Approaching the trolley stand at Tesco these days is something not dissimilar to a theatrical recreation of Ken Kesey’s ‘One Flu Over the Cuckoo’s nest’.
As I edged closer towards the trolley stand it became clear, I was going to have to either wait for the eager patrons to sanitize themselves and their trolley of choice, or alternatively perform a cunning socially distanced dance through the growing group of crazed masked creatures, towards a trolley.
I go for the latter option, carefully weaving between the chaos, then with a surprising elegance I grasp a trolley and begin my retreat towards the supermarket entrance.
“Can you please put your mask on, sir?” came the voice.
Looking up, a double-masked gentleman dressed in a high-visibility jacket, and armed with a spray bottle in one hand glares at me.
“I do not have a mask”, I respond.
“You don’t have to wear one?” he inquires.
“Of course I don’t, why would I need to wear a mask?”
The armed gentleman stutters a little and his trigger finger on the spray bottle seems to grip just a little tighter, “y, y, you are exempt?”.
“Exempt from what exactly?” I say as I cautiously escape range of his sanitizing spray bottle and maneuver myself and trolley into the supermarket.
If there was an answer to this, I did not hear it. I made it in, but my mission was far from complete.
As Tracy Chapman’s ‘Talking about a Revolution’ plays in the background I begin to go through my shopping list.
As I approach the vegetable aisle, I see a commotion breaking out. A short, stout woman in a high-visibility jacket and dark green military looking face mask is telling a couple that one of them must leave the supermarket.
“We are trying to ensure maximum social distancing is possible and therefore must ask one of you to leave” she says. The couple looked like two masked-rabbits caught in the headlights.
After a quick nervous discussion about who should stay and who should retreat back to the carpark, the man of the couple leaves, head down and ashamed. The remaining woman from the once criminal duo speaks up.
“But there are other couples here, why us?” she says.
“We will get to ‘the others’ in due course” the little masked troll assures the woman.
I slip my way between the troll and the remaining criminal to get some more lifeless and equally tasteless tomatoes. They both spot me and step back so to ensure social distancing measures are applied while their eyes never leaving my unmasked face. A look of shear fear and disgust is obvious in both the store troll and the remaining member of the criminal duo.
“Evening Ladies” I say with a smile and head off to continue my journey through the twilight zone.
The ever repeating announcement breaks in over the loudspeaker, cutting out what seems like another taunting classic ‘I want to break Free’ by Queen.
“Here at Tesco we are doing everything we can to ensure our customers and staff remain safe at all times. Please, can we remind you to follow the social distancing guidelines and where a mask, unless you are exempt. Thank you and stay safe”
The music fades back in as Freddie finishes off “…. I want, I want, I want to break
I complete the rest of my shopping and navigate my way to the self-serve.
At the checkout cubicle next to me is a father with his two young children. The little girl was staring at me in absolute wonder through the two layers of perspex that separated us. After a couple minutes she says to her dad, “Daddy, I can see that mans face…..”, she hesitated, “…all of it”.
Her eyes at this point still have not left my face, her father looks down at her and follows her gaze. He ignores his daughters’ acknowledgement and seems to pick up pace.
I make my way back to the car, take the trolley back to the stand where the trolley cleaning chaos continues on, jump in my car and head off back home.
Apologies for the above recount of just a normal day for me in this brave new world we find ourselves in. The saddest part is, it was as I said ‘a normal day for me’.
Is this the ‘New Normal’ we kept hearing about early on in this so-called pandemic?
The truth is, and it is a truth few like to hear, is that this strange new World we find ourselves living is the fault of the majority, the herd so to speak.
It could all be over in a second, if the majority simply disobeyed and began living freely again, but they will not.
We reached ‘Herd Stupidity’ long ago, decades ago in fact. But we are only really seeing the devastation it has on society now.
While ultimately blame has to be placed at the feet of those in the ‘herd’, there is some valid defense for them.
From the moment we are born, our environment prepares us for society. Everything from the baby books and toys available, the television programming to the state education system. All of it is designed to program us into obedient slaves to the system, or as some would rather state, ‘to prepare us for society’. In reality, both statements equate to the same thing.
