As revelations of dishonesty, manipulation and all sorts of jiggery pokery by politicians and civil servants to scare the public into complying with lockdowns, mask mandates and social distancing during the Project Fear campaign that powered the hoax pandemic have unfolded day by day in The Telegraph it seems the world (or that portion of it that posts article and comments on alt_news websites has split into two camps.
There are those denying the notion that the whole exercise was a power grab by a shady global elite intent on establishing a world government and saying that the lock-step implementation of lockdowns in all countries was an accident and a “fruit of shallow low-wattage government functionaries who have a planning horizon extending no more than two weeks," according to Eugyppius”
Then there is the camp (typified by Igor Chudov HERE) that maintains the events of 2020 were planned and implemented in advance by Creepy, Conspiratorial, Covidian Globalists, who implemented their plans via corrupt media that they control financially, by social media giants suppressing discussions, dissent and open dialogue and hijacked science and pandemic modeling to further their plans. They also effectively controlled the shallow, low - wattage government functionaries.”
The people who would seek to alter our world, dominate it and rebuild it in the image of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World or the Chinese Communist Party's 'Peoples Republic' and who woulf take away our freedoms while quietly killing us off, are dull. They are boring and there is something inherently evil about dull and boring because it is, in effect, anti-life. As G K Chesterton wrote of our former leaders in his poem The Secret People:
They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs.
Our New Unhappy Lords may do a good job at acting, acting like real people but if Gates, Schwab, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Sunak, Trudeau, Macron, Buffett, Zelensky, Biden,
Rothschild (take your pick), or any of the others too numerous to
mention were to come into the house for a drink and a convivial chat, conversation would be incredibly
stilted and lifeless because these people wouldn’t be able to relate
like real humans.
Do they have compassion and feelings? Well, they almost all have children but that doesn’t really mean anything. Didn’t I read that Schwab’s children are all involved in Daddy’s Naughty Plans?
These people are dull and unimaginative and have no ability to envision a world where technology, which after all is useful, is used for purposes that enhance human life and ALL other life lest we forget that this planet is not ours for the taking no matter what either the Bible or Karl Marx says. Instead they imagine a world of unimaginable wealth and privilege for the few and dehumanizing, soul destroying servitude for the many, a world where free human spirits are controlled by machines with Artificial Intelligence.
Arrogance and a lack of all the qualities that define us as human will scupper their plans eventually, I am certain. However we need
to make sure for ourselves that WE don’t become reliant on the
technology either. Be human, celebrate your humanity. If you read classic literature and listen to music from
before, say, 2000 (the 1960s and 70 was my era,) there is an authenticity to the
sounds and the messages, melodies had the power to evoke emotions, lyrics provoked thought, some books, the great ones, had the power to change out world view.
Listen to musival originality The Beatles ‘Sergeant Pepper’ album, or the songs on Carol King's 'Tapestry,' just two of the hundreds of great albums from the past that spring readily to mind, everybody of a certain age has their own favourites of course. These are virtuoso performances, music full of feeling and movement in the heart. They are full of humanity.
A few weeks ago in conversation with my granddaughter about music I invited her to make a comparison:
(Nikki Minaj, 2011)
I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
(Judy Collins, 1967)
She had to agree the Judy Collins song had more meaning and a better melody. The song writers and music makers of the past were people for whom the music was the main preoccupation not image or fame or getting a few thousand more followers on Social Media. The same is true of film, books and even TV dramas, talk shows, documentaries, comedies etc and you get a real sense of the thing that we seem to have lost – creativity, authenticity and the joy of creating.
The devices we all carry and this obsession with celebrity have indeed made us dull beyond reckoning – selfies on Facebook and bright white shining teeth as if that is the apogee of our ambitions. Look at modern houses, modern cars, supermarkets, politics, megalomaniacs…all dull, dull, dull. All anti-life and the joy and pain and fullness of life.
It may be nostalgic to think of such things and to even hope of a return to a simpler, more connected way of being but to me it is important to be aware of how we as a human race, especially in the so called advanced nations are being somehow changed and altered to become a bland, beige, conformist civilisation and not the one that created fabulous music, literature and art.
