"The time has come" the Walrus said. To speak of many things. Of Sailing ships, Candle wax, Cabbages and Kings....
So just as I suspected the Silencing of the Lambs has begun. First through removal / blocking of accounts on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc.. and quickly the attacks began on the wider internet based services, such as GAB. The assault on GAB was unprecedented and executed so quickly. Domain registrar, hosting providers, ISP's all coordinated together to hit the KILL switch on GAB.
A lesson to us all, and perhaps a catalyst for ZeroNet. Anyone of the services that closed GAB out from the internet would have been enough to bring any site down, and yet none, and indeed not even all of those efforts could have effected ZeroNet in the slightest. No DNS, Hosting, Fixed ISP connection.
That what is so exciting about ZeroNet it's everywhere and nowhere all at the same time, protected by redundancy, anonymous, like an apparition, ghostly and intangible and yet still visible to those with eyes to see.
The Third Reich
Western governments are in a quandary, their short sighted policies have already sown the seeds of their demise. Now history repeats itself. Many EU member states are enacting policies not seen since the days of the Third Reich in Germany. The division across communities is entrenched and the tension is mounting. The resentment and hatred building on both sides. The left liberal agenda, is nothing but the new face of Facism. How interesting that Winston Churchill said just after World War II that the new face of Facism would come in the disguise of Liberalism.
Silencing has begun with the views of the right, but quickly it will extend to reach even those with centre right conservative points of view. All the while the the chasm between left and right in society widens.
Jihad and the Black Banners
Whilst left and right divide and broach formation in preparedness for battle, silently the hidden warriors of Islam continue to prepare. You see; for many Muslims they believe that they are already at War with the west. They know it as the prophecy of the Black Banners. Muslims believe that the flags of ISIS marching throughout the middle east is a clear sign that they are in the "End Times" and that what stands before them is the final "Jihad".
Our insensitivity, and ignorance in the west, only seeks to make the situation worse, because throughout our media we liberally sprinkle the terms "Jihad", "Jihadi", "Jihadist". Confirming to the Muslim community that yes you are in a "Holy War" with the West.
The War on Terror
The War on Terror has failed, in fact it would of been better named "Bring the Reign of Terror". Soon those on the right will let their frustrations get the better of them. With no voice and no outlet, and the un-appointed internet police ( Twitter, Facebook, et al ) silencing their voices, removing their channels and breaking their connections. The Right will gather, and sadly, they will act independently, bringing attacks and terror, and these will be met by attacks and terror from the left, and of course from the Islamic community too.
ZeroNet a new hope
My hope is that instead, the groups being censored, closed down and closed out will find ZeroNet, and gather again into a larger community. They will communicate, blog, vlog, chat, status update and will unite to become one again.
Through ZeroNet they will collaborate, coordinate and together they will forge the political will, and political strength to re-take their nations, and bring back our true democracy.
Perhaps better still they will bring about a true meritocracy. A community of the people, who act in good faith and honour for the people. That are judged on their deeds and words combined. A community of political leaders that are lifted by their communities, rather than corporations. A new breed of leader, who understands the value of contribution, and charity. Leaders who understand that all people across the world are equal. Leaders with enough intelligence to realise that communities need a "Hand Up" and not a "Hand Out". Who understand that immigration destroys the migrating communities, to provide exploitable resources for the receiving community. A methodology which brings tragedy to both sides, and only benefits the elite few.
We are in such desperate need of a new, uncensored, truly free and open platform, upon which we can forge a new world, and a better future.
Just like the story of King Arthur and Sword in the Stone. ZeroNet is an Anvil, upon which the people might forge the mightiest of swords...
Let us hope, and pray they find it.
