“Fascism is coming; probably a slimy Anglicised form of Fascism, with cultured policemen instead of Nazi gorillas and the lion and the unicorn instead of the swastika”. Orwell, ‘The Road to Wigan Pier’.
Metronome, lightbulb or bell; for Pavlov’s Dogs the stimulus didn’t matter as long as the dogs learned to anticipate and associate food with a positive reward-conditioning.
This is why amidst a clearly visible campaign of TV, radio, film and sport ‘Britification’ (and Princess Dianafication!) there’s also a Union Jack on almost every food and drink product, in almost every supermarket across this entire island – but especially in Scotland via the Gleichschaltung Gaslighting Erasure of Scots Historical-Cultural Identity (2017).
Its propagandist purpose is to create a positive-conditioned association with all things ‘British’.
“Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves”. Eric Hoffer
So as far as food packaging is concerned, we are – like Pavlov’s Dogs without the drooling – being ‘positively conditioned’ to anticipate and associate ‘treats’ – particularly food and drink – with the Union Flag. Or rather more specifically, our children are.
As adults, if you’re already loyal to the flag, or even just simply indifferent to it, you’ve probably either already been conditioned to worship it unquestioningly or simply be nonplussed by it. Either way your association-loyalty is either reinforced or you simply remain acquiescent through innate social-compliance to the British establishment, who conditioned you with the Union Jack in the first place to make you ‘feel‘ a part of them. You’re not.
No matter how ‘British‘ you ‘feel‘ and as much as you ‘feel‘ a part of them, the British aristocrat cartel just don’t feel the same way about you. In fact they despise you; as we’ll all soon witness –again– when Brexit Britain’s rubber bullets inevitably start flying alongside militarised UK Police State batons smashing working class skulls. Don’t say you haven’t all been warned.
Because no matter how much illusion of ‘Britishness’, of family; of Volksgemeinschaft people’s community; or of diversity that they sell you on TV ads and entertainment ‘programming’ like the Great British Fake Off draped in the product-placement Union Jack, you will never be a part of ‘them’.
“They did not foresee what in fact has happened, above all in our Western capitalist democracies – the development of 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. In a word, they failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions”. Aldous Huxley
That’s part of the reason why they hand out OBE’s and MBE’s to working class ‘heroes’ – to cyclically feed the illusion ‘we’ are the same as ‘them’.
So let’s not kid ourselves that we’ll behave any better than starving dogs when push comes to shove – because given just the right, Nazi precedented Hostile Environment policy and propaganda conditions we can quite easily become savage, superior-minded yet subservient beasts; not too dissimilar as Nuremberg Prosecutor Ben Ferencz description of the Nazi’s “intelligent patriots” who committed genocide.
When it comes to the real or even perceived threat to our families – especially via the lack of food or drink – which when Brexit bites and the supermarket shelves begin to become sparse of the food that used to be emblazoned with a Union Flag – will we realise how easily we can become a slave to our primordial base-animal instincts.
And we will do almost anything in order to survive to protect our own – even turning to and begging the ‘Westminster Master’ who treated us like Pavlov’s Dogs in the first place for our ‘salvation‘. In a word; gaslighting.
The fat-cat UK corporate-government elites are, with historical Imperial-fascist precedence, manipulating the minds and perceptions of the 99% who live on this island in order reinforce existing British biases but also to create a new, younger generation of British food branded ‘Pavlov’s Patriots’ in a bid to capture every working class soul across this island.
These preadolescents and adolescents, are being imprisoned as we’ve always been through ‘Patriotic Programming: Toddler to Teenager to Tabloidhood’ (2017)…
…many of whom will be groomed to grow ‘nurtured’, conditioned and channelled to become the recycled cannon-fodder sent by the 1% controlled corporate mainstream media TV and tabloid propaganda, to go and fight and die for the British and US establishment elites entitlement to oil and power; just as they did in the First World War – they didn’t teach us that in school did they? (Google the Berlin Baghdad Railway).
‘Fascism, steeped in pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement & inveterate victimhood, is the group-characteristic extension of narcissism and is the Machiavellian-patriotic, militarised business model extension of joint Government and corporate engineered crisis-capitalism’. ‘Characteristics Of An Individual Narcissist & A Fascist State’ (2017)
