“The totalitarian systems of the 20th Century represent a kind of collective psychosis. Whether gradually of suddenly, reason and common 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”.
Are we heading down the same road?
What happened to individual liberty and personal responsibility?
Or freedom of speech and the necessity of differing opinions?
We are being divided once more by the media, politicians, academics and big corporations.
Extraordinary, though imperfect progress was made in the years since WW2 in recognising the human rights of all people regardless of race, sex or sexual orientation.
But the direction we have taken over the last decade, which has accelerated exponentially in the last 18 months since COVID, places us in danger of undoing it all and ushering in a new dark age where governments become more authoritarian, where individuals become less and less free and where society regresses into tribal groups based on superficial identity makers – which is the true breeding ground of bigotry – and which will have a renaissance in all its forms, if we continue down this path.
If we don’t want to regress to dark days past, the silent majority must begin to resist the authoritarian overreach of our governments and the collective woke insanity sweeping western democracies and stand up for all that we knew to be true until 5 mins ago.
And that is the purpose of this blog and precisely what we are going to help you to do.
