The fascist mediocrity

The world isn’t only moving towards a fascist and totalitarian structure where the power and money is allocated in fewer hands and where governments sleep with banksters. We are not only conforming countries into a mainstream river wherein soon a world currency and possible a world government will come into shape. We are also making people more conventional. In essence, the world is getting boring, but in a fun way since people dies on the road.

Media, our creepy surveillance society and mainstream pundits are thrusting conformity into our lives in a way that makes everything so tediously boring. Just think about it for a moment.

Anyone criticizing what goes on is considered to be radical fringe individual or, my favorite, a racist. The only difference between organizations and political parties these days is how politically correct they are. If they happen to be a bit less PC, they get attacked by media and the rest of the bunch until they conform to the conventional opinion. Everyone must think of the environment, have enough females and black people in high positions and argue for equality. Well, not the socialistic full-on equality, we need some form of market economy at the same time, so a mish mash of center politics are formed around a mixture of socialism, corporatism and political correctness that pretty much everyone follow as the mainstream God.

Get in line, conform, sit straight up and listen to what the great leaders tell you.

This way of forming useless drones starts early on. In school we are taught that it’s good to follow the rules, it’s good to be as everyone else and how great it is to help others to be as mediocre as you are. Throughout our lives things that is fun, gives you pleasure or helps you feel good about yourself is banned, outlawed or highly restricted. Get out of line and you are a deviant pervert, a drug addict that is dangerous for others or just a crazy person in one way or the other. Video games, movies and even papers come with age-restrictions. Some of those completely harmless things are totally banned such as playing games for money. And everything that may be remotely unsafe i.e. you can hurt a toe, is outlawed. Examples of this are boxing, cannabis, driving without a seat-belt and walking against a red light. Some countries have even outlawed suicide. Imagine that. “Oh, you didn’t die from that jump, sorry, but we need to lock you up now. You can try again in a year from now when we let you out”.

This is also the way they are selling the concept of mass-control and total surveillance of people who own computers. One don’t need to have tin-foil hat on to feel very uneasy about the 1984-society most countries are building right now. Worse still is that this hinder the technology and inventions and new companies that otherwise would have started. “We need to protect you” they say with a smug smile while we have no way of knowing whether we were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police is plugged in on any individual wire is guesswork. No matter how they sell it, we now haft to live with the assumption that every sound we make, every site we visit is being watched, controlled and that every movement can be scrutinized. It doesn’t matter how many courts or how many assurances they give us, the possibility exists, and sooner or later they will use it.

The people that deviate from this decree of middle-of-the-road living are described with sentences like “He goes his own way” or something like “She thinks she is something more than the rest of us”.

It’s all designed to push us into conformity.

To social democrats, liberals and many other groups fighting over the mainstream vein this is probably great news - they have most of the people and most of the institutions right where they want them, but the ones that really should be jumping with joy are the fascists. Fascism is pretty much just this, a general conformity around a version of center politics with a large portion of society socialized and a kept illusion of continued competition and market economy while big business, government and the elitists rule with impunity. With the current laws comes to Internet there is really only the central figures of elitism among the elitists that is missing, a leader to conform the last pieces of our lives into a true totalitarian home of madness.

Some might argue I take this analysis too far, but have I really? Take a look around. Anyone true to themselves and the facts will draw the same conclusions.

The main problem with this isn’t really the conformity or how controlled we are, rather its how society treat those that don’t conform. If it was only bullying or condescending sentences thrown at such individuals, it wouldn’t be so bad, but things have gone way beyond that. In fact people die each year because of these written or unwritten rules. People who use recreational drugs, refuse conscription or don’t want to pay taxes get locked up or killed each year. If you want to make your own beer, build your own sort of car, start broadcasting radio or pretty much anything else, you need permission that is not always granted and if you refuse to follow such ruling, the thought police will come and shut you down, if you resists, you go to jail or get killed.

And everyone is following this unadventurous and mind-numbing orthodoxy. Take a look at the news as example. How far apart are the political views, the way of reporting or the content of the news? Not that much. Mostly you need to really stretch the imagination to find any kind dissimilarity. And since you can hardly do anything without breaking a law, we are very well kept. Like puppy dogs we lick the hands of our masters, get feed by them and sometimes they spank us when we’ve been bad.

The really fun part of this is that most of you love it. You want to be kept, you love being mistreated, lied to and another law is just another reason for you to be a good little citizen. No wonder people like Hitler and Mao didn’t have any problem finding loyal disciples. If you ever want to find out why the German people allowed the holocaust, why hundreds of millions are starving in the world or how Pol Pot could murder ¼ of the population, you need only to look in a mirror.
