“We have cut the links between child and parent, between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

(18-20 minutes) Led by the mass-psychosis cattle-clamp nose in this fascist ‘Hostile Environment’ the corporate media have enveloped us within, bewildered and exhausted populations continue to sleep-walk through history just as ordinary German men and women did in the post-Imperial, Weimar German Republic in which millions of people were imperceptibly frogmarched towards fascism, in preparation to turn their collective hand to the business of mass murder.

And just as in 1939, today, all it needs is its victimhood-steeped militarisation and global mobilisation trigger, as I outlined in this short video;

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’.

However occasionally, just occasionally, today’s corporate media propagandists – otherwise known as so-called ‘journalists’ – get complacent, and either push their luck or simply misread the room to leave a self-inflicted glitch in their ‘misogynistic’ Matrix.

In its role to drive and divide populations, not to reflect or inform us as we once naively perceived, such a glitch appeared yesterday when the BBC put an entirely unsurprising slant on the resignation of New Zealand’s somewhat controversial Premier, Jacinda Ardern;

Often explained away as revenue-driving clickbait, such misogynistic propaganda tropes have been a staple output of both male and female mainstream media ‘journalists’ and politicians over the decades, which have been made more concentrated in recent years as it led into the Trump and Brexit era – none of which was ‘coincidence’.

“The ruling class in every age have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

And whereas in the past this propaganda would predictably agitate an angered response from women towards any man who dared step into the fray – it still does – yesterday, seeing their own headline blow up in their faces on Twitter, the BBC deleted the tweet.

However before the original offending headline disappeared from Twitter, screenshots had already been taken and posted back into the BBC’s feed;

After which, the headline was ‘updated’;

In time, like it or not, you’ll all come to see what I have since 2016/17, whereby the pervasive sense of misogyny across society is in fact concentrated-propaganda relentlessly pumped out by the western media – most notably by the Murdoch cartel – with the tropes broadcast, rebroadcast, splashed across ‘newspapers’, fed into Facebook and then tweeted then retweeted in an inescapable flatscreen prison to portray ALL men across multiple societies as misogynists and sex-pests, in order to turn women against men and men against women.

“A media system wants ostensible diversity which conceals an actual uniformity”. Joseph Goebbels

And the original, technological mass-delivery system and means of dividing Germany, yet uniting them in ‘Volksgeinschaft’ victimhood against internal and external ‘enemies’ in preparation for war, was delivered over the backbone of the Nazi propaganda machine; the Volksempfänger VE301 radio pictured here on the left of Joseph Goebbels prior to its mass roll-out in 1933.

In one fell swoop Nazi Germany’s ambitions were delivered efficiently and effectively via the cheap, mass produced Volksempfänger or “people’s receiver” to manipulate millions of bunkered minds, steeped in stoic-victimhood and militarist martyrdom to drive the herd mentality against the ‘other’. But which as ‘history’ had to brush over because it was the Volksempfänger that played the pivotal broadcast role across Germany, to succeed in channelling ordinary people’s predictable emotional-behavioural responses towards their predetermined destination; World War II.

So too then, it must follow that the murderous ambition demonstrated by the Nazi elites, simply took the next logical step on a scale directly proportionate to technological advancements to reach billions of people; now housed in instantaneous, seamless, billionaire-owned global communications systems designed to distract and maintain people’s attention with the superficial and trivial, whilst simultaneously tapping into the narcissistic worst of the human condition.

Since the inception of affordable mass produced colour TV’s in the 1970’s and more recently but even more pervasively via so-called ‘social’ media platforms since the turn of the 21st century, many of the lessons learned through ‘Operation Paperclip’ (google it) were simply dusted off to deploy the same, though updated and refined propaganda playbook to deliver relentless misogynistic messaging via mainstream media which is recycled, reinforced and amplified alongside stories of rape, sexual assaults, paedophilia and exclusively male-perpetrated domestic abuse.

But which simultaneously propaganda omits from prime-time TV broadcast media (below) endless examples of female-perpetrated violence carried out behind closed doors, in order to exclusively ‘PreCrime’ paint everyone with a penis and testicles as a monster-in-waiting and to be presumed guilty upon mere accusation.

