Outline: don’t rely on the centre-left ‘blue-tick’ political commentariat to lead us out of this deepening fascist abyss. They are more concerned with safeguarding their individual and collective-peer image, than they are in defending democracy. Conversely, there’s also a very select few on the ‘left’, who I suspect are actively, furtively working to undermine democracy. In short, there’s no politician or journalistic knight in shining armour coming to our rescue. We – the people – are on our own, caught between competing ego’s; between cowardice and complicity.
If you’ve never heard the term ‘rubbernecking’, it’s that near irresistible urge driven by our morbid sense of curiosity, that compels us to slow down when driving alongside a car crash on the opposite carriageway, observing the carnage from a safe distance, then occasionally ‘justifying’ or validating this behaviour with an empathy-filled hindsight bias ‘expertise’ about how it all must have happened.
But an unavoidable, consequence characteristic of rubbernecking is that it only takes the first, leading line of drivers to rubberneck – to slow down for a look, to eventually bringing everyone else behind them to a complete standstill and who caught between exits – are forced to stay on the carriageway, unaware of the true cause of the chaos up ahead but most certainly affected by it.
And this is where we’ve been since Theresa May’s ‘mystifying’ triggering of Article 50 in March 2017. And it’s where we’ll stay ‘narrative trapped’, until such time the congested dual-carriageway is cleared – in order to work at full capacity again, in this case by applying some critical thinking.
So, can you imagine being in a position before the actual impact and resulting carnage ever took place, to warn each of the crash victims and leading drivers in advance – how they could avoid the worst of the collision and in doing so help all the people behind? The stuff of science fiction right? Well, not always – as I outline in this short video I made on 25th June 2018;
But try as I have, with Facebook already having shut my personal & #GaslightingGilligan accounts just as my ‘V for Volksgemeinschaft: We’re All In It Together – Or Else’ piece was set to go viral…
…and with Twitter continuing to suppress me (prior to complete deletion no doubt) I’ve been unable to get the reach necessary to warn as many people as possible of the coming car-crash carnage, for which, #ToryAnalytica are attempting to agitate what’s left of their own Brexiteer support (most of it is mainstream and social media amplified) onto the streets as ‘anti-maskers’.
And having tried & failed for three years to get one single, solitary centre-left politician or high-profile commentator on board (via email too) it hasn’t actually stopped a few ‘journalists’ from plagiarising some of my less controversial interpretations from three years ago, which underpin my 2017 book itself set in ‘NarciSState‘ with its people indoctrination-steeped in a martyrdom/victimhood culture through ‘Patriotic Programming: From Toddler to Teenager to Tabloidhood’, resulting in collective narcissistic, dual-State ‘superiority persecution complex‘…
‘Fascism, steeped in pathological hypocrisy, superiority entitlement & inveterate victimhood, is the group-characteristic extension of narcissism and is the Machiavellian-patriotic, militarised business model extension of joint Government & corporate engineered crisis-capitalism’. – ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’.
…but which now, with BylineTimes – a repeat plagiarism offender…
…now setting itself up as the next big thing in ‘alternate’ media with a TV station in a fledgling effort to ‘counter’ the behemoth Murdoch media, but also doing a bang-up job of burying the very existence of comparative ‘minnow’ ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘ (to BylineTimes) having already afforded themselves the potential to draw or direct traffic away from my blog – with strikingly ‘similar’ articles, using similar key words that are likely to be used by people during online searches. Read into that what you will…￼
However I’ve also come to understand that the less divisive Twitter political ‘celebrities’ are more sub/consciously preoccupied with their peer-group reputation & standing – than they are with processing political reality; with democracy; or indeed with their children’s futures – such is the power of the ego and specifically in this case, the effect of reinforced ‘shame’ conditioning commonly associated with and levelled at ‘conspiracy theorists’.
But more than that, I’ve also come to understand that #ToryAnalytica not only know this power of herded ego – they’re absolutely banking on it.
They’re banking on the blue-tick Twitterati, these leading-drivers at the front of the slowing ‘jam’ to stay ‘safe’ and keep the rest of us penned-in on the carriageway, having failed to exit the ‘narrative trap’ to seek an alternative route; not unthinkingly via SatNav but by good old fashioned map-reading housed in historical precedence and critical analysis of the contemporary evidence; one aspect of which has lazily stopped at misogyny, instead of fully processing the entirety of Nr5 #RampantSexism, that’s precedented purpose is to divide and rule society and recruit its young men, by guilt shaming them into military uniform via a contemporary, ideological and technologically upgraded ‘white feather media’ propaganda campaign, coupled with #PatrioticPoverty channelling. It just needs its somewhat delayed militarising trigger.
“Original minds are not distinguished by being the first to see a new thing, but instead seeing the old, familiar thing that is overlooked as something new”. Friedrich Nietzsche.
And it’s the complete absence of this ability to read an old fashioned roadmap to totalitarianism – which has resulted in these ‘blue-tick’ drivers, believing themselves to be sitting behind the steering wheel but actually little more than blinkered Groundhog Day-trippers posing as journalists, ‘rubbernecking’ the slow-mo car crash, with ordinary people mere passengers helplessly being steered by a collective-commentariat ‘stroke-victim’ careering head-on into the oncoming traffic and into the foreseeable carnage (on this side of the ‘carriageway’ as well as the one on the other side of the #AtlanticBridge & the #TrumpPutin Presidency – because spoiler alert – they’re the same fucking coup!)
