(Original version of this piece posted November 2017).
How the British (& wider Anglo-sphere) establishment elite have been attempting to militarise UK society via an #Emotionalism4Militarism ‘Matrix’; through deliberate joined-up ‘Big Society’ Government deprivation & mass depression inducing policies, via seemingly unconnected austerity, Istanbul Convention and Brexit ideological-campaigns to create a toxic-soup of emotionalised-weaponised, British patriotic, ‘community-nation’ TV-projected propaganda.
The purpose? To psychosocial engineer by gaslighting policies and propaganda, the esteem-starvation of society in general but principally young men; to choke-off their most basic safety, shelter, sexual and self-esteem Maslow’s Hierarchy needs in order the State can channel them as ‘volunteers’ – upon a militarising-trigger – as conveyor-belt cannon-fodder, to pour their individual purpose and ‘hive-mind’ meaning into a military uniform; into a #PatrioticPoverty #AusterityArmy – for a war. But not just any old war… #TickTockTroops.
Before I set out on this; I’d like to point out that I’m a 25 year served ex-British Army Sergeant-Major. That doesn’t preclude me from criticism for what I write, for what I believe to be true but remember this; if you bought into the Anglosphere governments and media messaging as I did for an entire military career, that soldiers go to war for freedom, democracy and the right to freedom of expression etc. keep holding that thought for a while longer – because you’re not going to like what you’re about to read. So don’t shoot the messenger!
As I’ve demonstrated in my model below, this is what I’ve come to understand;
Through joint media and politically ‘legitimised’ but wholly ideological austerity psychosocial behavioural-engineering propaganda ‘policy‘, the UK State has deliberately manufactured ‘tragedy’ to capitalise emotionally, then politically and financially, on a poverty-paradigm continuum of human misery; from domestic poverty to foreign wars for resources which are cyclically manipulated to keep feeding into one another; the predictable human-condition effect of this – aided by a seemingly perennial, ‘uniquely’ British ‘benevolence’ trait, is in fact a #CommunityNation building propaganda machine housed in The #DarkTriad’s #Amalgamate Venn (below) – to cause a powerful, unthinking and unstoppable cyclical-chain reaction to;
#Emotionalise #Irrationalise #Patriotise #Weaponise and upon a State-pretext *trigger* #Militarise & #Mobilise – an entire population, indeed – an entire planet.
“The best propaganda is that which, as it were, works invisibly, penetrates the whole of life without the public having any knowledge of its propagandistic initiative”. Joseph Goebbels.
By incorporating the UK media estate long-ago, the wholesale British elite-estate, has engaged in the false ‘emotionalised-empowerment’ manipulation of the masses by corporatized TV-charity contagion drives in order to irrationalise, patriotise and weaponise ‘charity’ in a long-term ‘normalising’ agenda to ‘inspire’ the population whilst imperceptibly ‘Dark Triad’ militarising it.
“Edward (VII) owed his triumphs primarily to himself, through his profound knowledge of the human heart. And the sagacity with which he could sort out the vices and weaknesses of individuals and peoples and make these into the worst and most destructive weapons against them. Edwards Empire was built on eternal human folly and on intellectual and moral degradation of the subject populations.” – Webster Tarpley ‘How Edward VII Started WWI‘
These emotionalised-weaponised TV-contagion charities, either hijacked or manipulated-State inventions from fruition, have, in increased concentrations of frequency and scale, been done so to infuse, to indoctrinate ‘inspirational’ and #PatrioticPoverty gain at the individual, family, community and national levels.
IDS gaslighting Easterhouse in Glasgow – resisting the urge to align his three closed fingers & thumb, with his index finger.
In its contemporary form since the 1980’s, the British aristocracy, ‘The Party’, ‘The Corpolitique’, have refined the art, the science, the philosophy of using Pavlov’s Classical & Skinner’s Operant Conditioning to make political-military gains by King Edward VII’s “eternal human folly”.
