The controlled demolition of society, named COVID-19, places us at the gates to hell, somewhere between freedom and slavery, fighting a battle for humanity against a government who have become the occupational hazard of being human.
In little under eight months, those who go under the sobriquet of protector of individual freedom from tyranny, have taken on the mantle of oppressor. Turning on the people of this nation, taking legal control over our lives, removing our personal agency, dictating where we can go and who we can meet. Irrespective of these historic infractions on our freedom, we obediently roll over rather than disturb the hornet’s nest and industriously heed the call of showman politicians who have enlisted us, unaware the culpability has been passed from the overlords to the victims of their tyranny.
‘We are all in this together’ is another blandishment from this Prime Minister. Despite his inner circle ruling this country by ministerial decree since March. Rolling out the most injurious legislation in history, without recourse to scrutiny, debates or votes in Parliament, engagement with civil society, or indeed risk assessment of the impact of these laws, which even the lawmakers do not obey. In the time-honoured tradition of one rule for those making the rules, another rule for everyone else.
Following a handful of idle sessions at the House of Commons, liberties older than Parliament itself have been confiscated on the basis of a disease with an average mortality age of 82. What has been achieved on this basis by the architects of this apocalypse is not only reprehensible, it is ingenious. Uniting millions behind the cult of COVID. Transcending decades of the usual propaganda, behavioural engineering, the manufacturing of consent. Mitigating the expense of war, terrorism, or whatever chicanery has been at the disposal of those in power, grooming us towards a controlled destination. In this particular watershed, a permanent checkpoint of our democracy to issue the terms of our servitude, called the biosecurity state.
The Trojan Horse of COVID
Admittedly, this is not your standard issue-industrialised, globalised takeover of society. Why would it be? Fascism has come a long way since Hitler. Nowadays the general population is too smart, would recognise the face of tyranny and not this garden variety imposter. Or so we think. Besides, ‘without the Allies landing on the beaches of Normandy, how could we be under siege?’ We reassure ourselves before crawling back into captivity in a comforting lockstep with less fortunate nations. Adaptation is a wonderful thing, but maybe not for us. In keeping with the opaque nature of this political confidence trick, this is not your typical dictatorship either. Instead it’s Middle England’s answer to a veritable military junta, carrying the letters of marque from Her Majesty’s Government to legitimize its piracy, courted by the ivory towers of science and medicine, and extolled as a force for good by a population sleepwalking towards the edge of disaster. Meanwhile society burns ritualistically to the ground. But that’s ok, we can build back better from the ashes. Or so we are told.
This journey towards the wrong side of history is made possible by subtle nuances of control, confusion and fear that most fail to comprehend. Triggering the wholesale abandon of logic and reason to a seemingly benevolent cult who offer protections against our day of reckoning. The threat of death strikes an uncomfortable chord and our ability to adapt makes us low-hanging fruit. But who could have predicted fascism would look so ordinary from inside the Panopticon? Once we’re plugged into a shared digital common, a state of emergency can rapidly contaminate consensus, until collectivism flourishes like wildfire. Meanwhile, measured perspective becomes an act of war. Who wants to be on the wrong side of the cult, when those failing to bend a knee to COVID, are, by disassociation, guilty, with blood on their hands? This entire process works because the fertile ground for any dictatorship to prosper is fear. A state of emergency unites us with common purpose. And what could be more compelling than a pandemic? Death, like communism, levels the playing field of all distinctions. Regardless of class, age, gender, or race, death is indiscriminate. Reaffirming the normalcy of our departure from one place of relative safety to another is straightforward enough. Safety is, after all, relative to the setting of the emergency. The higher the alert level, the safer we feel in the herd, regardless of small matters such as the number of prison bars holding us captive. In a strong-enough current people are like driftwood trying to dock in the reeds. Remember the motto of this thing from the outset: ‘The New Normal?’
