The secretary left the green file on his desk. He glanced at her then picked it up and leafed through it. This was his own work, his own policy. He shut the file then stood and surveyed the stunning view of London from his window. He could see the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament. Politics was so simple and so complicated. As also was business.
He sat at his desk and reviewed his file. His employers were well pleased. His policies were having effect.
The problem had been a simple one. Pursuit of profits. Unlike 3rd world countries where people would work from dawn to dusk, eat scraps, and reproduce their families on the street and go to work again the next day, Western workers expected living wages, decent living conditions, and failing that economised by stopping having children. The culture of national pride, mutual responsibility, and compassion were obstructing his employers profits. Health care meant that workers sometimes lived decades after their working lives were over, being supported by taxes in health care and pensions the elite could use in other ways.
The task he had been set was to dissolve the culture of mutual support and compassion and institute policies to kill off the surplus workforce who held out for decent pay and conditions to be replaced by the more amenable slaves, now a glut on the world labour market.
Dissolving national boundaries had been the first step. A false flag nationalist group had then been created to equate nationalism with xenophobia and fascism, the latter anathema to the general populace. Utopian dreams of world peace had then been disseminated widely over the media and through the education system taking the credit for the then comfortable and stable social conditions, the heritage of a successfully run nation state. Then the fairy tale was spread that but for the existence of the unaccountable, trans-national government, national identity would have caused further wars. The Controller smiled at that one. Of course, it had been necessary to first remove history as a school subject and dilute the news to trivia and propaganda to disarray the general populations reality perspective. There was no reason for politically stable flourishing democratic nations with broadly the same culture to go to war. But to make sure the impression of conflict resulting from nation states did appear to be the case the new trans-national government deliberately included within its boundaries failing states of notable poverty and corruption with historical and ongoing political, religious and ethnic conflict. If there isn’t a problem, create one. Dissolving the boundaries between countries powered up all the criminal networks and enabled every problem in every land to immediately disperse and take root everywhere. Free movement of labour between the previous nations in the new trans-national state with porous borders, propagandised as an absolute right, enabled mass world migration into the new “country”. Migration from the most dysfunctional, anarchic and corrupt countries in the world was encouraged and assisted. Western women needed to be brought down a peg or two. Third world countries knew women’s appropriate role as sex providers, reproducers of men, and domestic slaves.
The news media censored or down-played any story describing the increasing mayhem and social disruption, only presenting stories that supported the view that the new system was working perfectly. Every opportunity was taken and invented to “prove” that the present day system was an improvement on the previous. Elderly people who persisted in arguing that in fact the previous system had worked better – better education, better healthcare, better work with better pay, conditions and pensions, better transport, better services, better accommodation, better policing, better cultural opportunities, better community, were ignored and sidelined. The new generation knew better. It was about the only thing they had learnt in school. And now tertiary education had been restored to the preserve of the privileged elite, and the opportunities for self education had been closed off, one by one, they would never learn to question the parameters within which biased information was presented to them. Besides, even with a university education they would need higher degrees in psychology, sociology, history, politics, business, marketing, economics, drama, advertising, journalism, criminology, anthropology, social psychology, religion, the study of cults and brainwashing, group dynamics, statistics, medicine, and covering all specialisms within each subject, to start to grasp the massive con trick being practised against them. No individual had those resources – but the Controller’s employers had.
A new taboo was invented preventing discussion of what was happening. Anything touching on the subject of the disruption resulting from the changes was conflated with racism, dishonest and insulting to the native populace who were heterogeneous in background, nationally and racially and world-renowned for their tolerance.
Removing life supporting services was not done directly as this could have provoked a reaction. Changes were introduced piecemeal, in small steps, ignored or down-played by the media. Removing Wardens from Sheltered Housing was introduced without fanfare. The results in ill and vulnerable elderly dying due to absence of a Warden to check up on them were kept out of the newspapers. As the elderly no longer down-sized to Sheltered Accommodation as there was no-one to look after them, the vacant flats were turned over to disruptive tenants to stress the remaining elderly into early deaths.
