In the 21st century, surveillance is ubiquitous. Our phones, computers, TVs, cars, and many other devices are all recording data on everything we do. The age of big data is the age of big brother-on-steroids, with this juiced-up environment providing fertile ground for a global, technocratic superstate to be built upon, where every aspect of your life is controlled by experts. Covid-19 is just the warm up. The real great game is just beginning – the game for control over your body and your mind.

Despite the level of surveillance today already being 19842, special interests want to take surveillance to a whole other dystopian level: devices inside your body. To understand the internet of bodies, it is best to think of your favourite dystopian sci-fi film and multiply it by 10, and you will get close to the level of intrusion that the internet of bodies will bring, if you let it. However, as with many other things that have horrific implications for society, the internet of bodies will be sold in a trendy, attractive, and scientific manner.

Put simply, the internet of bodies is the collection of physical data by devices connected to the internet that are swallowed, implanted, or worn. For example, there are now pills available that have an electronic sensor in them that tells your doctor whether you have taken your medication or not. Another example is patented wristband technology owned by Amazon, where the hand movements of workers and their locations could be tracked. If the wristband senses a drop in productivity, it would pulse to nudge the worker to speed up. Sounds hellish, right?

Zlatan Ibrahimović is Right! Celebrities Shouldn’t Constantly Talk About Politics – Lebron v Zlatan - Zlatan Ibrahimović, the legendary Swedish football (or soccer) player, has been in the headlines recently after criticizing LeBron James for getting involved in politics.

Zlatan, who has played for Manchester United, Barcelona, La Galaxy, both Milan clubs, amongst many others, told UEFA and Discovery+ in Sweden that:

"I like him [meaning Lebron James] a lot. He's phenomenal, but I don't like when people with a status speak about politics. Do what you're good at doing… I play football because I'm the best playing football. I'm no politician. If I'd been a politician, I would be doing politics…

This is the first mistake famous people do when they become famous. For me it is better to avoid certain topics and do what you're good doing, otherwise you risk doing something wrongly."

Although I am a fan of both athletes, and I am sure James is doing some good work, fuelled by good intentions; why does everything today need to injected with politics? It seems that everything you do or see at the minute has some injected political message from an organization, celebrity, or sports star.

Today, politics appears more commodified and tokenized that ever before. Infinitely complex problems relating to race, poverty, crime, mental health, employment, and many other issues, are not going to be changed by posting a picture and a 50-word caption on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Minds - for any celebrity who is really ahead of the curve.

Again, I am not even criticizing Lebron James here, who I am a fan of. It is the overall trend today of stars constantly getting involved in politics that is nauseating. And that what Zlatan is having a pop at, and he is totally right to do so. It is almost an expectation for anyone who has a lot of followers on social media to take a stand on every major topic concerning politics.

Liberty! Why Bitcoin is One of the Most Revolutionary Technologies Ever Created – A Guide to Freedom… Central bankers hate Bitcoin. For example, Christine Lagarde, the European Central Bank (ECB) President and former head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), who was convicted of negligence in France back in 2018 after allowing a businessman to be paid €400 million in public funds, recently called for bad Bitcoin to be regulated globally.

Central bankers hate Bitcoin not because it is a scam, a bubble, or something only used by terrorists, criminals, or crackpots. The real reason why central bankers hate Bitcoin is because it is a genius form of money that exists outside of their system of centralized financial control. For this fundamental reason alone, Bitcoin is one of the most revolutionary and empowering technologies in the history of human civilization.

Bitcoin promotes freedom and individual sovereignty, allowing people to control their money whilst reducing the need for third parties. It is one of the few times in history that a system of money has been created that is not issued and controlled by a government or a central bank. Furthermore, it is probably the only system of workable money ever created that is decentralized and not privately controlled, as some private institutions have issued bank notes in the past.

There is no CEO of Bitcoin, no company address, no helpline, no office – no centralized authority that can arbitrarily change the rules of the game. Essentially, Bitcoin is owned and controlled by those who buy and use it, governed only by its protocol.

Covid-19 is a Consolidation of Power – The Destruction of Small Businesses - Arrogant and overpaid politicians have spent the last year arbitrarily determining who is essential and who is supposedly not. In practice, this has meant that countless small and medium-sized businesses have been punished, whereas large, multinational corporations have been allowed to make millions.

The impact of Covid lockdowns on small and medium-sized businesses has been well studied. After the first round of lockdowns last year, a report released by the International Trade Centre (ITC) found that nearly two-thirds of small and micro businesses from 132 countries said they were “strongly affected” by lockdowns, with around 20% of firms saying they were close to shutting down permanently.

In the UK, a report from September of last year found that over 230,000 small businesses were forced to close since the first lockdown was imposed in March. Furthermore, a survey conducted in October of 2020 found that around 6m small businesses were financially struggling due to the lockdowns, with this situation threatening over 16m jobs. In the US, a report from last year estimated that nearly 100,000 businesses had permanently closed since the start of the pandemic.

