~ THE OLD ROMAN policy of ‘Bread and Circuses‘ (food & fun, as mocked at by the poet Juvenal) worked pretty well at keeping the masses quiet. But what if…

…Whilst lined up for the dole, people started talking about politics, and public scandal? What if, during the intermissions at the games, the people asked awkward questions which the powers that be would rather not have asked?

That is where we’ve been for a while on the internet freedom issue. The entertainment/ learning/ fun hub has also been a dangerously effective way of speaking truth to power, fact-checking, criticizing our rulers, broaching forbidden topics, and getting the news and facts out there outside the usual machine for dispensing pablum with Prozac known as The Mass Media.

Online Freedom is under threat. Now. Here.

DGutaUTXoAAdbet

Now we come to it: what will the powers– the politician/ Google/ FaceBook Banking Consortium do when Bread & Circus no longer pacifies? Purge. Silence. Block. Bankrupt.

Individual have been getting blocked and banned on Facebook and YouTube; Google search algorithms are being hard-leftified; blogs are threatened and shut down; whole YouTube channels are being (a) de-monetized (no advertising money for the content producers), (b) kicked off the sidebar & ‘what’s new’ and ‘what’s popular’ lists; (c) categorized & hidden behind an “Offensive” listing; (d) Just shut down altogether. Plus, Patreon will arbitrarily deprive people of income, and people their freedom to donate and support those causes… thanks, CEO Jack Conte!

Shame If Anything Happened To It…

Not very long ago, a whole group of the most visited non-progressive Catholic FaceBook pages simply vanished one day. No warning, explanation, or apologies. The uproar ensued, and presto-bango-bingo they all reappeared!.. plus a lame ‘malfunction’ excuse. I consider this pre-purge testing: “What if we purge this stuff– what’s the reaction? Also, can we erase a category of pesky crap?”

Handcuffs on laptop keyboard

Over the past 2-3 months, YouTube has also hired certifiably rabid & totalitarian radical progressive watchdogs to ‘guide’ the Google sub-corporation (yes, the Monopoly is real) into calm all-is-happy waters. You know, where no upsetting stuff is online, or is de-monetized, hidden, or put behind special barriers for ‘controversial content’. No, not porn, or bloodthirsty Islamic propaganda, or actually objectionable content, but upsetting & incorrect opinions and thoughts.

Indeed, China, Turkey, and much of the world is already under strict controls— part of which were actually set up by Google and Western internet companies! Do not trust them.

If you’re not Social Justice Snowflake.. pro-Islam.. pro-radgay & pro-trans.. pro-ANTIFA.. pro-globalist.. anti-Trumper.. pro-climate emergency.. pro-political hamster cage– the usual crap– then, increasingly, The Google/ Twitter/ YouTube/ Blogging Platform Monster wants to kick you down & out. SkyNet is a progressive cry-bully: and it’s invading our lives & rights & freedoms.

Shut Up, Truth & Fact Mongers!

Just like the Human Rights Kangaroo Courts in Canada, the crucial fact is this: truth & freedom & reason & fair opinion is NOT A DEFENCE. Even The mighty Drudge Report has felt the chilling breezes, and Matt Drudge himself was warned that in case of a Clinton Presidential win in 2016, he had better go find himself another job.. likely just before he tragically killed himself tomorrow, out of the blue. Very tragic.

In this case, you can kinda sorta actually blame Donald Trump. He was not the chosen of the global or progressive or Dempublican American elites; he was a joke candidate; Queen Hillary should now be ruling, silencing, controlling, and putting an end to any difficult political and cultural and religious majorities interfering with The Process.

trump_win_4

But The Internets.. the lies.. the mocking.. the sick Hillary.. the actual story sneaking out from past the dino-media party.. the polls being set aside, instead of obeyed. Time will tell if the current American Devolution will succeed in destroying or impeaching the outspoken and clownish Donald Trump for crimes against the elite masterplan– but if the Google/ Twitter/ YouTube Machine has it’s way, the next attempted rebellion will not be seen on YouTube, discussed on Twitter, blogged about extensively, fact-checked, or otherwise allowed to interfere with The Plans.

In this brave new world, freely shared truth & freedom & reason & fair opinion will be forbidden, and is NOT A DEFENCE. Period.

The Ensilencing

What is most astonishing, of course, is that the progressive powers imagine the truth & freedom & faith genie can be shoved back in the bottle so easily. Time will tell if they can get most of the toothpaste back into the tube, or at least cap it, so they can shut off the flow, and try and silence the signal.

DSC_0082_153173

Yet the Social media masters are deadly serious. The enpurgening is now…. the most visible and noisy controversialists go first.

Speak, fight, protest, link, pass on the warning– or else get ready to live behind a Western version of the Western-assisted Great FireWall Of China.. except with nowhere outside get the rest of the story from. The backlash against Google, Twitter, FaceBook and the like may well doom many authoritarian efforts to crush internet freedom.. it is to be hoped. Lash back.

