the feet of John Bachelor " The Friend of Freedom " recently.

Dafydd and I went to a " Yes! " meeting near Pontypool a while ago - up to our old tricks again as The Fist and Hand - Left and Right - of God.

I do not think that Dafydd really gives a toss any more forty years after - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1979_Welsh_devolution_referendum

I think that I really do still give a toss - given that this morning I punned " PYR? " off " Plaid Y Repwblic " - i.e. " WHY? " - Why agree to " Yes! " ?

I think that " Yes! " will fail because it has no coherent political philosophy - Nationalist sentimentalism without any stated morality or ethics.

On the other hand " PYR? " remains but an argument for resurrecting the kind of " Civic Republicanism " which John Bachelor was famous for.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Batchelor_(politician) = one inspiration for = http://repwblic.informe.com/plaid-y-repwblic-dt1327.html

I will probably paste this into Y Repwblic as the proposed discussion piece for " Y Dydd Rhydd " - but who with - " Daf and Dai " are splitters ?

http://repwblic.informe.com/y-dydd-rhydd-2019-gorff-14-july-bastille-day-dt1550.html = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsFzc0wAtFs

Perhaps I should change my tag again - to " Lawretta " - my sentimentality about men not being able to have babies was just part of the row.

Let me give The World and Wales some advice - " Hell hath no fury like a Feminist Republican advised - she will argue for The Pubic Interest ."

So recently I parted with the remnant of " The Cardiff Illuminati " after thirty five years of friendships - splitters ! - I prefer to be a just tosser !

I hope that you are all well over there - is there any sign of The Republicanisms in Ireland reviving ? - Still stuck with Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail ?

Dear Tom Deacon - Western Mail - Wales Online

after you left me your note I took the time to spend several hours sketching out the sort of story that I thought would interest your readers.

I also predicted to you that with my politics involved within that story - which has been suppressed for decades - your editor would reject it.

I take it that what I predicted happened - never the less I would like to take the opportunity once again to demonstrate my pacifist politics.

I put out a general invitation to everybody every year to forget their sectarian differences and join me for a drink in Caerphilly on July 14th.

Each year I try to provide a handout to illustrate some kind of theme for these " Conversations with Wales' Republicans " with a momento.

Give this 2019 European election happening on Thursday I have returned to - http://repwblic.informe.com/plaid-y-repwblic-dt1327.html

" Y Repwblic " has some damaged administration files which result in it declaring on the forum's Index page that it is locked - use " Search."

I was caught up in the Photobucket row - my images were denied display to extort money from me - so displaying this image is a problem.

But I will probably write some more about " PYR? " for this year's " Y Dydd Rhydd " - " Pyr " in Welsh = " Why " - " Because " - " Since " - " ? "

THE TEXT IN THIS IMAGE -

The meta-psychologist and meta-ideologist who thirty years ago discussed creating a marriage, babies and books.
Given his subsequent history David believes that Fruito and Florry were " Codependent on the basis of Narcissism."

Julia joined The Establishment in Wales and made a marriage, a baby and a book - " Liberal Conservative Socialist."
David joined The Anti-Establishment in Wales having lost everything in the 1990s - " Anarchist Communist Fascist."

Cutmore and Lawrence no longer communicate with each other which the latter deems to be The Problem in Politics.
Julia and David are as estranged as Democracy and Republicanisms in Wales where the marriage was never made.

Republicanisms in Wales are " Codependent on the basis of Narcissism " - many maniples no longer communicate.
Thousands of Republicans - Communist Socialist Anarchist Liberalist Fascist Conservatist - in hundreds of handfuls.

Twenty percent of The Electorate in Wales identify themselves as " Republicans " but they will not elect extremists.
Seventy percent of The Republicans in Wales are Centrist - " White " - rejecting Left and Right - " Red and Green."

" White " is the synthesis of - Purple Red Orange Yellow Green Blue - by communication in hundreds of handfuls.
Twenty percent of The Vote in Wales can elect The Government in Wales - Plaid Y Repwblic - if we can synthesise.

Fifty percent of The Electorate in Wales do not vote - The Democrats in Wales are debating fining and jailing them.
Five percent refuse to register to vote - despite The Electoral Registration Act 2013 legislating a £1000 fine and jail.

Please scatter this around and discuss " Plaid Y Repwblic " - whatever our politics we must defend De Res Publica.
The United Kingdom is now failing - inter-dependence is more realistic than independence - The United Republic.

First Minister of Wales - Mark Drayford AM

Presiding Officer of The National Assembly for Wales - Elin Jones AM

Dear Mark Drayford and Elin Jones,

I am not sure whether I am offering you advice or requesting your advice about WNA Standing Orders.

The People in Wales have changed their minds and agree with those in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The People in England are deeply divided and Theresa May proposed a second referendum on Brexit ?

The Welsh National Assembly on Tuesday could hold an urgent debate or ask an emergency question.

A statement of opinion as to whether The House of Commons should demand a UK General Election ?

I am not merely thinking of Standing Order 12 but also about Standing Orders 21, 26, 29 & 30-A,-B,-C.

A Prime Minister not elected but then calling for a UK General Election will be wasting months of time.

The economy in Wales will be the most impacted by Brexit of the four constituent countries of The UK.

I see no provisions within Standing Orders preventing The Welsh National Assembly debating the issue.

Yours Sincerely,

David B Lawrence, administrator of " Y Repwblic " - http://repwblic.informe.com - presently damaged !

Well - once you have spent the time creating something then you make sure that you put it to work - The Establishment in Wales can and do - more often than not - just throw letters into the bin or press delete at the sight of a name or email address - at least The Silk Commission were polite enough to write me a letter telling me that they had refused to publish my " Submission to The Commission " along with the other correspondences submitted to their inquiry ... I think that The Western Mail have had a policy of suppressing everything with the word " republican " in it since the 1870s when it was founded in Cardiff as a Conservative newspaper to both promote the views of The Establishment in Wales and take advertising money away from The Cambrian which was Wales' most successful weekly which reported The Republicans in Wales in their last big swell in numbers in the 1870s and which had been founded in Swansea some sixty years before as a Liberal newspaper -

Dear Catrin Pascoe, Western Mail

I know - not newsworthy - but I send you this to keep you in touch with the idea that Republicans do try to engage with mainstream politicians.

I have begun writing again after a difficult six months which began with recovering - http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=7155#7155

I exchanged emails with Tom Deacon who left me a note asking about life in [ = Butetown ] - well - bad enough to turn me into a Republican.

You will note that I laid the emphasis in my story to him upon law and order - that " xxxxxx " refers to " blessed are those who keep the law."

Because that is what Republicanism is all about - either that " Sovereignty is in The Law " or that " Sovereignty is opposed to The Rule of Law."

It would be nice if my " Plaid Y Repwblic " - " PYR " - is the Republicanism for Wales. Do you know about " The Cambrian V The Western Mail " ?

A Liberal V Conservative newspaper war : I understand that The Western Mail was founded because The Cambrian reported the Republicans ?

I am not unsympathetic to the need for profitable advertising but why not occasionally consider reporting the news because it is newsworthy ?

Yours Sincerely

David B Lawrence,

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ahem ... when I start writing emails like this then The Political Logic in The Scribbling Solution tends to demand that I put my mouth where my money is ... Otherwise I might as well be politely propping up Moritz and steadying his pint whilst he lectures The World and Wales about what why we should all be doing as he says - which is not what he is doing ... within every hundred of The People in Wales The Democrats in The National Assembly for Wales are Coercing Fully Ninety Nine - One Not Agreeing ... mmm ... and most of " The White Ones " are propping up The United Kingdom instead of prepping up The United Republic ... >sigh< ... In Welsh Politecal Society ( WPS ) it is generally considered to be bad form to correspond with other than those to whom you are addressing your questions and / or your demands for action - you are supposed to treat all of those #%7£@$&s that you have to deal with as if they are there to help you rather than ... anyway ...

... For example I have in the past written about a number of planning and construction problems in trying to draw attention to how legislations and regulations are being flouted - e.g. I start by confronting a contractor - appeal to a building control officer - contact my county councillor - write to an assembly member - describe the problem at length to my member of parliament - precisely explain the whole matter citing the relevant legislation to the minister - patiently conduct my own observations and experiments and submit a report to the prime minister complete with all of the relevant citations that I can find in the academic, scientific and technical literature available - and ... to be honest I swear to you that the only person who conscientiously scrutinises each and every piece of legislation and regulation made in The United Kingdom is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - and The Democrats in Number Ten have always ignored her too - and Carlo !

Anyhow - WPS ! - I have never junk-mailed The Democrats in The National Assembly for Wales - or anyone - and although I did not have enough time to write them a personal email each to beg them to cite my email to Mark Drakeford and Elin Jones and " just-do-something-on-at-least-one-Tuesday-in-the-month " - I did at least address each Assembly Member individually and separately sent them a lovingly crafted copy of the following email with their given name gilded on the basis that in this case they are all of my - our - representatives serving in but one single constituency - Wales and The World ( + Wrexham ) ... In other words - under NAW Standing Orders 30-A, -B, -C - they are all participating in the decisions concerning the legislation which must precede Brexit ...

... and The Democrats in Conservative & Unionist Party in Westminster who have been totally disregarding The Public Interest in Tits and Boobs - except for Gove and Johnson - for over two years now ( and had not even got as far as Page Three of The European ) have decided that their political obstruction and diplomatic incompetence has all been Theresa May's fault and ... >sob< ... So I was sure that " Something Has To Be Done " ... e.g. like addressing those you want to persuade in a Republican manner but in a respectful way - like not using " Reight-hon - Bruvvers an' Sissers ! " - or " WNA " instead of " NAW " ... WPS ! ... er ... " WNA " is my habitual way of referring to " NAW " ... and unfortunately I now see that I commenced the subject line of this important email with " WNA " - A Freudian Slap ?

However - you might like to read these very untypical emails to The National Assembly in Wales : The UK Parliament must now be challenged.

All Members of The National Assembly for Wales, Cardiff Bay CARDIFF CF99 1NA - Tel 0300 200 XXXX

Dear Assembly Members - ,

I assure you that I have never emailed you all together before - I only write emails to relevant persons - which in this case is definitely all of you !

As you can read in my email below I wrote to Mark Drayford and Elin Jones concerning The Standing Orders of The National Assembly for Wales.

Of course I am not an Assembly Member and only you can decide between yourselves what you wish to discuss between yourselves in Plenary.

But I would like you to not only discuss but unanimously agree to express an opinion upon whether there should now be a UK General Election.

I presume that every Democratic Party will have their private interests to express but I want you to collectively behave as The Republican Party.

I want you to not only collectively consider The Public Interest in Wales but De Re Publica in England, Scotland, Northern and Southern Ireland.

I hope that you subscribe to the ideal that party candidates once elected must act as constituency representatives for those who oppose them.

I would like you to subscribe to the idea that you have responsibilities beyond your own constituencies - beyond Wales - to The Public Interest.

I will paste this email into this topic thread on our website which is awaiting a transplant = http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1550

I will leave you to consider " Y Repwblic Yng Nghymru a'r Byd " - my view upon The Crisis in Brexit is akin to my poetic criticism of " Yes Cymru."

" Oes Cymru ? " - think that they have ' The Plan ! ' - which ' Y Repwblic ' deems insane -_
" Na Cymry ! " - we have to prepare - ' The Constitution ! ' - so please let us now explain -_
If " Oes " were truly caring for - " The Welsh Nation ? " - then how could they believe that right_
To have been so irresponsible - by giving you - ' The People in Wales ' - this - as such a fright -_
Openly declaring - " We will then design - Democratically ! - ' The Parachute ! ' - but only after - you - have jumped out of - ' The Plain ! ' "

I was just commenting to myself in recording " PYR? " and " (0) " as new innovations into the admin book of " Y Repwblic " that perhaps " (0) " should be placed on the left of the party title " Plaid Y Repwblic " since Pacifists tend to be more Left-ish and Pacificators more Right-ish politically - " (0) " and " [-] " are more convenient to use as a shorthand symbols because they employ standard font characters ... However - in the art work for the " The White Poppy " symbol I changed the normal axis from diagonal to horizontal in order to suggest " The Eye of The Enlightenment " - but now - by introducing " (0) " - I am changing that to a vertical axis which ... ahem ... given my recent remark about " Y " that - " Hell hath no fury like a Feminist Republican advised - she will argue for The Pubic Interest " - " (0) " may not be the sort of symbol that I really want to associate " Plaid Y Repwblic " with ... but then on the other hand if The Citizennes in Wales just have to be obsessed with their own and other women's genitalia then perhaps " (0) " might actually excite their sensibilities and recruit a few more of them to The Good Old " PYR " ... because " pyr " / " pa'hyr " could be translated into English as " cause " / " because " - ?

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ovular

" ... Trebilco considers ' seminar ' offensively ' masculinist,' so she has replaced it with ' ovular,' which she regards as its feminist equivalent ... " - Christina Hoff Sommers - author of - ' Who Stole Feminism ? How Women Have Betrayed Women ' - 1994

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_Stole_Feminism%3F

" ' Who Stole Feminism ? How Women Have Betrayed Women ' - is a 1994 book about American feminism by Christina Hoff Sommers, a writer who was at that time a philosophy professor at Clark University. Sommers argues that there is a split between equity feminism and what she terms " gender feminism." Sommers contends that equity feminists seek equal legal rights for women and men, while gender feminists seek to counteract historical inequalities based on gender. Sommers argues that gender feminists have made false claims about issues such as anorexia and domestic battery and exerted a harmful influence on American college campuses. ' Who Stole Feminism ? ' received wide attention for its attack on American feminism, and it was given highly polarized reviews divided between conservative and liberal commentators. Some reviewers praised the book, while others found it flawed."

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=feminista

Feminista - " A third wave feminist ... A woman ( or man ) who actively supports the rights of women in all arenas, regardless of multiple definitions or stereotypes of femininity. Supporting women's right to choose to be whatever it is that they desire, whether that is a mother, banker, artist, doctor, teacher, lawyer - or all of the above. A feminista is not necessarily " that girl from women's studies who can't get a date " or inherently unattractive in any way. She ( or he ) is many things or anything, so long as that person actively supports a woman's right to have the opportunity to do anything she imagines, without societal, cultural, religious and especially political laws or preconceptions limiting her potential. A feminista also supports women's reproductive rights."

I have finally turned to the news at noon and it is much the same as it has been for more than two years.

http://repwblic.informe.com/april-fools-day-2019-bullsxit-dt1383.html

" April Fools' Day 2019 : British Unionist Loyalist Liars' Stupid Xenophobic Idiocy Triumph ? "

There was so little factual news about " Bullsxit " over the next two years that I had almost nothing to write about.

Given that I want to just kill an hour before the 13.00 pm news on BBC Radio 4 ... a little reverie about the history of the symbols typos which The Republicans in Wales sometimes use ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_invasion_of_Wales - sort of useful ...

" V " or " \/ " depending on the font characters used = Americans and others know this and use their gesture as " The Peace Sign " with the fore and middle fingers held above the palm as a peaceful gesture and a warm greeting - and some are vaguely aware of the English and Welsh and others reversing it to present the back of the hand as an aggressive gesture and a cold dismissal ... There are various stories as to its origins e.g. The Churches in Medieval Wales were crowded with statues of saints making this gesture as a blessing upon those before them and Catholic Christians warmly greeted each other with it so in one sense it is a sign of " Parley " - " Let us start a conversation ? " - but equally medieval churches in Wales were part of The State in Wales i.e. The ( Norman ) French who incrementally invaded The Principalities in Wales - after they completely smashed The Kingdom in England and started enslaving not only The People in England after 1066 but also The People in Scotland and Ireland in the succeeding centuries - and had a problem with The People in Wales who did not understand the meaning of " paix " in French and kept going on about the meaning of " hedd " in Welsh as taught to them by The Clergy in Wales - so The Norman French in Medieval Wales decided to replace all of those with The Clergy in France and furthermore educate them all to speak The Prince's French too ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wales_in_the_Roman_era - more interesting ?

... The Romans had encountered the same difficulties with The Welsh in The Old North of The Blessed Land - " Alban " which was bowdlerised over into " Albion " by Victorian Celticising Romanticists who decided that this really only meant Scotland although the Scots were still Irish at the time that this happened ... Calgacus did not understand the meaning of " Pax Romana " either and clearly remonstrated with the Roman General about his definition of the word " peace " - as reported by the historian Tacitus who apparently got the story from his father in law Agricola who as The Governor in Britannia was constantly perplexed by his conversations with awkward hair-splitting people like Boudicca - " Gwallter " has translated his speech thus - and incidentally the tribal name of the " Caledonians " in Old ( Northern ) Brythonic or " Proto-Welsh " could well be translated as " The Hard Men " -

http://gwallter.com/history/what-calgacus-said.html - his own translation !

" When I consider how this war began and the danger we find ourselves in I’m certain that our unity today will signal the beginning of freedom for the whole of Britain. All of us here are united and unknown to slavery. We’ve nowhere left to flee to by land, or indeed by sea, since the Roman navy threatens us there. Armed warfare is the right course for brave men like us, but it would be the safest way even if we were cowards. We’ve had mixed fortunes in our earlier battles with the Romans but we still have hope that we can find safety. We Caledonians are the greatest of all the Britons. In these remote unconquered regions we’ve kept ourselves uncontaminated by the slavery of oppressors. Up to now distance and obscurity have kept us free and safe. Today, though, the last coast of Britain lies bare to our enemies: to them it seems a great prize, the fools . No other peoples stand beyond us, nothing but waves and rocks – and more dangerous than both, our Roman enemies. Making concessions and being moderate isn’t going to save us from their tyranny. They rape the whole world. When they’ve finished devastating the land they turn their attentions to the sea. If their enemies have wealth they want it; if they’re poor, it makes no difference, they still hunger for power. Nowhere, east or west, is enough for them – they’re the only ones who lust after everything alike, rich or poor. Abduction, massacre, plunder they misname ‘law and order’. Where they make a desert they call it ‘peace’."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Agincourt - the facts - and the fable ...

