In the now-famous speech by V in the film ‘V for Vendetta’, these things were what he said were used to coerce voters into voting for the dictatorship.
Look at our leaders. Cameron is once more surfing in Cornwall and Clegg is cooking up a stew in India. Yet we have ebola being flown into the US, Spain and the UK. We have British jihadis beheading American reporters in Iraq. Full-on war all over the Middle East caused, almost entirely, by Western government meddling. A UN conference coming up in Cardiff (fortunately after I’ve gone back to Scotland) which has resulted in the construction of a barrier to rival the one Israel built around Gaza, or the Communists built around East Berlin. Scotland’s very own chubby version of Windy Miller wants Scotland to be independent and, once he runs out of hot air to power his windmills, as invisible at night as North Korea.
A widespread outbreak of Ebola in the UK would be difficult to do, but there’s no need. Remember necrotising fasciitis, the flesh-eating bug? Everyone was terrified they would dissolve away in a matter of hours. There were eight cases in one year at the peak. Eight.
You do not need to engineer a massive outbreak. You need only have one case in the UK, one person to actually catch it here, and there will be panic. Today, a plane that landed in Aberdeen was quarantined because a 10-year-old girl was sick on the flight. Not an uncommon thing. Airlines provide bags for the purpose. However, she came from Nairobi so it was a full hazmat lockdown while she was checked. That’s not all that unreasonable really but if you had asked the people outside the plane, I’ll bet a fair number of them would have supported the idea of torching the whole lot, pilot and passengers included, rather than take the chance. Fear and rationality don’t work well together.
If there is one home-caught case of ebola in the UK, the next suspected case on a plane will see a mob with pitchforks and flaming torches.
There is strife and turmoil and disaster everywhere and the potential for it to get much worse but it doesn’t really have to. It only needs to look as if it is going to. We now have senior politicians stating – stating, not theorising – that they expect an attack from Islamoloonies any day now. A big, spectacular attack, as they put it. People are terrified.
Look again at what our leaders are doing now. They don’t appear to be terrified, do they? They don’t seem bothered in the least. Worldwide catastrophe is not worth interrupting a holiday for. Why are they so untroubled? Could it be because everything is proceeding exactly as planned?
The seeds of ebola are planted in the US, UK and Spain. It does not have to be an outbreak. One case, caught from those flown home, will do. Imagine what happens once ebola is out of the box. Imagine what happens when you are on a bus or a train and you sneeze…
The terrorists don’t need to be real. You don’t even need a false-flag operation any more. Any accidental gas explosion, any motorway pile-up, anything at all, all you need do is say you are ‘investigating whether terrorism was involved’ and that is what will stick in the drone mind. Three nuts from Cardiff went off to get themselves killed in Iraq and look at the speculation about the enormous jihadi terror cell that is supposed to now exist in Cardiff. Where the UN are about to have a meeting. If they really believed in this evil genius in Cardiff, don’t you think they’d be having that meeting somewhere else? They have most of the world to choose from. Or maybe there is to be an attack, one which will fail but which will look convincing. We shall see.
If Cameron was really serious about his wars all over the world fighting terrorists, drug dealers, fat people, drinkers, smokers, climate heretics and people who pass the port to the right, why is he reducing the British military and why is he so totally unconcerned about current events?
War. Terror. Disease… Fear. Those who live in fear do not reason. They do not calculate. They do not consider outcomes or consequences. They want only one thing. A release from fear. They want it now. Right now. At any price.
Only later do they find that their relase from fear brings no more than a different kind of fear. And then it’s too late.
