Pathologized Totalitarianism 101

So, GloboCap has crossed the Rubicon. The ultimate part of its transformation of society right into a pathologized-totalitarian dystopia, the place necessary genetic-therapy injections and digital compliance papers are commonplace, is now formally underway. On November 19, 2021, the federal government of New Regular Austria decreed that, as of February, experimental mRNA injections shall be necessary for all the inhabitants.

This decree comes within the midst of Austria’s official persecution of “the Unvaccinated,” i.e., political dissidents and different individuals of conscience who refuse to transform to the brand new official ideology and undergo a sequence of mRNA injections, purportedly to fight a virus that causes mild-to-moderate flu-like signs (or no signs of any sort in any respect) in about 95% of the contaminated and the general an infection fatality charge of which is roughly 0.1% to 0.5%.

Austria is simply the tip of the New Regular spear. Outstanding New-Regular fascists in Germany, like Der Führer of Bavaria, Markus Söder, and Minister of Propaganda Karl Lauterbach, are already calling for an allgemeine Impfpflicht (i.e., “obligatory vaccination requirement”), which mustn’t come as a shock to anybody.

The Germans aren’t going sit idly by and let the Austrians publicly out-fascist them, are they? They’ve a status to uphold, in any case! Italy will most likely be subsequent to affix in, except Lithuania or Australia beats them to the punch.

However, significantly, that is only the start of the Winter Siege I wrote about just lately. The plan appears to be to New-Normalize Europe first — typically talking, Europeans are extra docile, respectful of all authority, and never very nicely armed — after which use it as leverage to power the brand new pathologized totalitarianism on the USA, and the UK, and the remainder of the world.

I don’t consider this plan will succeed. Regardless of probably the most intensive propaganda marketing campaign within the historical past of propaganda campaigns, there stay sufficient of us who steadfastly refuse to simply accept the “New Regular” as our new actuality. And a number of us are indignant, extraordinarily indignant … militantly, explosively indignant.

We’re not “vaccine hesitant” or “anti-vax” or “Covid-denying conspiracy theorists.” We’re tens of millions of normal working-class folks, folks with ideas, who worth freedom, who aren’t ready to go gently into the globalized, pathologized-totalitarian evening.

We not give the slightest shit whether or not our former family and friends members who’ve gone New Regular perceive what that is. We do. We perceive precisely what that is. It’s a nascent type of totalitarianism, and we intend to kill it — or no less than critically wound it — earlier than it matures right into a full-grown behemoth.

Now, I need to be completely clear. I’m not advocating or condoning violence. However it’s going to occur. It’s taking place already. Totalitarianism (even this “pathologized” model of it) is imposed on society and maintained with violence.

Preventing totalitarianism inevitably entails violence. It isn’t my most popular tactic within the present circumstances, however it’s unavoidable now that we have reached this stage, and it’s important that these of us preventing this battle acknowledge that violence is a pure response to the violence (and the implicit menace of violence) that’s being deployed in opposition to us by the New Regular authorities, and the lots they’ve whipped up right into a fanatical frenzy.

It is usually essential (important, I’d argue) to make the violence of the New Regular seen, i.e., to border this battle in political phrases, and never within the pseudo-medical phrases propagated by the official Covid narrative). This is not an educational argument over the existence, severity, or the response to a virus. This can be a battle to find out the way forward for our societies.

This truth, above all, is what the global-capitalist ruling courses are decided to hide. The roll-out of the New Regular will fail whether it is perceived as political (i.e., a type of totalitarianism). It depends on our incapacity to see it as what it’s. So it hides itself and the violence it perpetrates inside a pseudo-medical official narrative, rendering itself proof against political opposition.

We have to deny it this perceptual redoubt, this hermeneutic hiding place. We have to make it present itself as what it’s, a “pathologized” type of totalitarianism. With a view to do this, we have to perceive it … its inside logic, and its strengths, and weaknesses.

