False Globalisation

Propaganda Lives On

The presence of the spectre of the TPP, TTIP and TISA secretive ‘trade’ deals (and many other such deals like them) would lead anyone to think that the world is becoming increasingly homogenised for corporate purposes, that a grand unification of the hundreds of countries into one subservient consumer mass is already underway and importantly that no-one either can or should do anything to stop this. Coca-Cola and Pepsi bottles and cans can be found the world over, every city has a McDonald’s or ten and why would any country wish to impede this availability of consumer familiarity that everyone knows and loves (to hate)? Why indeed?

2007 Todmorden Boundary Walk

This picture is by me, from 2007 Todmorden Boundary Walk. (Sun, 06 May 2007  11:46:51). The Boundary Walk is held annually as a symbolic reminder of those who trampled the enclosures - and theoretically for the purpose of doing so again, should the need arise, though the commons' boundaries have remained fairly stable for some time now. This particular image shows the tiny figure of a hiker by the Stoodley Pike Monument (built in the time of the 1800s' disputes about commons enclosure) on Langfield Common, from the vantage point of a road forming the boundary on the other side of the valley. The marked difference between the medieval fields, the larger later enclosures with their straight edges on the hillsides and the remnant, one-time acid rain damaged common peat & millstone-grit moorland above, is striking.
