We are at the brink

He said, “By means of ever more effective methods of mind-manip­ulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms … will remain.  The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitari­anism. … [T]he ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of sol­diers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.”

Huxley imagined “a prison without walls in which the prisoners would not even dream of escaping.  It would essentially be a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitude.”  He believed that “[t]he greater part of the population is not very intelligent, dreads responsibility, and … is perfectly happy to let itself be ruled.”

Huxley correctly predicted, “a vast mass communications industry, concerned in the main neither with the true nor the false, but with the unreal, the more or less totally irrelevant.  [The media will cater to] man’s almost infinite appetite for distraction.”

He knew that both poor education and perpetual crisis would enable tyranny, writing, “Children are nowhere taught, in any systematic way, to distinguish true from false, or meaningful from meaningless, statements.”  And “[l]iberty, as we all know, cannot flourish in a country that is permanently on a war footing, or even a near war footing.  Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of central government.”

While most people are not paying attention, most of the key elements protecting freedom and prosperity are now under attack by people who wish to control our country and the world.  Globalist leaders wish to put an end to national sovereignty, enforce a “New World Order,” control information, put an end to free speech, give the WHO worldwide dictatorial power on major health choices, ban our only reliable sources of energy, and impose a digital currency that will allow complete monitoring and control of every single citizen with a Chinese-style social credit system.  At home, the U.S. is in the “looting the treasury phase” of empire collapse.  Our military is weak, woke, and overextended.  The dominant media function as a branch of the Democrat party.  The upper levels of the Justice Department also function as a branch of the Democrat party.  Anti-white racism is widely taught and supported by the government.

These are not conspiracy theories.  The evidence is mostly out in the open.  The people who are planning to be your future masters are not worried about stating their plans because the vast majority of people are distracted with their trivial amusements.  They are busy watching ball games and movies and smartphone screens.  The mental weaknesses discussed above have created a culture ripe for the taking, oblivious and unconcerned about the things that really matter.

People can ignore important things…but they cannot escape the consequences of ignoring important things.

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.  That price has not been paid.  Not at all.  So here we are, at the brink.

    Aye we’re about done for. They just need to send bluetooth signals to the antennas of some of the vaxxed, and declare a plandemic, et viola, more lockdowns/masks compulsory bluetooth antenna installation via the procedure, and the show goes on. I suspect by the fact that Ukraine is now conscripting schoolkids and pensioners, that a new homeland devoid of men is being prepared for “someone”, but time will tell. There’s oft a slip twixt cup and lip.

    In the last 2 years I’ve reread both Orwell and Huxley’s classic works, 1984 and Brave New World. I thought that both are still relevant but that Huxley was more accurate to our present circumstances

    “a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitude”. That is exactly where we are now isn’t it. No need for physical intimidation and coercion any more, the slaves are lining up to to volunteer, at least most of them are
