England, April 2020. The other day, I was in a long queue at my local ‘supermarket’ store waiting to be allowed in. The footway where we queued was helpfully marked every 2 metres (around six feet, six inches) reminding us to obey the government diktat of “social distancing”. Once inside, after a long wait, the same markings, the same reminders, with staff observing whether or not we meekly obeyed the rules. Some old gentleman – who looked like an archetypal English eccentric – did not and was immediately told by a security guard to observe the rules and “be patient”. So the slow moving people in the queue – fenced in by barriers which dictated how we moved around the store – make their steady way to gather the necessary essentials. Essentials selected, they had to queue again, six feet six inches apart, before being directed by staff to a particular checkout.
Such docility; such people to watch over us and ensure we complied to various government diktats. It was as if we were part of some nation-wide experiment.
Once back home and indulging in a welcome alcoholic beverage, the television presented another half-hour of government propaganda disguised as “news” with government politicians, and “experts”, reminding us about “staying safe” and about “social distancing” and about the gravity of the situation, and with members of the public – from their homes of course and as “talking heads” – spouting about how they were following government demands to “stay safe”, remain at home, and observe the diktat about “social distancing”. Several of these “talking heads” offered advice about how we and our family could cheerfully endure “staying at home” amid the government-imposed lockdown.
There followed a normal television programme, but interspersed (this was a commercial television channel, with ads) with government “shorts” (propaganda) containing the new mantras of government: about staying safe and “protect the NHS”. One commercial television channel even had, in the top left corner of the screen, the government message to “stay at home”.
Outside, on the streets, normal social life has been suspended, with no date set for when the normal life of Western society will be resumed. There are regular police patrols to ensure that there are no public gatherings of three or more people and that the diktat about “social distancing” is being obeyed.
This is all very dystopian. All very Nineteen Eighty-Four. All grimly Soviet. With docile citizens obeying government dicktats because they have, apparently, been brainwashed into believing it is for their own good and for the good and the safety of their society.
Now it has emerged that the social media platform Facebook has – following government pressure – banned posts and messages from people and groups who were organizing or trying to organize or who were promoting protests against government diktats such as “social distancing”, lockdown, and the ban regarding public gatherings. This is censorship by any other name.
Meanwhile, in Britain, it seems the government driven social experiment to make its citizens docile, compliant, and test its power and the effectiveness of its propaganda, has succeeded. No politicians, of whatever flavour – Liberal or Labour or Tory – have spoken out about the tyrannical government dicktats and about its pervasive propaganda. No mainstream newspaper, no television news channel, no independent journalist, has questioned or dissented from those dicktats and the now all-pervasive government propaganda.
No one – no politician, no newspaper, no television news channel, no independent journalist – has pointed out the utter hypocrisy of those who lead the government and who now regale us with propaganda. Those politicians, being wealthy and privileged, do not have to queue outside shops. They and their families do not have to choose between paying rent and eating sufficient to sustain them. They have not had their livelihood – their income from work – taken away. They do not have to live in some small inner-city flat with young, bored, restless children.
On the aforementioned “news” programme I watched and heard some politician tell us what we should be doing and why. Yet the politician had never done a day of real work in his life. He was never a First Responder; never a manual labourer; never an artist or artisan struggling to make ends meet; never in the armed forces; never in a war zone.
He was never, as an adult, short of money, because he was a journalist and then a professional politician spouting rhetoric and is now a wealthy man, and of course like his leader Boris Johnson (the mischling) declares that he is a “proud Zionist” and a friend of media tycoon, and Zionist, Rupert Murdoch.
It seems only a few of us – a few of we, the people – comprehend the situation and are spreading our dissent – of rebellion, of revolution, now or in the future, and our message of a different government-free way of life – person to person, in real time, in real life; or via messages such as this.
What does all this mean for our future, for the civilization of the West, and for we as a folk?
