by Johnny McNeill – unpublished author of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (released via Berlin on 25th June 2017).
This piece is prompted by Marcus Rashford’s charity drive to feed children. To feed children.
It’s an updated recap that will hopefully help people better relate to the terrible reality of what I’d previously tried to convey in 2017 in; ‘Psychosocial Engineering The Tragedy-Charity Gaslight-Ceremony Cycle’ – ‘Maslow’s Martyrs‘ (link below). And is in ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ (©️ 2017) itself (free download) as the ‘Military Industrial Corporate Charity Cycle’ taking the ‘MICCC’…
…with the evidence for the human ‘emotionalism for militarism‘ effects contributing to the self-sustaining cycle that is plain to see – but most importantly to feel; because that’s the entire point of propaganda – to drive predictable emotional-behavioural responses.
And is, as Dominic Cummings symbolically stated in his blog on 23rd June 2017, a deliberate design;
‘This is what I call “The power of the context” or “Point of view is worth 80 IQ points”. Science & engineering are famous examples but there are even more striking processes within these large disciplines’. Dominic Cummings – ‘On the referendum #23, a year after victory: ‘A change of perspective is worth 80 IQ points’ & ‘How to capture the heavens’ (June 2017)
To be clear, what Marcus Rashford MBE has achieved in such a short space of time is beautiful – because the human condition in general is capable of beautiful things when permitted. However does no-one think it odd that if he can achieve as one man what he has in such a limited time, then why have successive UK Governments with all the resources at their disposal, cyclically ‘failed’ to eradicate UK child poverty over the last forty years, certainly since ‘charity’ became so pervasively corporatised?
“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous”. Orwell
The truth is the propagandist cycle of the feel good factor isn’t meant to end, not until the emotion of it can be irreversibly weaponised against us; against the working masses. Which is why this particular ‘Member of the British Empire’ – Mr Rashford – has also unfortunately fallen for the #PatrioticPoverty trap, just as I did during my 25+ years service in the British Army (1985-2011) and kept falling for it until September 2016…
“I’ve been talking about global poverty since Comic Relief began, but if you told me 10 years ago that I would be here today, asking you to reach into your pocket so we can help feed children in the UK, one of the richest countries in the world, I wouldn’t have believed you”. Lenny Henry, March 2019.
The UK population has failed to understand, having been enveloped in a forever-fog of emotion, to cognitively process to see beyond the ‘empowering benevolence’ of it all, in order to acknowledge the reality of Edward Bernays emotionally ‘regimented’ effects on the “group-mind without them knowing It”…
…doing so from master-manipulator Dominic Cummings “perspective worth 80 IQ points”, on “how to” (cryptically) “capture the heavens” (he quite literally means securing God-like power – seriously). And as a representation of that power and of ‘Britishness‘ itself, you only need to look at the pins in the map over England, placed by Marcus Rashford MBE.
‘This is what poverty does. In my experience, its damage is like the damage of war; it can last a lifetime, spread to loved ones and contaminate the next generation. It stunts children, brings on a host of diseases and, as unemployed Harry Hopwood in Liverpool told me, “it’s like being in prison”. This prison has invisible walls’. John Pilger – ‘Smashing Kids’ 1975
But think about it; until very recently – until the British exceptionalism mask began to slip – these emotional map pins had in net emotional effect always been placed by and then perversely, worked for the very same ‘British’ Governments deliberately engineering depression; through child hunger, life-long debt and debilitating poverty in the first place. Doing so most recently via austerity policy propaganda, to deliver a socioeconomic apartheid and increased concentrations of absolute and relative poverty driving inequality and agitation. But who then themselves working with their corporate partners, ‘community nation‘ capitalised financially, emotionally – and nostalgically – to propaganda drive ‘our’ individual & collective British identity reflected in the manipulated emotion of it all to ‘confirm‘ who ‘we‘ are, housed in how ‘special‘ Britishness supposedly is.
Yet it’s all driven by the same UK Government that more than any other ‘British’ institution, typifies the ‘British’ condition – as does Marcus Rashford MBE himself – by equating as he infers in his tweets, that by fulfilling this most basic of humanitarian needs to be a uniquely ‘virtuous’ and ‘characteristically British‘ act of compassion. Rather than simply processing that human empathy regardless of nationality is the real underpinning motivation for such humane acts. So can we please, open our eyes to see – and to feel – this paradoxic hypocrisy?
