Wikepedia: “‘Enclosure’ or ‘Inclosure’[a] is a term used in English landownership, that refers to the appropriation of “waste[b]” or “common land[c]” enclosing it and by doing so, depriving commoners of their ancient rights of access and privilege.”
I recently viewed a feature from the popular Kings and Generals channel on YouTube, titled: “Enclosure and How the English Lost their Lands.” From it, one might see that depriving commoners of their ancient rights to use common areas, through land enclosures, has its counterpart in modern times, when citizens are deprived of their ancient liberties, through “Vaccine Enclosure”; we might also speak of “Mask Enclosures”.
Since early 2020, much of the world has experienced ‘Covid-restrictions’, usually in the form of so-called mask mandates. Without the superfluous mask on one’s face, one was forbidden to enter grocery stores, pharmacies, schools, the workplace, houses of worship, et cetera. Many American, Canadian, and European officials have revelled in their ability to impose “lockdowns”, which violate civil liberties on so vast a scale, that such measures would once have been considered Stalinist. State and local governments even forbade people from gathering in churches, or their homes, for holidays. And now the Australian capital of Sydney is in a new ‘lockdown’, over the death of one elderly man – a lock down which is being enforced by the Australian Army. The national army is thus transformed into the National Police.
Governments persuaded their citizens to take the so-called vaccines, with assurances that masks would no longer be necessary. Then came the talk of new Covid strains and that promise went by the wayside. And now comes talk of Vaccine Passports – not just for foreign travel, but for permission to enter nearby restaurants, and according to YouTuber Red Pill Germany, just to walk into a grocery store and purchase the necessities of life.
Like the super-states of Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia in George Orwell’s “1984”, national governments, social media, and news outlets around the world have censored “badthink” references to Covid-19, masks, vaccines, and lockdowns; YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are among the most powerful offenders. It seems their desired goal is a global peasant population that is prohibited from exercising freedom of speech, freedom to travel, and freedom to choose the paths, both sundry and grand, to walk in one’s, unless a government official first gives his or her approval; they themselves may come and go as they please, do as they please, and speak as they please. Just like Old Times. Just like the master on the plantation, or the lord of the manor. And it doesn’t matter if the slave is black, or the serf is white: in their eyes, all working people are negroes, who may be traded, or worked to death.