The pandemic hunkers down on the Blitz Spirit of the British people. Boris plays Churchill, Vallance and Whitty flank the General, and the propagandists ensnare a nation under mass-hypnosis, who muzzle their senses and clap for their captors. Important matters of front-line battle are the prerogative of Johnson et al, who work round the clock to dampen, depress and demoralise the public spirit, criminalising just about every form of human expression conceivable. In this Kafkaesque rendition of reality, an arsenic cough, the assassin’s handshake are the crimes against humanity, while our personal hygiene and voluntary associations stand before the Nuremberg Trials.
COVID is the greatest operation to divide and rule in human history. Factionalising family members, separating each from their powers of reason, and weaponizing society as the Black Death, whose panacea is an unrelenting assault on the basic joys of life and other misguided freedoms, that we are told, are the agents of our suffering.
The cautionary tale from history should teach us that surrendering of our rights out of fear of some existential threat is never a good idea. Typically it’s a threat hatched by a government looking to cross the Rubicon from protector of individual liberty to regulator of the psycho-sociosexual. Dictating who we may and may not procreate with is yet another compulsion of cult ideology. Which should be enough to convince most we are living under tyranny. Or so it would seem.
On the contrary, those with front row tickets, prostrated in self-imposed exile, bribed with government kickbacks, and disguising their own fear of death as compassion for others, would disagree. Claiming (amongst other platitudes), ‘’It’s only for another six months… Even if it means saving just one life… 2020 is the year that was cancelled… You wear a seatbelt but not a face covering…”. This is despite the overwhelming body of evidence that we are not the victims of indiscriminate, extemporaneous encroachments on our liberties, but rather our rights are being permanently dismantled through a carefully planned sequence of events, where the previous imposition makes way for the next tightening of the screw. The volitional guidelines for the hospitality industry to track and trace our movements has predictably been ramped up to mandatory. Anticipating the next iteration in this sequence: gun-to-your-head contact tracing across all interfaces of the economy, our workspaces, public transport, international flights and supermarkets. Or, for those refusing to comply, then it’s ‘no ticket, no laundry.’ And the emergence of COVID-apartheid.
In the end, if you failed to push back against contact tracing, you stand no chance of resisting mandatory vaccinations. Until the megalomaniacs in power, with their ulterior motives and god-complexes, finally claim regulatory control over our bodies. And make no mistake, our minds will be next.
The Vanguards of Public Health
The controlled demolition of our economy was predicated under the banner of protecting our NHS. When paradoxically, our NHS was built to protect us (not the other way around). As a result, thousands of terminally ill patients continue to be denied critical care. Notice the word ‘continue.’ There have been soaring deaths for Alzheimer’s and heart disease. Doctors surgeries remain closed, while off-licenses have been on-call. Comparable to shutting down the military during wartime and plying the soldiers with booze. More recently hospitals are turning away sick children, to make space for potential COVID cases. Notice the word ‘potential.’ Are you beginning to get the picture?
While it may be “no measure of good health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society” the general population continues to pretend everything is unexceptional, instead of confronting the elephant in the room and raising a red flag to the proclivities of this government, as they strip even our senior citizens of their basic rights. Pensioners kept under house arrest, in understaffed and underfunded nursing homes, prohibited from seeing their loved ones for 12-months; as you would expect, many have lost the will to live.
Where is the public outrage?
Remember, we put up the collateral of our freedom to protect our vulnerable ranks. We carried the yoke of self-imposed exile, unemployment, separation from family members, masking up in public, to protect just one demographic: our senior citizens. This government, meanwhile, matched our stake by forcing the elderly out of hospitals and into care homes at the height of this pandemic. If we were indeed a healthy society, then before the ink had dried on the Do Not Resuscitate Orders, the following questions would have been promptly answered by Public Health England.
What social group was more at risk? Who did we spare hospital capacity for? Who do we continue to surrender our freedom for? Has the corpse of Harold Shipman been dug up and placed at the head up the Department of Health? Or has this been about something else all along? (All graphs can be clicked to enlarge.)
By this government’s own projections, lockdown will eventually kill more healthy people than COVID. The cure is unquestionably worse than the disease:
On 31st October the Prime Minister consulted the augers, adjusted the setting of his wrecking ball to ‘round two’ before unleashing another payload of devastating missiles against the posthumous germ. Using the very same blind sightedness that catastrophically failed the first time around. Indeed, those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.