And yes, the dangerous, divisive ‘Gender Recognition Bill’ and ‘Self-ID’ proposed by the Scottish National Party in Holyrood – curiously, just as the SNP-led Scottish independence movement was in the unstoppable ascendancy and on the verge of ending the British State and its divisive ‘dark arts’ institutions and players…

…which are also part of the orchestrated ‘Ouroboros’ or ‘Horseshoe democracy’ construct – aka ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’ – to further agitate and specifically sub-divide the female demographic (and men) who support or were about to support independence.

Which begs two key questions;

Why would the nepotistic and secretive SNP ‘leadership’ – aided by the votes of their Unionist arch-enemies in Holyrood – do this now and endanger the independence cause?

And why would they gift the patently fascist, misogynistic British Government an entirely predictable open goal for them to strike down the ‘Gender Recognition Bill’, enabling them to be seen to be ‘safeguarding women’ specifically in Scotland?

Perhaps Machiavelli might give us another steer;

Again, just as the duplicitous SNP cuckoos-in-the-nest – aided by the Green Party – have ridden roughshod over the wishes and mood of the overwhelming majority of the Scots population with their divisively-timed, self-inflicted ‘Gender Reform’ and ‘Self-ID’ disaster against the backdrop of the wider Orwellian campaign overload, via increasingly preposterous LGB/T supra-propaganda

…so too they attempted to destroy the former Leader of the SNP Alex Salmond, a genuine giant of the Scottish independence movement who is despised by the British State and its media, by coordinating to manufacture trumped-up rape and sexual assault charges…

…complete with the now normalised kangaroo court trial-by-media – dutifully led by the BBC – which continued even after he was found innocent of all charges…

…because it all feeds in to the propagandist ‘Rape Culture’ portrayed by western mass media as a whole, but which is not an accurate reflection of western societies as sold through all forms of media – including and especially in ‘entertainment’.

Indeed at every possible turn, misogyny and is injected into the story just as with the BBC’s original Jacinda Ardern headline above, in order to keep feeding the inferred and wider propagandist ‘male sex-crime’ messaging which cyclically ‘warns’ women to be ever-vigilant against the mythical rapist lurking around every corner.

“The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human”. Aldous Huxley

But it’s all another deliberate thread in the overall identity politics campaign to divide the generalised ‘opinions’ of men and women trapped within ‘the flatscreen universe: cinematic, TV and tablet’ – in which our media-stereotyped ‘experiences’ of each other are ‘solidified’ as being the incontestable ‘truth’ – not as unique individuals – but absurdly based on the type of genitalia you happened to be born with.

Unfortunately it’s virtually impossible to distinguish those caught up in the construct, from the ‘trusted’ agent provocateur ‘activists’ embedded within each movement. (Though there is a recurring social media ‘signature’ and blog-related ‘tell’ that tends to give them away).

In this way of apportioning ‘guilt’ in accordance with genitalia type, these British State provocateurs agitating thousands of their unsuspecting followers on social media – again, on all sides – serve to feed the mainstream media with apparently ‘real’ stories and headlines designed to fragment social cohesion on an unprecedented and truly global, Orwellian scale.

“We have cut the links between child and parent, between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

And the rationale for its propaganda success is simple; the majority of these unsuspecting followers are unfulfilled, attention seeking sheep incapable of critical thought and leadership.

So it’s a cinch to present the unthinking meek with a ‘celebrity’ on every ‘side’ of the conflict that they can worship without question. After which the loudest, most ‘morally-superior’, self-righteous and over-entitled sorts – who are often the emptiest of people – will always find purpose in any celebrity-led ‘cause’ that will angrily empower and permit them – within the relative safety of the herd of course – to prioritise their propaganda-manipulated feelings over objective facts.

Then, by the numbers, the media seize upon the predictable conflicting behaviours to broadcast these manufactured snapshots in time as the supposed pervasive ‘truth’ and ‘reality’, which is presented as being ‘indicative’ of entire populations in order the Government arm of ‘The Party’ can ‘justify’ the introduction of ‘hate-crime’ legislation to ‘legally’ incarcerate politicians and activists deemed a threat to the established order.

