Letter to the UK Government On the Proposed Replacement of the Human Rights Act 1998 with a Modern Bill of Rights

Margaret Anna Alice

“This is the story of a duel. It is a duel between two very unequal adversaries: an exceedingly powerful, formidable, and ruthless state and an insignificant, unknown private individual. The duel does not take place in what is commonly known as the sphere of politics; the individual is by no means a politician, still less a conspirator or an enemy of the state. Throughout, he finds himself very much on the defensive. He only wishes to preserve what he considers his integrity, his private life, and his personal honor. These are under constant attack by the government of the country he lives in, and by the most brutal, but often also clumsy, means.”
Sebastian Haffner, Defying Hitler

I am writing to express grave concerns regarding the Human Rights Act Reform: A Modern Bill of Rights – Consultation, which recommends extensive revisions to the Human Rights Act 1998.

I often contemplate how people who consider themselves virtuous can blithely commit acts, make decisions, and enact policies that infringe the rights; curtail the liberties; and inflict anguish and even death on incalculable individuals.

I’m not talking about the tyrants—who are nearly all psychopaths—but about the ordinary colluders, without whose cooperation the tyrants could not execute their tyranny.

Is it bribery? Blackmail? Threats? Hypnosis? Ideological capture? Social and political pressures? Lust for power? Envy? Fear? Pride? Likely miscellaneous mashups of the above depending on the participant—served with a philanthropic side of self-delusion.

Since you’ve made the effort to read this far, I’ll be charitable and assume it’s just self-delusion in your case. You probably believe these policy reforms are for the best. Unless you’re a blackguard, that’s the only way you could cope with the moral ramifications of green-lighting legal transubstantiations that unfurl the crimson carpet for totalitarianism.

So, before you read further, I have a simple request. Try to actively resist the temptation to rationalize, to justify, to abstract away the concrete consequences of your decisions. Resolve to cease lying to yourself, as Dostoyevsky’s Father Zossima admonishes:

Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others.”
The Brothers Karamazov

Take a deep, belly-filling breath. Stand up and wiggle your whole body, from your toes to your knees to your elbows to your nose. Feel the physicality of your body and notice your sensations. Don’t be afraid to feel silly. Laugh at yourself. Shake out all the lies. Blow raspberries if you like.

Then let all the truths you’ve been hiding from your conscience rise to your consciousness. At this point, you may need a cathartic cry. That’s okay. It means you’re human and thus better-equipped to make decisions about human rights policies than a sociopathic bureaucrat.

Doesn’t that feel better? Don’t you feel lighter, more open, more welcoming of ideas that stretch your thinking?

With that frame of mind, let’s examine some of those proposed reforms, starting with:

[O]ur system must strike the proper balance of rights and responsibilities, individual liberty and the public interest, rigorous judicial interpretation, and respect for the authority of elected law-makers.”

These sound like the gilded words all authoritarian regimes deploy to persuade people to accept degradations of their individual liberties and rights in the name of the notorious “greater good.”

Reading that statement as beneficent requires a cultivated amnesia about the totalitarianism that bloodied the bleakest decades of the last century.

In his May 1983 essay Totalitarianism & the Lie, Polish philosopher Leszek Kołakowski writes:

In both forms of totalitarian socialism—nationalist and internationalist—social control of production for the common good was stressed as essential.”

He continues:

The destructive action of totalitarian machinery is usually supported by a special kind of primitive social philosophy. It proclaims not only that the common good of ‘society’ has priority over the interest of individuals, but that the very existence of individuals, as persons, is reducible to the existence of the social ‘whole’; in other words, personal existence is, in a strange sense, unreal. This is a convenient foundation for any ideology of slavery.”

See if you recognize that foundation for the ideology of slavery in these items from the Executive Summary (emphasis mine):

  • [#3] “We will overhaul the Human Rights Act passed by the then Labour government in 1998 and restore common sense to the application of human rights in the UK.… we will reverse the mission creep that has meant human rights law being used for more and more purposes, and often with little regard for the rights of wider society.”
  • [#4] “Our reforms will be a check on the expansion and inflation of rights without democratic oversight and consent, and will provide greater legal certainty.”
  • [#6] “The Bill of Rights will make sure a proper balance is struck between individuals’ rights, personal responsibility, and the wider public interest.”
  • [#9] “provide greater clarity regarding the interpretation of certain rights, such as the right to respect for private and family life, by guiding the UK courts in interpreting the rights and balancing them with the interests of our society as a whole
  • [#9] “recognise that responsibilities exist alongside rights, and that these should be reflected in the approach to balancing qualified rights and the remedies available for human rights claims”

These statements unapologetically articulate the authors’ intention to roll back individual human rights for the sake of “wider society,” a sentiment repeatedly echoed throughout the document.1

You know who else championed putting “the common good before the individual good”Hitler. And Stalin. And Mussolini. And Mao. And Ceauşescu. And Castro. And his son Trudeau. And every dictator ever—including present-day masochist-fascist Rodrigo Duterte, who stated:

“Love of country, subordination of personal interests to the common good, concern and care for the helpless and the impoverished—these are among the lost and faded values that we seek to recover and revitalize as we commence our journey towards a better Philippines.”

