Another bloody massacre by British forces to add to a list as long as your arm and apparently too short or irrelevant to put in the history books. The inconvenience of showing how the British acted in the colonial period of occupation in Hong Kong stands starkly in contrast to the faux disgust they shower on China today.
Along with their regime change friends in the CIA and Deep State USA, fermenting opportunities for regime change in the province seems like a good idea to endeavour to reassert some kind of ‘ownership’ of some other sovereign state’s lands.
It may have been OK to them then in the days of Empire and seem to be accepted as OK strategy for a waning modern empire as the USA is presently, however in the real world, where multipolar norms are increasingly accepted as the way forward, it remains a criminal interference on a scale only matched by the arrogance and hubris these two dying powers parade.
China has its problems. France has its problems, as does the EU. The UK has its problems and most certainly the USA has its problems. Problems are never addressed or sorted by either blaming others to cover one’s own ineptitude and crimes, nor pretending to be the world’s policeman while breaking every law in the international book. Yet that is what is served up as righteous action.
While innocent women, children and men get slaughtered almost daily in Gaza, while the terror State of Israel uses its pathetic military might to occupy illegally Palestine, the UK,US and EU allow this and all the crimes against humanity to bleed innocence and blood out of a Middle East castigated by Western terrorism.
The organs that disseminate news for these criminal political, security and military entities always focus on the message they are bad we are good. The propaganda is a thick as gravy as it pours out of Broadcasting House, The White House, that illegitimate unelected booth in Europe and their media sycophants.
As the citizens of Western governments are restrained by austerity, stamped down upon when themselves rioting for legality and decent living conditions, the storm troopers trained by Israel’s Mossad are unleashed on these voices and crushed, in the name of democracy. Absurdity has never risen so high on its illegitimate throne.
Can one get any more ironic?
The history of the British Empire, replete with royalty, lording over it all is as despicable as any horror perpetrated today. In fact today’s horrors are, it can be said, the very outcome of historical precedence. The script has changed not one iota. Years have merely passed.
In spite of more information available to the masses now than ever before, people have been neatly dumbed, silenced and acquiesced through the use of food chain, environment, chemical and mind control. Placatory all seeing, hearing, spying technology offered as ease and pleasure.
The lies proposed, believed and accepted as writ are killing not only people but lancing mortal blows on the habitat. Nature will recover, she always does. She is far superior than any crazed psychopathic mindset, in her eyes a mere mosquito bite in evolutionary terms.
We, on the other hand, all and each of us took upon ourselves, when entering this foray the sacred duty of becoming. That is to investigate, develop and increase our awareness of what it is to be human, part of humanity and grow. So many have not only forgotten that contract, they have willingly disabused it out of wilful ignorance, arrogance and plain deaf dumb and blind adherence to an authority that pretends to be in their interest.
When sheep like this multiply, then surely the slaughter is not far behind.
The atrocities in Hong Kong, committed by the British in 1967 are mere footnotes now in our collective history, illustrating the true nature of despotism, totalitarian and fascist rule , dressed as democracy accompanied by the never ending bullshit of righteousness thrown like dung in our faces, with orders to eat it or shut it!
Change has never been needed more seriously. Will it come about? Hope still breathes and exists on life support. May it never be the last casualty.
