Our English correspondent Seneca III weighs in on the current UK police state under the ChiCom virus regime.

Sir Robert Peel Must be Rolling in His Grave
by Seneca III
Things have come to a sorry pass in this once green and pleasant land. As I look around subsumed by dismay and morbid fascination, I have been forced to come to some appalling conclusions:
- A society in which you are investigated for your thinking when you openly question whether men can “be” women is a Sick Society.
- A society in which you are arrested for detaining a man who molests your daughter in public is a Dhimmi State.
- A society in which tens of thousands of organised sexual crimes against children go knowingly unpunished to avoid the terrible charge of racism is a Conquered State.
- A society in which it is bigoted to object to having ageing men dressed as women “twerk” to pre-school children in a public library is a Deviant Society.
- A society in which basic observations of reality are forbidden by the use of magic words — “racism” “-phobia” — is a Silenced State.
- A society in which you can be ruined for speaking the truth out loud is a Police State.
- A society in which the shameful and disgusting are celebrated as virtues is a Failed State.
- A society which has replaced the national home with the borderless market of everywhere is a Globalist State.
- A society in which an invented grievance is a good career move is a Doomed State.
- A society that penalises the talented and the bright in the name of “diversity” is a Suicidal State.
It is no surprise then that UK cops have been knuckling down clearing the streets and public places when there is no necessity to do so under even the latest Covid rules, and even when people were complying with them. They have actually gone to the length of poisoning scenic lakes so that people will not endanger the new status quo by travelling to look at them and enjoy the scenery and the fresh, healthy air.
This is no surprise, really, as it is axiomatic that the more power given to any police, the more they will abuse it. That is a law of nature, has ever been thus, and is one which in this particular case is exacerbated by three factors. The first is that their officer class is, on the whole, populated by graduate Common Purpose drones and ambitious box-tickers who appear to have nothing but contempt for Peelian principles. I doubt if they’re even taught anymore at Bramshill* (or whatever they’ve restructured and renamed it in the name of PC progress since 2015).
The second is that the collective IQ of the beat constabulary is now not, shall we say, particularly high for reasons iterated below, and thus thinking things through pragmatically in the light of observed reality is not really their forte. This leads them to function as a type of pre-programmed automata in accordance with the vague instructions given to them in their last briefing from the drones and box-tickers who have even less of a clue about what is happening in the real world.
The third and final — and the one with perhaps the most detrimental effect on the front line — is the introduction of ‘Affirmative Action’ over the last few decades and the consequent lowering of physical and mental entry qualifications in order to meet politically mandated quotas, many of such recruits having ideological motivations not in keeping with those of the majority population they exercise power over.
These powers are not something they or the government will willingly give up, and it is not out of the question that come the day — in approximately six months by my reckoning when they should do so by self-relinquishing these powers through the ‘Sunset Clause’ recently appended to the enabling legislation — they may not, but extend instead.
Consequently, for the time being, when being questioned or having your thoughts corrected, being fined or arrested, just smile sweetly, be polite and always use English with as many three or more syllable words as you can muster. There is little else you can or should do until the moment of truth re the Sunset Clause — and if it is extended, then…
Basic Rules for Guerrilla Warfare
|1.||Before attacking fully, determine the strengths and weaknesses of the enemy, particularly those points where he is most vulnerable, e.g. his supply lines and communications systems.|
|2.||Strike from the direction least expected. Change that direction frequently. Never strike from the front. After a strike break up and disappear into the crowds and your normal routine.|
|3.||Be a distributed organization difficult to penetrate; the classic cell structure is perfect for this.|
|4.||Initial priority is not to inflict specific enemy casualties but to disturb the hive and win hearts and minds to join with you and fight for you.|
|5.||Slowly apply leverage to the enemy’s weak points.|
|6.||Be prepared to stay in it for the long haul. Watch, wait and adapt accordingly. Vary points of attack and introduce new tactics whenever possible. Keep the enemy on his back foot and don’t ease up on the pressure.|
|7.||Hope and pray this never has to be, but if it must, it must be.
