"Hasn't the 'Great Reset' sunk in yet? OF COURSE things will never return to normal. They don't want you freely mixing, talking, thinking collectively. You have to do their bidding.
When they say 'you will own nothing' - they mean it, and all that you DO own, you will slowly lose through one circumstance or another - no house, cars, or other goods.
They will be owned by the elite, who will rent or lease stuff to you, even your own, which they may well have confiscated.
You cannot eat red meat, smoke, drink excessively, travel, own and drive a car, and you will be obliged to keep away from country areas, redesignated as 'prohibited to humans.'
It's all been planned for years, and we know it has. But we couldn't believe it, could we? And what happens?
It all comes to fruition under our very noses, and we appear powerless to do anything about it.
So what ARE you going to do? I suggest ditching your masks, refusing tests, vaccines and lockdowns, for a start ...
Otherwise, you will like it, obey, and 'be happy' as directed"

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience" [C.S. Lewis].
"Hero to zero within 6 months - that must be a record for any Prime Minister. Britain was duped into thinking it was voting for Churchill when all it got was Benny Hill - but at least Benny Hill had some value - he did make you laugh at least - whereas there is nothing remotely cheerful about this control-freak and his Conservative Socialist Workers Party that appears to be drunk on state power and enjoying every moment dictating and controlling every aspect of peoples lives with their insane decrees that even the police are ignoring because they are impossible to enforce. Boris is slowly transforming into Kim Jong-un - he even encouraged North Korean style happy clapping once a week for state health care. This bozo has finally been unmasked as the fraud he really is. Never voting for this bumbling power-mad idiot again. Voted Boris and still got Corbynism" [reader's comment at source].

To Descend into Totalitarianism or to Rise Up and Free Ourselves? (08 January 2022)
"We in Western societies naively imagine we would never descend into Totalitarianism, because such systems are unmistakably evil and we are undeniably good. Not only would we immediately recognise it, but our moral goodness and inestimable courage would see to it that we stopped it before it even took root. In reality, however, such systems never arise vowing to deliver evil, but always promising to do good ... those propagating them are the self-proclaimed saviours of society, dealing with the problem and the enemy which they themselves have defined, and presenting the cause to the masses not as outright evil but rather unmitigated good. In our smugness, we imagine that we could never go along with such systems because we would see from early on the evil intent and - because we're not evil - would oppose it with all our might..."
Australia Is Going Full Fascist ...But Resistance Is Growing (23 August 2021)
"Covid19 has been used as an excuse to increase government control of pretty much everything, pretty much everywhere. It is, without question, the greatest campaign to seize power, and greatest assault on personal freedom, of my lifetime. With countries seemingly in a contest to outdo each other's clampdowns, lockdowns, quarantines and surveillance programs. From the beginning of the 'pandemic' three countries, in particular, have set the pace on this - Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Since last spring these three have been one-upping each other in a race to the fascist finish line ... Increasingly their rules and limitations are becoming not just tyrannical but literally insane..."

I know a lot of people will go 'Ah, Joe Normie, he'll never wake up' - well, you might be right, and in fact, I think you probably are right, but if Joe Normie doesn't wake up soon, we're screwed... cos Joe Normie will drag the rest of us down to hell with him..."
Boris Johnson Has Become the Servant of Incompetent Scientists (02 October 2020)
"Over a span of 60 years as a journalist, covering mainly general news in a dozen countries I became intrigued by a study of how humans are actually governed.

