As 2008 approaches, I have looked back at the 780 articles that I have written over the past year. It has given mixed feelings to read my own work, with the inevitable thoughts of 'wow, did I write that', but in re-reading some of the content a new fear grows for the direction that the UK, Europe and the rest of world is heading.
The rise of Authoritarianism, the divisive use of Diversity and Multi Culturism, the banning of virtually anything that allows us to be individuals, and the writing of laws that make little or no moral sense. Laws which make law abiding people criminals for the most trivial things.
The destruction of our National Identity through stealth, the Beigism of governments, the undermining and belittling of religious and national traditions and the dumbing down of populations to accept whatever comes next.
I have long said that if it were simply the ineptitude of our own government, I could live with that and vote them out next time round, but the more I research, delve into the world of politics the more I see it as something happening everywhere, and I now seriously doubt that there will be a next election, not as we currently understand elections anyway.
I see education systems failing to educate but to indoctrinate our youth, I see Health services failing to deliver health services but instead deliver politically guided and enforced doctrines, I see law and order changing into a politically guided quagmire which undermines centuries of legal precedent leaving disorder all around, where people are punished for being victims whilst the perpetrators of criminal activity are given rights which protect them. The intrusiveness of governments into every facet of our lives and the hell for leather rush to use technology to monitor and track populations around the globe.
It can no longer be passed off as an English problem, or a UK problem, for we see it everywhere, it is surely a world problem.
The pace and momentum of this unwelcome and unwanted change is building, but where exactly does it all come from.
I have been reading and researching now for just over a year, and have looked at so many articles written by renowned journalists, by bloggers, studied various conspiracy theories, read countless government documents, the output from numerous European think tanks and working groups, but have seen so much fact, counter fact and so many false leads that I have like most others been confused, not in my own belief of what a government should be doing, but in what I see governments actually doing.
For me, much of that confusion has been cleared away by one man. For the first time in a year all this madness is making sense. It makes sense of the laws, it makes sense of the madness in our society, it makes sense of why Blair has only now openly become a Catholic, it makes sense to me of just about everything going on around me.
I am not a religious man, I am agnostic, and although the lecture has religious overtones, see it for what it is. It is 1hr 33m long, but please spend the time to watch, it is one of the most disturbing lectures that I have ever seen, for it frightened me, and I am not one to frighten easily.
It has seriously made me think. Is this all inevitable, should I go with the flow and take the quiet route like everyone else, or do I believe that it is wrong, worth fighting. Fighting for the right to be me.
When you have finished watching it, I hope that you too start to ask questions, then look at each one of our political leaders, Brown, (ask why no Christmas message), Blair, Cameron, Huhne, those in Europe, Barrosso, Sarkozy, Prodi, King Carlos, all of them, Bush, Clinton and all the others in the race to the White House and ask yourself why.
Why have they made the decisions they have. Why did they write certain laws the way they have, Why are they trying to undermine our democratic freedoms, why do they all follow the same path, the same direction. and what role does the UN really fulfil. Is it the same end game?