Pathologized Totalitarianism

I’ve been describing the New Regular as “pathologized totalitarianism” and predicting that obligatory “vaccination” was coming since no less than as early as Could 2020. (See, e.g., The New Pathologized Totalitarianism). I take advantage of the time period “totalitarianism” deliberately, not for impact, however for the sake of accuracy. The New Regular continues to be a nascent totalitarianism, however its essence is unmistakably evident. I described that essence in a latest column:

“The essence of totalitarianism — no matter which costumes and beliefs it wears — is a need to fully management society, each facet of society, each particular person conduct and thought.

Each totalitarian system, whether or not a whole nation, a tiny cult, or every other type of social physique, evolves towards this unachievable objective … the overall ideological transformation and management of each single factor of society … This fanatical pursuit of complete management, absolute ideological uniformity, and the elimination of all dissent, is what makes totalitarianism totalitarianism.”

In October 2020, I printed The Covidian Cult, which has since grown right into a sequence of essays analyzing New-Regular (i.e., pathologized) totalitarianism as “a cult writ massive, on a societal scale.” This analogy holds true for all types of totalitarianism, however particularly for New Regular totalitarianism, as it’s the first world type of totalitarianism in historical past, and thus:

“The cult/tradition paradigm has been inverted. As an alternative of the cult current as an island throughout the dominant tradition, the cult has grow to be the dominant tradition, and people of us who haven’t joined the cult have grow to be the remoted islands inside it.”

In The Covidian Cult (Half III), I famous:

“With a view to oppose this new type of totalitarianism, we have to perceive the way it each resembles and differs from earlier totalitarian methods.

The similarities are pretty apparent — i.e., the suspension of constitutional rights, governments ruling by decree, official propaganda, public loyalty rituals, the outlawing of political opposition, censorship, social segregation, goon squads terrorizing the general public, and so forth — however the variations aren’t as apparent.”

And I described how New Regular totalitarianism essentially differs from Twentieth-Century totalitarianism by way of its ideology, or seeming lack thereof.

“Whereas Twentieth-Century totalitarianism was roughly nationwide and overtly political, New Regular totalitarianism is supranational, and its ideology is way more delicate. The New Regular will not be Nazism or Stalinism. It is global-capitalist totalitarianism, and world capitalism does not have an ideology, technically, or, moderately, its ideology is ‘actuality’.”

However probably the most vital distinction between Twentieth-Century totalitarianism and this nascent, world totalitarianism is how New Regular totalitarianism “pathologizes” its political nature, successfully rendering itself invisible, and thus proof against political opposition. Whereas Twentieth-Century totalitarianism wore its politics on its sleeve, New Regular totalitarianism presents itself as a non-ideological (i.e., supra-political) response to a worldwide public well being emergency.

And, thus, its basic totalitarian options — e.g., the revocation of fundamental rights and freedoms, centralization of energy, rule by decree, oppressive policing of the inhabitants, demonization and persecution of a “scapegoat” underclass, censorship, propaganda, and many others. — aren’t hidden, as a result of they’re inconceivable to cover, however are recontextualized in a pathologized official narrative.

The Untermenschen grow to be “the Unvaccinated.” Swastika lapel pins grow to be medical-looking masks. Aryan ID papers grow to be “vaccination passes.” Irrefutably mindless social restrictions and necessary public-obedience rituals grow to be “lockdowns,” “social distancing,” and so forth. The world is united in a Goebbelsian complete warfare, not in opposition to an exterior enemy (i.e., a racial or political enemy), however in opposition to an inside, pathological enemy.

This pathologized official narrative is extra highly effective (and insidious) than any ideology, because it features, not as a perception system or ethos, however moderately, as goal “actuality.” You can’t argue with or oppose “actuality.” “Actuality” has no political opponents.

Those that problem “actuality” are “insane,” i.e., “conspiracy theorists,” “anti-vaxxers,” “Covid deniers,” “extremists,” and many others. And, thus, the pathologized New Regular narrative additionally pathologizes its political opponents, concurrently stripping us of political legitimacy and projecting its personal violence onto us.

