(A long read. But then this coup has been in the making for a very, very long time).
I’m aware this piece might afford those who would wish to quote me out of context, to level that I’m anti-police or military. As an ex-British Army Squaddie with 25 years served, I can categorically assure you nothing could be further from the truth.
I’m just an individual who since going public with ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ via Berlin on 25th June 2017, has had a ‘unique’ interpretation on Brexit since and its ‘seemingly unconnected’, yet entirely ideologically-related and often precedented fascistic events…
“One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish a dictatorship”. Orwell.
Brexit: A Very British Fascist Coup
‘From the bias-seeding political ‘opinion’ polls, through to the mutually-reinforcing press & broadcast media delivering The Party’s predetermined, FPTP plebiscite outcome housed in a self-contained, self-congratulatory, confirmatory-contagion shade of timely red or perennial blue; it’s all an orchestrated, mass-psychosis charade. It’s a ‘pseudo-reality’ exercise in emotionally charged, behaviourally driven expectation management. In short, it’s all a fixed ‘democratic Matrix’. ~ Gaslighting Gilligan
As this piece demonstrates in the wake of the patriotic return of The Falklands War Task Force, the clues to a British State furtive-fascism were already here in the 1980’s, presciently enough in 1984, when the BBC also chronologically-reversed footage to give the propagandist-impression to the trusting general public, a manipulated fake-reality that made it appear Yorkshire miners had first attacked police before they merely responded ‘in kind’ to ‘restore’ order.
However before The Battle of Orgreave in ‘1984‘, State ‘fascism’ by my interpretation was already set in stone, within the DNA of a corporate-government Crown atop a brand titled ‘Empire’ (2.0!); a fashionable sort of fascism, the ‘respected’ forerunner to legalised, Whig-history erased mass-murder of its time, carried out by an equally dual characteristic, Schrodinger ‘State’; one housed in a simultaneous, emotionally-held ‘superiority-persecution complex’ mindset.
A mindset thats natural-resource acquisition ambitions conquered quarter of the planets’ population, yet still somehow manages to portray itself as the ‘stoic’, ‘Keep Calm & Carry On’, ‘We won WWII on our own’, stand-alone ‘victim‘ of “We are where we are” circumstances…?!
These narratives have always been with us in the form of film media propaganda, including ‘timely’ remakes but also in things the British elite estate didn’t teach or tell us; the deliberate genocidal atrocities followed by the deliberate ‘omission’ (as is the case in Yemen today) from State-funded school/University history in order to disguise from us who they – our entitled aristocrat-elite – really were – and still are.
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history”. Orwell.
In doing so they were able to hide their true identity from us, as they ‘normalised’ the ‘national-security psyche’ to break ‘Commie’ or ‘Socialist sympathisers’, mostly in northern English, Welsh and Scots communities through the Overton Window, shifting it towards the far-right over the course of decades, even temporarily changing the colour of ‘The Party’ from blue to red and back again, in case we cottoned onto, and to pre-emptive accusations of Britain being a One Party State.
And all through the cyclical-manipulation of our political-ideological reality, that fomented the phenomenological-foothold that encouraged the corporate-led normalisation narrative that told us (Crisis) ‘Capitalism is King’.
An age that stretched from “Greed is good” mass-narcissism narrative to the pouting selfie during which they sold western-society the ‘Me First’ manufactured perpetual consent to cyclically maintain the domestic-propaganda war against working masses in order to re-feed the patriotic ‘volunteer’ conveyor belt with a steady trickle of victimhood steeped in oil, as they imperceptibly prepared industrial-scale, mass-military recruitment by #MeTooMatrix gaslight-channelling for The Third World wave of hardy working class men – needed to conduct their final foray into the worlds oil-rich regions; principally the Middle East.