It is becoming clear what the soft-totalitarians in the West want. YouGoogTwit™ is not on our side; it is now being remodeled as the front-end of the Gentle Silencing Machine. The new mantras? “Bread and Circuses! Everybody Smile! Radical Left Opinions Are All True! All is well! Believe The Masters! Don’t Be A Negative Nancy! Nothing to see here! Be fed & amused & obedient, that is the highest good!”

Signs Of Hope?

The recent Google shooting-itself-in-the-foot firing of James Damore over a revisit of Mein Kampf over a diversity memo has revealed some of the ‘diverse’ names and faces behind the anonymous Google/ YouTube Cry-Bully Cadre: mostly  SJW women, who all think one way, on most topics, and think everyone else damn well should, too… led by a progressive male boss, Sundar Pichai. Diversity training uber alles! Worse? There are other thought-criminals working at Google!!

Goolag Bully-Boy & Current Cult-Leader Hates UnProgs!

“Diversity”? Goolag management didn’t just disagree with a scientifically sensible (here’s another take) pinion by an evil white male Google employee on men & women in STEM careers– they fired the guy, and tried to make him unemployable. Truth? DEFENESTRATE! Some lefty-media even called it a ‘screed’ and waved the ‘alt-right’ (i.e., non-progtard) flag over the controversy, because it broached forbidden and settled topics in the reality-lite Progressive undiverse.

Since reality is not a progressive strong-point, you generally just have to expose what they are up to, when (not if) they stumble and make a cruel stupid mess of things, and fall into the trap they placed for someone else. The lawyers will win in the end— but hopefully truth & freedom online gets some breathing-room despite YouGoogTwit™’s clumsy-stupid.

Finale, In Conclusions

Ultimately, God. Does he exist, or not; knowable, or not? Revealed once for all in Christ Jesus, or not? It has moral, legal, intellectual, and even online implications if “Yes”.

The pillars of the West– even those abstracted by the Left (“Judge not” or “love your neighbour” or equality)– are based on Greco-Roman Judaeo-Christianity thought, law, and faith. As these are attacked, the whole structure is weakened, not just the parts the revolutionaries want to wreck because Utopia.

The real issue is one of faith, hope, and love: do we still believe in truth, do we still have hope in God? Do we love ourselves and our neighbours enough to reject current versions of Bread & Circuses, and false peace when there is no peace? When we look into ourselves, is there any “There” there? Are we slaves in waiting, or glorious free citizens of heaven in pilgrimage here on earth, doing His will here as there?

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.” [Galatians 5:1]

“Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make ye free.” [John 8:32]

Come and get me, ya evil bastards.

Jesus The Unexpected

KeepTellingyourself1

EVER SINCE 2001, we have been surrounded by ‘The War On Terror™’. We hardly even notice it any more.

Going to the airport? You leave extra time for the intrusive searches of ‘security theatre’. Got internet-connected electronics or social media? You just know someone could be watching or listening or recording you. Heck, NSA (or the UK’s GCHQ) spyware might even be built into your game apps, like Angry Birds or Candy Crush. For your own good. Shrug.

What to do? The neo-Con Hawks tell us to bomb & war & nuke; moderates tell us to fight, but have a deadline; leftists tell us to surrender our culture and faith to Islam, to accept waves of ‘refugees’– and all sides tell us to surrender our freedom and rights for “Peace And Security™”.

Global-War-on-Terror-is-officially-permanent

I’m not for surrender, and will live, speak, and die– if need be– for the best of my civilization, and for my Christian faith. Not much for the Security State, or permanent “War On Terror’ Industrial War Inc.™, either.

Something else may well be happening in the Muslim world which will seriously aggravate Muslim and Secular Western regimes, since both love, above all else, to exercise power and control.

Who Is What-Now?

Muslim

Jesus Christ is appearing to Muslims in visions, dreams, and near-death experiences.

Yes, that Jesus. The one in the Creeds & the Bible. People in the Muslim world over the past 20 years and more are meeting Jesus and being changed and converted by vision & dreams of the Risen Lord.

maxresdefault

Along with this, millions more Muslims are being quietly converted to Christianity, at risk of social or family exclusion, in countries where Christianity is illegal, or a secret minority, where there may be few or no churches, or where ISIS and other Western-sponsored terror-groups are actively persecuting Christians (and other faith groups).

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of the leader of Hamas, has become a Christian, and despite all the death-threats, gone on to preach and talk and write about his total change of life.

Likewise in China, Christian churches are growing to such a point that within a few years, over 200 million Chinese may be Christians, despite government torture, persecution, and concentration camps.

Crucify Silence Him!

Jesus & Muslims.. this is huge, world-changing news. CNN? BBC? MSNBC? New York Times? Obama? Trudeau? Crickets.

