Church and state.

I'm convinced Bakunin was right.

My criminology lecturer is a religious minister and a magistrate, he frequently mixs politics, religious dogma (he's notably anti-catholic in my opinion, dismissing them as semi-mindless reactionaries or dullards for believeing in things like the stigmata) and the law.

He's also very establishment stock, Eton or Cambridge anyone?, I wonder has there ever been a working class magistrate?

It's convinced me of the reactionary link between the political, economic and religious establishment and the state.

I got a wil' ol' slagging too, there in a seminar from him, apparently I never smile, my support of eugenics (which I regard as the study of the human animal with a view towards applying science and biological knowledge in such a way as to improve happiness and health and better the social good, it's nothting to do with nazi crap or racial dimensions or anything, damnit!!) was cast in a sinister and bad light and the fact that I persistantly wear a hat seemed to be a real annoyance to him aswell (well he can bet now that there wont be a day that I'm in his company without a hat now!!).

I'm not taking it personal though because it is political.
