Impunity in never being transparent, open and honest is a reward much lauded in a Kingdom of Lies and an accepted modern day droit du seigneur: the difference being they get to f**k us all over . When rulers subvert truth furthering the cause of wielding greater control and power over the masses, there can exist no democracy worth its name. Those declaring themselves true representatives of democracy, while lying down with the most disingenuous pathocracies, merely exhibit their true colours.
Leaders lie, deceive and encourage belief and trust in the utterly unacceptable and unbelievable. Their protestations backed, encouraged and supported by a media machine, itself a producer of the most blatant, wild untruths and propaganda. For a people barely living outside the confines of inured penury, poverty and delusional, distracted existence, any straw of misplaced hope or relief becomes the scent of a bitch on heat.
Our present age of falsehood on steroids fosters abject repudiation of sanity by the simpleminded, ill informed and those patently eager to follow party lines. Passivity offers a warm blanket of slavery, seen as benefit. The headline read, content ignored merely increases gullibility and vulnerability of humans eager to be led to the slaughter.
In the UK such blind adherence leads us inexorably into further, deeper chaos, greater restrictions and the potential for a very abject state of martial law. In the States the utter dumbing down of a population overfed on poison in diet, environment and information leads an already dead corpse of a nation into total decay.
Within the failed experiment that was the EU we witness the chaos of a European continent ready and willing to set upon each others’ throats through proxy refugees and ‘foreign’ elements made such pawns through the criminals’ wars of attrition and take over – seeding a greater chaos.
Truth is run out of saloon, bar, community, town and country faster than a hypersonic missile. Anyone brandishing facts and truth, any contrary version of official truth within pretty much most contexts, are lampooned, vilified, neutered and crucified – not necessarily in that order. With modern communication controlled globally by a very narrow elite, objective awareness stands at the nexus of destruction and denial.
So where does hope feature in all this? Alive in many an outlaw’s heart and soul for sure, it stands lonely and bereft. They say hope is the last to die, so are we witnessing a slow, painful and lingering death?
Unfortunately, the stakes have been driven so deep into the hearts of the just, any life saving seems an impossible mountain to climb. Yet it is always in the numbers that victory and the problem will be not only be solved, but won.
It is said Math is behind the universe. It is its central operating system. So to focus down from the greater picture of the universe to our small, chaotic interpretation of humanity, we, the Many, will always outnumber the Few. Our voice is far louder, far stronger far more able to raise victory than the squeaks, squarks and farting of the Few. No matter how rich they might appear to be, no matter how many weapons they raise against us, they can never kill us all. They will never win, though our sacrifice could be monstrous!
Yes, there will be pain, a great deal of it. That is the price for not awakening sooner. However, those who know the stakes, the score, the challenges, will rise to it, raise others and we shall see the back of the most putrid arses in history, let alone in our history, smitten.
There will be a time, not so distant, when Truth will march back in glory into the room and say:
“I own us all!”