The news is not all bad on the small business front however. There have been many instances where small business owners have simply refused to comply with government dictates. In Italy, some restaurant owners have opened their restaurants for dinner service despite government restrictions in acts of peaceful civil disobedience. Owners have been using the hashtag “#IoApro” (I Open) on social media to spread the word. In San Diego, some business owners opened despite the restrictions, saying that they were simply “trying to survive.”

Restricting freedom of speech has been a key feature of fascist regimes down through history. This is often done under the banner of political correctness, which gives a central authority the justification to censor speech, and more important, the ideas expressed by that speech.

Political correctness first appeared in the Marxist-Leninist vocabulary in the wake of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Russia. It was used as a way to generate obedience to the aims and policies of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, with it being politically incorrect to question the party line.

As the Soviet Union developed, pollical correctness continued to be used by the totalitarian Soviet establishment to maintain ideological uniformity. Books and magazines considered politically incorrect were removed from libraries and print. Scientists, writers and artists who criticized the Soviet regime were persecuted, and often sent to forced labor camps, called Gulags.

There are numerous problems with banning freedom of speech. Firstly, a restriction of freedom of speech is a restriction of freedom of thought in many ways. Language, after all, is the main tool we use to communicate ideas to each other. A culture of restricted speech also results in self-censorship, which further limits speech.

Wash Your Hands!

Secondly, by severely restricting freedom of speech and the ideas behind that speech, we may in fact be restricting the truth. Speech considered offensive today may become an undeniable fact tomorrow. If ideas are not given the light of day, how can we decide their merit?

Down through history, there have been numerous examples of ideas that have been suppressed because they challenged the orthodox status quo, only to be recognised as truly revolutionary years later. For example, in the 1840s, the Hungarian physician, Ignaz Semmelweis, began washing his hands with a chlorinated lime solution before helping to deliver babies. Unsurprisingly from our modern perspective, the number of women who died giving birth dropped dramatically.

Instead of being congratulated by the medical establishment of the day however, Semmelweis was shunned in large part, and his revolutionary practice was only recognised after he died. If people are not allowed to speak freely and openly exchange ideas, scientific breakthroughs and life-saving discoveries have much less chance of seeing the light of day.

Neo-Slavery World Order: The Great Reset is Not Great and Not New - The Great Reset is just the latest instalment of the grand agenda to completely reorder global society by the end of the 21st century. Prior to the Great Reset for instance, the United Nations (UN) Agenda 21 was adopted by 178 governments in Rio in 1992, taking the form of a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.”

Global, unelected special interests have a vision of what your future is going to look like, and these international networks of power ideally want you to blindly accept every aspect of your life being controlled by experts, with this system known as technocracy, or rule by experts (technicians).

Before we delve deeper into the insidious nature of the neo-slavery world order, a little context on the organization behind the reset is needed. It is the brainchild of the World Economic Forum (WEF) at Davos, led by Professor Klaus Schwab, the founder and Executive Chairman of the WEF, with other global organizations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the UN pushing this initiative.

You Will Own Nothing

Back in 2016, the WEF featured a ridiculous article written by Ida Auken, that described a system akin to neo-feudalism:

“Welcome to the year 2030… I don't own anything. I don't own a car. I don't own a house. I don't own any appliances or any clothes.”

A system where you, as an individual, do not own anything, is a system where everything you have can be taken away from you at a drop of a hat. It essentially describes a neo-feudal, or neo-slavery, system. In feudal systems in medieval Europe (5th to 15th century approximately), the serfs, who were the lowest class of people in a hierarchical system, were slaves in many ways.

The Great Reset Explained

Yet what exactly is the Great Reset?

On the 18th of October, 2019, a simulation, or war game, was conducted that predicted future events with an almost unbelievable degree of accuracy. In fact, Event 201 was so similar to what happened in the real world that the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security had to release a statement saying that they and their partners “did not make a prediction” during their exercise.

What was Event 201?

As the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security explains:

“Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.”

Lockdowns Kill: The Lethal Consequences of Covid-19 Lockdowns - Body bags are piling up, and I don’t mean from those people who have actually died of Covid-19. The imposition of lockdowns has most likely caused at least thousands-upon-thousands of innocent people to die. On top of death, lockdowns and other government measures to apparently fight the virus are destroying freedom, wrecking the economic and social systems of the world, whilst also causing widespread mental health, and domestic, problems. Despite these facts, certain governments continue to push lockdowns.

WHO Covid-19 Envoy Opposes Lockdowns - Even David Nabarro, the World Health Organization’s special envoy for Covid-19, has had to speak out against lockdowns. He told Andrew Neil in an interview with Spectator TV, that:

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus… Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may have a doubling of world poverty by next year... This is a terrible, ghastly global catastrophe actually. So, we really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method, develop better systems for doing it... Remember, lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never, ever belittle, and that is: making poor people an awful lot poorer” (25:13 into video).

