This post is about a type. The man with dead eyes below is known to Americans, not a great deal different in mind and persona to those described further down – not a bad graphic representation to bear in mind:
Here’s one of our own – Julia the Hutt:
Take a gander at these also at some point:
Julia at OoL, [the good Julia, not the CP one in the pic above], has a piece about collection of rubbish and a council issuing an ultimatum to residents on the collecting of rubbish. To put bags out at the wrong time incurs heavy penalties.
There is a process going on which, to a point, has always been the case in Britain – the notion of ‘it’s the rules’ and ‘we’ve always done that’. There is also the idea of prefects appointed from the plebs to wield power over their fellows and do the bidding of the rulers.
This finds its most fertile ground where a society is highly layered, with a sort of caste system, such as in India and in the English class system. Bureaucratic spread is a disease of all western societies today, not just those layered societies, it’s part of global socialism.
What we’ve had here since the mid-Blair years is a definite hardening of this supercilious, ‘we’re above you’ attitude in jumped-up officials to the point of petty pedantry, with the idea of civic pride long abandoned and combative powerplays in its place.
The plebs themselves have also become worse on the whole with this infantilization and consequent being bossed about. So when these nobodies in council offices look down their noses at us, they’re not without some justification, in the sense that the leftist educational paucity and the low quality of everything from building regulations in tower blocks to entertainment have created a society of demi-brain-people who need to be ordered about by Nanny or else they’ll poop their own pants.
The notion of an Englishman growing up well-educated and taking his place on the 8.13 to Charing Cross each morning, conversing in an educated manner about his brainwashing from the dead tree Times and Telegraph whilst sitting in rickety carriages – that’s largely gone.
Which leads to where the money from council taxes does go. One thing these limited people do is imagine themselves sharp fiscal managers, so money is skimmed off, not for services in the least – the idea of service does not occur – but for inflated salaries for ‘top people’ and for investing unwisely in places like Iceland.
Suddenly, ‘top people’ are speaking their idea of bizspeak, ‘rolling out this’ and cutting back on that. And most of the wasteful schemes are of little or no value, with the prime functions of councils being ignored. See Private Eye rotten boroughs passim for details.
Some of the best indicators that such has always been, up to a point, is from Yes Minister from the 80s, which shows there’s nothing new under the sun but today, there is just this added edge to it, that’s maybe the best way to put it.
And that edge comes from Common Purpose or whatever its successor is. You only have to listen to the jumped-up Julia Middleton for a minute to see it in operation – ambitious, limited brains, promoted beyond the Peter Principle and their egos stroked.
The evil muvvers above who do run things create their bureaucratic army this way – Cressida Dick is a perfect illustration of it.
And the guiding principle is ‘leading beyond authority’, which was on Common Purpose’s letterheads until the term was exposed. The whole organization springs from Tavistock and Demos, David Bell and Geoff Mulgan two key figures in it for so long. [Careful in checking Bell out as there are two David Bells.]
So the highly overinflated courses ‘the chosen’ were sent on at taxpayer expense were all about groupthink:
They were about getting people – us – to do what they neither wished for nor knew they ever needed.
And those running it are appointees, not elected. They’re in every council office – there was an illustration of this in Sheffield South some years back blogged on in posts passim. One of our readers wanted details under FOA, what followed were phone calls between fellow CP officers in key positions – the correspondence is signposted within this post:
This explains part of the bureaucratic wastage of council taxes.
Lord Stoddart of Swindon asked questions in parliament about how much taxpayer money went to Common Purpose courses – it could be researched at one time:
… but naturally has now been taken down. These are devious and ‘criminal’ minds.
The word ‘criminal’ in inverted commas is deliberately, not wildly used here because the whole notion of ‘leading beyond authority’ is a criminal concept in itself:
It was understood, around 2009/10, to mean that people were in place in every key role in Britain to take over control once the crash and/or conflagration they’d worked so hard to produce finally came. I likened it at the time to the Pod People or to a cancer. So many pundits better placed than I have written on it – see the groupthink link above for some further links to these and don’t forget the links at the top of this post.
Today, we see it in the top jobs going to Common Purpose grads of limited brain who actually seem to think they’re the brightest and the best, ready to take over in the global socialist new world.
Just to dwell for one more moment
It is critical to an understanding of what we’re up against to see the Common Purpose brain for what it is. Agatha Christie wrote of it in N or M  – it’s a limited brain which has previously had no power or position. suddenly, due to a willingness to walk over your grandmother for advancement, you find yourself [already indoctrinated by left liberalism, PCism] ‘trained’ at CP camps into believing you are a key officer in the global revolution, that the whole thing will break down if you’re not there.
It is a satanic playing on the deadly sins in RL. And those people are hardwired, they cannot be reasoned with, as Yuri Bezmenov pointed out. There is no pity in their Cressida Dick eyes – you are an ant, you will do as your betters – them – tell you. Which comes down from above anyway.
Coming back to Julia [the good one]’s idea that if we pay council taxes, then we should get some services for it – this is just laughable in CP eyes. But not in ours. And this is what we’re up against. I’m not sure that too many people know, even today, who is running things in the lower echelons you and I run into each day.
