Do you even Tank Man?

Apparently the tanks were leaving the city in this photo – no one’s sure of Tank Man’s intentions.

At the conclusion of my Adventures in Communism series, I boldly said:

. . . I’ll tell you this: if any communist dictator tries to take over Australia and turn it into Eritrea, I will shoot him dead or die in the attempt.

Life comes at you fast.

This unprecedented totalitarianism is wildly popular in Australia. Indeed, surveys show the terrified population want tougher restrictions, not lighter ones.

The most popular premier completely sealed off Western Australia to the rest of the country.

He’d be more popular still if he ordered police on outback roads to shoot anyone who ventures too near the border.

Of course, this is how totalitarianism takes hold everywhere. I forgot that when I was shooting off my big mouth.

There’s never a despised, moustache-twirling villain hatching a devious plan to take control of the country until he’s stymied at the last minute by the Famous Four.

Rather, the Famous Four agree over steaming mugs of hot chocolate and thick chunks of warm toast dripping with butter that the strong man is in fact a fine fellow and they wish he’d crack down harder on their enemies, especially those suspicious foreign-looking men who are forever creeping around the English countryside.

The Bolsheviks had enough backing among key workers to seize control of the government and enough support among the peasants to win the Civil War.

Hitler never quite won an outright majority through fair elections, but he had sufficient public support to gain power among a population exhausted by chaos, poverty and humiliation.

As for the Boss himself, no one blinked when Isaias took control of Eritrea after winning the war of independence. Many already knew of his dictatorial and murderous propensities, but what of it? He was a national hero!

If you look around the world today, you’ll see that the heavy-handed leaders cracking down on cafes and recreational sport are receiving accolades from most of their frightened constituents.

In fact, now that I think of it, current totalitarian leaders are quite a bit more popular than the historical average for incoming dictators.

An exception is the Victorian premier. He scared the horses a bit too much and now they’re angry with him because, despite one of the most insane lockdowns on Earth, there are still around ten new infections per day.

Would you dare defy this man?

Edit: there have no been no new infections for more than a week now and he’s back in everyone’s good books. I had a tweet mentioning that Dan signed up to the Belt and Road shared by a big account. I considered deleting it straight away but resisted, and the vitriol I copped from normie Victorians was intense.

Totalitarian leaders are indeed taking over Australia. It’s put up or shut up time, Nikolai. What are you going to do?

Nothing.

If Australians want this, they deserve to have it – good and hard.

Screw you guys, I’m outta here.

    It must be sad to come to this realization about your home country. No matter what happens with the still ongoing election in the US, there was at least an inspiring takeaway in that fact that almost half of the voters just don’t believe the MSM anymore and voted for Orangeman anyway. Possibly more than half if there really was enough fraud to change the result.

    I saw your recent exchange with Matt who I guess is American but hates this places and despises Americans for being “dumb.” We’re certainly not all the sharpest tools in the shed, but aside from these supposed dummies seeing through the MSM propaganda by the tens of millions, I also notice that when I mention that the reaction to the virus is ridiculous and not worth it, almost everyone agrees. I live in one of the bluest states in the country, so I imagine it’s even better elsewhere. I don’t know what’s up with Aussies, who I’ve often heard brag about their superior education system and intelligence in comparison to us. Maybe it’s the “clever people are stupid” dynamic you discussed in one of your greatest posts. Regardless, I’ve found a lot of inspiration and a lot to admire about my countrymen in the midst of all the stupidity and malice we’ve gotten from the twits in charge this year.

      That’s just how Matt talks as you can see on his blog.

      America is not YUUUUGE and has masses of people who are exceedingly different from and cannot stand one another. And routinely steal all the cleverest and most inventive people from other countries and import all their rejects and criminals.

      Americans are smart AND we’re morons. We’re dead sensible, and cut-me-own-throat fools.And we lie about each other and use “stupid” to describe people who smell funny and vote the wrong way. Even Americans don’t have a clue who and what Americans are.

    N. What are Eritrean expats like? Can you speak with them plainly about how screwed up their country/leader is?
    I’d be v-e-r-y careful criticising Australia to Australians.
    Keep up the good work!

    Dan, we Germans, with our extra-long words, would describe as a “Backpfeifengesicht” (a face you want to slap). Other than that, he’s probably well read in the Frankfurt School pamphlets and Alinsky.
    Same issue with Merkel in Germany, thoroughly trained Marxist using post-modernist language.

    I always have doubts when “the polls” say people love Big Brother. But then I look out my window at all the people wearing masks while driving & walking alone and yeah.

    “Totalitarian leaders are indeed taking over Australia. It’s put up or shut up time, Nikolai. What are you going to do? Nothing.”

    Malicious compliance for me. If the Elites do impose a national mask mandate on USA then I have Guy Fawkes ready to go and “This Does Not Work” in the wings. Still debating the “Yellow Star of David with ‘Juden’ scrawled on the side” mask.

      You’d be my hero if you went with the Juden mask, although I don’t want bad things to happen to you, so maybe best not to. I like the idea of having something like “this doesn’t actually do anything” or something to that effect scrawled on your mask too.

      Less daring, but you can always just wear a bandanna. Gives you a cool outlaw kind of look, much better than the standard “face diaper” medical mask.

    I share your disappointment when I look at my country… Yes, half (more in my opinion) voted against the religion of china virus with a 99%+ survival rate… But roughly half voted for more lockdowns, masks, rioting and looting, anti American rhetoric etc… I see the end coming. People have become lazy and entitled. Big government provides them with the comfy warm blanket and cup of starbucks they feel they deserve. They think all you have to do is give up your freedom for a life of ease and security. They are willing to make that trade.

      I get you, but another thing to think about is how many of those people who voted globohomo are actual Americans, in the sense of having roots here who go back before 1776. Some of them, but not many, I’d guess, and of those, relatively few men. Just having US citizenship and the right to vote isn’t the same thing as actually being American.

        I agree, but hadn’t thought about that. I do have roots, a direct line of grandfathers going back to the beginning.. They’d be more than a little disappointed knowing what they gave up and how hard they’d fought only to give it all away now…

          I don’t know if you’ve read Vox Day at all. He’s a thin-skinned egomaniac and can be unpleasant at times, but his ideas on ethnic nationalism are spot on in my opinion. I don’t mean any offense when I say that people who aren’t Anglo-Saxon with roots in the US going back to 1776 “Paper Americans” or “Fake Americans” as Vox does, but when you become aware of it, you realize that they are different from heritage American stock. Not necessarily bad, just different, but letting in countless millions and granting them citizenship was never a good idea. It was problematic enough when it was mostly western Europeans of various types, but now we’re seeing the endgame of allowing massive numbers of people from entirely alien cultures to immigrate and obtain citizenship and vote. It’s always been a problem, but it’s reached its nadir now. That’s why you see the mobs of fake Americans and traitors pulling down statues of the founding fathers rather than calling for a return to their values.

            Lots of the statue-pullers are heritage whites, too.
            I agree somewhat on immigration but there’s more to it than that.

    Is it too late to stay and fight? Fight for what?

    You have an interesting perspective Mr. V. Where you *are now* you are what is destroying Australia.. A foreigner with no commitment and no skin in the game. But if the local powers that be got nationalist fever and declaimed: You have to go back! What would you do?

    I find your story fascinating. I hope you figure it out.
