The Rise of Totalitarianism

Doug Michael

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” – James Madison

Everywhere we look in our modern culture, within the current climate of fear and complete ignorance, those with open eyes can easily witness the growing tyranny and oppression spreading uncontrollably all around us in this high-tech, electronic prison camp that we have allowed to be erected all around us and which intrudes upon every aspect of our lives. With each passing moment it seems, the noose of autocracy tightens its grip while freedom diminishes at an ever-alarming pace as the totalitarian superstate places itself on full display all around us. Now, you can embrace this painful truth of history repeating itself or you can remain in stark denial, clinging onto your perceptual illusions that all is well and that you are free. Your forefathers tried to warn you of what would happen if you became too complacent and were not vigilant but you didn’t listen, and now you will pay the price for it.

Totalitarianism is a political system in which the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible. A distinctive feature of totalitarian governments is an “elaborate ideology, a set of ideas that gives meaning and direction to the whole society.” Totalitarianism is the most severe and extreme form of authoritarianism.[1]

The modern dictionary definition of totalitarianism is:

  1. centralized control by an autocratic authority
  2. the political concept that the citizen should be totally subject to an absolute state authority.[2]

This is the human condition, the struggle throughout our history as a species; the competition between freedom and tyranny.

The situation that we have here, is that a small, ruling class, ultra-rich oligarchy (The Consortium) has merged corporate power and state control in an ever-expanding police state that masquerades behind the illusion of freedom. They’re wondering how much they can parade before you and get away with before the mass of the people finally understands what has happened but it’s starting to look as if it’s too late. The masses are polarized into seemingly opposite camps, which are controlled by the same forces and played off against one another in the ages old technique of divide and rule. The media plays a significant role in this polarization process and has become nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Consortium network if indeed, it was ever anything but the mouthpiece for the so-called elite.

The art of David Dees:

Ever since the orchestrated events of September 11, 2001[3], the march towards a total police state has continued unabated and the open-ended wars have escalated exponentially. Police forces across the US have become completely militarized, heavily armed and equipped for urban combat. The police have become the standing armies that many of the founders warned about. James Madison once claimed:

“In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the executive magistrate. Constant apprehension of war, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”

This is precisely what has happened with the never ending “war on terror,” launched solely as a result of the 9/11 events. This open-ended war is a masquerade for empire building and the procurement of strategic lands that are rich in natural resources under the guise of fighting terror. It is a scam that has caused untold misery and by now has claimed well over a million lives.[4]

While the polarized herds fight each other over manufactured illusion and engineered division, the war machine expands and the militarization of police forces domestically increases dramatically. The Donald has recently announced his plan to send more troops to Afghanistan in this long-standing, open ended war.[5] At the same time, he lifted a ban on the transferring of military gear to police forces, which will aid in the further militarization of an already militarized police.[6] This decision would allow local police agencies to access heavy weaponry, including grenade launchers.[7] All to keep you “safe and free” of course.

There has been a massive increase in police brutality across the US as the iron grip of tyranny tightens its grasp around the necks of the people. In far too many cases, police have murdered unarmed civilians and gotten away with it. Every now and then, police do get charged, as in the case in Louisiana, in which cops open fired into a vehicle with a hail of gunfire that subsequently killed a 6-year-old autistic child[8] but far too often, cops get away with murder as with the case of Eric Garner, a NYC resident who was choked to death by a cop while being arrested for selling untaxed cigarettes.[9] Even though it is prohibited in New York City police protocol to place a suspect in a choke-hold, a grand jury decided not to indict the cop responsible for killing Garner.[10]

In 2014, a NYC Gestapo officer choked a man to death for selling untaxed cigarettes. Even though it is against NYC police protocol to place a suspect in a choke hold, the officer did so anyway which resulted in the death of Eric Garner. Despite Garner’s cries that he could not breathe, the officer maintained his grip and murdered Garner. He was later acquitted.

This has been happening ever increasingly and is not just a few isolated incidents as it appears that the real war is being waged against the American people. The statists that clamor to “support the police” or to go out and vote for some master every four years are absolutely clueless and completely devoid of any semblance of historical understanding and either cannot or flat out refuse to see it repeating before their very eyes. I don’t know how to soften this or say it gently, and I know that in this pussified climate of infantilism and politically correct language that people may get offended but so be it: if you look to some outside authority to lead you instead of trusting your own inherent guidance, then you are a fucking slave! Plain and simple. You are a cognitive slave to the designs of tyranny and your refusal to deal with the situation only condemns your children to a future of despotism.

