The title to this essay has two meanings. The first is the one many people think of when they hear the word – i.e., an outfit that people in a certain profession wear. Soldiers, for instance. The uniform identifies them as soldiers.
But is also something else. Or rather, it is the opposite of that something else.
Uniform is – by definition – the same as everything else. One soldier looks like another and that is purposeful as individuality is not wanted in soldiery. What is wanted is one – a single unit, many acting in concert toward the same end – and the individuals who comprise it reflexively not questioning the destination of the unit.
That model is in the process of being applied to all of us – by those who seek a country (a world) in which there is . . . uniformity.
By definition this means the systematic elimination of everything that isn’t. The reason why this is desirable ought to be obvious, from the point-of-view of those who are trying to make everything – including us – all the same. It is much easier to control one thing than a bunch of things. Put more bluntly, it is easier to get your (or rather, their) hands around a single throat – so to speak – than it is to choke out a crowd of individual throats all at once.
This explains – or ought to – the push (just the right word) for electric cars – and electric everything, including stoves and home heating systems. It has no more to do with the “emissions” of carbon dioxide – a background trace gas that constitutes about 0.04 percent of the air in circulation, our “contribution” to this total being a fraction of that fraction – than failing to stand six feet apart had to do with people catching the late respiratory bug we were hectored hysterically would kill us all if we didn’t.
It is the culmination of Bogeyman Fever and the most fatal – to what was, once, a country defined by lack of uniformity as embodied by the saying one almost never hears anyone say anymore and for good reason:
It’s a free country.
By which was meant people were not in the military – so to speak – unless they had signed up. Everyone else was free to decide on a less-uniform course. From the car they drove to the shoes they wore. It was a contrast to the dreary uniformity of practically everywhere else.
The effort is now well-under-way to do just that.
It is in the process of taking away everything from people that made them not uniform. One sees this creep-toward-sameness in the repetition of the same chain-store strip malls in practically every town, a process accelerated by the late “lockdowns” (a prison term the unconvicted have been habituated to accept without raised eyebrows, even) that only locked-down the small, non-corporate retailers.
And in this push for what is chirpily styled “electrification,” by which is meant uniformity not only of vehicles and appliances but of power sources, which will be winnowed down to just one. That one controlled by the few who desire this uniformity because it makes it so much easier to enforce it. Electric cars and appliances only work when they have power and that power is far more amenable to fine-tuning control because it is already largely under the control of a tightly controlled, centralized distribution apparat.
The EV they are pushing on you can hold a charge. But it is difficult to recharge it absent the power they control. The same as regards the electric stove and heat pump, controlled by them rather than you, via the “smart” meter the Uniformists – to coin a neologism – already control.
Soon, they will make a push to control your money as well, by making it digital and centrally controlled.
By which they mean to control you, in order to make things . . . uniform.
The largely successful characterizing of a background trace gas that doesn’t constitute even half of one percent of the air in circulation as an “emission” was a masterstroke of etymological jujitsu. Once this unchecked premise was accepted, the rest followed. Just the same as acceptance of the necessity of “mask” wearing implied and so foreordained the necessity of needling – which followed as inevitably as the tide coming back in.
Electric cars – and appliances – became a one-size-fits-all inevitability the moment it was accepted that fractions of a fraction of a percent of carbon dioxide – the portion “emitted” by us – had to be eliminated because these “emissions” constituted not merely a danger but a hysterically insisted-upon existential threat.
Which they do – as regards uniformity.
This was not what people have been told, of course. They are told – as soldiers in the military are told – that being all the same is a virtue as well as a necessity, something that must be submitted to for the good of the whole and toward an essential common purpose.
Their commanders are, of course, privy to what that essential common purpose is – and will reveal it in due time.
