Well, this week I scored 6/10, the same as political journalist John Rentoul. I did not know the answers to questions 3, 6, 8, and 9.
I once lived in a house from where parts of both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor could be seen. In the cooler months, a wild part of the country.
Nick Griffin, Mark Collett, and Patriotic Alternative
I have never met either of the above individuals. Moreover, I do not “support” either, as such, and I do not oppose either, as such. Nick Griffin did well to turn the BNP into a machine capable of at least winning a few EU and local election seats prior to 2010. As for Mark Collett, I like what little I see online about Patriotic Alternative, inasmuch as they are at least doing things on the ground, even if those activities are only going on hikes and putting up banners at various places.
It is hard for an outsider like me to come to any firm view as to whether one or the other is more or less worthy or meritorious. I cannot think that either of those sides or groups is “what Britain needs”, as such, but “all roads lead to Rome” is, I suppose, my basic attitude.
It will take more than opposition to the “panicdemic” to make me like Alex Jones, but his main point is worthwhile.
Interesting to note that Jones’s type of free speech would not be permitted in the UK: OFCOM would “unperson” him at once. In fact, Jones would probably end up getting prosecuted on some bs Mickey Mouse charge or other.
The word “elected” should also have been in quotation marks. The whole system is rigged.
The latest msm “celebrity” puppet of NWO/ZOG, following in the footsteps of so many others, from Michael Jackson to Elton John.
People generally tend to think of Sovietism as having come into being purely under conditions of political violence. Much of its consolidation in the early years, however, took place under what were basically conditions of near-chaos. Rudolf Steiner referred, in 1918 or 1919, to the “impossible social conditions” in Russia (it did not become the Soviet Union until 1923 —officially, 22 December 1922—; the 33-year cycle of world politics and society, again).
What conditions were “impossible?” Shortages caused by official policy, weird laws, “rules”, “advice” etc. People getting sacked, quarantined, arrested for crazy small things, or because their faces did not fit in the New Order, or because they were “former people” who remembered that things had once been mainly better. Also, gradually more severe restrictions on movement, particularly travel outside the country.
Does any of this seem familiar? Yes, the old “socialism”, Marxism-Leninism, even social democracy, started to disappear rather fast after 1989 (again, that 33-year cycle), but the essentials are there, meaning especially the lunacy that becomes dogma, with harsh enforcement of crazy “rules”, supposed “laws” etc. Look at what has happened in the UK and in many other countries in 2020-2021.
The facemask nonsense, the arbitrary “rule of six”, “2 metres social distancing”, the absurd enforcement of those and other crazy “rules” and the “advice” (whims) of idiotic ministers etc, enforced by dim and/or brainwashed police. Arrests of people doing perfectly ordinary things such as walking in the country, sitting on park benches, sunbathing on beaches, going for a recreational car or bike ride outside the local area. Oh, and don’t forget the socially-mandated “clapathon”, idiots clapping on command outside their houses, notionally “for the NHS”, which NHS was pared back to a kind of skeleton service in reality.
All underpinned by a huge propaganda “fear campaign” in the msm.
It is hard to people now to understand how the Russian Revolution gradually became a total police state. Why did more people not resist? Why did many people comply, and even support the embedded nonsense? These things are not easy to spot whe they are happening. Look around you.
I am not just talking about the “Covid-19” situation. The pushing of the “Black LIves Matter” nonsense too: every ad with blacks in it, or with the multikulti “family” (often a white woman, often blonde, and a black man as husband figure). The same in dramas, “soaps” etc. Even historical dramas, like the recent one showing Ann Boleyn as a black woman!
None of this is a kind of “accident”. People, and not only in the UK, are being played like balalaikas, and most have no idea about it.
…and not the migration-invasion, of course…
The “Lucky Country” is now a multikulti, and nightmarish, police state. Dystopian.
Australians must know where the centres of evil are: Canberra. State capitals. TV studios. Radio stations.
In decades past, French youth would have resisted more, would have done something to the robocops, not just filmed them for Twitter etc.
“Ms Rimington would secretly report him to the Government’s anti-terrorism programme, Prevent, after he delivered a sermon that, he says, moderately and carefully presented the Christian viewpoint on identity questions.
‘I was terrified when I found out,’ recalls Dr Randall. ‘I had visions of being investigated by MI5, of men coming to my house at dawn and knocking down the front door. What was I supposed to tell my family? It was crazy.” [Daily Mail]
“Despite previous assurances, he says that he was told that he had not been included in discussions ‘because he might disagree with [the propaganda line pursued] ’.” [Daily Mail]
The UK, a country in which, in recent years, a barrister (me) can be disbarred for tweeting five completely true and accurate tweets about society generally (see https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/); a country in which an ex-soldier with an exemplary record in Afghanistan and elsewhere (Jeremy ‘Jez’ Bedford-Turner) can be imprisoned because he had the temerity to suggest that Jews be expelled from the UK in a humorous speech; a country in which a professional singer and entertainer (Alison Chabloz) can lose her job because a few malicious Jews targeted her employer, and later find herself actually imprisoned for posting a satirical song or two on the Internet!
