THE ‘PHOBIA’ SCAM: Why Brexiphobia is unique in being a serious mental condition

cracks

meglycinessnipA wired species trait is usually a survival mechanism, and as such it cannot be a phobia.
I make the point because ‘phobia’ is often used in our contemporary world by those who want to suggest they/others are being victimised – homophobia, Islamaphobia, Xenophobia, aviophobia etc – when in fact they are merely a complete pain in the arse. The Slog explains why Brexiphobia is the exception.


As a pack species well documented as being gratuitously violent and tribal to a self-destructive degree, we are demonstrating a remarkable inability to  evolve beyond that State of Nature.But one can either see this as dysfunctional, or merely an evolutionary reaction to a world that is as dangerous as it ever was.
A fear based on empirical experience is not a phobia.

Aviophobia is a fear of flying derived from the fact that one is 35,000 feet from the ground in something made of metal, and aeroplanes crash. Xenophobia is a fear of unknown interlopers who usually, throughout history, do not have one’s best interests in mind. (Turks > Greeks, Brits >Indians, Americans < the Red Man). Islamaphobia is an entirely rational response to mad people whose penchant for radical amateur surgery is infamously legendary. And homophobia is (where I come from) a backlash against switching on the telly night after night to hear endless tedious jokes about dicks, fists, rodents and the joys of hanging from door-jambs.

Brexophobia, on the other hand, is an insane desire to be part of an anti-democratic, bullying, federalised superState as opposed to free and in charge of one’s own destiny. [In its extreme form, it becomes agrophobia….not to be confused with aggrophobia, an entirely normal desire to avoid British football hooligans].

Why, for example, would otherwise normal citizens variously reject friends, spit bile, burst into tears and declare themselves “devastated” at the thought of being released from a lunatic asylum?

I thought there weren’t going to be any more bailouts….but a bailout designed by J P Morgan? What on earth could go wrong?

The EU has given us the unpreparedness for the migrant problem, the ‘solution’ to the migrant problem involving chucking money at Erdomad, the ‘quota’ of refugees per State that brought on Brexit, austerity in Greece, and doing bugger-all to help Greece with its refugee frontline problems, having buggered the Greek economy with debt increases as a means of getting the country’s sovereign debt down.

‘Cooled’ is an understatement given that growth fell by 66% compared to Q1.

Yes folks, seeing this anarchic mess as a safe haven is bona fide, hard evidence of delusional discernment. I rest my case.

  2. Dear John Ward who is not John Ward

    I takes about 15 seconds of my time to keep blocking you. Trust me, you are – as nuisances go – down there with Jess Conrad in terms of quality. But it’s your life to waste if that’s how you want to spend it.

  4. For thed real JW :-) finding the impersonation game they play kind of stupid…

    Now I could pretend to be Erdogan the Kurd killer just back from my setup coup, goal was to kill 6k or so of those that would oppose me. Or maybe a pissed tyrant Junkers who is not elected while old lapdop Merkel keeps running to thed Bundestag to get approval of everything “German consitution is best see!”.

    When you start doing impersonations from the perpsective of truth it cuts like a knife through the conciousness whereas stupid attempts of intimidation don’t go far.

    So I am going to pretend to be Theresa May now,

    “I ain’t f%cking working with UKIP supporters they can go spin see coz we ain’t leaving the EU we are just going to drag it out forever. All those poor twats who thought they were leavng will be in there coffins before that ever happens. Now me and Sturgeon have done a deal to shut the English up so they ain’t ever leaving coz we say so. My best pal Sturgeon doesn’t really want Scottish independence she is just wanting to sell out the Scots into the EU because she gets more kudos for it.

    Truth hurts them far more than me in their live that is an illusion of tranquility.

    That JPM 50 billion bad bank? Did they just lose 10 billion more coz that went up like 25% in a few days from the magic number 40 billion for Italian banks or is that JPM’s cut?

  6. Your simplistic mind does not accommodate the consequences of leaving the eu. Nowhere is perfect, but you invent stories daily to justify and satisfy the destructive instincts in your head. We know tht you backed Brexit, but were unable to show us the potential downsides. Not once.

    Consequences are the result of any decision made, either individually or collectively, and for every negative for one man, there will be a positive for another. In my humble opinion, the total destruction of Greece, the lack of opportunity for 50% of young folk in Spain, Italy, Romania etc which causes enormous numbers to abandon their homeland and cause a demographic ticking timebomb, and the total failure of any attempt at meaningful reform in the EU power cabal is the only consideration worth having. And if you think it is but a trifling issue compared to your little period of uncertainty until you can see what the consequences really are for You, then I feel sorry………unless you are one of those who always gained through the rape and pillage of what was once a glorious southern med. and the constant undermining of democracy?

    Most of us reading John’s thoughts are able to do enough thinking outside the box to see potential downsides, without needing them to be spelt out. For me, the risk was always lesser than the destruction within. Time will tell.

  8. Form Hugh Hendry’s value walk:
    Following Britain’s announced departure, the equation has changed. Previously with 28 members and no history of exit the EU’s gravitational pull was immense. But it was vulnerable to just one defector weakening the system. This is where we are now and the UK has the upper hand. Political commentators may be in revolt, but the combination of higher gilt prices and the sharp drop in sterling mean that the British need not fear the passage of time.
    Recall that there were 45 member countries committed to the gold standard prior to the UK’s departure in 1931 but just 12 by 1933. How many of the remaining 27 European member countries will there be in 2018?

  9. The Invergordon Rebellion:
    Founded in the 16th century, the Royal Navy doesn’t do mutiny. However the events which took place on the west coast of Scotland in mid-September 1931 came perilously close. Returning from manoeuvres at sea, the sailors were horrified to read in the newspapers that their wages were being cut yet again, this time by as much as 25%. Enraged, they refused orders to take the fleet back to sea. The stand-off lasted 48 hours but this was long enough to turn the tide of confidence against sterling. For when the news filtered back to London it destroyed the market’s prevailing belief that the politicians of the day could credibly pursue further austerity measures and so, after six long and miserable years, Britain came to reject a fixed exchange rate regime, the Gold Standard, and the pound fell 25%. Plus ca change..?

    The new policy regime, haphazardly shaped from the emotions of anger and resentment, flew in the face of accepted economic wisdom. It was immediately deemed by the commentariat to be a tragic mistake. The economy would crash and London’s financial centre was doomed. Again, sound familiar..?

    Of course we know that things got better. For shorn of the cult of austerity, and riding on the crest of a huge stimulus delivered by the currency devaluation, the British economy recovered quickly. To quote a common refrain from the time, nobody told us we could do that, and yet within two years most other countries had adopted the same policy.

  10. We are being primed andf readied for the coming economic rape.

    The massive transfer of wealth from the braindead peasantry to the elite and their banks will begin soon.

    Be prepared for the usual The sky is falling, the sky is falling type stories followed by “In order to save the world economy the poorest must give everything they have left to the parasitic elite”.

    The old ones work besat. They have done for centuries…