We must therefore ask: what is driving these devastating policies towards the brink of societal collapse?
With the word ‘overwhelmed’ passed around like a bad penny in the political pulpits, are we seeing an increase in hospital admissions? Not in the slightest. A & E attendances for acute respiratory infection are running at 75% capacity, compared to the baseline, and there were significantly more respiratory-related hospital admissions in Dec 2019, pre-COVID. This fact alone would suggest the government is a prevaricating, deceiving, misleading, fraudulent, tellers of untruths.
Are we seeing a surge in deaths? Certainly not. The second wave is as fashionably late as the Prime Minister’s 4pm press conference on 31st October. And according to ONS data, in week 41 deaths were just 1.5% above the five-year average (in line with population growth). COVID accounted for only 4.4% of all deaths versus influenza and pneumonia at 16.3%. Even more alarming is this paper from the Oxford University Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM), which reveals COVID-19 was not the underlying cause of death for 30% of all recent deaths attributed to the disease. 30%. Nevertheless, Johnson has pandered to the opposition (for want of a better word) and delivered another lockdown. Despite forty thousand scientists and medical professionals imploring an end to this institutional madness. Yet, deaf to common reason and without compunction, our political leaders continue to ride roughshod over the democratic principle when there has always been another way. Look at Sweden:
What’s more, when we overlay deaths per million in Sweden with the UK, it is clear the virus follows its own trajectory, regardless of ineffective lockdowns.
Despite this data being readily available to the government and SAGE we continue on this crooked path towards the brink of collapse.
When we examine hospital admissions, COVID deaths, and excess deaths for this time of year, there is nothing exceptional in the data. Therefore, is COVID a moderately bad flu season? Well, according to ONS, up to 23rd October 2020, there were 56,073 excess deaths over 9 months in England and Wales (although only 45,224 of those were Covid deaths). Whereas in the winter of 2017/2018 – over a shorter period of 3 months – there were 50,100 excess deaths. [HD: it should be noted that what ONS means by ‘excess’ in ‘excess winter deaths’ is something quite different to what ‘excess’ means in relation to the general all-cause mortality figures, but it’s a reasonable proxy for it: more here.] 2017-2018 saw the highest excess deaths since winter 1975/1976:
Finally, Rick Hayward, writing for Hector Drummond has extrapolated all-cause winter-spring mortality going back to 1993, and adjusted for population growth, 2019-20 is in fact the eighth worst season of the last twenty-six:
The rules for clinicians on defining COVD cases clearly states the ‘presence of symptoms.’ But contrary to these rules, more than 80% of those tested on the day had no symptoms. So why then is this government counting non-symptomatic cases as cases? Why do they refuse to publish or even acknowledge the impact of false positives? And importantly, why is COVID is the most politicised cause of death in history?
To answer these questions it is important to understand that those driving this controlled demolition forward have skin in the game. Especially Her Majesty’s Government. The UK is the number one investor in immunology amongst all G7 countries. The British Society for Immunology is the largest in Europe. The life sciences industry, of which immunology is an important part was worth £70 billion to the UK economy in 2019. The UK is the biggest country donor to the World Health Organisation. And the UK is the number one funder of the vaccine alliance, GAVI. It is well understood that a global mandatory vaccination program would be one of the world’s most lucrative commodities. Do the math: the average cost of a vaccine x 7.8 billion people x every year of their lives.
Immunisation therefore presents a golden opportunity for Britain to restore its legacy of empire, through a quasi-imperialistic meddling in the affairs of developing nations, with a global mandatory vaccination program that would provide the old empire with significant influence over global health and education policy. Despite the government’s own admission that the UK’s influenza vaccine was just 15% effective for 2017-18. Would you pay the full price for a car that was 15% operational? Or a lunch that was 15% food? No. But if those products were mandatory you would have no choice.