You can see the way the UK is going. It is not going that way by accident…
If the world suffers great calamities soon, it may be necessary to institute a “revaluation of all values” in rebuilding it.
The old institutions have become corrupted empty shells which are filling with Evil. They may have to be eliminated.
Please refer to my last comment, above…
Note Hitchens’ timescale. 1989…the last pivotal year; the previous one was 1956, the one before that, 1923. The next pivotal year will be 2022, and the international conspiracy/consensus is trying to seize it, and with it the agenda for the 33 years starting then. Inter alia, the “Great Reset”, and with it, “the Great Replacement” of people in Europe and elsewhere.
These people should be on our side!
There is no point in refighting the war of 1939-45 (on the Eastern Front, mainly 1941-45). The Reich has passed into history, but so has the Soviet Union, and indeed Sovietism itself. We are where we are. Let’s build a new world together!
…and about 95% of students at Oxford and Cambridge now get either “Firsts” or “2:1” degrees. A First was once a coveted rarity. Now? Bog-standard, really. The holders of such degrees may consider themselves highly-educated, but most are not.
As we move towards the very significant year 2022, it can be seen that the groups, cabals or “ruling circles” of the West are gearing up.
The whole “virus” and vaccines narrative has become almost hysterical. Yes, a million people have died “with” this virus (most of whom would have died anyway at or near the same time, from other conditions they had), but that is out of eight thousand million (i.e. 8 billion) human beings on the Earth. One in every eight thousand.
I do not say that “the virus” does not exist. Of course it does. Something like 50,000 have died with it in the UK, out of about 70 million inhabitants (about one death for every 1,400 people in the UK). It is a serious public health problem, but is hardly the Plague or the Black Death.
In much of the UK, the population has been basically unaffected. Anecdotally, I personally do not know a single person who has had “the virus”, let alone died from it. Indeed, as far as I know, I do not know anyone who knows anyone who has had it, even asymptomatically.
It is clear that the virus has been weaponized, across the “West” especially, meaning Europe, North America, Australasia, to corral the population into both obedience to State orders and into being injected with the vaccine(s). The fact that there is already mooted the strong possibility of compulsion or “nudge” semi-compulsion is deeply suspicious.
Leaving aside “the virus” question, we see that the System is also behind the ludicrous “Black Lives Matter” campaign. That too is tied up with large-scale movements, behind which are those same groups or “ruling circles”. The “Great Replacement” of white Europeans both in Europe and across the world. White Genocide.
The “useful idiots” here are of course the “blacks and browns” and other non-whites, as well as the pathetic”antifa” and “anti-racist” types, all used by the System as a battering ram. The blacks think that they are about to take over, whereas they are just being used by transnational tyrants as a catspaw.
“The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making…As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies...” [World Economic Forum].
There it is. The “ruling circles” think that “the virus” (the true origins of which are unknown) creates a wonderful opportunity to reshape the world the way they want.
The last year in that 33-year cycle was 1989. If one had to pinpoint a year in which “socialism” in various forms died, it would be 1989. After 1989, “socialism” of the old sort lost whatever credibility remained to it.
In the 1980s, in the Soviet Union, the CPSU (Communist Party) was on its last legs, legs of straw. “Perestroika” (a mere word or slogan proclaiming “rebuilding” but in fact meaning demolition of a socialist command economy) was the cry; in fact the legs of that old command economy were being cut off.
Within a few years after 1989, a pack of Jews had descended on Russia (and the other republics) and were carpetbagging on an unprecedented scale, buying whole huge industrial sectors for peanuts. Even before 1989, a few pioneer Western corporate lawyers were going to Moscow. The first one resident there was a Jew or part-Jew, UK based and whom I myself later met on a few occasions both in London and overseas.
I recall when Gorbachev, not yet officially the leader, came to London in 1984. The red carpet was quite literally rolled out for him, for example, by large Western enterprises. I saw one such carpet being laid down a day or so before his arrival (it was not shown on the TV news until he had actually been to the place, the HQ of one of the largest UK engineering companies): http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/december/16/newsid_2560000/2560125.stm
In other words, the “Wise Men of the West” were well aware that socialism, as such, had had its day, the socialism which their own predecessors had “injected”, via Lenin (part-Jew) and Trotsky (full Jew), into Russia.
Those Western “ruling circles” and cabals were preparing for the post-1989, post-socialist world already in 1984, and no doubt long before then.