“S/He who is highly esteemed is not easily conspired against”. Machiavelli

In short; by amplifying attention-seeking behaviours, the ‘trusted’ news and celebrity-led propaganda-media popularise victimhood as a shortcut to manufactured martyrdom which instils a vacuous, ‘superior’ sense of ‘moralistic’ group-empowerment within all the State-manipulated ‘sides; so that their high-profile, Machiavellian social-media colleagues and ‘activist’ outriders can agitate the Hostile Environment and emotionally reinforce our faked ‘reality’, in order the State can then be seen to ‘legitimately’ ride to the gaslight ‘rescue’ of society, legislatively and militarily. This is how fascism is seeded and tyranny established.

This is why certain groups are permitted to impose themselves on the world – if – their behaviours fit with and perpetuate the fascist agenda goaded online by the aforementioned ‘activists’, most of whom are years-long nefarious State actors infiltrated into all movements perceived to be a threat to its supremacy i.e. the SNP, the Scottish independence movement and of course Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour.

In Scotland specifically, the most influential of the SNP stars occupying many of the key positions within the ranks of The Party, just ‘happen to be’ the ‘serendipitously’ placed 2015 elected contingent – a number of whom are themselves LGBT – who playing key roles in the Full Spectrum Dominance of Scotland, have had a somewhat ‘unusual’ meteoric rise as a direct, predictable response to the British State’s propaganda war on Scotland in 2014 – aka the ‘Independence Referendum’ – during which and since, we’ve been played like a fiddle. (As we all were in the 2016 Brexit ‘referendum’).

And who together with their orchestrated State provocateur ‘enemies’ on social media, have built up trust, reputation and social media reach and been rewarded with key positions within the SNP NEC and in Holyrood and Westminster, with the Machiavellian aim of fracturing and dividing the independence movement – and Scotland as a whole – from within. You know the adage; if something seems to good to be true – it probably is…

“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

However having made such an emotional investment in many of these SNP and Green Party politicians and high-profile activists through the Scottish independence journey (and indeed in Starmer’s Labour in England) the real challenge for people is to overcome their conditioned biases and ego defences, in order to acknowledge the behaviours of these pseudo ‘centre-left’ politicians and activists who are working for ‘The Party’.

As Orwell ‘predicted’ it’s an all-pervasive, Nazi precedented ‘reverse psychology’ propaganda war to blanket-drive mass ‘RAMPANT SEXISM’ which political scientist Lawrence J. Britt bullet-pointed on his ‘Early Warning Signs of Fascism’ placard;

For new ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ readers, this particular thread of propaganda I’ve been describing is Machiavellian-cloaked as a supposedly ‘righteous’ cause but is built on entirely fabricated ‘facts’, consisting of emotionalised lies and omissions housed in manipulated feelings and amplified, normalised mass misandry; with the purpose of driving male demonisation, dehumanisation and the wholesale mass-emasculation of working class men – which upon the militarisation trigger currently being pursued via Ukraine and Taiwan – is designed to guilt-shame millions of aimless, homeless, fatherless, austerity-skint and depressed young men and boys to seek their patriotic purpose and meaning in a military uniform.

And the name of that propaganda campaign? It’s called #MeToo. Which is why I called this piece;

‘The #MeToo (& LGBT🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️) Truth of ‘Rampant Sexism’ (2020)

And you’ll know I’m right when regardless of pretext, the Tories inevitably attempt to militarise their failing fascist Brexit coup d’etat. Which is why I called this piece;

‘Tory Militarisation of UK Is Inevitable’ (2022)

Lastly, just as related a side note, given that our ‘good-guys/bad guys’ and ‘cowboys and indians’ Anglo-Imperial ‘history’ isn’t anywhere near as clean-cut as we’ve been indoctrinated with, in the not-too-distant future this iconic scene from director Stanley Kubrick in his 1968 screen adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s novel ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, will begin make total symbolic sense;

“Symbolism is the language of the mysteries. By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the limitations of language”. Manly Hall

Because far from being ‘The Dawn of Man’, this scene was in fact depicting the dusk of humanity housed in the technological anaesthetisation of the individual conscience and the collective eclipse of mass-consciousness, which was always going to be needed by the ruling class in the contemporary age, in order to continue perpetuating cyclical genocides across entire continents…


“Writing fiction is the act of weaving a series of lies to arrive at a greater truth”. Khaled Hosseini.

‘Fascism, steeped in pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement and 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. Regardless of pretext, Tory militarisation of Brexit Britain is inevitable’. ‘Characteristics Of An Individual Narcissist & A Fascist State’ (© 2017)
