Police State?

As a supporter of the anarchist Occult movement – the sub-culture – known as the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) {1} and skeptical as I am about the draconian government measures in the UK that have led to an unprecedented disruption of society, {2} I was pleased to learn that the former Supreme Court judge Lord Sumption had criticized the enforcement of these measures by the police. {3}

Among other things, the police have been setting up roadblocks to check on what people traveling by road are doing and turning people back if they deemed their journey was “not essential”; they dyed the usually turquoise water of a lagoon black in a beauty spot to deter tourists from visiting {3} and they stopped and questioned people who were outdoors telling them that they could only exercise outdoors once a day for one hour only. The police even told a shop to stop selling Easter eggs as they were not “essential” supplies, and used a drone to spy on a couple walking with their dog in the countryside and then posted images of the couple on Twitter to warn people against undertaking “non-essential” travel.

Lord Sumption said that “this is what a police state is like, it is a state in which a government can issue orders or express preferences with no legal authority and the police will enforce ministers’ wishes,” that the measures taken by the government were based on hysteria; that “anyone who has studied history will recognise here the classic symptoms of collective hysteria,” and asked if the viral pandemic was serious enough to warrant putting most of our population into house imprisonment.

I and the minority like me who have studied both the data and human history have concluded it is not serious enough because most people who contract the virus will have mild symptoms and recover. Currently, the data shows that over 90% of people have recovered.

The criticism of Lord Sumption focused on the fact that the emergency laws introduced by the government do not give police the legal power to do what they have been doing.

Having studied history, I expect that the UK government will now give the police the legal power to tyrannically restrict the rights and freedoms of individuals and to enforce the policies which have created a society “in lockdown” based on the tyrannical Big Brother slogan that we the people should “stay at home”. Such legal power will deepen the rift between ordinary people, and the wealthy and the privileged political oligarchy. For instance, the wealthy and the politicos do not have to join long queues to buy “essential supplies” – they have assistants and flunkies to do that for them or they have the wealth and the privilege, the contacts, to make a deal with suppliers to supply them direct. They also have access to private medical care and assistance so that they, unlike ordinary folk, can always speedily contact a doctor and, if they become ill, they can go to a private clinic or have a private room in the private wing of a hospital.

           Maybe I’m wrong about the government now giving the police the legal power to enforce the restrictions that have created our current “lockdown” society. But history backs my judgment, especially as there is no sign by the people of active dissent, for, according to a spokesperson for the National Police Chiefs Council, the “vast majority of people are fully complying with the guidance and advice” and that “we will use enforcement” by issuing fines to those who do not obey and that those fines are “legally enforceable and non-payment will result in prosecution.” In other words, the police already have the power to arrest dissenters, prosecute them, and have them imprisoned for “non-payment of fines”.

Editorial Note: As reported in our declaration titled About This Blog – https://regardingdavidmyatt.wordpress.com/about/ – “given the rumors and allegations about Myatt and the occult group the order of nine angles we also publish some articles about the ONA/O9A, from a variety of sources.” The above, written by a self-declared supporter of the anarchist O9A movement, is one such article.
