Australia has now become more totalitarian than North Korea. A military-style police force that resembles something from a Dystopian movie is patrolling the streets, with anyone caught breaking lockdown rules brutally punished. The government has implemented Martial Law by De Facto, imposed under the pretence of a health policy.
Ask yourself, when were armoured cars and rubber bullets last needed to improve public health?
Even Communist China, who convinced the world that oppression could be a response to a virus didn't go this far. A humanitarian crisis is happening right now, in a western country, and yet the media have ignored it entirely.
Authorities have imposed a marshal law using the feeblist of excuses. A single Covid Case triggered the most draconian lockdown in the entire world. Thousands of troops were drafted in to major cities, roadblocks were set up preventing escape, mandatory testing and mask-wearing indoors and outdoors with stormtrooper style 'Police' going house-to-house to check that residents are obeying the rules, Helicopters are flying overhead with loudspeakers announcing : “This is a public health order – do not break rules – you will be found and fines issued.”
Whilst the world turned a blind eye, Australian technocrats implemented a silent coup. Under the pretence that there was a killer virus outside they began locking people up for the crime of being healthy, arresting protesters, pepper spraying kids, beating up grannies, banning books and electronic messages, censoring social media, sending threatening letters, forcing small businesses to close, urging people to dob in dissenters and banning safe drugs that have worked for 60 years in their eagerness to oppress innocent people.
When the public peacefully demonstrated against the government they were met with a brutal crackdown by police who used armoured cars, batons, and kettling techniques and shot rubber bullets into the crowd. All for the 'crime' of disagreeing with the government.
Whilst anyone who wakes up and realises that they are being oppressed by a totalitarian government those good little citizens still asleep are rewarded for their compliance with extra “freedoms”. To qualify they complied with, and continue to comply with, the vaccination programme. Citizens who can prove their dedication to the cause will be allowed to 'leave home for an hour of recreation on top of their exercise hour.'
Recent freedom marches are now showing what happens to citizens who exercise their democratic right to protest: people are demonised, hunted down; whilst the media vilifies them to discourage others from questioning the control state.
List of Dystopian Traits Now Scarily Close to Real Life
Are we now living in the type of Dystopian World Orwell warned us about? With every passing week there's a new dictat, a new politically-correct phrase or a new science 'emergency' all moving us in one direction; towards a Dystopian Society. Some think we're not just moving towards it, we've already arrived.
University courses on Sociology rarely touch on the idea of a Dystopian world. This is probably because, in a recent poll, 81% of American University Professors in the Social Sciences identified themselves as Marxists. What we would think of as a dystopian nightmare, they think of as a Marxist Utopia. The idea of a Dystopian society is taught in modern universities but only in English literature classes. It is there that we can see what a dystopian world is really like, immortalised by such people as Orwell, and Philip K. Dick.
In a textbook provided to English Literature students the description of a dystopia resembles more than a few characteristics of our current society:
Dystopia: A futuristic, imagined universe in which oppressive societal control, and the illusion of a perfect society, are maintained through corporate, bureaucratic, technological, moral or totalitarian control.
It goes on to give a list of Characteristics of a Dystopian Society:
Propaganda is used to control society.
Information, independent thought, and freedom are restricted.
A figurehead or concept is worshipped by the citizens of that society.
Citizens are perceived to be under constant surveillance.
Citizens are in fear of the outside world.
Citizens live in a dehumanised state.
The natural world is banished and distrusted.
Citizens must conform to uniform expectations. individuality and dissent are bad.
The society is an illusion of a perfect utopian world.
The textbook goes on to say
Types of Dystopian Controls
Most dystopian works present a world in which oppressive societal control and the illusion of a perfect society are maintained through one or more of the following types of controls:
Corporate control: One or more large corporations control society through products, advertising and/or the media.
Bureaucratic control: Society is controlled by a mindless bureaucracy through a tangle of red tape, relentless regulations, and incompetent government officials.
Technological control: Society is controlled by technology - through computers, robots or scientific means.
We only have to look at what is currently happening in our society to see that most, if not all, of these dystopian characteristics are already embedded in our society. The difference from the literary world to our reality is it is a combination of all these characteristics, not a single one, that controls our lives.
'Knowledge is controlled by one or more large media corporations': The BBC, CNN etc pump-out endless propaganda controlling what we think, whilst Facebook, Twitter and YouTube erase descent and independent thought.
’Citizens are under constant surveillance': Britain had, going into this pandemic, more CCTV cameras than any other country on earth but now also has Police flying drones with facial recognition, cameras monitoring to see if we're following the rules, and the government tracking and tracing our every move via our mobile phones.
'Citizens are in fear of the outside world': The threat from Covid-19 has been vastly exaggerated instilling fear and panic in the public. In response to that fear they created technocrats promised to save the public in return for sweeping new powers. Lord Sumption described this in a recent interview thus: "The real problem is that when human societies lose their freedom, it’s not usually because tyrants have taken it away. It’s usually because people willingly surrender their freedom in return for protection against some external threat. And the threat is usually a real threat, but usually exaggerated"
'Citizens must conform to uniform expectations. individuality and dissent are bad': We have all seen just how terrifying the cancel-culture is, and how any descent, original thought, or even just scientific debate is now attacked. Say anything about transgender women, climate change, or the NHS and watch the citizens of Dystopia have their 'two minutes of hate'.