The Battle of Agincourt is arguably the founding myth of The Nation in England - how Henry V the son of Henry IV - ( whom the loyalist rebel Owain Glyndwr fought against as The Usurper in England who had overthrown King Richard II - the last of the Frenchified Kings of England ) - managed to rally together the distrustful descendants of the Anglo-Saxons and Norman-French in The Kingdom of England and finally unite them together as " The English " by all sharing in a glorious victory on The Field in The Battle of Agincourt ... oh - and " The Welsh " were there too ... The idea of " nation " of course was actually forged by The People in The 16c - like Shakespeare and Bordin - who raided the history books and mixed up history with myth and legend ... and thus invented modern politics ... " Great Britain " was in fact invented by a Welshman - Sir William Maurice who led the " Plaid Cymry " at the court of James I of England having been either promoted or demoted from being James VI of Scotland - who wanted to get the anti-Welsh laws repealed because he was incensed that the anti-English laws in Scotland and the anti-Scottish laws in England had been repealed after The Union of The Crowns - in other words William Maurice was The Republican in 17c Wales who advocated for The Rule of Law by arguing that everybody in " The Kingdom of Great Britain " should be equal before The Law - even The King ! - and thus lit the fuse of what then exploded into The 17c Civil Wars in The Three Kingdoms ?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_sign - well ... there are lots of myths about it ...

The People in Wales do tend to wander about in The World with gloomy little clouds over our heads - it is probably genetic or an historic curse or the fault of The National Assembly for Wales or something like that - so whenever we gather together in any numbers it tends to rain wherever we are ... At The Battle in Agincourt it was pelting down with rain for hours beforehand so The King in France knew what he was up against - The Longbowmen in The Army in Wales - and having heard that they actually outnumbered The Infantry in The Army in England at Agincourt he was furious to hear about this bunch of peasants offering the " V " as The Sign of Blessing across the battle field to The Crossbowmen in The Army in France - why ? ...

... Because you can not un-string a crossbow and whilst the bolts can be kept in a box their mechanisms are not only difficult to keep dry but are very slow to re-load - whereas you can un-string a longbow because it is basically a lump of wood and therefore it does not matter if the bow itself is wet - although the flights of the arrows are more difficult to keep dry - and so The King of France cursed The Longbowmen in Wales for bringing their secret weapon with them - rain ! - and swore to cut off those two fingers from The Open Hand in Wales that was offering peace - he wanted war ... and so he sent in the cavalry and ... The Longbowmen in The Army in Wales therefore took off The Monmouth Caps - in France - in order to pray ... within which they kept their bowstrings dry ... and then having reversed the " V " as The Sign of Cursing they gestured it across The Field of Agincourt ... A longbowman with a dry bow string could loose twelve arrows a minute to strike up to four hundred yards away ... A crossbowman with a wet bow string could loose four bolts a minute to strike - four hundred feet away ? ... The Kingdom of France was The Superpower in Medieval Europe - armed with the most up to date technology of The Arms Race in The Hundred Years War - yet it lost - so - was Agincourt more " Uncle Ho " than " Henry \/ " ?

Annwyl Dafydd,

Mrs Jones-Jones-Prichard-Lewis-Howells-Evans is telling me that if I am putting this with Carmarthen coach he is putting this with Llandeilo coach and he is putting this with Llandovery coach and he is driving to Builth Wells where this is waiting for you with Mrs Tomas Prince of Wales who only is charging you a sixpence for it and she is cooking a very nice dinner for a shilling and she is washing her sheets properly even though I am thinking she is a Methodist. I am visiting her when Mr Richards is visiting for giving his condolences to Mrs Jones-Jones-Pritchard-Lewis-Howells-Evans and him talking bullocks which I do not understand. I am talking how she and me are milkmaids together and how she is marrying Mr Jones Tycerrig who is falling into his illnesses and is leaving her a widow first time - she is terribly upset to be all alone as a young woman with a big farm and promptly is marrying Mr Jones Pontfforest who is falling into his slate quarry - and so upset terrible by this she is running off to marry Mr Prichard Ynysfelin who is falling onto his threshing machine within three months - and she is deeply grieving and immediately Mr Lewis is running to console her and - well - I am talking about how Mrs Jones-Jones-Pritchard-Lewis-Howells-Evans is having so much bad luck and is having no children to comfort her but at least is having so many admirers coming to console her quite besides all of this property and money which is being very unusual for The Women in Wales - when Mr Prichard is excusing his self and Mrs Jones-Jones-Pritchard-Lewis-Howells-Evans is telling me I am hurrying home to write this letter and putting this with Carmarthen coach - is you knowing where Builth Wells is ?

Whilst looking for material on The Anti-Nuclear Protests in the 1950s - 1990s I am finding it increasingly difficult to locate stuff which I think that younger Republicans ought to be interested in - they go poking around in the remains of The Cold War in Wales and The World and can - if they want - actually find the physical remains of it - but - information about what we were doing forty or fifty or sixty or seventy or eighty or ninety or a hundred years ago is now apparently being swept off the internet - Google is re-writing The History in Wales and The World yet apparently they can not even find us on The Map of The Peace Movement in Wales and The World - in Googleland ... The Map in Republicanism is also being re-drawn ... but for whom - by whom - why whom ? ... This is the time for The Kids in Wales and The World in The Present to fight for The Kids in Wales and The World in The Future - which will be your own kids ... always assuming that you are not just going to screw around ... er ... like we did when we were supposed to be saving Our Kids ...

[ I WAS ENJOYING THOSE SHAGGY DRAGON STORIES - I WILL FINISH THEM ALL OFF LATER ]

[ THESE PHOTO-BANDITS EXTORTING MONEY FOR THEIR THIRD PARTY HOSTING ANNOY ME ]

You might be asking whether the following is relevant to this Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 thread ? ...

Well - consider the following email in which I explain why I got a bit panicky when this descended into farce with hundreds of personal photographs including those of friends and family being uploaded into Photobucket instead of its contents being downloaded lest they be deleted. If we do get around to discussing Brexit over a pint in Caerphilly on July 14th - and how it was funded by a handful of wealthy individuals who with so many lies so easily subverted The United United Kingdom in the pursuit of their private interests because it lacks the conventional constitutional protections of a normal modern political system to safeguard The Public Interest - then let us discuss how the suppression of The Public Discourse results in these religious and political extremists flourishing within The United Kingdom as a non-political system in which The Voters in 21c Wales are being driven by The Democrats in London in much the same way that The Cattle in 19c Wales were being driven by The Drovers to London - for sale and for slaughter ... The People in Wales are not like The People in The World - the former are taught to obey as subjects and the latter are educated to criticise as citizens - Liberty results in Civility - Slavery results in Savagery - Jo Cox is popularly portrayed as being the victim of a political extremist - but equally Thomas Mair might be portrayed as being The Victim of The Political Extremism of The United Kingdom : a xenophobic, paranoid, compulsive, criminal conspiracy ?

Jo Cox was murdered by Thomas Muir who is arguably but one symptom our society's insanity -

Dear Rob,

I have been arguing with Photobucket - perhaps you have heard that they are being accused of extortion ? - and it descended into farce earlier.

They appeared to threaten deletions if those of us arguing with them did not pay up before midnight because they ended the download option.

I was looking around on and off for a way around the problems of re-supporting 500 images scattered in 6300 pieces of writing on Y Repwblic.

With the deadline approaching I decided to follow some advice on one webpage and used the Photobucket phone app - it sort of backfired ...

... the phone started uploading family and friends photos onto Photobucket instead of downloading them into Drive and I could not stop it ...

... I had to go back into Photobucket to delete these uploads because " Republicans = terrorists " in The UK thanks to " patriot " propaganda ...

... both Left and Right wing vigilantes trawl through Republican websites and insinuate themselves eg " Facebook friends " to " infiltrate " us ...

... they come to meetings and demonstrations taking photos and gathering information to attempt to destroy the lives of their " enemies " ...

... these sorts of criminals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redwatch - can cause these sort of crimes - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo_Cox ...

Y Repwblic is conducted on the basis of " The Open Conspiracy " so our image libraries ought to be public - but our personal lives are private.

Except when we are choosing to take the piss out of each other as " The Cardiff Illuminati " of which " Y Repwblic " is a pale reflection online.

David

Subject: MY COMPLAINT TO THE PHOTO-BANDITS - FW: Transaction receipt

un-Dear Photobucket.com,

I am very unhappy about this : I know that you know that you are being accused of extortion for removing " download " and demanding money.

In the UK the appearance of a risk that Photobucket might delete over half of my files at midnight 31-05-19 demanded that I now do something.

I am using only 4% of the original free deal : less than 500 images posted over more than 10 years to support pieces of writing on " Y Repwblic."

500 images scattered through 6300+ pieces of writing - to set up another album elsewhere by hand - and match images to re-write addresses ?

Photobucket created massive headaches for me in removing " download " and I was returning to the problem time and again without the time.

I returned to the problem - examining various pieces of advice on the internet - one describing the use of a photobucket app which I opted for.

The photobucket app appeared to offer an option " upload / download " - no : all the photos in my phone are now uploading into photobucket.

I could not stop the photobucket app doing this - creating an even bigger problem instead of ending my original problem - so I paid for safety ?

Then I switched the phone off to stop my existing account storage limit being exceeded and spent an hour deleting the photos from my phone.

There is no way as a politico advocating a form of Republicanism in Wales that I want photos of my friends and family on this insecure website.

Please give me the contact details of your lawyers and state the jurisdiction which you have opted to be sued within - am I to suspect The UK ?

That is why I am an advocate of Republicanism in Wales - that bandits like Photobucket are here exploiting a legal system created for criminals.

Yours Sincerely,

David B Lawrence

Subject: PUNNING ACRONYM [ " Plaid Y Repwblic " ] = [ " PYR " ] + the word " Poblachiaethwyr " is still not in The GPC - would you care to include it now since it has been there in the title of the board and used in various discussions there for twelve years now ?

Dear GPC,

having written that email below to you - I might as well tell you that thirty years ago I came across the word " repybligwr " in a history book and looked it up in UCC's paper version of GPC and thus learnt of its history as a word and its alternative spellings. When everybody started to have access to each other's thoughts online I joined a bulletin board ctd.6.forumer.com and found a load of vicious nonsense being propagated as " Welsh Republicanism "using the conventional word " Gweriniaethwyr " and I posted up this - now transferred to here after the collapse of ctd.6

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=75

The administration of ctd.6 had collapsed and images of sex and violence were being posted which were offending lots of people who wanted to be rid of The Macho Militarists and Ultra-Nationalists - and several of us knew that behind " Cymru Rhydd " - which the board was created to promote by Christopher T Davies AKA " Comrade Fluffy Dragon " - were the remnants of " The Free Wales Army / Y Fyddin Rhyddid Cymru " which along with " Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru " had adopted the WRM Green Red White tricolour and so effectively destroyed the remains of " The Welsh Republican Movement " in the 1960s - which left conventional forms of Republicanism in Wales struggling to re-establish themselves for thirty years - until " The Welsh Socialist Republican Movement " finally seemed to be getting its act together circa 1980 but which in turn was destroyed by the infiltrators " WAWR - Workers Army of the Welsh Republic " resulting in Operation Julie, Conspiracy Trial, Cymru Goch etc.

[ POST SCRIPT - Not having a good day today - but not on LSD - OK ? - I fell about laughing when I made this my bedtime re-reading and saw that I had written ' Operation Julie ' - but that made me doubt even my own memory - I was standing rather too close to WSRM in 1982 but I was the SAC student representative for Wales and The West of England fighting the RIBA's reckless destruction of architectural schools on the basis that eight had to go regardless of which ones were chosen - which in turn placed me cheek by jowl with Brian Anson and The ARC who were mostly a bunch of prep-poseurs pretending to be Marxists - and I have after all been described as being a Passivist-Aggressivist Crypto-Fascist by those who are political illiterates ( " Me - ? - ' passive-aggressive ' - ? - PASSIVE - ??? " ) ... Anyhow - arguably simultaneously fighting Thatcher whilst studying architecture and participating in ' Synapse ' - which was a bit like ' Y Repwblic ' only posher - was but one of the stresses which led me to take out my frustrations upon a glass door rather than punch a close friend in the face for a stupid remark - so I know exactly where I was overnight 28th - 29th Aril 1982 - in The CRI after that close friend took me to hospital after he me found me crying my eyes out and cursing The Bastards in Westminster whilst I stood in a pool of my own blood whilst wishing that it was theirs ... ( ... this is but a short daigression ) ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Julie = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wZXfYDvoes

... It is a tough politics being a Pacificator you know - widely misunderstood : the gist of it is this - ever since 1789 the guiding principles of The Republicans in Europe have been set out in tables of Rights and Duties - Republicanism is not Socialism : there are no free beers and sandwiches - The Social Contract demands a Duty in exchange for a Right ... The First Duty of The Republican is not to kill - and The First Right of The Citizen is to not be killed - The People in The Other World have neither Rights nor Duties - they are neither Republicans nor Citizens - they are either corpses or ashes - and they can have no claim upon The People in Our World - The Other World is merely imagined - like The United Kingdom or Wales - Our World is The World of The Living not The Dead - The Material World not The Ideal World - so kiss goodbye to all isms ! ... including The Republicanisms in The World - they are ideological critiques not licences to kill ... on 28th - 29th of April 1982 whilst I was acquiring my limp The People in The Other World dragged The People in Our World out of their beds in the middle of the night and made them confess to crimes which they did not commit - their confessions had been neatly typed up ready for them to sign before they were arrested in ... er ... no - ' Operation Fire ' was in 1980 ... um ... oh - let us just dub it - ' Operation United Kingdom ' - ? ... ( ... it was shorter ... ) ... ]

In the argument over what to do about ctd.6 I was advocating a collaborative effort to rescue the best material on ctd.6's bulletin board and transfer it by hand to another because we could not get access to the administration controls - but persuading The Republicans in Wales to work together is like herding budgerigars - they are of course all colourful in their own distinctive ways and they perch around chattering either with or rather at each other - but they resolutely will not fly together but rather are more willing to fly at each other to either fight - or fuck ! - I did not found repwblic.informe.com - what happened was that ( Huw Kevin ? = Pen Ddu ) got fed up being stuck out in Saudi Arabia watching all of this nonsense going on with the clock ticking away to the automatic deletion of ctd.6.forumer.com - so he named a new board " Y Repwblic " to either give me a kick up the arse or to lure me away using the title of my own leaflet - presented me with the admin key - then buggered off !

Pen Ddu made a fêteful decision in naming the new bulletin board " Y Repwblic " which has had many consequences the most important of which is that it accidentally solved the problem of being found by Google.com in the sprawling mess of the internet : if you type in the search " Repwblic " all that results are returns for " Republic " because the internet is Anglophone. I did not realise this until our search engine statistics began to rise and rise as people learned to search for " Y Repwblic " and repwblic.informe.com gradually became the largest political website in terms of file size in Europe - but our prominence and my developing hardline stance citing " The Model " then began to tell against us - we have now apparently been banned by over fifty countries and our success story was turned to ashes when first China then Russia blocked us where we were very popular ... whereas in Wales Y Repwblic's unpopular adoption of Alt-Right arguments from The USA but turning them into Alt-Left arguments critical not just of The United Kingdom merely having voting but of Democracy itself as the basis of The UK political system which is marginalising " us " - i.e. one fifth of The Electorate in Wales persistently identify themselves as " Republican " - and half of them do not vote !

A series of fateful decisions led " Y Repwblic " to drift and adopt a very hard line " Pure Republican " stance in line with Classical Republicanism's Pacifism and Internationalism which has given us a unique position in Welsh Political Society - WPS ! - apart from the fact that we now deal in a lot of Shaggy Dragon Stories, poems, jokes and political banter which apparently leads The People in Wales to think that we are not respectable. " Y Repwblic " has gone through a glacial slide over the past twelve years and basically has had four phases with a fifth proposed - micro-parties. After the collapse of The Welsh Republican Movement in the 1950s a lot of the kinds of people who were fellow travellers with it who strongly objected to - or obsessed about - bombs ran off to join The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and The Peace Movement in Wales is - in our opinion - where The Republicans in Wales took their politics of Human Rights and The Rule of Law - in other words the vast majority of the activists who might otherwise identify themselves as The Republicans in Wales retreated into Environmentalism etc and The Green Party etc.

What has any of this to do with Y Geriadur Prifysgol Cymru ? - I would invite you to look at our changing use of words like " Repwbligwyr " - I chose this over " Repybligwyr " as a joke - as I so often do - because apart from using it to parody " Republic.co.uk " which irritates me as being an advocate of anti-Monarchism which is not part of Republicanism and thus propagates the lies spread about our political beliefs for centuries - because ours is a Welsh outfit and therefore it is easy to remember how to find our website by substituting " W " for " Wales " for " U " ... Another part of the joke developed later by playing on " Y " having two divergent arms ( and thus being similar to the symbol for Universal Disarmament as opposed to Unilateral Disarmament as represented by The CND Symbol ) because that represents the constant choices which we have to make at The Crossroads in Political Life i.e. do we choose " The Left Hand Path of Sinister Politics - Lies, Hatred, Slavery, War - and Death " - or " The Right Hand Path of Dexterous Politics - Truth, Love, Liberty, Peace - and Life " ... The linguistic point is that " Y " in Welsh has two distinct sounds and is the only letter in The Alphabet in Welsh which has this ambiguous quality - is this " Y " being pronounced as " Open " or Closed " ? " Y Repwblic " is conducted on the basis of " The Open Conspiracy " which advocates for " The Open Society " i.e. Karl Popper etc.

When Pen Ddu / Huw Kevin presented me with " Y Repwblic " to administrate - first of all by the sheer manic labour of trying to beat the clock ticking upon the death and deletion of ctd.6.forumer.com by rescuing material from it - I wanted to hint at what was later symbolised by " [ - ] " which in itself has undergone a history of development in its meaning from " Left - Centre - Right " i.e. everything within The Public Discourse that is political - but excluding the non-political arguments of those who fantasise that Republicanism is conducted through criminal methods i.e. " [ - ] " can be construed as " The Rule of Law " or " All That Is Permissable " or " There is no censorship of any kind of ideology other than the publication of opinions and comment which might lead to the destruction of Y Repwblic - no sex, violence, sports talk i.e. no teenagers ! " Long before " [ - ] " as an abstract symbol for this on acquiring the administration of the bulletin board I added beneath the title " Y Repwblic " - " Conversations with Wales' Republicans : Poblachiaethwyr - Repwbligwyr - Gweriniaethwyr " - the word " Poblachiaethwyr " is still not in The GPC - would you care to include it now since it has been there in the title of the board and used in various discussions there for twelve years now ? I did not coin it - I came across it only once - somebody presumably was an enthusiast for Gaelic or Sinn Fein - " Y Phoblachiaeth " - " The Little People's / Poor People's / Workers' Republic " - ? - " The Republic of Y Tylwyth Teg ? " ... Yeah - I make up jokes about the history of that too !

