A week or so ago, I wrote a post pondering the whys and wherefores of the release of the so called ‘Paradise Papers’ which seems to have preoccupied the media so much lately. The MSM have of course concentrated on the names and numbers contained on those lists, because that’s where the headlines and click-bait lies; but what piqued my interest was who was behind the hack, and for what reason.
As chance would have it, I happened across a video clip a couple of days ago, of Nigel Farage speaking in the European Parliament recently (14th Nov), addressing the very questions I posed in my post. It’s only a few minutes long, but very enlightening despite its brevity:
The fact that George Soros was behind it surprises me not one iota. In fact I was going to drop his name in the hat in my previous post, but decided against it.
The other thing that Mr Farage said which interested me was how many MEPs and other EU hierarchy had links to Soros’s ‘Open Society Foundation’, and the extent to which he funds it.
(As an aside, I have to say I’m a great admirer of Mr Farage as a speaker. He’s eloquent, fearless, and cuts to the chase with no messing about. In my opinion he’s probably one of the best political speakers around today.)
It really is starting to get difficult to avoid the idea of a conspiracy among a few of the very rich and powerful men on the planet who want to steer us into a global government, a New World Order. (Which would naturally be a socialist heaven, but with some of the animals more equal than others.) There has been, over the past few decades, a sustained attack on our cultures, our moral compasses and our national pride. Our sense of identity and self-esteem are constantly being undermined by ‘Political Correctness’. Our ability to make our own decisions about how we live and how we educate our children is being taken from us by an increasingly overweening state. It’s relentless and it’s all pervasive.
The past couple of decades have seen our liberties severely curtailed, always in the name of ‘security’, or ‘health’, or ‘safety’. And every new hysterical scare in the MSM is followed by cries of ‘Something Must Be Done’ from professional lobbying organisations that seem to exist with the sole purpose of removing all traces of the joy of living from everyone’s soul; and the government consistently obliges by removing a few more of our freedoms, and taxing us more for the privilege.
It really does feel as if we’re being herded in a particular direction.
I am always reluctant to jump on the conspiracy theory bandwagon, but when it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…
I fear that if things are allowed to continue as they are, we really are heading for Huxley’s Brave New World.
