The Tweet

I am reading the PM's tweet "We are writing off NHS debt as part of a major financial reset for NHS providers" and my hair rises at the back of my head. Ever since the COVID19  started I wanted to write "Now when you see how dysfunctional the NHS is, hope you’ll finally dismantle it" but restrained because the moment seemed inappropriate. 

But actually there is no other moment to write it. For it is now that we have to rethink the future.

Now we rethink, while dealing with COVID19, and then dismantle and build anew the NHS immediately after.

Everything about the NHS is dysfunctional for different technical reasons at different levels and places, but in principle for one big reason : the system was created and run by different kind of people, so it didn't have or need protection mechanisms. The class system doesn't help, as everybody imitates the behaviour of those on top of them...and as those on top are arrogant profiteers...

So the system is abused in a spectacular way. And here is the usual paradox, and as it is usual, it shouldn’t be a paradox any longer, but the paradox is that it still is a paradox: Whenever the finger points in one direction for “the guilty” one should look in the exactly opposite direction. Thus, the NHS is not failing because it treats tons of foreigners; but because it is run by aliens with "foreign" ethics and is overcrowded by spongering providers, not users. Just as there are so many drug users, because there are thus many drug dealers and not vice versa. There are just too many drug dealers, warmongers, human traffickers, NHS contractors etc etc Black Brethren pumping the light out of the world. You know it better than me; I am only just finding it out. I mean, you must have been silently witnessing it from ages. 

Since working in a renowned  NHS hospital - and don't get me wrong they perform miracles there, but at the same time the levels of abuse of the system at any given level are pharaonic - I always wonder why we insist on keep saying "African scale of corruption"? I mean why "African"? Really. The systematic witnessing of criminal levels of bullying,  extortion and corruption makes one paranoid. Not only did I not want to write about it, even though at the time I tried to get in touch with a BBC journalist, but I was even reluctant to keep notes on the subject.These notes, if only I've kept them, would have made a fantastic background for a criminal novel. And then a wonderful Netflix horror series.

The details don't matter because the system is ...well, systematically abused head to toe. Therefore, it has to be dismantled and built anew (Please note that I believe that anything that functions shouldn't be touched). There is no fixture for the NHS the way it is now though. 

In private healthcare, where every position up the line get's a percentage from the economies it makes downwards is even nastier. Strange phenomenons exist there, like subletting  your work position: it is very simple it works like that: I receive, say £20ph but I am letting you work in my position for £10. Thus, I mind my other business while still pocketing £10 ph every hour you work... Like in Libya at the zenith of Gaddafi's era. As much as I appreciate when somebody finds a way to abuse an American corporative system thus much I hate it, because it usually  is of negative consequences for everybody else, patients included. 

Another trick is when your line manager is signing for you, as it has lately happened to me. Which basically means that not one time did I receive the same amount of money for the same amount of working time. It has always been more or less, depending on the manager's needs.

Obviously, all these forms of extortion are witnessed directly by at least two-three people at any given time, who naturally don't have an opinion. Now, how do you fix this - People without any opinion or position whenever there is a personal price to be paid?

Good luck.

My text ‘Black&Blue* or The Makhno State of Affairs’, further down, is dedicated to this subject - the healthcare system in this country. Private and NHS, and in  the zones where these two coexist.

So yes, take the NHS apart and rebuild it from scratches integrating all possible anti-bullying, extortion, corruption and abuse mechanisms. And don’t allow capital - feudalism within the private healthcare in this country. 

Well, if you ask me, I would add "And no box-ticking health assessments either" ... but this is too much of wishfulthinking and daydreaming... for if there is no box-ticking at hospital assessments their wouldn’t be box-ticking tests at schools either… and this would obviously happen only after a massive human extinction.

1 April - Fools' Day, Jokes' Time

Think of all the bank staff used by private hospitals, like me, or by NHS contractors, like many others, now dumped on the Government's COVID 19 financial assistance scheems hahahahha

(Mind you, just a month ago I was promissed a contract, as I have been working in this private hospital since 2014.... tant pis.)