Julius Caesar’s Writings on the Druids, the Ancient Celtic Priesthood Who Practiced Human Sacrifice…

In Julius Caesar’s book, The Conquest of Gaul, there is a relatively detailed description of the mysterious Druids, who are described by Caesar as a sort of Celtic priesthood. Caesar’s book focuses on the Roman campaign in Gaul (which loosely corresponds to modern-day France and other neighbouring countries) and then later into Britain. The Gallic wars lasted from around 58 BC to 50 BC.

Obviously, Caesar is a biased source, as the Druids had power amongst tribes that Caesar was trying to conquer; namely, the Celts in Gaul and Britain. We also know that Caesar’s book was written as a piece of propaganda for a Roman audience. Caesar was well aware that his book, which is strangely written in the third person, would be read back in Rome. This explains why Caesar constantly portrays Caesar as a figure who solves all problems that arise, whether that be in his own ranks, or amongst the barbarian hordes, as Rome saw them.

Despite these reservations, Caesar’s description of these enigmatic people is still fascinating. Caesar starts by describing the organization of the Gauls, writing that the Druids and the Knights are the two privileged classes. “The Druids officiate at the worship of the gods, regulate public and private sacrifices, and give rulings on all religious questions,” according to Caesar (Caesar 1982: 140).

The Druids also played a legal role, as they acted “as judges,” and this attracted young men to them for guidance (Caesar 1982: 140). Each year, the Druids held a large meeting in the country of Carnutes, the centre of Gaul, where disputes were settled. Interestingly, Caesar wrote that the Druid tradition was imported to Gaul from Britain, which, at the time of writing in the first century BC, was still the place to study Druidism.

The Druids enjoyed many advantages, including being “exempt from military service” and not paying takes like other citizens did (Caesar 1982: 140). Furthermore, in line with Celtic traditions, the Druids memorized a lot of information and verses, and did not write a lot down, but apparently, they used the Greek alphabet when they did have to write.
Caesar’s commentaries tell us that the Druids engaged in long discussions about the universe, the nature of the gods, and the physical makeup of the world. As Caesar wrote, they believed that the “soul does not perish, but after death passes from one body to another; they think that this is the best incentive for bravery, because it teaches men to disregard the terrors of death” (Caesar 1982: 141).

Caesar also argues that the Gauls were extremely superstitious and that the Druids practiced human sacrifice. According to Caesar:

“As a nation the Gauls are extremely superstitious; and so, persons suffering from serious diseases, as well as those who are exposed to the perils of battle, offer, or vow to offer, human sacrifices, for the performance of which they employ Druids. They believe that the only way of saving a man’s life is to propitiate the god’s wrath by rendering another life in its place, and they have regular state sacrifices of the same kind.

Some tribes have colossal images made of wickerwork, the limbs of which they fill with living men; they are then set on fire, and the victims burnt to death. They think that the gods prefer the execution of men taken in the act of theft or brigandage, or guilty of some offence; but when they run short of criminals, they don’t hesitate to make up with innocent men” (Caesar 1982: 141).

Revolutionary Idea: How the American Bill of Rights (1791) Promotes Individual Liberty …

Please Donate Now through PayPal by visiting https://insighthistory.com/support and clicking the “Donate Now” button in your preferred currency, which will take you to PayPal.com. Thank you.

On the 15th of December, 1791, a document was ratified that is perhaps the most revolutionary and enlightened in the history of government. Although the American founding fathers were by no means perfect, and lived during a vastly different time than we do, the recognition of individual liberty in the United States Bill of Rights was lightyears ahead of its time. When the Bill of Rights is applied to all people, it provides a legal framework of freedom for everyone.

The story of the American Bill of Rights is an interesting one. Following the success of America in the Revolutionary War against British rule, which lasted from around 1775 to 1783, the founding fathers had to create a system of government for the US. Their first attempt came in the form of the Articles of Confederation. It was unsuccessful however, as it gave the federal government too little power to be effective.

The Constitution was then proposed to replace the Articles of Confederation. The Constitution was designed to create an effective blueprint for the political system of America as a federal republic, whilst protecting the rights of individual citizens and individual states. This was partly achieved through checks and balances being woven into the fabric of the system, and the division of the government into three branches: the legislative, the executive and the judicial branch.

However, despite the Constitution having many positives elements, a section of America felt that the rights of individuals needed to be explicitly enshrined in law. As Thomas Jefferson told James Madison on the 20th of December, 1787, when discussing the Constitution: "I will now add what I do not like. First, the omission of a bill of rights..." After much debate during this period over whether a bill of rights was needed or not, Madison introduced twelve amendments to the Constitution at the First Congress of the US in 1789, arguably in order to avoid a second constitutional convention having to take place.