Psychotherapist Nathaniel Branden dissects the psychology of the aeons-old despotic demand for individuals to sacrifice for the “public good”:

With such [collectivist] systems, the individual has always been a victim, twisted against him-or-her-self and commanded to be ‘unselfish’ in sacrificial service to some allegedly higher value called God or pharaoh or emperor or king or society or the state or the race or the proletariat—or the cosmos [or COVID]. It is a strange paradox of our history that this doctrine—which tells us that we are to regard ourselves, in effect, as sacrificial animals—has been generally accepted as a doctrine representing benevolence and love for humankind. From the first individual … who was sacrificed on an altar for the good of the tribe, to the heretics and dissenters burned at the stake for the good of the populace or the glory of God, to the millions exterminated in … slave-labor camps for the good of the race or of the proletariat, it is this [collectivist] morality that has served as justification for every dictatorship and every atrocity, past or present.”
The Psychology of Romantic Love

Academy of Ideas explains How the “Greater Good” Is Used as a Tool of Social Control:

It appears we have arrived at the “stage of ultimate inversion” predicted by Ayn Rand:

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”

Whether it comes in the guise of “wider society,” “wider public interest,” “society as a whole,” “the greater good,” or “public health,” “the common good” is always a euphemism for seizing individual rights to enhance tyrannical powers, as Albert Camus so incisively captured in his 1955 speech “Homage to an Exile”:

“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.”
Resistance, Rebellion, and Death

Subsuming the individual into the collective is the very definition of totalitarianism:

Every private act—a telephone call, the use of an electric light, the service of a physician—becomes a public act. Every private right—to take a walk, to attend a meeting, to operate a printing press—becomes a public right. Every private institution—the hospital, the church, the club—becomes a public institution. Here, although we never think to call it by any name but pressure of necessity, we have the whole formula of totalitarianism.

The individual surrenders his individuality without a murmur, without, indeed, a second thought—and not just his individual hobbies and tastes, but his individual occupation, his individual family concerns, his individual needs. The primordial community, the tribe, re-emerges, its preservation the first function of all its members. Every normal personality of the day before becomes an ‘authoritarian personality.’

A few recalcitrants have to be disciplined (vigorously, under the circumstances) for neglect or betrayal of their duty. A few groups have to be watched or, if necessary, taken in hand—the antisocial elements, the liberty-howlers, the agitators among the poor, and the known criminal gangs. For the rest of the citizens—95 per cent or so of the population—duty is now the central fact of life. They obey, at first awkwardly but, surprisingly soon, spontaneously.

The community is suddenly an organism, a single body and a single soul, consuming its members for its own purposes. For the duration of the emergency the city does not exist for the citizen but the citizen for the city.

– Milton Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933–45

Kolakowski further underscores this equation:

Total power and total ideology embrace each other. The ideology is much more comprehensive (at least in its claims) than any religious faith has ever been. Not only does it have all-embracing pretensions, not only is it supposed to be infallible and obligatory, but its aim (unattainable, fortunately) goes beyond dominating and regulating the personal life of every subject to the point where it actually replaces personal life altogether, making human beings into replicas of ideological slogans. In other words, it annihilates the personal form of life. This is much more than any religion has ever prescribed.”

In the proposed Modern Bill of Rights, the Chapter 3 summary contains several alarming examples of what the authors believe is “flawed” about the original Human Rights Act, such as:

  • “the growth of a ‘rights culture’ that has displaced due focus on personal responsibility and the public interest”
  • “public protection put at risk by the exponential expansion of rights”

Anyone alert to the threat of tyranny will read these lines with a cynical eye toward the underlying meaning. With COVID having been used as a pretext for imposing increasingly autocratic restrictions over the past two years, the intention of these statements could not be clearer.

Scare-quoting “rights culture” conveys a sneering condescension toward those “Deplorables” and “Brexiteers” who dared exercise their critical thinking skills to make decisions about their personal health—unlike the Covidians who hypnotically obeyed their designated gods and virtue-signaled their veneration by sacrificing up their faces and arms.

Funny thing is, we Deplorables were right—and the pedestaled “experts” (yes, I’m the one using contemptuous scare quotes this time) were deadly, fatally, lethally wrong.

