We’re the losers in this global game of charades

-

IT’S obvious that whoever you vote for these days you get Blair. Style over substance, and what substance there is, is entirely horrible. Government looks the part on TV, but behind the scenes, in what we plebs know as ‘reality’, things aren’t looking good at all.

When you think about Blairism you’d expect to get Tony, not Lionel. Yet it is to the tight-trousered titan of light entertainment that we must turn to understand the abject mess made of the world by our leaders.

This is a game of charades we are compelled to inhabit, where our leaders make signs to the audience whilst the economy, our national culture and everything of value is pushed to the edge of the abyss. For a long time I have resisted the urge to admit the notion of a planned collapse, not because I think our leaders insufficiently wicked but because I did not think they were up to it. In a sense, both arguments are true.

The World Economic Forum is obviously up to no good, and perhaps the Bond villain Schwab really means to destroy everyone’s way of life to suit his utterly degraded fantasies. I would not argue any longer against his intentions.

Covid saw more money printed than ever before, immediately devaluing the money most of us earn to pay bills increasingly out of reach. Wealth transfer to the billionaires and corporations took place on a record scale. The deranged raft of sanctions on Russia is a scheme so crackpot that it is akin to shooting yourself in the feet before cutting off your legs.

The world no longer makes sense except as a programme of chaos, whether deliberate or accidental the product is the same. Our lives are being downgraded, permanently. This takes place against a robust Russia, a bemused India, against 41 African nations and Brazil who voted against ceding control to the World Health Organisation. Of course, the detonation of the West effectively hands supremacy to China.

What is the game plan here? How are the empty if telegenic postures of politicians going to convince the Russians and Chinese to sabotage their own economies? The best explanation I have heard is that the whole crazy scheme of Schwab was cooked up in the 1970s, when China was a backwater. Covid allowed for the plan to be enacted a little before time – a golden opportunity for the toxic technocrats to seize the wheel and steer us all off a cliff. Yet the fact that China, Russia and so on will still be standing afterwards makes no sense at all.

I finally admit there was a plan, but with the caveat that, it now being revealed, the people in charge simply could not make it work. Whether this is decried as a conspiracy theory or not, the effects are the same. How is the management going to get us out of this mess? There is no plan. Not for anything. Nothing is working as it should; the chaos seems to be out of control. Our vaunted Fourth Estate is baying for the blood of Boris Johnson, but who is next? We have already sent in the clowns. It is time for the circus to pack up.

They are out of ideas and the Not-So-Great Reset has been derailed by an epic miscalculation. When the West moved its manufacturing to China, perhaps it was presumed the Chinese would become aimless, passive consumers. I don’t think that worked out very well and now the plan, like some tanker bringing Russian oil to India so the West can buy ‘Indian oil’, cannot be turned around. Like everything else in politics, it is a charade.

Russia has taken an area of land the size of Italy, which includes all the heavy industry and much of the grain production of Ukraine. It controls almost all of the Black Sea. It is not going to give this back now. At the beginning, Russia demanded Crimea and autonomy for the two breakaway republics. Two months ago it wanted Crimea and all of Lugansk and Donetsk. If Ukraine continues to win at this rate there will be little of value left. Meanwhile, the sanctions are destroying the economies of the West, as President Biden continues to blame Putin for the stagflation brought about by Covid money printing and the disastrous policy of sanctioning your own food and energy supply.

Propaganda and misdirection prevent any of the real issues gaining traction. The country has no effective borders, no control over the value of its currency, no vision for what comes next, save for a sense of impending doom growing in us all.

What is the best way to force change without beckoning a crackdown? I think it is time to accept that whatever covenant or social contract we thought we had is now broken. Gesture politics is a game played by the powerful to gain and retain control, nothing more. The greater part of the cost of your fuel and your food is VAT and tax. The government is making more money by robbing us.

We are ruled by a permanent bureaucracy whose interests are directly opposed to our own. None of the institutions deserves any respect. In whatever way we can, we must refuse cooperation with the machine which is concerned with its own survival, at the expense of literally everything and everyone else.