The 1789 Joint Resolution of Congress noted that these amendments were introduced because “THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

On December the 15th, 1791, the American Bill of Rights was born. Ten of the proposed twelve amendments (amendments 3-12) were ratified by three-fourths of state legislatures. Over 200 years later, in 1992, the second article that was initially proposed in 1789 became the 27th amendment to the Constitution, which states that: “No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.”

The Covid-19 Data is a ‘Travesty’ (FULL VIDEO) - How the UK and US Covid Death Data is Inflated

Although people have tragically died from Covid-19, the way the Covid-19 death data is recorded in many countries around the world has produced, and continues to produce, an inflated death toll. This inflated death toll has then been, and continues to be, used by fascist-style bureaucracies, in conjunction with scientific priesthoods, to terrify the general public into obedience.

George Orwell (2008) 1984 (London: Penguin) p.43.

How George Orwell Predicted that the Covid-1984 Data Would be Inaccurate and Inflated (Part 3) - The manipulation of statistics has been a key feature of tyrannical regimes down through history. In the Soviet Union for instance, the Stalinist government constantly supressed or delayed the release of statistics that contradicted their agendas, and only released data that supported their initiatives.

Today, history looks to be repeating itself once again. Governments around the world are selectively using statistics in a way that inflates the scale of the Covid pandemic. For instance, over the past month or two, there has been a clear shift in the emphasis that the government and the media are placing on the number of positive Covid-19 cases. Yet with this shift in emphasise, both parties have largely failed to contextualise why this was always going to be the case once mass testing began.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that even if the Covid-19 tests being used are 100% accurate, the more tests you conduct, the more positive cases you are going to find. If we take the UK for example, the number of virus tests being conducted has been increasing month-by-month since May of this year.

On the 1st of May for instance, just under one million virus tests had been conducted in the UK. On the 1st of December, over 40 million virus tests had been conducted. In November alone, approximately 9 million virus tests were conducted in UK. Therefore, it is no surprise that there were more positive cases in November than there were in May. The number of positive cases only becomes even 1% relevant if there has been a consistent number of tests being conducted over many months, as this gives officials a base to compare too.

Furthermore, what percentage of tests are producing false positives? How sensitive are these tests? What is the margin of error in these cases, as some tests are reportedly picking up fragments of dead viruses from infections months ago that are no longer a potential issue? There are questions over the validity of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for instance, a popular test used. Kary Mullis, the inventor of the PCR test has said that "quantitative, PCR is an oxymoron."

The notion that governments around the world that are behaving in a fascist-style manner are using statistics to seemingly control the population is nothing unsurprising to those who understand history. As George Orwell wrote in his book 1984, where he used historical truths and his own insights to predict how a global dictatorial regime of the future would operate, explained…

George Orwell (2008) 1984 (Lond

Because correlation does not equal causation, simply recording Covid-19 deaths as any deaths involving a positive Covid-19 test within a given period of time is an extremely poor way to measure how many people have died. For instance, in the UK, the main figure being used for Covid-19 deaths is coded, as stated on the official Coronavirus website, as the “number of deaths of people who had had a positive test result for COVID-19 and died within 28 days of the first positive test.” This completely ignores the problem of causality, and thus, produces a much larger death toll than there actually is.

For instance, if someone has had an underlying heart condition for 10 years, and has a heart complication and dies, their death was most likely mainly caused by the heart condition that has plagued them for a decade. However, if that person had tested positive for Covid-19 for the first time within 28 days of them dying, that person could be included as a Covid-19 death in the UK, if all is required to be categorized as a Covid-19 death is simply a positive test result.

For those who understand that the way you code deaths dramatically changes the number of deaths you get, the UK authorities kindly illustrate this for us. There is a second number recorded by UK authorities which codes deaths as “people whose death certificate mentioned COVID-19 as one of the causes.” By coding deaths this way, there are thousands more Covid-19 deaths compared to when deaths are coded as “people who had had a positive test result for COVID-19 and died within 28 days of the first positive test.”

Despite the UK authorities having two ways to code Covid-19 deaths however, none of them are particularly accurate in my opinion. This is because the positive test figure does not deal with the issue of causality, and the death certificate figure only mentions Covid as needing to be “one of the causes” of death, rather than “the primary cause,” in addition to the death certificate figure not explicitly demanding the need for a positive Covid-19 test result.

If we turn our attention to the United States, we find similar issues with the Covid-19 data. One of the main figures the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reporting as the total number of provisional Covid deaths in the United States – which stands at 241,906 deaths at the time I am recording this audio - is presented as “all deaths involving Covid-19.” If we dig a little deeper, this number is based on “deaths with confirmed or presumed COVID-19, coded to ICD–10 code U07.1.

