Much of this website is out-of-date, due to the coming to power of a Conservative (Tory)/Liberal Democrat coalition, replacing the Labour Party that had been in power since 1997, in the May 2010 general election in Britain. This coalition government has announced cuts of around 20% in most departments' budgets, a public sector pay freeze and attacks on pension rights. In the run-up to the Trades Union Congress (TUC) demonstration in London on the 20th of October 2012 (and an STUC demo in Glasgow on the same day), I have written a new newsletter (this time for the Revolutionary Platform Network - to read it and/or print off copies for photocopying and distribution at one of those demos go to the Revolutionary Platform Network News page), calling for a general strike against austerity (millions cannot afford to wait until 2015), an end to tax loopholes and havens (including the UK) and international revolution to end austerity and the threat of fascism. For my analysis after the general election, I suggest visiting/joining my Facebook group Very Democratic Socialism, visiting my new Facebook page www.facebook.com/socialiststephen, my Twitter page www.twitter.com/socialiststeve or my Revolutionary Platform Network forum on Facebook. Note that my previous Facebook page www.facebook.com/socialiststeve was deleted by administrators in what I strongly suspect was an act of censorship, in the important period in the run-up to the general election (but perhaps it was for the good since the Tories and Liberal Democrats taking the blame for the cuts is far better objectively than just the Tories or Labour!)
I wrote a new Foundation for Proportional Representation-based Socialism newsletter in March 2011, containing an analysis of the 23rd of March "budget for growth" by UK chancellor George Osborne (with predicted borrowing by the end of the government proof that the government can be forced to back down, with them previously planning to end the deficit by then). The newsletter then calls for areas of London to be occupied like Tahrir Square (in Cairo, Egypt) after the national TUC demonstration against the cuts on the 26th of March, particularly Hyde Park (where the demo ends) and Trafalgar Square. The newsletter also calls for for a one-day public sector general strike, as a step towards an all-out general strike to bring the government down and hopefully leading to a democratic socialist society. There are further sections on joining the struggle for Very Democratic Socialism (this Facebook group) and debating how to vote in the alternative vote referendum (in the UK on the 5th of May). You can download it for a single-sided sheet of A4 (in Micro$oft Word format or PDF format suitable for Adobe Acrobat) or as a double-sided A5 leaflet (in Micro$oft Word format or PDF format suitable for Adobe Acrobat) and print/photocopy it and distribute copies if you wish.
I wrote a new version of my manifesto about good/bad intentions on the 16th of August 2010, named The Marxist Good Intentions Manifesto because it is now compatible with Marxism (which I adopted as my guiding ideology again after the election taking into account the unfolding class struggle against the cuts). You can download it in Micro$oft Word format (by clicking here) or PDF format (by clicking here).
I have also uploaded three important documents about British politics that I have written since the general election to this website. They are all available in Micro$oft Word or PDF format:
In October 2009, the Guardian newspaper published a series of reports about police surveillance of thousands of so-called domestic extremists, of whom I am undoubtedly one as a revolutionary socialist, and many of whom have no criminal record or been charged of any offence. The use of this term strongly suggests that the powers that be will use legislation primarily used against Islamic fundamentalists against us too, and indeed such powers have already been used against animal rights activists. I couldn't find the diagram published in the newspaper of the control structure used against us, so as a resource for activists understanding our enemies, I have scanned it in and placed it (together with the text of a message I wrote publicising the Guardian revelations) in a file you can read in HTML format (suitable for browsing) or as a Micro$oft document (suitable for printing).
I wrote a short document called “Towards a Theory of Everything” in May 2009, suggesting how quantum mechanics (describing the very small) and relativity theory (describing the very large) can be unified taking the free will decisions of individuals into account. Karl Marx’s collaborator Friedrich Engels (who I believe was an agent of big business) dabbled in physics too and this document contains my proof that Marxist analyses are flawed, providing a scientific justification for my religious views! Click here to view the document, or download it in Rich Text Format or Micro$oft Word format suitable for printing/distribution.