At the worst end is the ruthless dictatorship into which we are slowly converting, albeit with the shivering consent of an apparent majority of our people. In this transformation there are always five steps..."
This is Government by Bullying (02 October 2020)
"All the talk of a 'new normal' has produced no new ideas, but it has exacerbated the division that existed between two old worldviews. One can be classified as socialist, or the belief that individuals are products of their societies and that virtuous people can be manufactured by a properly ordered state; the other as Judaeo-Christian, that the individual is possessed of innate moral agency that allows anyone to be virtuous and, moreover, that it is the right and duty of every individual to exercise that power for themselves ... Can conscience be manufactured and yet retain its value? Can it be imposed from without and still be called conscience?..."
New Rules! Covid Forever, Forever Covid! (09 September 2020)
"I knew this cruddy plan was in the making but I swear I never thought I'd live to see it carried out. In the end it took the elite psychopaths about 70 years how to figure out the best fake emergency to drive the small people back into their hovels. But - in their view - it had to be done. The common herd had become just a little bit too motivated after WWII. A little too smart, a little too suspicious of governments which had led them to the slaughter twice in a century ... The globalist control-freaks were busy ... creating unelected, unchallengeable 'authorities' like the UN, the WHO, the World Bank ... an international matrix of 'mass media' organisations was assembled, with the aim of allowing elitist propaganda to be spread simultaneously across the world..."
BITCHUTE: The NWO Agenda Revealed - with Rosa Koire (24 June 2020)
"In today's video, I'm joined by Rosa Koire, who is of Democrats Against UN Agenda 21, and she's also the author of the book Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21 ... When I heard about A21, A2030, over the last number of years, I thought it was just a quack conspiracy theory on some fringe lunatic website, and then I was forced to have to re-evaluate my belief on this entire thing when this Covid crisis kicked off, and initially I was 100% buying into this ... 'Shut everything down, this is like Spanish Flu', and it wasn't until they actually mandated everything and forced us into our homes, that I thought, 'Hold on a second, this lockdown is extremely authoritarian... what's actually happening?' I started to look into the death rates, started to look into the data modelling, started to see that things weren't adding up, the media was not reporting honestly on it. This has been the thread that has led me all the way to reaching the UN Agenda 21..."
"That is why these strange crowds have begun to gather round ancient and forgotten monuments, demanding their removal and destruction. They do not know what they want, or understand what they are destroying. But that no longer matters. They think their moment has come, and they may well be right ... ignorant armies seek the final abolition of Britain ... It is not the largely fictional 'R' number which governs the behaviour of our feeble Government, which is only just beginning to grasp how much damage it has done and how hard it will be to repair. It is the 'F' number, the number of people scared into pathetic timidity by the sick but false claim we were all at risk from a terrible and devastating disease..."
Is the Coronavirus Scare A Psychological Operation? (06 June 2020)
"Governments have used psychological warfare throughout history to manipulate public opinion, gain political advantage, and generate profits ... it's reasonable to wonder if the extreme response to COVID-19, and its associated virus SARS-COV-2, could be another psychological operation against the public ... If COVID-19 has been co-opted for manipulation of the public, through hyping the threat and pushing exploitive solutions, who is behind it and who benefits? ... The outcomes of the coronavirus scare have included huge windfalls for billionaires, financial institutions, and corporations. Legislation being passed in response to COVID-19 is largely beneficial to corporate interests. The outcomes for everyone else have been fear, unemployment, poverty, loss of freedoms, grave risks to democracy, and death. How this is possible is related to the fact that governments, and the nations they represent, are no longer what they were..."

Empty hospitals? Dancing nurses in precious PPE? More deaths from (now) untreated cancers than by the virus? No test for COVID-19 that doesn't also include having a cold? List all deaths as Coronavirus ... almost no one has now died from COPD, heart disease, pneumonia, etc since this began" / "Make 1984 fiction again!" / "So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannise will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious or otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men"
"There are two main areas of scientific 'expertise' which the Johnson regime relies upon to decide how it will deal with the Covid-19 'pandemic' ... The first is the team at Imperial College ... The second is the army of behavioural 'scientists' who have been 'nudging' us at every opportunity into making decisions which favour the preferred options set by global policy makers ... It should perhaps come as no surprise that the message from the UK Government for several weeks now has been that the behaviour of the public is key to any decisions regarding the lifting of the so-called lockdown. What might be more surprising to many is that the types of behavioural change being demanded of us by the Behavioural Insights 'experts' in response to a global 'pandemic' fit so nicely with the aims and objectives of those pushing for global change via the Millennium Development Goals."