The cumulative scientific evidence has now irrefutably demonstrated that:

The UK government is even facing litigation by a group of psychologists for the “grossly unethical” brainwashing tactics it used to whisk the populace into a psychologically traumatizing state of fear.

Individuals were coerced— without informed consent regarding the potential adverse effects—into submitting to hazardous experimental injections with a grisly safety profile to keep their jobsaccess facilities, and even buy food.

Many of those people either suddenly died or were so severely injured by the COVID vaccines that they can no longer work, thus negating their decision to comply with the illegal mandates to maintain their employment. In addition to losing their income, they are now saddled with spiraling medical bills with no legal recourse for compensation from the government-sheltered pharmaceutical corporations.

According to the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) data, the injections not only fail to prevent COVID—they actually have a negative efficacy of up to 226 percent.

For example, 40–49-year-olds who were gullible enough to get boosted have more than tripled their chances of contracting COVID, and deaths among the boosted population are nearly six times higher than those among the unvaccinated.

Researchers are discovering “consistent pathophysiological alterations” post-injection, and “lab studies show that mRNA vaccine DOES integrate itself into human cellular DNA.”

Who knows what else they’ll find by the time this Mengelesque experiment ends since these drugs are still in clinical trials. Perhaps the subjects will end up like the victim of DNA experimentation depicted in the oracular O Lucky Man.

Unless governments, corporations, and complicit agencies are intentionally trying to kill off massive swaths of the world population—which, frankly, looks to be the case as no degree of incompetence could account for the failure to alter course after the galactic spike in non-COVID mortality and injuries (especially cardiac ones in young, healthy, athletic individualscoinciding with the global transfection rollout and the subsequent coordinated coverup of these fatalities—then it’s time to STOP all COVID injections now and hold the perpetrators of this murderous fraud accountable, even as they are attempting to sweep their crimes against humanity under the rug while redirecting attention to the next diversionary crisis.

What does this have to do with the UK’s proposed human rights reforms? Everything.

Imposed in the name of “public health,” the worldwide COVID strategy emphasized the “wider public interest” and “broader needs of society” over “individual rights.”

Two years into these authoritarian measures, it is no longer possible to ignore the mass casualties and harm they caused. Had the rest of the world possessed the dictatorial and surveillance powers of China so admired by WEF middle-finger puppets like Trudeau—which this Modern Bill of Rights helps legitimize—even more people would have been forcefully experimented upon than already have been.

The point is, policymakers can be “mistaken” (being generous here), and requiring citizens to submit to their lock step edicts can endanger their lives and health.

People have the rights to conduct their own research, arrive at their own conclusions, and make decisions about their own bodies, and those rights must be defended at all costs because, as Rod Serling notes, “the State is not God”:

If anything, the protections for individual liberties, rights, bodily autonomy, freedom of expression, and privacy should be increased to defend against the tyrannical and life-threatening encroachment of the State, but the proposed human rights reforms accomplish the reverse:

  • [#282] “The Convention recognises certain rights as ‘qualified’, which means they can be balanced with the rights of others and the needs of society in general. These rights include the right to respect for private and family life (Article 8); freedom of thought, conscience and religion (Article 9); freedom of expression (Article 10); and freedom of assembly and association (Article 11).”
  • [#290] “There are other rights in the Convention, known as ‘limited’ rights, which can be subject to restrictions, such as the right to liberty and security (Article 5) and the right to a fair trial (Article 6).”

Saying “freedom of thought” should be “qualified” and “balanced with … the needs of society” is literally describing thoughtcrime. If that doesn’t send an electrifying shock down your spine, you’ve probably never read or watched 1984, which is the world such Orwellian alterations will help bring to fruition.

Eroding (“qualifying”) the rights listed in #282 also appears to contravene the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which Amnesty International says:

outlines 30 rights and freedoms that belong to all of us and that nobody can take away from us. The rights that were included continue to form the basis for international human rights law.”

Article 2 notes:

“Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind.”

It looks to me like practically every one of these articles has been violated in the name of Almighty COVID—including Articles 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30.

If you don’t think it was a malefaction against human rights to psychologically terrorize, deprive of employment, and threaten exclusion from society to coerce individuals into ignorantly accepting an untested, never-before-used technology whose long-term consequences are unknown, then it’s time for you to revisit the Nuremberg Code:

[T]he person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.”

Meredith Miller further explores these transgressions in The Violation of Consent:

  • “To oppose a person’s right to bodily autonomy is an attack on human rights.”
  • “Remember the power of your choice when you hear the social and political pressure (ie: bribing, shaming, blaming and guilt-tripping) to do something to your body that you are not okay with.”
  • “They aim to make you feel that you don’t have the right or the worthiness to make your own choice because your individuality is not valid when it comes to the greater good. You’re expected to sacrifice your own wellbeing for the collective.”
  • Millions of people in history have been killed as a result of ideologies using the euphemism of the greater good.

