Fighting for liberty and justice is an ongoing eternal issue that could easily become a full-time occupation without any major gains.
I think I’ve compared “deconstructionist” efforts in the past to Samara, the girl from The Ring franchise. I think I’ll elaborate on that by saying that she could symbolise the force of anti-human totalitarianism instead. It is a bad idea to pin this exclusively on a political movement (or a political party) since it is in many ways like a force of nature, a negative one, the dark to the light.
There will always be warning signs before a crazed lone-gunman unleashes his untamed fury upon an unsuspecting group of innocents and likewise there will always be warning signs before societal collapses.
When the EU reaches its ultimate form and they finally have the power to control their “subjects” exactly how they want under their jurisdiction it will already be too late and many will then wonder why they weren’t warned…….
The advocacy against Article 13 & Article 11 failed, and this could be since campaigning was way too fragmented and due to the message not being relatable enough.
There has been a lot of focus on how damaging the Copyright Directive could be for creators but the majority of the populace are obviously not YouTubers. Among those who are YouTube creators there will always be those who are professional and who know the ins and outs of intellectual rights due to being copyright owners themselves, but the majority might be largely ignorant due to lack of management/representation and lack of general awareness.
Many threw themselves on the YouTube cover trend since this gave people subscribers and views very quickly. I myself often wondered how on earth there could be such a great demand or interest watching the one cover after the other of the exact same song. Don’t ask me why there is such a demand for this … but the bottom line is that there is and that most successful YouTube channels have grown not due to original creativity but due to performances of already established works. This might come to a total end with the signing of the EU Copyright Directive which happened today (or yesterday depending on your time-zone).
I threw myself on the Article 13 & article 11 #saveyourinternet campaign since I’m alarmed at the multiple warning signs coming out of the EU displaying their total disdain for the general population and the totalitarianism that they are clearly aiming for when it comes to what sort of future they are building.
This is not a future that respects or take into account the internal European cultural and ethnic diversity that we have here already, nor does it seek to protect and communicate historical accuracies, nor does it seek to make information spread easily, since there is obviously a desire to meticulously micro-manage whatever narratives that are allowed to float around on the internet.
Witness accounts regarding targeted violence towards ethnic Europeans have routinely been hushed down (in some EU territories this has been more severe than other places), since there is only a yearning for carefully constructed propaganda in addition to increased surveillance. This in spite of Angela Merkel herself admitting to all of the internal issues in Germany over failed integration of migrants, before she then decided to do a total political turn and open up the whole continent to anyone who wants to come. A fun fact is that there is currently a lot of heat between the USA and Germany since the Germans have declared that the cost of immigration is such that they cannot commit to NATO expenses….
Assuming that a one-size-fits-all mentality could function for the entire European continent with all of its innate diversity sounds mad. You cannot even move around in this territory without knowing multiple languages. People are very tribal and not knowing how to communicate locally will get you a lot of static, in fact it will be impossible for you to function. You have to speak many languages if moving around within Europe, this is not optional, it is a must!
When it comes to increased steps taken to monopolise “speech” and “story-lines” I ask this:
- Does this sounds like what we learned in school about East-Germany and The Soviet Union?
This is where we are heading in full force ourselves, yet people will not care too much about it yet since “it doesn’t affect them.”
Any person regardless of gender, race, orientation, beliefs, background, whatever, can be a YouTube creator, it could be anyone, yet the mistake that was made by many was that they did not mention the bigger or fuller picture:
- Several news articles cannot be accessed from EU territories, including the UK, since the UK is merely a province of the EU and has no sovereignty or power of its own.
- In addition to this there is also the desire to make it illegal for Europeans to talk about immigration, regardless of the historical implications of mass population movements and regardless of the fact that inter-European tribal movements define us.
- Nobody really reports on the staggering increase in vandalism towards Christian churches in France. Anti-Semitism is also on the rise, but according to an article I read not that long ago anti-Christian hate-crimes amount to over a 1000 incidents over a year, with anti-Jewish crimes passing the 500 mark, anti-Muslim crimes in comparison was at a 100 incidents. The question of course remains why this isn’t part of the mainstream news picture?
Simply trying to rally people around their favourite entertainment platform wasn’t enough, but I’m sure that more and more warning signs will come out of the EU and at one point or the other there might be enough people who are directly affected by the changes for it to make a difference….
I’m currently reading about The Russian Revolution and what strikes me as fascinating is the fact that there were several minor revolutions before the big popular one. Prolonged mass-mobilisation was a bit of an issue since demographics dropped off once their particular group received whatever compensation that they wanted.
When their specific group was being looked after it was all good!
There is no reason to believe that Europeans will react any differently.
“For as long as I’m fine I’ll be quiet!”
Imagine a future where you are only allowed to blog or post content online if you have a permit or a license obtained after extensive political screening by some official department. You might be laughing today….but for how long?
