“The most powerful form of lie is the omission”. Orwell, ‘1984’.
Brexit is demonstrably unworkable without military ‘support’ which will inevitably and foreseeably become military force. This in any political language – including that warped by British exceptionalism – is conventionally called a coup d’etat.
Yet not a single UK corporate broadcaster, established British press media publisher or ‘journalist’ on the ‘left’ or ‘right’ seems to have realised this, never mind informed and reinforced this basic democratic fact for public consumption, discussion and processing.
Instead, the wholesale UK corporate media continues to both agitate and psychologically soften-up the population to support militarisation through a process of ‘normalisation’ (Yuri Bezmenov) and which Chomsky termed “manufacturing consent”, through a drip-fed fear-saturated process similar to that which we all witnessed in the Iraq WMD lie in 2003.
Only this lie in 2021, which without public support cannot possibly succeed (but can do a lot damage trying) is attempting to deliver a UK domestic military deployment – by ongoing ‘inevitability narrative’ for when the desperately cornered Tories finally concoct their latest ‘PlanB’ pretext to pull the trigger, which ideally (for the Tory cartel) will be delivered via a seemingly ‘unrelated’ UK National Emergency; either by a ‘Global’ Britain based crisis-capitalism catastrophe and/or war ‘validated’ by the same media outlets that sent us to the illegal war in Iraq.
Moreover, in the absence of such a UK coup d’etat discussion being initiated by the Leader of The Opposition Kier Starmer, his Shadow Cabinet, or indeed the entire centre-left online independent media – it seems genuine centre-left politicians and commentariat have been rendered docile, intellectually redundant Groundhog Day passengers incapable of acknowledging;
‘Any democratic decision that needs to be enforced or ‘supported’ by a Government deployment of the military – i.e. #OpYellowhammer – in order it can maintain or secure political power via the streets, ports and infrastructure etc, is in fact in any conventional, consistent, rational-thinking and ‘functioning democracy’ – a coup d’etat’. ‘Brexit: All Roads Lead to Rome – Militarisation’ (*2018*)
So that’s the first lie we’ve allowed ourselves to become enveloped within; because deploying military force when you’re ‘The Party’ creating the chaos is not supporting democracy – it’s overthrowing it!
And as such the authentic democratic socialists – Facebook group-page admins and Twittering professional journalists alike – all appear to be waiting for a peer ‘permission’ from their mainstream corporate media colleagues or a leading political figure, to give the green-light to simply begin exploring this sheer logic and in doing so generate mass public discussion.
However this UK corporate media led ‘permission’ is never going to happen. Because what is abundantly clear by now – or rather it should be if our ‘experts’ would only cognitively process the evidence objectively instead of emotionally as they try to sustain their sense of British ‘fair play’ prism, is this;
‘By inserting Farage, UKIP and their other low-level right-wing agitators into UK’s mainstream media fronted dummy ‘democracy’ – it was the British Establishment themselves who put the ideological cart-before-the-horse, not to reflect and inform the population but to drip-feed drive us in their predetermined direction’. ‘Farage to GB News: The Tories Own Trojan Horses’ (2021)
So what could it be that’s preventing the independent centre-left media, Labour, SNP, LibDems and Green Party from supporting this most basic of political-ideological assumptions; that a politically militarised democracy is not a ‘democracy’ but a dictatorship?
Well, two factors;
The first and most pervasive factor is individual and collective ego. Not one single high-profile political figure has had the humility or moral courage to apply the ‘coup d’etat’ common sense. Why? Because it would require them to step outside the pyrrhic ‘safety’ of the herd.
As such, without a healthy degree of introspection, genuine honest-to-goodness centre-left ‘thinkers’ just aren’t thinking.
They think they thinking but they’re being sub/consciously corralled by their own individual egocentric view of themselves in the eyes of their collective peers, and so superficially and unthinkingly are simply too ‘morally superior’ to engage and too intellectually ashamed to explore the #GaslightingGilligan logic in public. So yes, in a word; ego.
