    2019: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning?
    by Seneca III


    It has been a fascinating year all round as in so many ways prevailing ideological and political dams cracked and started to leak once the sacred cows from which they had been constructed began to be herded towards metaphorical slaughterhouses weeping and squealing. Some of these sacred cows I will itemise below.
    First, though, and surprisingly after so many years of censorship and suppression, it is now observable that the public and private commentariat — particularly in the UK where the protections of a First Amendment do not exist — have regained confidence in themselves, lost their fear of persecution and prosecution for speaking truth to power and in ever larger numbers loudly iterate the obvious and the previously unsayable. It is possible that they have subliminally realised the strength that there is to be found in numbers.
    To continue: As the mutative process of non-existent ‘Global Warming’ evolved first into ‘Climate Change’ and then, as it became apparent that more and more of the educated and sane public at large refused to buy into this iniquitous project, its self-serving constructors desperately reconstructed the prevailing meme and delivered it as the form of hysteria labelled ‘Climate Emergency’ only to be derided further after the contrived appearance of a sixteen-year-old autistic child programmed to pollute the minds of a generation of young children whilst being paraded as an icon of salvation fell flat on its face.

    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium.
    I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

    I think you understood what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard was not what I meant.
