Just when we thought it safe to stow away this particular New Dada work from 2006 til’ the World Cup; on account of a half-decent performance at last by the England boys in a tournament…up pops the dreaded penalty shootout exit after a truly dismal performance.
Some things (will?) never change.

Gradually, imperceptibly, the majority are brainwashed by the mainstream media into a world of daily conformity to a global commercial stereotype
where each individual is encouraged to view themselves as paramount to any other ( Divide and Rule. )Where each one becomes
dedicated to their own personal individual gratification at any expense to others, thus becoming
ideal consumers. This naturally involves a disconnect from the reality of another’s life.
A world therefore, where the vulnerable – the unborn, the young, the disabled, the elderly and the millions of imprisoned factory-farmed animals – are prone to abuse. And where human tragedy ( Milly Dowler in extremis ) simply becomes another commodity to be sold for profit.
* Update May 2014. The term ” The Everyday” – coined here by Michael St. Mark in 2012 – now in common useage.
Second in the social commentary series ” What is becoming of us?”

Denizens of Otherworld – gambling with their customers’ money in the casino of world finance. When they win they open the bonus bubbly, when they lose the debt gets passed back to the customer with interest and the corporate criminals leave with large payoffs.
* Can anyone sum up the banking scenario more succinctly than ” a rigged casino” without resorting to profanities?