‘Fascism, steeped in its pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement and inveterate victimhood, is the group characteristic extension of individual narcissism and is the Machiavellian-patriotic, militarised business-profit model extension of joint Government and corporate psychosocial-engineered crisis-capitalism’. – Gaslighting Gilligan
In return, for the self-destructive ‘patriotic privilege’ afforded to us by British establishment-elite which they inter-generationally, cyclically-normalised in our preadolescence and that through wars that enriched them, we gave them our life-long permission too, to conduct the deliberate ideological crippling of (once) financially-viable heavy-industries.
This decades-long lead-in to its current concentration (camp!) form branded ‘austerity’, were I believe, deliberate, ideologically-driven State actions to decimate the cohesion of communities that choked-off localised economic-employment opportunities for men (the true purpose of austerity) many of whom without prospects or Maslow’s Hierarchy purpose were then quite deliberately psychosocial engineering ‘channeled’; economically-conscripted toward the military to go and kill other financially-poor and indoctrinated men, themselves manipulated by power-grasping regimes, who stood in the way of the very same British (& US) plutocracy oil-potential interests.
But the psychological drift of Anglo-centric ‘UK’ populace mindset, through schooling in childhood then media propaganda entertainment in adulthood, has been redirected from the ‘glory’ of Empire to imperceptibly sleepwalk into the jaws of the ideological-beast we theoretically ‘defeated’ in WWII; its dovetailed, “invisible propaganda” (Goebbels) characteristic cousin – fascism – disguised by #ToryAnalytica asset hard-liners as merely being Brexit ‘patriotism’ and “taking back control”.
An example of the pervasive, perennial British ‘patriotic’, anti-German gaslighting propaganda (in a centre-left newspaper) often brushed off as ‘humour’, yet has deliberately sown hatred of the ‘other’ by seeding Anglo ethno-nationalism; under the editorial control of none other than hard-core Brexiteer, right-wing agitator – Piers Morgan.
Well, as ever with ideological ethno-nationalist ‘patriotism’, there are usually weaker, vulnerable groups who are made to pay a steep price – often with their lives.
People in Britain are starving and dying, many committing State-induced suicide; a silent, ‘democratic-Government’ inflicted ‘Final Solution’ by Dark Triad design – all behind closed doors. How’s that for a paradigm shift in the meaning of ‘domestic abuse’?
Only this time there’s no train tracks to the ‘concentration camps’, no hidden chimneys or plumes of flesh-scented black smoke on the horizon – not yet anyway. No, these tracks have been laid via ideological austerity-apartheid propaganda, the ‘passengers’ delivered to their mass-graves via the foreboding, unrelenting sense of hopelessness and pervasive isolation and through the ghettoisation of communities; the relative-poverty and identity-politics induced breakdown of trust and wellbeing in society – including that achieved through the daily sense of dread of living in another potential Grenfell high-rise funeral-pyre…
An excerpt from the book itself; cowardly bystanders believing themselves unaffected, for now, turn a blind eye – until it’s their turn. The infinitely-hypocritical human condition doesn’t change; all that does are the perpetrators methodologies, including the means to omit ‘It’ – and the time – the unacknowledged epoch in which we find ourselves today…
“Fascism is coming; probably a slimy Anglicized form of Fascism, with cultured policemen instead of Nazi Gorillas and the lion and the unicorn instead of the swastika.” – George Orwell – The Road to Wigan Pier – (1937).
We’ve seen ‘It‘ before. It’s that same cyclical sort of peculiar, yet recurring ‘patriotism’ which has periodically given permission to working-class baton (& bullet) wielding soldiers and policemen, the individual and group-organisation ‘moral justification’ to batter seven shades of shite out of their working class civilian counterparts – in the name of so-called ‘law and order’ or ‘national security‘ but which is in fact, in the arbitrary interest of the State power-elite.
And which if we don’t see through ‘It’- quickly – a ‘patriotic’ slap-down of the civilian population is about to happen again.
Because as part of the wider coup d’etat plan, you may have noticed that ‘patriotism’, ‘Britishness’ is being superficially-foisted and emotions driven, through joint corporate-government partnership institutions – especially via a drip-fed, imperceptible-tsunami of TV-propaganda programming. One such other everyday, now pervasive example of Union Jack brand product placement, is that seen in the kaleidoscopic-sea of red, white and blue emblazoned colours across our food products burgeoning corporate-UK supermarket shelves.