There are also plenty of jokes to tell about my bank- working. Every bank worker is supposed to fill in their own working hours on 'Work Day'. After "onboarding", yeh yeh, in an American healthcare corporation, one is supposed to recieve a code to fill in their shifts. Not me. For me it was done by "my line manager"... ask him/her why, I have no idea. When a week ago I recieved an email saying "sign in on your Work Day to recieved your 2019 bonuses" I worte to the line manager telling him about the email and asking "What about my 2019 bonuses now?" He didn't bother to answer. Hahahhahaha

And another joke, two weeks ago I bought a scooter online - such a lovely scooter with big wheels to go to work without using public transport and immunestimulants to become virus-invinsible - Due to work on Wednesday 25, Thursday 26 and Friday 27 of March, with my homeisolation expiring on Tuesday 24th.... Despite having spoken to the already famous line manager to confirm my attendence, upon my arrival at work I find out that somebody else has been given all my shifts. The private healthcare provider has dumped me on the Government's shoulder without notice nor valuable reason, getting advantage of my homeisolation hahahahahaha.

It was difficult to pick a fight over a working position of which one is terified. Yet, I still did hahahaha. Chiken fighting over a grain. (Mind you the imposter was a man. Proposterous, knowing that the position often requires interpreting brestfeeding instructions to veiled Arabic women... Even though, I have to admit, it sometimes requires interpreting at masculin fertility and libido consultations... "Are you getting erections? How is your ejaculation?  -  to Arabic men).  Later that evening all work at this position was cancelled anyway hahahahah

Mort de rire. Mort de rire ....That will teach me! Bank-worker! ha! Happy Fools Day.

As the slaves at a certain timespace point have stopped reproducing, all bank-workers should stop bankworking. I know, it is easier said than done, but I have a whole selfisolation eternity to think how to do it. Or more precisely, how to do-bank-working-not laughingly.

And this precisely is the joke: if this Conservative government had refused to act as a communist, not even socialist, one the free-runing liberal units of capital canibalism, like the one I was bank-woring for, would have turned this country into a Congo of the Ebola outbreak period, Gaza of 2012 Izraeli fire period and rural India at any given time combo. Can we conclude that even the toughest English Coservative soul is much more tender than the avarage manager in a Wild-Wild West corporation? Who knows? Who knows?

But I would like to say: It is now obvious that American corporative practices are in the detriment of this country.

And don't forget: HA HA HA HA HA to laaf and laugh.

Black&Blue* or The Makhno State of Affairs

Who would've thought?

Who would've thought that if you go Right enough you'll turn Left?

I mean we all know that if you go West, sooner or later you'll emerge from the East... But I didn't expect that Liberalism and the supposedly Free Market will look so much like anarchism and Makhno's Black Army.

Think of the self-audit of private and public structures and entities. It's Makhnovshtina.

Think of the self-management of these same private or public entities. It's Makhnovshtina.

Think of the voluntary work on which these private and public entities are based - I mean the minimal living wage and even the double of the minimal living wage are still within the frames of VOLUNTARY WORK because they ensure the functioning of the biological unite that provides the voluntary work. It's Makhnovshtina.

Think of how the private and public entities counting on voluntary work can't ask those biological unites offering voluntary work for accountability on mistakes committed on the work place because "we have difficulties to find people to work anyway, let alone if we start tracing mistakes". It's Makhnovshtina.

Think of how the outside world, or broadly speaking society, can't hold the entities counting on voluntary work responsible for their results and modus operandi for they autoimmune-diseasely self-protect. It's Makhnovshtina

There, private and public entities self-manage, self-audit, are unaccountable and autoimmune-diseasely self-protect. It's a Black Army. The whole so called Liberal System of the Free Market suffers from an autoimmune disease, currently in a remission period. Who would've thought? Who would've thought that the old communist saying "We pretend that we work; they pretend that they pay us" will find it's perfect illustration here, in the conditions of the Liberal System of the Free Market.

And yes, certainly those coming from the East did not expect to find Makhnovshtina when arriving in the West. ....but we should have. We should have known had we read more about Liberalism and Anarchism.**

*Not the film with the same name, even though I recomend it too as a good illustration of thr text.

** My scares knowledge of Makhnovshtina is based on Bulhakiv's White Guard.

"Don't know much about The Makhnobshtina, but NeoLiberalism smells Bolshevism " Zhoro aka Pyrko said on the subject.

PS Ça va de soi of all this Makhnovshtina I have no time for art. When I emerge from my Makhnovski Unit in the evenung all galleries have closed and all shows already commenced.