The latest gag was the result of using GPC to confirm my suspicion that [ " Plaid Y Repwblic " ] could be punned using the acronym [ " PYR " ]

Y Repwblic is now explicitly identifying " Repwblicaniadd " with the specifically Centrist " White " Civic Republican tradition found in 19c Welsh Republicanism which emphasised Civility i.e. The Ethos of Citizenship - The Rule of Law - De Res Publica - A Classical Ciceronian Republicanism.

I hope that you have found this entertaining - I have to use all the material which I create because the time available for me to write is limited -

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=7176#7176 = this has been inserted into " Y Dydd Rhydd - 2019 Gorff 14 July - Bastille Day "

Oh - NO ! - I did not coin the term " Y Dydd Rhydd " - it was already in use forty years ago - checking GPC now - you do not have that either ?

" dydd rhydd " was being used in UWIST's Welsh School of Architecture - in bilingual notices, my Welsh is lousy - to denote a " day off " c1980 ?

Yours Faithfully,

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me tell it to you straight - no jokes or comic cryptic cross words - make of it what you want.

You know how I think - I write it all over my name and my life - not merely all over Y Repwblic.

You know what I think about thinking - that our ideologies are descriptions of our experiences.

Ideologies are useful and necessary tools for any decision making process - but they are tools.

Political systems are but decision making processes - voting is a bad decision making process.

Pure Democracy is a bad political system - and - Pure Republicanism is a bad political system.

" The Will of The People " is decided by voting - facts and arguments decide " The General Will "

" The Sovereignty of People " = Democracy - isn't - Republicanism = " The Sovereignty of Law "

" The Shotgun Wedding " marries Democracy to Republicanism creating " Checks and Balances "

" The Marriage Certificate " defining " The Social Contract " is recorded by " The Constitution "

The Democrats in Wales refuse " The Marriage Proposals " made by The Republicans in Wales.

The Democrats in Wales enforce " The Common Law Marriage " upon The Republicans in Wales.

The Democrats in Wales celebrating " Liberty Raping Justitia " offends The Republicans in Wales.

Liberty in Wales is obviously " Codependent on The Basis of Narcissism " with Justitia in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales demand " Liberty Cease Abusing Justitia " of The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales demand " The Jurisdiction of The Law " from The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales demand " Separation and Settlement " from The Democrats in Wales.

Liberty in Wales is obviously " Abusing and Not Respecting The Boundaries " of Justitia in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales advise " Marriage Guidance Counselling " to The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales recommend " Systemic Politicotherapy " to The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales propose both " Marriage - AND - Divorce " to The Democrats in Wales.

Liberty in Wales is obviously " Molester " needing " Specific Issues Orders " for Justitia in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales plead for " Child Protection Orders " against The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales argue for " Prohibited Steps Orders " against The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales advocate for " Occupation Orders " against The Democrats in Wales.

Liberty in Wales is obviously " Irresponsible and Criminally Negligent " towards Justitia in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales will investigate " Re-Organised Crimes " by The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales will legislate " A Prevention of Bills Act " by The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales will prosecute " All Misrepresentations " by The Democrats in Wales.

Liberty in Wales is obviously " Licensing Cold Contempt and Ridicule " towards Justitia in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales will not " Legislate Without A Debate " with The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales will not " Scrutinise Yet Compromise " with The Democrats in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales will not " Select and Elect and Reject " with The Democrats in Wales.

Liberty in Wales is obviously " Enslaving Raving Against Misbehaving " towards Justitia in Wales.

There - I told it to you straight - no jokes or comic cryptic cross words - just obvious metaphors.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Four minutes to mid night ... We need a party that is committed to waging - Peace - Justice - Love - Truth ... Life ... " Plaid Y Repwblic " ... " PYR? " ... An Environmentalist Inter-nationalist Pacifist-Pacificator-Pure-Republican Party - The Civic Republican Party in Wales - defending The Peace, Freedom, Culture and Property of All Nations - promoting Human Rights through The Rule of Law - protecting The Lives of The People in Wales and The World - opposing the anti-political systems of The Militarist States of The Democrats in Wales and The World - promoting the pro-political moralities and ethicalities of Republicanism which logically demand Pacifism and Civility - refusing to participate in, subscribe to or endorse the non-political system historically referred to as The " United " Kingdom whose governments - Hierocratic, Monocratic, Aristocratic and now Democratic - have deliberately divided The People in Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland and also The World against each other to control social relationships in order to exploit islands and continents - and to oppose this using a confederation of micro-parties - each defending their own communities - rejecting voting in favour of facts and arguments ...

Republicanisms argue that political power can not be derived from anything but facts about social relationships and arguments about good relationships - Republicans refuse to accept that sectarian private interests can pursued by any other means and these must not be substituted for The Public Interest - De Res Publica - and thus allow private sectarian interests to re-write the laws and reshape the legal system to promote injustice instead of justice : unjust laws are by definition not laws at all - and excluding anybody from the means to obtain a legal remedy from laws which are theoretically just will promote the injustices which lead to in the long term to wars but even in the short term to the destruction of our societies - Republicans argue either that " The Law is Sovereign " or that " Sovereignty is not legitimate because it licences arbitrary behaviours which are unaccountable to The Rule of Law - i.e. Sovereignty is an Ultraism and therefore it can not be compatible with Republicanism which is an Altruism - " Legal Sovereignty " is an oxymoron - those who proclaim Sovereignty - e.g. Democrats - are therefore deliberately placing themselves beyond The Rule of Law and openly declaring themselves to be " licensed criminals " - which is why The People in Rome overthrew the king and defined Sovereignty as a crime - and The Law to be De Res Publica.

which has foisted upon us The National Assembly of Wales with its Neo-Colonial " Welsh " Government - not only devoid of modern constitutional arrangements but empowered to make laws without the scrutiny of an independent judiciary - our laws being determined in the court rooms of another country whose parliament, government and judiciary are not accountable to we the people who will be ruled by these laws : this is utterly abnormal - even the various third world dependencies of The United Kingdom do not accept such external interference in their affairs - other than by its confederate micro-parties - each defending their own communities - campaigning with facts and arguments ?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGpbSZjjGHg = Four Minutes to Midnight

" The Adnyamathanha people of South Australia are currently fighting the destruction of their land on two separate fronts. The government is seriously considering placing a Nuclear Waste Dump on a very sacred women’s place in the Flinders Ranges just 10km from Wilpena Pound. Also a company called Leigh Creek Energy have just been given the go ahead for a gasification test plant at the old Leigh Creek coal mine site, with the plan to expand into a full gasification plant.

Both of these plans would be a total disaster for Adnyamathanha land, culture and spirituality. I found myself in a position of not wanting to have to tell my children that I did nothing to try and stop these disasters from happening, so I looked to a group of women who were a true inspiration to me in my teenage years.

This song is most commonly known as part of the songbook from the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp. The Peace Camp was setup to protest nuclear weapons in 1981 (the year I was born). it was closed in September 1992, after the Cold War ended. The "four minutes to midnight" refers to the Doomsday Clock, and reflects the amount of warning Britain would have should Russia launch a bomb.

I, like the women of Greenham before me, believe that music is a very powerful way of getting a message across, so I decided to perform and upload this particular song in support of the Adnhamathana people and also in remembrance of the amazing things achieved by the women of the Greenham Common."

" Something unexpected happened today ... four minutes after mid day ? "

... mmm ... I felt a little embarrassed and scribbled a while and then having made a hash of the above I decided for bed after a cup of tea and cigarette and ... thus avoid this kind of disclosure ... Machiavelli wrote " The Prince " after he had been tortured and so whilst most people think as a consequence of reading it that he was most probably an evil man - and after all it is apparently one of Tony Blair's favourite books - I think that Machiavelli was a very angry man with a savage sense of humour and that " The Prince " is well in line with the cynical but playful humour displayed in e.g. his plays and poetry ... Few people ever read " The Discourses " which he wrote later in life about Livy ... Machiavelli pursued high ideals with limited means whilst living in a savage society ... If you do not want to live with the grinding anger that I live with - and for very good reasons - try not to care too much - accept that people are cruel and stupid and just join in and try not to care - the way that I do - about the harm done to you and which you do to others - or ... alternatively - if you despair of being unable to change The World for better - consider the extent of any one person's political power - limited but meaningful : change yourself - but do not delude yourself into founding a political party ... as I have apparently finally talked myself into doing today ?

Even Quakers think that I am weird - but after arriving late for worship this morning and pacing up and down the back yard dragging on a fag with a cup of coffee in my hand - this is incidentally considered to be bad form amongst Quakers and alcohol is absolutely banned from the premises - I took a seat in my preferred corner where the Unitarian's hymn books are within reach - they share the building with us now - nice hymns playing up rather more the human and playing down rather less the angels and deities - but found my self thinking about some of the things which have happened in that meeting room ... weddings where we marry ourselves ... babies brought in baskets ... funerals where there have been so many there they could not get in and had to sit on the stairs ... the room virtually empty save for a few faithful friends keeping the meeting together after bitterly divisive arguments ... this meeting has been going since the 1630s ... i.e. it has its origins in an illegal conventicle which predated the official birthdate of Quakerism in 1652 ... ah ... we know a history about that do we not boys and girls ... that I think that the official history of Quakerism is a white wash ... WPS ... black wash ...

... The Official History of The Peace Movement in Wales and The World is not going to be written is it ? ... Or rather it is being re-written by Google right now - stuff is disappearing from searches which I know exists - lots of stuff about Republicanism in Wales - from all factions - is being deliberately wiped off the internet - or is that the Wales Width Web - how do I know this ? - I was in England several months ago - I went into a public library to print out a piece which I had written and its computers automatically presented me with Google.co.uk - and it could not find Y Repwblic ... I was confused until I recognised that it was .co.uk whereas I use Google.com - so I went to The USA - yay ! - The Land of Free Speech and Competitive Anti-Semitism ... I wondered whether it was just a glitch but I suspected that when I got back to Wales Google.co.uk would produce Y Repwblic - I rang around Scotland and Ireland and other parts of Wales and England - Y Repwblic was not appearing in searches outside of South Wales ... Back home ... and - gone from The USA too - I watched this happen in real time over a few hours ...

... I did something stupid - I rang up The South Wales Police and reported that One Of Our Websites Is Missing ... well even Republicans think that I am weird ... " ... And when did you last see your website ? " - " About three o'clock " - " And where did you last see it ? " - " In England - somewhere - I was - " - " Do you not think that it is possible that you lost it over there ? " ... Anyhow - I made a fuss - and ... mmm ... it re-appeared after several hours ... tail wagging - waiting to be fed ... admin files smashed out Rolex said - must have been hacked - look - the index page has been altered to give casual viewers the impression that it is " locked " to keep them out ... I did not know that informe.com were not going to help us - so in the end ... er ... I paid somebody to hack their server in order to retrieve an SQL file for safety ... Then there was or is the problem of finding a new server : lots of companies are uninterested in whether complaints about Y Repwblic are true or false - trouble ? - remove it from our server and do not waste company money or time on it ... Since 2012 a whole load of suspicious things have happened - and not just in the virtual world ... personally - I would blame the government - if I could decide which one - anyway ... enough of this ... at four minutes after mid day - which was yesterday now ... I did something stupid ? ... I decided to bite the bullet - WPS - sorry ! ...

... Democrat bites Republican - not news ? - Republican bites Democrat ? ... I bit the ballot ...

Quakerism is full of eccentrics ... nobody batted an eyelid as far as I could tell ... I reminded my Friends - and few of them are friends because of the way that I think which bewilders them - that I first walked into that meeting room thirty five years ago and rejoiced - " Oh - yes ! - A whole room full of people like me ! " - and ten years later I moaned " Oh - no ? - A whole room full of people like me ? " ... I reminded them of some of the other people who have spent time in this meeting room - watching that clock - asking themselves whether it is The Time to stand up and witness to The Truth and ... I reminded them - although I was not there - that it was in this meeting room in Cardiff Quaker Meeting House - that Ann Pettit and others gathered as " Women For Life On Earth " before they set out with their children and a few husbands in support to walk to Greenham Common : that the political protest that involved hundreds of thousands over more than twenty years arguably began in this room ... I reminded them that they ought to trust me by now and they do know what I have been advocating - " Plaid Y Repwblic."

Well ... this is Wales ... not Apmericka ... I understand that some Cymro-Americaniadd came over a few years ago to sit in his great-grandfather's chapel and the minister was so enthusiastic to actually have a congregation for a change he pulled out all of the stops and delivered a blistering sermon that soared steadily towards heaven to the point where the American revived and suddenly stood up in his pew at the back and hollered out " PRAISE THE LORD !!! - GLORY BE !!! - HALLELUJAH !!! " and then he promptly collapsed back beneath the steely silent glare of the preacher who then shouted back " WE - WILL - HAVE - NONE - OF - THAT - IN - HERE - !!! " ... Possibly he was a Methodist ... This little speech of mine involved a bit of Quaker etiquette - tell other Quakers - briefly - about what you are involving yourself in - lest your Friends wish to advise you - support you - or promptly disown you ... I am not sure which one of those this remark might be classified as ... The Clerk was possibly wishing me good luck in my undertaking of this mad plan - she reminded us all of the Quaker injunction to " live adventurously " and pointed out that the original meaning of this sense of an " adventure " was to put yourself and your wife, children, livestock, merchandise and entire life savings into a leaky ship - with your mother in law being towed behind at some reasonable distance - and then to set off across the ocean without any certain prospect of even surviving let alone thriving and then arriving home for a shriving ...

... Yeah - I know - not weird - crazy ... waiting for The Storm before we embark ? ... C'mon ! ...

Great ... so … what do I do when I am under pressure to do a load of stuff that was not planned for ? … I have written nothing as yet for The Project in PYR - I had a sleepless night and I was not in the mood to write - that part of my brain was asleep apparently - so I got involved in drawing a cartoon - for leisure, for fun - and not even knowing exactly what it was about … well - yes I do - I was drawing the peace out of somebody … So unfortunately it is not even The Cartoon that I can throw casually into The Thread … so I then started to compose an email to the campaign group which might find it useful themselves … not to mention any another charitable group that … er … coercively asked me to do some drawings for them and I could not really exactly say no … but eventually I did manage to say no having first said yes - there are only so many hours in the day and if people want to ring me up to tell me that I have been volunteered by them to do something for them which takes me hours and hours - and all that I get in return is The Brisk Thankyou upon which they spend less time and effort than in filling in their expense claims for thanking me - for dull dull dull drudgery whilst they go off to have fun … No … anyway - talking about " Wye " and " Eye " and " Y " and … You know - " Closed and Open " and " E and U " - and then there is that other problematical thing about " Y " being stuck in the middle of " PYR " and " Plaid Y Repwblic " …

… The Neo-Nazis in Wales and The World think that The Republicans in Wales and The World are using " Y " as some kind of an allusion to The Third Reich in Wales and The World … over my dead body you … mmm … let me rephrase that for you - not on our watch You Butty-Boyo-Bastards : our website down by Year represents The Massed Ranks of The YippY Republicans in Wales and The World and both Marianne and Dai - and even Moritz on The Good Day - will refuse to get off our arses and come and find you - because we can no longer be bothered to try to reason with fools like you - Republicanism is wasted on those who just want a free tin badge or to buy The Y Shirt or wear The Under Pants of The Peace Movement - just in case - so be off with you and your claims that The CND Symbol was used by The SS in wreaths laid upon the coffins of The Glorious Dead of The Third Reich just because some dim-witted Yank said so near bottom of page eleven - on the right - down a bit - further ! - in that newsletter of the 28 September 1970 which was issued by The National Republican Congressional Committee of The United Satanists in America - How on earth do The Fried Corpses in Wales discover such obscure nonsense ? - Have you not got any better things to do with The Times than to go speculating about The Conspiracy Theory - and without even bothering to lift a finger to contribute anything to Y Repwblic ? …

… And what is more - what You keep claiming to be " The Rune of Algiz " is nothing of the sort - yeah - I know : it is quite nice that " Algiz " represents " Life " and then you turn it upside down and it means " Death " - and I know that I have talked about The Thumb in The Open Hand and how on The Right Hand Path of Dexterous Politics it is turned upwards at The End of The Little Rigmarole which starts with The Little Finger on The Right and goes " Truth - Love - Justice - Peace - and - Life ! " - and how we give The Thumb Up Sign when we shout " LIFE ! " - and that I have talked about The Thumb in The Clenched Fist and how on The Left Hand Path of Sinister Politics at The End of The Little Rigmarole which starts with The Little Finger on The Left and goes " Lies - Hatred - Injustice - War - and - Death ! " and then it is turned downwards when we shout " DEATH ! " … but … look … Y RepWblic Yng NghYmru is definitely on The Left from Our Point of View - but of course we appear to be on The Right from Your Point of View …

Subject: Fw: Civic Quakerism - " Endless War Is Not the Answer " - the present lobbying of Congress in The USA by The Friends Committee on National Legislation

Dear Editor of The Friend,

below is an email sent to me from The New Republic - or rather via them - for The Friends Committee on Legislation in The USA. It used to be in The Constitution of The United States that only Congress had the authority to declare war but once they had passed The Authorisation for Use of Military Force in 2001 then The President of The USA could declare war without any proper scrutiny of the reasoning for it by Congress. The very definition of war has arguably been changed by such terms as " Military Operations " of which there have been forty one perpetrated in nineteen countries since The Authorisation in 2001. I would like British Quakers to send messages of support and donations - see - " fcnl.org "

[ 123 words ? ]

The Friends Committee on National Legislation was founded in 1943 and advocates for peace and good government, social and economic justice, and environmental concerns. FCNL consists of two separate but related parts - the Quaker Civic Political Lobby in Washington which advocates for De Res Publica - and the not-for-profit FCNL Educational Fund which provides teaching and training with the object of building relationships across the deepening political divide in American politics to encourage a collaborative rather than majority led approach. This is the Quaker version of the ethos of " Civic Republicanism " which I have been advocating in Wales and now organising for as " Plaid Y Repwblic " which is a collective identity defining a Pacifist-Pacificator " Civic Republican " stance for a confederation of local ward activists' microparties.

[ 127 words ? ]

AND FURTHERMORE - WOULD " THE FRIEND " LIKE TO READ ABOUT WHETHER I SUCCEED OR FAIL IN THIS " MAD PLAN " TO FOUND " PYR " - ?