We’re caught between competing ‘superior’ egos: between #ToryAnalytica evil intent and commentariat inflated incompetence. And noticeably, many of these competing egos are Oxford & Cambridge graduates who between them have dominated the political discourse direction of travel since 2016.
We can of course expect the different #ToryAnalytica branches to back each other and even pretend to berate one another in public as Farage does Johnson, whilst they effect their collective #ToryAnalytica HQ agenda shifting the Overton Window ever further far-right. And whose Tufton Street outriders have already well and truly familiarised themselves with ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘;
But it’s the unwittingly complicit centre-left household names who’ve enabled this unfolding fascism – because without their unimaginative inertia #ToryAnalytica could never have held onto Downing Street for four fucking years. Nor could they have held onto the broadcast media outlets who are not only #Volkgemeinschaft emotionalising ‘news‘ at every pretext turn but will attempt to ‘validate’ their pivotal military deployment.
Nope, not a single centre-left ‘journalist’ has stepped outside their own Dunning-Kruger comfort zone to even ask, or indeed challenge my #GaslightingGilligan interpretations, but yet they’re always well aware of each other’s Twitter presence, ready to hand-out self-congratulatory mutual reach-arounds – without ever having moved forward in four years – to arrive at the only logical, precedented, Occam’s Razor conclusion: militarisation is inevitable.
Intellectually hobbled and wearing their Blighty blinkers – aka British exceptionalism – they put their heads above the parapet but only so far as that which they perceive will be ‘acceptable’ to their peers through safe scripts and as such, have continuously allowed themselves to be cyclically confined to, buffeted by and therefore fed into #ToryAnalytica’s narratives – which has actually served to lend these narratives ‘legitimacy’ even though they’re steeped in demonstrable lies and corruption – which is precisely the same outcome the UK Governments’ mainstream media stenographers sets out to achieve, and so the cycle continues.
The centre-left ‘great and good’ have done this for four years; reacting rather than proactively setting their own narratives that not only fire the imagination, but fuel realistic possibilities – with truth – no matter how dark, in order to get ahead of Dominic Cummings tiresome victimhood-steeped propaganda playbooks.
And one such imaginative, yet realistic narrative housed in truth to get #ToryAnalytica on the back-foot is this;
‘Any ‘democratic’ decision that needs to be enforced or ‘supported’ by a Government deployment of the military – #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) by Gaslighting Gilligan
You see, after going to and warning Berlin via the German Bundes (Government) Polizei and the Irish Embassy (& three other agencies) on 25th June 2017 and as I spelt out in ‘Brexit: All Roads Lead To Rome – Militarisation’ (link below) after the September 2018 revelation that #ToryAnalytica already had their #OpYellowhammer plan to militarise ‘democracy’ (surely the Mother of all oxymorons?!) it should have been abundantly clear back then that such a catastrophic militarisation measure surely signalled the end of UK democracy!
This is why militarisation is inevitable. Because it tends to be the pivotal element of a coup d’etat. Especially a failing one.
So, for those Brexit commentators who’ve amassed a sizeable social media following – well done. But we need to understand this; it’s either because it’s their clandestine role to dominate the discourse space and therefore contain the narratives (as is the raison d’etre of the complicit mainstream media – see my 2017 piece ‘Tedious Twitter Twaddle’) or because these accounts have nothing too controversial or even dangerous to say, above and beyond that which everyone else with a blue-tick is also reacting to and feeding into.
I’ve played polite up until now. Very patiently so, having again tried to communicate via Twitter & email – to no avail. (If they don’t acknowledge me then I don’t exist right?!) I’ve been patient with the ambitious ‘alternate’ media egos who’ve rehashed my work as their ‘own’ – though even if Mr Menbiot didn’t go so far as to directly spell-out how in essence, ‘Fascism & Empire: Militarist-Capitalist Branding (Brexit) Bias by Patriotic Commission & Camouflaged Omission’ (© 2017) – are the same murderous beast by different indoctrination branding.
So after my three years since going public with #GaslightingGilligan via Berlin, here’s my gloves-off message to all Brexit blue-tick rubberneckers:
You’re passengers. You always have been. You’re not steering anything. You’re being steered. Like cattle; like the bovine oblivious erudite docile you’ve consistently demonstrated yourselves to be since 2017.
Get a grip of yourselves and your self-absorbed, inflated image – because you’re blocking the road ahead and preventing those of us – who are actually capable of reading a totalitarian roadmap – but are being prevented from exiting this #ToryAnalytica #BrexitCoup carriageway – because of all the congestion; egotistical and complicit.
Because by hook or crook, #ToryAnalytica are already setting-up the UK population – again – to be put back down, by its own COVID-19 COBRA Cabinet ‘serial incompetence’ and corruption and/or by a power-symbolism “microwave oven ready” Brexit – via the dilapidated, yet restarted #HunterstonB reactor to ‘restore order‘.
My warning to you is engage with and cognitively process our relentless, deliberately demoralising political propaganda reality, before it engages with and ‘processes’ us all – militarily. If you can’t get behind ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’, if you can’t bring yourself to get behind a ‘conspiracy theorist’ – then moooove the fuck out the way.
Because your ego’s are sleepwalking us towards a slaughter; with your collective complacency, your altogether underwhelming examples of moral courage and wholesale lack of intuitive imagination to arrive in an inevitable reality, in which all things Brexit: All Roads Lead To Rome – Militarisation.
Stop. Fucking. Rubbernecking.