“Factory schools,” originated in early 19th-century Prussia. For the first time in history, education was provided by the state and learning was regimented.
Students would be grouped into ages, split into sub-groups of 20 or so students, given a master/teacher and then trained to a curriculum. As students progressed in their achievement level they would be rewarded by going to the next level, the next grade.
The system was designed to be impersonal, efficient and standardized.
As Northwestern University economist Joel Mokyr explains:
‘Much of this education, however, was not technical in nature but social and moral. Workers who had always spent their working days in a domestic setting, had to be taught to follow orders, to respect the space and property rights of others, be punctual, docile, and sober.
The early industrial capitalists spent a great deal of effort and time in the social conditioning of their labor force, especially in Sunday schools which were designed to inculcate middle class values and attitudes, so as to make the workers more susceptible to the incentives that the factory needed.’ – Semanticscholar.org
The education system we have to today is just an expansion of this same system. The factory work training has just been expanded to include training for other requirements of society. But the underlying social and moral indoctrination is the same as it was 200 years ago when the system was created.
In order to be a useful cog in the machine, you must be obedient and conform to the majority. That is it.
But possibly an even greater tool for programming new innocent and inquisitive life into obedient members of the state governed society, is television and mass media.
The relationship between the state and media is a long one, in fact the two have been entwined since the creation of Johann Gutenberg’s printing press in the early 1400s, which was at a time when Church and State were equally entwined.
During the Reformation, the Catholics and Protestants used the printing press to produce propaganda in an attempt to brainwash the public against their opposition:
The propaganda that came from the Protestants and the Catholics contained very similar themes. Both were highly concerned with discrediting the other side.
Propaganda that came from Lutherans had four primary themes: anti-popery, social morality, individual salvation, and Scriptural stories.
The Catholics focused on anti-Lutherism, the veneration of the saints, morality, and Scriptural stories – people.vcu.edu
The English Civil War saw the first war of propaganda in the country’s history.
Between 1640 and 1660 more than 30,000 publications were printed in London alone.
Many of these were written in plain English for the first time and were sold on the streets for as little as a penny making them available to the common people – it was political and religious propaganda on a grand scale. – historyhit.com 
But it isn’t just wartime where propaganda is used, it is a part of our every day lives, from our twenty-four-seven daily news reporting being pumped out from every radio, television and mobile phone to our children’s academic literature.
Every aspect of our informational input has been co-opted.
I’m sure you have all heard of Operation Mockingbird? Well, if you haven’t, look it up. Operation Mockingbird was a large-scale program created by the CIA that began in the early years of the Cold War in an attempt to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes.
In a nutshell:
It was an alleged large-scale project undertaken by the CIA beginning in the 1950s in which they recruited American journalists into a propaganda network. The recruited journalists were put on a payroll by the CIA and instructed to write fake stories that promoted the views of the intelligence agency. Student cultural organizations and magazines were allegedly funded as fronts for this operation. – Allthatsinteresting.com
This topic is huge and so I will leave it there – but you get the general idea.
The Cult of Statism
All of these entities waiting in the shadows to steal your mind rely on one underlying foundational factor in their victims to remain valid, statism.
Without this irrational belief in the state and the democratic system it represents, it is far harder to enslave an individual to your desire. This is why the theatre of politics plays such an important part in the propaganda instruments I discussed above.
The democratic state promises a greater freedom to its people than if there was no democratic state at all. But this promise is an empty promise maintained by false comparisons to a fictional history fabricated by the state itself.
The democratic state uses the Hegelian dialectic to ensure absolute control.
The Hegelian dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution. The philosophy of the Hegelian Dialectic is again, a massive topic for discussion, but to simplify:
A (thesis) versus B (anti-thesis) equals C (synthesis)
So if (A) my idea of freedom conflicts with (B) your idea of freedom, then (C) neither of us can be free until everyone agrees to be a slave.