That email arrived more or less as I wrote the words - " Between Heaven and Earth - how can we advertise " PYR - The Mad Idea " for this year ? " - as a result of re-planning the annual public event " Y Dydd Rhydd " organised by the political bulletin board " Y Repwblic " because after silent worship on Sunday in Cardiff Quaker Meeting House in " Afterwords " I reminded my Friends there that the astoundingly successful Greenham Common protest arguably began in our Meeting Room where " Women For Life on Earth " stayed overnight ( 26-27 ? ) August 1981 before the march from Cardiff to Greenham began in 1981. " PYR " in Welsh conveys various conditional senses such as " why " - " (be)cause " - " since " - and is now our acronym for " Plaid Y Repwblic " which is a " Civic " Republican Party ( i.e. one preaching the values of " Civility " and Citizenship ) whose activities if realised will be akin to those of FCNL. I have been advocating for several years now developing PYR from " Y Repwblic " which was begun in 2007 and whose title was taken from my leaflet " REPWBLIC? " of 2002. PYR is proposed to be the shared confederate identity of a series of microparties to be organised in each council ward in the wake of Brexit. " Y Repwblic " is our political recreation in which we write to entertain ourselves and each other with our crazy creative ways of presenting political issues in " shaggy dragon " stories and poems as well as commentating on both historical and current events. We intend PYR to be explicitly Centrist and promoting local political activism rather than wasting resources in seeking to be elected - indeed I am advocating a rigorous abstentionism in refusing to register parties or electors - and I want it to to have a Pacifist-Pacificator stance like Y Repwblic has developed over the past twelve years. Y Dydd Rhydd will be on the 14th July.

Endless War Is Not the Answer

Dear Friend:

In the next two weeks, the House of Representatives could approve legislation that would revoke the president’s ability to justify open-ended warfare across the world. But Congress will only act if they hear from people like you.

ACT NOW! Tell Congress to stop endless wars and restore Congress’ power to declare war.

Our constitution states that Congress has the sole authority to declare war.
Yet three presidents have claimed that when Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) in 2001, Congress handed its war powers to the president.

This sustained use of our military force is the longest in history – longer than the Civil War, and World Wars I and II combined. Since 2001, U.S. presidents, including Donald Trump, used the AUMF to justify 41 military operations in 19 countries.

An entire generation has grown up not knowing a world at peace. Yet we have proven that endless war is not the answer. Peace is possible.

Help us oppose war and work for peace.

Peace,

" The New Republic " is over a hundred years old and it reflects an enlightened establishment and therefore " Progressive " stance which I would label as a " Liberal Conservative Socialist Republican " sensibility as The Republicans in Wales might see it : I used to buy the paper copies because the articles are often long and interesting and with original art work and good photography - and there are reviews of relevant books and artistic performances ( interesting more usually from an American but not necessarily Welsh perspective.) There are usually topical magazine articles to read online - free for me and I am not sure why but probably because as an ex subscriber I get these regular emails every other day with links to the magazine in them. I have googled articles and read them for free before too.

THAT is the standard which " PYR " ought to be aspiring to - much better than what we do !

Subject: Re: YYYY SENT ME SOME MORE PHOTOS - I stopped taking the lithium cardboardate - I include XXX in this because she asked me to draw a floor plan and I already knew that I was ill

Dear XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX & XXX,

I am going to forward these photos through my XXX emails to give you an idea of how I was prematurely aged by these arguments in Cardiff.

YYYY was studying architecture with me - he introduced me to ZZZZ who was studying civil engineering - ZZZZ introduced me to The Synapse.

The Synapse and The Gap were just part of the flow of these discussion groups which included [ The Cardiff Illuminati ] ( ROTA ) { Praxis } etc

I will leave in parts of these emails so that you can get the gist of where I am presently - fishing around in yet another kind of sewer whilst YYYY -

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acropolis_Museum = YYYY achieves things whilst ZZZZ and Dai are wasting our talents arguing with local councils.

As to my suddenly pulling my finger out to stop idealising about " Plaid Y Repwblic " and realising The Plan on The Fourteenth of July - crazy ?

The Summing Up of Private Interests - is not in The Public Interest -_
Centuries of arguments - can we not agree - upon what is The Best ?_
The Friends of De Res Publica - will always differ - Left, Centre, Right -_
But without The Argument - The Dawn of The Day will lack The Light -_
Because we can not read The Texts - in The Corners which are The Darkest.

( As you can see my problems with Narcissism have now been improved by constant practice on Y Repwblic )

Dear XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX, XXX,

( SOMEBODY TELL ME PLEASE IF THESE PHOTOS ARRIVE ATTACHED - APPARENTLY MY ACCESS TO SERVER IS VARYING GREATLY THIS EVENING )

A BIG CHUNK OF THIS MYSTERIOUSLY DISAPPEARED AND APPARENTLY IT WAS NOT SENT - EVIDENCE OF MY NOT BEING ON THE BALL I THINK.

my apologies for not being in touch on the phone - I stopped taking the lithium cardboardate in order to sharpen my wits to deal with things.

Hence I am experiencing Cyclothymia in the raw for the first time in over a decade - a worthwhile experience to remind my of why I take it ...

But it means that I am all over the place and I include XXX in this because she asked me to draw a floor plan and I already knew that I was ill.

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?p=7179#7179 = written on Sunday afternoon ?

I started to write that omnibus to drum up trade for the 14th July - and it has some good stuff in it - and I took the decision to found " PYR " - !

I made this decision in the Quaker meeting on Sunday - to commit myself I declared " PYR " to them - they have read my proposal and my plan.

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1327 = " PLAID Y REPWBLIC " - ? = A CIVIC REPUBLICAN PARTY - PACIFISTS/PACIFICATORS

But can I execute that plan ? - I can generally anticipate when a bout of Cyclothymia is emerging from the symptoms and so I plan what I can do.

What has just happened with XXX is an example of the kind of problem which led to people praising my work and sacking me afterwards.

It is why I fell gradually into chronic unemployment and end up perpetually on sick benefit - I can not operate within the plans of other people.

YYYY sent me some more photographs of what I looked like whilst I was at university before I dropped out to deal with being " temporarily " ill.

You will recognise the face - but he is a complete stranger to me now ...

Hi Dave,

[ ... XXXX ... ]

The LA museum story wasn't very encouraging. In my experience starchitecture is a bit of a mixed blessing; so often the results are a blight on the surroundings rather than offering anything very useful to the day to day inhabitants. The museum I was working on in - [ NOT IN EUROPE ] - has been seriously damaged by the military taking over the role of the client and meddling with the things they didn't like, to the extent that the main facade has been redesigned by a general to be more in keeping with his ideas!

I found some more pictures of you, also a couple of pictures of ZZZZ. Does she have an email these days? You didn't explain what she was going through at the moment...

All the best,

YYYY

... Not that post-World War Two " Sinn Fein " had nothing to do with " The Troubles " - the original Sinn Fein was much like I propose " Plaid Y Repwblic " to be - " The Civic Republican Party in Ireland " - as we might think of it in 1919 when it won - under Alternative Voting ? - I am scribbling off the top of my head for lack of time - The General Election in ... well ... whose country was it in 1919 ? ... Thousands of The Men in Ireland died in The First World War fighting for a cause as equally unrepresentative of The People in Ireland as died in The Easter Rising in 1916 which was hardly representative of them either ... The Protestant Men in Northern Ireland on returning from WW1 found themselves being proclaimed as patriots and heroes in 1919 - The Catholic Men in Southern Ireland on returning from WW1 found themselves being declaimed as traitors and zeros in 1919 ... The Democrats in Ireland as in The World have ever paid lip-service to The Ideals in Republicanism - yet things were then as they are now - Democracy is a non-political system characterised by Lies and Hatred in order to divide The People and defraud them of The Power in The People by persuading them that The Ballot in The Box is The Power in The Pocket in The Party in The Government - NO !!! ...

... After Sinn Fein divided into Dev's Fianna Fail and - er ... whose Sinn Fein ? ... Could The Real Sinn Fein Please Stand Up ? ... The Non-Political System in Democracy is of based upon divide and rule - using bullets if ballots do not bring you power - and of course once you have seized control of The State by either means you no longer have to do politics - not even in elections ... The Democrats in Sinn Fein - Two ? - Three ? - X ? - Y ? - Z ? - have forever argued over which one of their parties is The Real Successor to - " Sinn Fein Won " - and the answer is surely " None " - except that Sinn Fein One's bank accounts still have money sitting in them from ninety years ago - so if any of them ever wins the war to be Sinn Fein Too there will be plenty of interest ... After Dev declared " The Irish Republic " it looked as if there would finally be a " Sinn Fein None " - bank accounts nearly all zeros - memberships nearly all zeros - representatives nearly all zeros - and that is why - how - when - The Irish Republican Army subverted Sinn Fein to remedy Dev's political failure with bullets as well as ballots ... which is my way of looking at it ... I do not want to mince my words about this - " Plaid Y Repwblic " will be either - The Dai Way to Heaven - or The High Way to Hell - so " PYR " must go The Welsh Way - not The Way of The World - not The Way of The USA - and not losing The Way - as The Republicans in Ireland have - not - quite ...

... The " Whites " in Ireland - " The Civic Republicans in Ireland " - started to finally re-group and get their act together during " The Fianna Failure ( 1959? - 2009? ) " and " The Sin Feigned ( 1959? - 1999? - 2009? ) ... This has barely been noticed by " Plaid Cymru " because of their infatuation with " Fianna Failure " - or by " The Welsh Republicans " because of their infatuation with " Sin Feigned " - but " The Republicans in Wales " began to hear about c1999 - and then to read about it thereafter - because of " The Disaster in The Devolution " by " The Democrats in The National Assembly in Wales " ... It was when we espied ... in " The Wake " of " The Ship of The State in Wales " ..." The Emerging Iceberg " ... that " The Republicans in Wales " began to realise that " The Democrats in Wales and Westminster " were not even aware of " The Holey Thing " ... i.e. ... being " The Democrats in Wales " they are not interested so much in The Politics as in The Power - and think that their ability to tell The Lies and divide The People in The Vote by conducting The Election in Hatred qualifies them to be The Government ... No ...

... No ... " The Power in The People " is " The Facts and Arguments " in " The Life of The People " - I know - I know - I am trying to dodge using those terms " The Nation " - " Our Society " - because they are vacuous ... " The Political System " is " The Decision Making Process " - and The Problem in Wales is The Government in Wales - The Problem in The Political System in Wales - The Problem in The National Assembly in Wales - The Problem in Cardiff City County Council - The Problem in Your Local Community Council - The Problem in Your Life - IS NOT YOU - IT IS ... THE UNITED KINGDOM ... NO ... do not be naive now ... there is nothing wrong with Wrexham just because of its geographical location - The Problem in Wrecksem is because of its political location - which is exactly the same as The Problem in Y Senedd - or indeed any of The Political Communities in Wales - such as WPS ! - The Political Location in - Welsh Political Society ! is - in The Non-Political System in The United Kingdom - which is not geographically located in Great Britain and Northern Ireland at all - but in Halsbury ...

... there are many references to " The Plan " as it developed over the past twelve years ...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But you are " The Republicans in Wales " - not that shoddy has-been outfit " The Welsh Republicans " - and you demand professionalism - not proetry - " The Rules " of " The Game " - indeed - and which game am I proposing as " dai repwblic " - ? ... mmm ... Well - let us briefly look across " The Water " - I mean " The Puddle " not " The Pond " - and consider how The People in Ireland screwed it up and lost " The Republic in Ireland " to " The Irish Republicans " - i.e. - to the conflict between " The Reds " and " The Greens " during The Civil War in The Irish Free State - and then after World War Two when De Valera declared " The Irish Republic " - sentimentalising Nationalist nonsense akin to declaring that " God is Irish " - and - oh - yeah - Dev did that too - he planted The Catholic Church in Ireland into The Constitution in The " Irish " Republic thus confirming all of The Fears in The Protestants in Northern Ireland as expressed in their 19c slogan " Home Rule Means Rome Rule " and therefore whilst constantly bleating on about a " United Ireland " Fianna Fail sundered The People in Ireland from each other and set up The People in Northern Ireland for what then became euphemistically called " The Troubles." ...

... Not that post-World War Two " Sinn Fein " had nothing to do with " The Troubles " - the original Sinn Fein was much like I propose " Plaid Y Repwblic " to be - " The Civic Republican Party in Ireland " - as we might think of it in 1919 when it won - under Alternative Voting ? - I am scribbling off the top of my head for lack of time - The General Election in ... well ... whose country was it in 1919 ? ... Thousands of The Men in Ireland died in The First World War fighting for a cause as equally unrepresentative of The People in Ireland as died in The Easter Rising in 1916 which was hardly representative of them either ... The Protestant Men in Northern Ireland on returning from WW1 found themselves being proclaimed as patriots and heroes in 1919 - The Catholic Men in Southern Ireland on returning from WW1 found themselves being declaimed as traitors and zeros in 1919 ... The Democrats in Ireland as in The World have ever paid lip-service to The Ideals in Republicanism - yet things were then as they are now - Democracy is a non-political system characterised by Lies and Hatred in order to divide The People and defraud them of The Power in The People by persuading them that The Ballot in The Box is The Power in The Pocket in The Party in The Government - NO !!! ...

The Problem in Ireland in 1919 - in The IRA - in trying to fight their way out of - The Paper Bag.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Problem in Wales in 2019 - for " PYR " - is in trying to find our way out of - The Plastic Bag.

Centuries of Non-Politics - errors in copying mistakes - The United Kingdom - is - in - The Law.

" Sovereignty " in " The Rules " in " The Game " in " The Parliament " in " The United Kingdom "

The Definition in Republicanism of " The Rule of Law " is " The Law applies equally to everyone."

The Definition of " The Rule of Law " in The United Kingdom is " The Law is Ruled in Parliament."

For example - The Human Rights Act 1998 explicitly states that it can be ignored by Parliament.

Moritz is a Republican who cites " The Golden Rule : those who have The Gold - make The Rule."

" Hierocracy is " Sovereignty of Cognition " - Democracy is " Sovereignty of Emotion."

" Aristocracy is " Sovereignty of Sensation " - Monocracy is " Sovereignty of (Re)Action."

Few have read many Republicanisms - " Sovereignty of Law " is an oxymoron - it is cheating.

Sovereignties are " special laws " which except some people from The Rule of Law e.g. police.

Sovereignties are " legal crimes " - Republicanism defines unjust laws to not be laws but crimes.

The Law is our agreed morality and ethics - The Law is our agreed definition of De Res Publica.

The Law is of no use to anyone if they can not avail themselves of Justice in The Legal System.

The Law applies equally to everyone so there can be no charge for Justice in The Legal System.

Well ... you now have the gist of it - Republicanisms are all arguments about making The Rules.

The Republicans in Wales will want to know " The Rules " of " The Game " in " Plaid Y Repwblic "

Otherwise - and I know many of them will not - The Republicans in Wales will not play - " PYR "

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I suppose that I had better research some model rules from some suitably authoritative text ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastille_Day

" Y Dydd Rhydd " is " The Bastille Day in Wales " - but not because of what The Democrats in Paris do with it - nationalistic speeches, militaristic parades - and fantastic fireworks - etc - but what The Republicans in France do with it - convivial conversations, sociable promenades - and popular picnics - etc ... " Bastille Day " - as American and English Republicans call it is - NOT - " The Anniversary of The Storming of The Bastille in 1789 " - BUT - " The Anniversary of The Picnic in The Park in 1790 " - OK ? - and the reason why we should sink our political differences and go over to Caerphilly to celebrate " Y Dydd Rhydd " at - The David Williams Memorial - and mumble " Yr Undeb Rhwngwladol " before sociably promenading over to The Court House pub to sink a pint - or two - is because David Williams was - The Triw Welsch Man - in Paris in 1792 - The Citizen in The Republic in France and The World - invited there as The Celebrated Political Philosopher-Journalist by The Republicans in The French Revolution - The Girondins - which prior to 1792 was being celebrated as being a remarkably peaceable one in contrast to The American Revolution in 1776 ... David Williams was The Draughtsman in 1792 - of - The Rights of Man and Citizen ... which was suppressed to enable The Red Terror by - The Democrats in France ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%AAte_de_la_F%C3%A9d%C3%A9ration

... The Republicans in France were so grateful to The King in France in 1790 for being nice and reasonable - that they gave him - The Party ! ... The Democrats in France were not invited and decided that this was not a proper Revolution at all - political picnics ? - so they threw a tantrum and chopped off The King's Head - The Queen's Head - The Republican's Heads - Each Other's Heads ... Democracy - eh ? - Perhaps we can not live without them - but can we be certain of even managing to stay alive with them ? ... Whilst The Red Terror in Paris piled up The Corpses in France - The Young Republican - Girondin - Charlotte Corday made her way to The Author in The Blood Bath - Jean-Paul Marat - and assassinated him in The Hope in Hell that a single act of violence could end The Civil War in France - and bring an end to The War in Europe - but - of course - War is not The Remedy for War ... Democracy is not The Remedy for Democracy ... Peace is The Remedy for War ... Republicanism is The Remedy for Democracy ... Murder may well be the most sincerest form of political criticism - and War may be the most effective form of political education - but chopping off The Heads of The Republicans heads did not change The Minds of The People - The Republicans in France overthrew The Democrats in Paris and restored The Rule of Law - in - The White Terror ... and The Whites fought The Reds after The Russian Revolution in 1917 ... and so on ... ad infinitum ? ... why ? ... since ? ... (be)cause ? ... PYR ? ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte_Corday = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Paul_Marat

Republicanism is - The Best Thing Since Sliced Head - which of course - in - 1793-1794 - was - Democracy - (be)cause - chopping - off - heads - does - not -change - The Minds of The People !

Dear XXXX,

I suppose that you might know somebody who would like to go to a picnic commemorating Jo Cox MP and the charity founded in her name - this awkward email has a big white space in it which I presume is where the flyer was displayed - there is a pdf link at the bottom of it to two versions of it. Why send you this ? Well - arguably Jo Cox died as a result of far right extremism ?

Dear XXXX,

I do not think that you really need to read this - but you might want to know about this ?

Perhaps I ought to tell you about one of few things which have happened to me over the years - Dafydd and I used to enjoy going to odd fringe religious and political meetings - basically for sport - we rarely do it in recent years but we went to a Yes Cymru meeting several months ago in order to ask awkward questions. Yes Cymru seem to be attracting extreme Nationalists and my criticism of them is contained in the poem below. One of the odd things about these Right Wing Extremist " Nationalist " Republican fringe groups is that they are simultaneously excited by The IDF - not to mention The IRA - yet express a casual Anti-Semitism ... Dafydd, Marianne and myself are deemed Left Wing Extremists by many - although de facto we have differing positions just Left-of-Centre and are rather conventional but disaffected towards the political system for differing personal reasons.

