Without Poverty…

by Johnny McNeill – unpublished author of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (© 2017 – free download released via Berlin on 25th June 2017).

“In the long run, hierarchical society was only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have some good, close pals who whilst not fully understanding my work, have supported and encouraged me with their friendship and constructive feedback; a common thread being how complicated ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ is and couldn’t I “make it easier to understand?”

I think I’ve found a way and it’s this;

Without poverty there’s no hierarchy. Without hierarchy there’s no indoctrination. Without indoctrination there’s no ignorance. Without ignorance there’s no ‘British’ identity.

That’s it. That’s the piece.

For further detailed explanations please see the small selection of links below I’ve written since 2017, regarding how our emotions and indeed our pervasive #PatrioticPoverty ‘reality’ across continents, has been sealed by inter-generational normalisation throughout our entire lives and manipulated to elicit predictable emotional-behavioural responses, including induced depression and all the societal fallout that comes of ‘It‘ driven by the deprivation of dignity; only for the potential of it to be ‘restored‘ by the State in a pseudo-patriotic “prison without walls”.

“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

Doing so through engineered poverty, hierarchy, indoctrination and ignorance to manufacture the top-down corporate-political propaganda construct we know as the ‘British’ identity, which over the last decade has been orchestrated in ever-increasing concentrations through joined-up #ToryAnalytica politicians, policies and propaganda – all of which are historically precedented in some form or other – to re-engineer the ‘normalisation of militarisation’ in a “perfect dictatorship”, not only in a forever ‘country’ called ‘Britain’, but across entire democracies around the global-western world (see short video and links below).

The various poverty images were scenes photographed in 1960/70’s Glasgow. These images – and their fallout – have been deliberately recreated across UK by the British elite-estate during the last decade via their ‘austerity’ apartheid joint policy and propaganda construct (graphic below) which continues today via the economic effects of their #BrexitCoup criminality and deliberate UK Government COVID ‘incompetence’ and corruption – all of which are the same ideological war on the working masses; a war which would be impossible to conduct without propaganda omission and commission being carried out by the complicit UK mainstream media. As such – and because they were caught in the act – #ToryAnalytica attempted militarisation is inevitable and the British State and corporate media will attempt to validate it. #TickTockTroops

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism; “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’.

    1. Regarding your most recent blog exposing poverty apartheid and before that your previous one highlighting the inevitability of British state militarization –
      How come you only deal so obliquely with Covid and corruption? It’s the mechanism!

      The medical apartheid in ISRAEL now could be here soon.
      To me the evidence of corruption is in direct proportion to the stringency of Lockdown and attendant abuses. Its logical conclusion is the marginalisation or forced vaccination of those resisting. Since I believe in freedom of choice and democratic governance, my normal vote in the upcoming Holyrood election is already negated by recent trends.

      Child poverty? Forcing children to wear masks at school should already have us all up in arms.

      1. There are certain interpretations I have that people just don’t want to hear, being as they conflict with everything they thought to be true, such as #MeToo being a precedented propaganda campaign to divide, rule and recruit entire societies to conflicting, invented ‘causes’ principally housed in old-fashioned identity-politics;

        ‘The #MeToo [LGBT & Gender Agenda] Truth of Nr5 #RampantSexism’ (2020) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-1Y2

        So it’s a case of picking my battles (I’ve just been restricted by Facebook – again) to concentrate on the messages people are experiencing for themselves but will also be receptive to.

        Unfortunately conditioned-bias combined with fear are powerful logic-inhibitors so the COVID propaganda still prevails. For what it’s worth my interpretations on COVID being an ideological weapon remains unchanged since I wrote this piece;

        ‘The Coronavirus Con – Iraq Revisited: By Global Boogeyman Gaslight ‘Contagion’ (2020) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-1CT

        And indeed, I ‘predicted’ the use of such a contagion strategy in 2019 – when Boris Johnson was calling for it in plain view;

        ‘Trump & Brexit: The ‘#DarkTriad’ Model for a Global Fascist Contagion’ (2019) https://wp.me/p94Aj4-17y

        with #ToryAnalytica’s ‘incompetent’ response being a continuation of their austerity apartheid and wider #HostileEnvironment policies;

        Which is why;

        and attempted militarisation inevitable, which mainstream media will attempt to validate;

      2. Thanks very much for your very swift and thorough reply.
        I appreciate that you can’t take on the world single – handedly and that you foresaw the contagion strategy BJ would employ.
        This Scottish government has been so exemplary in its assumption and execution of the emergency powers his strategy bequeathed, that it’s a commonplace here in Scotland that he’s incompetent!

        It’s not governnent incompetence that’s the problem with Covid as you implied but tyranny.

        Co-optingthe fair sex to Scottish governmental approval is a very real sub-plot.

  1. I was brought up in Tyne and wear, we were poor, and factory work did my parents in eventually, no elixir for long life for the working class. Lucky to get six months of a state pension.
    Came to live in Scotland late 80’s, and worked in Castlemilk on an art project for a short while, the housing was dire, compared to what we had been brought up in, a post war council house semi. I read not so long ago that the British government having invested in house building in England after WW2, just about managed to be bothered to build some slums for people in Scotland, with the few quid they had left over. It was an after thought!

    When I saw an exhibition of photographs, taken in the 1979/80’s about housing in Scotland, (Edinburgh and Glasgow), not so long ago, some of the pictures we see here in your article, I was really shocked. It looked like the 1930’s photos of parts of Newcastle, maybe a bit later but certainly not in the 70/80’s. The housing there wasn’t great, areas like Scotswood, and a horrible concrete jungle built across the Tyne in Gateshead which was such a societal disaster the architect apparently killed himself, but, generally, if my memory serves me right no one we knew lived in such slums as they were having to in Scotland, post war.

    The English government have form in keeping the poor poor, blaming the poor for being poor, there are no words to describe my contempt for the Tories and pretendy lefty Labour that would be printable. What they did to Scotland and the people of Scotland in suppressing their right to self determination, while removing Scotland’s massive wealth, etc, is just bloody criminal. They will do it again though, which is why I for one am terrified of what they will do to thwart an SNP win in the May election.

    No BritNat London HQ’d party will ever do any good for Scotland, quite the opposite.
    I hope peoples’ memories are long, because the BritNat legacy of centuries of rule in Scotland cannot be reversed without a Scottish party in government nor without independence.

    1. Thank you for this. As a GenX child I witnessed those same Glasgow tenements slum conditions in the late 70’s & early 80’s.

      However this in itself was entirely engineered too, as one of the darker aspects of the scene you paint is that the UK elite estate have known all along how to ‘addict’ us to such deprivation and have done so in concentrations since the mid-1980’s:

      As for the removal of Scots and the funnelling of wealth, that was supposed to continue unchallenged and even ‘assisted’ by unwitting independence supporters in 2017…

      1. Yes it certainly was engineered. If you look at say, books on geological surveys, the only reason they decided, maybe late 1800’s, to survey Scotland well after England was surveyed, was because they realised just how much coal and gas and other minerals were there to extract and massively profit from. Even Scotland’s rocks were quarried and much was exported, some to London and elsewhere in England, still is in fact.
        Keeping people poor, desperate and in some cases destitute, was and is a means of control. It’s absolutely criminal.
        I will check out the link and others, thanks, will share as well when on a decent device.
        All the best. H.