This #Gleichschaltung ‘Food Produce Propaganda’ also acts as classic association-conditioning not simply to reinforce those already on board, or to marginalise those who aren’t – but specifically to ‘train’ new revitalised generation of toddlers and teenagers to maintain the man-made illusion of ‘Britishness’; that sells ‘Great’ Britain not as the fabricated political corporate-government construct that it is but as a single ‘country’.
Only now, its inhabitants cannot understand they’ve been delivered as those before them; these #PavlovPatriots and #MaslowsMartyrs whose only purpose is to feed the British establishment elite their #DarkTriad avarice appetite dreams; which includes our ‘childlings‘. (In the book the adults are ‘children’ and the kids ‘childlings’)
As did the Nazi’s, the corporate-political military propaganda machine manipulated a dangerous, contemporary ‘intelligent patriot’ (Ben Ferencz) populace being primed to deliver retribution against those who don’t deserve it; minorities or those who will not consent to the deliberate ideologically-driven crippling of local economies (again!) – and now carrying out localised destruction of the environment too – via the bastard-child of corporate-government fossil-fuel extraction; fucking fracking!
All of which is being carried out in the invisible name of a US/UK global-bank #OilOligarchy by their mainstream media who are the public facing vanguard of a coup d’etat called ‘Brexit’ (as is the Trump Presidency – they’re the same failing coup) which is being augmented by social media and whose leadership themselves are on the same #ToryAnalytica team but the Machiavellian MSM misdirection theatre will, with decreasing plausibility, maintain their #FakeNews narrative to blame the internet (and all men!) for democracy’s (and society’s) ills.
“Britain’s welfare system is so sexist. There is a really remarkable gender dimension to many of the reforms. If you got a group of misogynists together in a room and said ‘How can we make a system that works for men but not women?’ they wouldn’t have come up with too many other ideas than what’s in place.” – Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty & Human Rights – November 2018.
#Nr5 ‘RAMPANT SEXISM’ – ‘Early Warning Signs of Fascism’ sign created by political scientist Lawrence W. Britt in 2003.
You see a very British (and beyond) fascist coup began in earnest on our 1984 ‘news’ in 2010, led by our ‘trusted’ mainstream media, notably on BBC Question Time, not to #NigelFarage ‘reflect’ a politically-disenfranchised working class populace as they initially claimed, but to bovine-drive us by an ‘uncontrolled immigration’, mass-psychosis nose as they led like cattle into a patriotic military-scale #PsyOps warfare Operation to deliver a “too close to call” expectation management exercise in ‘democracy‘.
And all timed to be seamlessly dovetailed and delivered smack bang in the middle of the WWI Centenary ‘Commemorations‘ which were deliberately, nostalgically-conflated with WWII weaponised-film and other psychological & physiological ‘push and pull’ drivers, such as the mass-dignity deprivation and depression inducing ‘Austerity’ Apartheid propaganda policy; to psychosocial engineer – men – to turn back to the very #GaslightingGilligan source of their ‘toxic masculinity’ and mental health issues; the British State to ‘discover’ their manipulated ‘meaning’ via patriotic ‘purpose’ – in the rote-recycled, media-political military-fantasy of “Our Boys” and “brave”, “heroes” who “ran towards the danger“.
Its purpose is to augment both the management of the protracted coup and make less visible by normalisation of the conscious and sub-conscious subliminal military recruitment campaign – especially in TV advertising – set against the backdrop of an official-media MOD campaign.
An MOD campaign which has, on behalf of the British State, also injected itself into TV sports, State schools, shopping malls and the recent ‘prescient’ State-sponsored ‘Armed Forces Day’ – all itself against the omnipresent, vast-invisibility backdrop of an increasingly weaponised, emotionalised British Brexit nationalist-fascist fervour in all its nightmarish #DarkTriad (model) poetry.