[ AND NOW - FOUR WEEKS LATER - I HAVE THE URGE TO TWEAK " OES CYMRU ? " - AGAIN ]

" Oes Cymru ? " - think that they have ' The Plan ! ' - which ' Y Repwblic ' deems insane -_
" Na Cymry ! " - we have to prepare - ' The Constitution ! ' - so please let us now explain -_
If " Oes " were truly caring for - " The Welsh Nation ? " - then how could they believe that right_
To have been so irresponsible - by giving you - ' The People in Wales ' - this - as such a fright -_
Openly declaring - " We will then design - Democratically ! - ' The Parachute ! ' - but only after - you - have jumped out of - ' The Plain ! ' "

dai repwblic = Dai Saw = David B Lawrence - The Author - asserts - The Moral Right - not to sue for - The Copyright !

We are deeply adverse to militarism and I got into an argument with some people who appeared to be endorsing that sort of thing in one of these meetings several years ago - people who know that I criticise The IDF* and object to The IRA etc - and Marianne and Dafydd hurried me out of the pub afterwards before it erupted again because behind my back - whilst I was at the bar - some of those who had witnessed me arguing with one of their ' leaders ' - YYYYYY - decided to sing a jolly little song about stuffing Jews into gas chambers ... I want to point out that YYYYYY himself had stepped into the argument which began when his wife XXXXX shook the bucket at me and I refused to contribute and when I privately explained why she got upset and then - there were several groups besides ours ( Y Repwblic ) and theirs ( Balchder Cymru - but infiltrated by Neo-Nazis or tolerating them as followers ) - I upset everybody by taking a stand and denouncing the appearance of the meeting endorsing political violence ... YYYYYY came to me afterwards to object to the allegation - and found himself warning off some Neo-Nazi who wanted to start a fight !

[ *I trust The IDF more than The Knesset - I admire Breaking The Silence as Pacificators ]

After we left the pub I had to mollify YYYYYY by going to talk to XXXXXX who was sitting in their car in tears convinced that I had called her a terrorist or terrorist sympathiser - they are both honest decent law abiding people who hold very extreme Nationalist viewpoints : at the time XXXXXX was a councillor elected for Plaid Cymru and they run a small cleaning business I believe whilst at this time they were organisers for Balchder Cymru whom Plaid Cymru have publicly dissociated themselves from ... Balchder Cymru - aside from their occasional claims to be " Republicans " which offend us because they equate it with a sort of super-patriotism - are very nice people and it bewilders us how they ever got mixed up with Neo-Nazis - which they strongly deny - and so Marianne later had an argument with YYYYYY about this incident - which he denied - on some website of theirs ... From our point of view there are hooligans who are in pursuit of opportunities to start a fight - they have no political views - their idea of " Republicans " is created by the press and media - or rather they will profess any political views, support any football club, if they can start a fight on that pretext ... Therefore we have firmly branded " Plaid Y Repwblic " as Pacifist-Pacificator ... a Left Wing example of this behaviour occurred at Greenham Common - with tens of thousands turning up to protest and the excuse of a foreign military to " fight " - so The Women in Greenham Common banned men - because it generally is young men ...

This makes my political life sound eventful - thankfully it is not - I am just The Scribbler !

Regards,

David B Lawrence

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INSERTED : AN HISTORICAL EXPLANATION OF THE CHARTISTS' ADVOCACY OF THE SECRET BALLOT

- and The Choirs in Wales ... and that last comment is truly triw too ... the introduction of competitive carolling was The Revolution in Wales in 1848 ... actually what happened was that after The Black Legion had surrendered in 1797 and then The Blood Baths in Wales in 1801 and 1831 and 1839 ... The " White " Leaders in 1848 - upon hearing of The Fifth Attempt in Fifty Years - summoned The Meeting in Pontypridd ... they led The Long March in The Carriage to The Rocking Stone - gave The " Red " and The " Green " Leaders The Real Bollocking and threatened to demonstrate what it meant to be The Pacificators in Wales in 1848 ... with a rare martial arts performance by The Very Silent Order Sect who clearly made a sophisticated demonstration of The Ancient Martial Art of The Open Hand - whilst The Very Very Loud Trappist and Shunters Methodistical Order danced around them in The Charming Circle of Trust - covertly making The Sign of The Pacificators to The Democrats in The South Wales Valleys - with The White Staves in Wales ... " Slaves or Staves ? " may well have been their Ancient Peace Cry ... honestly - something like this really was The Scene in Pontypridd in 1848 ...
The White Staves in Wales were The Symbol in " White " Republicanism - but that symbol was brought back from The American Revolution in 1776 ... The Stewards in The Demonstration carried them - to Pacificate both The People and The Police Officers - and whoever else was singing out of tune ...

... These were The Days in Chartism when The History in The Politics in Wales was Written in Blood - not only were Welshmen - inevitably men, none of that Transexualised Poofy Lesbian Nonsense in Nineteenth Century Wales - bloody minded after trudging through The Rain in Wales to hear poncy " Whites " preaching Peaceful Protest from The Carriages in Wales - they treated fighting as sport : The Election in Carmarthen was notorious - The Electorate in Wales consisted solely of The Householders in Wales who met a certain financial threshold yet made decisions on behalf of The Poor in Wales who had no votes but plenty of opinions ... The Rule of Law in Carmarthen was entrusted to a dozen elderly constables - " The Carmarthen Shilling " - and " The Bobbies " could not possibly control the thousands who poured in for The Free Beer in The Election which they deemed their due ... The Vote in The Early Nineteenth Century in Wales was conducted in The Public Place where The Speeches in The Hustings were inevitably scored by The Panel of Poets and Pontificators for Cynghanedd, Content and Corruption - and once The Candidates in The Election were escorted safely back inside The Town Hall - The Voters in The Crowd came forward to VERBALLY declare The Vote ...

... If The Voters did not win the approval of The Crowds in Carmarthen all hell could break loose ... typically " The Reds " fought " The Blues " in this period and The Carmarthen Shilling were totally outnumbered and struggled to protect The Electorate in The Crowd to escort them home again - fighting was practised in The Pubs in The Town until The Beer in Carmarthen was all drunk - at which point - having just been warming themselves up - The Non Voters in The Streets would on occasions not only break The Windows in The Houses of The Electorate but either break in through them to challenge The Voters in Bed to debate their decisions - or just pull their houses down ... It was this kind of thing which resulted in The Pacificators in Demonstrations carrying The White Staves in Wales - to reach into The Crowds in Wales and whack The Naughty Ones in The Civilised Way ...

... In The Rebecca Riots of The 1840s The Crowds in Carmarthenshire assembled by night - with blackened faces to camouflage themselves - bringing axes, hammers and guns to hack down The Toll Gates and demolish The Toll Houses to re-establish The Open Road ... The Chartists in The Newport Rising in 1839 carried pikes to fend off The Cavalry in The Army - pistols and guns to return the fire of The Soldiers and Constables in Wales because of The Massacre of The Innocents in Merthyr in 1831 - and hammers to demolish " The British Bastilles " - to rescue The People in Poverty in The Workhouses ... The Crowd in Bristol fought The Constabulary and The Soldiery for The Three Days - behind The Barricades in Bristow - and between them they left The City in Flames ... and even with The Ballot in Secret - this still goes on ... because The United Kingdom is The Non-Political System of The Pocket Picked in Party Politicking ...

I might add to that observation that Dr William Price may have originated The Mad Plan to plant " Y Repwblic " in the middle of Y Faner CYmrY - that the United Republican " Red White Green " tricolours and tribands - which were being carried by and seized from demonstrators all over Britain and Wales - is I argue to be dated from 1792 when La Tricoloure Francais was still ordered " Red White Blue," when " Blue " was the colour of " Liberty " in the form of the uniforms of The USA and therefore implied armed insurrection to effect a revolution so the British replaced it with the traditional " Wearing of The Green " of The Democrats in Europe. The Green Cockade was - or rather evergreens like ivy were - planted originally in the button holes of the rioters at The Bastille on The Fourteenth of July 1789 - and in Britain in the 1790s the order " Red White Green " was being touted as " The House of Lords in Peace with The House of Commons " - whereas in Ireland ( Meagher ? ) in 1848 substituted Orange for Red to signify " The Protestants in Peace with The Catholics " and then in 1916 that order became " Green White Orange " because reversing the order meant " The Republic in Ireland is in Distress " ... anyhow ... The Cis-Alpine Republic first adopted " The Roman Colours " in imitation of The Tricolour in France - then Napoleon made his elder brother The King in Italy and he used it - then Napoleon sent him off to Spain - from where he fled to The USA - where The People in Mexico approached him asking him to lead a revolt under " his " flag - ordered " Green White Red " and he refused - but that is why Mexico's flag is like Italy's flag ... anyhow ...

... Is it not curious this argument that Dr William Price having spent time in Paris in exile after the 1839 Newport Rising [ in which ( John Rees ? " The Man from The Alamo " ) also took part who had been in Mexico fighting for Texas ] being an autodidact of Welsh history came up with this scam - pretending to celebrate Henry Tudor as a Welsh hero carrying " Y Ddraig Goch " which just happens to be - when ordered into bands or stripes according to The Rules in Heraldry as a livery flag - the equivalent of a tricolour or triband that is " Red White Green " - " The Roman Colours " which identified The Three Tribes in The Republic in Ancient Rome ? ... In other words - and what a bad piece of writing is being hammered out here before I go to bed - " Y Ddraig Goch " can be argued to contain punning references both to " Athens " i.e. to " Democracy " - in " The Dragon " = " Drako " or " The Draconian Law " - and to " Rome " - in " The Roman Colours " which were the " Red White Green " of SPQR and The Legions in Rome ? ...

... In other words The Authorities in The United Kingdom really hated " Y Ddraig Goch " because they knew that it was merely a pretence to " The Loyalty in Wales to The Monarchy " to prevent them from seizing a flag which was blatantly proclaiming " The Democratic Republic in Wales." The boon of the innovation was that before such flags could be printed and had to be sewn or painted they were very difficult to make - hence the " White " Republicans - The Educated White Collar Professionals - Lawyers, Academics and Doctors etc could keep their Republican flags out of the hands of the rioters who quickly make a new Triband or Tricolour after theirs had been seized by The Magistrates in Wales = convincing ? ... Given the fact that Yr Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau was denied the status of The National Anthem of Wales in 19c Wales and you could be arrested for singing it because only " God Save The Queen " and " God Save The Prince of Wales " were legal - but that the crafty Cymry took their National Eisteddfod to London one year and conned The Prince of Wales into standing up - because everybody else was standing up to sing it - because he did not know that it was a subversive and illegal song planted into The Eisteddfod in London - they won a wonderfully crafty coup which had the equerries silently screaming behind The Prince of Wales that he was legitimating Republicanism !

No - this was not a good piece of writing - but I can not be bothered to chop it up and punctuate it properly at gone 01.00 am in the morning ...

Dear Established Parties,

it is about time that somebody tried once again to re-establish " Civic Republicanism " - personally I wish that you would all promote " Civility."

" Civility " is the posh word for " Citizenship " - what a state funded education should be creating in our kids : not clever slaves - but dull citizens.

... I could have phrased that a bit better ... if you care to examine this long screed - called an omnibus - you will find several good jokes this year.

http://www.roerich.org/roerich-pact.php = SYMBOL OF THE ROERICH PEACE TREATY = THE UNITED KINGDOM HAS STILL NOT SIGNED IT ...

"Pax Cultura" ("Cultural Peace" or "Peace through Culture") is the motto of the cultural artifact protection movement founded by Nicholas Roerich, and is symbolized by a maroon on white emblem consisting of three solid circles in a surrounding circle. On April 15, 1935 the Roerich Pact was signed by the United States and Latin American nations, agreeing that "historic monuments, museums, scientific, artistic, educational and cultural institutions" should be protected both in times of peace and war, and identified by their flying a distinctive flag, the Banner of Peace, bearing the Pax Cultura emblem.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banner_of_Peace

The banner of peace is a symbol of the Roerich Pact. This pact is the first international treaty dedicated to the protection of artistic and scientific institutions and historical monuments.[1] It was signed on April 15, 1935. The banner of peace was proposed by Nicholas Roerich for an international pact for the protection of culture values.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roerich_Pact

The Treaty on the Protection of Artistic and Scientific Institutions and Historic Monuments or Roerich Pact is an inter-American treaty. The most important idea of the Roerich Pact is the legal recognition that the defense of cultural objects is more important than the use or destruction of that culture for military purposes, and the protection of culture always has precedence over any military necessity.

WHERE THE ANARCHIST " A " IN A CIRCLE COMES FROM = THE REPUBLICAN Δ BECAME MASON'S TOOL - TO " LEVEL " and " SQUARE " SOCIETY

THE INTERNATIONAL BRIGADES WHICH DEFENDED THE SPANISH REPUBLIC = Δ RE-SHAPED AS A TRIANGULAR STAR = TETRAHEDRAL CALTRAP ?

THE ROMAN TOGA AND SPANISH REPUBLICAN TRIBAND USED DARKER SHADES OF " PURPLE " THAN THE RGB 255-000-255 OF " Y REPWBLIC " TO DENOTE " CIVILITY " AND " CITIZENSHIP " IN THE ROMAN AND SPANISH REPUBLICS

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Workingmen%27s_Association

The International Workingmen's Association (IWA), often called the First International (1864–1876), was an international organisation which aimed at uniting a variety of different left-wing socialist, communist[1] and anarchist groups and trade unions that were based on the working class and class struggle. It was founded in 1864 in a workmen's meeting held in St. Martin's Hall, London. Its first congress was held in 1866 in Geneva.

In Europe, a period of harsh reaction followed the widespread Revolutions of 1848. The next major phase of revolutionary activity began almost twenty years later with the founding of the IWA in 1864. At its peak, the IWA reported having 8 million members[2] while police reported 5 million.[3] In 1872, it split in two over conflicts between statist and anarchist factions and dissolved in 1876. The Second International was founded in 1889.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco = Draco is the Latin word for serpent or dragon = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco_(lawgiver)

Δ - Greek: Δράκων, Drakōn = Y Ddraig Goch is a visual pun alluding to " Draconian Law " - or - " Athens / Democracy " ?

Draco was the first democratic legislator, requested by the Athenian citizens to be a lawgiver for the city-state, but the citizens were fully unaware that Draco would establish laws characterized by their harshness. To this day, the adjective draconian (Greek: δρακόντειος) refers to similarly unforgiving rules or laws, in Greek, English and other European languages ... The laws (θεσμοί - thesmoi) that he laid were the first written constitution of Athens. So that no one would be unaware of them, they were posted on wooden tablets (ἄξονες - axones), where they were preserved for almost two centuries on steles of the shape of three-sided pyramids (κύρβεις - kyrbeis). The tablets were called axones, perhaps because they could be pivoted along the pyramid's axis to read any side.

The constitution featured several major innovations:

Instead of oral laws known to a special class, arbitrarily applied and interpreted, all laws were written, thus being made known to all literate citizens (who could appeal to the Areopagus for injustices): "the constitution formed under Draco, when the first code of laws was drawn up". (Aristotle: Athenian Constitution, Part 5, Section 41)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draconian_constitution

The Draconian constitution, or Draco's code, was a written law code created by Draco near the end of the 7th century BC in response to the unjust interpretation and modification of oral law by Athenian aristocrats.[4] With most societies in Greece codifying basic law during the mid-seventh century BC,[5] Athenian oral law was manipulated by the aristocracy[6] until the emergence of Draco's code. Around 621 BC the people of Athens commissioned Draco to devise a written law code and constitution, giving him the title of the first legislator of Athens. The literate could read the code at a central location accessible to anyone. This enactment of a rule of law was an early manifestation of Athenian democracy.

Δ = The Greek Letter " Delta " appears a lot in Republican symbolism - e.g. look at steep sides of The Unfinished Pyramid

Triangles, Pyramids, Hives etc in Republicanism symbolise " Y Repwblic " ( " Earth " ) Circles, Spheres, Armillaries etc " The World " ( " Heaven " )

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Welsh Republicans have been playing with Red, White, Green triangles - stacked up ? - so I have played too - to create a few other allusions.

The White Triangle is inferred and together with a dot of The Roerich " Pax Cultura " Symbol it resembles the 19c Republican symbol " The Eye "

The Draconian Tetrahedron is seen from above - but the normal depiction Δ is inverted - this is a way of saying " The Rule of Law is in distress "

Alternatively this is The International Triangle within The Circle but the normal depiction Δ is inverted - " The Republic in The World in distress."

The Red on The Left and The Green on The Right Triangles can be read as an arrowhead - " DOWN WITH WAR ! " ? - or as V or semaphore's *U

V for - Victory ? - or Two Fingers Up to The United Kingdom ? - or V as The Peace Gesture with Two Fingers Palm Forwards ? - or a cartoon man ?

Surrender ? ... \o/ ... " YippY ! " ? - " Yippies " inverted The C Nuclear D symbol to create The C *Universal D symbol - semaphore *U looks like Y.

Universal Disarmament resulting from Peace through Justice is the ultimate objective of Internationalist Pacifist-Pacificator Republican parties.

The Roerich Symbol was probably derived from " The Republic in The World " Symbol - The Three Dots instead of The Triangle / Tetrahedron ?

I think that the graphics are looking good - but what to say ? ... Can they print or photocopy leaflets as big as A0 ? ... I hate using too few words.

I ... er ... am still awake ... stupidly checked some messages having left a note for somebody that I had not communicated with for eight months ... harassment ? ... Which planet are such people living on ? ... I dropped them a line giving them some links to a subject that they write upon - and as a sort of olive branch : they were most definitely in the wrong - an energetic person and someone who could be usefully applied as a focused hard worker - yet like so many others almost hysterical when they discover that other people are not like themselves ... which is a problem which I am thinking about in conceptualising how a network of micro-parties could operate together to promote The Public Discourse ... The Mad Plan ? ... Well everybody else is insane in the way that so many people conceptualise their own differences from others - perhaps especially those who have elaborated their neuroses into psychoses which explain their own defects in terms of everybody else being " wrong " ... The kinds of bullying deceitful manipulative behaviours found in so many communities of interest reflect the dysfunctionalities of our society which are both expressed in and perpetrated by The Non-Political System in The United Kingdom which results in The Public Interest being defined as The Sum Total of The Private Interests - actually a myth - but even if that were truly how it works - which it is not - the result - logically - would be that everybody's conflicting private interests would cancel each other out ... as if I want fish and chips and you want faggots and peas and ... we both starve because these supposedly are equivalents which contradict each other and cancel each other out ... mad ...

