I originally intended the essay below to be part of last Friday’s post about compliant drones. However, the entire piece would have been longer than I wanted, so I broke it up into two parts. And it’s a good thing I did, because the comments on the first part not only touched on issues that need further discussion, but also reminded me of others that I might otherwise have neglected to address.
The existence of the Deep State in the USA has never been more obvious than it is now. The election of Donald Trump in 2016 — not to mention the unremitting and unconcealed campaign against him ever since — has brought a welcome clarity to the ruthless machinations of the permanent government. People who had never been conspiracy theorists before have become conspiracy theorists now, because the existence of a conspiracy has never been so clear and so obvious. The creature that had previously been lurking in the shadows has come forth to snarl at us in the full light of day.
The same may be said of the globalist conspiracy. Two recent events have made the machinations of the NWO starkly visible, as if a nighttime landscape were suddenly illuminated by two successive flashes of lightning. The first was the coronavirus “pandemic”. As soon as the global governance crowd — represented by the World Health Organization — decided that the Wuhan virus was indeed the great crisis they had been waiting for, nations all over the world fell into line at the same time, implementing the same mitigation policies and drastically curtailing the civil liberties of their citizens in the same manner. The response was uncannily uniform and immediate — even Hungary climbed on board.
How could all that happen without some sort of coordination?
The second obvious sign was the appearance of simultaneous Black Lives Matter protests and riots all across the globe after the death of George Floyd. Sudden uprisings in American cities could perhaps occur without coordination, given the pervasive BLM propaganda that had already enfevered the minds of leftists and persons of color. But Sweden? Ireland? Scotland? Finland? When rioters started smashing and looting and pulling down statues in England, their modus operandi was identical to that of mobs in Minnesota, Seattle, Portland, and other American cities.
Somebody was clearly handing out instruction manuals all over the world, or at least the entire Western world. I have no doubt that the name “Soros” figured prominently in those events, but he couldn’t have been the only one.
I don’t have any definitive information about such conspiracies, but they have made their existence known the same way Planet X did, by causing visible perturbations in the orbits of other bodies. When you see that many national governments do (or allow) the same sorts of things in exactly the same manner, you know that something is out there exerting a strong gravitational tug on them.
So we’ll take it as a given that globalist conspiracies exist. What, then, are the goals of the conspirators?
Not all of the conspiring is concealed. Take the “Great Reset”, for instance. That’s not a fever dream under the tinfoil hat of a conspiracy freak, but the official policy of the World Economic Forum. We’ll own nothing, and we’ll be happy. We’ll be chipped, and we’ll never use cash again. Those goals are being openly discussed — which moves them out of conspiracy territory. Instead we might call them “proposed policy positions for global governance.”
It would be imprudent, however, to assume that there are no additional conspiracies out there. After all, if any of the grand plans to construct the Ultimate Global Utopia involve mass suffering or death, it would not be prudent to discuss them openly. Adolf Hitler understood that it would be unwise to publicly reveal the Final Solution until it was a fait accompli. One assumes that the Powers That Be are no less canny in their preparations than Der Führer.
So what might the covert goals be that are being advanced behind the gilded doors of the New World Order?
Obviously, there is no way for ordinary peons like me to be able to state with any certainty what the conspirators intend. All I can do is use my observational skills and employ Occam’s Razor in order to make educated guesses.
When conspiracy-minded people discus the plans of the globalists, two possible goals are usually adduced, and they are not necessarily mutually exclusive:
|1.||Depopulation of the planet, which is usually assumed to involve mass extermination by one or more means, and/or|
|2.||Enslavement of most of the population through biotechnology and mass surveillance.
I wouldn’t rule out either of these goals, but the longer I study the flow of events, the more unlikely I consider them to be.
As I pointed out in my previous post, the globalist oligarchs depend on the existence of billions of somnolent proles who consume the output of their various productive enterprises. The wealthy elite acquire and maintain their affluence by skimming off a small portion of the commercial-syndicalist activity that powers the global economy. Whenever money changes hands, they get a little piece of the action. As long as there are billions and billions and of such transactions (the sale of COVID “vaccines”, for example), the already wealthy become even wealthier — which is their overall goal.