So unless you want to be culpable for instituting verbiage changes that wind up macerating human rights, you will deep-six the Modern Bill of Rights and stick with the Human Rights Act 1998International Bill of Human RightsNuremberg Code, and Declaration of Helsinki.

I know the tyrannical forces of global agencies, multinational corporations, and string-pulling Svengalis are bearing down upon you, fully expecting you to comply with their authoritarian machinations as they’re so accustomed to their marionettes doing.

You will need to reach into the deepest part of your soul and rediscover your inner medieval knight to slay the technocratic dragon endeavoring to reboot the world.

As is posed in O Lucky Man—a sibylline meditation on human rights in an age controlled by multinational conglomerates in connivance with the military-medical-governmental complex—“It’s a big challenge. You think you’re up to it?”

*Below are examples of similarly disturbing passages from Human Rights Act Reform: A Modern Bill of Rights – Consultation:

[#124] “The international human rights framework recognises that not all rights are absolute and that an individual’s rights may need to be balanced, either against the rights of others or against the wider public interest. Many of the rights in the Convention are ‘qualified’, recognising explicitly the need to respect the rights of others and the broader needs of society.”

[#125] “The increasing reliance on human rights claims over the years has, however, led to a culture of rights decoupled from our responsibilities as citizens, and a displacement of due consideration of the wider public interest.”

[#131] “Whilst human rights are universal, a Bill of Rights could require the courts to give greater consideration to the behaviour of claimants and the wider public interest when interpreting and balancing qualified rights. More broadly, our proposals can also set out more clearly the extent to which the behaviour of claimants is a factor that the courts take into account when deciding what sort of remedy, if any, is appropriate. This will ensure that claimants’ responsibilities, and the rights of others, form a part of the process of making a claim based on the violation of a human right.”

[#182] “The government wants to introduce a Bill of Rights in a way that protects people’s fundamental rights whilst safeguarding the broader public interest. For that framework to work, it must command public confidence, and provide greater legal certainty and respect for the separation of powers between the judicial and legislative branches of government.”

[#302] “the government believes that our new human rights framework should reflect the importance of responsibilities.”

[#303] “when a court is considering the proportionality of an interference with a person’s qualified rights, it will consider the extent to which the person has fulfilled their own relevant responsibilities.”

[#289] “We consider that the application of the principle of proportionality by the courts has created considerable uncertainty and impinged on the ability of elected lawmakers to balance individual rights with due respect for the wider public interest. We want decisions regarding human rights to be taken in a fair and balanced way, which consider the needs of the individual who has claimed that their rights have been infringed but also ensures due consideration of the rights of others and the diverse interests of society as a whole.”

[#291] “In general, in the area of qualified and limited rights, the government believes that whilst the courts are required to determine the application of rights to the particular facts of any case, where Parliament has expressed its clear will on complex and diverse issues relating to the public interest, this should be respected.”

Here’s another view:

”First: ‘I never read the proclamations of Generals before battle, the speeches of Fuhrers and Prime Ministers, the solidarity songs of public schools and left wing political parties, national anthems, Temperance Tracts, papal encyclicals, and sermons against gambling and contraception, without seeming to hear in the background a chorus of raspberries from the millions of common men to whom this high sentiments make no appeal.

But: Nevertheless the high sentiments always win in the end. Leaders who offer blood, toil and tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety first and a good time. When it comes to the pinch human beings are heroic. Women face childhood and the scrubbing brush, revolutionaries keep their mouths shut in the torture chamber, battleships go down with the guns still firing and their decks awash. It is only that the other element in man, the lazy, cowardly, debt-bilking adulterer who is inside all of us, can never be supressed altogether, and needs a hearing occasionally.” (The Art of Donald McGill) George Orwell 1941

One man’s right are another man’s shackles!

In any case, I hope it’s clear to people now, post covid, the myth of human rights has been laid to rest, superseded by what ever is the fashionable zeitgeist of the neoliberal rules based order.

We no longer have truth or the rule of law, innocence is an obsolete concept, if there is no current rule to torture the guilty the ruling elite will just invent one to facilitate your incarceration & or demise.

Their vindictive punishment for any transgression no longer stops once you’ve completed your sentence, any dissent will meet a life sentence, none of us are free!

As soon as I saw Ayn Rand mentioned I reached for my computer. Is it totalitarian and outrageous to pay ones taxes? Or to desist from dropping litter in the street, or publicly urinate in the same street? Or is it democratic to worship billionaires (who don’t even pay their alleged taxes) while the man in the street dutifully – yes dutifully – pays his taxes. Such a society would not last for very long, nor would it deserve to. The obsession with the private sector and the elimination of the public involves private sector – health for example – has been and continued to be privatised! The self-regarding must exist alongside the extra-regarding if society is to endure. There must be room for both private and public enterprise, what used to be called a ‘mixed’ economy, is alas, no longer with us. This is privatised totalitarianism. How Mrs Thatcher would agree. ”There is no such thing as society.”