Lockdown Is Slavery. Governments Are Out of Control (27 April 2020)
"This was the year your liberty vanished, ladies and gentlemen ... One bit at a time, post-war UK governments had already shaved away chunks of the liberty that generations had fought to achieve. By 2020 only a few basic freedoms were left. The freedom to assemble in public, the freedom to earn your living and the freedom of speech were the last trio. Mere remnants of the much freer society enjoyed by the peaceable citizens who rebuilt Britain after WWII. Overnight, all three were gone. This wasn't the first big power power-grab attempted by the vaccine/lockdown/world order..."
YOUTUBE: Our Post-Virus Future (27 April 2020)
"Outlining how the 2020 virus pandemic is ushering in globalist policies that will solidify a one-world government."
"As UK Government moves the goalposts for ending its lockdown, and also newly insists the public adopts further behavioural alteration that somehow was not required before, it becomes ever clearers that restriction of the spread of a disease called 'Covid-19' is not a motivating factor. Instead, 'Covid-19' is being used as a pretext to control the activity of the public: to manage its behaviour. Thus we can say that the disease that UK Government actually wants to inhibit is behaviour that is unsanctioned ... It should be clear that if the UK Government will not lift lockdown, it must then be its goal to create a permanently altered mode of being based on an illusion of fear..."

Our Growing Surveillance State (14 April 2020)
"It's a new day ... And we have more very worrying cases of not just a docile society of sheep, but worse yet, countless folks who are now so very happy to turn in their own neighbours for supposed and imagined violations of state regulations. That alone should shock every single one of us..."
"Perhaps the scariest thing so far - more scary you might argue, than anything the actual virus has managed - is the effect the media-generated hysteria is having on a cowed, abject and compliant populace. Instead of resisting draconian constraints on their freedom, a disturbing number of people have welcomed them. Not content with sheepishly doing exactly as they're told, they have even gone so far as to snoop and snitch on their neighbours for perceived infractions such as 'taking more than one piece of exercise per day' or buying non-essential goods in the supermarket ... I'm ashamed of my fellow journalists in the MSM for stoking up this panic. But I'm even more ashamed of those of my countrymen ... who have embraced authoritarianism not just with panic-driven alacrity but also with more than a hint of fascistic enthusiasm..."
The Latest Cases of Covidiocy (12 April 2020)
"Yes, corona is real and dangerous. But statist overreactions, overzealous policing, mass lockdowns and shutdowns, and the destruction of economies are also real and dangerous ... Since it seems that there may be far more sheeple out there than those who dare to try to think critically, ask hard questions, and seek the truth, I for one will keep posting articles like this. Do I have all the truth? Of course not. But the only way we can get to the truth is to not accept everything the state tells us, to learn how to ask probing questions, and to learn how to do some independent thinking. So let me offer what has now become my daily list of outrageous corona crisis crackdowns and overkill..."
Corona and the Rule of Law (11 April 2020)
"One thing that distinguishes free and democratic societies from thuggish dictatorships is the rule of law. This means, among other things, that the law applies equally to the ruled and the rulers ... It also means things like laws being clearly defined, stated and explained, so that people know what their obligations are. It also steers clear of things like arbitrary arrests and the like ... the rule of law acts as a bulwark against statism and unbridled government power ... It is no surprise then that as the rule of law breaks down, the rise of tyranny accelerates. And this can easily happen during times of national emergency..."
On Our Corona Surveillance State (10 April 2020)
"Now, more than ever, we need to bear a few things in mind. Simple things. Basic things. But things that can too easily go out the window in times of crisis and national emergency ... Don't stop thinking. Don't stop asking questions. Don't stop discerning. Don't stop seeking to test all things. Don't just presume that what you are being told is right. Don't assume your government always has your best interests at heart. Don't assume the state knows better than you do. Don't go to sleep when you should be especially vigilant..."
Can We Vote Ourselves into Slavery? (06 April 2020)
"Why governments respond to coronavirus by converting so-called liberal democracies into police states is reasonably clear. Any political institution of modernity, regardless of its self-description, is mainly concerned with self-empowerment. However, democracies need a credible justification for their powerlust, and in that sense Covid-19 is a godsend. The message of 'it's all for your own good' cant be gainsaid easily ... The Christian believes his life is eternal. He also knows from history books that the life of a state isn't: even extremely successful ones only ever lasted between 1,000 and 1,500 years. Compared to eternity, this stretch is miniscule. That individual will therefore perceive himself as more significant than the state and for that reason alone will never accept its tyranny ... he is transcendent, but the state is transient. Hence in everything that matters he can only regard the state not as his master but as his servant ... the materialist may well accept the tyranny of a powerful state more readily. After all, his lifespan is much shorter than the state's..."

