I began this diary over a week after the London Bombings in a time that is called a "War on Terror" by the mainstream media. As every day passes, the world is fast becoming more surreal and Matrix-like.

As we career headlong into the technocratic darkness of a new era of planetary totalitarian rule I am moved to keep some kind of personal record of events for anyone who might trip up over them in the distant future ...

Mahatma Gandhi was once interviewed by the BBC when he was asked what he thought about civilisation. Pausing briefly, he replied that he thought it would be a good thing. As we travel through these distopian times, may Gandhi's vision of civilisation remain constantly alight in human hearts.