The Great Reset
No indictment of the pandemic response would be complete without a mention of the technocratic takeover of our cultural commons, predicated by unelected decision-makers, through programs like The Great Reset, which the UK has been onboard with since at least 2017, when Matt Hancock was Minister for Digital. In 2019 the British government laid out its roadmap towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution in this white paper. Notice this statement:
It is characterised by a fusion of technologies – such as artificial intelligence, gene editing and advanced robotics – that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological worlds.
With a background in digital rather than health it is no coincidence that our masquerading Minister of Health, Matt Hancock, is at the helm of the greatest public health response in history. A role that reprises many of the technologies Hancock was bringing to market during his tenure as Minister for Digital, which COVID provides the necessary bluster to implement, including contact tracing, immunity passports, and other apparatus of digital control and surveillance being rolled out under the Joint Biosecurity Centre, foreshadowing the merger of human, digital and smart grid.
Another stooge doing the unofficial bidding for a global elite towards a Great Reset is our own affable dictator, Johnson. A disciple of the cult of technocracy since his address to the UN in 2019. So committed in fact, he has ruled out, under any circumstances, a return to normal, ever. Regardless of how the pandemic pans out, beyond the vicissitudes of his crystal ball.
According to the vision of the Great Reset, by 2030 ‘we will own nothing; all products will become services.’ By which time we will witness the seismic displacement of billions of workers worldwide, with the overhaul of cheaper artificial intelligence to replace arbitrary and costly human labour. People and communities will be sacrificed at the corporate altar as a corporation’s entitlement to higher margins takes precedence over a person’s right to work and maintain financial independence. Humanity will become auxiliary to the rights of nature, with the alignment of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Climate Change and the SDGs of the UN’s Agenda 2030. A kind of world communism will pervade the social spectrum and turn world citizens into a kind of one size fits all, while those at the top of the pyramid will benefit exclusively from a capitalist system gone rogue. The social credits system, that scores citizens on their ‘behaviour’, is already a dystopian nightmare for millions of Chinese citizens, who are prohibited from travelling on trains and aeroplanes. This apparatus of social control is already being trumpeted in Australia’s political pulpits as the exit plan for COVID, should Australian citizens wish to re-enter the economy themselves in 2021. Ripples of this new world order are fast approaching the shores of mainland Britain, with the Universal Living Wage system under trial runs in British Cities.
As the Jackals Circle
It is therefore no surprise that the Coronavirus Act was renewed on 30th September by the shills at Westminster. Despite the drum-beating of apparently dissenting MPs, in the end all these mutineers (in name only) could muster was a kind of vague gentlemen’s agreement on votes ‘where possible’ on ‘significant measures.’ Whatever that means. Even more disturbing was the idle voter turnout on the day, when only a criminal 54% of MP’s could be bothered to raise their hand to vote – including a flimsy 3% of all Labour MP’s – on what is perhaps the most important piece of legislation in history.
As a result we now stand at a crossroads, in what is destined to become the most important moment in history. Looking out onto a bleak horizon, where human freedom will become a thing of the past, with two possible scenarios to consider going forward. Because we all know what’s coming.
The first scenario involves each dissenter carefully deciding where they want to get trapped. Because in a few months once ‘vaccine-apartheid’ is implemented, those who refuse the jab will have very limited access to the economy and escape through international travel will be impossible.
The second scenario involves humanity resurfacing from behind the sofa. Organizing into a powerful consortium of stakeholders, towards a national opposition movement, with a clear and focussed mandate: to reclaim our citizenry, implement an independent publicly-led inquiry to examine the science vs the risks, bring this government to account for their malfeasance, and change the course of history. Because with the vast majority of career MP’s complicit in this agenda or lacking the vertebrae to oppose it, the burden of responsibility now rests squarely on the shoulders of the people. At this critical juncture, it is our civic duty to push back, resist, dissent, disobey. Let civil disobedience rip through this country, until it is returned to some semblance of normality. While we still have the notion of democracy to defend, we need to stand firm under its basic tenets. We must take off the mask, break the rules, organise and assemble in large groups and importantly, we need to protest and let our voices shudder throughout Westminster. If there is a silver lining to this historic debacle, now that the cannon smoke has settled on the battlefield, we can clearly see the snakes laid bare in the grass.
