Corporate Totalitarianism Unleashed By Tom North

Australians saw the evil shadow of corporate totalitarianism in the funding by corporations, almost all of whom were owned by overseas interests, in the Voice referendum campaign. Tens of millions of dollars were rolled out to support an agenda which was based upon the idea of the country being stolen from the Aboriginals, who were supposed to have lived in perfect harmony with each other, with no constant inter-tribal battles in pre-modernity. And it was not just that one thing, for funding readily flows to all matter of Leftist woke causes, such as free abortion up until pension age (no, joking, just up to birth so far). Woke causes are, as argued below, simply the latest strategy of the globalist financial class to seize power and ever-growing wealth. The Covid plandemic well illustrated this, where the lockdowns made Big Tech corporations(who champion woke causes) richer, while small businesses went under not being able to operate.

As noted: "The institutions of Western liberal democracy have been captured by powerful corporations and individuals working in alliance with politicians and statesmen who are ushering in a new nomos and world order. The key themes of this emergent corporate totalitarianism are alienation, fear and authoritarianism but it is also characterised by its corruption and exploitation of scientific enquiry to further its goals. Technological developments are proving indispensable tools for enforcing compliance and a new ideology has been developed which appears progressive at first glance but is a simple cover for further wealth and power transfers. So far, Western liberal democracy and Christianity have provided little resistance to woke culture or corporate totalitarianism and this poses a troubling conundrum to those seeking to challenge its nihilistic vision of humanity."

Fighting back against corporate totalitarian tyranny must be the core mission of the Freedom movement today, because at present there is little chance of alternative social policies and finance getting up so long as these globalist forces rule the waves. And, their power today, dwarfs what existed in the past, and grows like a sci fi monster, every day.

"In 1992 following the end of the Cold War, Francis Fukuyama's published The End of History and the Last Man in which he argued that Western liberal democracy had triumphed over communism and represented the last stage of human ideological development. In response to his former student's book, Samuel Huntingdon wrote the Clash of Civilisations thesis where he predicted that the post-Cold War period would see the emergence of conflicts along religious and cultural lines. However, what neither of them predicted was the emergence of a new threat to peace and security: corporate totalitarianism.

Corporate totalitarianism represents a new ideological development in the history of humanity. Its proponents are the oligarch class who own investment funds and corporations, dynastic families and individuals of extraordinary wealth. They belong to the same class from which powerful politicians and statesmen are drawn, and they help coordinate their activities at the helm of political parties, from within Government departments and across the multitude of non-governmental bodies that are involved in the policymaking process. Global in nature and outlook, their identification is not with any country, religion or culture, and among their chief goals is the continued accumulation of wealth and power.

This transfer is occurring under the ideological umbrella of 'woke'; a set of values and beliefs that at first glance appear to be emancipatory and concerned with fairness, justice, health and environmental protection. Further scrutiny of the woke agenda reveals a set of deflections from actual progress and a lack of authentic concern about the human condition. Instead 'woke' is a vehicle for maximising wealth and power to corporations and fantastically wealthy individuals. The COVID-19 vaccination programme saw the transfer of billions of pounds of taxpayers' money to pharmaceutical companies and their investors, while concerns about diversity and equity deflect scrutiny from growing class inequality.

But the woke agenda is more malignant than just a fig leaf for egregious acts committed by corporations, often referred to as woke washing, and the oligarchs are inspired by tactics from both ends of the political spectrum. A dissection of corporate totalitarianism reveals three core themes: alienation, fear and authoritarianism. The first theme of alienation seeks to introduce policies designed to destroy all social bonds between humanity, thus undermining family, marriage, parental authority, community, neighbourhood, religious faith, culture and national identity. The destruction of social bonds leaves people atomised and undermines solidarity that might result in a successful challenge to corporate totalitarianism.

The second theme of fear involves the threat of violence to those who refuse to comply with the demands of the authorities. Hannah Arendt in On Totalitarianism wrote at length on the use of the mob to intimidate opponents of the National Socialist regime. Mobs associated with Black Lives Matter (BLM), anthropogenic climate change, transgenderism and antisemitic marches claiming to be pro-Palestinian all fit the description of the Arendtian mob and appear be given a free pass by the authorities. Finally, the third theme shows the willingness of those in power to employ authoritarianism, evidenced by lockdowns and vaccine mandates, and to use propaganda and censorship to control the narrative. Attempts to subvert free speech and editorialise public discourse have been cemented across many countries with statutory instruments designed to criminalise dissenting views on- and off-line, and in both public and private spaces.

The erosion of free speech has extended into scientific discourse with the corruption of the evidence base and the peer review process. The assertion that anthropogenic climate change is a scientific fact and that the science is settled has been reinforced by articles such as Lynas et al. in 2021 entitled 'Greater than 99% consensus on human caused climate change in the peer-reviewed scientific literature'. The authors stated the following:

Our finding is that the broadly-defined scientific consensus likely far exceeds 99% regarding the role of anthropogenic GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions in modern climate change, and may even be as high as 99.9%. Of course, the prevalence of mis/disinformation about the role of GHG emissions in modern climate change is unlikely to be driven purely by genuine scientific illiteracy or lack of understanding.

