A Canticle for the Benighted

A no-deal Brexit? More Brexit negotiations? A second referendum?

While all the Brexit uproar continues, Seneca III sends this somewhat different food for thought.

A Canticle for the Benighted

by Seneca III

This short monograph is an elaborated version of a hurried comment re. the ongoing Brexit debacle that I posted on ‘Breitbart London’ yesterday, so it may not be totally new to some of you.

I offer it here because the original version dealt only with the British State’s carefully thought out long-term plan for the draconian subjugation of its citizens and then their ethnic sacrifice on the altar of what is variously known as the New World Order, Globalisation or the ‘Multicultural Human Rights Project’ (which has little to do with rights and even less with humanity), particularly in the light of the accession to and signing of the UN’s Global Compact for Migration by so many once-independent nations, including my own.

Yet across Europe and the UK, predominantly amongst the common man, within the working and middle classes, there has been a sea change in perceptions, a steep rise in awareness of the fate that is being planned for them in the halls of privileged power, a change that has manifested itself in the form the yellow vest movement and similar groups across the continent taking to the streets in often violent protest.

Thus, there is about us a time of uncertainty, turmoil, civil unrest and perhaps even insurrection. The response of individual states within and without the collective EU entity will vary depending upon their involvement in the globalisation project. The extent of their commitment thereto, both material and ideological, will determine the extents to which they will go to preserve it and their once-comfortable sinecures within it.

In view of the quiet existence of the UK ‘Civil contingencies Act 2004’ exposed below, I have little doubt that somewhere buried deep in the legislative bowels of other European nations and EU Command Headquarters there are similar instruments of suppression with their attendant mechanisms designed to ensure the ascension of the self-designated ruling elite to the high thrones of supreme power. The 2013 SF film Elysium springs to mind, despite the fact that the orbit wherein the elites resided projects much further into the future than the reality that is now, and is far beyond our current technological abilities — the first Elysium, if they manage to build it, will be here on Mother Earth, perhaps in Brussels or Strasbourg, the wombs wherein this grotesque child has been gestating for the last fifty years. And, once before, further East:

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more — we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn (1918-1956), The Gulag Archipelago

Now go read Blair’s ‘Civil contingencies Act 2004’… and read it with eyes wide open, understanding that the first few sections present as if this Act is preparing for what seem to be predominantly natural disasters or external threats, and hence establishes a legal basis for future reactions thereto. When you get deeper in you may begin to appreciate that this document is far more than that — it is a draconian personal survival plan for the elites should we ever decide to rise up against them. They, the New World Order-Globalist apparatchiks in Westminster and amongst their enforcement arms in the Executive branches, will use it to the full rather than allow us to set ourselves free.

Or, if you don’t want to wade through it all, then read Section 22 either in its entirety or just its sub-section (3) and particularly its sub-subsection (i).

The political classes knew back then what they were going to do to have to do to destroy this country in the name of their malignant project, and what our responses might be once we finally realised what was being done to us.

Think hard, plan carefully and organise quietly, for when that time comes you will have nothing left to lose but your children’s chains.

  1. I read about the ‘Leave the EU without a deal in March 2019’ petition on this website yesterday. It noww has 2006,000 signatures and rising.

    I’m writing this ask Gates of Vienna to include a link to the petition at the top of their page because if we don’t make ourselves heard the ruling class are going to steal our Brexit.

    Many Thanks.

  2. I would suggest reading “The Coming Insurrection”, either in the original French or in translation. It is the plan of the postmodern world that we now face. It is a dangerous book for dangerous times.

  3. Didn’t Jesus say we must do unto others as we would have them do unto us?

    The civil contingencies act 2004 cannot have been written by Christians because it flies in the face of Jesus’ instruction.

    In addition, I can only assume that those who write these laws and those who vote for them to become law are labouring under the mistaken belief that these laws will never be used against them. That may be so for the few at the top of the pecking order but for the rest, the minions and useful idiots, if they step out of line, they will be treated as harshly as the rest of us.

    This law and others like it must be repealed; the question is, where is the will to do that?

    • “…labouring under the mistaken belief that these laws will never be used against them.”

      Excellent point.

      I believe it is the same mental process that soldiers have on the battle field.
      They are unhappy to harm and kill other people and but they are more terrified of the possibility of being killed themselves but strangely they hold onto the belief that they will probably not be harmed. Only the others will be hurt or killed.

  4. Wow. The full machinery of state suppression of the people. Dissent and resistance to tyranny is a crime, if and when your elite masters so decide.

    22: Scope of emergency regulations:
    (3)Emergency regulations may make provision of any kind that could be made by Act of Parliament or by the exercise of the Royal Prerogative; in particular, regulations may—
    (i)create an offence of—
    (i)failing to comply with a provision of the regulations;
    (ii)failing to comply with a direction or order given or made under the regulations;
    (iii)obstructing a person in the performance of a function under or by virtue of the regulations;

    It could not be more clear. Thanks for digging this up and reminding us.

    • Yeah.

      I have to confess that it was kind of fun to read the act: like playing Bloodbourne or Red Dead Redemption 2 video games: you’re totally immersed in evil and you just have to go through and navigate the details.

      Each section is composed of one or two subsections. Generally, the first subsection delineates a reasonable limit to the power defined. The second subsection completely demolished any limitations to the power. I’ll give one example.