This Randist view

The core of Rand’s philosophy — which also constitutes the overarching theme of her novels — is that unfettered self-interest is good and altruism is destructive. This, she believed, is the ultimate expression of human nature, the guiding principle by which one ought to live one’s life. The fly in the ointment of Rand’s philosophical “objectivism” is the plain fact that humans have a tendency to cooperate and to look out for each other, as noted by many anthropologists who study hunter-gatherers.

Students in my classes who are enamoured of Rand usually say the same thing when asked what it is about Rand’s objectivism that so strongly appeals to them: “She teaches us that we can rely on no one but ourselves.” This misguided belief in solitary self-reliance is extremely comforting because it promises an end to uncertainty: You don’t have to worry about being abandoned, betrayed, or let down if you simply never cooperate or depend on anyone else. This is a message that particularly resonates with many people since the 2008 economic meltdown when many lost their jobs, their homes, and their savings.
However alluring, however, the promise of solitary self-reliance is nothing but a sham. Like it or not, we often need to cooperate with others to achieve our goals, and we often need to depend on others simply to get through the day.

With COVID having been used as a pretext for imposing increasingly autocratic restrictions over the past two years

Two years when the Human Rights Act 1988 was law. It did not prevent the government and parliament from violating all our rights and liberties.

Mar 9, 2022 7:34 AM

There’s little point in writing to your MP. The system has them snared and they have already waived through other liberty reducing pieces of legislation, seemingly oblivious of the aggregate results. Now they are busying themselves with the Ukraine; government policies of throwing our money to help the Ukrainians fight a war that NATO initiated while also cheering on Russian sanctions which will inevitably hurt the U.K.’s poorest the most. In the blink of an eye CV19 is forgotten, there seems no inclination to investigate why such draconian measures were needed, why experimental drugs were approved or how many deaths were caused by the government itself.
The Country is sliding into permanent tyranny and there doesn’t appear to be an democratic solution. This can only end harshly.

Sharks home is the ocean
And they attack humans who invade their home.
So humans hunt down and slaughter those sharks.
Mosquitos have homes too
And they bite human intruders
So humans release genetically modified mozzies
to wipe out those home defending mozzies…

When the US general exclaimed it’s better to wipe out the Vietnamese
than let the country go communist, he was expressing the psychology
of Humanity’s War Against Nature.

Hello Off-Guardian Family

This is Teodrose (Teddy) Fikre, long time journalist who decided to run for Congress, below is the reason why, an excerpt from my campaign, hope to hear from everyone…

The fears of a black child in Chicago who has to sleep at night with gunshots ricocheting in her ears are linked to the tears of a white child in Chattanooga who goes to bed hungry. A Democrat father in a “blue state” who has to work multiple jobs to feed his family is experiencing the same anxieties as a Republican mother in a “red state” who is forced to seek welfare in order to provide for her children. In a country that is blessed with an abundance of resources and human ingenuity, the only reason we have such high rates of poverty and economic uncertainties is because too many have been convinced that others who struggle like them are their foes instead of realizing that we are all in the same leaky boat together.

I did not always realize how dissension among the populous was actually the leading factor that contributes to the “gridlock in DC” which in turn makes social progress all but impossible. There was a time when I was as divisive as they came as I bashed Republican voters and collectively judged all white people for the ills of the world. It wasn’t until I became homeless in 2015 and saw first-hand how inequality and injustice transcend the socio-political divides and come for all irrespective of our differences that I shed my tribal blinders and became determined to stand and speak up for our common humanity….continued…

Naturally, the individual’s natural rights are innate, inalienable. However, there is a right that supersedes, and this is the right of the species. Contrary to Paine’s non sequitur, governments aren’t instituted to secure the rights of the individual, but to covertly exploit the masses in the interests of the species. Governmental recognition of individual rights is thus mere virtue signalling.
Consequently, when your government not only ignores them, but officially ceases to recognise them, it should be taken as their kind warning.

Reminds one of Giorgio Agamben’s ‘State of Exception’. A treatise on Law (?). How to explain The State’s lawlessness in terms of law.. Or how The State uses lawlessness to enforce the law…
Though it could be said it explains how law is an instrument of/for domination, all considerations merely rationalisations for domination’. (Though it could be said the law is its own rationalisation)
Behind the law, force.
Upholder of the law, force.
Force’s name ? GOD

At some point the claim of authority of a government to govern disappears.. I think any act of a government, which seeks to, or actually does: limit the scope, deny the existence of, change the meaning of, or circumvent by logic <=Nature protected::human rights, instantly and forever, terminates its authority to govern. Mankind is protected by its inalienable rights from abuse of authority. Rights of mankind trump man's authority.