The response of governments to Covid-19 has given everyone around the world a first-class education in the value of freedom. Prior to us all collectively living in some sort of obscure, Orwellian, Soviet, fascist-style nanny state, where the all-corrupt government is trying to dictate every step we take, the concept of freedom seemed somewhat academic, or theoretical, to many. Now, as governments have taken their benign masks off and shown their true tyrannical desires, the merits of freedom have never been so clear.

Freedom is the ability to travel where you want without looking over your shoulder. Freedom is the ability for you to open your business and freely engage in economic activities. Freedom is the ability to visit the household of people you love. Freedom is the ability to go food shopping and not be compelled to muzzle your face like a criminal dog. Freedom is the ability not to have your life micromanaged by a bunch of corrupt, dysfunctional bureaucrats. Freedom is having control over what is put in your body. Freedom is the ability to say what you want, and think what you feel. Freedom is the ability not to have your every move tracked by an axis of corporate-state power. In short, freedom is the opposite of an Orwellian nightmare.

In systems of government where freedom has been evaporated step-by-step, life is cheap, ugly, and dull. Living in the Soviet Union was a life lived with a grey filter over the lens. Even the architecture was ugly. What was the value of life living in Soviet Russia, or Nazi Germany, or Maoist China, where millions-upon-millions of innocent people were starved, maimed, and killed, all for the greater good of course?

At this time in history, we are all getting a front row seat to a film titled: the merits of freedom. One of the main stars of the film is called Ecoprop, Newspeak for economic prosperity, because when freedom gets destroyed, economic prosperity gets destroyed with it.

As governments keep trying to push more and more fascism down our throats, the importance of freedom has never been so evident. So, I say, let the so-called authorities keep imposing more and more fascism, because as the people see what tyranny actually looks like, more people will scream for more and more freedom.

How the Covid Death Data is an Unscientific Mess – Explained in Under 4 Minutes (Part 1) - Although people have tragically died from Covid-19, the way the Covid-19 death data is recorded in many countries around the world has produced, and continues to produce, a hyperinflated death toll. This inflated death toll has then been, and continues to be, used by fascist-style bureaucracies, in conjunction with scientific priesthoods, to terrify the general public into obedience.

One of the most basic laws of statistics is that correlation does not equal causation. Although this may sound complicated, it’s not. It simply means that just because there is a correlation between two variables, or to put this another way, a close relationship between two things in the world, this does not mean that one thing is causing the other thing to happen.

A third factor may be causing the correlation that is observed for instance. As an example, there is usually a correlation in many countries between cold weather and people buying more goods in shops, or online, but this increase in buying is not caused by cold weather. Instead, it is caused by the Christmas period, when people spend more money, and it just happens to be the case that the weather is usually cold in December in many parts of the world that celebrate Christmas. So, even though there is a correlation between cold weather and increased buying patterns, cold weather does not cause increased buying patterns, but the Christmas period causes people to buy more goods.

Furthermore, the correlation that is observed between two things in the world may just be a product of random chance. This has led people to point to some funny correlations, such as the fact that there was a correlation between margarine consumption and divorce rates in the Maine between 2000 and 2009. There was also a correlation between per capita cheese consumption and the number of people who died by becoming tangled in their bedsheets, or the number of people who drowned by falling into a pool and films Nicholas Cage appeared in. Once again, correlation does not equal causation.

If we turn our attention back to the Covid death data, just because someone has tested positive for Covid-19 and died sometime after (even if we put aside for a second that some tests are known to give false positives), that does not mean that Covid-19 caused that person to die. Yet, the main figure many countries around the world are using to express Covid-19 deaths is simply recorded, or coded, as essentially any death involving a positive Covid-19 test, often within a given period of time.

Post-election chaos is just the latest instalment of division that is splintering America. Irrespective of your political alignment, it is clear to see that America is extremely polarized. This most recent expression of political division adds fuel to the fire in a country that is already divided along the lines of income, race, Covid, the police, American values, and much more.

Today, however, I want to focus on one aspect of division that is rarely discussed: namely, that for many elite, oligarchical interests at the top of the system, division is welcomed. For the corrupt bureaucratic, financial, pharmaceutical, military-industrial, and corporate power in America, the fact that many Americans are at war with their neighbours is advantageous. A divided people are a weakened people, as the public cannot effectively unify against the corrupt special interests who have significant influence over their lives.

As a 2014 study by Martin Gilens, Professor of Politics at Princeton University, and Benjamin Page, Professor of Decision Making at Northwestern University, concluded, America is essentially an oligarchy.

Although this study was conducted six years ago, economic special interests clearly still have considerable power over American politics, as with all other countries. In the first quarter of 2020 for instance, an estimated $938million was spent by lobbyists in Washington.

From the outside looking in, it looks as though divide and conquer, or divide and rule, is being employed by those at the top of the American system to control those at the bottom. By focusing on what divides the people rather than what unifies them, the mainstream media only looks to be exacerbating this fracture of American society.