... It is The Rule of Non-Politics that proposals which differ from what already exists are denounced as mad - impractical - ill-considered - experimental ... ah ... well - yes : all political decisions should be treated as experiments - this is The Weakness in The Republicanisms in The Closed Ideologies which simply explain themselves to themselves without reference to reality - and when The Realities in The World impinge upon them they declare that The Reality is in The Wrong and that it is " revolutionary " to coerce others to agree that The Ideality is in The Right - ideologies which constantly explain why their demands are Realistic because The Will in The Hierocracy reasons it to be so ... but " Reasonable " decisions are grounded within Rationalities - within our personal experiences, oriented towards our individual concerns which result from our emotional responses to Wales and The World ... which in itself as a pat little shibboleth contains the very problems which I am trying to describe ... We can not escape The Problems in Political Systems - we can only be aware of them and deal with them ... we need to be advised ... we need to seek out advice ... either from The Experts in Wales or from The Collective in Wales - Fascism and Socialism conceptualise The Problems in Politics differently ... which bunch of Fascists should I go to to get advice about my setting up The Republican Register and then persuading others to join it and thus create these PYR microparties : who can give me The Right Political Advice in Wales ?

Tory leadership race : Who will be the next prime minister ?

" Five Conservative MPs are still in the race to be the next Tory leader and prime minister. ... Boris Johnson came top in the second ballot on Tuesday with 126 votes. ... But Dominic Raab failed to win enough votes and was eliminated. ... Ballots continue on Wednesday and Thursday this week until two candidates remain, when members of the wider Conservative Party will then get a chance to vote for their preferred choice. ... Boris Johnson - Jeremy Hunt - Michael Gove - Said Jarvid - Rory Stewart - Dominic Raab ... "

... So - The Prime Minister is about to be selected ... not elected ... when The Conservative and Unionist Party ought to be going to The People in The Electorate - not me, remember please that although my name has been placed on The Electoral Register I have refused to subscribe my name to this farce - that The Torys in Toytown are throwing a tantrum again because The Music Stops in The Madness in Bullsxit stopped and everybody has had to give up ... The Chair ... and run around trying to find The ( new ) One before The Music Starts in The Madness in The Badness in The United Kingdom as a non-political system not based upon The Facts in The Arguments but The Fantasies in The Arrangements ...

Teenage neo-Nazis jailed over terror offences

Two teenage neo-Nazis, who encouraged an attack on Prince Harry for marrying a woman of mixed race, have been jailed for terrorism offences. ... Michal Szewczuk, 19, from Leeds, and Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18, from west London, were part of a group called the Sonnenkrieg Division. ... An Old Bailey judge said their online propaganda was abhorrent and criminal. ... Dunn-Koczorowski was given an 18-month detention and training order. Szewczuk was jailed for just over four years. ... ... ... [ ... NINETEEN ... EIGHTEEN ... ] ... ... ... The court heard the teenagers used pseudonyms to run personal accounts on the Gab social media site, as well as sharing control of the Sonnenkrieg Division's own page, on which they posted self-designed propaganda that encouraged terrorist attacks. ... Among other things, the imagery suggested the Duke of Sussex was a "race traitor" who should be shot, glorified the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, and said white women who date non-white men should be hanged. ... The material was " uniformly violent and threatening " and " the nature of the violence includes rape and execution," Judge Rebecca Poulet QC said."

... I am torn between being disgusted by their obnoxious behaviour and disgusted by the obnoxious behaviour of The Society in The United Kingdom and The Republic of Ireland which spawns such uncivilised unhappy unhinged ... well - technically they are now adults I suppose ... Think about this in terms of The People in The Establishment - for want of a better common terminology - being delinquent parents : can you understand this ? ... The Infantile Adult is the result of The Infantile Politics in The Political Families of Britain and Ireland ... You know this sort of parent - everybody rushes to sympathise with them about their being distressed by The Dysfunctional Children because nobody thinks straight : they are The Parents ... they are not The Victims ... they are The Abusers - that is why The Children are like this - like The Parents ... This is The Dysfunctional Family which propagates its dysfunctionalities generation by generation - and propagandises to itself that these ways of behaving are inevitable and normal ... yes - inevitable and normal in The Dysfunctional Family ... and The Dysfunctional Society ... where The Parents deny their responsibilities ...

" ... She said the men had promoted both Sonnenkrieg and the American Atomwaffen Division, which were extreme right-wing groups inspired by a book called Siege written by the veteran American neo-Nazi James Mason in the 1980s ... Their ideology is violently racist and anti-Semitic neo-Nazism and its tactics involve political violence through acting alone or small-cell terrorism, she added ... She condemned an " additional feature " of the ideology by referencing a blog run by Szewczuk that encouraged the rape of female adults and babies ... ... The court heard Sonnenkrieg was influenced by the US-based group Atomwaffen Division, which is linked to five murders, and Mason, whose writings " may well represent the most violent, revolutionary and potentially terroristic expression of right-wing extremism current today." ... ... " You must become a machine of terror," Szewczuk had advised his readers ... ... Sonnenkrieg promoted the idea that people should completely " drop out " of society and engage in a " total attack " on the system Ms Parsons told the court ... She said Szewczuk also maintained an " extremely violent and aggressively misogynistic " blog that encouraged the rape, torture and murder of women and babies ... "

... mmm ... Whilst I know that comparisons to World War Two might be now considered to be out of place and tasteless - what about Winston Churchill and Harry Truman ? ... Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler were not only ones to become " machines of terror " or to preside over - and indeed encourage - the rape, torture and murder of women and babies - they all proclaimed " total war " - they all preached racial hatred - these are The Ideas in The Military Mind : The Conscripts in Vietnam - on both sides - were deliberately brutalised into hating " The Enemy " who were dehumanised to the point where The Army in America was instructing its troops to kill pregnant women - always the slowest to run away or who remained with The Infants in The Villages - because even The Unborn Child is The Enemy ... The Unkown - The Unborn Enemy ? ... If you met somebody talking like that without a uniform on you would be reaching for The Phone to ring The Police ... " 101 - you have dialled - The South Wales Police - how can we help you today ? ... Really ? ... He said what ? ... Oh ... do not worry - we know him - PC99 ! "

A conversation by text with Sovren Cymru led to this potential change of plan ...

https://www.yes.cymru/contact

Dear Yes Cymru,

I invite Yes Cymru to participate in Y Dydd Rhydd - 8pm 14-07-19 - David Williams Memorial, Caerphilly.

You received an email from me recently stating that despite our affinities in our conceptualisation of our organisations Y Repwblic ( YR ) - now proposed seventeen years later after the publication of the leaflet " REPWBLIC? " to further evolve into " Plaid Y Repwblic " ( PYR ) - would still not endorse Yes Cymru ( YC ) because it has not adopted any detailed constitutional proposals which - regardless of any proposals for independence, inter-dependence or continued dependence from The United Kingdom - is the essential issue for us in re-establishing the ethos of Civic Republicanism in Wales which historically was so strong.

I am writing an " omnibus " for Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 - http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1550

I wanted to cite from - https://thesovereigner.net/ = the new project from = https://sovereignwales.com

YR and Sovereign Wales / Cymru Sovren ( CS ) have just had a brief exchange of texts about YDR 2019 - that we could use it this year to stage a debate - YR's Centre Left Internationalism - V - SW/CS's Centre Right Nationalism - or rather - given the casual way of Y Dydd Rhydd - a conversation in The Court House. Y Dydd Rhydd was conceived as " The Day Off " from factionalism in favour of The Picnic in The Park - but de facto we now rendezvous at the monument besides the Gorsedd stones and then swiftly go to the pub. I ought to mention that buried in this year's omnibus is the following notice of these other Picnics in The Parks.

https://www.greatgettogether.org/find/ = PICNICS ON 21-23 JUNE - IN MEMORY OF JO COX MP

I will write a revised proposal for Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 and circulate it to various groups later this evening.

... mmm ... I guess that I decided to seize an opportunity to explain Republicanism in Wales ... I wrote YesCymru a reasonably length of email ... it ended with a bit of architectural folklore about Richard Rogers' design for The National Assembly for Wales' second bunker - Y Senedd - which seemed like a good pretext to write a second time to all of the Assembly Members ... only the minute that my thoughts turned to them - and a very long running argument about their ( illegal ) interpretation of The Building Regulations - and my mood grew gloomy ... eventually I put that email aside and went to bed and when I got up this morning actually it did not seem so aggressive - and I softened the opening of it a bit with the " MAX VOICE " gag to show willing ... but I did not send it - why ? ... Well - it is sort of just a protest song with every line ending with the refrain - " Democracy ? " - good for me to offload with ... not of much interest to any of them because they are not really being asked for anything concrete besides - " HEY ! - I AM ROUNDLY ABUSING YOU - WHY WILL YOU NOT LISTEN TO ME ??? " ... not useful ...

... except perhaps within this thread - and also I thought of sending it to over to Yes Cymru to communicate the kinds of emotions which are driving me towards doing " PYR " ... never misunderstimulate The Emotions in Politicos ... which led to my setting out some arguments for Yes Cymru and Sovereign Wales in the hope that they will grasp what I am talking about which is likely to be a really alien psychology from their point of view ... I was quite happy with the result - packed with useful information - a lot cut of it and pasted in from above this post on this thread so they can get the gist of the proposal ... a short series of concise arguments ... I zapped it down into Ariel Narrow 10 in Word and it was a mere twenty seven pages - well I always work each weekend so why should not they ? ... >sigh< ... No wonder Wales is in a permanently popular political prolapse with this kind of lack of commitment about reading other people's emails ... on the other hand I suppose that email does make it so much easier ... no hanging around for months waiting for The Scribes in Medieval Wales to scrape and cure The Parchment - inscribe it - illuminate it - submit it to The Editor ...

... scrape it off again ... resubmit ... scrape ... resubmit ... scrape ... resubmit ... scrape ... die of plague ... resubmit ... starve to death ... resubmit ... writing he-males required lifetimes back then ...

Dear Yes Cymu - Dear Sovren Cymru / Sovereign Wales,

[ SC/SW ARE USED TO MY EXPLAINING REPUBLICANISM ]

I wrote the following email in the early hours - and left it in draught as too angry - I may yet send it - but understand what drives me to do PYR.

Ignorantly, accidentally, casually or deliberately - I find that - " The Democrats in Wales " - are breaking laws - and leaving others to sue them ...

... apparently large sums of money are wasted in out of court settlements with those who can afford to sue them ... most are too poor to sue ...

... I am talking here from personal experience - of decades of arguments with council and company lawyers who advise their clients to do this ...

Without a legal system in which the policies and laws being made in Wales and Westminster can be questioned and enforced - politics is futile !

---------------------------------

The United Kingdom is a " non-political system " - designed to frustrate not facilitate political solutions - it is not merely archaic - it is abnormal.

The Law is the agreed definition of morality and ethics in - normal political systems - therefore The Law is the description of The Public Interest.

The United Kingdom, The Crown, The Parliament, The National Assembly in Wales etc are created by The Law - they can not exist outside of it !

But they all contrive to do so by citing " Sovereignties " - laws which excuse accountability to The Law - and therefore destroy - The Rule of Law.

---------------------------------

The Rule of Law and " Sovereignty " can not co-exist - The Rule of Law defends The People in The World - from The Governments in The World.

The Rule of Law does not exist in Wales - because The Governments in The United Kingdom all cite " Sovereignty " - in order to break The Law.

The Public Interest in The Rule of Law can not be reconciled to The Governments who make The Law being excused accountability to The Law.

The Public Interest in The Rule of Law requires The Legal System in Wales to be publicly funded so that we can sue The Government in Wales.

---------------------------------

It is ridiculous that The Government in Wales makes The Law in Wales but refuses to have The Court in Wales lest The People in Wales sue it.

It is offensive that The National Assembly in Wales are leaving The People in Wales to sue them whilst controlling The Legal System in Wales.

The Republicans in Wales argue for The Rule of Law - The Democrats in Wales argue for The Rule of Law - for The People in Wales - not NAW !

The People in Wales need a normal political system - in which The Rule of Law defends The Public Interest in The Law with The Legal System.

--------------------------------

I try writing these kinds of formulations of arguments to make clear my reasoning for proposing campaigns such as " Plaid Y Repwblic " - " PYR "

Yours Sincerely,

David B Lawrence = Dai Saw = dai repwblic

All Members of The National Assembly for Wales, Cardiff Bay CARDIFF CF99 1NA - Tel

Dear Assembly Members -

" I am an entertainer - " - " - MAX VOICE - " - " - not that I am biased ! " - READ AS MUCH AS YOU WISH - BUT PAY ATTENTION TO THIS PLEASE

I was going to draw to your attention last night to the following email - lest you are unaware of the political symbols planted within Y Senedd ?

I did not anticipate ever writing to you all again collectively in the forseeable future - because I did not foresee my writing the following email !

I have been fed up with the present prejudices towards The Republicans in Wales for a long time - especially when held by Assembly Members.

I forward the following email to you - as a further attempt to remove those prejudices - but at the risk of bewildering and alarming you - why ?

I think that it is good practice to either meet or make a phone call before commencing any correspondence - especially with paranoid politicos.

I would prefer to believe that you are paranoid - but actually I know that The Republicans in Wales are being subjected to systematic prejudice.

The Queen does not behave this way. The Prime Ministers do not behave this way - nor do foreign Commissioners, Ambassadors - Presidents !

Only my own representatives - Officers, Councillors, AMs, MPs - IN WALES - ONLY - IN WALES - behave this way - and always have - IN WALES !

If you did not behave this way - would I then have any need to write such emails or to advocate - " MAX VOICE " - " The Incredible Plan " ?

Republicanism is The Remedy - Democracy is The Disease !

David B Lawrence = Dai Saw = dai repwblic

-------------------------------------------------------

I want The Democrats in Wales to recognise The Republicans in Wales as legitimate participants in The Political System in Wales - Democracy ?

I am now fifty seven - I made my first contribution to The Political System when I was fifteen - I now oppose it - I do not accept - Democracy ?

I never accepted voting as the basis of politics - either in electing representatives or in deciding decisions - but now I despise - Democracy ?

------------------------------------------------------

I always voted prior to The Electoral Registration Act 2013 - I regarded it as The Duty in Citizenship - now my duty is to oppose - Democracy ?

I have been patiently waiting for answers to my correspondence about The Electoral Registration Act 2013 - for over five years - Democracy ?

I will not agree to my name being subscribed to The Electoral Register as if I am endorsing The Political System that I object to - Democracy ?

-----------------------------------------------------

I refused to endorse The Political System after The Electoral Registration Act 2013 for various reasons - religious and political - Democracy ?

I will not endorse The Political System - because I am - Republican ? - No - because The Political System excludes Republicans - Democracy ?

I will not kiss the sole of the boot that has been stamping on my face for over forty years - which refuses to cease abusing me - Democracy ?

-----------------------------------------------------

I do not believe in Democracy because I know from experience that even when it is conducted honestly - it is still fraudulent - Democracy ?

I refuse to endorse The Political System - I am going to create " PYR " for the purpose of persuading others to not endorse it - Democracy ?

I intend to expose The Non-Political System in Democracy by publicly comparing Republicanism to The Non-Political System in - Democracy ?

-----------------------------------------------------

I may have bewildered and alarmed you - perhaps you do not understand ? - I think that you do understand - but profit from - Democracy ?

I refuse to endorse you - even though I correspond with you - and you should correspond with me - but refuse to endorse me - Democracy ?

The Political System in Republicanism would receive an email like this with alarm and bewilderment - and reply with concern - Democracy ?

Dear Yes Cymru,

We rarely do speeches in front of The David Williams Memorial - it is our rendezvous for our social - for Conversations with Wales' Republicans : anybody can come - and Y Repwblic have invited Sovereign Wales to debate " PYR " - and it provides an opportunity for Yes Cymru - and others ?

Thank you for acknowledging my message - sent via your online form - I said that I would write to you that evening - 18-06-19 - but I delayed it.

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1309

= The Birmingham Rules ( 1869) club rules used by both The Brotherhood and The League.

The delay was caused by my hesitating over adding text to the leaflet / flyer / souvenir that I was preparing for Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 because of my reconsidering its purpose which is to distribute " The Plan " for Plaid Y Repwblic which is basically The Birmingham Rules ( 1869 ) updated.

The leaflet / flyer / souvenir contains something which " Yes Cymru " might like to use - " GIFT " - this tessalation of a red " Y " upon green which creates a sort of network with ribbon like stripes running diagonally across it which I was not anticipating - I intended it to suggest " The Hive."

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1550

= I am writing a long omnibus - something for everybody - to advertise Y Dydd Rhydd 2019.

What we write on Y Repwblic is intended to portray The Republicans in Wales - it was intended to portray what Gethin Gruffydd started to scorn as " Rainbow Republicanism " but we refer to as " White " because " all colours together make White - except Black i.e. non-political behaviour."

Y Repwblic has effectively become the online presence of what I have sometimes dubbed the " Yippy Republicans " as we were in the 1980s - Marianne, Dafydd, Dai - and others - have had a long association with various discussion groups - Daf founded " The Cardiff Illuminati " in 1984.

Marianne and Dai have written on Y Repwblic - " Conversations with Wales' Republicans - Poblachiaethwyr - Repwbligwyr - Gweriniaethwyr " - Dafydd sometimes - for twelve years - Marianne ? - " I was queuing in The Post Office when " - Dai ? - " The Treason Felony Act of 1848 was " ...

We are arguably middle to low brow - but we want conventional " Civic Republicanism " re-established in Wales - by explaining it as often as not with jokes, poems, shaggy-dragon-stories, cartoons etc - but we are always addressing serious issues - and write bits about theory, history etc.

Y Dydd Rhydd was intended to be " The Summer Event " - " The Free Day " - not a rally but a picnic on - " The Sunny Day " - and recreating once a year in reality what we do on Y Repwblic every day in ideality - and inviting anybody who wishes to come along and have The Conversation - ?

Y Dydd Rhydd is a sort of AGM - but very casual - and basically we meet at The David Williams Memorial - which is arguably a memorial to The History of Republicanism in Wales - to sing - The International - " Cofiwn Yr Achos " - around 8pm 14th July every year - and then go to the pub.

