Leave it to the Brits to always be ahead of the curve and set trends for the world. In a ramp up of draconian measures that have been implemented using Covid-19 as a pretext, the British Parliament is debating a new Anti-Protest bill that would usher in a new era of totalitarianism in a land that once fought against fascism by land, sea and air. Though the United States is recognized as the preeminent economy in the world, in a lot of ways, it is still the UK that sets the tone when it comes global governance and public policy postures. The embrace of Orwellian restrictions of our freedoms and rights is a harbinger of what is to come for America and the rest of the world.
Winston Churchill once stated “never let a good crisis go to waste”; as lawmakers are wont to do, every time there is a calamity, not far behind are legislations ready to be enacted that eviscerate our rights and shred our freedoms. Except this time they have outdone themselves and shown their true malicious colors; instead of protecting the public, the ruling class saw Covid-19 as a perfect opportunity to implement policies planned a long time ago that nullifies democracy and replaces it with tyranny. They are doing this by stoking general panic, inducing mental illnesses upon society through draconian lockdowns and distancing that serve to disconnect us from the sense of community we need to thrive emotionally, physically and spiritually.
So then it comes as no surprise to me that MP are moving to foist this most repressive law upon the British public. Using the death of Sarah Everard as a pretext, they are intent on handing Home Secretary Priti Patel unprecedented powers to make mass-arrests, crack down on protests and restrict the rights of the citizenry to gather peacefully to demand accountability from their government. After sitting back and doing nothing, lawmakers jump into action when there is a brutal affront committed only to use the dead bodies of victims to enlarge their turfs and enrich their aristocrat patrons. Such is the case with the death of Ms. Everard; diabolical MPs are leveraging the pains of her family to erect an Iron Wall meant to ghettoize civil rights and freedoms of movement.
This new anti-protest law is being proposed in Britain this Tuesday. This bill is so draconian it says that if your action *or inaction* means *anyone* is *at risk of serious annoyance* (yes, that’s the bar!) you can be jailed *for a decade*.

Make no mistake about it, this move is but a trial balloon of greater schemes that the government has in their silos meant to lock us in place and prevent an uprising. Last night, I wrote about the ways governments, media and corporations—what I referred to as the new axis of evil—are colluding to manufacture compliance and silence dissent in order to “vaccinate” hundreds of millions of Americans without their informed consentx. What the US government is pursuing, the British government is in many ways more forward leaning when it comes to stifling liberties and propagandizing their constituents. #No2TyrannyInUK Click To Tweet
It is my hope that the British muster the courage and fight like hell to push back against this power grab by their government. If we go meekly into the night—if the governed do not react when their rights are being snatched away—then we truly do deserve the government that we get. I get it, we are in a time of a pandemic and a public crisis not witnessed since 1918, we should do everything we can to avert millions from perishing. But there is a red line in terms of how far we should go to mitigate the risk of Covid-19; that red line is guarding our rights jealously and refusing to become lab animals for Biotech corporations.