They have done so by cyclically capitalising, profiteering on the emotional currency of the things they do to us and deprive us of – to remove our individual & collective dignity – to induce a mass-depression – in order we ‘pull together’, this fascistic #DarkTriad propagandistic #Amalgamate ‘community nation’ (bottom-left psychosocial behavioural driver); feeding our forty-year #PatrioticPoverty addiction; this manipulated, pseudo-religion; our very own self-replenishing, self-perpetuating, ‘on-tap’ TV projected stash of escapism, forever feeding our prison-proud to be benevolently-British illusion by emotional crack-cocaine.
It’s an invisible-propaganda ‘music’ model for fascism; for #PsychosocialEngineering #MaslowsMartyrs by manipulating predictable and precedented emotional-behavioural outcomes housed in six key principal, Venn-interlinked drivers; #Invalidate #Emasculate #Isolate #Agitate #Segregate & #Amalgamate.
“I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few”. Hitler
All of this has been to ensure the elite-estate maintains power and control; that we find our individual meaning & purpose, not in our individual selves but outside of ourselves; in the ‘community nation’ emotional-‘State’, in the elite-estate who’ve wrapped themselves in ‘our’ perennial, preadolescent patriotic-programmed, militarist-Monarchist corporate-government brand – The Union Flag.
It’s all however, as yet, missing one vital unifying ingredient; a militarising spark; a Reichstag trigger to #Amalgamate the masses and concentrate minds and men – on war – both domestic and foreign.
It’s of significant importance to point out, that as white-male dominated and indoctrinated organisational-environments, the police and the military already being loyal Crown-Government servants (as well as un-uniformed Ulster ‘ultra’ Unionists) uniquely start from a British ‘prism’ of #Amalgamate, making them the perfect embryonic-backbone of the furtive, fascist British Police State, which now, as a ‘PlanB’ will likely begin and be built via Dover.
However they too, as individuals & organisations – as with wholesale society subjected to all five other interlinking, furtive fascist State, #DarkTriad psychosocial emotional behavioural drivers – will in effect form the front-line for The Party; a uniformed and un-uniformed, mainland Britain, contemporary ‘Black & Tan’ terrorising-militia, concentrating minds and channelling behaviours towards British, community-nation ‘patriotism’, fascism.
“One of the great secrets of the day is to know how to take possession of popular prejudices and passions, in such a way as to introduce a confusion of principles which makes impossible all understanding between those who speak the same language and have the same interests”. – Machiavelli
A sealed-off island-‘nation’ austerity-seeded #HostileEnvironment in which preadolescent girls will become the groomed-domestic cyber-backbone and boys will be #WhiteFeatherMedia #MeTooMatrix guilt-shamed, just as they are being groomed as media-political rote-scripted “brave heroes” – into mass-rank military uniform, for the purpose of ‘Airstrip One’ perpetual war.
In short, ‘brand Britain’, Britishness is a business. It’s always been a business; in creating patriotic, psychosocial-engineered cannon-fodder.
If you’ve read this piece this far, this is where you get really pissed-off.
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”. Orwell
This British business includes BBC Comic Relief, Children In Need and the new Invictus Games which itself, has been supported by the sudden successful and ubiquitous presence of Help for Heroes in sport, sponsorship and social media; the latest campaign being complete with subliminal-recruitment messaging of “Join The Force For Good” against a video which opens with sanitised military exercise images.
Both Help for Heroes and Invictus have received unparalleled political, MoD-military and celebrity support-collaboration. I believe this has been purely for superficial publicity-recruitment purposes.
The combination of all four has imperceptibly ‘normalised’ and ushered in the advent for public permission by patriotic-adulation, to enable UK State-elite abrogation responsibility for its induced ‘human misery’ policies.
However the latter two; Help for Heroes and Invictus Games have in turn performed an emotional ‘mission-creep’ role for the oldest, most established symbol of sombre Remembrance, the Poppy – to also manifest as an emotionalised-military recruitment tool.
“Most lead lives at worst so painful, at best so monotonous, poor and limited that the urge to escape, the longing to transcend themselves, if only for a few moments, is and has always been one of the principal appetites of the soul” – Aldous Huxley 1894-1963
The British Establishment elite learned long ago, to evolve and hone through joined-up TV media manipulation methods, to perpetuate profits housed in the cycle of human misery because they already know;
State-elite imposed poverty by deliberate deprivation-denial of the individuals’ ability for internal self-actualisation, is inversely proportionate to the deprived groups needs to seek externalised-validation; which is manipulated by and in the name of the State.
