The History and

Principles of Mexism

Mexism was conceived as long ago as 1846, intended as a movement to combat, and provide opposition to, the process of industrialisation and mechanisation; a process which the movem­ent's mentor, Kevin Godfrey, knew could only lead to the discovery of atomic structure, which would in turn inevitably lead to the dev­elopment of nuclear weapons, and the ultimate destruction of the planet 'Earth'. The opposit­ion was to involve media infiltration, and subsequent public illumination. Unfortunately, Godfrey died of Parkinson's disease two days after starting the movement, before any other people could be recruited. However, this was not before Godfrey could write a book, "The principles of Mexism", the manuscript of which was discovered by a certain Mr. David Barring­ton 33 years later in 1879, when he happened to stumble across the hermit's cave in which Godfrey had lived. Mr Barrington, on seeing the explosiveness of the document, immediately sold his house to pay for the book's publicat­ion. Unfortunately, not one person saw fit to buy it, and in a fit of desperation, Barringt­on drove his car, together with himself and all 2500 copies of "Principles", over his loc­al cliff.


By some strange quirk of fate, one single copy of the book found its way to France, managing to escape from Neptune's kingdom. A French historian by the name of Martin Callomon picked up the novel, but threw it away, not understanding the English language.


36 years later in 1915, the rubbish tip on which the book still lurked came under German occupation, being on the Eastern side of the trench line. A German soldier, by the name of Paul Thompson, found the book whilst deserting and kept it. He was captured by the German military police, and returned to the front, where he was shot for his crimes and left, dead, in no-mans’ land. A week later, the British troops made an advancement. A British looter found the book, and took it back to Britain with him when he was discharged, inj­ured, in early 1916. There, he put it in his library and forgot about it. He died 26 years later, in 1942.


After he died, his nephew, Mr. Harry Webb, took all of the books and sold them to the owner of a second-hand bookshop in Queens' Road, Watford, for a total of two shillings. It was to be another 37 years before the bookseller, a Mr. Quentin Armadillo, finally managed to get rid of the copy of "Principles" selling it to a 16-year old, impressionable young man called Paul, an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh, for 10p. Paul read the book, and found it extremely enlightening. He resolved to pursue and reactivate the ideals of Mexism, updating them to be relevant and influential for today's decadent twenty-first century society. However, he decided to make music instead!
