Bend the knee, peasants! | The Spectator Australia
The collapse of the nation-state has been instrumental in strengthening the power and influence of global institutions.
How did this failure occur?
There has been a combination of factors: weakened nationalism, the Woke ideology, decades of institutionalized left-wing indoctrination, corporate social responsibility, the importance of virtue signaling, and reliance on the government. Such things have prepared society for manipulation and control.
Belief in a healthy level of national pride has faded. Its remnants were replaced by a collectivist ideology so deep and effective that it forced us into submission. It did this by being quietly institutionalized and rooted in our subconscious.
In the post-Covid world, if a citizen does not demonstrate respect for the current common cause, they are automatically assumed to be against or sympathize with those who refuse to bend the knee.
With the love of the country lost, the era of global elites has begun.
As the World Economic Forum holds its final seminar in Davos, elites around the world have reaffirmed their justification for a crackdown on free speech. They also played with ideas of global surveillance on a level not even conceived by Orwell. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has come together to lay the groundwork for a global treaty that undermines the sovereignty of nations.
Democratic leaders have felt a surge of smugness so tantalizing that the real people they are there to represent have grown foggier with every sip of expensive champagne. Their blurry vision has made democracies around the world unrecognizable.
The global response to Covid, led by the WHO, demonstrated that citizens of the world were largely compliant. With a bit of fear and coaching, they took the advice of health bureaucrats who imposed policies that were often irrational, draconian, invasive and destructive. People agreed to the demands largely due to the threat of fines, avoidance of social stigma and genuine fear of the virus resulting from relentless and alarmist media coverage.
Those who remained skeptical turned to information from sources such as The British medical journal, investigative journalists like Sharri Markson What really happened in Wuhan, and academics on the model of Gigi Foster et al The great Covid panic.
Independent media began to gain traction as the Real Rushkan brought the realities of the Melbourne protests to our screens and Joe Rogan interviewed ‘controversial’ figures such as Dr Robert Malone (inventor of mRNA vaccines).
Despite attempts to censor and reduce counter-arguments, big tech and government authorities have yet to be able to stamp out their voices. Presenting counter-ideas such as “disinformation” and a “threat to national security and safety” is how free speech will be suppressed in the near future.
It is a behavior reminiscent of communist societies.
In the space of less than two years, Australian society has voluntarily initiated the transition from libertarianism to totalitarianism. This was done in the name of a pandemic with a 99.5% survival rate.
We are now gearing up for the next phase of the WEF’s global agenda, shamelessly detailed in Klaus Schwab’s book The Great Reset.
As the recent Australian federal election demonstrated, climate change is the most important issue for many people and was the deciding factor in the 2022 election. It is the threat of climate change that the WEF will use to expand its reach in our country.
Modeling and projections of the impact of rising temperatures on our planet have so far been imprecise and exaggerated. Since 1980, scientists have been predicting alarmist outcomes: the snow is dying out, Antarctica remains the only habitable place on Earth, the oceans are drowning cities, and an array of other doomsday predictions that have failed to materialize.
If climate modeling is unreliable and no scientist ever seems willing to admit its failures, why do people continue to believe dire predictions? Why have so many people accepted the inaccurate modeling of academics such as epidemiologist Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London, who said Covid must kill at least 40 million people worldwide?
It comes down to fear and how effectively that fear can sink into the collective psyche.
The exaggerated and disproportionate response to the Covid outbreak has demonstrated how dangerous blind belief in projected modeling can be. Moreover, the mainstream media have betrayed their once sacred duty to hold governments to account. It can no longer be trusted to meaningfully question, criticize, or challenge those who are meant to serve the people.
At the WEF forum in Davos, Australia’s Electronic Safety Commissioner, Julie Inman, told attendees that freedom of speech and other human rights needed to be “recalibrated”. Inman has decried the “polarization” and “binary” feel currently playing out online and wants to address it by restricting freedom of expression. In other words, it’s much better if we all agree and only receive approved information.
Red flag a lot?
We all want a healthy and prosperous planet, but we also want a free and democratic society. Can the two coexist?
Can we achieve better outcomes for the planet and its people without succumbing to totalitarianism, a growing wealth divide and the destruction of the democratic pillars of civilization?
Can the Enlightenment be reborn?
We need leaders who are prepared to uphold national sovereignty, resist the influence of global organizations such as the WEF and WHO, and implement policies that honor the lessons of the past and achieve best results for the planet without sacrificing the freedom we have left.
Australia did not vote for such leaders.
We will therefore be subject to a fearmongering policy endorsed by the Teal Independents who represent wealthy voters. They are virtuously busy reporting their climate credentials, comforted in knowing that it is not they who will feel the pressure of green policies, but rather low-income families who do not have the privileged position of influence and power. .
