Me - today



Antonin Artaud On Suicide

(Photo; Vincent Van Gogh &  Antonin Artaud)

* It is almost impossible to be a doctor and an honest man, but it is obscenely impossible to be a psychiatrist without at the same time bearing the stamp of the most incontestable madness: that of being unable to resist that old atavistic reflex of the mass of humanity, which makes any man of science who is absorbed by this mass a kind of natural and inborn enemy of all genius.
* I myself spent nine years in an insane asylum and I never had the obsession of suicide, but I know that each conversation with a psychiatrist, every morning at the time of his visit, made me want to hang myself, realizing that I would not be able to cut his throat.
Antonin Artaud


 P.s Doctors  in psychiatric hospital use electroshock treatments on Antonin Artaud, In January 1948, Artaud was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. He died shortly afterwards on 4 March 1948, alone in the psychiatric clinic..
(fatherfuckers doctors killed genius!:(( K. S)


Both are great, Where they are now, ?.. all good people died..
. where they are now ???????
 Lou Reed watchs me from my wall, His eyes are full of sadness.. It makes me feel sad,
 I'm very confused.. it's deep pain, where they gone, where they gone, where they gone..


James Joyce - Walking Into Eternity


 James Joyce 
*  Irresponsibility is part of the pleasure of all art; it is the part the schools cannot recognize.
* You forget that the kingdom of heaven suffers violence: and the kingdom of heaven is like a woman.
 * I think a child should be allowed to take his father's or mother's name at will on coming of age. Paternity is a legal fiction.
                  James Joyce
P.s  Not only name,  mother's or father's or country's  religion too. I was born christian - orthodox ... 
WhEn i grown up, I found out it was too "funny"..:D 
Just violence and stupidity never was funny to me..
 Stupidity is equal violence and stupidity hurts me, deadly.

Irresponsibility is part of the pleasure of all art; it is the part the schools cannot recognize.” - Pauline Kael.????? What's going on?:DDDD

Mario Savio - Free Speech Movement's Activist

 Mario Savio
Mario Savio was an incendiary student leader of the Free Speech Movement at the University of California at Berkeley in the 1960s, a protest movement also againsted  the Vietnam War. In the 1960s, Savio, a fiery, inspiring orator whose father was a machine punch operator, was an adversary of Clark Kerr, the University of California president, who referred to the university as a factory and dismissed the Free Speech Movement.
Mario Savio is remembered for the words he spoke on Dec. 2, 1964,  in front of Berkeley's University's building, during proests The police arrested 800 of the protesters in what was the largest mass arrest in California history. Savio became a member of the executive committee of the Free Speech Movement, an organization representing a score of civil rights and political groups at Berkeley. At a news conference after the Dec. 2 action, Savio said it had been the most successful student strike in American history, with only 17 percent or 18 percent of the students attending classes.


*I am not a political person. My involvement in the Free Speech Movement is religious and moral... I don't know what made me get up and give that first speech. I only know I had to. What was it Kierkegaard said about free acts? They're the ones that, looking back, you realize you couldn't help doing.
 *You can't disobey the rules every time you disapprove. However, when you're considering something that constitutes an extreme abridgement of your rights, conscience is the court of last resort.
 *Freedom of speech is something that represents the very dignity of what a human being is. If you cannot speak... I mean, that's what marks us off. That's what marks us off from the stones and the stars. You can speak freely. It is almost impossible for me to describe. It is the thing that marks us as just below the angels. I don't want to push this beyond where it should be pushed, but I feel it.
 * The "futures" and "careers" for which American students now prepare are for the most part intellectual and moral wastelands. This chrome-plated consumers' paradise would have us grow up to be well-behaved children. But an important minority of men and women coming to the front today have shown they will die rather than be standardized, replaceable, and irrelevant.* There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus and you've got to make it stop."

UK - 2014

'The leader of the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage, was asked whether his wife, who is German, was taking a British person's job by being employed as his secretary.

BBC political editor Nick Robinson put the question at the launch of UKIP's European elections poster campaign warning about Europeans taking British jobs.

