The Politician Steve Baker gave a fantastic speech during the final discussions about the Corona Virus Bill when it sped through the Commons. He stated categorically that, although they were not allowing a dictatorship, they are implementing at least a dystopian society.
I don’t think I am alone in having to consult a dictionary to discover the concise meaning of that strange term dystopian’, but it simply means ‘relating to or denoting an imagined State or society where there is great suffering or injustice’.
So let us explore certain statements, and then see if they comply with that strange and threatening terminology
A society in which you are investigated for your thinking when you openly question whether men can “be” women is a dystopia. When, in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Lady Macbeth calls on evil spirits to help in this task by saying “Come, you spirits/that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,/and fill from the crown to the toe top-full/ of direst cruelty. Make thick my blood./Stop up th’ access and passage to remorse”; This speech reveals her willingness to banish femininity and become like a man who kills mercilessly and without remorse. But that was in the realms of make-believe.
What we see in this present ‘dystopian’ society are men who wish that others now address them as female, who state that their ‘gender’ is now that of a woman, despite retaining penis, testicles, a male frame, a deep voice and muscular structure which comes with that masculinity. That which they deny is of course patently ludicrous, can a man give birth to a child? Can a man, no matter how many steroids and other drugs they push into their deluded bodies, act in the most feminine and female acts known to humanity by giving birth to that child? Of course they cannot. There are those who suffer from true ‘gender dysphoria’ which is itself akin to a mental illness. But, in this ‘dystopian’ life we are now forced to accommodate, people have been fined and indeed imprisoned for writing about, or addressing a man, a man who states that his gender is that of a female, as a man, or ‘Sir’ or indeed ‘Mister’!
A society in which you are arrested for detaining a man who molests your daughter in public is dystopian. Imagine that you read, or watch a video, about a political activist, a protester against Muslim Rape gangs, a journalist who had taken his family to an outdoor park. He learns from his daughter that a middle-aged man has molested his daughter. Despite the activist knowing that he has been a police target for years, he finds this paedophile, and attempts to detain him; but in the ensuing struggle, he bloodies the perpetrator’s nose. The police are called, and he lays a charge against this paedophile. But instead of arresting the predator, and asking the Activist to make a statement: the police arrest the activist/journalist, and take a statement from the alleged paedophile, and then let him go! But you wouldn’t have heard or read about the circumstances, because only the arrest of the activist/journalist was reported, not of the circumstances preceding that arrest.
What is patently obvious, to me at least, is that the whole thing was a trap, a set-up: for the purposes of entrapping the journalist/activist, because he has been a thorn in the side of the Judicial process, and they were determined to ‘fit him up’!
A society in which it is said to be bigoted with parents objecting to having ageing men dressed and ‘made-up’ as women “dancing and singing to pre-school children in a public library is a dystopia. To further the cause of ‘Diversity’ and of telling primary school kids that homosexuality is not only legal, it is perfectly normal for men to push their penises into other men’s anuses, for women to lie together in some twisted idea of sexual congress and ‘fulfilment’ through the magic phrase of ‘If someone loves someone’, then literally any thing goes! That is dystopian!
A society in which basic observations of reality are forbidden by the use of magic words – “racism” “-phobia” – is dystopian. To make and enhance a Hate Crime Law so that the ‘offender’ is made to attempt to prove his or her innocence when a complaint is made that someone is offended by a speech, a Tweet, a Social Media post. The Hate Crime law is deliberately overturning centuries of British common Law and precedence by stating, categorically, that the accused is guilty, and must attempt to prove his or her innocence. Ludicrous and Dystopian!
A society in which you can be ruined for speaking the truth out loud is dystopian. Sir Roger Scruton was appointed to a Better Housing commission by the Government. He was interviewed by an editor on the New Statesman, and his words were turned inside out, his reputation was trashed, and the Government promptly dismissed him. It was only after The Spectator investigated that the whole piece was found to be a distortion, that he was hastily reinstated. Dystopian!
A society in which the shameful and disgusting are celebrated as virtues is a dystopian one.
A society which has replaced the national home of somewhere with the borderless market of everywhere is a dystopia.
A society in which an invented grievance is a good career move is a dystopia.
A society that penalises the talented and the bright, so that Black or Ethnic minority candidates may be employed in their place in the name of “diversity” is a dystopia.
I rest my case!
