Deurbanization or the recovery of self and freedom

The article below is written almost three years ago, but it seems to me that it is still relevant today. I selected it for my forthcoming book “The Fall from Liberalism to Technocracy. Notes from a dissident under the New World Order”.

Today I won't tackle head-on the incendiary subject that has been devastating the whole world since March this year. Those of you who have had to understand, have already figured out what is at stake in this special operation on a global scale, draped in medical pretexts. And those who have failed to accept the whole story about the so-called pandemic, I fear, may never wake up from their lethargy. I will continue to refer to the root causes, which have determined the effectiveness of the manipulation and takeover of entire peoples on a planetary scale. It is the uprooting, the rupture from the natural environment, the deruralization of the world in favor of industrialism, productivism, concentration and massification of the dispossessed and proletarianized in the new urban agglomerations. The entire economic history of the previous centuries, associated with the modern era, has not only meant the liquidation of traditional rural civilization, but also the suppression of food independence, as well as the faith and the entire axiological system of that world.

It should be noted in passing how the communist regimes, like the liberal ones in the West, succeeded in inoculating a generalized contempt for the condition of the peasant and, at the same time, an unconditional admiration for everything that has to do with the city with all its prerogative of supposedly superior civilization. The flight from the villages to the city has spread across the globe. Thus arose the phenomenon of self-hatred, of the denial of one's own social, cultural and religious identity, of the obsession with leaving the rural past in favor of an urban future. The collective mind on all continents is deeply marked by the perception of the village as inferior, backward, archaic and therefore detestable in relation to the city. “The ‘religion of progress’ and the fascination of the city seduce us irretrievably with the illusion of climbing a higher social ladder that provides an exaggerated ‘self-esteem’ and an easier life.

And so, step by step, decade by decade, from peoples with our own identity we have turned into depersonalized masses. And once we were herded together in large urban agglomerations, we became a mass of maneuver for the manipulators in the shadows, for the masters of money, for those who are currently preparing us for permanent incarceration in a global concentration camp under a technocratic tyranny.

These thoughts came to my mind while reading a book by the French philosopher Jean-Claude Michéa, “La double pensée. Retour sur la question libérale” (2008), which is a powerful critic of all the excesses of cultural, political and economic liberalism, i.e. the ideological wrapping that drapes the capitalist system. The title is inspired by George Orwell's term doublethink used in his famous novel-antiutopia “1984”.

I have extracted from this volume only a few lines from a note, which I found most appropriate for the critical moment we are living. If we understood the full apocalyptic dimension of today's times and of the terrible trials that await us, we would run as fast as our legs would carry us, without looking back, from these prisons in the open air that are the cities to the villages from which we or our parents once left. So, here is the note from that book:

This century will be the century of total over-urbanization (in the sense of total commodification, total computerization, total uprooting…). Fairs and towns have been relatively viable, humanly, historically, intellectually, as long as they depended on the villages, on the nature that surrounded them. Over-urbanization, however, tends to concentrate populations by detaching them from their previous bases (food, biological, social, historical, cultural, spiritual…) We could also call this generalized land-grabbing […]. You know that I have no magic recipes, much less precise programs, but you will agree that it is imperative that we look for and explore a few avenues […]

To begin with, let us defend everything that has not yet been destroyed, disfigured, poisoned, eradicated… Let us think of a certain reclaiming (which will also be a fantastic adventure) starting from the local level, from its geography, from its history. The future belongs to the villages, and not to the mega-polices, nor to the sleepy villages [i.e. the suburbs to which the city dwellers retire at the end of the working day ― my remark] Reclaiming, whose inevitable corollary passes through de-urbanization, less in order to recover the cities (many of them once beautiful and emancipating) and the villages, but to reoccupy the ruined spaces and ecosystems. (p.188)

This quote is taken by our author from the article of another author named Jean-Pierre Courty.

In conclusion I invite you to consider the following. The state of affairs at global level is a disastrous one. Everything is on the verge of collapsing into a generalized and well-orchestrated chaos. The world is heading for total economic collapse, which will generate mass unemployment, famine and violence from both the forces of state terror and the criminal gangs that always appear in troubled times. A major food crisis is inevitable. And that means famine.

And only the naive still live with yesterday, under the illusion that the current crisis is temporary and reversible and that everything will more or less return to normal. But any profound interpretation, whether theological (that is the most important thing in any circumstances!), geopolitical, political or economic, demolishes such delusions without appeal.

Great suffering and persecution, cataclysms and disasters of all kinds await us. That is why those who want to resist, to fight for themselves and their families, to survive, have no choice but to assume the condition of survivalist. Not for the sake of stupid games or to make a fool of themselves, but because they do not accept the condition of cattle led to the slaughterhouse by the globalist mafia and its accomplices in (anti)national governments.

So, the motto of every sane person should be “Back to the villages!”

True rebels, true non-conformists, true characters will not be trampled and driven to forced vaccinations and coerced chipping.

Now the wheat is being chosen from the chaff.