Mr Farage said "nobody else could do that job", working unsociable hours seven days a week.

He said it was "very different" to the hundreds of thousands of people "flooding" the lower end of the labour market.'..
http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/04/21/ukip-posters_n_5185245.html

"Ukip's New Anti-EU Posters Decried As 'Racist' And 'Inaccurate',
 Ukip posters that decry "foreign labour" and call on voters to "take back control of our country" have been condemned as racist and bigoted by several political opponents.
But leader Nigel Farage dismissed the criticism of his immigration-centred Ukip poster campaign as wails from the "chattering classes" and said the posters were "a hard-hitting reflection of reality".

Labour MP Mike Gapes said they were "racist" and appealed to "all decent British Commonwealth and EU citizens" to register to vote in May's polls.
(You racists wanted UKIP :))
The posters were also derided by many on social media, with many calling the stats inaccurate:

It is a costly campaign for the Eurosceptic party, using £1.5 million of funding from millionaire ex-Tory donor Paul Sykes for its biggest-ever publicity drive ahead of European Parliament elections on May 22.

The posters which warn "British workers are hit hard by unlimited foreign labour" and that 26 million unemployed people across Europe are "after" UK jobs will be displayed on hundreds of billboards across the country.

75% of British laws are made in Brussels, says another poster. Another claims UK taxpayers fund the "celebrity lifestyle" of EU bureaucrats.

Farage said those who compared the posters to those of the BNP were wrong.

"These posters are a hard-hitting reflection of reality as it is experienced by millions of British people struggling to earn a living outside the Westminster bubble," he said.

"Are we going to ruffle a few feathers among the chattering classes? Yes. Are we bothered about that? Not in the slightest.

"Ukip is hugely grateful to Paul Sykes for his magnificent contribution to the great cause of restoring Britain's ability to be a self-governing nation. The political earthquake I have spoken of is on its way."

Sykes said: "I am supporting the biggest advertising campaign in Ukip's history to bring home to the British people what is at stake.

"The European elections are the most important for many years.

"We have the chance to support a party that represents a complete break with the past. The other parties, whatever their merits, are content to work within the existing Brussels straitjacket.

"They cannot do anything about immigration or British workers being undercut by cheap foreign labour and they are prisoners of the European Court of Justice and the closely-related European Court of Human Rights, which stops us deporting foreign criminals and terrorists.

"They are about to embrace new European controls over our policing and justice systems - including the European arrest warrant, they allow interference in our tax system and they subcontract more and more of our foreign and defence policies to unelected EU bureaucrats.

"An overwhelming victory for Ukip will break the political mould in the UK, forcing Labour and the Lib Dems to back a full-scale referendum and intensifying the popular pressure for that to be staged as early as general election day 2015."
(1972 anti-immigration march by London's Smithfield meat market porters. )
P.s Migration is a much debated subject around the world, especially in undemocratic countries and societies.   It's Stewart Lee's  comedy  show about immigration, I said before we are all immigrants and this comedy show is about it, Oscar Wilde wrote; 'If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.', maybe in 21 century nobody kill you especially in Britain in democratic society, but they will hate you, doesn't matter if in the UK " Hate is crime", hate is everywhere.. you can read in people's eyes and  behaviors.
Stewart Lee is comedian, he is lucky, I'm poet and activist, I'm not very lucky.. but anyway; "Hate is crime' in the UK, when in many countries  HATE was/is norm and LOVE was/is crime.
( K. Shiuka)
P. s  In Germany was quite similar process and posters 1933s.  but most of them (Nazi - poetesrs ) about jews people, there museums are full about for example; " Jews people taken germans jobs' etc.;)))


P. s  John Lennon's dream ' Yellow Submarine' still is only dream, dream about multicultural ' Free society',  but 'People who have the power, power of dream, never will give up their dreams about true freedom and democracy...

And real women don't hit men!:) Domestic violence victims aren't only women, men too.. In the UK and everywhere lots of men are victims too ( by women). Human is human everybody needs safety, better Non - violence. I think Violence is brain weakness! I recognised only brain power and kiss my brain, both men/women.
