Huxley Warned Us: Part 5

Please see the intro from Part 1 if you haven't already.

Aldous Huxley, 1958:

"No people that passes abruptly from a state of subservience under the rule of a despot to the completely unfamiliar state of political independence can be said to have a fair chance of making democratic institutions work. Again, no people in a precarious economic condition has a fair chance of being able to govern itself democratically. [true freedom] flourishes in an atmosphere of prosperity and declines as declining prosperity makes it necessary for the government to intervene ever more frequently and drastically in the affairs of its subjects. Overpopulation and over-organization are two conditions which, as I have already pointed out, deprive a society of a fair chance of making democratic institutions work effectively. We see, then, that there are certain historical, economic, demographic and technological conditions which make it very hard for Jefferson's rational animals, endowed by nature with inalienable rights and an innate sense of justice, to exercise their reason, claim their rights and act justly within a democratically organized society. We in the West have been supremely fortunate in having been given our fair chance of making the great experiment in self-government. Unfortunately it now looks as though, owing to recent changes in our circumstances, this infinitely precious fair chance were being, little by little, taken away from us. And this, of course, is not the whole story. These blind impersonal forces are not the only enemies of individual liberty and democratic institutions. There are also forces of another, less abstract character, forces that can be deliberately used by power-seeking individuals whose aim is to establish partial or complete control over their fellows. Fifty years ago, when I was a boy, it seemed completely self-evident that the bad old days were over, that torture and massacre, slavery, and the persecution of heretics, were things of the past. Among people who wore top hats, traveled in trains, and took a bath every morning such horrors were simply out of the question. After all we were living in the twentieth century. A few years later these people who took daily baths and went to church in top hats were committing atrocities on a scale undreamed of by the benighted Africans and Asiatics. In the light of recent history it would be foolish to suppose that this sort of thing cannot happen again. It can and, no doubt, it will. But in the immediate future there is some reason to believe that the punitive methods of I984 will give place to the reinforcements and manipulations of Brave New World."

Huxley initially points out that democracy as it once was, in the long golden period following Independence in 1776, delivered the goods. The monolithic tenants of the Constitution had only recently been formulated and were at that time entirely safe from the kind of revisions and attacks from Jewish shyster lawyers for whom the sight of a successful, prosperous and peaceful country was to become simply unacceptable.

Hard working European people, their strong, principled leaders and 24 karat gold governance based on openness, integrity, free speech, individual liberty and carefully-drafted legal framework guaranteed the stunning success of young America. It swiftly rose to become the world's richest and most powerful country thanks entirely to the vision of the founding fathers and the hard work, honesty and enterprise of the northern European settlers who built a paradise on earth the like of which the world had never before seen.

Obviously, we all know what has happened since and who exactly it is that is responsible for our collective demise. Huxley in his day correctly predicted that the age of the 'social engineer' was about to commence. Out of the two great dystopian paths, it was more likely that in the drive to gain total control of the masses, the forces of darkness would opt for subtle mind-manipulation rather than outright physical brutality. And for many decades, this was indeed the way of things.

However, whilst social engineering (such as political-correctness and massive immigration, the encouragement of inter-racial breeding and the destruction of the family unit (and through this, society as a whole) have been the core techniques for the implementation of these changes, we have lately seen very much more ruthless methods coming into play which if permitted to continue, will eventually see the infinitely more menacing methodology of Nineteen Eighty-Four coming to fruition.

In fact we have already seen Orwellian developments growing at a pace - since Washington's NeoConmen took the helm 8 years ago. Extraordinary rendition, torture, pre-empitive strikes, the silencing of dissenting voices, the massive increase in the prison population, the use of agencies like the ATF and their sibling clone agencies to act as stormtroopers against America's own citizens. The entire process is now taking on a far more baleful dimension. Legislation is already on the shelf which would - at a stroke - turn America into a clone of 1930s Stalinist Russia. And all that is required is one single precipitating event to bring this about...

We will not have long to wait, either. The trigger might be a genuine external threat, it may be another false flag operation, or it may come from America's repeated provocation of Russia. Either which way, when it happens (and it WILL - and soon) we will have our remaining (already weakened) rights whisked away in the blink of an eye. What happens next will not be pretty. Untold thousands of good men will die and our lives will never be the same again. Our freedoms will be history - at least for a while - and if we do not prevail, our children and their children will be slaves in perpetuity.

But you know what? Maybe we deserve such a future, for we did NOTHING to nip this situation in the bud when the possibility to seize our country back without bloodshed was within our grasp. Now it's probably too late, without considerable loss of life, to do so. Our collective inaction means that when the day of reckoning comes, we'll have a FAR higher price to pay because we didn't act at the outset. it all points to an unavoidable blood bath in which very many of us will perish. Such is the price of early inaction.
