This post draws together several pieces of information from other bloggers to whom, needless to say, I offer my thanks for their hard work. For some time now I believe that it has been obvious there exist various 'movements' each with their own agenda and who's individual agenda is but part of a giant jigsaw designed to break down the individualism not only of people, but of nation states. This will result in people being 'conditioned', or 'moulded', in order that they become submissive and robotic where thought, word and deed form one behavourial pattern.
Sue (Muffled Vociferation), via twitter, alerted me to this post from American Thinker, who writes on the matter of the mammoth wasp (Megascolia maculate) American Thinker uses the following analogy to explain the spread of militant Islamism, which it is argued is eating away at the heart of European nation states
Its method of perpetuating its species is sure to freeze the blood in the veins of any impressionable person. The female of the species searches for the larva of a dung beetle or rhinoceros beetle. Once the prey is spotted, the wasp paralyzes it with one venomous sting and then lays her egg on its outer skin. On hatching, the larva of the Mammoth wasp equipped with sharp hook-like jaws bites through the helpless host's integument and proceeds to munch away on its soft tissues in a rigorously defined sequence, starting with the least vital organs, such as muscle, blood or fat, and leaving the crucial nervous system for dessert. By extending the life of the host as long as possible, the predator ensures for itself a supply of "live canned food" which stays fresh till the very end.
Next, let us turn to this post by nourishing obscurity on the subject of SRI International and the 'thought processes' that are employed:
"A nation could be programmed to change and become so accustomed to such planned changes that it would hardly be noticeable when profound changes did occur. The book title of Willis Harmon’s technical paper was The Aquarian Conspiracy and it foresaw a society where divorce drew no further stigma, suicide was at an all time high, raising few eyebrows, social deviations from the norm and sexual aberrations, once unmentionable in decent circles, would now be commonplace and excite no special protest. They would, in fact, be prescribed in law and protest outlawed, on pain of heavy penalties. The literature of government instrumentalities would include such aberrations under acceptable names such as Equality and Diversity."
Both posts show how we, the people, are being firstly 'conditioned' and then, secondly 'moulded' into a form of behaviour 'acceptable' to those 'in power'. H.L. Mencken is quoted as saying that the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. Such 'programmes' were illustrated - and expertly deconstructed - in a book: "Scared to Death" by Richard North and Christopher Booker. On the same theme an American columnist, Charley Reese, is quoted describing politics: "Here's your enemy for this week, the government says. And some gullible Americans click their heels and salute - often without knowing who or even where the enemy of the week is."
The words of both Mencken and Reese are applicable to our nation today as we have in our midst a cancer that is multiplying and destroying its heart. I allude to our quisling politicians who are content to pass our ability to decide our own laws and our own way of life to an unelected body, who operate an idealogy based on the creed of totalitarianism, situated in a foreign country. I allude to those bureaucrats employed in quangos, ngos and fake charities who seem infected with what may be described as a 'common purpose', the one aim of which is to 'order' our lives thus stifling any individual choice in that. By altering the demographic make-up of our society; by control of the education system, thus being able to 'groom' the adults of the future; by ensuring an individual's dependency on the state for cures to all the 'wrongs' we suffer; by maintaining control of what is supposed to be a free press by dictating what and how news is presented, the people of our nation are being led into a state of apathy.
Returning to the post by American Thinker and applying his analogy of the wasp, it is possible to equate that behaviour with that of the European Union. In this regard I can but reproduce part of a comment by Weekend Yachtsman on one of my posts:
"The EU are past masters at leaving the existing symbols and institutions in place and apparently functioning, while hollowing them out from behind and usurping all their powers. This is how they have got so far.
Why do you think we still have the Westminster parliament, general elections, our "own" diplomatic service, ministers "running" this that and the next thing?
All window-dressing, all of it meaningless. None of them runs anything. But they have to stay there, to keep up the pretence.
Nothing will be done obviously and openly - it never is."
The condition of apathy to which I alluded is indeed taking hold, in that we accept politicians continually informing us that they 'assume power' - they do no such thing, they 'assume office' and do so to represent the views of their electorates. Apathy has caused the people of this nation to forget that politicians only assume - and remain in - office with our consent; and that consent can be withdrawn at any time, it does not have to wait for a general election.
Once the people have stirred from their condition of apathy, the lives of politicians will be that of living on 'borrowed time'. The question is: what are those magic words that will break the spell of apathy that politicians have cast on the majority of us?
