Let The Gods Of The Copybook Headings Limp Up To Explain It Once More

As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

Rudyard Kipling, Gods of the Copybook Headings

Earlier this month C.J. Hopkins followed up an article he’d posted on Consent Factory, Inc. with a Facebook post of a photo by Gunnar Kaiser of the Dusseldorf Tower tricked out with the catchy propaganda slogan Impfen = Freiheit (Vaccination = Freedom). He attached a pithy 7 word commentary: “not quite Arbeit Macht Frei” but close enough.”

The gods of the marketplace were angered. How dare a conspiracy monger conjure up an allusion to Nazis in connection with their plan to vaccinate the world against the evil Covid!?

Arbeit Macht Frei by Joe Gledhill | Black & White Magazine | For Collectors  of Fine PhotographyThe infamous entrance to Auschwitz: ARBEIT MACHT FREI – work makes you free…(and war is peace, ignorance is strength, freedom is slavery)

Retaliation for reposting this unacceptable innuendo was immediate and censorious: the accounts of the violators spreading this heresy were disabled for various amounts of time, presumably based on their previous record of Facebook terrorism. Thus we bend, willingly or not, to the Gods of the Market Place, the New World Order Global Capitalists who no longer need pretend they tolerate dissent of any kind. You will find that  CJ Hopkins laid the whole thing out fairly well:

So, we’re almost a year into the “New Normal” (a/k/a “pathologized totalitarianism”) and things are still looking … well, pretty totalitarian.

Most of Western Europe is still in “lockdown,” or “under curfew,” or in some other state of “health emergency.” Police are fining and arresting people for “being outdoors without a valid reason.” Protest is still banned. Dissent is still censored. The official propaganda is relentless. Governments are ruling by edict, subjecting people to an ever-changing series of increasingly absurd restrictions of the most fundamental aspects of everyday life.

And now, the campaign to “vaccinate” the entirety of humanity against a virus that causes mild to moderate flu-like symptoms or, more commonly, no symptoms at all, in over 95% of those infected, and that over 99% of the infected survive (and that has no real effect on age-adjusted death rates, and the mortality profile of which is more or less identical to the normal mortality profile) is being waged with literally religious fervor.

He tracks the beginning:

Phase 1 was pretty much classic “shock and awe.” An “apocalyptic virus” was “discovered.” A global “state of emergency” was declared. Constitutional rights were cancelled. Soldiers, police, surveillance cameras, military drones, and robot dogs were deployed to implement the worldwide police state. The masses were bombarded with official propaganda, photos of people dropping dead in the street, unconscious patients dying in agony, bodies being stuffed into makeshift morgue trucks, hospital ships, ICU horror stories, projections of hundreds of millions of deaths, terror-inducing Orwellian slogans, sentimental “war effort” billboards, and so on. The full force of the most formidable Goebbelsian propaganda machine in history was unleashed on the public all at once.

the middling:

But the “shock and awe” phase can’t go on forever, nor is it ever intended to. Its purpose is (a) to terrorize the targeted masses into a state of submission, (b) to irreversibly destabilize their society, so that it can be radically “restructured,” and (c) to convincingly demonstrate an overwhelming superiority of force, so that resistance is rendered inconceivable. This shock and awe (or “rapid dominance”) tactic has been deployed by empires, and aspiring empires, throughout the course of military history. It has just been deployed by GloboCap against … well, against the entire world.

and the endgame of sorts:

The shape of Phase 2 is not entirely clear yet, but one can make a few logical assumptions. Typically, this is the phase in which the conquering force (in this case, GloboCap) restores “normality” (i.e., a “new normality”) to the society it has just destabilized and terrorized. It installs a new occupation-friendly government, restarts the economy, and otherwise begins the gradual transition from martial law to something resembling “normal” everyday life. It hands out candy bars to kids, financial aid to businesses, power to generals and police, and “freedom” to the shell-shocked public.

Fear not good people, our short term prospects look quite bleak but in the long run the Gods of the Copybook Headings always prevail. Because, yes, mankind really is that predictable; if only we would learn to do learning.  

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins When  all men are

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.