Given just the right cyclically-repetitive gaslight-mix conditions, this will result in a ‘mass-actualisation’ – better known as ‘mobilisation’ – that profits the State-elite but is done so to the detriment the proud and gratefully-deprived, having been manipulated ‘poverty patriots’ by the State.
It’s bit like a behavioural-dynamic extension of trusting child who constantly seeks validation from a narcissistic parent they love, but can’t process; that the ‘love’ they feel from the solipsistic-parent is merely the child’s internalised, forlorn ‘reflection’ of their own love, with any emotion-validation they might receive in return, always conditional and always exclusively for the gaslight-empowerment benefit of the psychological-emotionally abusive parent.
This person-on-person abuse dynamic principle, also found in partner-on-partner domestic abuse relationships has been refined on a UK (and beyond) State level.
But it can only be done so, projected into the mass-psyche of a population by a joint corporate and government orchestrated mass-media.
For men in particular, the right cyclically-reinforced gaslight conditions are;
the mass-manipulation of financial-physiological (austerity) deprivation and evolved mass-media subliminal guilt-shame association by evolved TV news and current affairs ‘White Feather Women’; by soap-script; by film and TV entertainment and ads and by government legislation and secret family-law courts for psychological mass-emasculation, combined with the pincered sense of concentrated mass-media inspired ‘Pied Piper’ patriotism; of lionisation and sacralisation of the military to nurture pride in the civil population and provide a subliminal self-esteem ‘escape-route’ that will result in the mass-mobilisation of channelled ‘volunteer’ men ripe for war.
There are at least two man-made precedents for similarly-timed combinations of financial-physiological and psychological mass-emasculation which have preceded wars.
Which is where I believe we’re being taken; to war. A big one. The biggest.
However not before the elite have led the unwitting UK public into a Police and Cyber-Surveillance State; a plutocratic dictatorship disguised as a democracy.
“The conscious intelligent manipulation of the organised opinions and habits of the masses is an important element in a democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government, which is the true ruling power in our society” – Edward Bernays 1891-1995
Building on and evolving past policy and propaganda practices – not taught in State schools – the British establishment elite, having already manufactured poverty at home and abroad have learned how to further weaponise our innate-driver characteristics and condition-taught belief-systems; such as our masculinity, our femininity, our children, our families and the community, the ‘country’, the flag, the military and the Monarchy.
The latter five of these, the external cradle-to-grave programme-conditioned influences it seems, are quite intentionally and indivisibly bonded by the emotional glue that holds it all together; via a single ‘British-identity entity’ that houses a symbiotic, patriotic association and charitable-giving conditioning and whereby criticism of any one single element, has been by both classical and operant conditioning trained to be perceived as a slight on all things ‘British’.
This is why they, the British Establishment elite also furtively ‘attack’ these same British belief-systems themselves from within, to #Agitate the masses – principally – #WorkingClassWhiteMen – who are the key to controlling and owning the streets, under the guise of leftist political correctness ‘gone mad’…
A Machiavellian State Symphony
“Hatred is gained as much by good works as by evil”. ~ Machiavelli
They have inter-generationally honed their skills and ability to use the associated empathy-emotions against us in a number of ways by both negative and positive reinforcement.
They manage this with ease because inter-generational patriotic-TV and war-nostalgia film conditioning in adulthood is merely the inter-generational extension of the State-school conditioning taught in childhood.
Collectively this ‘confirms’ who we are, where our loyalties, safety and security lays; in the (superficial-exterior) charitable-benevolence of the British identity which also extols the virtues of class, culture and religious diversity but which were always needed by the Establishment to provide the pretexts for malevolence; for the Machiavellian vehicle ‘interventions’ – at home and abroad.
