AV8 - Brian Gerrish
Breaking Free ...
from the Cult of Transformational NuSpeak
"In my studies of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is ...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A variety of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to." - Theodore Dalrymple
This quote was sent to me by chance the very day I started to consider my talk for Alternative View 8 - the point at which my mind was once again focusing on the drivers of the change agenda in UK and Western society. Change that many now regard as an increasingly dark and destructive attack on our minds, culture, views, values and morality. The words of Anthony Daniels writing under his pen name Theodore Dalrymple thus struck an immediate chord with me. In Britain today we are subject to a far more sophisticated and dangerous attack than just communist propaganda or political correctness - even where we might label political correctness itself as 'Cultural Marxism.' I label the new weapon 'Transformational NuSpeak' and warn of its present and real danger to us all, particularly when coupled with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and the latest mental reframing through 'Mindfulness'.
Join me at AV8 as we peel apart the layers of the cult of 'Transformational NuSpeak' to break free of its tentacles of mind control, using just observation, common sense and humour. Have an appropriate day.