It is also important to highlight that the US establishment was well aware that post-election chaos was highly likely. For example, the Transition Integrity Project (or TIP), which brought together numerous current and former government officials, polling outfits, and members of the media, predicted post-election chaos months before the vote took place.

How the British Empire Used Divide and Conquer to Rule the World - Divide and conquer has been one of the primary tactics imperial powers have used to maintain and expand their power down through history. Divide and conquer is a strategy where one power, or a group of powers, creates divisions in a target group, so as to weaken that group, making them easier to conquer or rule. Although this may sound simple, it is one of the most effective tactics that powerful interests have used, and continue to use, to control and conquer others.

The British Empire employed divide and conquer, also known as divide and rule, extensively in British-controlled India. A notable example of how Britain used divide and conquer in India was when British officials were reorganizing the Indian army after the rebellion, or mutiny, of 1857. The rebellion began in the summer of 1857 when Indian troops in Meerut turned on British officials and opened fire on them. Various factors sparked this uprising, but broadly speaking, these troops felt that British officials had insulted their culture and unjustly punished their comrades. This rebellion in Meerut quickly spread to other parts of India, and morphed into a larger movement against British rule. Britain did not manage to supress the rebellion until late 1958, after much bloodshed had been spilt by both sides.

In the wake of the rebellion, Britain completely reorganized their control over India. The British Crown took direct control over India, as previously India had been controlled on behalf of the establishment by the British East India Company. The Indian army was also reorganized, as Britain wanted to avoid any further mutinies in the ranks. At the time, the Indian army was made up of three branches, the Bengal, Madras and Bombay armies, which later formally merged in 1895 into the British Indian Army.

In their reorganization of the army after the rebellion had been suppressed, British officials implemented the tactic of divide and rule in an attempt to prevent any future mutinies (Morrock 1973: 130). Firstly, they increased the number of European troops that made up the army, which decreased the level of Indian unity found in the older Indian army (Stewart 1951: 50). Furthermore, British officials worked to emphasise the differences in the Indian army, in an attempt to prevent a unification of Indians against British rule along the lines of race, nationality, religion, or caste (Stewart 1951: 49).

As Lord Ellenborough, a British politician who served as Governor-General of British India from 1842-1844 stated: “The fewer elements of combination there are in the native army the better, and therefore the more nationalities and castes and religions, the more secure we shall be. Discipline alone should bind the army” (Stewart 1951: 53). As another British official, Lord Elphinstone, wrote: “Divide et Impera was the old Roman motto, and it should be ours” (Stewart 1951: 54).

In 1861, unit commanders in the Indian army were ordered to send an annual report on the religious and caste composition of each regiment to Calcutta. Furthermore, British officials introduced laws over the following years to keep the army divided along caste and religious lines, which led to the Indian army being largely obedient to their British rulers up until India gained independence in the late 1940s (Stewart 1951: 57).

Economic Fascism: Covid-19 Restrictions and Lockdowns Are Fascistic in Many Ways

The Covid-19 restrictions that have been imposed on the people by governments around the world are fascistic in various ways. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines fascism as “a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.” Various parts of this definition should jump out to you in relation to the Covid-19 restrictions.

Firstly, and most notably in the context of Covid, the section which explains how fascists use the power of government to exert severe economic and social control over society. Needless to say, severe regimentation or control of the economic and social sphere is exactly what governments have done in many so-called democracies over the pandemic. On the economic side, governments across the globe have forced private businesses to close, or partly close, for weeks or months at the time. On the social side, governments have severely restricted the ability of citizens to freely operate in the social sphere, limiting the ability of people to visit other households for instance.

Secondly, fascism is partly defined as a regime where the nation is placed above the individual, or to put this another way, the collective is placed above the individual. During the Covid-19 pandemic, how many times have you heard that you need to lose your rights as an individual for the sake of the greater good? Governments across the world have spent the entirety of Covid crisis, or manufactured crisis as some would say, emphasising the collective over the individual. The problem is that collective rights do not exist. The only rights that exist are individual rights. In the name of public health, governments have dropped an atomic bomb on the rights of individual citizens, as individuals have been prohibited from engaging in basic economic and social activities.

Regardless of the justification any fascist-style government uses to take your individual rights in the name of the public good, if no one in society has individual rights, everyone in society is a slave to the state.

Covid Care Home Hell: Did Government Actions Lead to the Most Vulnerable People in Society Dying? Under the banner of protecting the most vulnerable people from Covid-19, governments across the globe have imposed fascist-style restrictions. Yet as more evidence is unearthed about how authorities have handled Covid-19, particularly in relation to care homes, the notion that authorities helped to protect the most vulnerable people in society is laughable in many respects.

