The Diverse Politics of Starvation

The man you see in this picture is named Len Miskulin. He is wasting away for lack of food, and the sign to the left of him reads: "On hunger strike, 59, homeless, robbed of all assets."

Len Miskulin (native of Croatia) is a father who has been denied contact with his children for ten years. Here we see him encamped on the green across from Westminster in London.

The green did I say? Well no, looks like it is the brown! Puts me in mind of a neglected city park in Yakima, Washington, USA, in the blast-furnace heat of an eastern Washington summer.

And right now, somebody is plaintively asking: "But. . but . . what's this got to do with feminism??"

Ahem!
Anyway, I am grateful to George Rolph in England for sending me this photo—along with his accompanying article, which talks a lot about Len Miskulin and . . . other people.

George's article is a bit lengthy, so I have posted it in a supplementary blog in order not to overshadow the proportions of the present blog.

You'll want to read George's article. Trust me, you will want to read it:

This man's plight should be be broadcast on every newscast of the main and non mainstream media but, feminists and their ilk/supporter's would never authorize such. They do not see/consider him a victim because he possesses both a x chromosome and a penis. Shame is on them.

He is a victim of both the misandry bubble.

It should be broadcast on the net.

TV and all media are dying.

The net is the way. Send an e-mail to all your friends, asking them to do the same, publish it on facebook, twitter, everywhere.
It will spread like fire.

They can start by getting rid of the monarchy, we did.

@MasculistMan:

The Monarchy nowadays in Great Britain is purely ornamental; it's not where the real power flows from. So getting rid of the monarchy would do practically nothing to resolve the problems which plague that country.

And it might even do some harm, since the Monarchy is a symbol of history and tradition and so on, and it has a lot of sentimental value in the psychology of the nation. If you just got rid of the Monarchy "just like that", it could cut the nation off from its roots in a way that would be traumatic.

You need to go easy on stuff like that . .

The political scumbags who have the REAL power in England are the ones that need to get hung from lamp posts, NOT the Queen, etc, etc.... :(

Not to say that the monarchy is squeaky-clean in all of this.

If the Queen spoke out forcefully on certain issues, a lot of those politicians would feel pressured to fall into line with her moral authority.

From what I know, the Queen doesn't speak out much.

But ending the monarchy would not help the situation, for if the Queen was gone, then FOR SURE she would never speak out.
