The following words are from the 1946 introduction to Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
I only offer them as particularly appropriate at this moment in history.
"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude."
"Great is the truth, but greater still, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth."
Today there is a holocaust. The holocaust is upon us again. A people are being killed. A people are being targeted. A people are being subjugated. A restless army roams amongst a population, killing at random. Children are sliced down in their own homes. Their cries are echoing up to heaven, but no one hears. We are all silent. No one listens. No one hears. All is silence except the echoes of gunfire.
You ask, "Why do they hate us? Why do they target us? Why do they murder us at our business in our own towns?"
You ask this, but you do not ask, "Why do we hate them? Why do we target them? Why do we murder them at their business in their own towns?"
The child's cry echoes down an empty street. Why can we not hear it?
The Mother's cry falls on deaf ears, a dead baby in her arms.
Why can we not hear the pain?
You listen to the arguments. Listen, listen, listen, really listen. The argument is for a racially pure Israel, for racial purity, for a racial state. And within that state a separated ghetto with a racially distinct people inside, hidden behind fences, and subject to arbitrary attack.
Zionism was the original Nazism.
The Zionists worked with the Nazis.
They are one and the same.
Last week we heard that torture flights had passed through British territory. This sort of information has become so routine now that hardly anyone notices.
This week it was reported that Prince Harry had been in Afghanistan. Then we get pictures of him with his "mates" kicking a football made of rolled up toilet paper, rolled out for us, as it were, on demand, another item of ass-wipe news to wipe out the reality of what's happening around us. Routine propaganda.
Routine torture. Routine murder. Routine lies.
A routine war.