A fervour that is to be fascist felt with such ideological-force of passion in the wake of Brexit propaganda, that with the flick of switch of another yellow-tsunami laden false-flag event; this time a notable one – was to be a game changer on a par with 9/11 – that still requires the manufactured pretext of a National Emergency/Security to place soldiers and armed police on English, Welsh then the financial and ideological point of the exercise – Scottish oil-laden streets.
But not necessarily Northern Ireland – the British Unionist element there have outlasted their purpose and The Province was to be abandoned under the guise of observing The Good Friday Agreement during ‘#OpFukuglaschu‘ – as ‘predicted‘ by a Facebook VP Andrew Bosworth;
“Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools. And we still connect people”. (18th June 2016).
And Boris Johnson, waving his power-symbolism in our faces with his Dark Triad in-house ‘joke’ and how Britain would “make a Titanic success of Brexit”, leading to Liam Fox’s “Empire 2.0″…
However, Northern Ireland’s hard-core Unionists would be ‘invited’ to resettle, a re-Plantation of Ulster-Scots to form the £1 billion ‘bribe‘ backbone of an uber-patriotic British militia on mainland Britain; a contemporary Black & Tans – initially in Scotland.
It failed because, well, there’s no other way to say it; I was inadvertently ‘TV PTSD’-jarred into reality to begin tracking ‘It‘ on 12th September 2016, wrote ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ and took it to Berlin and on the 25th June 2017, warned five different agencies – including the Irish Embassy.
But there’s more than one way to induce a National Security Emergency when things don’t go to plan. And it’s in the PlanB works right now.
Just as they did by increasingly frequent concentrations of angered dissonance ‘terrorising tragedies’ from March 2017 leading into their planned busy summer ‘an event’ was supposed to see them extricate Brexit negotiations without agreement but implement Hard Brexit regardless as “will of the British people“.
But they, Westminster/Whitehall and The White House – still have to deliver their stamp of authority to end Scotland politically in order retain control of the new £1TRILLION+ oil-revenues West of Shetland – and to avoid The Hague.
And so just as they did leading into the summer, the UK State military-media intelligence are now slowly winding-up, incrementally hyper-sensitising the most ardent British nationalists the possibility of delaying or even failing to deliver ‘Hard Brexit’ at all.
There’s already evidence of an ‘impatient-resentment’ building up within ardent Brexiteers. It’s a deliberate strategy that designed to silence dissent and target anything and anyone that is not of their British nationalist identity. And it won’t be pretty.
They might even hand Jeremy Corbyn a snap General Election hospital pass so that British history will record a pacifist-socialist PM as being responsible for and incompetently incapable of, managing the ‘National Emergency’ carnage which ‘led to his resignation ousting’.
I’m convinced the architects of the #BrexitCoup never anticipated Brexit ‘negotiations’ to go beyond July 2017 and so now are forced to resort to the upkeep of Machiavellian pretence of negotiations using the only ‘strategy’ available to them; media driven symbolic sound-bites.
The unfailingly media propagated “Will of the British people”, “Let the Lion Roar” and other British-Boris sound-bites are unbeffiting of a “strong and stable” democracy but entirely befitting the threatened facade of one.
“When stupidity is considered patriotism, it is unsafe to be intelligent”. – Isaac Asimov.
Yes, fascism crept up on us as we were all taught to pat ourselves on the back for defeating it.
It snuck in through the back door right in front of our child-like eager-to-please eyes – via State institution indoctrination ushered in by the Empire mindset as British establishment elite patted us on the head like the good little children they see us as.
Only now dark slivers the manipulated plebiscite consent in the form of 21st fascism in USA & Europe (and beyond) are showing through true democracy’s light.
The long-established narcissistic psychopathic powers of the joint US/UK fascist elite couldn’t help themselves – they wanted more. But more can never be enough for the #NarcissistFascist Characteristics.
Which is why their Machiavellian mainstream media ‘news’-fronted smiling, beguiling toxic mask – is slipping in front of an increasingly suspicious, politically aware and global internet-research savvy population.
