An Hidden Discourse

An Hidden Discourse is the preferred title to;
Layers Of Meaning; Outside The Box; Go Go Gobbledigook; ReAssociative DisOrder; Cognitive Spanners, Bad Nut Jobs; They Target Our Children; Radio Mass Psychosis  and of similar ilk;

it abbreviating to AHD which itself alternatively means Attention (Deficit) Hyperactivity Disorder, a common diagnosis for kids (although it affects adults too) who are not given enough very early formative Positive Parenting and also for kids who are allergic to mercury based vaccinations. 

Behavioural psychologists recognise symptoms to involve unruly behaviour and non-responsive to adult stimulation, an impossibility for parental figures to control kids who do not relate to them. While regarded as usual in teenagers, an extreme form of this behaviour in younger children is alarming as is the increasing numbers, as is a distinct lack of specialist facilities and training. In the town where I live, one single mother very recently told me that the Social Services have advised her that if she voluntarily signs her ADHD child over to a foster parent, he will get every type of help he needs funded by the state, but if she does not then there is nothing they will do about it. 

Beware the Gobblers!
Fostering is a Growth Industry  in UK even during this time of controlled economic depression (a tv news bulletin today 25.1.2013 used the phrase 'a 'triple-dip' economic decline'), largely due to Forced Adoption Policy of a highly suspect QUANGO Anthony Douglas CBE BOTH the "Chief Executive  of CAFCASS (Children And Family Court Advisory Social Services) AND Chair of the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (BAAF)."

Interestingly in a nameless and remote African village where detailed school records were kept, it was discovered that of three categories of children; 1 school-attendant, attentive, high-grade students, and 2 middle-mixed students, and 3 school-refuser problem-children; that when a plague swept through the region, the only survivors at all were those of the school-refuser problem child category; because they had not been indoctrinated into civilised behaviour and knew instinctively how to fend for themselves in the wild; because 'they had no concept of the normal social rules'.

Sometime during the past decade I spoke with a friend whose ASBO badge of honour accessed her a free pass funded by the State during which her rebellious teenage nature was re-directed to a rather more socially constructive and exciting activity of working in a radio station established by social workers and police in the UK South Wales town of Pontypool, a facility where reprobates and deviants were given another chance at conformity and an incentive toward social awareness by playing their favourite songs (at the time this was blatantly the Goldie Looking Chain whose lyrics about dope smoking unifying the South Wales gangs into a community known locally as the Massive actually had the desired effect) and doing interviews about how the youth of today feel about life, what they do with their time here on the planet, etc. It was all going very well indeed until un-named reprobates stole the radio station equipment and sold it on the underground to raise money for their dope smoking. Another genius incentive by The System.

The potential, alternate titles for this blog were developed from contemplation of my interests and themes throughout these blogs, following from watching the classic cult movie PONTYPOOL by Tony Burgess, the first to be filmed in a trilogy based on his 1998 novel Pontypool Changes Everything

Sometime during the naughty noughties of the 21st century, a government department allocated me a regular slot in a music studio called 24/7 in Pontypool, a few A-roads deeper into the legendary SW Valleys than my Zooport city conapt.

In 1999 I had read Anthony Burgess literary classic 1962 novel A Clockwork Orange, which deals with language, literature, classical music, street gangs, degeneration of society and mockery of morality and order, ultraviolence and Mind Control. A Clockwork Orange is a novel within a novel, something akin to Philip K Dicks (also 1962) The Man In The High Castle

One thing I appreciated about ACO is that it is written entirely in a streetspeak which initially confuses the reader for several pages until, immersed into its world through an educational narrative, the language gradually becomes comprehensive; until by the end of the book the reader is fluent in [it].

"Nadsat is a vibrant, spontaneous mix of derived Russian, modified Slavic words, Cockney rhyming slang and hybrid words of Burgess’ own creation." chumble

Comparison between the readers shift of consciousness and the main protagonists eventual re-education as he is indoctrinated by state mind control technologies (reminiscent of the 1985 Terry Gilliam movie Brazil) is a direct contrast. This is also evident in the 1971 Stanley Kubric movie adaptation of the same title.

