Whenever I read anything about the government's so-called "emergency alerts", set to be tested on April 23rd, I immediately get said rather splendid song from Electric Six in my head, which at least gives the latest fear-based pantomime charade a bit of a melodic backdrop...
So, what is going on with this latest bit of media agitprop designed to get us all on-the-edge-our-seats nervous about what impending "emergency" could be looming? An emergency so dire, the government needs to be able to instantly contact every person in the land about it?
Well, first things first, let's be abundantly clear that whenever the government and media go lockstep and promote an agenda so intensively, it's a) never in our interests, and b) never authentic, e.g., whatever they're setting up with these "emergency alerts" is not going to be a "real" emergency - it's going to be something scrupulously planned, produced, and scripted. It's large scale street theatre: interactive performance art for the masses, and they want to send you an "emergency alert" as a way of prompting you to say your lines (as I said about Covid, "it's a big pantomime and you are in it"). What might your lines be? How about:
"Oh My God, Sally, it's finally happened! We've seen it on X-Files for years and now it's here for real... the aliens are here to kill us all!"
"Oh well, I knew that evil Putin would get his revenge eventually. Hiking our gas prices wasn't enough for that maniacal tyrant... now he's sending nuclear bombs too... quick, under the kitchen table!"
You get the idea. This is always how it happens with large scale psychological operations (military-grade mind control programmes): the establishment beams their desired fake reality into the mass mind by way of the telescreen, the newspaper, and now, the mobile phone, and the masses then diligently co-create it for them by saying what they've been prompted to say.
"Covid" was a mass scale behavioural psychology experiment to see how far the government and media could control the populace through fabricated fear, and the results showed that the answer is "very far indeed". The specific reason for some of the most absurdist, literally Monty- Python-esque "rules" (such as, you have to wear a muzzle when you stand up in a restaurant, and you can't have a pint unless it's accompanied by a Scotch Egg) was to test just how preposterously the government could make people behave, by continually baiting them with fear.
What this experiment showed - and what many previous, albeit not quite so gargantuan and global - experiments have shown, is that people will abdicate all reason and responsibility if they're scared enough - and it's not just the formal threat they're scared of (e.g., in this recent instance, an alleged virus), but - more pointedly - authority, and "getting into trouble".
Even the most devout of the Branch Covidians could not possibly have believed that munching on a breaded piece of processed pork would protect them from the plague, a pestilence so superstitious, it would definitely have leapt upon them if they'd supped their beverage without a snack. So people didn't comply with these kind of ludicrous directives because they were afraid of "the virus", but because they were afraid of disobeying authority, which, as the famous Milgram experiments so starkly demonstrated, most people are - so afraid that they will kill innocent people before they will displease a perceived "authority figure".
However, the problem with fear-based control systems is that they're only effective in the short-term. Myriad studies have shown this, with one recent example being the anti-smoking campaigns in schools, where anti-smoking professionals went into secondary schools and told 12-year-olds how evil and awful smoking was, and how they would all die a horrible death if they ever took the habit up.
In the short-term, this was exceptionally effective, to the extent that not only did the 12-year-olds not take up smoking, but they returned home to deliver solemn lectures to smoker parents, about their unnegotiable obligation to ditch this filthy habit immediately.
However, when these same 12-year-olds were revisited four years later (assuming they hadn't been evicted by extremely irritated parents in that time), it was found so many had taken up smoking, that the rates were in fact no lower than in teenagers who hadn't received the brutal anti-smoking messaging. In fact, in some areas, the rates were higher.
So the corollary of this is, if you want to keep controlling someone's behaviour through fear, you can't repeatedly use the same threat, as the fear of that threat wears off quite quickly (hence why there was such an enormous difference in compliance levels between lockdown one - huge compliance - and all subsequent lockdowns - less and less compliance each time).
That means that the government now requires a new and completely different kind of threat to reactivate people's fear-compliance-control mechanism, and that is what the "emergency alerts" psy-op is about.
Already, simply by announcing this initiative, generalised fear levels in the population have gone up, as everyone speculates, "why this, why now? We've never needed this kind of programme before, so what's going on? What is the government 'expecting' (or, if you're a consummate conspiracist, as of course you should be, 'planning')?"
I think the three most likely scenarios are:
While it could of course be something else (the government is after all full of surprises - I mean, who could have predicted the Scotch Eggs?), I think the above are the three most plausible scenarios. And to be absolutely clear, none of it will be "real", if by real we mean natural, organic, spontaneous. Whatever is on the way is already scripted, planned, and signed off at the highest levels, and the "emergency alerts" are just another theatre prop, like masks, to make it all look authentic.
We know that the government and the world's ruling classes are engaged in a semi-covert (though pretty obvious really) war against the people, and are launching a full spectrum dominance attack to subvert, break, and destroy us. So - surely needless to say - the one thing we can be sure about regarding these "emergency alerts" is that they have nothing to do with what the government says they do - "to protect us" - just like none of their Covid measures had anything to do with that, either.
Another angle could be seen to be inducting us further into a digital prison, as, if you do not acknowledge the 'test' alert (and, contrary to earlier reports, it seems there's no way of switching it off), all functionality on your phone will be frozen. Many/most people are completely dependent on their phone to operate within society - they use it for work, they use it to stay in touch with family and friends, they use it for parking apps and train tickets, etc.
So, the government is giving us a first taster of how they can lock us out of our lives if we don't comply with their directives. Yes, for now it's "only" acknowledging a text message. But what will it be next?
So the first steps we can take to insulate ourselves from all this involve (easier said than done, I know...) becoming less dependent on our phones, such as - not using apps if there are physical alternatives, e.g., a parking meter rather than parking app, buying physical train tickets, not digital ones, and so on, and - if possible - moving away from Smart phones entirely, and accessing the internet from other devices (laptop, desktop, tablet) which seem to enjoy substantially more privacy options than phones.
Further than this, though, the best prep we can do, I'm happy to say we've already done, courtesy of the last three years - seeing through government hoaxes and refusing to comply with the fear-based programming. Yes, "something big" is coming, but there's no need to be any more worried about it than you were the fake cold virus. Although, please be prepared for the fact that there will be people who saw through Covid, who will nevertheless fall for this. We've already seen it when there were practice "climate change lockdowns" (e.g., weather) - people saying, "okay, Covid was obviously nonsense, but when the government tells us to stay home and stay safe because of the weather, we have to take it seriously"...
To sum: the "emergency alert" on April 23rd is just an attention-grabbing trailer for the big summer blockbuster of 2023 - it's all another pantomime. And, just like with the last one, we will all be fully capable of switching off the screens that broadcast it, tossing away the newspapers that script it, and exiting stage left, back into our real lives.