But we’ve got to stop seeing them; these politicians and media as revered, trusted ‘grown-ups’ and ourselves as the trusting children. We’re still caught in that cycle of childlike indoctrinated-conditioning and acquiescent, social-compliance conformity.
But we are waking up (not too late I hope).
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamour for such laws if their personal security is threatened”. Joseph Stalin.
Why else do you think the UK State wants to introduce ‘terrorism motivated’ legislation with sweeping cyberspace surveillance powers over the entire population? And wants to also imprison people for 15 years for ‘repeatedly visiting terrorist websites’ – people that will no doubt include citizen-journalists for researching the roots of global terrorism and for which mounting evidence suggests these roots go right back to the source – the US/UK Security Intelligence Services.
Because it maintains the cycle of terror and terrorism in all its forms; from hi-tech precision drone-strikes, to street level hire-vans to rock-concert vantage points; as long as it’s terrifying.
“One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish a dictatorship”. Orwell.
All of which is utterly pointless to the architects – if the global-western media weaponised ‘carnage-collages‘ are not propagated by their 24/7 rolling-reinforcement of mainstream ‘news’ (and drama ‘entertainment’) to turn the masses against one another as seen at Orgeave…
…and Hillsborough – to create a recycled chain-reaction of broken survivors, broken families, broken men, broken fathers, broken brothers and broken sons; broken society to rebuild, to ‘reboot’ and send as soldiers to another patriotic war rooted in another elitist imperial-fascist power-grab, for oil-wealth greed, having slapped a patriotic flag on legalised mass-murder – perhaps even on this ‘United’ island and most certainly in the Middle East.
Now then, where else were hundreds of families recently gaslight-dehumanised by the media and broken by the British elite-estate policies and actions? And where are tens, if not hundreds of thousands of boys and young men, many fatherless and without male role-models, living in potential inferno, high-rise inner-city funeral-pyre flats – going to get themselves a meaningful Maslow’s Hierarchy purpose and dignified future..?
You know the answer. You just don’t know you know It, in part, because you don’t want to. Because to contemplate ‘It’, is just too terrifying. But it’s been done on this scale before. Twice.
Because if you logically processed its contemporary sustained US/UK correlation-pattern, without emotion; without patriotism, you’d see it isn’t chaotic chance at play, it’s an invisibly-vast and deliberate #DarkTriad design channelling young men principally to the military, if not, then gangs.
Because whether a prisoner of the mind in a military uniform serving the State or a prisoner of walls in an orange jumpsuit servicing the profits of the State, you cease to be a threat in any great, cohesive numbers to the established, crisis-capitalist, narcissist-fascist ‘patriotic’ hierarchy.
Those young men that don’t take the subliminal hint or make the ‘grade‘ in either male-belonging institution, well, they become media-invisible male-suicide statistics, save using its gaslighting ‘male mental health’ narrative-value to associatively-channel purpose towards the military. Or become homeless, lost to the streets to be recirculated as #PsyOps ‘toxic masculinity’ and psychosocial engineered economic-disparity, esteem-deprivation cannon-fodder in a #PatrioticPoverty #PrisonMilitaryIndustrialComplex, which upon the self-inflicted fascist-militarisation trigger, a “Titanic success” for “Empire 2.0” – becomes an AusterityArmy…
Ultimately ‘power’ doesn’t have a social conscience nor political allegiance. Its only allegiance is to power itself at any and all costs, including, as an absolute narcissistic necessity; to your cost and that of your families and society, regardless of how ‘patriotic’ that very same power afforded you, programmed you with in childhood, to make you ‘feel’ a part of ‘It’. You’re not.
“In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance”. Orwell.
You, are a potential pharmaceutical and petrodollar profit commodity on the #HumanMiseryGoRound. You, are State-recycled #PatrioticPoverty programmed to serve as socioeconomic and classic cannon-fodder. If you don’t wake up, you are about to become Orwellian #AirstripOne #MaslowsMartyrs & #PavlovsPatriots.
We all are. #TickTockTroops…