The writer of Pontypool Changes Everything (novel) and Pontypool (Movie Trilogy scripts)  took his pen name Tony Burgess from Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange). This speaks volumes for the literary pun's involved not only in the story itself as scripted, but the general surrounding themeology necessarily involved in such an examination of "understanding" the 'originally intended meaning' of a phrase, word or concept. Although the movie does not immediately go into it, we are dealing here with abstract memes and auto-suggestive programming. 

Pontypool (movie) deals with some serious issues, which regular readers of my blog will recognise to be amongst my fields of interest. Its opening speech made by the radio star Grant Mazzy...

  "Mrs French’s cat is missing. The signs are posted all over town. Have you seen Honey? Well, we have all seen the posters, but nobody has seen Honey the cat. Nobody, until last Thursday morning, when Miss Coulettepiscine swerved her car to miss Honey the cat when she drove across a bridge. Well this bridge, now slightly damaged, is a bit of a local treasure and even has its own fancy name; Pont du Flaque.

Now, Collette, that sounds like Coullotte, that’s Panty in French. And Cousine means Pool, Panty Pool. Flaque also means Pool in French so, Collette Piscine, in French Panty Pool drives over the Pont du Flaque, the Pontypool if you will, to avoid hitting Mrs French’s cat that’s been missing in Pontypool. Pont du pool. Pontypool. Pantypool. Pont du Flaque. What does it mean?

Well Norman Maylor, he had an interesting theory that he used to explain the strange coincidences in the aftermath of the JFK assassination. In the wake of huge events, after them and before them, physical details they spasm for a moment, they sort of unlock and when they come back into focus, they suddenly coincide in a weird way. Street names and birth dates and middle names, all kind of superfluous things appear related to each other, it’s a ripple effect. So, what does it mean? Well, it means something’s going to happen, something big.

But then, something’s always about to happen.”
" Grant Mazzy

...outlines that something special is happening here, that our routine and humble zombi-like trance state of perception is about to be shaken into a looser, more random method of associating, than we are habitually used to; that this shake-up will resolve itself into a different mental process, a different way of thinking, acting, behaving; that we will effectively become different people after the event, members of a society that has moved on from its current stagnation. Symbolic of this is our approach to language, not simply through the words we use but by the underlaying structure of the grammar connecting these concepts, the synaptic trains connecting nodes in our brains.

The introduction speech of Pontypool uses the same method seen in the intro to the 1999 family movie Magnolia by Paul Thomas Anderson, which also explores the same topic of apparently random, unrelated events coincidentally conforming to some type of inexplicable syncronicity that most definitely connects them, with several storylines and components of those storylines following the same pattern interpreted from several distinctly different angles, yet expressed by the same symbols to describe the intricacies resonating throughout several layers of meaning.

(Pause for breath)

This movie was released in Canada in 2008; predating the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting on 14.12.2012 in which 20 children and 6 adults were killed; an incident that followed from the Batman Shooter and apparent Remote Mind Control Victim Jamie Holmes, son of an American government agency whistleblower. Both incidents at a time during which the Obama office of the America Corporation are attempting to gain popular opinion regarding criminalizing guns so they can hasten in a Gun Control Nullification Bill, despite the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights empowering the People to legally bare arms and form militia to remove any rogue government, such as one that is attempting to undermine citizens Rights, much less attack its own people, or any people for that matter.

As passed by the Congress in 1791:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

It is an interesting situation. I was recently asked my own opinion on gun laws and so I quote; "guns do not kill people; people kill people" and that despite my living in a nation where I can get a gun more easily than I can get a gun license, which I can also do easily; I choose not to own a gun nor hang out with those who do, for whatever their purpose.

In Holland where guns are available and licensed, and so too is cannabis available and licensed for recreational and medical use; in the past decade there has been an increased social awareness and collective effort toward looking out for each other rather than creating fear or attacking one another; this has purportedly been repeatedly reported by all levels of society, who universally claim the effect of cannabis 'toward a fear free society' to be responsible for increased peacefulness in the community; the nation is closing its prisons because there are decreasing number of criminals and increasing number of empty prisons.

In the 2002 Michael Moore documentary film Bowling For Columbine, named after that two guys went bowling prior to shooting up a school, the film maker goes into a Canadian bank that were giving away free guns to anyone who opened a bank account with them; he asks the bank clerk as he is given his free gun "what is to stop me from using this to rob you?

The clerk says nothing...
