J Bov Explodes Rhetorically

Fuck Liberal Guilt

I was Stumbling around (if you have Firefox and don’t have a Stumble button you’re doing it so wrong you shouldn’t be allowed a computer) and I just found this:

If we could shrink the earth’s population to precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:

There would be:
57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 8 Africans
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south

52 would be female, 48 would be male
70 would be non-white, 30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian, 30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual, 11 would be homosexual

6 people would possess 59% of the entire world’s wealth and all 6 would be from the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read

50 would suffer from malnutrition, 1 would be near death, 1 would be near birth
1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education, 1 would own a computer

When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent. The following is also something to ponder:

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness…you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation… you are ahead of 500 million people in the world. If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death… you are more blessed than three billion people in the world. If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep… you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace… you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. If your parents are still alive and still married… you are very rare, even in the United States and Canada. If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.


Sure it raises a good point. Why, then, add the preachy little text-block at the end of the cold, hard facts?

Fuck, look at this stuff:

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness…you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

One, you can not empirically measure ‘health’. ‘Health’ has no scale, you can’t have “15 health today, Mr. Johnson, what were you up to at the weekend?” Life isn’t a videogame.
More ‘Blessed’? BLESSED!? What the shit? Now it’s god’s fault that I’m healthier than people who drink their own shit?
Moving on.

Battle, torture, starvation; fair enough I don’t know about them and that makes me lucky.

Attending church without fear of harassment and attack; I choose not to attend any sort of church based thing and there are people in the world who would attack me for that, but I guess it’s not the same. And again they use ‘blessed’. It’s nothing to do with some higher power gifting us this stuff.
Why would a loving god put people in situations where they have to boil piss so they can drink and get shot at if they love him/her/it?


This. This is where it starts to get annoying;

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep… you are richer than 75% of this world.

That was stated in the facts, as such reiteration is pointless, but also patronising. I’m richer than 75% of the world because I was born in a country that is relatively rich. I didn’t fucking ask to be born here, did I? Given the choice I wouldn’t have been born into a country where I would live in a gutter and get a fresh batch of AIDS every day as hobos raped me, no, but neither would the writer of this piss-wash drivvel. The only reason people want to change the world is if it makes them uncomfortable.
If people were never told about this kind of shit, they’d be happy as that chirpy bastard Larry. But no, people want this kind of stuff to stop because they were born into a rich country and feel guilty about people being poorer than them. Everyone is a self-serving bastard, no exceptions.

And then this;

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace… you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hang on, you’re trying to make me feel guilty? Because I have some money? There are people in the world who could feed and clothe an entire third world country on their fucking yearly salary, who could educate a city’s worth of people and provide them with simple medicines on what they make IN A FUCKING WEEK and you want me to feel guilty?
Because I was born where I was born, you want me to give my money to people who have less than me. Fine. Charity is great and I’m not devoid of a soul, but why make everyone feel guilty when the four, maybe five or six, richest people in the world could solve world hunger on their fucking own?
Why are you guilt-tripping me? I don’t have that much money either. Granted, I have more than starving, disease-ridden street orphans, but fuck, I have to eat too.

A stupid person would see this and go ‘Oh noes! I must give all my money to a charity immediately.’ At which point they’d give a substantial amount, an amount they can’t really afford while rich fuckers sit in their boardrooms guffawing at the stock market or something and people still die.

I just think this quote should have stuck to the facts and not got all preachy. They were interesting, eye-opening and made me all riled up for some kind of world-changing and then I read that fucking drool and lost interest.

I’m not heartless. I know I’m in one of the best off countries in the world, in terms of healthcare, schooling and general quality of life.
I know there are people in the world who deserve my sympathy and help, they didn’t ask to be born in Grime Hole, Shitland any more than I asked to be born here.

Luck of the draw, and I, like any self-respecting person, do what I can to help them, even if it’s just the occasional donation.
I don’t think they brought it on themselves, I don’t think their own governments (if they have any) can sort it out, I think the only way to stop this kind of shit (if there even is a way to stop it, which is an interesting if depressing philosophical point) is for people who can afford it to stop whining about their Porshce, their £400 hair-do and their perfect manicures and pitch the fuck in.
Footballers – Pitch the fuck in.
Businessmen – Pitch the fuck in.
Musicians, writers, directors, producers, lawyers

Get off your fat fucking arses and PITCH THE FUCK IN.

Do something with your (undeserved, in many cases) mountains of cash besides buying spinners for you fucking hummer (or ‘Bastardmobile’) or a new swimming pool in your summer house in the woods that’s as big if not bigger than your normal house or a new fucking Super-Mink and Panda fur coat for your one-week-girlfriend who’ll spill £2000 champagne with gold in it down the fucking thing and just bin it.

Argh, get the fuck out of your own little pissing worlds of money, ‘glamour’, ‘success’ and pointless bastarding decadance and help someone who needs help for a fucking change.

Would it kill you? Would you die if you gave money away to help someone who not only doesn’t have a house but can’t afford a fucking sheet of tarpaulin to sleep under?
No. You might even find that some of that knawing depression goes away and you can sleep at night. If you aren’t too busy snorting overpriced Ket off a hooker’s labia, that is.

What is so wrong with maybe NOT buying that fifth Ferrari just to fill your one mile driveway and giving that money to people who care, people who aren’t constantly guilty of being the worst scum humanity could possibly find stuck to the bottom of it’s shoe.

Fucking help someone who can’t do it themselves you actual bastards. What the fuck is wrong with you.
You’re the kind of people that if given a clear perspective of your lifestyle by some futuristic machine would actually REQUEST to be first against the fucking wall.

I fucking hate you and everything you stand for you slimy, worthless, evil, nasty, horrible fucking scum-sucking, festering, idiotic, heartless spawns of something foul-smelling.

Do something for someone else, or pretty soon there wont be anybody left to farm your organic fucking lettuce that you waste half of anyway and you’ll starve to death and I hope it fucking wracks you with agony, you twats.

Get the fuck out of my existance.