These interventions were always intended to keep the masses perpetually, prejudicially divided from each other; to mistrust, to be suspicious and thereby too, keep us separated just as the emotional TV-contagion does from our logical-thought and decision-making processes, as the elite-estate agitate and segregate society at large with our skin-deep racial, physiological gender and cultural-religious clothing differences – whilst concurrently keeping us all ‘united’ in one identity they gave all of us – ‘Britishness’ – as they move us towards a militarised State.
However, being the exceptional gaslighters they are, at a time of their choosing, perhaps as a post-Brexit mass civil-unrest healing process; or to manage another national act of self-harm or State-symbolic incident; to make a declaration of false-flag war; the elite-estate – the narcissistic ‘parents’ – steeping themselves in victimhood, will feign a nation needing to come together, to manifest – with the blessing of the populous – in militarised form. This is how fascism succeeds.
After which all bets are off for anything less than than a ‘One-Nation’ Britain by ‘national emergency’ & British ‘security’ interests; moving from the current blue & red #PerfectDictatorship, to a perpetual, single-Party, #TheParty, all in the so-called name of family, community and national unity, of British ‘values’ and of course to pull together in the name of ‘democracy’. This is fascism.
And this is where negative reinforcement produces a brilliantly devious and energised contagious misdirection, designed to agitate and stir a defensive ‘bunker’ mentality bringing angry, confused vocalised numbers to the rescue cause of the belief-system being ‘attacked’ – amplified of course, by a ‘sympathetic objective’ media.
Upon Marine A’s release, author Dick Francis said “Something stank” and IHAT soldiers for example being ‘attacked’ in the name of so-called ‘political correctness’ become by association-conditioning extension; to be perceived as an attack on common-sense, the flag and the Realm.
As such, those actually instigating these actions with “sensitive information” Machiavellian stealth funding behind the scenes, serve to strengthen the very same elitist-estate structures – through these external targeted groups – white working-middle class males – who’ve been manipulated; with individuals involved either physically imprisoned (Marine A) and/or psychologically imprisoned (IHAT and NI soldiers).
“A really efficient totalitarian State would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude” – Aldous Huxley 1894-1963
However this will deal largely with positive reinforcement through hyper-emotionalised, concentrated TV charity programming in order to mass-manipulate our genuine altruistic natures’ and thereby irrationalise, amplify and harness our mass cognitive-dissonance thoughts, emotions and behaviours to arrive at the same Machiavellian strengthening of the elitist-estate structures – with our hive-mind blessing – that preserves their patronage and global-military power. And the masses will love them – and themselves – for it.
And so like junkies needing a fix of smack or prison-spice in a polluted inner-city shit-hole, the elitist ‘pushers’ of the cycle of human misery are all too happy to maintain their steady supply of emotional-rollercoaster escapism.
It’s gaslighting on a mass-industrial scale – because it seems the less we have for ourselves, the more we crave to compensate, by seeking purposeful meaning outwith ourselves.
Yes, charity can be good for the soul but it can cause us to lose it, to become corrupted by it when it’s in TV prestige-presented, corporatized-government contagion form, another period of which we are just about to head into once again with Poppy Remembrance and with Children In Need against a timely nostalgia-invoking backdrop glut of corporate-Christmas TV ads. Timing is indeed everything…
And the elite know it because they know us better than we know our-too-trusting-selves.
Mainstream TV ‘news’ and much of its celebrity-driven emotional-misdirection ‘entertainment’, is weaponised-epitomised by the charity-contagion that has been made a psychological warfare weapon.
Pure and simple.
Ask yourself, these charitable causes, other than grow exponentially in poverty-proportion to the increasingly TV instilled sense of ‘British values’; of our belief-systems; children; family; community; our Armed Forces etc. – what have they actually resolved to change for the better by eradicating altogether – or even remotely mitigating – the very need for these charities themselves?
How have we allowed ourselves to forever-never hold the State to account for forever hobbling our children’s education? For forever hobbling our soldiers rehabilitation? Hobbling these strongly held ‘belief-systems’?
More importantly, why haven’t we ever done anything about it?
Because we were conditioned in childhood to love, to trust our narcissistic parent and have become cyclically entranced by ‘It’; by the normalised weaponisation of the things we love, with our ‘parent’ having broken them in the first place.