Mass extermination doesn’t serve their interests. They may want to reduce the world’s population for strategic reasons, but they need to do it in a gradual, controlled fashion, over several generations, in order not to threaten their income streams.
As far as I can see, that rules out #1 as a likely motive. What about enslavement?
For thousands of years slavery was a crucial component of pre-industrial economies. Slaves built the roads, the pyramids, the viaducts, the aqueducts, and the monumental buildings. They tilled the fields and toiled in the mines. When the Greeks or the Romans went to war at sea, slaves were below decks pulling at the oars.
Slavery still exists in the 21st century, of course. The Chinese rely on slave labor in the manufacture of all the cheap gewgaws with which they flood the West. And slavery is still rife in the Muslim world, especially sexual slavery.
In general, however, most of the work that had previously performed by slaves is now done by machines. With recent advances in artificial intelligence, more and more complex tasks are being automated. The economic benefits of automation are obvious: there is no minimum wage for a mechanical laborer, no health insurance or pensions to pay for, and no human rights activists to monitor working conditions. Mind you, a few decades from now an “Androids’ Rights Alliance” might appear on the scene, but we’re not there yet.
My general point is that the oligarchs who run the world (or intend to — they’re almost there) don’t need slaves. Machines are clearly preferable. And the tasks that remain unautomated may more effectively be accomplished by workers who believe they are free, who experience no direct coercion in their employment. And they are free in a certain sense — they can switch to another less-than-remunerative job that more suits their talents, or decide to forego working entirely and descend to the slightly less affluent lifestyle of a welfare recipient.
Regardless of their employment status, the lumpenproletariat are conditioned by advertising and peer pressure to spend all of their disposable income on the bangles and fripperies that television and popular culture have taught them to crave. They are encouraged to go into debt and live beyond their means to acquire even more bric-a-brac. Their condition might be termed debt slavery, except for the fact that (in the United States at least) they can declare personal bankruptcy at periodic intervals and start the debt process all over again.
As long as such behavior is the norm — and it has been for the fifty years I’ve been paying attention — why would the global oligarchs need any slaves? The same requirements are met without coercion, using mass advertising and propaganda, intensive conditioning that begins in preschool, and a materialistic culture that has eroded or destroyed the spiritual life of the majority of the population.
Billions of people do exactly what the Powers That Be require of them. And they do it of their own free will, such as it is.
In order to make this system fully global and keep it running smoothly, compliant drones are required. They must be obedient to authority and not inclined to doubt information provided by state and corporate media. They need to fear whatever they are instructed to fear, and approve of whatever they are told is worthy of approval. They must unquestioningly hate whatever person or group is being demonized by media outlets.
In order to be kept in line they must be kept under constant observation by universal surveillance. This is where their baby monitors (“handheld devices”) come in handy. Not only do those ubiquitous accessories provide their owners with the latest propaganda and advertising, they also keep track of a user’s whereabouts and monitor his viewing and spending habits. Data acquired in this manner are uploaded to central servers where they can be aggregated and analyzed to help social marketers improve and extend their methods of subtle persuasion.
The compliant drones that are needed may be pictured as a combination of the Eloi from H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine and the denizens of the Matrix in the eponymous film. They are not slaves as the term is traditionally understood, but they are not fully autonomous nor endowed with what we would consider free will. Their behavior is closely conditioned and monitored, and those who deviate from the required parameters are shunned, marginalized, and pushed into institutional care if necessary to correct their “antisocial” tendencies.
The compliance of the drones is facilitated by universally available Soma, which is a term borrowed from Brave New World by Aldous Huxley to describe all the available psychoactive substances, licit or otherwise, that produce contentment and euphoria in those who consume them. In addition to alcohol, cannabis and the opiates, Soma would include various over-the-counter and prescription medications, such as analgesics, anxiolytics, antidepressants, Ritalin and related chemicals, and other medicines that calm and subdue the patient. It is in the state’s interest to turn a blind eye to the illegal traffic in such substances where it serves their larger purposes, especially when the trade in contraband is controlled by a faction of the global oligarchy.