If you then just add one more factor to this, an agenda you basically have Problem, Reaction, Solution:
All of this exists in plain sight, and yet few see it. They do not see it for the same reason Susan Atkins could not see Charles Manson’s evil. Cult followers are blind, they are immune from the truth. This state of a cult follower is no accident, it is the intended condition of all subjects within a cult. Cult leaders are psychological masters of the human mind, Charles Manson was a genius in this respect – but it should come as no surprise that Manson was friends with a Doctor who was involved in the CIA’s MK Ultra experiments.
Did Manson acquire his unique brainwashing capabilities from the CIA?
Well, once again – a huge topic for discussion; but if you are interested in this topic I highly recommend Tom O’Neill’s excellent book ‘Chaos: Charles Manson, the Cia, and the Secret History of the Sixties’.
A member of the Cult of Statism will defend the democratic state to which they serve to their last dying breath.
And so here we are, locked up, masked up, sanitized and ready for an experimental vaccine with no long-term safety trials to be injected into our bloodstreams.
People are even fighting over who should get this experimental vaccine first!
Clinically vulnerable. It is all done on priority lists via the GPs. Maybe stop a minute before assuming we are all q jumping twats? Have a great evening!— Miranda Green (@greenmiranda) February 5, 2021
People are entirely blind to the fact that since the vaccine was introduced into care homes, we have seen an explosion in ‘COVID-19’ outbreaks and deaths in care homes.
You can read more about this ‘coincidental’ increase in COVID deaths within care homes since the first vaccine was delivered in an earlier article HERE
Our right to speak freely is being systematically destroyed, and people are cheering it along as if it isn’t the biggest indicator of a tyrannical regime unfolding.
The level of ignorance and stupidity is absurd at this point. No, not even three god damn masks will help you avoid infection, but it does at least make a public display of one’s IQ level. I’ve exhausted the topic of masks so many times, but just for fun there is this:
Sanitizing yourself and everything in your environment won’t save you either, it might kill you quicker though.
Experiments throughout the early 20th century revealed that Animals which were kept in a completely germ-free environment; with even their births performed by Cesarean in a sterile environment and fed sterile food and water, died within just a few days.
This growing ‘Herd Stupidity’ is the greatest danger we currently face as a society. It really does not matter what our Governments attempt to enforce, it only becomes an issue when people in large numbers blindly obey.
Everything about this pandemic has been a lie, from the outset we have been deceived at every level. We have been continually told what we can, and cannot do. Meanwhile, those telling us what we can and cannot do have continually broken their own rules.
The data has been presented to the public to suit their narrative from day one, relying on the fact that few will check the source data in its greater context.
Where does it end I ask?
Will people continue to take this journey towards total dystopian tyranny without a fight?
What happened to critical thinking? What happened to the hero’s? What happened to bravery? What happened to freedom?
Please, as always leave your comments below.
The Western economy = Skint. This convoluted ‘Simon says’ disruption, is meant to confuse the docile herd. Fear is easily promoted among the ignorant. The vaccine is a money spinner. Who earns the money? Who owns the companies? Where are they based? The virus itself has been made a convenient scapegoat, and been blamed for the latest economic woes. Despite a major crash being forecast by most sensible economists long before these events transpired. Since when does a virus that has had no communication with a human host been able to infect humans? I read parasite rex. That is not… Read more »
I think I would agree aout that. It took just one old nasty to stand up and say “Your Country Needs You” to send some e or 4 or more million young men to be slaughtered in 1914 and millions more have died on battlefields arranged by evil manipulators who know exactly how to control a herd of sheeple. Until we all learn how to stand on our own feet as individuals this will continue to happen.
Gosh! 🙂 you made me laugh, but yes it’s a sad tale of the ongoing abuse of power. Fear coupled with ignorance sure is a recipe for disaster. Time to make T-shirts that plant seeds to help with the awakening from this dream spell.
The one crititism I have is that you did your own check out in the supermarket, thus helping to put people out of work and helping to create an even more impersonal society. In the end when there are no people at the tills you will be doing all the work for the same price for goods and the queues will be just as long.
Supermarkets like Tesco will do away with customers, regardless. I’d say the biggest criticism people should make is that I shop at Tesco’s at all. However, there is a reason why I do. The local shops won’t even let me through the door.
But I agree. Yes, we should support workers rather than machines.
