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

(2-3 mins) I think it speaks volumes of the psychology of a person and even more so of the gestalt of a group, who in one of the most vibrant, emotionally rewarding and spiritually uplifting experiences in the world – the Glastonbury Festival – has the ‘sudden urge’ to draw a caricature ‘I ❤️ Hitler’ on his t-shirt, whilst he and his friends daub Hitler stereotype-moustaches on themselves and engage in Nazi salutes.

Me? Drunk or not, had I felt compelled to draw a moustache caricature on my t-shirt when I went during the Glastonbury 1998 mud-fest, I’d have gone for Charlie Chaplin – complete with iconic hat and cane.

But then unlike ‘comedic’ propaganda agitator and Labour ‘centrist’ infiltrator Tan Smith or ‘Supertanskiii’ – I’m not a closet fascist; who along with a significant number of high-profile politicians, mainstream media ‘journalists’ and blue-tick social media fifth columnists – ousted Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader in 2019.

Often, as a display their power and knowledge, such Machiavellian characters can’t help but wave their deeper thoughts, being and demons in their intended targets faces – especially when they’re drunk. So when someone shows you who they are sober too – doing so repeatedlybelieve them. No matter how hard they keep doubling-down…

after the horse has already bolted.

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty”. Joseph Goebbels (attributed)

NB – For those unfamiliar with Chaplin’s parody depiction of Hitler and his iconic anti-war speech from his 1940 classic ‘The Great Dictator’ – you’re welcome…
