It’s for your own good

Posted in Blogging by 200

Welcome to any visitors from our farming community. I’m not sure where the link between farming & policing is but for some reason I’ve been recommended as a ‘website you really must see‘ over  at the British Farming Forum.

I expect that even farmers have some spare time to read other people’s blogs in between filling out all those European Free Money Grant application forms.

Talking about people visiting this site. I also had the good fortune to be listed at Stumble Upon last week. I have no idea what Stumble Upon is but it seems someone stumbled upon one of my posts & as a result I got double the amount of visitors than I normally do, always good for the old hit count. The thing is, the link on Stumbled upon wasn’t even one of my newer posts; it was from September 2007.

I suppose we should be grateful that we have blogs to visit, while we can. Since the police PSDs have only managed to close down some of the blogs, it’s only a matter of time before someone tells ISPs that they are no longer allowed to carry blogs deemed by somebody with power to be ‘unhelpful‘.

Doubtless any ban on blogging will be wrapped up in some kind of anti-terrorism, we’re doing it for your own good, kind of propaganda we are growing ever more used to these days.

Somebody commented on a recent post with a quote from Herman Goering: “The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

I guess that is as good today as it was in the 1930s.
