March into tyranny

Those of us old enough to remember the Cold War between Western powers and the Soviet Union were aware of the totalitarian nature of the Soviet Russia and its satellites.

The Wall Street backed Bolshevik revolution, like the French revolution before it, was manipulated to bring down the monarchy and the established order. It quickly morphed into a state of terror in which millions were either murdered or sent off to the Gulag (concentration camps). Fear ruled. Lenin and his pupil Stalin brooked no dissent; those capable of independent thought were eradicated, exiled or imprisoned. To get a sense of the origins of Marxism and the conquering of Russia, an essential read is Under the Sign of the Scorpion by Jüri Lina.

In the post-war period, the divide between East and West overshadowed daily life with the constant threat of nuclear confrontation; propaganda on both sides bred distrust and hate between the peoples. One can only imagine what it was like to live under the constant watch of the KGB and other Soviet intelligence services but it was clearly frightening, oppressive and debilitating.

Following the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union, there was a brief period of optimism but that was soon shattered, mainly by 9/11 although the Balkanisation of Yugoslavia gave a foretaste of what was in prospect. Since 9/11, we've been shepherded into a state of fear and submission to the surveillance state; total capitulation of US, UK and European populations is almost complete as ever more draconian legislation is introduced.

There are some well known stages that mark the path towards totalitarianism – and one indicator that we are strolling down this dangerous path is the UK government’s Investigatory Powers Act.

At present, there are plenty of thinking people in the UK, US and Europe who are resisting but how long is it before we descend into the hell experienced by Russians at the hands of the Cheka and the Bolsheviks. Those who think are obstacles to the Structural Elite's plans for a New World Order.

Many have already paid the ultimate price (unnoticed by the majority of the "sheep"); how long before killing becomes the default response to resistance?
