Another “I told you so”

That internet, the only democratic and free institution we have has been, and still is, under attack shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The Orwellian surveillance society is being implemented all over the world because if there is one thing politicians can agree upon, no matter what political party, it is the need to control information. How else can they control what we see, hear and read and consequently what we believe in and what we vote for?

In several articles on this blog I’ve pointed out that what we have seen so far is only the beginning. This exponential increase of internetfascism is directly proportional to “normal” laws and what is generally considered to be politically correct with an extra twist/plus added to the equation.

The extra ‘twist/plus’ comes from politicians having a different reason to impose the control grid - different to why they normally do things.

Normally they use laws or suggestions of new laws in order to maximize the number of votes and in this sense their reasoning isn’t automatically malevolent, only the consequence is.

However, when we look at Internet this isn't always true.

Laws, control-grids and roaming government super computers that keep tabs on the populace isn’t really about maximizing votes, albeit they do try to make it sound like it chasing after pedophiles, terrorists or whatnot. No, the main reason in this case is about control for the reason of control. They seek power for no other reason than the power itself.

This isn’t always deliberately planned, but every politician out there knows, at least subconsciously, that free and abundant flow of information is the greatest threat those in power have ever known.

And I don’t necessarily mean the big stuff; those tend to be revealed sooner or later. If they start a war on faulty grounds, accuse Jews of being malevolent greedy thieves that belong in ashtrays or if they make up stories about manmade global warming – those statements will, normally, be exposed. It may take time since those in power also control media or indoctrinate people to believe in the lies, but that’s all they may be able to do, buy time.

However, the smaller stuff; who’s taking bribes, who’s gay, which politician is unfaithful and similar have rarely been outed. You might think so because those stories do exist, but as anyone with any intellect knows such stories are only the tiny tip of a very huge ice-berg.

And even those that do get outed often get forgiveness through time. People tend to forget. And I don’t mean neo-Nazis worshiping Der Führer or communists revering Stalin. Just look at the murdering four-winged quagmire that was Ted “Chappaquiddick” Kennedy or the current leader of the Swedish Social Democrats. Politicians could, before internet, literarily get away with murder.

Today the tiniest mistake, one misguided sentence or any form of transgression can, and often will, be put out there for everyone to see, read and hear about. And this almost immediately. Worse still, the ones spreading such information cannot be controlled and anyone can be doing the spreading.

Politicians can buy every journalist, own every paper and have a total lock-down of society and still information will get out, be spread around and be commented on by millions of people all across the globe. They cannot threat, bribe, buy or control every grandma, student or organization with a computer.

This holds true even if (“WHEN”) their wet dream of an authoritarian controlled internet is imposed. There will always be renegades and contrary to what was before information doesn’t take months or even years to reach people, today it hardly take seconds.

So what to do?

They work in three ways to oppose this.

1. Make up stories about internet and scare people.
To scare people is one of the most effective ways to control the very same people. If we are afraid of a communist invasion, Muslims, terrorists or pedophiles we are far more likely to listen to those in power. They are there to protect and serve us, right? So who else should we turn to when one internet-based Muslimcommunistterrorist tries to rape our kids?

2. Make themselves out to be defenders of the very thing they hate so much.
This is also a very common thing for those in power to do. When we’re talking internet they say they want to protect the free word, help us get internet access, give free broadband to everyone and the only exception to this rule (se the number 1 above) is there to protect us and protect the free word.

3. Make every adversary into a suspect/criminal
Everyone against the control-grid will of course be pro-pedophilia. They will love terrorism. They are anarchists. They are thieves that only want free movies. They are all file-sharing youngsters with tin-foil hats. And so on. Sometimes those in power will take it one step further and not only claim certain things, but actually frame people for crimes they didn’t commit. I’ve said many times that it’s just a matter of time before famous hackers are outed as pedophiles; a spokesperson of Piratebay gets convicted of rape or any other number of made-ups to throw a shimmer of suspicion and darkness over all who oppose the power apparatus.

And lord and behold… the 39-year-old Australian spokesman of the whistleblower website Wikileaks is now under suspicion of rape. What are the odds eh?

I’m not saying he’s innocent, he may be guilty, but looking over the case so far it seems unlikely. But that’s secondary for those in power, and secondary to what I am talking about. You see our minds work in such a way that in a few months from now we will only remember “Wikileaks-spokesperson-rape”, and that’s it. Then there will be another case, and then another. Maybe a main contributor to Wikileaks is Muslim. Maybe Piratebay have been used, once, by a known terrorist. Maybe three pedophiles in London played cards with a sister to a niece to Wikileaks founder. You never know…

This is how the game is played and the further down this dark fascist abyss we go the more such stories will emerge. And if you don’t believe me, keep watching the news. I promise you all that stories like the ones mentioned will pop up ever more frequently as we close in on the biggest and worst economic crash in human history.
