The Three Easy Steps to Dictatorship-by Culture Watch

We still see politicians exploiting corona to serve their grab for more power:

If the past 10 or 11 months have taught us anything, it is this: If you ever wondered how tyranny could come to the West; if you ever wondered how our basic human rights and freedoms could be stolen away from us; if you ever wondered how the state could take total control; well, now we know.

We know full well how it works. We have lived through it. We have seen it happening with our own eyes. It is upon us as we speak. The corona crisis has provided the perfect excuse for all this to happen – and it has happened with incredible ease. Here is the quick and easy three-step process that we have been witnessing:

One. The state manufactures or exploits a crisis or emergency.
Two. The state and the media hyper-inflate the fear, magnify the alarmism, and peddle the panic-porn.
Three. The masses fully buy the panic and succumb to the fear, and readily – even happily – do whatever they are told with no questions asked.

And there you go. This is your perfect storm for instant tyranny. This is how you willingly and gladly give away all your freedoms and basic human rights. This is indeed how it ends. Instead of learning to live with a virus which may have at worst a one per cent fatality rate, we have become a nation of sheeple in full-blown panic and terror.

We see this happening week after week in Australia. Indeed, almost every day we encounter a new indication of this madness from our power-drunk leaders – and a willingness to go along with it by the masses. Here are just a few recent examples of this:

-One case – just one case – of corona is found in Perth, and the entire state is sent into lockdown with the compulsory mask-wearing and so on, and other states such as Victoria yet again restrict travel to WA.

-Victoria has not had any cases for a month, yet the dictator running things there, Dan Andrews, tells us that we must live in the state of emergency for at least another four weeks.

-The panic-pushing Premier of Queensland absolutely wrecked her state economically – and in other ways – with her idiotic and senseless border closures, and now she is begging taxpayers and the federal government to bail her out.

-We have just learned that the hotel quarantine staff in Melbourne were paid nearly $80 million of our tax dollars to do absolutely nothing over a 5-month period last year!

-The Andrews government spent $8 million of our tax dollars on legal fees at the hotel quarantine inquiry, $2 million more than the inquiry itself!

-Instead of being one nation, Australia has become a bunch of competing nations, a bunch of petty fiefdoms, with each premier trying to outdo the other in acting like a mini-Hitler.

The list goes on and on. We have clearly seen how most Australian political leaders – as in much of the rest of the West – are nothing more than wannabe tyrants and dictators who are absolutely drunk on power and control. They utterly love being able to lord it over everyone else.

And of course the lessons of history are perfectly clear on all this. When control-freak rulers take away our liberties and infringe upon our basic rights, they are loath to undo what they have done. The more power they have, and the more freedoms they strip away from the citizenry, the more they want.

The lust for power is a drug, and it is never satisfied. The more control these would-be dictators have, the more they crave. But just as bad is the brainless panic and fear of the masses. I have never seen so much madness in my life. I have heard so many sheeple fully defending this crackdown of freedom and this attack on human rights.

With all this going on, I for one despair greatly for where we are headed. But some others care as well – not many, sadly, but they do exist. Various voices have been speaking out strongly here and overseas about the way governments have been overreacting to things, throwing us all into draconian lockdowns, and not even caring that our freedoms are being taken away from us.

In the UK for example one thinks of people like Brendan O’Neill and Peter Hitchens who have been speaking out on this madness all along. I have quoted both of them often over the past year. And thankfully here in Australia a number of voices have been heard, warning where all this is headed.

And we now have a number of these voices brought together in one volume. Perth law professor Augusto Zimmermann has edited a collection of extremely important articles entitled Fundamental Rights in the Age of COVID-19 (Connor Court, 2020).

Each of the authors could be discussed and cited here, but let me concentrate on Dr Zimmermann’s chapter, and offer three quotes from it:

Since March 2020 Australia’s governments, both federal and state, are using their powers to excessively coerce, obstruct or otherwise unreasonably interfere with the life, liberty and property of the citizen. What these governments are doing is nothing but profoundly arbitrary and unconstitutional. They are using their newly acquired emergency powers to oppress the people and undermine basic principles of democratic government – including equality before the law and the right of citizens to be protected from unpredictable and arbitrary interference with their vital interests….

There was never an emergency that could justify the imposition of these emergency measures. Politicians have justified the incredible harm they are causing to the Australian people by getting completely drunk on their own sense of self-righteousness. Full of themselves, they proudly warned that we face a great threat but their policies have saved us from the spread of a deadly virus. The privileged members of our political class are therefore able to block our peaceful protests because they think they know better what needs to be done, and even if we are eventually oppressed, silenced and destitute as a result.