I usually try to provide a souvenir about whatever has been proposed as the topic of The Conversation - the topic that has emerged for 2019 is - because I decided " Something Must Be Done " - " PYR? " - " Why? " - " Cause? " - " Since? " - " pa'hyr " - forever discussed - " Plaid Y Repwblic."

Which decision emerged from its incubation here =

http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1327

= " [ - ] " - " PLAID Y REPWBLIC " - ?

" The Plan " in " Plaid Y Repwblic " is radically different to " The Wish List " which I have described as " Yes Cymru " - so I replied " Na Cymry ! " - this has been done before in The 1970s - " Plaid Y Repwblic " is a response to - and exploits - the failure of " The Non-Political System in Wales."

" The Plan " in " Plaid Y Rewblic " is to reject " The Wish Lists " of " The Democrats in Wales " - and create a radically different " parallel political system " - based upon - " The Open Conspiracy " - where " Plaid Y Repwblic " has but " The One Wish " - microparties which promote " Civility."

" Plaid Y Repwblic " could now break The Deadlock in The Democratic Non-Political System in Wales - by turning it into - The Republican Political System in Wales - not by overthrowing The Government in Wales - but by recreating politics as facts and arguments not votes and governments.

The Non-Political System in Wales is commonly perceived to have failed because of non-participation - The Democrats in Wales - have to agree that they have no mandate from The People in Wales - less than 50% vote - less than 17% of The Votes in Wales elect The Government in Wales.

The Democrats in Wales are debating their plan - to punish The Electorate in Wales for not giving them a mandate - for not voting for them - as they already punish The Register Resisters - for refusing to endorse their non-political system - with harassment, fines and prison for Abstention.

The Republicans in Ireland practice Abstention in a contradictory way - endorsing The Non-Political System in The United Kingdom by registering Parties - registering Electors - registering Votes - and then not participating - PYR would participate with facts and arguments - but not register !

... " The Mad Plan " ... but I think that this is the way to re-establish The Republicanisms in Wales - by creating a " parallel political system " - like The Chartists' National Assembly of The 1840s - in which microparties disagree ideologically but agree to campaign for The Republic in Wales ...

The Argument in PYR - is that The Political System in Republicanism is conceptualised as an information processing system - The United Kingdom is a non-political system which refuses to process information - that votes are not information and therefore Democracy is not a political system.

The Argument in PYR - is that political activism is conducted by collecting facts, constructing arguments and corresponding with other persons - not necessarily in The Governments in The United Kingdom - therefore we can create a " parallel political system " to promote political activism.

The Argument in PYR - is that microparties with opposing objectives can still be allied together - for the purposes of displacing The Non-Political Systems in Wales and replacing them with The Political Systems in Republicanism - if they collectively understand The Public Interest in The Law.

The Argument in PYR - is that The Rule of Law does not allow The Non-Principle of " Sovereignty " - i.e. no law can be made that licences social relationships that are not accountable to The Law - but equally The Public Interest does not licence The Rule of Law in consenting relationships.

The Argument in PYR - is that The Public Interest in The Rule of Law demands that no law can be made concerning private interests - especially the relationships within individuals which they consent to : no laws can be made that licence non-consenting relationships within individuals.

Yes Cymru - I know that last paragraph may seem cryptic, obscure or mystic : the preoccupation in Republicanism is with The Rule of Law - not getting rid of The Queen - because it is supposed to be indifferent to both Left and Right politics but instead provide the means to do politics ...

Yes Cymru - politics is a collective pursuit - but whilst The Plan in PYR is my proposal as an individual - I studied the problem this is my solution - the creation of PYR can only be realised collectively - by realising that what I propose is to collectively do what political activists individually do.

But that collectivity can not be realised without our pursuing politics together - by collecting facts, constructing arguments and corresponding with other persons - " Plaid Y Repwblic " is " The Plan " - " Yes Cymru " is " The Wish List " - together they could become a jam jar with jam in it.

We rarely do speeches in front of The David Williams Memorial - it is our rendezvous for our social - for Conversations with Wales' Republicans : anybody can come - and Y Repwblic have invited Sovereign Wales to debate " PYR " - and it provides an opportunity for Yes Cymru - and others ?

Yes Cymru - I have come back to re-read this before I send it - and I can imagine that you might imagine that " The Mad Plan " will not work - Na Cymry - this has been done before - Yes Cymru - The Chartists' National Conventions and Assemblies did it - Na Cymry - you are thinking of NAW.

Richard Rogers wrote The Obituary for " My Comrade " in SAC - Brian Anson ARC ( Architects' Revolutionary Council ) - and designed Y Senedd !

https://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/home/brian-anson-1935-2009/5212234.article

Brian Anson - 26th March 1935 - 22nd November 2009

" A great friend, leader and teacher, Brian [ Anson ] was one of a tiny handful of heroes I have had the good fortune to know. We exchanged letters regularly over the years – he was a marvellous correspondent – about everything from political horrors to daily life, and we met to talk whenever we could. I shall miss the long discussions over many a beer in dark pubs, discussing the ways of the world and plotting the next revolution. Brian, more than anyone, taught me to understand those who suffered indignities at the hands of our society."

Go down to The National Assembly for Wales one day - look at it from a distance : a weather vane that looks suspiciously like - The Phrygian Cap ? - Go down to Yr Siambr and look down : The Circle ? - Go up to Yr Oriel and look up : The Cone ? - Y Rhyddid - Y Byd - Yn Y Repwblic = Y Senedd

Richard Rogers apparently planted many other Republican symbols into The Architecture in Y Senedd - e.g. The Glass Box = Transparent Politics !

I like to believe that Richard Rogers wanted The Ideals that he symbolised in The Architecture in Y Senedd to become The Realities in - The End ?

Since I was reminiscing about Brian Anson to a friend in an email I went looking for some web pages to show her and I found myself reading a blog page about his grave in Ireland so I left the guy this sketch of my first encounter with Brian Anson - the occasion on which he ceased to be my hero and became a friend - when he was simultaneously aggravating and hilarious ...

https://seamussweeney.wordpress.com/2018/04/03/brian-anson-a-revolutionary-for-social-justice-buried-in-magheragallon-cemetery-gweedore-donegal/comment-page-1/?unapproved=6557&moderation-hash=b46a553a292e1e3ba52521aef39e998c#comment-6557

Thank you for posting this - I have just been reminiscing about Brian and trying to explain him in an email.

I was the student representative for Wales and The West to The Schools of Architecture Council when we were contesting against ARCUK and RIBA as well as Thatcher because they were willing to implement her demand to simply close down eight schools of architecture - basically The RIBA targeted those schools which were in weak political positions within their universities and colleges - hence I met Brian Anson when he became the chairman of SAC. The consequence however was that outraged heads of schools stopped paying their subs to SAC - I was called in to explain myself as to why I thought that I represented my school of architecture at The RIBA - I pointed out that I represented eight bodies of students whose courses were about to be ended in the middle of their seven year education and how were they going to be placed with courses elsewhere. I did not know how controversial Brian was - personally I still very much agree with his point of view - and even at the time people were saying that Brian would be the subject of somebody's PhD forty years or so on. The reason why Brian was unpopular at that time 1980-1984 ( when I was involved ) was because of a series of essays which were published in The Architects Journal the year following Thatcher's election. I keep meaning to re-read these some day - I can not find a link for you - Hellman was our hero too -

http://www.louishellman.co.uk/ = https://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/news/culture/celebrating-50-years-of-aj-cartoonist-hellman/10026269.article = LOUIS OFTEN NAILED THE INSANITY OF THE UK IN THE 1980s

Thatcher began to slash all of the public building programmes and thus local authority architects were sacked en masse - thus my career prospects were blighted because I had no middle class social connections to be introduced to anyone to get a job - and community architecture was devastated - yet Brian was about the only architect not wringing his hands pathetically and demanded that we unite and fight - and he was right ... But we are but made of clay and we got squashed flat - I think that this period is what set in motion the series of events in Brian's life which took him off to Ireland and then to other places ... Certainly Brian had feet of clay - I worshipped him for - ooh - a while - until we were waiting for him to give a speech to open the International Student Architects' Workshop event in Liverpool in 1981 - about a week after the riots with the piles of rubble still smoking - he was late - staggered in drunk - denounced Thatcher - demanded a revolution ... I am falling about laughing at this as I write - but there were all these European Student Architects - some of whom were utterly unaware of the riots until they arrived - looking very pale whilst the famous respectable intellectual they had come to hear lecture them delivered a terrorising political polemic - which ended with " UP THE RA !!! "

I pretty much have to use everything that I write - constructing an omnibus - I used what I wrote for you later in the evening and slapped it into the bottom of that post - and shared it with a couple of others - one bitterly dismissive reply - people want to forget 1981 in The UK and move on - but things are much the same as they were in " The Non-Political System " that I have dubbed it - Brian was saying the same sorts of things to me when I was a student representative in Schools of Architecture Council fighting The Royal Institute of Building Anything ( for money ) - The Architects Revolutionary Council were I think over the top - and " Marxists " but that is The Architectural Association for you - but I still pretty much share the same views as Brian - only back then it was as a starry eyed student enjoying The Republican Rhetoric about ARC fighting for The People etc - since then I also found myself defending my own community against Cardiff Bay Develoment Corporation - the same experience that The People in London described - but in Wales investment was never forthcoming and twenty years after it was wound up we are still trying to raise the wreck - the whole community is still submerged at the bottom of a ocean of misery - unemployment, poverty, drugs, prostitution etc - now getting progressively worse year by year with many pale scabby homeless people sleeping in doorways in the city centre, begging, harassing and threatening etc ... I deal with a lot of stressful stuff - by joking on Y Repwblic !

Community architecture is effectively dead and the housing cooperatives are dying because big businessmen discovered rivers of cash flowing into housing associations from Y Senedd which chose to bail out the property developers bankrupted in the slump ten years or so ago instead of investing in social housing - crazy or what ? - The last time that I was in Eire I was looking around at the emerging boom in property there and pondering what was driving it - and wishing that our builders are as good as yours - from what I understand of it the chronic property inflation in England - and London is the epicentre of this - is being driven by The Russian Mafia laundering the proceeds of organised crime - you think Ireland has a problem with half-built spec-built empty houses ? - In London the poor are sleeping on the streets next to mansions standing empty and rotting - some of them important historical buildings - waiting to be sold on to the next " speculator " in the chains of sales which launder the roubles into dollars, punds and euros ... Brian must be furious - but then he is probably plotting to overthrow God and establish The Republic in Heaven - whilst demanding to know why the angels are on zero hour contracts and reminiscing about how The Nectar tastes better in Ireland etc etc ... anyhow - if you care to - have a read of my left of centre " YippY Republican " shaggy dragon stories etc ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revanchism

Revanchism ( French: Revanchisme, from revanche, " revenge " ) is the political manifestation of the will to reverse territorial losses incurred by a country, often following a war or social movement. As a term, Revanchism originated in 1870s France in the aftermath of The Franco-Prussian War among The Nationalists in France who wanted to avenge the French defeat and reclaim the lost territories of Alsace-Lorraine.

Revanchism draws its strength from patriotic and retributionist thought and is often motivated by economic or geo-political factors. Extreme revanchist ideologues often represent a hawkish stance, suggesting that their desired objectives can be achieved through the positive outcome of another war. It is linked with Irredentism, the conception that a part of the cultural and ethnic nation remains " unredeemed " outside the borders of its appropriate nation state. Revanchist politics often rely on The Identification of The Nation with The Nation State, often mobilizing deep-rooted sentiments of ethnic nationalism, claiming territories outside the state where members of the ethnic group live, while using heavy-handed nationalism to mobilize support for these aims. Revanchist justifications are often presented as based on ancient or even autochthonous occupation of a territory since " time immemorial," an assertion that is usually inextricably involved in Revanchism and Irredentism, justifying them in the eyes of their proponents.

[ YOU WILL SEE WHY I THOUGHT ABOUT DREYFUS = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreyfus_affair ]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_Ernest_Boulanger

Georges Ernest Jean-Marie Boulanger ( 29 April 1837 – 30 September 1891 ) nicknamed Général Revanche, was a French general and politician.

An enormously popular public figure during the Third Republic, he won a series of elections and was feared to be powerful enough to establish himself as dictator at the zenith of his popularity in January 1889. His base of support was the working districts of Paris and other cities, plus rural traditionalist Catholics and royalists. He promoted an aggressive nationalism, known as Revanchism, which opposed Germany and called for the defeat of the Franco-Prussian War ( 1870–71 ) to be avenged.

The elections of September 1889 marked a decisive defeat for the Boulangists. Changes in the electoral laws prevented Boulanger from running in multiple constituencies and the aggressive opposition of the established government, combined with Boulanger's self-imposed exile, contributed to a rapid decline of the movement. The decline of Boulanger severely undermined the political strength of the conservative and royalist elements of French political life; they would not recover strength until the establishment of the Vichy regime in 1940. The defeat of the Boulangists ushered in a period of political dominance by the Opportunist Republicans.

Academics have attributed the failure of the movement to Boulanger's own weaknesses. Despite his charisma, he lacked coolness, consistency, and decisiveness; he was a mediocre leader who lacked vision and courage. He was never able to unite the disparate elements, ranging from the far left to the far right, that formed the base of his support. He was able, however, to frighten Republicans and force them to reorganize and strengthen their solidarity in opposition to him.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moderate_Republicans_(France)

The Moderate Republicans were a large political group active from the birth of the French Second Republic ( 1848 ) to the collapse of the Second French Empire ( 1870 ) ... Originally, the Moderate Republicans was a group of politicians, writers and journalists close to the newspaper Le National. After the February Revolution of 1848, they became the official majority group in the Provisional Government led by Louis-Eugène Cavaignac, François Arago and Dupont de l'Eure that became the official head of the government. Reputed to be the winners of the 1848 Constituent Assembly election, the Moderate Republicans were strategically allied to The Mountain, the left-wing group, against the monarchists. ... During this time, the Moderate Republicans were also divided in two groups, namely The Sleeping Republicans ( active until the February Revolution ) and The Morning-after Republicans that opportunistically endorsed the new regime. These last were The Legitimists who hated The Orléanists July Monarchy and the Catholics who suffered until the Louis Philippe I's restrictions. After the 1848 election, the Moderate Republicans became the majority in the National Assembly, but this group was composed mainly of Morning-after Republicans with a temporary union

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opportunist_Republicans

The Moderates or Moderate Republicans ( French: Républicains modérés,) pejoratively labeled Opportunist Republicans ( French: Républicains opportunistes,) were a French political group active in the late 19th century during the Third French Republic. The leaders of the group included Jules Ferry, Jules Grévy, Henri Wallon and René Waldeck-Rousseau. ... Although they were considered leftist at the time, the Opportunists progressively evolved into a centre-right, law and order and vaguely anti-labour political party. During their existence, the Moderate Republicans were present in the French Parliament first under the name of Republican Left ( French: Gauche républicaine ) and after a fusion with radical republicans as the Democratic Union ( French: Union démocratique ). ... They were further divided into the National Republican Association ( French: Association Nationale Républicaine ) and the Liberal Republican Union ( French: Union Libérale Républicaine ) in 1888 and 1889, respectively.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_Republicans_(France)

The Progressive Republicans ( French: Républicains Progressistes ) were a parliamentary group in France active during the late 19th century during the French Third Republic. ... The group was formed in 1889 after a split from the Opportunist Republicans majority and constituted the parliamentary right-wing after the monarchists' decline during the end of the century. ... The Progressive Republicans were later reunited into the Liberal Republican Union ( French: Union Libérale Républicaine ). ... Depicting Boulanger as " a new Napoleon," the party claimed an agreement between Moderate Republicans and anti-Bonapartist monarchists reminiscent of the 1863 legislative election. The Liberal Union started to depict itself as " liberal and unswervingly conservative," opposing the imposition of an income tax and separation of church and state and after fractures inside the Boulangist movement became the party of farmers, Catholics, bankers, industrialists, lawyers and journalists.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Federation

The Republican Federation ( French: Fédération Républicaine, FR ) was the largest conservative party during the French Third Republic, gathering together the liberal Orléanists rallied to The Republic. ... Founded in November 1903, the party competed with the more secular and centrist Alliance Démocratique ( Democratic Alliance.) Later, most deputies of The Fédération Républicaine and of Action Libérale ( which included Catholics rallied to the Republic ) joined The Entente Républicaine Démocratique right-wing parliamentary group. ... The Republican Federation was founded in November 1903 to gather the right-wing of The Moderate Republicans ( also known as The Opportunists ) who opposed both Pierre Waldeck Rousseau's Bloc des Gauches ( The Left-wing Block,) his alliance with The Radical-Socialist Party and for some of them the defense of the Jewish officer Alfred Dreyfus. The Conservative Republicans were ideologically indebted to Jules Méline, Alexandre Ribot, Jean Casimir-Perier or Charles Dupuy. They represented The Republican Bourgeoisie, closely connected to business circles and opposed to social reform. Furthermore, they were fond of a relative decentralisation, thus enrolling themselves in the legacy of The Girondins of The First French Revolution of 1789 ...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Republicans in Wales in The 1790s in Paris - i.e. David Williams, James Tilly Mathews, Helen Maria Williams etc and several others within The People of Wales in Paris - were allies and associates of The Girondins, Brissot and Condorcet etc - and they were involved in The Public Discourses in Paris and London about The Constitution of The First Republican Democracy in 1792 ... before The Dream ended - when The War in Europe and The World began ... because in La Place de la Révolution - 21 January 1793 - The Democrats in France executed - The King in France - whilst denouncing The Republicans in France who opposed this - and did The Republicans in Wales and The World - which provided the excuse for - The War of The First Coalition - which then induced The Paranoia - because The First Republic in France was attacked by The Enemies Within and Without - which resulted in - The Red Terror - which resulted in - The Thermidorian Reaction - 27 July 1794 - which resulted in - The White Terror ... The Theory of Terrorism in France in 1793 was that it is The Means to The Ends for The State - to create - " Political Authority " - by suspending - The Rule of Law - to create - " Sovereignty " - as practised in ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girondin_constitutional_project

In the exposition of the principles and motives behind the constitutional scheme that he reads before the National Convention, Condorcet begins, as a true mathematician, by a description of " The Problem to Solve "

" To give to a territory of twenty-seven thousand square leagues, inhabited by twenty-five million individuals, a constitution which, being founded solely on the principles of reason and justice, insures to citizens the fullest enjoyment of their rights; to combine the parts of this constitution, so that the necessity of obedience to the laws, the submission of individual wills to The General Will, allow the subsistence in all their extent, of the sovereignty of the people, equality among citizens, and the exercise of natural liberty, such is the problem that we had to solve."

