The Delusions of Demagogues

In 1774, Louis XVI, the then 20 year old last king of France, gave his lovely, if flawed, young Austrian wife Marie Antoinette a châteaux in the grounds of the Palace of Versailles called le Petit Trianon , for her entertainment, and perhaps to compensate her for his own, later cured, failings in the marriage bed. Le Petit Trianon is a delightful mini-palace designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel at the request of King Louis XV for his Mistress Madame de Pompadour, but following her death shortly after its construction became the home of her successor Madame Du Barry.

This beautiful châteaux remains a popular French tourist attraction, and is celebrated as marking the transition from the earlier Rococo style of architecture into the neoclassical form which became popular in the middle to late 18th Century. By all accounts the young queen fell in love with Le Petit Trianon, and set about transforming it into her own fantasy world.

At that point in the fading twilight of the French monarchy, the aristocracy, and in particular the doomed royal family lived lives so alien to the world around them, that they had all but lost contact with the reality which would soon rise up and destroy them. Le Petit Trianon, and the world which Marie Antoinette created within its grounds was one of the most obvious and extreme examples of this.

At a time when the real peasants of France were starving and crying out for bread, in her little world the queen created a pastoral paradise which did not, and had never existed outside the pages of a children's fairy tale.

Around the gardens of her châteaux plump shepherdesses and crinoline gowned milkmaids led sheep and calves with silk bows around their necks across the well kept lawns romanced by handsome young shepherds and farmers dressed in pristine smocks carrying garlands of flowers for the hair of their maidens. Amongst this this scene, and serenaded by flute players, the queen would stroll with her courtiers and young admirers, wearing gowns of the finest silks and muslin styled to appear like peasant clothing.

As she drove through the real countryside of starving and angry peasants in rags with the curtains of her carriage tightly drawn, Marie Antoinette was happy to ignore reality in favour of the gilded fantasy she had created, and may even, in those final days before the fall, have begun to believe that her make believe world was reality, and that the other world, the one outside was the fake.

In the grounds of Le Petit Trianon, the doomed last Queen of France built a world based on childish dreams, and a frustrated romantic fantasy. She saw only what she wanted to see, and pretended that what she did not did not exist.

Move forward some two hundred and thirty years and a new ruling class, no more in touch with reality than the one swept away by the revolution of 1789-99, are building their own Petit Trianons, fantasy worlds populated with unreal people playing the pretend roles they want to see them play, and where fake truths become law.

The difference is that this deluded and greedy ruling class is not confined to France, but rules across Britain, North America, Canada, Australia and Western Europe, and the fantasy world they are seeking to create is not a romanticised, pastoral, chocolate box version of the countryside, but a multicultural, multiracial society, where the old and, to their mind, undeserving culture surrenders in cheering delight, to the imposition of new and alien cultures. As in the French Queen's fantasy, reality is as they want it to be, and anything which does not fit that daydream is hidden behind the thick curtains of their carriage, or the smoked glass of their cars as they hurtle past it.

Like Marie Antoinette, they too employ actors to play their fake creations, but their young actors do not pose as shepherds leading scrubbed and scented lambs on ribbons, they play fine and noble young black and Asian heroes, fighting and defeating white villains. Their actresses do not play milkmaids but feisty mixed race politicians and ethnic minority lawyers fighting against a failing, racist, and dying society. They appear in TV commercials, where every white person's best friend is black and slightly brighter than them, where every school boy bringing home his friends for a sausage supper has a black buddy, and 80% of all child actors are mixed race. Like the cast behind the walls of le Petit Trianon, they are idealised, they are perfect, and they are essentially fake.

To the ruling class, the delusion must be protected by all means possible, and any opposition ridiculed and vilified. To raise doubts about the new truths is to be instantly accused of a hatred which will then tarnish any more you say.

Beyond all else, any evidence which could prove the make believe to be the lie it is must be erased and become what might be termed a “non-fact”.

Only this week it was revealed that when a 2001 Home office report, produced at the very outset of this governments crazy uncontrolled immigration policy which has resulted in an unparalleled change to the racial demographic of Britain, revealed uncomfortable links between immigration and crime, those references were removed, as if by removing them the facts will become non-facts and will go away.

In 2007, a report in the New York Times revealed that scientists were becoming increasingly concerned that research into DNA was raising the possibility that it would ultimately reveal differences between the races, a claim which it is a tenet of multicultural ideology to deny.

To quote from the report:

Such developments are providing some of the first tangible benefits of the genetic revolution. Yet some social critics fear they may also be giving long-discredited racial prejudices a new potency. The notion that race is more than skin-deep, they fear, could undermine principles of equal treatment and opportunity that have relied on the presumption that we are all created equal.

“We are living through an era of the ascendance of biology, and we have to be very careful,” said William Henry Gates Jr., director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University. “We will all be walking a fine line between using biology and allowing it to be abused.”

What Gates, who as you may recall is the friend of President Obama's with the unfortunate habit of screaming at policemen, is actually saying is that “if the research might produce results we won't like, then we should not do the research, or if we do, we should suppress or distort the findings”.

When before in our history has the purpose of science been to hide the truth rather than to reveal it?

However, we see this same approach in so many areas, our so called news sources only report news which proliferates the fantasy whilst suppressing or blatantly lying about anything which throws the flawed official orthodoxy into doubt.

Our politicians lie to us with a straight face, insisting that we all benefit from immigration, that immigrants are the main victims of racism, and that what is happening to this country is not doing untold and possibly irreparable damage. Shameless falsehoods which even they can not really believe.

So called historians, and those who pose as historians, make up fairy tales about our history, which our rulers pretend to believe as they lend legitimacy to the hokum they are selling us.

The fantasy is designed to promote a fatally flawed prospectus, and it has no more basis in truth than the pastoral mirage which Marie Antoinette had sufficient wealth and power to build in her garden. It is a dream which can never come to pass because it is not real.

Unfortunately for our leaders, and for their dangerous daydream, history has a way of repeating itself, and dawn will come no matter how you may cling to a dream. They should fear for their dream will not come true, and it will soon be revealed for what it is. It is then that reality may cast them into the void, as it did to the last queen of France.

I have said a number of times that all of the Obama administration and most of Congress should be decorating the light poles in Washington, DC. I think a similar statement could be assembled for the UK as well. There is a well established prescription for traitors.
