A key purpose of All Souls Day (the second of November) is to remember all those dead souls who need our rememberance. This is a very democratic contrast with the preceding All Saints Day where the focus is on more illustrious people.
George Bernard Shaw died at the age of 94 on All Souls Day in 1950 from renal failure. This was a result of injuries sustained when he fell while pruning a tree. Only two people have ever won both a Nobel Prize for literature and an Oscar. Shaw was the first. Bob Dylan was the second.
One of Shaw’s many famous peices of thought is this idea: “Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.”
Modern western societies are now trashing very hardwon liberties out of fears which I believe constitute mass psychosis.
Lest we forget that life based on knowledge is always better than living in fear.

Dr Aloysius Medusus Lord, POB, a world leading Physician of the Brain and a supporter of Melbourne Football Club today, has pronounced Australia’s former Sporting Capital, Melbourne, dead of unnatural causes.
Melbourne hosted the legendary 1956 Olympics. Melbourne hosts the Australian Open tennis tournament. Every year Melbourne also hosted the Australian Grand Prix which was one of the most courageous death defying sporting events of all time until everyone got too scared of catching cold to hold it anymore.
In a world first on death certificates, Dr Lord (a passionate Melbourne Football Club supporter in all situations after God’s own team has been eliminated from the competition) asserts that Coronavirus was not involved but lockdowns were the cause of death.
Dr Lord is sending this certificate to Australian Federal Police because he says they are the best placed policing body to bring those responsible for this unnecessary death to justice.
Dr Lord says that if the Western Bulldogs had won the 2021 grand final his diagnosis would have been the same. “As in most things in Australian life” writes Dr Lord, “it’s not what actually happened that matters. What really counts is our sacred right to get drunk and have fun together afterwards. Lockdowns clearly destroy that most fundamental of human rights.”
