I went to see a friend and we met up at Audley End house near Saffron Walden. It is a lovely garden and classic English country house.
The gardens were designed by Capability Brown, the house is old. I didn’t get to look inside because after walking the dog the house was shut to new visitors. It’s quite an impressive building.
We, as a country, like to visit these places. We like to keep them as part of our history and they are definitely part of our history. The problem is houses like this are part of the problems of our current too.
These buildings serve to act as reminders that the people are subservient to the masters. We are to do as we are told and assume that those in charge are looking after us. This building is built to impress but also oppress. The modern visitor has little thought for the structure of society and the machine it has to keep everyone in their place.
The leaders lead and rule and at the same time those below that level are constantly told of our position and that we should do as we are told. The upper classes assume the position of lord of the manor while the rest of us live in shit. There is a perception that the leaders and chiefs will do what is good for the whole of society. But the vast majority of them don’t. Look at the current political leaders. They will do whatever they can to maintain their power at the expense of the country and population as a whole.
I look at these houses and churches and see the waste of money. The consumption of the planet for the greed of the few. The repression of the masses for the stability of a family.
Viva la revolution!
