The scamdemic has highlighted an agenda that the global elites have been promoting for decades. They have tried on many occasions, without success, and now we have arrived at the pinnacle of their evil plans thus far. It is instrumental to consider that the majority of people supporting the current impositions are generally the ‘left’ Democrats with the ‘right’ Republicans opposing them. This has split America into two divisions – those who believe in the ‘collective’ (the herd) and those who believe in ‘freedom’ of the individual.
“Today, we face new enemies of the open society from within our own societies. Again, they make knowledge claims that are both cognitive and moral. The difference is that they don’t operate with the mirage of an absolute good, but with deliberately stoked fear of threats, such as the spread of the coronavirus or climate change. These are undoubtedly serious challenges. But they are employed to set certain values absolute, such as health protection or climate protection.
An alliance of some scientists, politicians and business leaders claims to have the knowledge of how to steer society down to family and individual life in order to safeguard these values. Again, the issue is about a higher social good – health protection, living conditions of future generations – that is posed as overriding individual human dignity and basic rights.
The mechanism employed is to spotlight these challenges in such a way that they appear as existential crises: a killer virus going around, a climate crisis threatening the livelihoods of our children. The fear that is stirred up in this way then makes it possible to gain acceptance for setting aside the basic values of our coexistence – just as in the totalitarianisms criticized by Popper, in which the supposedly good motivated many people to commit de facto criminal acts.
This mechanism consists in spreading fear and exploiting the moral value of solidarity to define this boundary in so narrow a manner that, in the end, there is no room for the free shaping of one’s life left: any exercise of freedom can be construed as generating negative externalities that threaten the freedom of others.
Consequently, everyone has to prove that their actions do not unintentionally further the spread of a virus or the change of climate, etc. – this list could be extended at will. In this manner, everybody is placed under a general suspicion of potentially harming others with everything they do.
The burden of proof thus is reversed: it is no longer required to provide concrete evidence that someone impairs the freedom of others with certainty of their actions. Rather, everyone must prove from the outset that their actions cannot have unintended consequences that potentially harm others. Accordingly, people can free themselves from this general suspicion only by acquiring a certificate that clears them – like a vaccination certificate, a sustainability passport or a social pass in general. This is a kind of modern sale of indulgences. The serious negative effects for health protection, for the entire population and viewed globally, as a consequence of the devastating damage caused by lockdowns and the like are now evident.” https://www.aier.org/article/the-new-enemies-of-the-open-society/
Of course, in Britain, the divisions are not so bipolar because Boris has won the northern red counties (The socialists HERE are the Labour people, with their ‘red’ hue to prove their alliance with communism). We call this the ‘Red Wall’ and it looks like its transition to Boris’s ‘Blue’ team is now permanent, well for the time being anyway, according to the latest by-election in Hartlepool. Unlike America where socialism has taken root, Britain is winning the battle against these toxic germs embedded in our society.
The Birmingham MP Khalid Mahmood, who recently resigned as a shadow defence minister, said the Hartlepool result reflected the fact Labour had left its traditional voters behind. He said he would no longer be willing to serve on the frontbench. “A London-based bourgeoisie, with the support of brigades of woke social media warriors, has effectively captured the party. They mean well, of course, but their politics – obsessed with identity, division and even tech utopianism – have more in common with those of Californian high society than the kind of people who voted in Hartlepool yesterday,” he wrote in an article for the thinktank Policy Exchange.
BUT even Canada is no different from America as far as I can tell from this article about life in this massive appendage of North America: “Once again, I realize I have no business writing about loss. My friends are still all employed; I really do not know anyone who runs a small shop or a restaurant. I have no idea what it would be like to watch your business disintegrate, the debts pile up and the financial vultures start circling around you. I do understand why these small business owners and employees would be so motivated for everyone to get vaccinated so that they can finally open up and claw their way out of this deep Covid hole they have been plunged into with the other end of their government issued loan lifelines handed to the big banks as a financial noose around their necks that will continually tighten in the months and years to come.
For the moment the rest of us are all still shielded by this work from home employment model that has not had any significant layoffs due to a massive, unchecked national Government wage subsidy program that even pays a 70% wage subsidy to large, significantly profitable corporations that are still paying dividends to shareholders. This white-collar job market stability is still further enhanced here in Canada by the re-bounding stock market that keeps rising to ever record heights thanks to the government debt printing machines. So, how much will they really take from us in the months and years to come?”
I feel that most of the online world I encounter is awash in mis-information, how soon will it be before the small and beleaguered sources of genuine information that I can find online are completely demonetized, de-linked, banned or de-platformed from the internet? The access to content and commenting that we have lost in the last year alone would have been incomprehensible to almost all of us just a few years ago, now the most “liberal democrats” are braying for big tech and the regulators to do more, to take more stringent actions. Soon we may experience a very harsh and unforgiving internet, one that reports us for straying outside of the ever-narrowing community guidelines.
What about my freedom, my right to refuse a hastily developed medical technology, one that has not been thoroughly tested but is still supposed to, guaranteed to (almost) provoke the appropriate immune response to a virus that poses almost no harm to me whatsoever?
What about unintended consequences? What happens to me if I suddenly develop any number of rare or debilitating health conditions in the future? My chances of catching covid-19 or experiencing ill effects from it are quite low so why can’t I be allowed to take this risk without being judged for doing so?
What happened to our acquired knowledge as a society as to how to behave when sick? This has served us well for thousands of years. When our amazing immune systems were fighting a significant illness, it was almost always obvious that the sick individual should be cared for but isolated and kept from others. Why have we lost this trust in ourselves and in our own judgement?
What can be done? Not much on our own but then quite a lot if we all do something. Close to a half a million marched in London on April 24th. It was wonderful to see. How many more will march again and often? You may well ask – read more: https://off-guardian.org/2021/04/28/what-will-we-lose/
AND – I know that we, at TBP, are frustrated at the inability of the general public to realise how at risk they are from the Great Reset agenda and Kevin Smith agrees in this stunningly honest article. Thank goodness we still have internet sites remaining uncensored so far – he says: “For me, it’s the frustration that the public are still largely oblivious to the impending nightmare about to descend on them and their families. And the powerlessness to stop it, like a slow-motion car crash. Just recently, I’ve become drawn towards some presentations and interviews involving a prominent German lawyer, Reiner Fuellmich. Quite a few readers here may have watched the same material. Last year his attention was drawn towards the response to the so-called Coronavirus crisis and with several others, set up the German Corona Investigative Committee to look into it. Now, this committee has conducted much of their investigations and are proceeding with legal actions globally. I think it’s worth summarising some of this here. Below includes my review and some thoughts on the above clips, Reiner’s approach, observations and findings, with some of my thoughts.

THUS – part of the growing totalitarianism is the “cancel culture” that is prevalent throughout the West. ZH had a great article about it this week which I summarise here: “A Greek philosopher wrote that Christians are “a race dissolved in every passion, destroyed by controlled self-indulgence, cringing and womanish in its thinking, close to cowardice, wallowing in all swinishness, debased, content with servitude in security.” If that sounds like a proto-definition of 21st century Western cancel culture, that’s because it is.
Things were also pretty bad in Alexandria. A Christian mob killed and dismembered the alluring Hypatia, mathematician and philosopher. That de facto ended the era of great Greek mathematics. No wonder Gibbon turned the assassination of Hypatia into a remarkable set piece in Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (“In the bloom of beauty, and in the maturity of wisdom, the modest maid refused her lovers and instructed her disciples; the persons most illustrious for their rank or merit were impatient to visit the female philosopher”).
Under Justinian – emperor from 527 to 565 – cancel culture went after paganism no holds barred. One of his laws ended imperial toleration of all religions, which was in effect since Constantine in 313. If you were a pagan, you’d better get ready for the death penalty. Pagan teachers – especially philosophers – were banned. They lost their parrhesia: their license to teach (here is Foucault’s brilliant analysis).
Parrhesia – loosely translated as “frank criticism” – is a tremendously serious issue: for no less than a thousand years, this was the definition of freedom of speech (italics mine).
There you go: first half of the 6th century. This was when freedom of speech was canceled in the West.
The last Egyptian temple – to Isis, in an island in southern Egypt – was shut down in 526. The legendary Plato’s Academy – with no less than 900 years of teaching in its curriculum – was shut down in Athens in 529. Guess where the Greek philosophers chose to go into exile: Persia.
Those were the days – in the early 2nd century – when the greatest Stoic, Epictetus, a freed slave from Phrygia, admirer of both Socrates and Diogenes, was consulted by an emperor, Hadrian; and became the role model of another emperor, Marcus Aurelius.
History tells us that the Greek intellectual tradition simply did not fade away in the West. It was a target of cancel culture.” https://asiatimes.com/2021/04/brave-new-cancel-culture-world/
SO, back to the present: – Perhaps the Brits can draw some hope from the opening of the country over the coming months? “Sarah Coles, personal finance analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “Half a million people came off furlough in March, as business owners prepared to throw open the doors of shops, beauty salons, gyms, restaurant patios and beer gardens across the country. People who are returning to work will breathe a huge sigh of relief that they still have something to go back to; and even those still stuck on furlough have hope.” However, I don’t think this will last: Furlough-figures-fall-by-half-a-million-as-the-economy-re-opens
BUT – the Brits are doing so well with Covid that they think it will be all over by 21st June. THINK AGAIN! A contract currently is out for tender for the employment of ‘Covid Marshals’. The government declares that a third wave is inevitable and that it will be the fault of children and those who refuse the experimental Covid-19 gene therapies. ‘Covid Marshals’ will be employed from the 1st July 2021 until the end of January 2022 at the earliest, to the tune of £3 million of tax-payers money. The latest evidence that things will not be returning to normal on the 21st June 2021 comes in the form of this contract which has been awarded to a single company, costing the British tax-payer £320 million. The contract has a start date of 1st April 2021 and is due to run until the 31st March 2022. It’s stated purpose? “The provision of Media buying services for COVID 19 campaigns.” And we know who is dipping into the government cash trough: https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/05/02/uk-gov-awards-320-million-tax-payer-funded-contract-for-covid-19-media-propaganda-campaign-which-runs-until-april-2022/
To end the week we had ‘The Queen’s Speech’ in the Lords. This is where our 95 year old monarch is trundled down to Westminster so she can tell all her subjects what her government is going to do in the coming parliamentary year. “This was the Queen’s first ceremonial public engagement since the death of Prince Philip, and she remains a class, deadpan act. It’s not everyone who could read out a list of Boris Johnson’s promises and give nothing away on the likelihood of at least half of them being broken. It took quite some doing not to even raise an eyebrow at some of the proposed legislation or at what was missing.
Still, at least the prime minister had done her a small favour by writing the shortest Queen’s speech since 2016, so she was all done and dusted in under nine minutes. Soon she would be back in the palace for a large pre-lunch sherry. She was going to need it. The MPs traipsed quickly back to the Commons, with Keir Starmer determinedly keeping at least a 2-metre gap behind the prime minister. Not so much out of social distance observance but more to avoid any chance of small talk with Boris. He was almost certainly going to have more than enough of the Prime Minister bigging up last week’s election results when the Commons reconvened for the debate on the Queen’s speech in the afternoon.” The MPs debate the proposals in the afternoon: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/may/11/the-queens-a-class-act
BREXIT: Washington is waiting for Boris Johnson to realise that he needs a constructive strategic partnership with his European neighbours. It is not unusual for disputes between neighbours to be petty, but small spats express major misunderstandings. So it is with Brexit. There are tensions wherever the boundaries of the UK meet the EU. And Boris sent gunboats to the Channel Islands! https://wwwView-on-foreign-policy-after-brexit-growing-pains But they are back in port now though after a short operation to frighten the French fishermen.
VACCINE ADVERSE REACTIONS: This week sees the 15th report for UK side effects and the figures keep growing, no sign of a slow down with 36+ million first doses including 19+ million second doses as reported by the BBC: https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/05/13/uk-government-release-15th-report-on-adverse-reactions-to-the-covid-vaccines/ AND this is horrible – warning – reading these events can be emotionally damaging: https://johnplatinumgoss.com/2021/05/03/more-vaccine-deaths-censored-by-social-media-as-well-as-mainstream/
AND – in America the segment below on the “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Carlson said the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows 3,362 Americans – or 30 people a day – died from the COVID vaccine between December 2020 and last month. “More people have died after getting the shot in four months during a single vaccination campaign than from all other vaccines combined over more than a decade and a half,” said Carlson: https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/tucker-carlson