Amnesty International has just released a new report that argues that the UK government took decisions during the pandemic that violated the human rights of people in English care homes. The report is titled: As If Expendable: The UK Government’s Failure to Protect Old People in Care Homes During the Covid-19 Pandemic. The report begins by detailing that between the 2nd of March and the 12th of June, 2020, over 18,000 people in English care homes died with Covid-19, which was close to 40% of all Covid-related deaths in England during those months. The report states that “the UK government, national agencies, and local-level bodies have taken decisions and adopted policies during the COVID-19 pandemic that have directly violated the human rights of older residents of care homes in England.”

Since the start of pandemic, the serious threat posed by Covid-19 to elderly people with underlying health problems was clear, argues the report, yet the UK government “failed to take measures promptly and adequately to protect care homes.” One of the central criticisms was directed at decisions taken by English authorities at the national and local level in relation to Covid-19 patients being transferred into care homes. Authorities allowed elderly people who had Covid-19, or potentially had Covid-19, to be discharged from hospital and transferred into care homes, under the advice that these people were not required to test negative for Covid-19 for this transfer to take place. Furthermore, care homes managers told interviewers that they were pressured in numerous ways to accept elderly people who had Covid-19, or who had not been tested for the virus yet.
These policies, decisions and indecisions, were likely significant factors in Covid-19 spreading rapidly through care homes, resulting in thousands of the most vulnerable people in society dying. This all took place whilst the government was imposing restrictions on wider society in the name of protecting the most vulnerable people in society. How this Covid care home hell was allowed to unfold needs to be seriously investigated.

The issue of moving elderly people who were infected with Covid-19 into care homes was not just a problem in England however. In Scotland, it has been reported that at least five Scottish health boards transferred patients into care homes after those patients had tested positive for Covid-19. A report by Public Health Scotland into this issue was meant to be published last month, but it has been delayed. Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish First Minister, has previously sidestepped questions over whether she personally knew about cases where infected people were transferred into care homes by urging critics that they should wait for the report.

How Sweden Fought Covid With No Lockdown and No Facemasks – Did the Swedish No-Lockdown Work? As numerous countries around the world raced to impose a fascist-style lockdown, one country refused. That is not to say that Sweden did not impose restrictions to fight Covid-19, but the Swedish approach was largely voluntary and far more in line with what you would expect in a free and democratic country. Sweden did implement some laws, such as banning gatherings of more than 50 people, restricting visits to care homes, and restaurants and bars only allowed to provide table service. Actions such as good hygiene, working from home, and avoiding public transport were also encouraged. Yet no mandatory lockdown was imposed, gyms, restaurants and bars were kept open, and young children have being going to school all through the pandemic. Furthermore, Sweden has not forced citizens to were facemasks, with facemasks not even recommended in many instances.

The man at the centre of this strategy is Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s state epidemiologist. The Swedish constitution allows independent bodies to have considerable power outside of government, with Sweden’s response to Covid directed by public health officials. One of the core reasons why Sweden decided to take a more voluntary approach to fighting Covid-19 was in an attempt to make it more sustainable. Instead of constant, head-spinning law changes, as seen in many other countries, Sweden’s rules have been relatively consistent so far, and are predicted to remain consistent in the following months unless anything major changes. Another important reason why Sweden took this path was because officials decided - early in the pandemic - to take an “evidence-based” approach to tackling Covid, and they felt that other countries were imposing restrictions at a time when there was little scientific proof that these measures actually worked. Yet was their strategy a success?

How Globalization Destroyed the Western Middle Class - The world is becoming more equal but largely at the expense of middle-class Westerners, according to a recent paper by Branko Milanovic, a Stone Center Senior Scholar and a Centennial Professor at the London School of Economics. Milanovic’s paper was published in Foreign Affairs, the publication of the think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and was titled: The World Is Becoming More Equal, Even as Globalization Hurts Middle-Class Westerners. Broadly speaking, globalization is the process of increased “worldwide integration of the economic, cultural, political, religious, and social systems” of the globe, producing an increased flow of goods, capital, labour, and information, across national borders. It was a process that gained steam particularly in the mid-1980s, with globalization having the greatest transformative impact on life since the Industrial Revolution.

Milanovic’s paper starts by arguing that the world became more equal between the end of the Cold War and 2007/08 financial crisis, a period of high globalization. During this period however, globalization weakened the middle class in the West...

Milanovic goes on to note that in an updated paper that looks at incomes in 130 countries from 2008 to 2013-14, the first tension of globalization holds true: in that, the incomes of the non-Western middle class grew more than the incomes of the middle class in the West. The impact of globalization on the Western middle class is imperative to understand. Globalization is a process that has produced winners and losers, and the Western middle class has been the greatest loser.