As a thought experiment, imagine the haze lifting from a compliant drone’s mind long enough for him to imagine what it might be like not to live as a drone. How might one lift oneself out of dronehood?
Well, to start with, ditch the baby monitor. That’s the hardest thing of all to do, as far as I can see. I’m the only person I know who doesn’t own a smartphone, and it makes me feel like a weirdo, an eccentric outsider. I can’t take part in most of the social rituals enjoyed by people in these Latter Days. I can’t pull up into the parking lot of the doctor’s office and phone them to tell them I’m there, which since COVID has been the standard universal practice.
The pressure to “come to our house, be one of us” is immense, but I have locked myself out of it.
Next, shut down your social media accounts, all of them, even Gab and Parler, which are thoroughly infiltrated and monitored by the Deep State. Even if you’re on your laptop or tablet, you’re feeding information to the central servers about your habits and predilections, which helps them devise more effective strategies to make you unwittingly compliant.
Buy a car that doesn’t connect to the Internet, if you can find one. If it has GPS, disconnect it, because GPS is a two-way communication system that notifies the network about your exact location.
Don’t buy “smart” appliances. If possible, don’t live in a house supplied with electricity that passes through a “smart meter”.
Pay cash for your purchases whenever possible. Not only does using a credit or debit card tell the central server about your habits and tastes, it also pinpoints your location at the time you use the card.
All of the above recommendations are designed to make your digital footprint on the central servers as small as possible. Unfortunately, it’s getting harder and harder to move about in and interact with the larger world without all those digital connections. I expect ownership of smartphones to become mandatory fairly soon so that everyone can have a digitally authenticated “health passport”. Smart meters may already be mandatory in newly-constructed homes, for all I know. If not, they soon will be, and purchasing an older house will probably require an upgrade to smart meters and appliances.
Furthermore, facial recognition software is coming into wider use in surveillance devices, which means that you can be tracked fairly closely even if you don’t carry a baby monitor. Ironically, wearing the Corona Hijab may help you thwart such tracking.
We’re all going to be turned into compliant drones whether we like it or not. The window of opportunity for meaningful resistance is closing fast. It’s hard to see how we can avoid becoming part of a Chinese-style “social credit” system.
The rationales for the slide into full totalitarianism are several — health and safety (e.g. Corona), saving the planet, preventing terrorism, fighting “racism”, etc. — but the end result is the same.
There may be no way to escape the emerging dystopia except to wait for it to collapse, and the global oligarchs are doing their best to make it collapse-proof. If they succeed, we will soon get our first taste of the eternal boot prophesied by George Orwell.
Afterword about Islam
The comments on my earlier post included a discussion about how Islam fits, or doesn’t fit, into a planned Utopia inhabited by compliant drones. The Muslim immigrants being imported into the West in their millions are hardly compliant, and the political ideology that is Islam forbids them to become compliant. What, then, is their place in the globalist plan?
Their initial function seems to be to act as a lytic agent within Western culture, breaking it down into its smallest components through relentless aggression and violence, with the tacit encouragement of the state.
My intuition tells me that the architects of the Ultimate Global Utopia consider Muslims to be simpletons who will eventually be easily managed by their betters. And, in terms of IQ, Arabs, Pakistanis, and especially Somalis are indeed a couple of rungs below the Europeans, the Chinese, and the Jews.
However, those not-so-smart Arabs have been successfully gaming smarter infidels for 1,400 years, practicing divide-and-conquer and getting their opponents to destroy themselves. They don’t move in and start swinging their scimitars until the enemy is already effectively moribund, a corpse ripe for the plundering.
In other words, all bets are off. I don’t know what will happen once the rest of us have become compliant drones, and the only remaining resistance to the New World Order is Islam.
It’s too bad I won’t be around to observe that particular Götterdämmerung.
