People can inform themselves that they didn’t see the place issues have been heading for the final 17 months, however they did. They noticed all the indicators alongside the approach. The indicators have been all written in massive, daring letters, a few of them in scary-looking Germanic script. They learn … “THIS IS THE ROAD TO TOTALITARIANISM.”
I’m not going to present you all these indicators out once more. People like me have been pointing them out, and studying them out loud, for 17 months now. Anyone who is aware of something about the historical past of totalitarianism, the way it incrementally transforms society right into a monstrous mirror picture of itself, has recognized since the starting what the “New Normal” is, and we’ve been shouting from the rooftops about it.
We have watched as the New Normal reworked our societies into paranoid, pathologized, authoritarian dystopias the place individuals now have to present their “papers” to see a film or get a cup of espresso and publicly show their ideological conformity to enter a grocery store and purchase their groceries.
We have watched as the New Normal reworked the majority of the lots into hate-drunk, hysterical mobs which might be brazenly persecuting “the Unvaccinated,” the official “Untermenschen” of the New Normal ideology.
We have watched as the New Normal has performed exactly what each totalitarian motion in historical past has performed earlier than it, proper by the numbers. We pointed all this out, every step of the approach. I’m not going to reiterate all that once more.
I’m, nevertheless, going to doc the place we’re at the second, and the way we obtained right here … for the report, in order that the individuals who will inform you later that they “had no clue where the trains were going” will perceive why we not belief them, and why we regard them as cowards and collaborators, or worse.
Yes, that’s harsh, however this isn’t a sport. It isn’t a distinction of opinion. The global-capitalist ruling institution is implementing a brand new, extra brazenly totalitarian construction of society and methodology of rule. They are revoking our constitutional and human rights, transferring energy out of sovereign governments and democratic establishments into unaccountable international entities that don’t have any allegiance to any nation or its individuals.
That is what is occurring … proper now. It isn’t a TV present. It’s truly occurring. The time for individuals to “wake up” is over. At this level, you both be part of the combat to protect what’s left of these rights, and that sovereignty, otherwise you give up to the “New Normal,” to global-capitalist totalitarianism.
I couldn’t care much less what you consider about the virus, or its mutant variants, or the experimental “vaccines.” This isn’t an summary argument over “the science.” It is a combat … a political, ideological combat. On one facet is democracy, on the different is totalitarianism. Pick a fucking facet, and stay with it. Anyway, right here’s the place we’re at the second, and the way we obtained right here, simply the broad strokes.
It’s August 2021, and Germany has officially banned demonstrations against the “New Normal” official ideology. Other public assemblies, like the Christopher Street Day demo (pictured beneath), one week in the past, are nonetheless allowed. The outlawing of political opposition is a basic hallmark of totalitarian techniques. It’s additionally a basic transfer by the German authorities, which can give them the pretext they want to unleash the New Normal goon squads on the demonstrators tomorrow.
In Australia, the military has been deployed to implement whole compliance with authorities decrees … lockdowns, obligatory public obedience rituals, and so on. In different phrases, it’s de facto martial legislation. This is one other basic hallmark of totalitarian techniques.
In France, restaurant and other business owners who serve “the Unvaccinated” will now be imprisoned, as will, in fact, “the Unvaccinated.” The scapegoating, demonizing, and segregating of “the Unvaccinated” is occurring in international locations throughout the world. France is simply an excessive instance. The scapegoating, dehumanizing, and segregating of minorities — significantly the regime’s political opponents — is one other basic hallmark of totalitarian techniques.
In the UK, Italy, Greece, and quite a few different international locations all through the world, this pseudo-medical social-segregation system is also being introduced, so as to divide societies into “good people” (i.e., compliant) and “bad” (i.e., non-compliant).
The “good people” are being given license and inspired by the authorities and the company media to unleash their rage on the “the Unvaccinated,” to demand our segregation in internment camps, to openly threaten to viciously murder us. This can also be a trademark of totalitarian techniques.
And that, my associates, is the place we’re. We didn’t get right here in a single day. Here are just some of the unmistakable indicators alongside the street to totalitarianism that I’ve identified over the final 17 months.
June 2020 … The New (Pathologized) Totalitarianism
August 2020 … The Invasion of the New Normals
October 2020 … The Covidian Cult
November 2020 … The Germans Are Back!
March 2021 … The New Normal (Phase 2)
March 2021 … The “Unvaccinated” Question
May 2021 … The Criminalization of Dissent
June 2021 … Manufacturing New Normal “Reality“
And now, right here we’re, the place we’ve been heading all alongside, clearly, unmistakably heading … instantly into The Approaching Storm, or presumably international civil struggle. This isn’t the finish of the street to totalitarianism, however I’m fairly positive we’re in the dwelling stretch. It looks like issues are about to get ugly. Very ugly. Extremely ugly.
Those of us who’re preventing to protect our rights, and a few primary semblance of democracy, are outnumbered, however we haven’t had our closing say but … and there are hundreds of thousands of us, and we’re conscious.
So choose a facet, in the event you haven’t already. But, earlier than you do, perhaps look again at the historical past of totalitarian techniques, which, for some cause, by no means appear to work out for the totalitarians, at the least not in the future. I’m not an expert thinker or something, however I think that may have one thing to do with some individuals’s inextinguishable want for freedom, and our willingness to combat for it, generally to the loss of life.
This form of looks like a type of instances. Sorry for going all “Braveheart” on you, however I’m psyching myself up to go get the snot beat out of me by the New Normal goon squads tomorrow, so I’m slightly … , overly emotional. Seriously, although, choose a facet … now … or a facet shall be picked for you.
