Securitization theory: truth without silence

(by Ben Bartee | The Daily Bell) – The police have come a long way since the days of good boy Barney Fife.

Once upon a time, cops were primarily tasked with things like catching murderers and rapists and protecting property.

They were always used, of course, whenever necessary, to protect the interests of the state, but then again, the interests of the state were not always as obviously nefarious and illegitimate as they are today.

The expansion of the scope of law enforcement is largely explained by the theory of securitization.

As a result of this process, peculiar new classes of law enforcers have emerged: Public Health Officers© and green cops throughout the West.

Securitization theory: the arrival of new threats to security

The basic premise of securitization theory in political science is that, given the opportunity, a state will endlessly invent new “threats” to security as a justification for exercising greater power outside the constraints of the normal political process:

“The theory of securitization shows us that National security policy is not a natural occurrence, but carefully designated by politicians and decision makers. According to the securitization theory, political issues are constituted as extreme security issues to be dealt with urgently when they have been labeled ‘dangerous’… by a ‘securitizing actor’ who has the social and institutional power to move the issue ‘beyond politics’.

The process, in a nutshell, works like this:

The government identifies a new existential “threat,” legitimate or exaggerated, whether natural or cynically engineered by the state itself. Corporate media and the corporate state stoke fear about the threat into the hearts and minds of a gullible public. In the fog of panic, the state shrewdly supplies itself with new authority and resources to combat the threat, thus increasing its power.

Threats change, but whether it’s “domestic terrorism,” COVID-19, or climate change, the process remains the same.

Once you download the securitization process plan, analyzing the state’s actions in real time becomes as easy as reading lines from a script.

COVID-19 Reframed as a ‘National Security Issue’

The average American before 9/11 would not have believed that a fake flu could ever be conceived of as a “threat to national security.”

But September 11 changed everything. Securitization became routine.

Apparatuses of the corporate state, such as the Rand Corporation, were ready to attack the new public health emergency of COVID-19 © and turn it into a “national security” issue. Here, the Rand Corporation compares the hysteria of COVID-19 to World War II:

“COVID-19 is the greatest threat to the United States to materialize in more than a century. To put that in perspective, World War II, which many consider to have been an existential threat, claimed an average of 9,000 American lives a month… I when the nation’s security is endangered, the situation becomes a matter of national security and must be treated as such. “

America used to go to war with the Nazis; now he goes to war against microbes and the climate.

Security issues require securitization actors: enforcement mechanisms to counter the threat. Hence the Public Health Officer©. Hence the biomedical martial law.

The rise of the Public Health Officer©

Meet the new frontline manager of the biomedical state: the Public Health Officer©.

This miserable creature is here to make sure you take your pictures, wear your mask, and most importantly, keep your mouth shut.

It is given full enforcement power and broad jurisdiction to enforce Public Health© orders, such as:

“Curfew: Regulates the times during which a person must remain indoors.” “Social Distancing: Keeping Distance Between People to Prevent the Spread of Disease.” “Quarantine: restricts the movement of people who have symptoms or are potentially infected by a disease.” “Self-quarantine: the voluntary act of self-quarantine.”* “Isolation: separates the sick from the sick”. “Shelter-in-place (stay-at-home): Requires people to stay in a safe, non-public place (home) except for essential activities and work, until otherwise directed.”

(* In a way, “self-quarantine” is both voluntary and mandatory by a Public Health Official© if you don’t do it yourself.)

Here’s one in action:

Here, the burly, masked Canadian Public Health Officer © detains a pair of overly polite Canadian travelers, confiscates their passports and demands proof of vaccination for “breach” of COVID protocols. He cites the broad power granted in the Canadian Quarantine Act as the source of his authority.

Is the robot police dog here with an RPG assembled for vaxxed or not vaxxed?

Let’s consider the relevant points:

A.) The corporate state controls the police.

B.) The corporate state, from Australia to Canada to Great Britain, insists on vaccine mandates and has imposed draconian blockades for years.

C.) We’ve seen the hell they’ve unleashed on anti-mandate protesters around the world using flesh-and-blood dogs.

Sounds like a recipe for more of the same, only with robots instead of Rover.

How long until the RPG dog falls for you?

Successor to Public Health Officer©: ‘Green Police’

France recently created a legion of “green police” brigades to combat climate change criminals:

“Gérald Darmanin, who serves as France’s interior minister, has announced that he intends to create 3,000 posts for new ‘green police’ officials, a measure he has deemed necessary to deal with climate change.”

European and American “green police” will enforce the increasingly common reduction of basic human dignity to the level of North Korea, such as forcing shop owners to turn off lights at night and limiting heating and air conditioning.

“Just Following Orders”: No dice

“Just following orders” is the oldest and most pathetic excuse for government criminals to excuse their aberrant behavior, one that didn’t save the Nazi camp guards at Nuremberg, and it won’t this time either if we don’t let it.

Nuremberg II is long overdue and should be a pillar of the platform of all opposition candidates.

As for individual action, break free with the parallel economy.