If you attempt to inform the average person amongst your peers of this situation, most likely you will be met with blank stares or complete denial but if you bring up football statistics or who is fucking who in the latest, Hollyweird, celebrity scandal, then you’ve really got their attention! It’s a sad state of affairs when people would rather focus on irrelevant nonsense than take an honest look at what is occurring all around them and willingly remain in ignorance as opposed to getting educated and informed. It’s just far easier to remain a cognitive slave than it is to think and become aware. “I can accept cops murdering with impunity.” “I can accept the TSA molesting people at airports.” “After all, they are keeping us safe from terrorists!” No! They are the fucking terrorists!

Speaking of the TSA, this agency was put into place directly as a result of the 9/11 attacks and its purpose is not to protect citizens but to desensitize them into accepting infringements upon their freedoms. There have been numerous reports of TSA agents harassing people, including the elderly and disabled, even children[11] and also several incidents of agents robbing people’s personal belongings.[12]

The TSA, the Totalitarian Security Agency is in place to desensitize Americans to the removal of their basic freedoms. Groping young kids and disabled people keeps us safe from terrorists.

Americans have accepted infringements on their freedom in exchange for the illusion of safety. They have accepted massive surveillance technology being implemented everywhere, no-knock SWAT team raids that have killed many innocent people,[13] entire cities being placed in lockdown and martial law, as with the aftermath of the Boston bombings,[14] the passing of freedom-destroying legislation such as the NDAA, which basically makes everyone a suspect, the skies being filled with spy drones and the massive militarization of domestic law enforcement; in short, they have embraced with open arms, an invasive, technological police state.

Martial law lockdown implemented in the wake of the Boston bombing.

While the grip of oppression tightens in America, the war drums beat and the saber rattling continues under the current administration as it advances the neocon agenda, setting its sights on Iran and North Korea.[15] By executive order, economic sanctions have been imposed upon Venezuela,[16] which I’m sure has nothing to do with the fact that it contains the world’s largest oil reserves.[17] Iran is number four on the list, which I’m certain is also purely coincidental. Meanwhile the corrupted, completely bought-and-paid-for misleaders in the district of criminals, continue to support Israel and Saudi Arabia, two of the most brutal regimes on the planet. The Donald has already shown his allegiance to AIPAC and the CFR so what else would you expect than the continuation of the agenda set into place by the Consortium and carried out by his predecessors?

To those who are opposed to Trump but believe that Obama was any better, you have fallen for the divide and rule game. You have been polarized and cognitively manipulated to believe that there is any difference between the puppets that are placed into the CEO position of corporate America, there isn’t! One serves the left, one the right but both the left and right are controlled by the same ruling oligarchs. I read a comment by an Obamite on social media, thanking Obama for his “leadership.” Praise your oppressor! The corruption of that miscreant knows no bounds and in fact, he holds the record for most people drone-bombed while simultaneously holding a peace prize.

George Soros, the billionaire, ultra-left, Fabian Marxist, who was responsible for funding the Ukraine crisis,[18] and is behind organizations such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa, loaned millions to Trump in a construction project to build a skyscraper in Chicago.[19] They all serve the same agenda and the sooner that Americans wake up to this and stop allowing themselves to be divided over manufactured illusions, the better off we will be. As the late. Great comedian/social commentator, George Carlin so aptly put it: “it’s a big club and you ain’t in it!”

The jewel in the crown for the Consortium oligarchs is a completely monitored, technotronic, high-tech, surveillance grid, totalitarian super-state which is in the final phases of its full implementation. The evidence stares us in the face and the fact that the majority would rather remain within cognitive, arrested development and complete denial to this painful truth simply allows the grip of tyranny to tighten like a barbed-wire noose around the necks of the gullible. So, while you remain distracted with NFL players kneeling, historical monuments being defaced or removed, the latest mind-numbing TV program, or any other myriad of distractions in this culture of bread and circuses, your freedom is stolen in the wake of stage managed crises or yet another state sponsored, false flag operation.

Will you take back your mind and remove your consciousness from the maze of cognitive illusions or simply accept without protest the destruction of your freedom? Will you come to the realization of the mind game that has been played upon humanity and open your eyes to the agenda that is playing out, or simply continue on down the dead-end road to oblivion? Will you shed the false notion that you are powerless, transcend the victim consciousness and stand in the light of your full potential or is it game over as your country implodes all around you?

The choice of course is yours to make and it’s always far easier to remain asleep than to accept things the way that they are as opposed to how you wish they were. I believe that there is still time left to get informed and take the necessary steps to evolve one’s consciousness but the clock is ticking and time is running out…Walk in peace.

