‘Soldiers and police officers offering support and protection to citizens protesting tyrannical lockdowns and “vaccine” mandates are under attack by their left-wing governments. Countries are vilifying and persecuting servicemen who remain faithful to the oath they took to defend their country against all foreign and domestic enemies.
Most recently, German Sergeant Major Andreas Oberauer was unlawfully arrested and smeared by international left-wing media for releasing a video demanding an end to Germany’s lockdown measures, mandatory “vaccines,” and violent abuse of protesters. In the December 28, 2021 video, Sergeant Oberauer drew attention to the abuse of children and the elderly at pro-freedom protests:
Now we see children being pushed down on the streets and old men being threatened with having their skulls smashed [by police].
The Sergeant called on his fellow soldiers and police officers to protect the daily peaceful protest walks taking place across Germany from the unconstitutional abusive behavior of the state police. In the video, he commands his subordinates to arrest officers physically abusing citizens and violating their rights:
Stand clearly with the people of Germany and clearly for Constitutional Law. This is addressed to every man, to defend the constitutional right of these demonstrations and to intervene to protect women and children from — what should I call them? Mercenaries? They can’t be called policemen anymore.
To protect. That’s exactly what I am calling every constitution-loyal policeman in Germany to do. Intervene, stop your own colleagues from attacking people, children and women. Equally, I also call upon every soldier today to intervene and protect these demonstrators — in uniform.
I will now give the command. Here speaks Sergeant Oberauer: I order all soldiers under my rank back into service in uniform, from 19:00. Your order is to protect the civilian population during demonstrations from all outside attacks and to intervene with every policeman behaving unconstitutionally or encroaching on the population’s rights. They are to be arrested and led to prosecution.
German Defense Ministry took to Twitter on December 30, 2021, to condemn the Sergeant’s video. They stated that it “contains threats against the state of law that are unacceptable.” He added that “the consequences are already being examined.”
Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht wrote that the military needs “upstanding people who stand firmly on the foundation of our constitution.” Anyone who doesn’t share those values “has no place in our Bundeswehr,” she added.
Whatever democracy is supposed to be it isn’t anymore in Australia. The China virus has allowed the Federal and state governments to rip away the freedoms once enjoyed. Once taken they will NEVER be returned! What is surprising and sad is how easily these freedoms were snatched from the citizens. Our political masters are selling us out to the highest bidder.
‘As we survey the current political, social and cultural landscape of Australia, we see that this pandemic has perhaps irrevocably changed who we are as a people and a nation.
Our national anthem boasts that “we are one and free”. However, the reality is we are anything but “one and free” right now.
The nation is as divided as we’ve ever seen it, not just with State borders closed so tight that it almost seems like you need a visa to get into parts of your own country but Australians are attacking other Australians on the basis of whether or not they’ve had a medical procedure that has only been provisionally approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
And “free”? What, with lockdowns, curfews, restrictions on gatherings, vaccine mandates for work, vaccine mandates for shopping, restrictions on GPs prescribing treatments, restrictions on leaving and entering the country? To paraphrase Darryl Kerrigan of The Castle, “you’ve got to be dreaming!”
Veteran journalist Chris Uhlmann summed up the situation in an opinion piece a few months ago. I want to quote the article at length because it is the best analysis I’ve read that so aptly describes the collective insanity that has captured our country:
So conditioned by fear are Australians to accepting the notion that COVID-19 is equivalent to the plague, the majority have learned to love Big Brother and hate dissenters…
… our pursuit of the fool’s errand of COVID Zero has seen us level every liberty, destroy educations and livelihoods and shut ourselves off from the world.
… it took us 230 years, but we finally managed to perfect the prison colony. We have even invented a perverse new “Covese” lexicon where “freedoms” are not rights, but gifts bestowed by premiers and where the police complain of “illegal family gatherings”.
Among the most depressing aspects of this supine acceptance of rank authoritarianism is the role of the media. Much of it has become a cheer squad for the blunt instrument of lockdowns and a moral hall monitor that polices thought crimes. The same organs that ritually hyperventilate about the detention of asylum seekers are the loudest voices in advocating imprisoning entire states.
Some lockdown fetishists appear to be planning to make shutdowns a lifestyle. There are sage warnings from “experts” not to pin our hopes of liberation on high rates of vaccination, for their perfect future to be realised restrictions must be as endemic as the disease.
This is Wuhan syndrome. The Economist has noted that the only countries persisting with a COVID elimination strategy are islands and dictatorships. We are now both.
Uhlmann’s assessment is not just the rantings of someone fed up with being stuck at home for too long. He’s actually got history and a lot of quality academic research on his side. The concept of mass psychosis and its connection with the rise of totalitarian regimes has long been studied by experts such as Carl Jung, Joost Merloo, Hannah Arendt and Frank Furedi to name but a few. In fact, the phenomenon has even been studied in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the study COVID-19 and the Political Economy of Mass Hysteria, researchers concluded:
Negative information which is spread through mass media repetitively can affect public health negatively in the form of nocebo effects and mass hysteria. We argue that mass and digital media in connection with the state may have had adverse consequences during the COVID-19 crisis. The resulting collective hysteria may have contributed to policy errors by governments not in line with health recommendations…
Unfortunately, once a mass hysteria takes hold of the government, the amount of damage the hysteria can inflict to life and liberty surges as the state’s respect for private property and basic human rights is limited. The violation of basic human rights in the form of curfews, lockdowns, and coercive closure of business has been amply illustrated during the COVID-19 crisis.