The American declaration of Independence 1776 (ADI-1776) separates “authority from rights”; laws of man from Laws of Nature. Because each set of laws have equal station.
According to the ADI-1776, governed humanity can use its inalienable rights to cure dissatisfaction with governing institutions; dispose the old and institute new.

There is a problem in the Bill of Rights [10 amendments established by ratification]. They are subject to removal or modification by amendment to the constitution. There is no promise not to amend and no effective system in place to deny infringement on the promise. .

I agree with your assessment.

ROTHSCHILD, IMF & WORLD BANK Have Prepared Ukraine for War Since 2014
& BILLIONS more coming

National Endowment of Democracy (NED), a CIA-backed front group for regime change abroad, is frantically deleting evidence of their illicit activities in Ukraine.

NED has greatly enriched the Ukrainian puppet government since they were put into power. They sent a total of $22,394,281 through 334 different awards granted to Ukraine between 2014 to the present day, according to an archived website that has now been scrubbed from the internet.

Additionally, Iin 2020 NED gave $4.6 million to gin up anti-Russian fervor throughout Ukraine. 

Big League Politics has reported on how the globalist power structure is propping up Ukraine with billions of internationalist money:  

Imm’y after the globalist-backed color revolution 2014 coup , Ukraine was put on the dole of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). They took $8.4 billion from the IMF in 2014, supposedly to help their economy recover from a recession, but in all likelihood, it was actually a globalist payout to the new coup government for a job well done.

Rothschild became advisor in 2017 to strengthen ties w international financial system.  At the same time they had Citi, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan handle their bonds. It is said Rothschild was hired to “manage medium-term debt liabilities.”

Amidst the Ukraine/Russia conflict, the IMF and their partners at the World Bank are once again papering over the Ukraine coup government with major cash. They are preparing a $3 billion aid package to Ukraine to keep their government propped up as NATO expansion becomes more of a possibility.

“At the World Bank Group, we are preparing a $3 billion package of support in the coming months, starting with a fast-disbursing budget support operation for at least $350 million that will be submitted to the Board for approval this week, followed by $200 million in fast-disbursing support for health and education,” the globalist institutions announced.

An additional $2.2 billion may be on the way to the Ukrainian coup government in the near future from the IMF as well.

“At the IMF, we are responding to Ukraine’s request for emergency financing through the Rapid Financing Instrument, which our Board could consider as early as next week,” they stated.

This reminds me of the run up to wwi.. The cabal expanded the British propaganda machine to Washington with intent to get Americans ready to go to war in Europe, arranged to give government power to tax people directly, and instituted a number of other laws all designed to use the incomes and resources of Americas to collateralize the loans the new fed bank would make to finance the broke nations in Europe because European nations were needed to defeat Germany and to take the oil from the Ottoman Empire. ASAE 16th amendment was done, the income tax law and the federal reserve act was put in place 1913 the big year.
Unless those of us who are the governed get a handle on this, we are going to be made to suffer another world war for their profit. John Mearsheimer said there will be consequences if you poke a bear in the eye..

this rise in oil price is designed to finance that new war.. I believe. It is going to leave both America and Europe in shambles as China becomes the new world leader.

The thing is, you can look at this (and the rest) from a different angle.

If what the author had in mind was to reverse, for example, the right of individuals to be offended on behalf of other people, and the right to report this faux offence as a hate crime because, although nobody was actually offended, someone might be, then I’m all for it.

I was hoping for a useful discussion on rights but the article degenerated into a discussion of the various public health measures taken to combat Covid. This is an unwelcome diversion; any and all societies will take measures to protect themselves, including the suspension of rights, if it feels threatened. We can argue about the validity of such measures with regard to Covid but all it does is blow smoke over the real issues.

“Human Rights” is an invention of the Cold War, a propaganda tool used to differentiate “us” from “them” that further divides the world into ‘democracies’ and ‘totalitarian’ or ‘autocratic’ governments. We’re good, they’re bad. This is unquestionably taken as Gospel truth, we know that societies like, say, Russia’s or China’s are autocratic where the population lives under the iron heel of the ruling elite yearning for freedom (et cetera). The reality is somewhat different but we don’t peer behind the curtain, we just believe what we’re told. If you’ve ever witnessed a video of a rather violent argument between Chinese shopkeepers and local police over sidewalk tables, for example, (actually, it was more of a brawl) then you’d realize that the authorities react pretty much the same globally — and in this case the reaction in the US would be a lot heavier, with broken bones if you’re lucky and injuries and even deaths if you’re not.

