While the western media quickly jumped from the COVID crisis to the Ukraine crisis, in the background of current events there is a lot of activity amid western government that does not look very democratic.
The word ‘autocracy‘, with all its variants, has been used a lot frequently by western government politicians as they attack the ideology of Russia, China and essentially every national leader who does not join their “rules-based order” club. There is so much linguistic repetition from the same western leadership, it’s impossible not to see this autocracy narrative as some form of talking point that stemmed from some G7 or NATO collaboration meeting.
It does not seem coincidental the new catch phrases of “autocracy” vs “rules-based order” surfaced at the tail end of the COVID crisis, when Build Back Better shifted from a talking point into an actual set of western legislative constructs perhaps intended to codify the emergency powers those same officials deployed.
What kind of democracy, or rules-based order mindset, was the European Commission carrying when they decried the overwhelming national election in Hungary? Surely if the EU wanted to celebrate democracy, they would cheer for the high voter turnout that reelected Prime Minister Viktor Orban, yet they did exactly the opposite. Apparently, some democracies are more valued than others.
At the same time the EU is clutching pearls over the results in Hungary, another western ally, Canada, is codifying the government’s emergency act power to seize property without due process. As we are directed to be distracted by everything Zelenskyy, it might be worth noting that Ontario Bill 100 is about to permanently change the rules of permitted political protest. You can read about Bill 100 here and watch the economic debate here.
Essentially, Bill 100 gives the Canadian government the power to seize your home, finances, bank accounts and assets if you take part in any form of protest that would create economic harm to any loosely defined entity. Protest at the border, lose your house; at least that’s the threat they are about to make into a law.
It seems rather incredulous to me that securing a corporate financial interest would override the concerning possibility of forever losing liberty and freedom for the individual citizen. However, in this new post-COVID ‘rules-based order’, that’s the official justification from the Canadian government. Slippery slope and all that accepted, this Ontario Bill 100 is a few slides beyond the slippery.
Similar actions are taking place in New Zealand and Australia, where codifying the emergency powers of public health officials post-COVID rules, is at the forefront of their legislative and constitutional reform efforts.
Creating new era ‘rules-based democracy’ stuff is filling up the business end of western government attention in Europe, North American and the land down under.
But it’s not just Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia doing this. In the United States we have a combination of new restrictions on liberty and freedom around emergency health issues in combination with J6 “threat to democracy” outcomes being created. The J6 committee is looking at Trump supporters the way the EU commission is looking at Hungarian citizens.
Add it all up, and this new version of western democracy doesn’t look like it is based on the same principles the older version, the non-rules-based version, was using.
These new “rules of democracy” are also being overlaid by new rules for discussing democracy as found in the guidelines from the tech overlords.
Google just recently announced, in the era post-COVID, they will no longer tolerate content that “makes claims that are demonstrably false and could significantly undermine participation or trust in an electoral or democratic process.”
So, if you are to speak against the new “rules of democracy”, or the legislation that is going through the “democratic process” in the EU, NZ, AU, Canada or the United States, you can be targeted by the online Google wrong-think police. Isn’t that convenient considering the effort to codify the totalitarian tendencies of the new “western democracies.”
If you speak against the newer version of the ‘rules-based order‘, the leaders of western democracies will enjoy protection from the internet police. A rebellious sort, as defined by a person who still thinks independently, might say that sounds almost autocratic or something.
There was always a concern that any political leader who granted themselves extreme powers, under the pretense of the pandemic threat, would never want to relinquish that scale of control over their citizens. Indeed, it can be argued we are seeing those concerns come to fruition with supportive action from ruling elites in the various parliamentary and congressional offices.
I used to joke about Turkey’s Erdogan and his view of democracy.
He believes in the “one man, one vote, one time,” rule as soon as he is installed as president (or prime minister.)
Looks like more of the West is taking that autocratic view.
It’s like they all slipped in China’s “social credit score,” secretly.
One more straw, and one more coming problem to deny.

It’s an intentional attack on the world order, meant to kill Billions and to let your masters assume control.
Good luck. You and yours will certainly be “denied.”
Time to build back American. We can do it. We can also share those methods with the Chinese and help to decentralize production, currency, and power.
The opposite of what this unelected and unsupported “Great Reset” would want.
Think it can get here in time for the November election?
That’s the plan.
Leftist favorite Trudeau is a big fan-boy of the CCP system of totalitarian control. Looks like he is implementing his dream system. Democrats here prefer to do it in drips and drabs, one mask and vaccine at a time. Here, if you don’t take “Nothing to see here” as an answer, you can be imprisoned, without bail (you gotta rob or rape somebody to get released without bail) in solitary confinement. Punishment depends on the ideological slant of your Facebook posts.
You mean I can’t post that masks are effective, the vaccines work against the variants and idiot Biden got 80 million votes on Google anymore? Dang.
Good Americans are working in silence…preparing for the hell of the Great Reset and all that comes with it.
Blockchain is a threat to the powers that be, and it can be used to promote global peace and direct democracy.
We don’t need reps, and we could elevate our democratic process, Constitutionally and legally, to make voting based on an incorruptible code so people only vote once.