And to attempt to illustrate this human empathy point is this impromptu picture captured by a parent of their unsuspecting preadolescent son in front of a ‘Helping Hands Rabbits’ sculpture at the Peter & Paul Museum in St Petersburg, Russia.
Cognitively unequipped to process reality, to translate the inanimate context of the scene, the boy is driven by emotion; by base human instinct – in this case – by empathy, by love, to help the rabbits lift their friend.
It’s an especially symbolically poignant picture from my ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ perspective, in that, this Russian scene that could be played out anywhere on the planet, is in itself a representation of the ‘British benevolence’ illusion; with the art-piece an emotive distraction designed, engineered and installed (ceramic poppy displays) set on a plinth (set-up by the Etonian profiteering elite) with the immovable rabbits (cyclical State-induced poverty and depression) collectively serving to invisibly drive we charitable, yet broken ‘children’ (as the ‘adults’ are in the book) to ‘help‘ – but who could never succeed in ‘helping‘ to end poverty, hunger and homelessness – because such is the design and the reality – we were never meant to succeed.
Like the child, we were never meant to succeed because its sheer impossibility was designed, engineered and then installed as a fable; an entertainment piece posing as a ‘reality‘ in which we working masses were cognitively unequipped to process that we actually ‘exist’ in an emotional-Matrix.
We have been policy and propaganda enveloped within a manufactured, emotionally manipulated sense of unconscious ‘morally superior‘ British bias – simply for taking care of the most basic of human rights – which is as astronomically astounding as it is pervasively hypocritical – a bit like accepting an MBE from the very same regime responsible for the socioeconomic carnage and if #ToryAnalytica succeed in their overall plan – for the impending and inevitable societal chaos.
Chaos which I detailed in my Open Letter to The Irish Oireachtas and outlined in this short video I made on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin to warn the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy (& three other agencies) in 2017, that a US & UK led global fascism was coming…
“Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’.
But it’s not Marcus Rashford’s or the populations’ fault as a whole because this ‘treat them mean – keep them keen’ indoctrination that conflates empathy with ‘patriotism’ is how we’ve been post-WWII Psychosocial Engineered from Toddler to Teenager to Tabloidhood, and in ever-increasing concentrations since the Thatcher era.
An era, that in accordance with Orwell’s impeccably predicted timing, oversaw then sealed our normalisation of militarisation #PatrioticPoverty fate over the course of two necessary and successive generations – Baby Boomers & GenX – housed in a normalised, cyclically drip-fed deliberate State induced depression; in psychological and physiological deprivation of dignity across communities, that by coordinated, orchestrated design also cyclically lionised soldiers as a recruitment tool that’s very recruitment model itself – always needed to keep ex-soldiers hungry and homeless.
“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders but they have never failed to imitate them”. James Baldwin.
Why? Because the British elite estate knew only too well the predictable emotional-behavioural human condition would step in to fill the deprivation-void – especially just as ‘austerity’ was about to hit – in preparation to ‘organically’ hijack the once-sombre poppy to create recruitment displays; to emotionally entice, compel, and coerce impressionable teenagers into a military uniform and thereby *gaslight sustain the State cycle* of ‘legitimised’ mass-murder, and…
“Edward (VII) owed his triumphs primarily to himself through his profound knowledge of the human heart. And the sagacity with which he could sort out the vices and weaknesses of individuals and people’s and make these into the worst and most destructive weapons against them. Edwards Empire was built on eternal human folly and on intellectual and moral degradation of the subject populations.” Webster Tarpley – ‘How Edward VII Started WWI’ (1995)
…which in the case of these annual Remembrance images reflecting ‘real’ life throughout this piece, are carried out in everyday ‘Stepford‘ displays of UK-corporate ‘community spirit‘ against the ‘Great British Brainwash‘ backdrop of burgeoning supermarket shelves stacked with food-produce propaganda emblazoned with a drip-fed tsunami of Union Flags, which itself is just the latest pervasive facet of the ‘British’ illusion housed in its perennial-patchwork; by ‘top-down’ colonial design sealed within a projected and injected corporate-political propaganda construct designed to siphon-off the wealth created by the working masses throughout this island, in order the elite can funnel the fruits of our labour and industry to themselves with our patriotic poverty ‘permission‘ – and of course, to cyclically hand-over to them our most precious of resources – our children.