Perhaps we also haven’t done anything to change it because there’s an underlying unacknowledged guilt? Maybe we’ve become accustomed to displace our culpability as a population for forever-never ourselves, getting to the source of why the human misery never stops; too comfortable; too compliant; too acquiescent – too selfish – to shoulder the burden of the evil we all agreed to by our superior-State-servitude inaction?
“The most powerful form of lie is the omission” – George Orwell 1903-1950
People will say they simply didn’t know and they’ll shirk any responsibility. But no-one of any good-conscience should need the TV ‘news’ to cyclically-repeat to them what is ‘truth’ and what isn’t. Not in the age of the internet. There’s no excuse anymore.
If we make it through the first two decades of the 21st Century, it’ll record a time when ignorance truly became an uninformed choice; because truth came a poor second to nostalgic-patriotic, emotionally-empowering TV-truth-by-propaganda-proxy; ‘news‘ and ‘entertainment‘.
Many of those that refuse to see outside of a TV screen or a xenophobic misogynist newspaper for their ‘truth’, aren’t remotely interested in truth; they’re Palindrome Parrots merely echoing the State broadcast conditioning, preening themselves in the prejudiced reflection of their caged mirror; they don’t care what’s truth – they’ve already ‘chosen’.
This is why TV-charity contagion – the Remembrance Poppy included – has been weaponised as a key-component of a wider military recruitment campaign because we’ve become swept up in the emotional-maelstrom that allows us to feel a part of the superior-State in our servitude and which with it, brings an altogether sinister meaning to ‘Poppy Fascism’.
And this is what makes ‘TV charity’ the untouchable, social-conformity herd, State-gaslight weapon of choice upon which, the elites are building their new war-machine by tapping into the genuine altruistic nature of good, decent people who will themselves, despite the evidence – permit themselves to stay in the pyrrhic-safety of the herd, rewriting the reality happening in front of them.
They will howl derision at anyone outside the innate herd, yet every year love the British ‘Corpolitique’s patriotic currency’ because they allow us to demonstrate how brilliantly British we all are by text-donation denominations of £10’s and £20’s, pitching-in to their own downfall on the human misery-go-round.
They permit us to forever-never repair the damage caused by their Military Intelligence Media misdirection; love-bombs for the UK public laden with poverty, hunger and homelessness at home and for abroad; directed live-bombs laden with UK State High Explosives that result in murdered children, broken men and women; innocent civilians and British soldiers and their families, left to pick up the pieces of their lost limbs and minds.
Winston “You did it. You reduced me to this”
O’Brien “No Winston. You reduced yourself to this”
from George Orwell’s ‘1984’
You’ll need to forgive me for refusing to let you continue overlook the innocents murdered by the British State at home; the ones who had the misfortune to be deemed ‘substandard‘ human beings in the eyes of the UK media and who’ve invisibly stressed, starved and been silenced to death by eugenics design, by benefit sanction; with death-sentences imposed via joint-venture, by decree of the UK State and corporate-partner sponsored euthanasia of the 21st Century UK domestic ‘Untermensch’; the disabled.
You’ll need to forgive me for refusing to let you continue overlook innocents murdered by the British State abroad; the ones who had the misfortune to be deemed ‘substandard‘ human beings in the eyes of the UK media and who’ve been invisibly strafed, starved and silenced to death by fascist design, by bomb and bullet; with death-sentences imposed via joint-venture, by decree of the UK State and corporate-partner military-ordinance euthanasia of the 21st Century foreign ‘Untermensch’; innocent Muslims.
Because it seems to me, as an ex-British soldier but also a humanitarian, trying to get through to ‘decent patriots’ by citing the plight of innocents murdered by the British State, simply doesn’t work – because by deliberate media omission, there doesn’t appear to be any emotional connection for their human rights, for what has been done to these groups in democracy’s name – in our name.
Austerity – Financial Apartheid Propaganda
“The most effective way to destroy a people, is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history” – George Orwell 1903-1950
Many opponents of austerity claim it’s failed but it’s just a matter of perspective; if you look at it as the ‘legitimising’ propaganda for economic-opportunity apartheid, designed to steal the futures of we acquiescent masses in preparation to steer the young – principally boys – towards the service of the State and for a post-Brexit, American-style privatised-profit #PrisonMilitaryIndustrialComplex estate – well then, it’s worked an absolute treat.