We in the US have baked into our Constitution a Bill of Rights which spells out exactly what the government can and cannot do. Although these rights are absolute it doesn’t take into account how these rights are interpreted and enforced which is how we can end up with egregious abuses like systematic racism and an apparent two tier justice system. The reason for this is obvious — its the “Who Watches the Watchmen?” question. Money talks, and it can afford the best speakers. It can also buy power — governments are purchasable, especially in our kind of democracy, and a strategy to control both the judiciary and the electoral process is currently how a minority wields power in our democracy. The only guarantee of freedom is mass awareness and a refusal to swallow the propaganda that’s pumped at you 24/7/365. (Even that only works at a personal level.) Ultimately you have to remember that people in general have never been granted rights, they have had to fight for them and they need to fight to keep them. Its a constant struggle because in my lifetime I’ve seen an entire country conned out of its post-war prosperity — people assume that because they’ve got color screens that they’re well off, even as many find themselves living on the edge with few, if any, prospects for the future.

(Incidentally, don’t quote Ayn Rand as a beacon of freedom and libertarianism. She was born a Russian petite-borgeious and managed a relatively successful career post-Revolution before moving to the US. She wrote fiction — a world of strongmen based on heroic deeds using an unrealistic vision of science and society. Great stories for adolescents — its a sort of political Harry Potter — but nothing to do with real life.)

People that aren’t corrupt wouldn’t have allowed almost every war and don’t desire to control other people and ruin lives.

It is sad to watch slaves beg their masters for a sliver of their freedom back. Only when people come to realize that the core problem underneath all of this is their enslavement, and the core solution to all of this is their freedom, will they truly understand their situation and perhaps be in a position to do something about it.

Freedom is not achieved by whinging, wheedling, begging, or otherwise placating those who would be our masters. Appeasement has never worked and it isn’t going to suddenly start now.

The people who claim to represent and “govern” you are your enemies. They have declared war on you and your family and your children. They are winning the war because they have you so turned around that you don’t even know that you’re in a war, or that you’re losing, and most people will never realize this fact, and will return to the Earth full of poison in their bodies and in their minds, never having fulfilled their one true purpose here in Earth which is to live and to grow and to reproduce and to flourish, and that is the true tragedy and the true violation of God’s will or whatever you want to call it. The true Evil. And as I say, it is sad to watch.

The moment rights became codified the game was over. My right to exist is not contained within or guaranteed by a piece of parchment. My right to exist is predicated upon the existential necessity of existing. Nature does not grant existence without a corresponding imperative to exist.

The “right” to exist is nothing more than a recognition of that imperative nature both confers and demands. Therefore to refuse me the right to exist is an affront to and a declaration of war against existence itself.

“We do not accept the primacy of existence any longer. We therefore place our will above all existence. We shall make of existence a document in which we shall specify which elements of existence humanity may retain. Signed, sealed and delivered, The State.”

But being “dumb like a fox” they get it, so they move on to the next crisis. They know it’s a game; and they just want to be in the game, not left on the sidelines.

They, of course, fail completely to realize they are the ball being kicked around.

What ever happened to Due Process?

Due process developed from clause 39 of Magna Carta in England. Reference to due process first appeared in a statutory rendition of clause 39 in 1354 thus: “No man of what state or condition he be, shall be put out of his lands or tenements nor taken, nor disinherited, nor put to death, without he be brought to answer by due process of law.”[3] When English and American law gradually diverged, due process was not upheld in England but became incorporated in the US Constitution.

Due process accepts the principle that there are occasions when the individual (or group) may be deprived of rights, but that the application of that procedure must follow a defined set of consistent and rational rules. So, we need a statement near the top of the Bill of Rights saying something like: No deprivation of rights without Due Process.

Academy of Ideas explains How the “Greater Good” Is Used as a Tool of Social Control:

The Academy of Ideas, trading as the Institute of Ideas*, is an organisation set up by former members of the Revolutionary Communist Party, formerly a Trotskyite sect. It is currently associated with Spiked magazine, a successor to LM, formerly Living Marxism.

Its “libertarian” principles usually involve conclusions which benefit tobacco, Big Pharma and the oil companies, not surprising when it is bankrolled by the Koch brothers.

Its leading light is Lady Clare Fox a supporter of terrorism in the UK.

*It doesn’t meet the criteria for registering as an institute.

All left-right orgs are the same tentacles of the one banking cartel. Try to catch up. Terrorism is the government, so “Lady Clare” is part of the network of “government” that manufactures and funds fake terror.

Academy of Ideas is yet another NGO front like ALL Political Orgs. The cryptocracy don’t want anyone understanding all politics and economics is nonsense. It’s a cover for central banker control of the world.

