LAST week New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern received an honorary doctorate from Harvard University, hitting out in her acceptance speech against ‘keyboard warriors’ spreading disinformation: ‘When facts are turned into fiction, and fiction turned into fact, you stop debating ideas and you start debating conspiracy.’
Was she echoing George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four?
‘His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies . . . to repudiate morality while laying claim to it . . . to believe that the Party was the guardian of democracy.’
Ardern continued with a sordid use of imagery worthy of Orwell:
‘In my mind, when I read something especially horrific on my feed, I imagine it’s written by a lone person, unacquainted with personal hygiene practices, dressed in a poorly fitted superhero costume – one that is baggy in all the wrong places.’
Ardern said her speech was about kindness, presumably that special brand of kindness that is hard to recognise. As Hamlet said after berating his mother, ’I have to be cruel to be kind.’
Was Ardern’s brand of kindness at work when she deleted in a single night 33,000 comments on her feed informing her of personal stories of the adverse effects of Covid vaccination?
She might just as well have titled her speech: ‘I have sat on my hands and refused to read my emails. I insist that other MPs do the same. I am the sole source of truth. The world needs this.’
The historical antecedents of the rejection of protesters, writers and intellectuals as irrelevant, dirty, and dangerous spreaders of disease and disinformation certainly escaped Ardern and probably most Harvard graduates. The 1930s don’t feature much in modern curricula.
As mortality rises, as another study shows the immune system of the vaccinated exhibits dangerous antibody instability, as infections and hospitalisations among the vaccinated overtake the unvaccinated, we no longer need to speculate about where this is going. History tells us that it will end badly for many. An outcome of which Ardern appears to be determined to remain ignorant and condemn as conspiracy without discussion – by government decree.
But of course it is much worse than mere ignorance, as Sir Walter Scott said: ‘Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive.’
Ardern is a master of disinformation, coercion and suppression. Her continuing (but thankfully waning) popularity is a reflection of her practice of controlling the media through continuing large cash grants and revenue from saturation Covid vaccination advertising (aka old-fashioned bribery).
As a result, New Zealanders are dying in greater numbers not only unaware that this might have anything to do with Covid vaccination, but actually told by the government that it does not and cannot.
The cardiac wards are overflowing, but governments are not letting on. In the history of mass poisoning, there is no parallel in the world.
When is a crime not a crime? When the government says so. This happens when governments and the medical profession not only cannot be held accountable for their actions, but wilfully exploit this loophole to the full.
We have reached the apogee of the era of unaccountably disregarded consequences for which Ardern is the unapologetic international poster girl.
Her Harvard speech reportedly generated emotional rapture. She received a standing ovation. What does that mean for our future and the future of the world?