However this ego-driven complicity and ‘containment’ is being augmented by a second pivotal factor which is working seamlessly and uniformly with the Goebbels-esque, Machiavellian UK corporate media through a small number of well-placed, leading and ‘trusted’ figures in the ‘centre-left’ political sphere – but who are actually Orwellian ‘Party’ plants – whose role is to feed us key aspects of truths and biases we already believe and want to hear, so that we’ll believe everything they have to ‘report’.
And crucially, through a combination of both subtle and openly crass comments these supposed ‘centre-left’ figures also toxically agitate across population demographics to draw all ‘sides’ onto the streets.
As such, upon Tory militarisation Starmer’s Labour will – as will the entire UK corporate media – attempt to placate, blame, shame and guilt-trip the public into compliance, and thereby ‘validate’ the deployment and then minimise and wave-away the valid criticisms with “We are where we are”.
This is so that we all overlook the actual coup d’etat conclusion and fearfully turn a collective blind-eye to the inevitable baton-wielding outcomes of the deployment to instead, quite absurdly, encourage the ‘country’ to unite behind the ‘elected’ Government or even an emergency Government of ‘National Unity’ i.e. an orchestrated Police State by the back door.
“To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle”. Orwell, ‘1984’.
This is why the British Establishment – right and ‘left’ – had to go all-out to oust Jeremy Corbyn because the appearance of ‘neutral’ media and ‘centre-left’ political endorsement is absolutely essential, as without it the entire propagandist ‘democratic’ construct collapses…
…and is why many ‘journalists’ are telling us certain truths now because they need us to forget their role in delivering fascism in the first place, in order we buy into what they’re about to do next; militarise and mobilise.
‘And this propaganda machine, this theatre selling front-row tickets to our so-called political ‘reality’, I strongly suspect also comes preloaded with respected ‘centre-left’ figures with seemingly unimpeachable credentials and unimpeded social media reach, to perform a vital role in #ToryAnalytica’s illusion of British ‘democracy’, with part of their Machiavellian pre-planted purpose on the ‘centre-left‘ to create ‘traffic chaff‘ on social media platforms, in order to contain counter-narratives by drawing the public away from even more dangerously simple interpretations; such as Nigel Farage and UKIP having been the media’s and the Tories very own ideological decoy driving fascism from the outset’. ‘Brexit’s Herded Ego’s: Feeding The Illusion Of A Functioning Democracy’ (2020)
And it’s all being fomented by the current deliberate demonisation of the police which is designed to further agitate and drive our predictable emotional-behavioural responses against the police and the police against the public; sustaining the years of Tory orchestrated Hostile Environment pretexts housed in Home Office political policies and HM Treasury socioeconomic policies working with and protected by corporate media propaganda spin, to divide working class society principally via all manner of identity-politics; especially gender.
So, like it or not, acknowledge it or not – #ToryAnalytica COBRA Cabinet attempted militarisation is inevitable.
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;
And being inevitable – in part because the UK corporate media keep repeatedly drip-feed ‘informing’ us so, your genuine centre-left politicians, academics and ‘celebrity’ commentators – through nothing more than an unhealthy, self-conscious preoccupation with their own individual and collective image – continue in their dereliction of duty and abject failure to protect their constituents and wider democracy from this fledgling tyranny; doing so by failing to publicly declare the perfectly fucking obvious; Brexit is a failing, mainstream media fronted fascist coup d’etat. ‘Tedious Twitter Twaddle’ (2017)
“The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everyone has decided not to see”. Ayn Rand
And yet it’s within this objective logic that another realisation exposes the even bigger, far more damaging lie than the first one being sold by cyclical propaganda omission, and it’s this;
in the current dearth of genuine political leadership to call it out, the general public has too been silenced by the same indoctrinated British exceptionalism coupled with the shame of daring to stand out and as such, are also silently complicit in sustaining Orwell’s “most powerful form of lie by omission” masking the second ‘Great’ British lie; the lie of UK ‘democracy’ which we still sub/consciously insist on selling to ourselves, our children and grandchildren – who will pay with their lives and freedoms.
