In this episode, I open with a reminder of how a ruling party can rise to an autocratic regime. The steps are relatively simple. First, you declare your opposition as an enemy. This can be done by vilifying them via labeling along with the assistance of a complicit legacy media. With the narrative established and propaganda in place, it’s time to manufacture a crisis. The crisis pits your enemies as a national emergency to the state. Once the crisis is in place, sweeping and supposedly temporary emergency actions are invoked to control the “crisis” and remove your enemy from the playing field.
When the first round of dissent is censored, quelled and removed, it will be that much harder for the next round of citizens to stand. They will have seen their rights stripped and an all-powerful government standing over them. Why battle in the area of ideas when it’s easier to label your opposition as an enemy, declare an emergency and then crush them? It doesn’t matter if they have legitimate issues or even facts on their side. If you dare go against the established narrative, you will be made to suffer the consequences.
This is what is happening in real-time in Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal Party will not tolerate dissent that goes against their agenda. Even with the “uprising” quelled, he will not say when the Emergencies Act will be rescinded. There are more assets to confiscate, more accounts to freeze, more fear to inject into the people to teach them a hard lesson. The rise of the autocracy is happening before our very eyes.
We see this happening in our own country in the presidency of Joe Biden. It’s been well documented that Biden chose to ignore the advice of his military commanders in the retreat from Afghanistan. The debacle ensued. He didn’t want to hear a contrarian point of view. He already has all the answers. Even the former Defense Secretary under President Obama, Robert Gates, said Joe Biden has been wrong on nearly every foreign policy decision in the last 40 years. And let’s not forget President Obama caught on a hot mic saying, “Never underestimate Joe Biden’s ability to F things up.”
It doesn’t matter to a Leftist. They will not engage in the arena of ideas. They would rather label parents as domestic terrorists. They are moving to label players in new media as domestic terrorists with the online spread of mis- dis- and mal- information. Remember, it does not matter if what’s been said is correct, factual and verifiable, you may not go against the approved narrative. To do so will get you labeled as an enemy of the state and your rights will no longer be existent.
Remember, elites don’t want the people to have all the information. They do not want information sources decentralized. They want to control the information and therefor the narrative. The patterns throughout history are there to see if you are truly willing to open your eyes to the rising tide of autocracy.
