THE past 20 months have been shocking. Regrettably, from what we have heard this week from our faux bumbling Prime Minister and his array of grotesque bag carriers, there is more to come.
Uppermost among the great many assaults that have been inflicted on us is the forced realisation of just how fragile our way of life is. Our previously comfortable, open, and relatively free society has been disrupted by a nascent totalitarian state that seeks draconian control over how we act, think, and feel. As Joni Mitchell sang: ‘Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone.’
The most depressing truth of all is that many people, the majority in fact, appear unable or unwilling to recognise just how much has changed – how much has been taken from us – just what is gone.
Democracy, nothing less, has been beaten and left bloodied, waiting the coup de grâce to be delivered by our government. (Read the UN definition of democracy here, just out of morbid curiosity)
The population has been mesmerised by the monotonous, repetitive siren voices accompanying the great convulsion. Every government agency, almost every politician, every spokesman for the NHS, every academic, ‘celeb,’ and most nauseatingly, every miserable bought- and- paid- for mainstream journalist, has spewed forth an unrelenting diet of propaganda about Covid-19, with little or no challenge, and only a tangential connection to the truth.
There has been almost total unanimity of message: Sinister, programmed, scripted. Even today, as we face another cut to our civil liberties, no alternative is permitted media time – therefore it does not exist.
Anyone who puts their head above the parapet to question the dominant narrative is accused and found guilty of being a Covid denier, a conspiracy theorist, and a purveyor of deadly misinformation.
These outliers are ostracised, and in other countries rounded up and ‘transported to a place of safety’ as Paul Collits described in TCW. The Covid mantra is powerful and consistent … comply or else.
The erstwhile Free World has been captured and people subjected to the psychological equivalent of waterboarding. They are drowning in fear, some losing their minds in quiet isolation, others self-medicating with their drug of choice – booze, cigarettes, food, cannabis, cocaine, Netflix, porn, football, or the shopping channels – it’s all there to dull the senses.
Still the terror breaks through. Fear of a manufactured ‘novel virus’, born of hubris and scientific overreach; fear of its irresistible morphing and variation; fear of one another – of strangers, and worse, fear of those close to us.
Many fear the still experimental ‘vaccines’ – their long-term impacts, the lottery of neurological damage, clots, disability, heart attacks and strokes, and myocarditis among fit young men. They fear the wicked harms jabs may do to old people, to children, babies, and to the unborn, never to be born. Just collateral damage, as Madeleine Albright might say.
There is a real, palpable and long-lasting concern of losing what we still have: Loved ones, our country, jobs, incomes, savings, communities, our children’s opportunities, our sanity, and our bodily autonomy. When you talk to people in the street, not as a YouGov pollster , they shake their heads in wonder and disbelief that we are so reduced as a nation: Anger is just below the surface.
We know now that our leaders have sold us out. That we lack brave politicians, clear-eyed journalists, independent judiciary, uncorrupted physicians, and right-thinking police officers. We ask, where are the statisticians and the researchers – is anyone in the mainstream media going to publish what the data on the Yellow Card system are showing? Where is the Army? Just who is to stand up for British people?
We have made a poor bargain with our elected representatives and from cowardice, greed, or lust for power they have betrayed us. We were naïve to have trusted such moral pygmies, now Big Pharma and the global elite have bought us as cattle at auction and they relish our continued cull.
In the Commons, Sajid Javid, the latest Minister for Covid, announced that he is taking ‘balanced and proportionate steps to control the new Omicron variant’ by the reimposition of border controls and the return of magic thinking (mask wearing in shops and public transport and more jabs) ‘for just as long as it takes to get it under control’.
The latest ‘dangerous new variant of concern,’ symptoms described by Dr Angelique Coetzee, who identified it, as ‘extremely mild,’ has encouraged Jenny Harries, chief executive of the UK Health Security Agency, to return to treading the boards, advising us not to socialise if we ‘did not have to’ in the run-up to Christmas,
The Government scientific advisory group Sage, quite predictably, continues to advocate that we all work from home, except for the Ocado delivery drivers. The yoke is being lifted on to the oxen once more.
Hidden in the excitement of 14 cases of ‘Omicron’ nationally, our jailers have reduced the gap between jabs and boosters to three months. How does that make any sense? Ah yes, regular quarterly predictable income and increased profit flows for our chums at Pfizer (other poisons are available).
As the American journalist and cultural critic H L Mencken said in 1918: ‘The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.’
Coming up to Covid Christmas number two, we reject this latest fantastic set of lies. We want our future back, Mr Johnson, not the immiseration and oppression that you envisage for us. The jig is up; we see through your game.