“The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion”. Einstein
However as we sleepwalked through this ‘emotionalism for militarism’ Matrix – this new normal – the Tories, using unrivalled Machiavellian policies and propaganda – concurrently pointed this very same ‘patriotic‘ and relative poverty finger at immigrants and minorities, who are being set-up to be the forefront of the initial backlash…
“Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying targets for hatred”. Goebbels
…by fomenting a dual-State ‘superiority-persecution complex’ by media-standardised hypocrisy forever fuelling the far-right and to relentlessly feed fear that permissions the general population to ‘blame’ outsiders; to blame powerless people for homeless ex-soldiers – when as Darren Lewis wrote above, a year ago in October 2019; ‘Britain’s ten biggest military charities have combined assets of £1.4 billion – with reserves of £280 million – just sitting there, catching dust‘.
“How can wealth persuade poverty to use its political power to keep wealth in power? Here lies the whole art of Conservative politics in the twentieth century.” ~ Nye Bevan
All whilst #ToryAnalytica took the invisible #CommunityNation propaganda credit for ‘leading’ us – when it was always we working masses ourselves that “pulled together” across desperate communities that were being deliberately delivered into a mass induced depression by Tory policies orchestrated with, and platformed by, complicit mainstream media propaganda simultaneously engineering the current #HostileEnvironment – by deploying their own ideological decoys, gifting Farage, UKIP and The Brexit Party with Parliamentary unrepresentative platforms, to imperceptibly shift the Overton Window to the far-right and drip-feed drive the population – not reflect it.
“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in shapes of your own choosing”. Orwell
And when we can finally process that we were in fact subjected to a concerted propaganda campaign in expectation management we’ll process how UK ‘democracy‘ actually works and where the manufactured ‘strength‘ of the Brexit ‘movement‘ really resides – where it always did – in UK-corporate mainstream media propaganda; in #ToryAnalytica’s own ideological decoys platformed by orchestrated print, broadcast and social media sock-puppets and bot farms.
This is the painful reality; the unacknowledged truth of it all – that the corporate-political class had planned to capitalise on ‘It’ from the outset, to turn their mass media Dark Triad divide and rule propaganda projected emotional currency into financial and patriotic ‘Pied Piper’ profit – and perpetually recycle it all by branding it ‘British values’ – housed in the #Amalgamate emotional-behavioural driver of my Dark Triad Model For Global Fascism (© 2017 – p88 in the book)…
…a model for the wholesale drill-down division of global democracies by creating at least two sides of everything and anything – predominantly based in identity politics and especially by #GenderAgenda – to foment old prejudices and newly manufactured societal fault-lines, just as a flotilla of Facebook pages in UK coincided with the formation of the British Army’s #ToryAnalytica trained 77 ‘PsyOps’ Brigade, resulting in the emergence online ‘poppy police’ driving ‘real‘ life with its most loyal stalwarts ‘superiority-seeking‘ to be ‘offended‘ by those who refuse to get on board.
“Hatred is gained as much by good works as by evil”. Machiavelli
We have ALL been played. In UK we’ve been drip-fed tsunami steeped and submarine-sealed in a British-patriotic profiteering, engineering #Volksgemeinschaft model, which is set to destroy us all by turning the working masses against each other upon a #ToryAnalytica’s #Amalgamate trigger (I’ll come to that in a moment) to leave only the elite estate standing with their corporate-political power structures in tact; not least the power structure they cyclically planted within our heads since pre/adolescence, to;
#Patriotise (the #CommunityNation)
#Mobilise (recycle) population(s)…
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting”. Sun Tzu
The links below show in detail how the manipulated emotion of it all is intrinsically intertwined with seemingly ‘unrelated’ Dark Triad agendas – in Brexit, austerity and ‘The Istanbul Convention‘ – and how through UK Government (& far beyond) policies and Goebbels “invisible propaganda”, ‘It’ is all made to sub/consciously connect to drive our so-called ‘free will’; to coerce and channel our emotions and our subsequent so-called ‘choices’ to convert socioeconomic cannon-fodder into conventional battlefield cannon-fodder. In a word; gaslighting.