I wrote a message in September 2009 urging socialists to call for the nationalisation of all the banks, with compensation only to pension schemes, and then the running of them democratically from below with most control in the hands of borrowers and savers. After the huge bailout of the banks (£1.3 trillion at the time of writing), nationalisation would allow access to funds that would remove the need for the huge cuts in public services that all three major parties are planning and/or tax rises (probably also planned but not yet revealed). You can read this message (and perhaps debate its contents) by clicking here.
I was in a band called Red Day, based in Glasgow (Scotland), until I moved to Manchester in September 2008. I have put recordings of some of our songs, including 9/11 Inside Job, on-line so they can be listened to or downloaded free of charge from the Red Day website or one of my social networking sites (see below). [You can read more of my views about 9/11 in the message on BBC Conspiracy Files: 9/11 and Princess Diana or go to the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories bulletin board on my Revolutionary Platform Network forum.] I re-formed my Manchester-based band Galaxia in October, but Jonny who did two further recordings with me (including Things Can Only Get Bitter) no longer wants to be involved, so I want to form a completely new band. Contact me (preferably by phoning 07725 735255 or emailing email@example.com) if you are interested in getting involved.
In early November 2007, I wrote and distributed two documents analysing the problems in the world’s stock markets, Financial meltdown soon – prepare for revolution and Barclays Bank will go bankrupt! For more of my analysis, visit my Banks & Building Societies page. I was almost certainly wrong about Barclays going bankrupt but contributed to its falling share price.
An ongoing project of mine is my autobiography, Revolution Destroyed? Have I ensured that a world socialist revolution will never happen?, which will remain free to download or browse on-line even if I eventually get a commercial publisher (that I do not envisage happening this side of an ethical and perhaps socialist revolution). You can read what I have written so far by clicking here.
I seemed to have worked out that the person who is almost certainly my main ally in the world, Priya Reddy (also known as warcry) of War Cry Cinema, was a political prisoner in a psychiatric institution in the USA which she has compared to the Auschwitz concentration camp. She finally emailed me to let me know that it is not true, which is wonderful news! For more information, visit her web page on this website. I publicised what I thought was her situation through some musical poetry I recorded in December 2007. I have done new recordings of You’re A Rebel and On My Own with my new band Red Day and put those recordings on top of the musical poetry MP3 files to correct this false information about her; this is particularly important since internet censorship restricts people in some countries (including China) from accessing web pages on this site. Note that people in some countries cannot access this website at all, but may be able to access my Revolutionary Platform Network Forum (probably because censors cannot work out whether accessing it will have positive or negative political repercussions), and should be able to access my pages on social networking websites (see below).
My main ally from a Marxist perspective (although his views may now have shifted somewhat) is probably Murray Smith, one of the leaders of the LCR in France which has established itself as the leading far left party and has an initiative for a revolutionary anti-capitalist party. Visit my Murray Smith page for more details.
In January 2007, I set up a virtual organisation called the Foundation for PR-based Socialism to argue for a form of socialism based on proportional representation by single transferable vote, consisting of a website: www.PRsocialism.org and the ‘PRsocialism’ discussion forum. I intended it to be an international conspiratorial organisation that infiltrates political parties and other important organisations in society, as well as having a public face including newsletters, but it hasn’t yet done anything conspiratorial. In 2011, I set up a related Facebook group Very Democratic Socialism, which is much more successful in terms of number of participants and amount of debate.
You can read the manifesto which I produced for the 2005 general election on-line or download it. For details, click here.
My main email address, which is synchronised with my mobile phone so I should not miss emails (which is likely to happen with my other addresses), is now firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me on my mobile phone (cellphone) on 07725 735255 (+44 7725 735255 from outside the UK). I would particularly like to hear from people who I have known in the past and lost touch with, but comments from others may also be welcome.
The following is a list of my pages, and the pages of my bands, on other social networking sites:
The following is a list of my websites, plus links that you can click on to view extremely detailed statistics about accesses to them (including how many hits each page receives, which other websites people are accessing the site from and search engine information). [Note that there is a bug in the stats-gathering program, which causes hits on the final day of each month (except for those very early in the day) to be missed. Note also that I have noticed that some of my accesses to my own websites have not been counted (sometimes getting the country wrong but also not counting any accesses on days I know I have), so take them with a pinch of salt...]
