ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I DO NOT RECOGNISE THE AUTHORITY OF THE STATE.
I use the term 'government' as a collective noun for a gang of politicians. A politician is a stranger who made a career choice; I have no reason to believe they serve our interests above their own. I have not voted for 20 years because I cannot, in good conscience, put my name to the actions of the State.
I am not a doctor, virologist or epidemiologist. I’m no academic, politician nor economist. I’ve never had a spiritual revelation; I can’t say if the devil is real or not. I’m not a dietary expert, nutritionist or physiotherapist. I’m not clairvoyant, sensitive or particularly perceptive.
As soon as I begin to understand something, someone somewhere presents a contradiction. I don’t know which website to read. Which journalist, academic or scientist to depend on. Whether a doctor is being honest or corrupted by greed. I have no idea who to look to, what to think or even how I feel anymore…
I don't believe I should rely on another man, woman or child to look after my needs. I don’t wish to depend on 'experts'. I may choose to ask for help, but I shouldn’t be forced to count on anybody for anything. Nor should I feel burdened with the health of an entire society. Managing one’s own mind and body is plenty for one man.
My name is Stuart Farr, but my cat says Meow when she wants me. You could make whatever sound you like if you speak of me - it's non of my business.