One example: the American Jew economist, Sachs, first advised the Polish Government in 1989, then moved on to the Soviet Union a couple of years later, as it died, promoting a “capitalism in 100 days” concept. This was partly carried out under Yeltsin and his clique. Millions died (quietly…most were pensioners) of malnutrition and whatever else as the economy tanked. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Sachs#Advising_in_post-communist_economies
Across Western and Central Europe, parties formerly at least notionally “social-democratic” if not “socialist” either fell or became finance-capitalist in all but label or presentation. In the UK, the Labour Party abandoned its commitment to a form of socialism by 1995 (though substituting a form of meaningless “communitarian” words): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clause_IV. There was never a serious attempt to revive Clause 4, even under Corbyn.
The overall point that I am making is that 1989 was the pivotal year, though significant events happened both before and after that year. The death of socialism.
Other manifestations included the fall of the Berlin Wall (also 1989) and with it the DDR system of not only government but also society. As in most of Eastern and Central Europe, the DDR socialist regime simply gave up.
Yes, there are a few “socialist” states still around: Cuba, North Korea etc. They have as little significance as the surviving hunter-gatherer tribes of the Arctic, Australia or Latin America.
Since 1989, the prevailing ideology worldwide has been finance-capitalism, but a finance-capitalism permeated by globalism.
The next world-historic year will be 2022. We can see the Western cabals preparing for it: the removal of free expression or free speech, especially online (which has developed entirely since 1989), the fake communitarianism, the push to (start to) eliminate the white European peoples completely, by race-mixing, by intimidation, but mostly by propaganda and brainwashing, starting at the school and even pre-school level; the normalization of mixed-race couples and mixed-race offspring etc.
The NWO cabals thought that their work would be more successful than it has been. The 1989-2022 plan was partly derailed by at least two major trends; the first was the unexpected revival of Russian national spirit, meaning patriotism, culture, political will under Putin (for all his flaws), and military might (which is still growing).
The second impediment to the New World Order [NWO] in the 1989-2022 period was the upsurge in Arab/Muslim military and paramilitary activity, from the more terroristic in the West to the outright war of the “ISIS” barbarians in the Middle East.
Those two factors slowed the progress of the NWO. We see now, as 2022 approaches, that both are blocked or weakened: Russia weakened by economic sanctions, and the various forms of Arab/Muslim upsurge or resistance running out of steam, or crumbling. For example, the Gulf states, I think Jordan too, either have or will soon have given official recognition to the Israeli state. That may only have formalized previous unofficial ties, but the timing is significant.
The previous years in the cycle have all been very important: 1989, 1956, 1923, for example.
The necessity now is for Europe itself to recover its racial and cultural memory.
In the UK too. People are being softened up for huge standard-of-living falls, under cover of “the virus”, when 90% of the problem has been caused by the Government measures. Hundreds of billions are being thrown away by Rishi Sunak and Boris-idiot, yet already we see one billion shaven off the railways support.
It’s all connected with “The Great Reset” etc.
Good point. If Corbyn was no good electorally, was Miliband better? Brown?
Rachel Reeves, 2010-2015, parrotted the same line as David Cameron-Levita (remember that little bastard?) and George Osborne, more or less. They all belong to Friends of Israel…Oh, wait…
How absolutely typical of “them”. The Jew-Zionists always want “apology” for non-existent “wrongs”. That way they completely crush their victims spiritually, making them into craven doormats who can be then simply swept away without anyone noticing or caring.
Labour failed to win the 2019 General Election partly because, every day after Corbyn became leader, the Jew-Zionist element in the newspapers, on TV, on radio, and online were trashing not only Corbyn but also Labour.
I do not “support” Labour, as such, but if anyone is owed an apology it is the Labour membership, and it is owed that apology by the anti-Corbyn plotters in the msm and online, and by the Jewish lobby Labour Party MPs (some now ex-MPs, and not all Jewish, incidentally), such as Margaret Hodge, Luciana Berger, Tom Watson, Joan Ryan, Anna Turley, Mary Creagh, Emma Reynolds, Ruth Smeeth, Jess Phillips, Mike Gapes, Ian Austin, John Woodcock and others.
Hitchens may be right about the teaching; after all, Eton even has its own orchestra with full-time conductor, and teaching staff have included such as John le Carre (David Cornwell), but the connections are the main reason why Old Etonians flourish.
The above-linked article starts with the evident assumption that so-called “radical right” persons and organizations have to be smothered. That is the aim. Method? To “deplatform” them (eg on YouTube or elsewhere) while also taking unspecified other measures.
Not a hint in that article about the importance of free expresson on socio-political topics, not a hint that the Western “democracy” her organization supposedly supports should be open to non-System voices. Well, after all, the writer does come from the country where the Inquisition reached its most extreme level and where, more recently, the leaders of Catalan independence were sentenced, mostly in absentia, to long terms of imprisonment for dissidence.
Look at how far Africa has fallen since it was under European rule…