‘Legitimising’ words like ‘austerity’ – do indeed “build bridges into unexplored regions”,just as the word ‘offshore’ builds bridges into tax havens but we’ve become numbed to accept and trust the status quo, to our own individual, group and community detrimental needs, we ‘proudly’ become compelled to do the work of the State – of the elites – whom we incentivise – in one of the richest economies in the world much of which is funnelled to British Overseas Territories tax-havens.
We’ve actually become morally and financially accustomed to proudly take up the responsibility slack, for everything the elite deprive us of; from funding food banks to filling and manning their intrinsically interwoven trenches for oil-wars.
Man-made financial catastrophes – whether via the Versailles Treaty or the ‘timely’ US global-bank crash and 1930’s Depression are directly linked to the human-existential toxic-corruption we know as war.
The most recent global bank crash was of course in 2008 leading to ‘austerity’ for which many in UK have unnecessarily suffered, especially the disabled and those with mental-health issues.
But the real targets in 2008 weren’t those who have suffered – and have died by UK State-sponsored euthanasia – to date; the real targets were the preadolescents and maturing adolescents boys of the day, who are now teenagers and young adults; young men of fighting age – whose financial, economic-opportunities have been smothered in the cradle but for whom now, deprivation is ‘normal’ as the ‘love’ of a narcissistic parent…
…And so they are far more susceptible now, to seeking their meaning and purpose in something; anything – even dishing out death; ‘legitimised’, organised murder on behalf of democratically elected ‘Government’.
And that is why against the backdrop of an official MoD recruitment drive, and the part-privatised, wholly weaponised WWI Commemorations which have become merged with WWII propaganda remakes and reinventions steeped in stoical, militarised victimhood, there is also a wholesale-State subliminal psychological and physiological ‘push and pull’ military-channelling recruitment campaign.
This epoch of British patriotism that we are now enveloped within is no accident. It has also coincided over the last couple of years with the online ‘Poppy Police’ whom I suspect might have something to do with 77th Brigade – the former 15 (UK) PSYOPS Gp Military Intelligence unit, trained by and the joint brainchild of the same online ‘human behavioural specialists’ Cambridge Analytica, that were behind the Brexit vote; with high-tech voter targeted algorithms and a tsunami of low-tech crap actor Fakebook pages who’s work is to inject emotions – any emotions – as an extension of your TV-media, just so long as they too play a role in sealing the population with the subliminal Dark Triad Agenda’s mass cognitive-dissonance and depression effect, set against an invisible-backdrop hum of feel-good nostalgia; all ultimately – to keep us from engaging logical thought processes.
Which is also why Brexit vote just so happened to be timed to be smack-bang in the middle of the WWI ‘Commemorations’ which themselves has mission-creeped to coincide with a tsunami-Hollywood wave of nostalgic British cult-classic film remakes and jingoistic-Churchillian WWII wartime propaganda reinventions…
…Just as a Hollywood-Westminster misogynist sex-pest scandal is exposed by the media – which has been endemic since forever in these unchecked institutions and was reported to Theresa May in 2015 and before that in 2014 when she was Home Secretary but did nothing about it because timing is everything; which is why she had been busying herself destroying the police in England and Wales in order to provide the ‘Corpolitique’ pretext – as Prime Minister to drip-feed deploy British soldiers onto the streets post-Brexit. That’s the entire point of Brexit.
And that’s the whole point of the ‘Military Intelligence Media’ narrative; the usual suspects are both direct and subliminal about what might occur should hard Brexit not be delivered, but listen to the generic hum – particularly by those commentators who have their own shows across all channels – who claim to be objective or even of having been against leaving the EU; but still subliminally insert the pro-Brexit exit message – in the name of the British people…
Back To The Future
“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance”. – George Orwell 1903-1950
And that’s why it’s a ‘substantial’ war that is needed by the elites not only to secure global resources but to ideologically redefine their relationship with the domestic masses, by pressing a societal ‘reset button’ that lowers our expectations in life yet reinforces our subservient, militarised-deferential view of them as they realign and reinforce State ‘historical’ indoctrination for the next generation.