Can’t be having any of that religious stuff interfere with our march to social justice, group-think soft fascism, and secular paradise. Don’t want God interfering with things which we have decided are our business, thank you very much, and please remember the legal separation of Heaven and Earth, God and Man, Believer & State.

empty_tomb21

Unlike Moses, Socrates, Buddha, Mohammed, Guru Nanak, or any other great philosopher or religious leader, Christians proclaim that Jesus rose again from the dead, and is alive forevermore. He’s the Lord of the dead, and the living, says the Bible.

If he really is appearing in visions and dreams to Muslim people, and calling them to salvation– and to forsake Islamic War Without End, terrorism, suicide bombing, and cultural and social stagnation– then here’s a real opportunity for whole peoples and lands to be made new.

On The Other Hand

In the West, we’re religiously nuts, really. Heck, our teflon Prime Minister Selfie can even go to hate-mosques and still somehow pretend to be a Catholic AND a secularist in good standing at the same time– and then to tell people to conform to his views, no matter their religious faith. As Rex Murphy pithily puts it– “In Justin Trudeau’s world, Christians need not apply .”

no2trudeau.jpg.size.xxlarge.letterbox

The risen Christ being a busybody doesn’t fit with the various master-plans of the global and political elites, let alone the U.S. State Department, and the CIA-NSA-FBI Industrial complex– but Jesus has always been troublesome like that. When he speaks, the foundations tremble, the graves are broken open, the dead arise, the blind can see, the possessed are set free, the sick are healed, and people are brought to salvation and new hope, and resurrection.

Renewing The World

This mysterious happening in the Muslim world may also undercut some of the racism behind the anti-refugee & anti-Muslim rhetoric found in social media: they’re not subhuman rag-heads, Mud-slimes, and machine-gunning or nuking them all is not the actual answer.

The conversion of a single individual heart begins the transformation of the world. It’s bigger than an earthquake, a volcanic explosion, a level 5 hurricane.

Muslims are already children of God; and if saved in Christ, they become brothers and sisters in him with Christians around the world, in whom there is no Jew or Gentile, Male or Female, Slave or Free– caught up in unconditional love. There’s the lasting foundation of true & new ‘humanity’, without political correctness, mob-rule, or group-think.

But it involves the living God Himself: and while we may love his gifts of life, and love, and the good things of this world, we’d rather do without the giver. Such a busy-body, minding all the business, and changing all the things.

And the truth is this: we– along with Muslims– need a spiritual and personal renewal, a religious rebirth, a renovation of our tired and stagnant and shallow governments and denominations, and their practical atheism and cold heartedness– through a love of the risen and living Jesus Christ.

~ DID YOU EVER KNOW? For those of you of a certain age, being told to finish your beets and asparagus and table-scraps because “there were starving kids in China” will ring a bell. I never knew what it meant, or why my mother said it, exactly.

This man-made famine was widely misunderstood at the time; in modern China it is glossed over as “the three years of natural disaster”; and in the Western history books it is all but forgotten, because Leftism & Marxism. Still, it’s a cultural artifact for people who were kids in the 1960s.

My smart-ass response at the time was: “Well OK, can we send this to them, then?”  The previous era of starving Chinese children was the mid-1930s, under Japanese misrule. The slightly later version changed the starving children to Africa (particularly Eastern Africa), in the great to-and-fro of the Cold War.

Dinner-table-1960s

The Horror: 1958-1963

Back to my era. Did you ever ask (or were you ever told, or did your parents even know) why in China– a net exporter of food– there were such conditions in the late 50s into the mid-60s? Probably not.

Communism. Mao Tse Tung wanted to hasten agricultural reform, and was greedy for hard currency from the Soviets, and so sold them most of the food China produced. He sold almost all Chinese crops, even if that meant the peasant farmers themselves had nothing left to eat. That, and crazy schemes like shutting down small farms, and making giant collective farms. Which didn’t work.

Mao Starved Them

Communism + lack of reality? = 70 MILLION direct & indirect Chinese deaths.

Mass starvation, eating grass and bark, cannibalism, and upwards of 60-70 million deaths ensued, because Communism can’t science good, and what’s a few millions dead for the progress of the Revolution, blah blah blah.

Truth is, there’s more than enough food in the world to prevent starvation, but as in 1930s Ukraine, Mao’s China or Ethiopia in the We Are The World 1980s, politics (especially progressive politics) are often found at the root of such crises. Entirely avoidable, predictable, and horrible.

Death by starvation– for ideological purposes– has proven quite convenient for human monsters of the 20th century. We’re only ever told half of the story, and well after the fact, by the useful idiots of the Western mass media, who served and still serve all too often as the willing mouthpieces of Lenin, Stalin, Che & Fidel, Mao, and their horrible policies and evil minions.

Read it, and weep: ‘Mao’s Great Famine‘. ~