      19 Meaning of “emergency”
      (1) In this Part “emergency” means—
      (a) an event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare
      in the United Kingdom or in a Part or region

      (2) For the purposes of subsection (1)(a) an event or situation threatens damage to
      human welfare only if it involves, causes or may cause—
      (a) loss of human life,
      (b) human illness or injury,
      (c) homelessness,
      (d) damage to property,
      (e) disruption of a supply of money, food, water, energy or fuel,
      (f) disruption of a system of communication,
      (g) disruption of facilities for transport, or
      (h) disruption of services relating to health.
      Civil Contingencies Act 2004 (c. 36)
      Part 2 — Emergency powers
      (3) For the purposes of subsection (1)(b) an event or situation threatens damage to
      the environment only if it involves, causes or may cause—
      (a) contamination of land, water or air with biological, chemical or radioactive
      matter, or
      (b) disruption or destruction of plant life or animal life.

      So, the emergency powers are engaged if a radio station gets its power shut off, or I stop watering my plants, if the authorities so choose.

      In mitigation, it’s good to keep in mind that no government is going to go quietly into the night if threatened by an armed force or insurrection. Abraham Lincoln almost completely ignored the Constitution during the Civil War, and truthfully, I can’t really fault him for that. Any head of state who risks losing a war because of legalities is not doing his job, which is to protect the government. This is an amoral stance: it doesn’t matter whether a government is moral or immoral.

      I think the machinery of repression is already being laid: the draconian nature of the “hate” laws, the almost complete arbitrary authority of the police, the ever-increasing bureaucracy, the centralization of police authority, and the expansion of external military commitments.

      Possibly the greatest threat is the creation of a maga-national military force controlled by the EU. This force would be used in the same way as the USSR military was used to control Hungary, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Poland when the national military and police lost their taste for killing and oppressing their own citizens. I think the EU military would be available for use in the UK, whether or not the UK formally exited. The intervention would be abetted, and probably called for, by the likes of Cameron, May and Blair.

  5. All countries have State of Emergency legislation (apart from those which skip straight to martial law):
    and we should all be glad it exists in case of natural disasters or a variety of other dire threats. The CCA was partly intended to modernise older legislation enacted in less sophisticated times and was partly inspired by the possible need for an effective response to 9/11 type attacks.

    The CCA certainly gives sweeping powers to the government of the day but then so does controlling an army or having nuclear weapons. It could indeed be used for malign rather than benign purposes but Seneca III insists it was laid down specifically so that the “New World Order-Globalist apparatchiks in Westminster” can use it against the population when the time comes as a necessary part of their plan “to destroy this country in the name of their malignant project”.

    I don’t think so. In fact I suggest this is the kind of thing which gives conspiracy theories a bad name.

    • Conspiracy theory my posterior. We already had a perfectly adequate Civil Defense Act to deal with natural disasters and external threats. Blairs 2004 Act, followed by a further Act removing the death penalty for treason were designed to save his neck when the truth of his treacherous, globalist flooding of the UK with third world immigrants became public knowledge.

      Read it here…
      “Critics said the revelations showed a “conspiracy” within Government to impose mass immigration for “cynical” political reasons.”


      …and here…


      …and here…


      …and here…

      …before you start throwing wild accusations of ‘conspiracy theories’ about.

      • So now we’ve come down from “New World Order Globalist apparatchiks plotting to destroy the country” to Tony Blair saving his skin when the populace found out what he’d done, which wasn’t necessary because when the news came out it scarcely caused a ripple. I’ve heard people say jokingly that Blair ditched treason to ensure his peaceful retirement but never seriously before now.

        Andrew Neather, who was in on the relevant meetings, told us that New Labour’s motivations were no more ambitious than spitefully “rubbing the Conservatives’ noses in diversity” and importing likely Labour voters. No fiendish long term plot to destroy the country there, only the usual squalid manoeuvring for political advantage.

        And remember who was in charge of the CCA, John Prescott who is not an evil genius by any stretch of the imagination. Best known for punching a protestor and having it off with his secretary in the stationery cupboard, his skirmishes with the English language showed he was unable to think to the end of a sentence, let alone laying long term plans for the suppression of the people. And any way, there was nothing NWO about him. He was just an old style class warrior like Dennis Skinner, the Beast of Bolsover, and only put in place as a sop to Old Labour.

        But my real problem is with the New World Order you cite. People use the term as though its meaning was clear. Who is behind it – the Bilderberg Group, the Illuminati, George Soros, the EU, 12 foot lizards, the Rosthchild family etc… or some combination thereof?
        In my book it is just a place holder for things we do not understand like “dark energy” or “God”.

        No, sorry, we’re into tinfoil hat territory here.

    • The potential is there, and while the wording was innocuous enough so that your interpretation would be valid, a slight twisting of meanings could very well render the CCA, and other legislation that addresses government actions in the event of an emergency, the draconian broadsword that Seneca describes. As for conspiracies, I would say that it is simply human nature. Just as the grave is never full, so is the greedy belly. To quote John D. Rockefeller when asked how much was enough, he replied, “Just a little bit more.”

  6. A British court has just sentenced several members of National Action to between 5 and 7 yrs in prison each. No actual crime was committed but the defendants held forbidden opinions and talked to each other about it. The group aimed to overthrow democracy and eradicate whole sections of society, according to Judge Melbourne Inman QC. But isn’t that what Theresa May and her predecessors have been doing since WWII?

    • Re. the National Action trial:

      (BBC) “In total six people were sentenced for being part of what Judge Melbourne Inman QC described as a group with “horrific aims”.”

      Just to ask a non-pc question, does the judge’s name indicate that he’s a muslim?

      • What riled the judge most was one woman named her baby ‘Adolph’.
        Naming your child Muhammad should land one in jail as well.

      • No, he’s not a head banger but this judgement and sentencing appears quite out of context when a real head banger who attacked police officers with a samurai sword whilst shouting the usual Allahu Akhbar drivel has just been acquitted by a jury of his..ahem, ‘peers’.

  7. Thedrive towards population replacement could be no better illustrated than by the constant use of the term’net migration’!