Such as they did for the Baby Boomers and GenX (the parents of teenagers of a 1980’s inter-generational ‘crossover’ decade) by omitting the Imperial oil-glutton causes of The Great War and conditioning them to define themselves and invest their ‘heroic-stoic script’ identity housed in WWII – largely through film propaganda – in order to see but most importantly – feel – who they are in the eyes of each other and the world.
Which is precisely why we’re being subliminally bombarded with concentrations of WWII film-remake reinventions against a wider backdrop of 1980’s nostalgia-invoking references via multi-media type platforms, stage-supported either side by the ‘70’s and 90’s – to induce a mass hypnotic-psychosis feel-good factor of ‘better British times’.
All mass-psychosis trance to distract us from what they’re in the process of doing.
But we only have to look at prime-time TV ‘perfect-community’ propaganda programming for ‘Huxley’s Heroes’ on the BBC and corporate commercial ads – especially ads by the banks – to subliminally absorb the life they want us to believe is around the corner.
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting”. Sun Tzu
But it’s all just the emotionalised illusion of the very single-most thing they’re in the process of stealing from every single one of us; our dignity – which we casually trade-off for temporary bouts of hyper-emotionalised, destructively empty-empowerment but which results in a lasting gaslight-psychosis paradox; to deliver a #PatrioticPoverty population who love their morally-just, generous servitude.
In the mainstream media and social-media, there are a number of quite deliberate ‘Trojan Champions’ whose raison-detre is public-emotionalising misdirection. I’d like to think that the British Armed Forces have inadvertently fallen-foul of mission-creep which has seen the most powerful, yet humbling symbol of reflective poppy Remembrance become tarnished by emotionalised patriotism.
Few initiatives have been more effective achieving this, perhaps inadvertently, than emotionalised, hedge-fund business sponsor behind the Weaponised Waterfalls. But then we are dealing with the Whitehall MoD.
These highly publicised, media-amplified initiatives to help ex-soldiers are doing anything but. They have patriotically-penetrated into the very psyche of a grateful and proud general public – #MeToo – to purchase a piece of publicly-displayable gratitude but which simultaneously has unsuspectingly, been bathed in recurrent-cyclical, concentric-layers of ‘parental-political’ domestic-abuse.
We’ve arrived at a crossroads.
A junction in the perpetuation of a now Poppy-driven military-political weapon to abuse the goodwill of the masses, many of whom from the pre-match terraces have their whole lives played their solemn walk on part in the war with the Last Post and a minute silence. How many more wars?
How many more lives on the battlefield and on the terraces must we do this?
Many, many more it seems.
Because the previously understated sombre sorrow spectacle has been usurped. Collective groups of individuals coming together in respectful reflect has become imperceptibly infiltrated – perhaps indefinitely – by a media driven glorification-demonstration of national pride. We live in dangerous times.
In the end – and there will be an end – by feeding their habit in the form of ‘Our Boys’ as soldiers, they’ll take us down with them like a panic-stricken person drowning.
Only with the parents being so powerfully-addicted narcissists, they’ll save a last breath for themselves just to stay afloat whilst they watch us – the children – drown before they do…
…Then and only then, might that be enough for them.
But we’re already drowning; in a media-led manipulated post-Brexit British patriotism that has been extended from the pre-planned food produce propaganda, on stealth-serendipitous supermarket isles to the British Isles EU negotiation strategy…
But because the British establishment elite provides the population with their tragedy-charity gaslight gift that keeps on giving; a cyclical, emotional and therefore irrationalised mass-consent to perpetuate human misery in the form of poverty, homelessness, prison and war, it results in the profiteering ‘spoils’ of war for the elite and in the cold hard corpses of the working classes. And we love them for it.
Live. Die. Repeat.
“He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother” – George Orwell ‘1984’
We need to break the gaslight-cycle of our own human-misery driven self-destruction; acquiescent societal suicide – by manipulated militarised pride.
