Everything we’ve been told about the coronavirus ‘pandemic’ over the last three years has been a lie

Nothing we have been told is true…

“If the mainspring of popular government in peacetime is virtue, the mainspring of popular government during a revolution is both virtue and terror; virtue, without which terror is fatal; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing but swift, severe, inflexible justice; it is therefore an emanation of virtue. It is less a principle in itself than a consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to our nation’s most pressing needs.”

Maximilien Robespierre, On the Principles of Political Morality, 1794

Whether we did or do choose to believe it is not a question of opinion, or what we call ‘our’ politics, or even of our trust in authority. Those in authority in our society, as in every other across the world and throughout history, didn’t get there by telling the truth: they got there by lying.

We chose to believe them: as a ‘people’, the British did so in overwhelming numbers — it was because we were scared, and our fear made us stupid, it made us compliant, it made us weak, it made us turn to the liars in authority and ask them to tell us what to do — worse, to demand that they tell us what to do, and not only us but everybody else too.

No-one who wanted to could not have failed to realise, very early on, that we were being lied to. There were and are no grey areas between what was and wasn’t true. The truth was and still is there for anyone who wants to find it.

The lies were and are easier to listen to, for they are everywhere, in every mouth, across every screen, loud and stupid and unbelievable except by an act of will — not to truth but to believe easy lies.

But the difficult truth is that only cowards believed them, that only cowards can possibly choose to continue to believe them after three years of unrelenting and universal lying.

It is on this collective cowardice, and on the acceptance and repetition of lies to the point that they are now enforced by the authorities as truth, even when secretly scarcely anyone still believes them, that the ‘New Normal’ has been constructed. And the unpleasant truth is that this tells us something about where we are, in the UK, as a society and perhaps, in the West, as a civilisation, as well as about the terrible place we are heading.

Collected in two volumes, Virtue and Terror and The New Normal, these articles are for the unafraid, for those trying to find their courage, for those searching for the truth, for those who want to expose the lies to others, and for those looking for a way to fight back.

Please note, it took me 18 months to research and write these articles and another 4 months to edit them into two volumes, so please don’t share these E-books. For obvious reasons, I don’t have a publisher for books that contradict everything we’ve been told over the past three years, and this is the only way I can make some financial return on my work.

Thank you. Otherwise, whatever format you purchase, I hope you find my books informative, interesting and useful.
