The great Johnny Rotten

As I used to be a left-wing anarchist, many years ago, greatly influenced by the punk music revolution of the 1970s, and particularly by John Lydon Esquire, it was a great surprise to me a few years ago when I woke up one day to realise that I had journeyed around the entire discworld of politics, via communism, socialism, conservatism, and classical liberalism, all the way around to the other major form of anarchism; the anarcho-capitalist kind.

It would seem Mr Lydon has been on the same journey, hence his alleged recent support for Austrian Ron Paul, his reported libertarianism, and his splendid series of adverts, recently, for Country Life butter.

Watch the first twenty seconds of this embedded YouTube video to catch his great anti-nationalist and possibly anti-subsidy dialogue:

Q. Do I buy Country Life butter to support our hard-working British dairy farmers?

A. No. It's their career choice!

BTW, you may have noticed above that I didn't include "fascism" when described the Great Circle political journey I have been on. I didn't need to. It's automatically included within "socialism".
