It’s in the rhetoric and in the colours

Allow me to think out loud as I go along here. Sheila Struthers commented on the last education post:

Scotland is leading the way in many respects – our Curriculum for Excellence is but one component of the “singe view of the citizen” that is fast becoming the norm in the brave new world of joint “services” – life-long learning, cradle to grave monitoring.

OK, one of those links is to Subrosa whom we know to be a right-thinking person – she’s a friend – and Sheila’s opening is fine too – I’m just showing how this mind of mine works.  You can tell the globalists by a number of things –  they hide behind a plethora of words and the types of phrases they use give them away – International Child of the Future, that sort of thing.

Their websites are slick and often have the pale blues and yellows in them, with circular logos and links everywhere which don’t allow you to pin down who the person is.  The puerile Olympic logo is a case in point – viewing us as infants, they present infantilized images.

Sheila mentioned that Scotland is being used as a guinea pig and it may well be.  On this news item she links to, at first I thought she was advocating that until I read it more carefully.

The first shock, you see, was that I saw a name leap out of the page – Demos.

Then back to the first line again:

Civil servants have long been the guardians of ideas on how to run the country. Now MSPs are looking beyond them for policy solutions.

Oh no, oh dear, they’re not up north of the border spreading their poison as well are they?  So many posts at my place on them, how they arose from the Tavistock, how they metamorphosed into Common Purpose.  OK, let’s take some names and go exploring.

Graham Leicester.  Look innocuous up front, can’t get a line on the man until you note the colour scheme and the slickness, the familiar way with words – always so friendly, with a friendly smile.  I admit I don’t know him from Adam but we press on.

Power and Love – a theory and practice of social change

Oh dear. Then Carnegie and “building vibrant, resilient communities across the UK …”, “Changing minds, changing lives”. Yep, that’s them all right – that’s the rhetoric in one.

Click a link and we get: International Futures Forum, replete with the pale blues and yellows and a little word at the top left: “World Game”.  Scroll down the names – “Forward Scotland” – pure CP, just like Yorkshire Forward.  EU stuff.

Back to Sheila’s referenced article, which is obviously and expose of these people … let’s go to the Institute of Public Policy Research – Wiki:

The IPPR (Institute for Public Policy Research) is the leading progressive thinktank in the UK. It produces research and policy ideas committed to upholding 

Exploring more widely and we get Ideas for a Better World and then looking at W&M International.  You do know what they’re famous for, don’t you?  Cue to Julia Middleton’s “little jerk comment” and where was that?  Scottish Arts Council, wasn’t it?

I’ve seen enough.  The Scots are being shafted good and proper, these people are crawling inside, around and over any policy making body with a mainline into the decisionmakers.

Scottish independence, eh?

    This is very scary indeed, James.

    Thank you for another excellent post and for all your research.

    Thank you so much for reading James.

    Years ago I started to research what the future held in store for Scottish home educators and discovered a reference to a single record for all children – years before this blogpost :

    http://www.home-education.biz/blog/civil-liberties/id-cards-for-babies-the-rest-will-follow

    and it grew and grew…

    Had my suspicions that Scots were being used as lab rats a while back but there seems little doubt now.

    Had a huge break through last year when Kenneth Roy, old-style investigative journalist with his own on-line publication – the Scottish Review, picked up on the surveillance agenda.

    On the back of this exposure, I started the Big Brother Scotland thread:

    http://www.home-education.biz/forum/general-discussion/12948-big-brother-scotland.html

    The information is all “out there” but presenting it in a way that people will actually read is not easy, especially when mention of the now screamingly obvious global agenda still switches some people off instantly. Not a fine line I have to tread over here…

    Subrosa has very kindly hosted three guest posts which I hope build on the (much more eloquently written) Scottish Review coverage:

    http://subrosa-blonde.blogspot.com/2011/10/tales-from-small-country-yes-first.html (you’ve seen that one)

    http://subrosa-blonde.blogspot.com/2010/11/tales-from-small-country.html

    http://subrosa-blonde.blogspot.com/2010/12/early-intervention-and-universal.html

    I disagree that the 2001 articles are an expose – too boastful – but back then I would have thought it all sounded wonderful too…

    There are such a web of interconnections that it is difficult to know where to start. Demos turns up a lot. IFF is just the latest re-incarnation of a long line of “Scottish” think tanks.

    And yes, Scotland is positively riddled with Common Purpose.

    One example which relates to what I think is the “biggie” they were and probably still are intending to “sell” from Scotland, eCare (in whatever guise – google “single view of the citizen”).

    Anyway Pinsent-Masons are the law firm which have been involved with the development of eCare since at least 2005:

      The information is all “out there” but presenting it in a way that people will actually read is not easy, especially when mention of the now screamingly obvious global agenda still switches some people off instantly.

      You’ve hit the nail on the head. This is what we’re all finding and why OoL was set up. We knew there’d be a diversity of opinion so people could take as they found and I think we’ve respected one another in this. Obviously we attack the ideas someone puts if we think they’re rubbish.

      Where’s OoL on the global stage? One of a thousand OoL type sites but even when we’re all linking to each other [and there really is a syndrome which refuses to link because it wishes to be the saviour], we’re still only the internet.

      Some bloggers have made the cross to the MSM – Guido, Michelle Malkin but I bet if they were to say the things we all say, they’d hardly have a following.

      Even if the big players did get behind it [as the Express got behind getting out of the EU], it still only takes us so far. We get into the people who don’t wish to listen anyway because their politics welcomes Big Brother spreading “fairness” and “tolerance” through global PC oneness.

      Incredibly tough nut to crack.

      • February 19, 2012 at 10:15 pm

        Exactly, James. Even Michelle Malkin has to play ‘within the lines’. She can’t go too far afield. Guido will also play within the goalposts, leaving it up to his commenters to fill in the blanks. After all, they’ve lined themselves up to appear on MSM as our voice, so they can’t be too controversial.

        Nothing wrong in that — horses for courses — but OoL (rightly) is outside the boundaries.

    On rhetoric…

    Firstly, a well written piece by Kenneth Roy:

    In Scotland’s new world of electronic child surveillance, debased language conceals what is going on

    http://www.scottishreview.net/KRoy30.shtml

    Secondly, a much older article from Defence Management Journal which to me is quite chilling in its clarity of purpose:

    Streamlined government – a reality for Scotland

    http://www.defencemanagement.com/article.asp?id=342&content_name=Overview&article=10785

    The muddled Getting it right for every child policy documents described by Kenneth are a distorted echo of the same language used in the Defence management article.

    This new system of governance, which is being advertised to the rest of the world, cannot function without the massive amounts of personal and household data generated by Getting it right for every child (Every Child Matters in England) and other initiatives.