In my opinion, any system that weakens the middle class in any country should be seen as counterproductive. Having a strong middle class is one of the most important tenets in building a strong, prosperous, and stable society. The middle class serves as the bedrock of any country: those who comprise the middle-class work hard, pay taxes, and buy goods. A true solution to poverty in underdeveloped countries would create more prosperity for everyone, not take prosperity from one region and redirect it into another. This so-called solution creates at least as many problems as it supposedly solves.

Globalization has produced, and will seemingly continue to produce, a global standardization of wealth in many ways. For those special interests who are in the process of creating a global system, an economic uniformity across the globe is advantageous for the creation of this one-world system.

The Sator square, an ancient magic square, appears to serve as one inspiration for Christopher Nolan’s new film, Tenet. The film, which is a blend of science fiction and international espionage, is well worth watching, even though it’s guaranteed to make your head spin. Despite its complexity, its lack of character development and its poor - potentially deliberately poor - sound mixing, the imagination and ambition of the film is brilliant, as with every other Nolan film.

Tenet, as a word, is obviously a palindrome, meaning that it reads the same left to right as right to left. The number ten, when expressed as a word, can also be found in both directions in the word Tenet. More importantly, the word Tenet sits at the core of an ancient magic square, called the Sator square. Magic squares have been used down through history in the belief that they have magical properties, and were still used in Europe and America as late as the nineteenth century to protect against fire, disease and theft. The Sator square is a four-directional palindrome, meaning that it can be read in four directions, and it is made up of five Latin words: Sator, Arepo, Tenet, Opera, and Rotas.

What is interesting is that all these words feature in the movie. Most obviously, Tenet is the name of the movie and the name of the time-travelling organization that is trying to save the world. Sator is the last name of the central antagonist in the movie, Andrei Sator, who is played by Kenneth Branagh. Arepo is the last name of an art forger in the plot of the film, whilst the first scene takes place in an opera. Finally, guards at a free port in the movie work for Rotas Security.

The first Sator square was discovered on a bathroom wall in 1925 when excavating the ruins of Pompeii. Ancient Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, meaning that the square predates that. If we look at the square as a sentence, SATOR AREPO TENET OPERA ROTAS translates as: “The farmer [named] Arepo uses [or holds] the plough for work.” Whether these five words were simply to be read as a sentence is unclear, but it seems unlikely, as why go to the trouble of weaving them into a magic square which can be read in numerous directions.

A later discovery was probably more significantly. If you rearrange the 25 letters that make up the square, you can make two copies of the words Pater Noster, with two A’s, and two O’s, left over. Pater Noster means “Our Father” in Latin and potentially speaks to the religious origins of the square. In fact, certain scholars argue that the creator of the square worked backwards: starting with two Pater Noster’s, two A’s and two O’s, and then creating the five words from the 25 letters available (Fishwick 1964: 42). The A’s and O’s are thought to mean Alpha and Omega, the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, potentially symbolizing god, and the start and end of time.

Global Reordering: The Club of Rome’s Plan for a New Planetary Civilization - Since a 2018 meeting in Rome, the international think-tank, the Club of Rome, has been pushing for the creation of a new planetary civilization. The Emerging New Civilizations Initiative (ENCI) calls for a global paradigm shift “in our fundamental belief matrix, and the complex economic, financial, social systems underpinning our daily interactions.” Essentially, the New Civilization(s) Initiative can be seen as a new way of living on a planetary scale, where new ways of living on a local level add up to form a new global civilization.

In advocating this idea, the Club of Rome employs a typical collectivist argument that emphasizes the collective over the individual, or to put it another way, the “we” over “me.” Although this may all sound wonderful to the untrained eye, history has shown us that this collectivist idea can be very dangerous. Perhaps coincidentally, many authoritarian regimes down through history have promoted this argument. The problem, however, is that collective rights do not exist - there are only individual rights. That is why it was so revolutionary for the Founding Fathers in America to create a Bill of Rights, which enshrined the rights of individuals in law…

The Club of Rome argues that we need a new planetary civilization because our current ways of living are unsustainable. As Paul Shrivastava, the Chief Sustainability Officer at Pennsylvania State University, told a Club of Rome event last year, a new civilization is needed because our previous ways of living and working are destroying the planet (17:00 into the video). He then goes on to argue, when discussing the merits of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, that because these socio-economic and environmental problems “are planetary scale problems… we need a governance system, or at least a way of thinking, that allows us to address them on systemic level” (19:00 to 20:39 in the video).

What is interesting about the logic of this second argument - that a global problem requires a global solution - is that it echoes the words of a report published by the Club of Rome all the way back in 1991. The report, titled: The First Global Revolution, was written by two high-level members of the Club, Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider. In a chapter called ‘The Vacuum,’ the authors begin by discussing ways in which “world cohesion” could be achieved (King and Schneider, 1991: p.68). They note that traditionally, societal cohesion was achieved by the forces of nationalism and religion. As the world changed however, this cohesion weakened, as religion declined in many countries and national politics was usurped by the forces of globalization in many instances.