Twentieth-Century totalitarianism additionally blamed its violence on its scapegoats (i.e., Jews, socialists, counter-revolutionaries, and many others.) but it surely didn’t try and erase its violence. Quite the opposite, it displayed it overtly, with a purpose to terrorize the lots. New Regular totalitarianism can not do that. It will probably’t go overtly totalitarian, as a result of capitalism and totalitarianism are ideologically contradictory.

International-capitalist ideology is not going to perform as an official ideology in an overtly totalitarian society. It requires the simulation of “democracy,” or no less than a simulation of market-based “freedom.” A society may be intensely authoritarian, however, to perform within the global-capitalist system, it should permit its folks the fundamental “freedom” that capitalism affords to all shoppers, the best/obligation to take part out there, to personal and alternate commodities, and many others.

This “freedom” may be conditional or extraordinarily restricted, but it surely should exist to a point. Saudi Arabia and China are two examples of overtly authoritarian GloboCap societies which are however not solely totalitarian, as a result of they can not be and stay part of the system.

Their marketed official ideologies (i.e., Islamic fundamentalism and communism) mainly perform as superficial overlays on the elemental global-capitalist ideology which dictates the “actuality” by which everybody lives. These “overlay” ideologies aren’t faux, however once they come into battle with global-capitalist ideology, guess which ideology wins.

The purpose is, New Regular totalitarianism — and any global-capitalist type of totalitarianism — can not show itself as totalitarianism, and even authoritarianism. It can not acknowledge its political nature. With a view to exist, it should not exist.

Above all, it should erase its violence (the violence that every one politics finally comes right down to) and seem to us as an basically beneficent response to a authentic “world well being disaster” (and a “local weather change disaster,” and a “racism disaster,” and no matter different “world crises” GloboCap thinks will terrorize the lots right into a senseless, order-following hysteria).

This pathologization of totalitarianism — and the political/ideological battle we have now been engaged in for the previous 20 months — is probably the most vital distinction between New Regular totalitarianism and Twentieth-Century totalitarianism. Your entire global-capitalist equipment (i.e., companies, governments, supranational entities, the company and state media, academia, and many others.) has been put into service to realize this goal.

We have to come to phrases with this truth. We do. Not the New Normals. Us. GloboCap is on the verge of remaking society right into a smiley-happy pathologized-totalitarian dystopia the place they’ll mandate experimental genetic “therapies,” and every other kind of “therapies” they need, and power us to indicate our “compliance papers” to go about probably the most fundamental facets of life.

This remaking of society is violent. It’s being carried out by power, with violence and the ever-present menace of violence. We have to face that, and act accordingly. Right here in New Regular Germany, when you attempt to go grocery buying and not using a medical-looking masks, armed police will take away you from the premises (and I’m saying this from private expertise). In New Regular Australia, when you go to synagogue, the media shall be alerted and the police will encompass you.

In Germany, Australia, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium, and plenty of different international locations, when you train your proper to assemble and protest, the police will hose you down with water cannons, shoot you with rubber bullets (and typically actual bullets), spray poisonous brokers into your eyes, and simply typically beat the crap out of you.

And so forth. These of us preventing for our rights and opposing this pathologized totalitarianism are all-too acquainted with the fact of its violence, and the hatred it has fomented within the New Regular lots. We expertise it each day.

We really feel it each time we’re pressured to put on a masks, when some official (or waiter) calls for to see our “papers.” We really feel it when once we are threatened by our authorities, once we are gaslighted and demonized by the media, by docs, celebrities, random strangers, and by our colleagues, pals, and members of the family.

We acknowledge the look of their eyes. We keep in mind the place it comes from, and what it results in. It is not simply ignorance, mass hysteria, confusion, or an overreaction, or concern … or, OK, sure, it’s all these issues, but it surely’s additionally textbook totalitarianism (however the brand new pathologized twist). Totalitarianism 101. Look it within the eye, and act accordingly.