A reasonable concern for our well-being is one thing, but the actions taken by politicians during this pandemic have gone well beyond the extreme. What is happening is simply disgraceful and it gives new meaning to the phrase, ‘The cure is worse than the disease’. Of course, some of the worst crimes against humanity have been committed by individuals who believed they were simply doing a ‘great good’….

So many people have developed an utterly distorted view of government, or what a government can do for them. Such individuals now expect almost everything to come from government. They blindly worship at the altar of their all-mighty government, expecting their “benevolent” rulers to act as their almighty saviours, believing in government basically as the ultimate provider for all good things. Perhaps this is the result of society’s lost faith in the God of Christianity. Be as it may, the undeniable truth is that far too many Australians have acquired a disturbingly unshakeable faith in their ruling political masters. Call it a form of idolatry if you will.

Fortunately, the only discernible benefit of this ongoing pandemic has been to expose the authoritarian behaviour of the ruling elites led by the Australian Prime Minister and State Premiers. It has now become clear that such privileged individuals are developing a real taste for power and unlawful control over the population. The Prime Minister, Premiers, senior advisors and politicians have never had such an energising time as this. They are so full of importance and power that one can only expect them to continue running the country in such a heavy handed manner.

As should be clear from those words, Professor Zimmermann and I are on the same page here. As would be the other authors found in the book. I urge you all to get a copy or two. The volume is really that important, and we must pay careful heed to what is found therein.

To conclude, if you think my three-point recipe for tyranny offered above is still too long, a meme making the rounds on the social media has shortened things up a bit, but is just as true: “If you allow the government to break the law because of an emergency, they will always create an emergency to break the law.”

Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible is the blueprint of Faith. The New Testament has given us God’s kind of faith and the authority to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. No matter what level of cancer you are; you can be healed by your faith and the word of God. Jesus did not care in what stage of death were the three people whom he raised from the dead. He just called life on them. Let see how He did it. "The first time he invaded the realm of death it was for the daughter of Jairus; an official in Jerusalem. She was “just” dead. The second time it was the son of a widow in Nain who was “one day” dead, and the third time it was Lazarus; brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany who was “very” dead after three days. HE raised them “all.” It doesn’t matter how big is your problem, and how hopeless you are because Jesus is the resurrection and the light."-Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Putting Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian and believe this because this is what was predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible, or you are not a Christian but you read all these articles and connect the dots to notice that the satanic world government is their agenda and with President Trump, we had 4 years and this was God's mercy on us. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal's 12 years matches the agenda 2030. The immigration and devouring of America and Europe all go according to the blueprint of one world satanic government. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Why are we, born-again Christians happy and calm? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted for NOT taking the mark of the beast? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Your kingdom come, Your will be done." 1- We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. 2- We believe the Bible is the word of God. 3-We believe God had so much loved us that HE sent his only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins. Through his blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4- We believe the price of our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life is paid by the blood of Jesus. We have all these gifts in us when we are born again by GRACE. By his stripes, we are healed 2000 years ago. 5-We believe by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit who will dwell in us and will reveal Himself through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books to communicate with us, immediately after our Salvation. 6- We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We believe born-again believers receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the Apostles performed the same signs and wonders as our Lord Jesus did. They did it through "faith," and The Lord will accomplish the same miracles through us after we accept him as our savior. 7-We condemn the religion and many fake prophets of the Vatican (not all of our Catholic brothers and sisters) who deceived Christians for centuries and hid the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to keep themselves in power. We welcome all denominations. 8- We believe that a born-again Christian never dies and the moment his life on earth is terminated, he is promoted to heaven. There is no death for us. We just transit to our new dimension which is filled with immerse, joy, love, peace, and glory of God. All people who have met Jesus in a visit, vision, dream, or have died for a short time, left their body and came back, know how does this experience feel. It is a divine relief and joy. Therefore, to answer the above question (why are we happy?), our answer is, we can happily die right now. In fact, we would love to die yesterday and go home but each one of us has a mission and purpose that the Holy Spirit has revealed to us after our born-again experience. For the sake of that mission, although we know our day of prosecution will come, we are joyful and relaxed in the spirit. Because we save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved. He will reveal himself to you. Your life will dramatically change. Your marriage, your health (especially addiction), your finances, and all areas of your life will experience this extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
