There is always an excuse for the enforcement of totalitarian restrictions on the public. There is always a reason. And, often these reasons are engineered to sound logical and practical at the time.
In Germany after WWI and into the early 1930s Bolshevik activists and the German Communist Party (KPD) engaged in aggressive economic sabotage, street violence, and even assassinations. This along with the Great Depression led to German middle-class support for the National Socialist Party and the Third Reich (fascism). Much of history’s focus is on the horrors of the Nazis, but many people are unaware of the extreme threat of the communist revolution in Europe during this era, a threat which was used by the Nazis as a perfect rationale for constructing a police state. Arguably, without the existence of hardline communism, the fascists never would have had the public support needed to rise to power.
In Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, the Cheka secret police were established in the name of preventing “counter-revolution”. This is an interesting aspect common to communism in particular; they desperately cling to the narrative that THEY are the “revolutionaries”, even when they have all the power. Thus, the revolution never ends because there are always people who disagree with communism. Anyone who refuses to comply with Marxist mandates becomes an imperialist enemy and bogeyman and is held up as an example of why the revolution must perpetually continue. The police state must exist forever to root out the evil classists lurking in the shadows.
During the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, a virus with a much higher death rate among younger Americans compared to today’s coronavirus, major US cities such as New Orleans instituted martial law measures and lockdowns on the economy; closing schools, churches, public transportation, and places of leisure. Of course, despite claims in the wake of COVID, these measures did little to nothing to stop the spread of the virus and the public became frustrated with their inability to function in the day-to-day economy (sound familiar). The population began to rebel against restrictions that were leading to financial decay, and there was little governments could do about it.
I’ve noticed that the mainstream media has attempted in the past six months to rewrite the history of the Spanish Flu as if martial law measures were a success, even though ultimately the flu ran its natural course in the majority of US cities. Infections and deaths continued unabated until the virus burned itself out and disappeared (no working vaccine was ever produced though there were many failed attempts based on the assumption that the disease was bacterial). Martial law actions only served to drag out the timeline of the virus.
One could argue that a hundred years ago governments did not have the same tools at their disposal as they do now. But are we really that much further ahead? Virologists have been working on an effective SARS vaccine for almost two decades with little success; the idea that they could come up with a working vaccine for COVID in the span of a year (as many governments are suggesting) seems absurd. History shows us that when vaccines are rushed into production by authorities, very bad things happen.
Regardless of lockdown measures, infection rates continue to climb in many nations, thereby justifying EVEN LONGER or more frequent lockdowns. This creates an endless cycle of economic instability which the public cannot endure, and many people are beginning to wonder what purpose of the pandemic restrictions serve? It’s obviously not to slow the virus and save lives as an effective vaccine is unlikely to be developed in time for the lockdowns to matter. But, if you wanted to quickly implement a totalitarian system, then using a global health threat as justification might be the ticket.
The problem for the establishment will be this: How can they keep the tyranny going once they have it? Ultimately, for a totalitarian system to work it NEEDS a large portion of the public to support it on principle. The public has to believe that the loss of their liberties is necessary to their survival for the long term.
What I find most interesting is the disparity in response to the two sides of the crisis today. Just as in the early part of the 20th century, we have a communist uprising as well as a global pandemic that the public is growing increasingly suspicious of. How the government treats each problem is obviously different.
For example, the law enforcement response to the BLM and ANTIFA riots has been rather subdued and passive. I was in Pittsburgh for the G20 event in 2009 and I can tell you from experience that the police response was vicious and highly coordinated, and this was against groups that were doing nothing more than chanting slogans in the street without a permit from the city (the city government only gave out ONE protest permit while the G20 were present in Pittsburgh).
There was no rioting and minimal damage to private property, yet law enforcement deployed full force measures including Spartan formations, sound cannons, rubber bullets, and armored vehicles. Watch video footage of the G20 in Pittsburgh and then compare it to the riots in Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, New York, etc. It should become clear to you that for some reason police are being ordered to hold back the majority of the time.
Another glaring issue is the media response to the riots. They refer to the protests as exclusively peaceful despite mass looting, destruction of private property, and violence. They treat BLM as sacrosanct and untouchable and act as an attack dog against anyone criticizing the actions of the organization. The issue of social distancing and virus spread is dismissed or ignored when it comes to BLM.
By extension, examine the mainstream media response to the protests against coronavirus lockdown restrictions. No riots, no looting, no violence on the part of conservative and moderate protesters, yet the media demonizes them as if they are a threat to the very fabric of our society. Look at how quick authorities have been to arrest people who refuse to follow lockdown restrictions, and take into account how aggressive arrests have been in other countries like Australia, Spain, or the UK for doing nothing more than posting messages on Facebook or not wearing a mask on the street.
I think my point here is clear: The establishment supports social justice violence and unrest and is cracking down hard on any resistance to medical tyranny. The hypocrisy is evident.
But this brings up some questions; such as why they are so keen to allow the BLM riots to continue? As noted at the beginning of this article, I think the strategy is evident – It’s a two-pronged attempt, a bait and switch: If the Marxists are successful and meet little resistance from the public then they will tear down the current system, and the elitists’ institutions that fund them like George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and the Ford Foundation will use the opportunity to build an Orwellian collectivist society from the ashes.
