I have been kind of sensitive in the last days. I have seen a lot happening before my eyes and all these things are impossible to digest. However, I might give you (and give myself) several clues of the Unfairness I see in the Free World.
These are signs of Totalitarianism in the Free World:
- The Establishment starts to speak about "The Enemy Within" and "The Enemy Outside". We are all different and hatred must not be fatted like a calf by the Rulers in order to impose an Idea. Where´s the Enemy anyway? Is it The One who thinks different than us? Is it a Sin to be different?
- The Government slowly kills Free Speech and calls Free-Thinkers "Enemies of the State".
- The Government uses the Official Structure to pursue, to hunt for the "Enemies of the State". Government instead of Public Servants becomes "Public Attackers".
- Establishment prepares "Black Lists" based only on Subjective and Non-Trustworthy "Reports". The right to be heard and defend oneself slowly (or quickly) disappears.
- The Politics of Fear is Sown in the Souls of Peoples.
- There is the Rule of DOUBLE STANDARD. The Government (Institutions, Organizations) asks for the others (Nations, Individuals, Institutions) things they are not bound to fulfill or accomplish. Hipocrisy?
- An alternate system of "Punishment" is established. As Naomi Wolf said "a Gulag", at first used for "The Enemy Outside", then for "The Enemy Within", and perhaps someday for the "Enemies of State".
They came for the Communists, and I didn't object,
because I wasn't a Communist;
They came for the Socialists, and I didn't object,
because I wasn't a Socialist;
They came for the labor leaders, and I didn't object, because I wasn't a labor leader;
They came for the Jews, and I didn't object,
because I wasn't a Jew;
They came for the Catolics, and I didn't object,
because I wasn't a Catolic;
Then they came for me -
And there was no one left to object.
(Martin Niemöller - German Protestant Pastor prisioned at Dachau)
MAY DAY! There is still more to come... Help me figure it out
