Hypocrisy is the dominant characteristic of the Labour party; everything is being done to us for our own good despite all evidence to the contrary, and the more it hurts, the better it is for us. But the worst of it is that they get us to do their dirty work for them; to conspire against ourselves, and we fall for it. Regularly. I'm speaking of democracy.
Ah, democracy, democracy, democracy... the breakfast of champions, the tea-time of the gods; the most equitable system in the world, the only one that is regularly reviled but clung to because 'they' claim that any other kind of politics is a damn' sight worse. Sweet democracy, brought to you by Tony Blair as part of the 'globalisation, let's follow American neo-colonial neo-conservative policies at home and abroad and aggressively sell or bomb people into submitting to our way of life'. Such is democracy, that gives everyone an 'equal' say because they are all 'equal' because they are all 'diverse' because they are all the 'same' because they are all 'different'. Wonderful democracy, allowing women and idiots to have the vote just like the men. Aren't we just peachy lucky to be living in the UK?
The government doesn't have to trumpet about democracy - or what they say passes for democracy - too much these days, because everyone else in the country, be they a WI matron or a leftie student activist, bellows about the sanctity of the democratic system on their behalf. Having only lived under 'democracy' for twelve years, they're unable to recognise it for its true self: totalitarianism. A system whereby the state intrudes into every corner of private and public life. And, what's more, people are enthusiastically taking on Campbell and Mandelson's jobs for them: thinking it's in 'our' 'best' interests to tear down the Lords, and make it a criminal offence to mention religion, and supporting ID cards and state ownership of banks. It doesn't matter what side they vote on: they're still participating in a socialist agenda. Lenin would be proud, Beria more so. One suspects that Gordon Brown's been using the latter's address on the triumph of psychopolitics as a study guide:
"The optimum obedience is unthinking obedience. The command given must be obeyed without any rationalizing on the part of the subject. The command must, therefore, be implanted below the thinking processes of the subject to be influenced, and must react upon him in such a way as to produce no mental alertness on his part."
And so socialism is capitulated as liberalism, liberalism is capitulated as democracy, and everyone ends up living according to the same agenda: a dumbed down, flatline, anodyne, anti-vital illusion. As Beria goes on to say: "If you would have obedience you must have no compromise with humanity. If you would have obedience you must make it clearly understood that you have no mercy. Man is an animal. He understands, in the final analysis, only those things that a brute understands."