The Republicans in Wales in Paris in 1789 were NOT involved in this ( we think )

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girondins

The Girondins (French: [ʒiʁɔ̃dɛ̃]), Girondists or Gironde were members of a loosely knit political faction during the French Revolution. From 1791 to 1793, the Girondins were active in the Legislative Assembly and the National Convention. Together with the Montagnards, they initially were part of The Jacobin Movement. They campaigned for the end of the monarchy, but then resisted the spiraling momentum of the Revolution, which caused a conflict with the more radical Montagnards. They dominated the movement until their fall in the insurrection of 31 May – 2 June 1793, which resulted in the domination of The Montagnards and The Purge and The Mass Execution of The Girondins. This event is considered to mark The Beginning of the Reign of Terror.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Republican_Alliance

The Democratic Alliance ( French: Alliance Démocratique, AD ) originally called Democratic Republican Alliance ( French: Alliance Républicaine Démocratique, ARD ) was a French political party created in 1901 by followers of Léon Gambetta such as Raymond Poincaré, who would be president of the Council in the 1920s. The party was at first conceived by members of The Radical Socialist Party tied to the business world who united themselves in May 1901 along with many moderates as gathering centre-left liberals and Opportunist Republicans ( Gambetta and the like.) However, after World War I and the parliamentary disappearance of monarchists and Bonapartists it quickly became the main centre-right party of the Third Republic. It was part of The National Bloc right-wing coalition which won the elections after the end of the war. The ARD successively took the name Parti Républicain Démocratique ( Democratic Republican Party, PRD ) and then Parti Républicain Démocratique et Social ( Social and Republican Democratic Party ) before becoming again the AD. ... Under the Third Republic, the majority of the AD's deputies sat in The Left Republicans ( Républicain de Gauche ) group, the main centre-right parliamentary formation ( due to a particularity called Sinistrisme right-wing politicians have for a very long time refused to admit belonging to the right-wing as the Republic was traditionally associated with the left-wing and the right-wing with monarchists such as the Legitimists or the Orléanists.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rally_of_Republican_Lefts

The Rally of Republican Lefts ( Rassemblement des Gauches Républicaines RGR ) was an electoral alliance during the French Fourth Republic composed of The Radical Party, The Independent Radicals, The Democratic and Socialist Union of the Resistance ( UDSR ) and several conservative groups. Headed by Jean-Paul David, founder of the anti-Communist movement Paix et Liberté ( Peace and Freedom ) it was in fact a right-of-center conservative coalition, which presented candidates to the June 1946, November 1946, and 1951 legislative elections. ... Despite its name, the coalition was on the right wing of French politics; for a long time, The French Republican Right has refused to call itself " Right " since the right-wing in France has historically been associated with monarchism ( this practice is known as Sinistrisme.) It was subsidised by French employers, who saw in it the best defense against Communism and the defender of economic liberalism, in a context marked by various nationalizations supported by The French Communist Party ( PCF,) The French Section of the Workers' International ( SFIO ) and The Gaullist Movement. Employers conceived the RGR as such until at least the 1951 creation of The National Centre of Independents and Peasants ( CNIP ) gathering independent conservative deputies. During the 1956 legislative campaign, it became a political party led by Edgar Faure and Radicals who refused to join The Republican Front coalition.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_Front_(France)

The Republican Front was The French Center-Left Coalition which won the 1956 legislative election. In the context of the Algerian War, behind Pierre Mendès-France, it gathered The French Section of the Workers' International (SFIO), The Radical Party, The Democratic and Socialist Union of the Resistance and The National Centre of Social Republicans which came from a split of The Gaullist Movement. ... The leader of the SFIO, Guy Mollet became President of the Council. His tenure was the longest of any Premier during the unstable French Fourth Republic. But his harsh policy in Algeria caused a division in the coalition and the resignation of Pierre Mendès-France and of some ministers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Centre_of_Social_Republicans

The National Centre of Social Republicans ( Centre national des républicains sociaux, CNRS ) was The French Gaullist Party founded in 1954. Its president was Jacques Chaban-Delmas. It ceased to exist in 1958.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_for_the_New_Republic

The Union for the New Republic ( French: L'Union pour la nouvelle République, UNR,) was a French political party founded on 1 October 1958 that supported Prime Minister Charles de Gaulle in the 1958 elections. ... The UNR won 206 of 579 seats in the November 1958 elections. ... In 1962, the UNR grouped with the Gaullist Democratic Union of Labour ( French: Union Démocratique du Travail, UDT ) to form The UNR-UDT. They won 233 seats out of 482, slightly less than an absolute majority. 35 Independent Republicans boosted their support ... In 1967, UNR candidates ran under the title Union of Democrats for the Fifth Republic ( Union des Démocrates pour la VeRépublique, UD-Ve ), winning 200 out of 486 seats. ... The UNR was renamed The Union for the Defense of the Republic in 1968, and later The Union of Democrats for the Republic in 1971.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinistrisme

Sinistrisme ( French: [sinistʁism] ) is a neologism invented by political scientist Albert Thibaudet in Les idées politiques de la France (1932) to explain the evolution and recombination of party systems without substantial changes occurring to party ideology. ... Thibaudet saw that, over time, issues that previously had not been politicised would emerge, drawing public concern and stimulating a demand for political action. A new political movement would form to champion the new concerns, and this would send repercussions throughout the existing political system. The old party of the left would be split, with some accepting the new issues as legitimate, agreeing to cooperate with the newcomers and adapting their ideology accordingly. Others on the existing left would double down on their existing ideas, refusing change: without having changed their ideas, they would end up pushed de facto one space to the right, and end up as the new centre. Meanwhile, The Old Party of The Centre would be pushed to The Centre-Right, and so on. As for the very far right, over time the issues of social conservation that motivated them would gradually lose their appeal, and as old issues died off space would be freed up for the old right to become The New Far Right.

Subject: FW: Poem depicting both the courage and futility of " The Patriotists with Pitchforks " in The Battle of Saint Fagans 1648

Dear Friends of The People in Wales and The World ...

duh - what happened in this email ? - This looks weird to me now ... I sent it to this email via the phone ... let me fix the appearance of it ...

A day or so after I first thought of this I found myself thinking about Gethin Gruffydd on - The High Horse - tilting at - The Windmill - with - The Pitchfork - Y ? - Well perhaps this time I have written - The Right Note - and - The Pitchfork - will finally resonate with me - on the other hand I am pitching so much into this Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 thread that it may well be that I have finally turned into " The Pitchfork in Gethin " - Y ? - But not in The Way that he or Pedr thought they might turn me - Y ? - Do you know that there was once The Mad 17c Plan to unite The Reds - supporters of The King in England - with The Greens - supporters of The Parliament in London - with The Whites - who refused to take sides but asserted that they would defend themselves if attacked - when Rowland Laugharne led - The Free Welsh Army - uniting Cavaliers with Roundheads - in The Last Battle of The Second Civil War - The Last Time - that any " Welsh " army fought any " English " army - in 1648 ? [ IN THE TEXT I PUT " 1649 ? " - MIS-REMEMBERED ]

Patriots with Pitchforks

The Peaceable Army - in Wales - in Sixteen Forty Five - began refusing orders - and so raised up Y Faner Wen_

Declaring to King Charles The First - " We will not wage war - in England - but here is Cardiff's cash ! " - and then_

The Free Welsh Army - in Sixteen Forty Eight - marched along to join them - and They All Stood on The Line_

In - The Blood Soaked Fields - beyond - Saint Fagans - they faced - The Ironsides - Our Kine ?_

Patriots with pitchforks - against cavalry - guns and cannons - and they gave up their lives - for Thine ?

dai repwblic = Dai Saw = David B Lawrence - The Author - asserts - The Moral Right - not to sue for - The Copyright !

A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT THAT PROEM - I OFTEN COMPOST THESE WHEN I GO FOR A LIMP - E.G. SITTING ON A WALL TO REST

I fiddled with the rythm e.g. preferring " cannons " to " cannon " to make a kind of cynghanedd " ts ks ns ns es " and changed " - for thine. " to " for thine ? " and much later to " - for Thine ? " - to slant the meaning of the poem - " intimacy. " - " doubt ? " - " YOU ? "

" Patriots with pitchforks " came to mind because I was near Cathays - " Cadaes " ? - " Battle ( of The Gardens/ ) Fields " ? - c1800 ? - and then later when I was snagging it I found myself laughing about Gethin - he must have sent me so many of those " pitchfork " things that perhaps the image entered my mind and became entwined with " Y " somewhere along The Way - I am laughing right now - have I accidentally and mysteriously stuck Cofiwn's / Gethin's " Pitchfork " right in the middle of - " ( 0 ) P < Y > R [ - ] " - ? = I started to play with " Y " as a symbol that could mean " Making Choices " - " Left ? - or - Right ? " - and suggestive of " The Open Conspiracy / Ideologies " V " The Closed Conspiracy / Ideologies " - because " Y " can be spoken " Open ? - or - Closed ? " - " UUU ? - or - III ? " - and then there might be " Hekate " - " Y Tylwydd Teg " - and - of course - " (The) Hawthorn (Stick) / (The) MaY (Day) = Red Berry - White Flower - Green Leaf = Y Trilliw 1792 " - secret signals ? - taking the piss ? - making people think for themselves ? = Can you see how " Y " might signify " The Hive " i.e. " The Workers' / Pacificators' Republic " ? - " Y Ddraig Goch " ? - The Pyramid ? = Mind Games ? - Cryptic Cross Words ? - Covertly Calvert ? ... You do know that I do not normally write such straightforward poems ...

" Our Kine " - " The Word " - the choice of " kine " for its rhyme was right in line with The 19c Literary Theory in " Poésie Symboliste."

I presume that as one of our history buffs I do not need to explain to you " The Free Welsh Army " or the fate of its commanders ?

Hammering out stuff for this Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 omnibus - I really want PYR ! - " The Drovers " shaggy dragon story to finish off ...

Several emails around which I intend to forward - you are passing these emails to the likely suspects ? - Or am I just to have fun ???

In The QMH to use our wifi on my phone - as you know I am concerned about how Republicanism in Wales is misrepresented by those posing as Republicans because they are rebels excited by The UK's anti-Republican propaganda and by The Democrats in Wales and Westminster through eg The BBC which have now obviously blacklisted me - after Radio 4 published a poem by me on PM - after an idea from me on Making History - after Suzanne of Republic persuaded them to accept Y Repwblic onto that panel in Y Senedd but Huw Edwards was furious with her and refused to give me a platform also = As we all know one man does not constitute a party but one man can propose a party - design an organisation - to make a plan which will work if we stop trying to re-invent The Wheel and learn from the history of the other Republican movements in Europe what will work within our circumstances = Plaid Y Repwblic is " The Rota " - it means " The Wheel " - copied / adapted from several models e.g. The Chartists' Conventions and Assemblies - but " The Rota " itself was The Convention of 1659 which met to discuss " The Mad Plan " in Harrington's Oceania to try to restore The Rule of Law in The Republic in Britain and Ireland after Cromwell's death when factions threatened The Third Civil War = The Comonwealth was not Democratic because The House of Commons was full of Aristocrats who in the aftermath of The Second Civil War suppressed Free Speech and excluded their opponents who then regrouped as The Religious Republicans in 17c Quakerism

Dear Friends of Y Repwblic Yn Apmericka,

yeah - I deal in a lot of gags and puns like that - I think that most of The Republicans in Wales and The World think that I am not serious ...

... like my arguing that poetry is important in politics - i.e. on the one hand it is important to disturb The Mind in The People to loosen its grip on its ideologies - to prevent doctrinaire and simplistic ideas being substituted for thinking - that The People in Wales and The World really do not like being Enslaved to Freedom for a diverse series of reasons ... I often angry with them and wave around The Closed Fist of The Left Hand and blame them for being lazy and stupid - so easily duped into believing that in scratching The Cross on The Ballot Paper they are entering into The Social Contract rather than opting out of it ... but then - on the other hand - I raise The Open Palm of The Right Hand - and perhaps that signifies not so much The Friendly Politics in Republicanism - To give The Wave to Wales and The World - but my surrendering to The Reality in The Life of The Republican in Wales and The World : I know how difficult it is to think because I do far too much of it - and therefore I know how difficult it is to change ourselves - which is more or less the correct and proper extent of anybody's political political project - that whilst The Political Authority in The People is immovably located in The Facts and The Arguments about The Life in The People in Wales and The World - not The Votes and The Governments - it is always tempting not to think - not to act - to prefer to have others think and act on our behalves - to prefer to be enslaved to The Ultraists in Wales and The World - Hierocrats with their Lies, Democrats with their Hatreds, Aristocrats with their Injustices, Monocrats with their Wars - to believe in The Myths of The Sovereignties of The God, The Mob, The Dollar, The Gun - that they are entitled not only to be The Governments in Wales and The World - but also to exempt themselves from The Rule of Law and not be accountable to The Facts and The Arguments in The Life of The People ... I can understand that The Reasoning in The Opting Out of The Public Discourse is most likely to be The Rationalising of The Fear of The Governments in Wales and The World ... but ... whilst we are Enslaved to Freedom - and in deciding to give The Money in The Pocket to The Muggers in The Street we are still behaving Reasonably and Rationally - and even Morally and Ethically - in either that we are giving them The Dollar in saving The Life in ourselves - or that we are giving them The Dollar in saving The Life in ourselves ... Rationally and Reasonably - " Ourselves " are " We " and " Them " - but when The Mind in The People is clouded by passions such as Hatred and Love we do not think so clearly - most of us never choose between War or Peace - we React instead of Act - in Freedom - but without Free Will.

I am in Reaction ... The Deity That I Do Not Believe In But Have Faith In ... mugged me several weeks ago and demanded The Dollar and The Life.

The People in The Monotheisms in The World ought to be able to agree - G?D is The Bastard - The Delinquent does not even know The Parents.

With The Left Hand I am now shaking The Closed Fist at - Him/Her/It/Thingy - and with The Right Hand I am now waving The Open Palm at - ???

" Handwaving " eh ? - The Bastard in The Writer's Block - after writing all of this good stuff - http://repwblic.informe.com/viewtopic.php?t=1550

I have Reacted by decorating The Leaflet in Y Dydd Rhydd 2019 ... instead of writing it ... as usual I wrote far too much - but this needs editing !!!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand-waving

Hand-waving ( with various spellings ) is a pejorative label for attempting to be seen as effective – in word, reasoning, or deed – while actually doing nothing effective or substantial. It is most often applied to debate techniques that involve fallacies, misdirection and the glossing over of details. It is also used academically to indicate unproven claims and skipped steps in proofs ( sometimes intentionally, especially in instructional materials,) with some specific meanings in particular fields, including literary criticism and speculative fiction, mathematics and logic, and science and engineering. The term can additionally be used in work situations, when attempts are made to display productivity or assure accountability without actually resulting in them. The term can also be used as a self-admission of, and suggestion to defer discussion about, an allegedly unimportant weakness in one's own argument's evidence, to forestall an opponent dwelling on it. In debate competition, certain cases of this form of hand-waving may be explicitly permitted.

25-06-19 - 02.00 AM - ( I can not sleep properly ) ...

... mmm ... Most of The People ... Most of The Time ... Mostly think that what I have been talking about is ... yeah - " The Mad Plan " ... but not everybody - I encountered DD on Sunday and he pressed a printout into my hand and I took a look at it briefly and recoiled because it has a sword depicted on it - and in fact it looks a lot like " >|< " - which seemed rather peculiar to me that DD - known for being a very gentle sort of Perfectly Principled Pacifist Republican whereas I have been described as being " Passivist-Aggressive " and of course I object to being described as a " Passivist " when I simply am not Passive but certainly am Aggressive on ... er ... rather too many occasions ... permanently probably - I even wake up in the middle of the night with grinding chronic anger about certain ongoing situations political rather than personal ... But perhaps I am easily bored and look around for new things to be angry about for the sake of a bit of novelty ... I actually got annoyed with DD because I thought that given his anxiety he was thinking the same way as so many - " Yep - Dai has finally lost it ... he must be deluded to think that The Mad Plan even has a chance of ... "

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fellowship_Party =

But I was wrong - DD was deliberately drawing my attention to some people who had already executed something very much like The Mad Plan - Ron Mallone and Sidney Fagan - and " The Fellowship Party " ... which lasted fifty two years ? ... It was an Absolutist Pacifist, Socialist and Environmentalist Party ... mmm ... The Fellowship Party contested The General Elections 1959 - 1997 ... PYR ? ... Oh - #### ! - another person - Ron Mallone - who lost his job and got blacklisted for his politics - he won ( can you win ? ) an unconditional exemption from war service and lost not only his job but his pension and benefits - but on the other hand that means he had more time to pursue his political objectives ... and so co-founded The Fellowship Party in 1955 - and this was one of the forerunners of The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament ( CND ) ... and he supported Spurs ? ... DD left me with a card as well - he is a very nice person - it says " Naturally, as both a pacifist and a republican, I am keen on any initiative to get these points of view highlighted ... [ ME TOO DD ] ... You are such a thorough-going thinker ...

... [ HA HA - IF ONLY YOU COULD LISTEN IN TO MY RAMBLING THOUGHTS ! ] ... and I have huge regard and respect for you ... It upsets me a lot that there is seemingly such a herd instinct out there ... [ OH GOSH - DD ACTUALLY KNEW RON MALLONE - I SEE !!! ] ... I just hope that this material is of interest ... [ YES - IT IS - AND ENCOURAGING TO READ ABOUT TOO ! ] ... So who else was involved - ah - The Great and The Gifted ... Kenneth Greet ... Glenn Paige ... Albert Belden ... Eric Fenner ... George Onion ... and -

YOU READ THE BIT ON TREASON FELONY ? - IT WAS SUPPOSEDLY CREATED TO PREVENT THE VIOLENT OVERTHROW OF THE MONARCHY IN THE UNITED KINGDOM - ACTUALLY IT HAS RESULTED IN THE JUDICIAL MURDER OF THE PACIFISTS IN THE BRITISH EMPIRE - THE BRITISHITES HATE CONSCHIES - BUT THEY UTTERLY DESPISE AND FEAR ABSOLUTE PACIFISTS : THE WAR MACHINE AND BANKERS LOVE THE BOMB ... AND OUR BARRICADES THEN EXCUSE THEM TO PORTRAY REPUBLICANS AS FIGHTING " OFFENSIVELY " AND BEING CRIMINALS - NOT PATRIOTS ...