“He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother”. Orwell, 1984.
This is how on a global scale ‘The Party’, or ‘The Corpolitique’ have been and still are ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ – that’s you – as they scramble desperately for their delayed PlanB trigger to militarise mainland Britain and as perennial lapdog of US Imperialism, enable the UK side of the ‘Special Relationship‘ elite estate to ‘formally’ align themselves ideologically, financially and militarily, via a catastrophic £-pound crashing crisis capitalism pretext, for the good old US of A – yes, Trump and Brexit are the same failing coup – to ride to the gaslight ‘rescue‘ of #ToryAnalytica’s asset-stripped, corporate-partner privatised and indebted ‘Global Britain‘ – with the military boots focussed on oil-rich Scotland – as well as in northern English cities – like Liverpool & Manchester – who’ve had their fill of Etonian elites and their State and mogul media propagandists.
And then in all the carnage – just as the ‘Special Relationship’ oligarchy blamed and targeted oil-rich Iraq after 9/11 – use the emotion of ‘It‘ to mobilise a domestic-UK & US-led truly global fascism, by blaming it on a so-called ‘cyber-attack‘ by oil-rich Iran…

“Invading Iran, taking it over and then coercing it into becoming a different sort of country would take a million men”. Fmr Royal Navy First Sea Lord, Admiral West – 20th May 2019.
…recruitment for which was and indeed still is, relentlessly and incessantly taking place via austerity, Brexit ‘patriotism’ and a seemingly unconnected yet precedented ‘RAMPANT SEXISM’ propaganda channelling, which far from being merely about ‘misogyny‘ – believe me that’s just lazy, bias-confirmation stereotyping, it is actually ‘reverse psychology’ designed to demonise, dehumanise and guilt shame young men into military uniform on a mass scale;
In fact, it’s a twice 20th century precedented male guilt-shaming campaign (picture below) that for a third time is well underway having taken the next logical step on its current unprecedented scale, to realise its ambition submarine-sealed within a 21st century global communications network, doing so with an infinitely enhanced efficient effect;
Suffragette ‘White Feather Women’ in WWI propaganda depiction reads; ‘Suddenly producing a large white feather, she jabbed it into his waistcoat. And in another tone, fierce and scornful she added:…”You coward! Why don’t you enlist?”
I began tracking ‘It‘ in September 2016, just over a year before the subliminal mind-fuck became the overt, inescapable, mass emasculation mainstream media prison planet in October 2017. However in my June 2017 released book (via Berlin) I simply called it the ‘gender agenda‘ but you know It by another name. You know It as #MeToo – and *this* is ‘The #MeToo Truth of Nr5 #RampantSexism’ – also known as ‘The Istanbul Convention‘ – crucial to which is the wholesale erasure of an entire third (plus) of overall reported domestic violence victims – men.
This is why I describe ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ as ‘a paradigm shift in the meaning of domestic abuse‘ and ‘the Atlantic Bridge to ‘1984‘ – Orwell’s landmark ‘fiction‘ set in the rubbled ruins of ‘Airstrip One’. Only, the thing is he wasn’t able to tell us how the ‘rubbled ruins‘ came to be.
“The consequences of every act are included in the act itself”. Orwell
But I can tell you exactly how – and where – after the original plan – ‘#OpFukuglaschu‘ – was catastrophically interrupted in Berlin on the 25th June 2017, with the current PlanB housed in the cracks of a cryptic ‘Yellowhammer’ anagram of ‘Orwell Mayhem’ and Dominic Cummings use of “Meltdown” symbolism for a “microwave oven ready Brexit” – via the dilapidated – yet ‘inexplicably’ restarted – Hunterston nuclear reactor on the west coast of Scotland.
“If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared”. Machiavelli
This is after EDF & the UK ‘Government’ Office for Nuclear Regulation arbitrarily doubled the number of allowable cracks in the core casing from 350 to 700, which is now projected – should EDF/ONR succeed in literally running it into the ground – to result in a thousand catastrophic-failure cracks. The Orwellian “consequences included in the act“ – can only end one way; inevitably dragging the ‘patriotic‘ Anglosphere survivors towards its dystopian trajectory on the global stage, to exactly where and ‘when‘ intended; ‘1984‘…
