The Ship of Fools, Hieronymous Bosch
Not currently sailing, I'm afraid.
There is a trend among commenters, and it extends as far upwards as respected dissident writers, YouTube citizen journalists, and big-name Right-wing TV pundits. I have written on it many times, and Old Traumavillians will recognise the drum beat.
There is, or appears to be, an overwhelming belief among dissident Right journalists and commentators that the current disastrous course being steered by the elites is somehow due to their incompetence, reluctance to discuss certain issues, and even a type of insanity.
When, asks the dissident Right, will governments wake up?
The terrifying answer is that they have been wide awake for some time. It is you who sleep.
Do you honestly believe that the elite governmental echelons of the Western countries, such as they now are in terms of loss of sovereignty, are somehow blundering around in the fog, unaware of the consequences of their actions, media commentary, and ultimately legislation? If so, I imagine you also believe that wrestling is real.
The British government spends an ever-increasing amount each year on people whose area of expertise is manipulating the real world until you believe about it that which they are being paid to have you believe. These people, all paid for by tax money in total opposition not to the law but to the spirit of the law, control the perceptions of many, many people. They come from the dark part of culture – although it sells itself as a tonic – comprising PR, advertising, management consultancy – the biggest scam, the greatest non-job in history – and, of course, the good ole reliable media. They are liars and wrigglers. They are dedicated to keeping you in Plato’s cave. They are the enemy. And they are not good people.
I have written this so many times I may have it inscribed on an attractive and sturdy arch above the entrance to Traumaville;
Western government policy is not accidental, nor is it insane. It is quite deliberate and it is what Socialist sanity looks like.
Mass immigration, transgenderism, university safe spaces, affirmative action, anti-Trumpism, control of language, homosexuality, militant feminism, ‘racism’, Islam, Islamophobia, celebrity culture, television, Antifa, anti-white propaganda, anti-male propaganda, hate-speech laws, the Malicious Communications Act and its cousin shariah. The list is growing. Had you noticed?
These are all jigsaw-puzzle pieces on a surface whose picture will not please when those pieces are all in place. The picture will be of a great and dark ship, flying a flag far more sinister than the Jolly Roger. In the midst of a desperate storm, all hands are frantically on deck, trying to strike a course. But the course they have been told to steer is towards the rocks, not away from them.
And there are only so many lifeboats.
