DURING World War Two, when Winston Churchill was inspiring the British people to pull together, it really was possible for folk to conjure up the ‘bulldog’ spirit. There was a common enemy which dropped bombs across our nation, creating homelessness and devastation on a massive scale. It was possible, throughout all the mayhem, all the loss of loved ones, all the anxiety and fear, for people to come together and offer mutual support. Community centres sprang up offering hot drinks and food and it was, in a way, comforting to know that they were all in it together.
Of course the British people were subjected to propaganda but it was always aimed at maintaining morale and keeping spirits up. Churchill and his coalition government were well aware that if we were to survive the onslaught of German might (until the arrival of the USA into the war) the ordinary citizenry had to be convinced that however bad the war effort was going, a defeatist mentality had to be prevented. An early example of this positive propaganda was when the biggest defeat in British history, the Dunkirk evacuation, could be portrayed as a victory. It was indeed a remarkable achievement to manage the escape of 338,000 Allied soldiers, but a victory it was not. Kept quiet at the time was the fact that a significant number of soldiers were left behind to fall into the hands of the enemy. It is estimated that 40,000 troops were taken prisoner by the Nazi regime, with most ending up in prisoner-of-war camps to work in mines under inhumane conditions with very little to eat and drink. Many of these prisoners died owing to malnourishment and work-related hazards. None of this was reported at the time, nor were the extremely high casualty rates of our ‘Brylcreem Boys’ during the Battle of Britain. How would it affect morale if the number of dead and dying, the number of essential supply ships sunk and territories lost in resisting Nazi tyranny were screamed out from the BBC every day and night? I would call this ‘white propaganda’, the type used for a positive purpose, as opposed to ‘black propaganda’ which is the exact opposite.
Many people today are convinced that we are fighting World War Three, and I believe this to be true. Our common enemy is not another militarised nation. Our enemy is our own government and those who are in league with it, who seek to forge a world which is anti-Christian, anti-humanitarian, anti-freedom and without compassion or empathy. The future this small ‘elite’ see is one of concentrated wealth for themselves. A future with far fewer people to muddy the waters. A life where technology is blended with humanity in the form of transhumanism. A cashless society. An existence where control and order is maintained by constant surveillance and monitoring of our everyday lives. Those who oppose this dystopian vision will be increasingly marginalised and excluded.
Black propaganda has been the main weapon of war these past two and a half years. From the nonsense of a so-called ‘killer disease’ to the lockdowns of populations. The ‘do not resuscitate’ notices introduced into the care systems. Midazolam, that drug quietly used on many older people. The masks to frighten and harm people. Then of course the rollout of the experimental injections, which in spite of the deaths and injuries across the world are still being touted by our government and its controlled health system as being ‘safe and effective’ when nothing could be further from the truth.
The scare tactics continually morph into making us feel that it is we, as living, breathing and functioning humans, who are the problem. Our enemies believe that the planet cannot support the near-8billion of us. Our domestic livestock and food chain cannot sustain us so they must be eradicated. We must eat bugs. We are releasing too much CO2 into the atmosphere, therefore if we want to remain warm we have to accept huge increases in our energy bills. We must pay massive amounts for our food and get used to a life of hardship and sacrifice if we are to meet pointless and ridiculous emission targets. We must curb our driving and/or change to electric cars. We must give up our small businesses and forgo our jobs, all to the god of zero carbon, whilst the mammoth online enterprises with their growing fleets of low-paid drivers expand remorselessly. The media report on the so-called refugees who are aided by formerly cherished institutions such as the RNLI pictured bringing in boatloads of mostly young men (few women or children) who are billeted across our country in hotels at great expense. Putin is portrayed as an arch-enemy, whilst at the same time Volodymyr Zelensky, the former comedian and actor and now President of Ukraine, is touted as a ‘good guy’.
We have escalating food bank usage. ‘Warm’ places are springing up in neighbourhoods all around the country. Churches, community centres, libraries and other public places are offering hot drinks and free hot meals to those in dire need. This is WW2 revisited, but as Mrs Thatcher famously said, ‘the enemy is within’. If governments can be assessed by their propaganda, either white or black, then it is obvious to those of us who know the difference that we are indeed in the midst of a war and that our foe is those who govern us. The more this becomes widely known, the more the resistance will gain traction. Our enemy IS our government and it’s just a matter of time before the worst perpetrators of these war crimes are facing trial. It will undoubtedly happen, just as it did in November 1945. It can’t come soon enough for ourselves, our children and future generations.