"I thought I would write about the astonishing implications for liberty of the events of the last few weeks. With the exception of Silkie Carlo of Big Brother Watch, almost no significant public figure has raised any concerns about this, and I had been unsurprised to see our vast 'Human Rights' industry (concerned as it tends to be with the 'rights' of criminals etc) unmoved by this huge assault on the fundamental freedoms of movement and assembly, made by the Johnson government - or shall we now call it a 'regime', since it has effectively got rid of Parliament - not that Parliament minded much?

There Is A Difference Between the Law and Official Instructions (26 March 2020) (£)
"The drive behind the growing power of the state is not power-grabbing politicians, but popular demand ... Public pressure for action at whatever cost pushes the measures beyond what they realistically expect to achieve. It may well push them beyond what is worth achieving if the price is the destruction of our personal liberty, livelihoods and sociability. There are dissenting voices, but not many and they are drowned out in a torrent of collective emotion and abuse ... The ordinary rule is that a person may not be detained or deprived of his liberty without specific statutory authority ... The Civil Contingencies Act confers a temporary power of legislation on ministers that is exercised in a national emergency, but no specific power to detain people at home ... There is a difference between law and official instructions. It is the difference between a democracy and a police state..."
Coronavirus Bill: the Greatest Loss of Liberty in Our History (25 March 2020)
"The Bill gives the government and the authorities unprecedented new powers, unheard of in a democracy during peacetime. Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch, has warned that these powers are unreasonably draconian and could be here to stay long after the threat of the virus has dissipated ... 'The duration of the powers is one of the first things that stands out. The bill was drafted to allow its powers to last for two years - an extremely long time for such extreme emergency powers ... The slippery slope might be an overused term, but it is very, very difficult to reverse the handing over of such extraordinary powers. The other concerning thing is that we already have structures in place to deal with emergencies, namely the Civil Contingencies Act. Under [this] Act, government can lay regulations which have to be reviewed within seven days, but they can last for up to 30 days. And that is an appropriate mechanism, for measures like arbitrary detention powers or any powers which you would never normally find acceptable in a democracy. But that Act hasn't been used'..."
Government Uses Coronavirus to Make Britain A Police State (24 March 2020)
"The government put proposals to Parliament yesterday, which bring Britain closer to being a Police State; this is unprecedented in the peacetime history of the nation. These proposals were ostensibly to help in the fight against the coronavirus, but in reality, they are powers they do not need in that fight ... The government has passed draconian legislation which will give them dramatic powers to curb individual liberties. They originally wanted them to last for two years and this very fact creates suspicions as to why they really want the powers..."
Why Are So Many Journalists Clamouring For A Police State? (23 March 2020)
"In the age of Covid-19, the media clamour for a total shutdown of all public life, and the for the police or army to line the streets, has become deafening ... Some journalists have become positively unhinged in their demands for a police state ... left-wing journalists have discovered a fondness for the security state, calling on a government they usually deride as fascistic to wield the truncheon with more vigour. Even when the government's expert advice says that now is not yet the best time to clock down London for the country to 'flatten the curve', the media narrative remains unchanged..."

