The Hegelian Dialectic and British Political Parties
My very first Google search on “Hegelian Dialectic” today (as I looked for an intro to what is to follow) came up trumps …
Hegelian dialectic is ‘PROBLEM-REACTION-SOLUTION’ and how it works is like this:
- The government creates or exploits a problem in which attributes blame to others.
- The people react by asking the government for protection and help (safety and security) to help solve the problem.
- Then, the government offers the solution that was planned by them long before the crisis occurred.
The above meme is an example that many of us who challenge the “official narrative” have experienced first-hand. My own favourite example, pertinent to this article, and ironically one that ex-Green Party spokesman, David Icke (who these past thirty years has been labelled as a “conspiracy theorist”) has proposed, is:
- The powers that be persuade (or try) we the people that we have a Coronavirus crisis and a Climate catastrophe on our hands.
- We the people (or most of us) are made sufficiently afraid to invite said powers that be (government and their controllers) to come up with solutions for making us feel secure.
- Said hidden hand oblige. coming up with something they planned all along, which includes loss of liberties.
This past week, I have been somewhat pre-occupied, albeit as a neutral yet interested member of the public, with the Local Elections that took place two days ago. I occurs to me that all of the main parties (Conservative and Labour and to which I add LibDems and Greens) have brought into the Hegelian dialectic. Of the parties that have not, Reform UK with their anti-lockdown agenda and Confelicty (their leader having left the Labour Party over their policy on vaccine passports) have least succumbed and yet both polling least well in said elections, suggesting the public at large have yet to wake up to the fact they are being had by them who want a Great Reset and a New World Order and, given the low voter turnout, are largely unconvinced their vote will make much of a difference.
In my politicking and convivial chatting with activists from the above parties (plus Independent but not with the LibDems and UK Reform, who did not cross my path) the concerns I allude to did not arise, because issues, such as Mrs Smith’s concerns over potholes in roads and Mr Jones’ concerns over cracks in pavements, seemed more pressing. However, I did offer this question as one to be asked at the St. Luke’s hustings (part of my foray into local politics): “The past two years have thrown up extra challenges because of Covid. Do you think the Council’s approach was right dealing with the issues arising and what should it be moving forward? For example, when it comes to vaccinations, a lot of effort has been spent encouraging people to be vaccinated, notably among the homeless community”. We decided, however, that discretion was the better part of valour and opted not to ask that question as it wasn’t one we expected much in the way of a meaningful response.
Many things should concern we the people in our political engaging but given where the world appears to be heading, the matters raised here should be high on our lists. While life goes on, and politics is what it is – a broken system that we struggle to make the best off, I commend these thoughts to friends from the main parties. To the Greens, I say: I love some of your ideas about a better environment, transport etc., and your call for more honesty, but it seems to me you have led the way when it comes to falling into the Hegelian trap.
To my Labour and Conservative friends, I say – try being honest with we the people. To my LibDem friends, I say – stop sitting on the fence. To my Green friends, I again say – I love your idealism but … To the Reform Party, I say – I had hopes for you now Brexit has been done but, if you don’t give a better account of what you are about, I cannot yet take you seriously. To my Confelicity friends, I say – I love the idea of trying to make everyone happy, even though experience shows that is a nigh impossibility but, as you go forward, your position of Covid and Climate agenda antipathy, along with that of championing free speech, may well be what may attract disillusioned voters to your cause, as they wake up to what Herr Hegel’s philosophy is about and how we have all been had. To all politicians, I say – see through and oppose the lies we the people are being subject to on a daily basis and develop some backbone by asking the questions that need asking and acting accordingly.
