What can we learn from the Brexit blockers?

The vote to leave the European Union was more than three years ago, yet we still have not left and are no closer to leaving. This is because the implementation has been resisted every inch of the way by the UK Establishment - by whatever means seemed to be effective.

Over the past fifty or so years, the people's of the developed nations have been encaged by a Leftist totalitarian bureaucracy that now extends through all powerful or wealthy corporations, organisations, institutions and workplaces. We now find ourselves in an insane virtual world of omni-surveillance and micro-control that has inverted natural virtue.

Yet this was hardly resisted at all - I know because I was one of very few who did try to resist it in medicine, science and the universities. Every latest new tyranny was accepted with either a shrug and a moan, or eagerly as presenting career opportunities.

Yet, if each of the incremental stages towards totalitarian tyranny had been resisted; again and again, at every level, by the mass of those whom it would afflict - none of it could have happened.

Why was it not resisted? Why is no top-down evil ever seriously resisted (except as a ruse to introduce something worse)? Because the mass of people lack sufficient motivation.

Why do they lack motivation to defend even themselves - their power, autonomy, wealth, health, comfort, peace, prospects? Because they lack religion.

Men need religion - I mean a real religion. All Men in the past had a religion; most non-Westerners still do. Subtract religion - subtract the spirit world, the soul, the afterlife, spontaneous morality etc - and one is left with the psychotic, foolish puppets that are the mass of modern, Western Men.

Men cannot function without religion. Without religion, Men do not even choose to reproduce at the minimum replacement level - without religion Men choose extinction.

So what of the motivation of the Brexit saboteurs? They are - mostly - exactly the same kind of mass people that have been - over two generations - too feeble and frightened to raise a finger to resist their own incremental enslavement.

The Brexit blockers are doing exactly the same as everybody else. They are behaving psychotically - according to delusions and in response to here and now inducements (sticks and carrots, threats and bribes). 

Above them are Them: the 'hidden hand' of the Global Establishment - which is a department of the demons, with the agenda of evil - and who find the totalitarian EU a useful tool in their plan of subversion, inversion and control.

I am not saying anything so foolish as that we should 'learn from' the Brexit-traitors, blockers and saboteurs who (ultimately) serve Satan... I am saying that nothing will be done about Brexit, nothing will happen towards a better world, unless or until the British (specifically the English) again become religious.

At present the British are literally hope-less - since the mass majority are hedonistic cowards. They can't even act to defend themselves and the lives in the most basic and obvious ways - naturally they will fail to compel the Establishment to leave the EU.

Courage comes from belief; and a society of materialistic unbelievers is a weak, foolish, distraction-seeking, despicable society; and will be treated accordingly.

The situation is now, here, today... pretty-much as stark as situations get. Each person is faced by a choice, and compelled to make that choice - any attempted evasion of responsibility is to choose totalitarian evil.

I would love to be surprised; but after decades of ingrained cowardice due to unthinking, hedonistic atheism, I am Not optimistic.

Sorry I'm late with this from Solzhenitsyn:

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood that they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked? The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

If… If… We didn’t love freedom enough."

Let me add that OF COURSE things in the West today are nowhere NEAR as bad as all that and blah blah and so on etc.

@AG - In the UK, and for several decades, the penalties for refusing to collaborate with the totalitarian-bureaucratic machine were trivial or non-existent; yet it was resisted by a mere handful. Now, the penalties are escalating rapidly, and there is the excuse that they are too severe to be risked.

Freedom is never a sufficient reason for the mass of people - religion, however, is; and the Russians did indeed risk and suffer greatly for their religion.

As Solzhenitsyn himself documented in detail. The duration and magnitude of Christian persecution in the USSR was greater than the Jewish persecution by the German National Socialists - but the fact is suppressed/ ignored in the West. Why? Because it was Christians being killed and tormented, and the Western elites hate Christianity more than anything; and because it was an attack by the political elites on the mass of people in their own country, which Western elites approve and implement as standard policy:
