As far too many people get excited about the prospect of Theresa May & Co. negotiating with the EU to achieve Fake Brexit (i.e. continued compliance and subjection under Globalism with a priority on ensuring the survival of the EU), passing completely under the radar is a sinister Government plan to inculcate normalcy bias about the outcome; in other words to manage perception against expectation to mitigate the impact of disappointment and to stifle opposition. It’s all part of The Modern Industrial Strategy that has been touted by Theresa May as a means “to ensure every nation and area of the United Kingdom can make the most of the opportunities ahead”, but it looks like 1) a reinvigoration of David Cameron’s Big Society (the author’s criticism of which is to be read here), tweaked with Corporate intervention in communities for isolating people from information that threatens Globalism, 2) a doubling down on an insistence of the authoritative voice of the Establishment in media and in education, and 3) a strategy to hasten the onset of robotics and A.I. in the workplace as a development of the economic attack on Britons through displacement (with immigrants currently being deployed in that capacity). If the reader is sceptical, please see the seemingly leaked Government plans to wage a £60 million Public Relations war on “Breitbart and stuff like that, the conspiratorial media”, and the increasing efforts to make the public aware of the certainty of job-losses through “human superfluity” – as in the article here:
Please also notice that first article in the same series as this one – which can be found here – has since been vindicated by the revelation of the intention of Government ministers to pass a statutory instrument (that doesn’t require a vote on it), the Unified Patent Court Agreement, into law which will mean that the “standards for products and inventions are set in Europe not Britain” (from here).
As in the previous article, this one will analyse recent speeches made by Theresa May about Britain “leaving” the EU. These speeches show that May has correctly identified the negative impact of Globalism as being the cause of the EU Referendum result. The reader might have thought that it was EU membership that people didn’t like, and on the surface, that would be true. But the EU is the starting node of a centralised system of worldwide corporate-Government known as Globalism, which has the objective of destroying the middle class, national unity and identity in regions of the globe that before Political Correctness used to be known as the First World – and thus ridding itself of effective political opposition. As was pointed out in the first article, Theresa May used the word “globalisation” when she means “Globalism”. (Again, all the extracts that follow are from Theresa May’s speeches unless otherwise stated.)
Because talk of greater globalisation can make people fearful. For many, it means their jobs being outsourced and wages undercut. It means having to sit back as they watch their communities change around them.
And in their minds, it means watching as those who prosper seem to play by a different set of rules, while for many life remains a struggle as they get by, but don’t necessarily get on.
Theresa May says that she will make Globalism work for everyone. If we keep reading May’s speech, though, we begin to reconcile what is being proposed with what is already known: Globalism isn’t meant to work for everyone; it is wholly and entirely about preying on the mass of humanity.
And these tensions and differences are increasingly exposed and exploited through the expansion of new technologies and the growth of social media.
Here we are then, this is not about changing Globalism, but changing perception of it. Just look at the dishonesty of Theresa May. Exposing the injustices of Globalism is characterised by her as exploiting tensions. The former cannot be done without angering the people who suffer. The British Establishment has Apollo syndrome. It regrets that Daphne should turn into a tree to avoid being raped, and it certainly doesn’t expect her to assert her humanity and fight back.
But let’s just pretend that Theresa May is genuine, and wants to change the truth of the matter rather than perception of the truth. Let’s look at what can be treated as a defining statement about what is planned:
Because if you are someone who is just managing, just getting by, you don’t need a Government that will get out of the way. You need an active Government that will step up and champion the things that matter to you.
This is horrifying stuff. Government should certainly get out of way. Government should not be involved in any aspect of a free person’s life. It might be hard for a Briton to appreciate this idea, being coddled as they are from birth to grave – a case of not seeing the wood for the trees. Britain is a Marxist state, and it’s humorous to the Nth degree to see people campaigning against a socialist outcome which has already been implemented. The British Government has been “stepping up” for 60-plus years – governing for Globalist congruity. The decline in living standards and expectations will continue as it “steps up” anew.
But May continues…
I believe such a strategy – that addresses the long-standing and structural weaknesses in our economy – is essential if we are to promote the benefits of free markets and free trade as we wish.
A quick note; here she equates Globalism with free markets. The essence of Globalism is crony capitalism, where a person or a corporation, usually on its way to becoming an arm of Government itself, is favoured by legislation – that it has probably lobbied for. This is not the same as a free market, where everyone has a naturally equal chance of selling his wares. That aside, what are the weaknesses that are obstacles to promoting the “benefits” of Globalism?
As we continue to bring the deficit down, we will take a balanced approach by investing in our economic infrastructure – because it can transform the growth potential of our economy, and improve the quality of people’s lives across the whole country.
The national deficit is indeed decreasing – and you’ll probably see that your local council has sold off premises and property to make this happen. In other words, how much is being borrowed every year is decreasing because less is being borrowed to spend on the welfare state (the extent to which Government is involved in one’s life). This frees up borrowing to spend on “infrastructure”. Now, the naïve may think that May wants to attempt to generate tax revenue so that it can outstrip that which is borrowed (creating a surplus instead of a deficit), and debt can be paid down. But this would be very naïve. It follows that if Government can’t exert control through welfare, then it must do so through anything that replaces it. There will still be welfare, but its quality and quantity will degenerate even more. Welfare is crucial as a social control mechanism, and so can never be driven out like the social ill it really is. And the overall Globalist scheme continues; to swap real wealth out from the masses and replace it with something that has value only through corporate-Government fiat.
Our strategy is not about propping up failing industries or picking winners, but creating the conditions where winners can emerge and grow. It is about backing those winners all the way to encourage them to invest in the long-term future of Britain.
This is outright lies. Globalism is all about picking winners, and then propping them up when they are deemed too big to fail. Corporate giants don’t like new boys, and don’t like competition. The following are extracts taken from a Government press release entitled “PM unveils plans for a modern Industrial Strategy fit for Global Britain” which adds some depth to May’s outlining (it’s one of two press releases quoted in this article; the other is “Technical education at heart of modern Industrial Strategy”:
We must upgrade our standards of performance on digital, energy, transport, water and flood defence infrastructure, and better align central Government infrastructure investment with local growth priorities.
Delivering affordable energy and clean growth
We need to keep costs down for businesses, and secure the economic benefits of the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The proof that the Government is yanking everyone’s chain is in the claim that it will keep costs down as it continues to roll out renewable energy – which has long been established as being a scam; making people pay above the odds for energy is the whole point. But consider the statements under the umbrella heading “Upgrading Infrastructure”. The author might be missing something, but he would say that there isn’t much room for anything new in terms of physical infrastructure. A handful of companies already own the established transport, energy, water, and communications networks, and people just can’t go out and dig new tracts of network, no matter how entrepreneurial they are. Even new digital communications companies usually must deal with the previously State owned BT for access to physical cables. So, for the Government to invest in infrastructure, it must invest in corporations and companies that are already extant and massive. Not only that, if these organisations are not monopolising the infrastructure in certain regions, then they operate cartels with other operators. As a result, people in the UK pay far too much for their amenities, and for their communications; the infrastructure fails through lack of real competition and accountability. Who is really going to benefit when the Government rewards this with new shovels of tax payers’ money?
We will go further to reform our schools to ensure every child has the knowledge and the skills they need to thrive in post-Brexit Britain.
In its press briefings, the Government talks about “ensuring everyone has the basic skills needed in a modern economy”. The obvious riposte is to say that the UK has had 40 years of post-Grammar education, and the Government is still talking about skills shortages. There doesn’t seem to be any mention of Grammar schools where people can generally get a good education. Officially, supposedly, the Government is opposed to grammar education on grounds of Equality and Diversity. As always, underneath the Leftist exterior beats the corporate-monopolist motivation: the UK Government doesn’t want everyone who can to get a good education, because then everyone who can, will start to compete.
The plan seems to be to have technical colleges as an alternative to universities – rather like polytechnics then, the reader might think? Well no. This statement makes the intent clear (emphasis added): “building a new system of technical education to benefit the half of young people who do not go to university”.
This is what Theresa May says of it (as quoted in abovementioned press briefings):
Our action will help ensure young people develop the skills they need to do the high-paid, high-skilled jobs of the future. That means boosting technical education and ensuring we extend the same opportunity and respect we give university graduates to those people who pursue technical routes.
So, the people who can’t make the grade to go to university (and this is definitely easier than it used to be) go into technical college. The comparison one would like to make is, as mentioned, the old polytechnics, but this wouldn’t be fair. These institutions were for a vocational/academic mixture, and most who attended them were quite capable of going to university. In the end, technical institutes, polytechnics and universities offered much the same sort of thing. The Government proposal seems to be that it wants to put the people who don’t go university through technical college. And so maybe if we have to compare Theresa May’s Technical Colleges with a classification of educational establishment from the recent past, then they would surely be more like municipal Art Colleges. Doesn’t it just stink of keeping people off the unemployment statistics in the absence of heavy industry and skilled apprenticeships? Doesn’t it smack of tax-payer subsidised play-school for overgrown children who, in a proper country, would be in serious employment?
On the other hand, given that the Government is currently in the process of closing down technical colleges for post-school students, perhaps we should consider the promise of universal training to be another big lie. Greater Manchester University Technical College in Oldham is the seventh “university technical college (UTC)” to announce closure at the end of the 2017 academic year. The article reporting this implies that the college is somehow at fault and being punished for bad performance. This isn’t exactly correct. The author happens to know that a number of colleges in his region are going to be consolidated together, meaning towns suddenly being devoid of further and higher education institutions, and meaning that students will have to travel large distances to do a course they want – meaning that ultimately people are not going to be able to train in the way they would prefer. It appears to be part of a review by Government, which is discussed in this article on the Unison website (here). One suspects that actually the Oldham closure is part of this review.
Another clue about the real intention of Government is the press release statement that there would be “£170 million new Government funding for prestigious Institutes of Technology”.
This isn’t a lot of money, and one wonders if it’s enough to build some infrastructure in order for private companies to take it over. Moreover, the statement implies that there aren’t going to be many of these schools. Far from being widely available, Theresa May’s Technical Colleges are probably going to be farms for corporations. Having had that realisation, it is hard not to see the data fit in to an Agenda 21 Plannedopolis-type scheme for the future. The administrative, systems-implementing and political class goes to university. A button-pushing class to work the machines goes to technical school.
Of course, Theresa May frames the inevitable doom of communities to be “operated” for the good of the One-Percenter – as if they were plantations – amongst all the loving, benevolent things that she says she’s going to make Globalists do.
It means businesses paying their fair share of tax, recognising their obligations and duties to their employees and supply chains, and trading in the right way; companies genuinely investing in – and becoming part of – the communities and nations in which they operate, and abiding by the responsibilities that implies; and all of us taking steps towards addressing executive pay and accountability to shareholders.
Some people will read about level playing fields and believe Theresa May to be reasonable, and even worth a vote in an election. The author focuses on the bit about corporations becoming part of the communities in which they operate. To be fair, lots of people now appreciate the plan, excused by Governments because of faux concerns about sustainability, to deliberately inflict poverty on as many people as possible in the name of control. The UK Government is now taking some pretty skittish horses to the abattoir, so everything has got to be doubly appealing and super-duper future-tastic. So, social engineering and psychological conditioning will now have a name that conveys the loving intent of the benevolent Government: the Shared Society
The mission I have laid out for the Government I lead – to make Britain a country that works for everyone – goes further. It is to build something that I have called the shared society – one that doesn’t just value our individual rights but focuses rather more on the responsibilities we have to one another. That respects the bonds that people share – the bonds of family, community, citizenship and strong institutions.
And that recognises the obligations we have as citizens – obligations that make our society work.
It is these bonds and obligations that make our society strong and answer our basic human need for definition and identity.
And I am absolutely clear that it is the job of Government to encourage and nurture the relationships, networks and institutions that provide that definition, and to correct the injustice and unfairness that divides us wherever it is found.
Too often today, the responsibilities we have to one another have been forgotten as the cult of individualism has taken hold, and globalisation and the democratisation of communications has encouraged people to look beyond their own communities and immediate networks in the name of joining a broader global community.
Focus on this: it is the job of Government to interfere in the things that give people definition and identity. And if your definition and identity is a problem for the Government, then it’s the Government’s job to correct it. Already we are being shown what this means by the abovementioned plot to psychologically assault people who read Breitbart. And getting right down to the brass tacks, dear reader, is that the British Government sees opposition to it, as it carries out its nefarious and criminal activity, as “cult of individualism”. A cult of individualism. It’s High Orwellianism. Cultic behaviour is all to do with conforming, as zealously as possible, with gang prohibition and culture. If anything is a cult, then it’s the society that the British Government is desirous of – unquestioning and controlled in thought and action. Look at the way the British Establishment accuses its enemies of racism to keep its cult followers through shame of being remotely connected with the other side. What May is really talking about here is objection to the way that people have moved away from centralised control of information – so moving away from being in a cult, in fact – to using, and relying on, free forms that come in from outside. One immediately thinks of the Libertarian Movement that has mobilised on the internet, and real alternative nationwide networks of people to achieve the Brexit referendum result and the election of Trump. As we know from her 5th October 2016 Tory conference speech, May doesn’t like Libertarianism.
Time to reject the ideological templates provided by the socialist left and the libertarian right and to embrace a new centre ground in which Government steps up – and not back – to act on behalf of us all.
Forget left and right. Socialism and libertarianism are indeed opposites, but there isn’t any centre. That’s the big con. The “centre” is control of society for the State’s own purpose. The plan is, post-Brexit, to reassert centralised control through corporate-government “investment” in communities, and doubling down on engineering society so that Government can get on with the job of preying on the masses.