We Must Take Coronavirus Seriously (26 February 2020) [NB: some strong language]
"Fear is such a cool thing if you want to total control of the planet. They tried the annihilation of all life on earth - nuclear holocaust: Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD), then global warming (Climate Change) and now we get Coronavirus (laboratory product) ... Strange how the songs of praise to globalism and open borders never include a verse about how quickly a 'killer disease can go global' is it not?..."
"Step One: The community taking over all the arms of government is always numerically tiny.
"Step Two: Is the creation of a nationwide campaign of fear or terror. This pan-national fear was gifted to those now ruling us in the arrival from the Orient of a disease called Covid-19 ...
"Step Three: When people are badly frightened they're extremely gullible. They will believe whatever they are told. We have all lived through seven months of unrelenting propaganda on radio, TV, speeches from on high, and placards and the press to convince us that death stalks at our side. Figures are cooked, statistics cobbled, research stultifies, to endorse the death-is-everywhere message.
"Step Four: The assurance from the tiny group that they and only they can save us from a horrible fate, but only if we all abide by and obey a tidal wave of rules and regulations - no matter if these destroy the nation we once knew and loved. Fear, deliberately inspired fear, rules supreme.
"Step Five: There will always be dissenters, who must be dealt with, as I witnessed years ago in my year in East Berlin. We have just witnessed the imposition of Stage Five - creation of a sort of secret police to spy, pounce, and punish. Back then it was estimated a full third of East Germans spied on and informed on neighbours for the Stasi. This, Boris Johnson has now encouraged us to adopt as a lifestyle. He has created the untrained army of Covid marshals and threatened that he will use the police and the army, created and sworn to protect us, to persecute us ...
"Of this be certain: unless our elected parliamentarians, who listen to their constituents, act and act fast the tyranny of our new and useless masters will never be broken. But broken it must be if we are ever to be a free people again" [source].
"To the former I say without malice, 'I do not intend to change my way of life just because you are frightened.' To the latter I say with malice, 'What you try to take from me and impose upon me - danegeld and subservience - mark you for what you are. I know you by what you do, not by what you say. You peddle nothing but disinformation and puerile lies in your own narrow interests.'
"Consequently, those of you of the herd who live in fear are free to stay home indefinitely. You can wear your progressively diseased and suffocating masks and socially distance yourself from me on your permitted occasional outings; you can avoid restaurants and Pubs, you can believe the fabricated death numbers and stay away from beaches, parks and other public spaces. I will not join with you for I am finished with indulging the rulemakers of this malignant game.
"No longer am I prepared to be a prisoner of your fear or their threats. I will not vegetate in my house nor be imposed upon by anyone simply because they are scared. I will not wear a mask and I will not stay six feet away from you anymore because I'm not afraid of you. You the herd are not my enemy and if I get sick it's not because of you, it's because of my age and vulnerabilities, the times in which we live and the luck of the draw.
"Millions upon millions of people have already encountered this virus as you have done with influenza and many others in the past. Now and in the future you will have to confront it if you haven't already. There is no way around it unless you lock yourself up in your house and it somehow doesn't manage to sneak in on the mail or groceries ordered online, but even if it does not then you will die anyway, some soon, some later, and some of you will die alone of untreated morbidities or suicide induced by cabin fever.
"Your fear is being utilised by the establishment as [the] means to disempower us all. Well, it is not my fear, and no one, including that imploding collection of dysfunctional little Stalinists in Westminster has the right to try to destroy my way of life or my future as a free born Englishman. If you are scared you can continue racing along with the rest of the panicked herd but just stay away from me and keep you fear confined to yourselves. Do not try to contaminate me, my family nor my Country with your childish hysteria. Man up, the lot of you, and take your lives back into your own hands with way the dice fall.
"And, if you're one of the avaricious fear-mongering predators promoting this exercise in socio-political engineering in order to sustain your sinecures and increase your wealth I would advise you that soon it may not be safe for you to go out into the very same darkness you are trying to create.
"We gave you the time you asked for to 'Save the NHS', for PPE, for ventilators, and Nightingale hospitals, so now use them for their intended purpose.
"Finally, I would further advise that you reverse course while you still can. The personal befits that you were hoping to accrue now sit fragmenting in one pan of the scales of retribution as a great, angry biomass quietly assembles in the other. If you persist, I shall not weep for your violent passing nor shall I beg mercy for you... you will have crossed the Rubicon without my help" [comment at source].
"Covid-19 is supposedly a pneumonia as a complication of SARS-COV-2, but ...
