Smash the System

I am a National Revolutionary, in that I do not want to see the system reformed - I want to see it smashed to peices, its remains ground into dust and then buried in salted earth to ensure it never grows back again.

We cannot allow this level of wealth inequality in our country, for the vast wealth reserves of the 1 % must be used by the state to assist in solving poverty, homelessness and educational under achievement.

I am not a socialist who believes that equality can be imposed via redistribution of wealth, I am a Nationalist who believes that the super rich have a duty to assist their country, people, society and communities.

Therefore the mechanism of the National State must act to ensure that the super rich hand over a percentage of their wealth to the National State in order that the wealth they hand over is put to work building schools, hospitals, creating jobs and building a better Britain.

The old system where a class of super rich land owners who also own most of the wealth can pass that on in perpetuity to their offspring and the rest of society must suffer impoverishment as a result offends me - at some time in British history a decisive break with that system must come, and in its place a new more just and equitable system imposed.

This system though must benefit only British citizens and not the host of illegal immigrants, bogus asylum seekers and economic migrants in this country.

Those useless Tory Toffs like James Bethell, whose entire wealth, power and social privilege is based on his being the one sperm amongst 20 million ejaculated by his father to reach the egg, have to finally be forced to become part of our national society - as opposed to an over privileged elite who are separated from society as a result of their wealth and land ownership.

If you are rich and British and want to live in a civilised nation, then the social inequality of just 1 % of the population owning 70 % of the wealth and land must end.

We no longer wish to live in a society of lord and peasants - that primitive form of society is a historical anachronism not a modern and sustainable Nationalist Society.

British Nationalism offers the rich a choice - co-operate with us in building a fairer and better British society or be prepared for civil war in the future.

That is the choice, for in every human society in history where the rich grow richer and the poor grow poorer we see only revolutions or civil war.

The more that our society impoverishes our people and rewards the rich, the more resentment grows.

A new form of Nationalist Class Warfare will sooner or later erupt.

I missed this report yesterday but it’s an interesting one. According to consultants AT Kearney, the richest 1pc in the UK hold some 70pc of the country’s wealth. That there is this divide between rich and poor is not exactly new – but the scale of it, and the likelihood that it is not being narrowed by the financial crisis, is a big worry. Indeed, according to the report, in the US the amount of financial assets owned by the richest 1pc in the US is far, far lower at 48pc, and only 34pc in Australia.

This must, to a large degree, be due to the fact that the UK set itself up in recent years as a haven for the super-rich, with its relatively generous rules on capital gains tax, because the income tax system itself is rather more redistributive than in the US. But the Kearney report is interesting because, unlike the traditional measure of inequality, the gini coefficient, it focuses not on income (the flow of money) but on actual substantive wealth (the stack of it that sits beneath us).

Says Penney Frohling, a partner at AT Kearney: “To understand the impact of the market crash, though, you need to look at wealth – not just how much people hold, but how it is held across different asset types. This is harder to do but drives quite different insights about how deeply and how widely the market crash and subsequent recovery have affected investors across age and wealth bands.”

“On an income basis, the UK and Australia have similar levels of equality according to the UN, with the US having proportionately more very high- and very low-earners. But in terms of the distribution of what people own rather than what they earn, the UK picture is more like an emerging market – though of course at a higher level.”

In the latest UN report on the gini coefficient (in which a score of 0 means absolutely equal income across the population and 100 means one person has all the income), the UK scored 36.0, Australia 35.2, USA: 40.8.

In part the poor score for the UK is due to its relatively ungenerous pension provision, compared with Australia where there is a compulsory pension savings scheme.

But what I find particularly intriguing (and this is something which won’t be clear for another year or more) is the question of whether this crisis has levelled out those inequality gaps. The Great Depression and its aftermath most certainly did, but despite the fact that the gini coefficient (certainly in the US, probably in the UK) are at levels comparable with the late 1920s and early 1930s, we haven’t yet seen any kind of dramatic social backlash as a result.