We have seen periods of mass insanity before, including during the infamous witch hunts in Europe and the United States that occurred in the 16th and 17th centuries, and in many nations that devolved in despotic regimes throughout the 20th century.
In his seminal work, The Rape of the Mind, the aforementioned Merloo noted:
… the totalitarian systems of the 20th century represent a kind of collective psychosis. Whether gradually or suddenly, reason and common human decency are no longer possible in such a system: there is only a pervasive atmosphere of terror, and a projection of “the enemy,” imagined to be “in our midst.” Thus society turns on itself, urged on by the ruling authorities.
A very informative animated explainer by After Skool on this concept can be found in the YouTube video below. I challenge you to watch it and see whether or not the concepts and conclusions it comes to around mass insanity are not relevant to the world and, sadly, country we live in today.
So the question is: what do we do about it?
I am by no means any sage that can point us out of this mess but, as you might have seen at the end of the After Skool video, other great minds have contemplated such questions in different eras where the many seem to have fallen for a delusion, which can also be termed The Lie.
It seems then that there are five key steps to defeat The Lie:
Get your own life in order and live free of The Lie.
Spread the truth to counter The Lie.
Ridicule the Elites who are behind The Lie.
Join a movement that fosters a culture of truth within a society that is dominated by The Lie. (This is exactly what I am attempting to do with the Nation First newsletter.)
Peaceful action by as many people as possible who have not succumbed to The Lie.
YouTube and the other social platforms such as Facebook etc. are headed by Leftist/Marxist/Communist leaning people. If this continues there will be no alternative information put forth for people to read and make proper decisions in life. Freedom always comes at a cost and are we willing to pay that cost for that freedom?
Thankfully there is Rumble which has given people the freedom to put forth alternative views. HERE IS THE VIDEO YOUTUBE REMOVED!!!
The major political parties in Australia have gone PC WOKE as well as swallowing all of the climate scam Kool-Aid. However, don’t despair there is a new party for true conservatives, Australia One Party https://australiaoneparty.com/.
The following is one reason why a new conservative party is needed! When you have politicians like the Liberal and Labor Party who needs enemies?
‘A Chinese-owned data storage company will house files for the Australian Defence Force, sparking fears the global superpower could easily access Australia’s military secrets.
The parent company of data firm Global Switch, Aldersgate Investments, sold 49 per cent of its stake to Chinese consortium Elegant Jubilee in 2016.
At the time then-treasurer Scott Morrison said all military documents would be phased out of the storage facility in Ultimo, Sydney, by 2020.
Instead the contract, which was due to expire in October last year, was quietly renewed until September 2025 in a $53.5million deal, federal parliament revealed on Tuesday.
In 2017 Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who was then treasurer, ordered all sensitive data be removed from a storage facility run by Global Switch in Sydney by 2020, reported the Daily Telegraph.
‘They’ve made a decision to get their data out of that data centre and that’s an entirely appropriate decision, and they’ll get that done I understand by 2020,’ he said at the time.
Mr Morrison defended the renewal in parliament this week, saying the facility does not hold the most classified documents and defence was moving ‘less sensitive and unclassified data assets to an alternative data centre’.
However, Queensland MP Bob Katter and independent MP Andrew Wilkie moved a motion to end data storage contracts with foreign-owned companies.
‘What is the point of having a defence system when a military 100 times larger than ours knows where all your defence assets are?’ Mr Katter said in parliament.
Elegant Jubilee bought their $4billion stake in the company in cash, a decision by Aldersgate Investments that caused ire among some UK politicians at the time.
Defence has said they will control the data at the Sydney warehouse until all the files had migrated somewhere else by 2025.
The Australian Taxation Office and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission are progressively moving their files away from the company due to security concerns.
‘Across the many international markets in which we operate, Global Switch partners with governments and leading organisations to house their mission critical IT infrastructure,’ Group Director of Global Switch in the Asia Pacific Damon Reid said in a statement.
Is freedom in the UK completely gone? The UK and under Biden freedom is slowly being distinguished. Where does one that seeks true liberty go?
‘• London contender Brian Rose accuses No.10 of undermining democracy that leaves police in ‘impossible position’ over May elections • Rose and campaign team arrested despite ensuring fully digital campaign bus is safest in the country • Dangerously vague election guidance threatens fair vote, says Rose London Mayor candidate Brian Rose has accused the Prime Minister of undermining democracy after Rose and his campaign team were arrested while campaigning in London yesterday (Sunday 24 January). Rose is using a COVID-secure, fully digital battle bus to visit the city’s 32 boroughs ahead of the scheduled May elections, allowing the public to communicate with him via social media during lockdown but with the public kept off the bus itself. While the bus was parked legally in Southwark on Sunday morning, a large group of City of London police descended on Rose’s team, arresting them and issuing £200 fines. At the time, Rose was recording a piece to video, while social distancing. His team produced the relevant parking and filming permits, but was informed that “campaigning was not a necessary reason to be out of your homes”, despite the police being told that other political parties have continued to operate leafleting activities throughout the lockdown. The lockdown regulations include express exceptions for people to leave the house and gather in groups where engaging in voluntary work as our campaigners were or working as the production team were. WE URGENTLY DEMAND THAT POLICE FORCES ACROSS LONDON RECONSIDER HOW THEY RESPOND TO LAWFUL CAMPAIGNING.’ https://brianformayor.london/
