Will future generations look back on the present times and recognize that this current era was a key transitory phase in the History of so-called "civilized society?"
Whatever the future generations think about our current experience, it's going to be whatever the ruling technocratic authoritarian elite want them to think.
I've come to the conclusion that we are currently living through a transitory stage.
It will have an official sounding title in the annals of politically correct history, like THE FALL OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA'S EMPIRE.
I'm sure most future proles will believe whatever the Ministry of Truth tells them happened in this anachronistic age of "Democracy."
The WAR ON TERROR will have been "won."
They will no longer hate us for our freedom, because we will not be free.
If there is one thing the future citizenry of the Brave New World Order will know, it's that the inherent instability of this age required the TOTAL SURVEILLANCE STATE and COMPLETE POPULATION CONTROL. You know, the one that is currently under construction...
...and nearing completion.
My conclusion is that we are at the end phase of the dystopia Huxley described in Brave New World and transitioning to the world Orwell described in 1984.
Orwell's foretelling of the age of Big Brother's totalitarian boot stamping on the face of humanity forever was only off by about 30 years, give or take a decade.
Make no mistake....some event or event is coming soon to give the President (whoever he or she is) the excuse to declare Martial Law. Whether it's a manufactured "false flag" like 9112k1 or a naturally occurring catastrophe, those who are preparing for the coming new age will surely follow the "rules for radicals" and let no good crisis go to waste.
When they are ready, all the Executive Orders that have been signed into extra-Constitutional law by Presidential pawns and puppets for the past several decades will kick in. Our current epoch of idiocracy, defined by the ubiquity of soma-addled indulgences in an endless variations of technologically advanced bread and circus distractions, will be over, just like that.
The comfortable part of our hidden-in-plain-sight enslavement will come to an end.
Illegal Immigration will no longer be a problem.
Big Brother will be more concerned with illegal emigration.
Blogs like this will get disappeared.
If you think I write that because I've got some inflated sense of self-importance, pardon me, but you misread my sentiment.
I'm merely extrapolating from Orwell's description of our pending future: In the coming age of total surveillance, any expressed idea, observation or opinion that doesn't adhere to the party line, will be censored and/or punished.
They might even send those of us who attempt to write subversive truths anonymously on teh interwebz for an all-expense-paid camping trip, courtesy of the nearest regional Federal Emergency Management Agency resort.
The only thing we can really be sure of, is that change is coming, and it is coming soon.
You may not believe it, but the Federal Government sure does:
While the majority of Americans are oblivious to the warning signs around them, recent actions taken by our government and the governments of other industrialized nations suggest The Powers That Be know very well where we’re headed. They are and have been taking steps for quite some time to prepare for what is coming next.
- What is the purpose of the National Defense Authorization act unless they plan on indefinitely detaining American citizens without charge or trial?
- Why does the President of the United States (and his proxies) have the ability order the assassination or execution of an American citizen, again without trial, charge or reason?
- For what reason does President Obama’s ‘Doomsday’ executive order (National Defense Resources Preparedness) allow the seizure of food, land, energy resources and skilled laborers?
- Why is the Pentagon actively war-gaming economic collapse scenarios and the civil unrest that would follow such an event?
- With roughly 1 million active law enforcement officers in the United States, why is the US military training tens of thousands of personnel for domestic urban response, riot control and mass detentions?
- For what purpose do we require some 30,000 armed surveillance drones over American cities?
- Why has the Department of Homeland Security acquired in excess of 140 million emergency rations, over 450 million rounds of ammunition, bullet resistant checkpoint booths, and expedited the regionalization of supplies?
Why, this stuff sounds positively crazy, no?
As I've written both here and elsewhere in the past, I've seen with my own two eyes, a training area built to resemble a typical American suburban neighborhood, in the middle of the mountainous rainforests of a military training area here in Hawaii that I used to regularly go hunting at, until the security got beefed up on all the access roads. It's been about 2 years since I've seen the training area. I know what I saw.
I've talked to National Guardsmen and Police Officers who have undergone training at similar training grounds.
I've heard them express doubts and reservations about the kind of training they've been taking part in for the past 5 years or so.
One high-ranking police officer I know well, has attended a regional law enforcement conference a couple of years ago, for which the entire topic was civil unrest and the implementation of martial law, and the role Honolulu Police Department will play in cooperation with Federal Agencies like FEMA, DHS, etc. in suppressing Hawaii's populace; not if, but when it becomes necessary.
That was precisely the point that bothered him so much.
What bothered him the most was that the entire conference treated the topic as if it were a done deal. They did not even bother to present a half-assed cover story of "preparing for a worst case scenario" and "in the unlikely event" disclaimers as they conducted the seminars and discussion panels.
Sounds to me like the organizations that deal with the local law enforcement agencies by region, are using the Delphi Technique to condition the officers to internalize the idea of the inevitability of the collapse of civil society, and that suppression and oppression of the masses will not only be their job, but their patriotic duty.
As blogger Bill Powell states in the byline for his new joint: The Apocalypse Cometh:
You Are Not Going to Like the Future
No, I don't believe we will.
If I must live in a dystopia socially engineered and constructed to mislead the masses into living artificial and unnatural lives, I'd prefer the comforts of the Soma and Circuses of Huxley's version versus the paranoid, inhuman and inhumane Surveillance State of Orwell.
It's not like we're getting a real say in the matter.
Enjoy the decline...at home or poolside.
There may come a time soon for which even the simple pleasures of life are no longer allowed or logistically possible (your regions FEMA camp(s) may or may not have a pool).