Simultaneously with demand being at its highest, hospital beds and nursing staff were reduced to the lowest numbers ever. GP’s services were reduced, removed or made unobtainable. Ambulance services were cut, and the age of the person needing the ambulance was always asked so that if it was an elderly person delays of an hour or more could be made, increasing the likelihood of death.
In everyone’s life there are areas of particular vulnerability. People get over them if they have the resources and social support. Without the resources and social support the consequences can be fatal. The two most vulnerable stages are youth at the transition from school into work, and the elderly in the transition from work into retirement. Remove social support from these two areas and the death rate surges.
For the young, trashed educational standards and the removal of discipline in schools resulted in young people leaving schools without employable skills. To make sure they couldn’t afford to support themselves even if they found work, their wages were set at derisory levels. Young people generally discriminated against by private landlords were also denied access to social and subsidised housing. The only vulnerable group excluded. Former criminals and the mentally ill were given preference for social housing on the basis that private landlords discriminated against them, in order to focus crime and social disruption on the poor and away from the privileged, and to save money. Social negatives can be turned into social positives by channelling problems at groups you wish to sabotage.
That took care of the young.
The other end of the age spectrum was more of a problem. People who had worked through their lives and neared retirement were enjoying a mainly problem free transition from work to pension, able to retain their lifetime savings, and live reasonably well for the next thirty years.
Despite job shortages and the 20 billions injected into the economy by the new migrants, the retirement age was put back. This caught many in the over-fifties age group in a trap. Failing health or the failing health of their partner along with the very competitive job market forced many out of work. Formerly sickness benefit or employment benefit would have carried these people into retirement, but everything possible was done to prevent access. Fifty and sixty year olds, in failing health and/or having caring responsibilities now found themselves without financial support. Those that had savings could manage for a year or two, but eventually most would be unable to afford their rent or pay the running costs of their homes. Inevitably this caused fatalities, directly and indirectly, saving on paying out pensions.
Every support structure was undermined or removed. Organisations whose origins were to deal with specific problems, most notably charities, had their original purposes removed to be replaced by propaganda fronts. Homeless charities no longer provided accommodation, but only talked about it. Mental health charities stopped providing drop-in centres and respite care, but were generous with free advice. Charity shops became professionally run profit making businesses, maximising profit rather than selling second hand goods at nominal prices.
Methods learnt from support charities dealing with the despairing and suicidal were transferred to other institutions to generate despair and provoke suicide. One charity running a help-line whose policy was to delicately ask callers at some point “Have you ever thought of suicide?” to enable a despairing person to talk about a taboo subject, and get them to talk about their problems and gain perspective, had this technique hi-jacked by welfare agencies, to “put ideas” into desperate people’s heads, to “nudge” them into something they might not have thought of, in a similar way to secret police agent provocateurs presenting crime opportunities to people they wish to set up.
Disruption, creating stress, manufacturing social instability and generating fear – constant social churn was the mechanism. Keep attacking the enemy on every front, don’t allow them to rest for a moment to take stock of the situation to identify where all the problems are coming from – one single source.
The statistics were in though zealously protected from public view. Deaths in sheltered housing due to absence of wardens; deaths of elderly due to ambulance delays; deaths of elderly and young in hospitals due to shortage of medical attention and hospital beds; deaths of elderly due to not being able to afford heating; deaths of elderly denied supportive care; deaths of young homeless; starvation of people denied welfare benefits they were entitled to; over all increased death rates caused by poverty, stress, homelessness and destitution.
Soon the native population wouldn’t have a leg to stand on. Harassed on every side, without living wage jobs, unable to find affordable accommodation, denied police protection, medical care, welfare and pensions. The redundant population was on its way out, with every assistance from the establishment.
The new slaves were arriving daily by the bucket loads. The nation states dismantled, their evils confined to history. The new world Utopia was on its way as is already being experienced in Europe. All the world’s workers reduced to the gutter. Just two social classes. The only two needed. Masters and slaves.
