I am not a number…

… I am a free man!

That statement is from the opening sequence of the famous 1960’s TV series, The Prisoner, one of the strangest and most off-beat shows in a strange and off-beat decade.

The assertion is shouted back at “Number Two” – the controller of the island where the Prisoner, a former government spy, is being held captive while TPTB try to figure out why he quit his job – and is a response to being labeled “Number Six”.

Of course the response to this is Number Two’s uproarious sneering laughter, something that feels entirely appropriate from our ruling classes over the last two years, a period of time when we have decidedly not been free men.

I don’t think such people are laughing anymore – and you should not laugh at fascists, especially when they turn up in the nation that created the ideology.

I wonder if she’ll be locking people in their homes, arresting them for going to the beach or park, directing the government to select which businesses will be open and which will close, shutting down much of society using the Police and “The Law”, and bringing in legal mandates that force people to do things against their will and conscience.

Because that really would be fascist.

“Why is the family an enemy? Why is the family so frightening? There is a single answer to all these questions because it defines us because it is our identity, because everything that defines us is now an enemy.

For those who would like us to no longer have an identity and to simply be perfect consumer slaves and so they attack national identity. They attack religious identity. The attack gender identity. they attack family identity.

I can’t define myself as an Italian, Christian, woman, mother. No. I must be Citizen X, gender X, parent one, parent two. I must be a number.

Because when I am only a number, when I no longer have an identity or roots, then I will be the perfect slave at the mercy of financial speculators, the perfect consumer. that’s the reason why that’s why we inspire so much fear.

That’s why this event inspires so much fear because we do not want to be numbers. We will defend the value of the human being. Every single human being because each of us has a unique genetic code that is unrepeatable. And like it or not, that it’s sacred.

We will defend it, we will defend God, country and family, those things that disgust people so much. we will do it to defend our freedom. Because we will never be slave or simple consumers at the mercy of financial speculators. That is our mission.

That is why I came here today. Chesterton wrote more than a century ago:

Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two make four.
Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in summer.

That time has arrived. We are ready. Thank you.

  1. Absolutely agree. One quibble in NZ. Courts found the mandates were illegal. They violated Bill Of Rights.