On the other hand, as in Germany in the 1930s, the civil unrest caused by hard-left groups could also convince the general public that martial law measures are an acceptable solution and make them willing to sacrifice constitutional protections in order to rid themselves of the threat. There have been examples of this recently when federal agents initiated a black bagging of protester in Portland using unmarked vans; all I saw from most conservatives was cheering. This would undoubtedly lead to a long term totalitarian structure that, once again, benefits the elites that inhabit every aspect of government including Trump’s White House.
In both cases, the power elites get what they want – a police state.
In terms of the pandemic response, a police state is already being established in many nations, and with most Western people’s predominantly disarmed there is little chance they will be able to resist the crackdown that will ensue as they try to protest the restrictions. But what about in America?
This is why it does not surprise me that the BLM riots are being encouraged so openly in the US. Look at it this way: If the elites cannot get us to go along with medical tyranny for fear of sparking an armed uprising from conservatives with actual training and ability, then they figure maybe they can trick us into supporting martial law in the name of defeating the political left.
The only solution is to refuse to support either option. We must repel the establishment of medical tyranny and stand against any overstep of state and federal governments against the constitution when it comes to protests. Riots and looting can be dealt with and dealt with within the confines of the Bill of Rights. Also, once again I would point out that in almost every place where armed citizens organize and take up security measures in their communities the protests remain peaceful, or they don’t happen at all.
There is no legitimate excuse for a police state. There is always another way. Anyone that tells you different has an agenda of their own.
What is truly and inarguably apocalyptic for all of humanity is the matter of nuclear waste. There is no solution. It is a fatal and unavoidable reality. Do you seriously believe that the governments will admit it? They admit nothing! Nothing could possibly explain such reckless gluttonous behavior other than that they all know that the end is near because we have reached peak nuclear waste and they all collectively decided to make the most of it like the roaring 20’s on steroids, and then go out with a bang. The amount of reckless abandon and mistakes and deception could not have any other rational excuse.
Any victory would be a hollow and false victory, since the issue of nuclear waste is inslovable. That is not to argue in favor of the status quo. Just fair warning to all so that they may realize the uglier truth that is hiding behind the ugly facade. It is inconquerable. People, nations, corporations, banks can be conquered. Nuclear waste can never be conquered.
Today, September 11, is All Cuckolds Day. No planes in the sky, few people in the office at work, millions of Muslims occupying Western cities, many in veils and burkhas. Feel like we won the War on Terror? I don’t.
September 11 represents the day the West died and we have been in decline and decay ever since.
BLM is proving the thesis that black people are the protected race of the state, used to bully and harass and attack everyone else. The 2011 riots in the UK only ever ended when the people had had enough and gangs of Turks organised the fight back. The state panicked (the image of blacks getting the beat down they deserved was too much) and the police quickly brought the riots to an end. They could do so now if they wanted.
We are being played. Look left, look right, but never, ever look up.
The population began to rebel against restrictions that were leading to financial decay, and there was little governments could do about it.
I really would not expect that from today’s sheep called US citizens. Most support the stupidity, and inform on their neighbors that do not comply.
Trump has revealed himself to be as unscrupulous a charcter as one could be, with his “4D chess” strategy including using a plandemic scamdemic as a fall guy for his economic disasters as well as his culture of corruption, in addition to trying to incite race wars turning blacks and Jews against white Christians and vice-versa. The man is a sleazy scum bag and employs white trash tactics and divide and conquer. Trump pretends that the financiers of BLM are unknown and are in the shadows, even though everyone knows that it is corporate America financing them, who Trump refuses to hold accountable, because it benefits him politically. Trump is one of the worst presidents that this country has ever had.
Trump is relying on a gas-lighting psy-op QAnon to get re-elected.
That is how desperate and full of shit Trump is! Unfortunately, if people are stupid enough to fall for QAnon, they are stupid enough to fall for Trump.
If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything. Trump stands for nothing. He has proven it. He is a stuffed suit.
Trump is totally evil.
From Robert f Kennedy jr website—
“the company asserts that a panel of independent experts will review the adverse reaction and decide whether or not AstraZeneca should lift the pause.
While AstraZeneca says the woman has not been officially diagnosed, an anonymous source told the New York Times that the woman’s symptoms were consistent with transverse myelitis (TM).
TM is a neurological disorder characterized by inflammation of the spinal cord, a major element of the central nervous system. It often results in weakness of the limbs, problems emptying the bladder and paralysis. Patients can become severely disabled and there is currently no effective cure.
Concerns over associations between TM and vaccines are well known. A review of published case studies in 2009 documented 37 cases of transverse myelitis associated with vaccines, including Hepatitis B, measles-mumps-rubella, diphtheria, pertussis…
The TEMPER TANTRUM CROWD [snowflake ANTIFA & Black Lives (only) Matter] continue to garner concessions from DEMONRATS in power. The Demonrat mayors in our major cities appear to be complicit criminals as they ignore the rights of law-abiding, tax-paying CITIZENS. Infamous names like Wheeler, Lightfoot, DeBlasio, and on & on should be shamed in every community.
DO NOT CATER to subversives that want to DESTROY our society. You just yield more of the criminal behavior.