All Marxism is Masonsy. All Free Markets is Masonry. All libertarianism is Masonry. All Capitalism is Masonry. All Facism is Masonry. It’s dualism. The Hegelian Dialectic. Thesis vs Antithesis. Red vs Blue. Good cop/Bad cop. Two sides of the same coin.

It doesn’t matter which political or economic system is in place as long as the central banks are privately owned, and they are. Every single one. Nobody can audit them or any governments. Not even your local, incorporated municipality. The public are not shareholders and have no legal standing. Ergo, none of these institutions are public. The public has no ownership or control of any of the faux authorities, anywhere.

Manipulating the minds of men with fake, algorithm written, scripted news while the bankers control the world through the monetary system by printing digital dollars at will, creating debt slaves and taxpayers through legal fiction ALL CAPS government ID and birth certificates. The birth certificates are bonded, traded and underwritten, financial instruments. As are social security accounts.

The central and retail banks charge the public interest on the National AND individual debt, expanding the debt, devaluing each currency, controlling, owning and directing governments to be the slave masters. Thereby, controlling all the debt slaves on earth through all the governments, which are owned lock stock and barrel by the banking-merchant-military cartel.

Every debt cycle and currency bubble must be deflated. And this is where the orchestrated financial crashes, and orchestrated wars come into play.

Every war on earth, is orchestrated by the banking cartel as a fear and control mechanism, to enable sets of pre-determined, pre-planned specific goals and outcomes. It keeps the people believing in the artificial borders and the appearance of separate administrations, fake fighting.

A monolithic control mechanism using countless, incorporated (legal fictions) subsidiaries.

The HRA is a bit of a smokescreen in my opinion. Everything will not be okay if the UK retains the HRA as is.

The HRA incorporated the ECHR into UK law. There are mutiple problems with the ECHR. It was written by a British civil servant after WW2. The state can issue an derogation from every right except freedom from torture (which states deal with by the expedient of re-definition). Did the ECHR provide any protection against convid? Have the French, Germans and Austrians been so much better off? The manifest fact that it’s made no difference shows the issue is something of a red herring. The bigger issue is, as Corbett has rightly identified, states of emergency and continuity of government protocols – and the HRA provides no protection against these because they are grounds for derogations. The UK is still subject to the EHR with or without the HRA – the only difference is UK citizens cannot get their rights through UK courts and have to go to Strasbourg. All not amending the HRA will do is make it easier for the UK to rejoin the EU.

A further problem with the HRA and the ECHR it incorporates are the lack of any real teeth. It relies on “embarrassment” and piddling fines. If politicians are beyond embarrassment the former doesn’t work. The latter are paid by taxpayers and are just lines on a balance sheet. Have fines – much bigger ones than the ECHR imposes – stopped Big Pharma? Find me the politicians and CEOs in prison. The ECHR follows the British establishment’s Magna Carta model of rights as propaganda – they are there to delude people into believing they live in a free society while giving no legally-enforceable rights (and such rights they give turn out to be in reality for the oligarchs).

Finally, there is the problem that any legal redress has been deliberately made inordinately complex, expensive and time-consuming. None of the legal cases against convid have gone anywhere. The Met announced last week they won’t be investigating one high profile case. The Met’s Deputy Commissioner is Sajid Javed’s brother. This is how things work, not bits of paper. Michael O’Bernicia’s case has gone nowhere in two years. Reiner Fuellmich looks more and more like a freemasonic operation.

I would concede that they wouldn’t be spending time doing this unless there’s some nefarious purpose. Until the precise detail comes out, it’s hard to say what that is. However from what I’ve outlined, the purpose is likely to be one more of propaganda and throwing a sop to the right than anything much of substance.

Absolutely agree E.

It’s quite clear that ‘authorities’ are able to do anything with impunity whether these legal niceties exist or not.

Perhaps the point of the three pieces of legislation in the UK – HRA reform, online harms, and the other one specifically indemnifying state employees from prosecution due to carrying out any criminal act – is to reassure the functionaries and the colluders, and thus remove any potential psychological barrier or attack of conscience.

If it’s not in contravention of any law or code, it’s easier to maintain the pretence of morality and remove the possibility that anyone may feel the imperative to challenge.

Bill of Rights:

2. The government’s 2019 manifesto pledged to:
‘[…] update the Human Rights Act and administrative law to ensure there
is a proper balance between the rights of individuals, our vital national
security and effective government.’

The NS-GOTF (National Security – Get Out Of Jail Free) card is prominent. Who doesn’t like the good old National Security card being played?

I wonder, relation to the Dawn Sturgess Public Enquiry, lends itself to being just an example of a legal public kabuki theatre for the mases, litered with good old fashioned NS-GOTF cards, worthy of a littering fine?

I wonder if the Skripals are themselves the benefitiary of ‘kidnap’ under the guise of some secret National Security law?
