Social engineering – “Rage, rage against the dying of the light”

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’.

To extract from words of Dylan Thomas:

Do not go gentle into that good night…Rage, rage against the dying of the light…

The ‘democratic media’

Over recent years, I have noticed a significant increase in TV and radio programmes that have a ‘message’ for us. Whether it is The Archers (currently ‘pushing’ health, excessive drinking and ‘gay parenting’) or, say, Below The Surface (about the kidnapping of Danish citizens for ransom and ‘highlighting’ PTSD in the Danish army)…incidentally, the latter was postponed by the BBC last night, apparently out of respect to the events in France, despite continuing with programmes such as Troy, which featured far more potentially upsetting issues. Both these programmes are broadcast via the BBC (BBC Four and BBC Radio 4) and there are many many more examples from this monopoly media organisation which is funded by us. I find it very difficult to find any programme (especially from The BBC) that does not have one or more of these subliminal (or usually much more obvious) ‘messages’ that are often about minority issues. Try watching from now on with this particular ‘critical eye’.

Before anyone points out that, for example, The Archers has always done this, that is to some limited extent true, however, not on this scale and certainly not within the much wider flooding of our lives from all channels and all media providers. In any case, in the past, it has been more about ‘education’ than ‘brainwashing’.

Other issues are the disproportionate (to the population) airing of certain themes and scenarios. For example it is difficult to find anything that does not have some ‘arabic’ content or connection these days. Even programmes set in places far removed from the Middle East, have some sub-plot in or connected to an arabic country, communities or individuals, one recent example being 13 Commandments.

So my question is, who decides to ‘brainwash’ us with this ‘propaganda’ (especially within the BBC) and on what basis is there any democratic control or accountability? If our democratic government decided to put out a ‘public information broadcast’, then that is very different.
