In recent weeks I have come to the conclusion that we in the UK are being actively socially engineered. I don’t believe that this is a recent phenomenon and do believe that this brainwashing began to accelerate, probably in the late 60s, when we began to be brainwashed right across the spectrum. Whether culturally, in accepting, for example, that the vast majority of so-called pop music had any artistic merit – which by any musical analysis is doesn’t – or in terms of more profound issues that have changed more quickly than at any time in history driven by (our) ‘wants’…and not (our) needs. This list might also include contraception, our acquisitive tendencies, abortion, divorce, the law, education, (demise of) religion and other traditions that have upheld us for many centuries.
Worse still and whilst we are so self-absorbed and ‘navel-gazing’ on the issue of Brexit, if you take a step back, it is obvious that the media – and especially the BBC – have stepped into this void and, with their left-leaning stance on many traditional issues and more importably values carefully curated over centuries, have contributed to even more acceleration, largely through the ‘back door’ and often fairly subliminally. Add this to the initiatives from Jeremy Corbyn and his Marxist followers and you have all the ingredients for a massive cultural and social shift that will change things for the worse and for ever – or until there is a sizeable cataclysm of some order or other.
Despite some thought, I cannot see that this is being driven by one person or organisation and therefore conclude that it is one of those unfortunate coincidences that occur throughout history and with the added catalyst of, for example, social media, we now have a pace and scale not seen before. If one looks across various platforms and at the views of ‘normal’ and ‘sensible’ liberal people from both the ‘left’ and ‘right’ it seems clear that there is a void emerging that would, in one form or other, recognise (that) this (is) social engineering. Much like Brexit, it is understood but there is no clarity and possibly fear of the issues or the consequences and so, what I believe to be a ‘majority’, are ‘frozen in the headlights’. With no traditional ‘safety-nets’ such as religion or trust in the law and Parliament to fall back on, we are indeed ‘frozen’.