About Doug Michael
  • What’s it going to take? We seem so profoundly powerless… which doesn’t mean that we are but it certainly appears so at the moment. The perceptual and conceptual controls have been used to optimally brainwash the vast majority of people who don’t even know that they should be questioning EVERYTHING. The centralising and globalising… and at this point, dehumanising of things, has created a dauntingly massive and tyrannical construct and time is not on our side for much longer. In this ‘age of information’, information in the form of the true as opposed to the official story is key to any chance of global liberation.. Bless you Doug for posting this… and bless us all for living in such a crazy world.

  • Hey Doug! I have been following your work since a while and I must say a lot of the details you have researched on have helped made me conscious of the illusions around me. Thanks a lot for your efforts!
    I have a question though, I have often pondered on. Being aware helps for sure, but as an individual how do you stand against the state or the majority of people who follow and believe in the state? For one, I tried making my friends aware of certain facts you mention. They did give a keen ear but ended up saying: things are not in their hands, the world won’t change, people are too blinded. How do we leave our work and life, to ask people to see things from our point of view and still not being able to convince the majority anyway. That’s where the discussion ended. Also, if one raises their voice against the state, you are either killed or your reputation is destroyed (happened with one journalist here in India recently, she was killed by the supporters, she used to write against the government .)
    What action steps should we take as individuals? How do I as an individual do something about it, while also hopefully not putting my life in danger? Any reflections or article on it would be really kind!
    I love being aware and definitely wouldn’t want to go back to the state of sleep. At the same time, I do feel helpless for knowing everything and yet living it.

    • Thank you so much for the feedback and comment! I don’t see it so much as standing against, but as transcending the situation. Many people are so afraid to look honestly at what is occurring, I think because they have their perceptions that literally defines them (cognitive fortresses) and it’s very difficult to admit to oneself that you have been lied to for your entire life; it shakes the very foundation of the cognitive fortress.

      There is also this sense of powerlessness within so many people. “There’s nothing I can do about it.” I think that it is very important to be aware but to divorce one’s consciousness from agreeing with that which does not serve you. This does not mean that you ignore the situation, but that we can perhaps take steps, even on a small scale, that can affect positive change locally, within our own communities.

      Since early this year, I’ve been volunteering my time whenever I can to assist in my community. Even things that may seem small to us, may in fact be huge to others who are in need. You asked how do you as an individual do something about it. You said the key word, “individual.” I feel that doing something, however small it may seem to us, to bring upliftment or positive outcomes to our communities is huge. What may seem like a simple act of kindness, like bringing a homeless person some food and blankets , to them is tremendous. I think that it is a matter of being aware, but then taking real world actions locally to bring the change we wish to see.

      What if everyone gave just a little to offer positive change? If everyone that could do a little something did it, we could witness great changes for the better. One does not have to leave their current work or life behind to do this. I don’t think the majority is going to see the truth because I think truth is something that is realized from within by the individual.

      I always advocated reestablishing the spirit of community and getting to know one’s neighbors. What can be accomplished when small groups of people work together for a goal that brings goodness, is monumental; I’ve seen and been a part of this quite a bit this year. People are going to wake up (or not) and expand their consciousness at their own pace. To me it was always an individual thing. I offer information, but I don’t think it’s really our job to forcefully try to awaken others; I think the individual must come to it on their own so to speak, but maybe I’m wrong here.

      One thing I’ve noticed based on my perspective as an American, is that there seems to be a great lack of care and I think it is very sad and very detrimental. Many people seem to have an attitude that if they are safe and comfortable, why should they care if their neighbor is suffering? To me it’s nothing to cook some food and bring a plate to the homeless man up the street. Again, what if everyone that could, and that cared actually did something? The world could change, perhaps to a paradigm based on compassion and caring instead of one based on selfishness and “me-ism.” And that shift absolutely must begin with the individual. One does not need all of the ins and outs and details of the situation to know that things are very messed up; they just need to be honest with themselves and stop beLIEving that they have no power to bring positive change. Remember, a little bit can go a long way. I think it starts with a shift in attitude towards oneself, a renewed understanding of our connection to one another and then the willingness to act upon it. I do not have all of the answers my friend but I do my best to bring something positive to the situation right here, in my community, where I have the ability to do something. I hope this helps, and thank you again! Stay strong and walk in peace!

      • “Many people seem to have an attitude that if they are safe and comfortable, why should they care if their neighbour is suffering?” – I completely agree with that observation. Apparently, in my parents’ generation things were better, but I see this unbelievable apathy and self-absorption all around me. What you said there made sense, one has to start small and work in whatever capacity we can to contribute positively. At least, as an individual, one doesn’t betray one’s conscience and that could help in transcending the mind blocks created by man-made constructs may be..
        Thank you for the insight! I will reflect more on it and possibly find ways to act upon it.