This paper appears to be a 'systematic review' (the highest level of evidence) but closer analysis of its methodological section reveals that it does not meet the criteria for a systematic review. The publication was supported by the Alliance for Science, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This paper has been used by the BBC to support its claim that anthropogenic climate change is an established fact, and therefore not a political issue, and is the basis on which further demands for bureaucratisation and taxation are made by the authorities. There is now a constant dripping of climate change propaganda featured throughout the mainstream media and frequent triangulation between climate change and other progressive concerns of woke ideology such as migration, social justice and global conflict.

Scientists and healthcare professionals have come under pressure to follow the edicts of corporate totalitarianism and those who question the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, the 'science' behind Net Zero or medicalisation of gender dysphoria face professional sanctions, deregistration, job loss and ridicule. Attempts are being made to change how data are gathered and analysed to ensure that they meet political requirements, and inconvenient scientific papers such as the 2020 Cochrane systematic review on masks by Jefferson et al., which did not find evidence that supported the use of masks to reduce respiratory viral infections, are misreported, editorialised and 'fact-checked'. Like Winston Smith, the protagonist in 1984 busily shredding information that does not fit the current political messaging, the Office for National Statistics has been busy reconfiguring its methodological approach to calculating mortality rates. The mainstream media continue to run articles that acknowledge the rise in cardiovascular deaths and cancers since the COVID-19 vaccine rollout but signpost readers to ambulance delays, doctors' strikes, patients not taking their statins or young people eating too much junk food as potential explanations.

There is one area of authentic scientific enquiry that corporate totalitarianism has retained an interest in: that of human behaviour and how to influence it. The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), also known as the nudge unit, was established within the U.K.'s Cabinet Office in 2010 but has since become a "global social purpose company", with ownership transferred to a charity called Nesta and clients and offices around the world. During the pandemic response to COVID-19, governments used a range of experts to dress their decisions in the cloak of science and academia from prestigious institutions, including those gathered in the Scientific Pandemic Insights Group on Behaviours (SPI-B). Research and analysis conducted by SPI-B on 'Sustaining Behaviours to reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission' informed the U.K. Government about a range of methodological strategies to influence and sustain approved behaviours without any consideration of research ethics.

During this time, the Local Government Association produced a 2021 guide for local councils entitled 'Applying behavioural insights to improve Covid vaccination uptake: a guide for councils' explaining how councils could use behavioural science models to reduce hesitancy to the COVID-19 vaccines. It advised councils of ways to map hesitancy and use various behaviour change models such as COM-B (capability, opportunity, and motivation) and 3C (confidence, complacency, and convenience) and provided a bespoke template to use. This report showed councils how to use the behavioural insights gained by SPI-B and the Behavioural Insights Team to manipulate people's behaviours whilst also removing the ethical imperative of 'informed consent'.

A digital cage is being constructed around the public which was tested during the COVID-19 pandemic and supported by the proliferation of mobile phone devices. For the first time authorities were able to exploit geo-tracking, digital passports and bio-cameras to collect data, undertake surveillance and control movement with little judicial oversight. The authorities are keen to introduce centralised digital currencies (CDC), not least because the declining value of fiat currency means that it will eventually become worthless, and are intent on removing cash entirely. Soon it will be impossible to access public services, purchase goods, turn on home appliances, ride public transport or participate in public life without access to the internet and digital devices. The merging of CDC's with social credit systems and the digital surveillance network may be used to ensure that there will be no vaccine refuseniks the next time a pandemic is declared by the WHO.

The rise of this new elite is associated with significant collateral damage as wealth and power are transferred between the 'Silent Generation' and the 'Boomers' and between two distinct ideologies, Western liberal democracy and corporate totalitarianism. In 1967, Berger identified the norms, values, rules, laws and beliefs of a particular elite as the nomos and explained how it provided certainty and stability to wider society. However, when a new elite emerges, and a new nomos is installed this causes widespread anomie as people no longer recognise the world around them. The bourgeoise are perhaps the most adaptable at making these shifts, and private schools and universities involved in their conditioning are capable of making abrupt ideological turns. But this still leaves the vast majority of people playing catch up. It could be argued that the radical shift in nomos that has occurred in the last 10 years is a contributory factor to the explosion of mental health disorders and substance misuse in the wider population.

In conclusion, neither Fukuyama nor Huntington were accurate in their analysis or prediction of what would fuel conflict in the 21st century. The institutions of Western liberal democracy have been captured by powerful corporations and individuals working in alliance with politicians and statesmen who are ushering in a new nomos and world order. The key themes of this emergent corporate totalitarianism are alienation, fear and authoritarianism but it is also characterised by its corruption and exploitation of scientific enquiry to further its goals. Technological developments are proving indispensable tools for enforcing compliance and a new ideology has been developed which appears progressive at first glance but is a simple cover for further wealth and power transfers. So far, Western liberal democracy and Christianity have provided little resistance to woke culture or corporate totalitarianism and this poses a troubling conundrum to those seeking to challenge its nihilistic vision of humanity."
