covid19 - behold the rise of the average joe, behind the curtain big brother.

To be shackled within one’s own living space, under complete house arrest lockdown, on mass, is a concept not familiar to a free man. However the notion of getting sick with covid19 or worse, inflicting this scourge on others, is why I’m counting my steps around my own yard. My wings clipped, my choices now limited, whilst I appreciate the far off distant stars and worlds in my imagination. These imposed restrictions are understandably for the protection of mankind’s future survival. And I for one - want to be part of that solution, I’m definitely not looking to flout the rule of law.

However this lockdown experience does create a thought process which I have never really considered before. Even after reading Orwell or any number of future big brother controlled worlds. i still never thought total domination by others was ever possible within my spectrum of the world.  For me it’s always been about our own choices. Now I don’t have a choice, now I’m starting to have to think outside of what I’m previously used to.  

Regimes that have sought to capture man and control his every thought and movement are definitely out there. however when one is considered free,  the concept of a regime or anyone really wanting to control and spy and watch ones every move within a glass bottle, is really an alien notion. A free person, rather thinks all people would want to rather live their own exciting free lives. Pushing forward on their own, without putting control mechanisms in motion, to fully restrain the freedom of the creative freemen. 

Now freedom is relative - we are all still governed by moral and scientific laws, which in the most part are non-negotiable. And mostly these laws are respected by honorable humanity because they make complete sense. However there are some who flout these iportant rules and hopefully they will pay the price for their behaviour. So there is a semblance of control within the choices we make. 
What I’m talking about is regime controllers or individual controllers that start to put cameras everywhere, who consider it important to monitor all chatter and then to bring out big sticks to control those who step over the regimes clearly demarcated lines.

What I’ve now noticed within these times of increased justifiable control, is suddenly people step up whom you have never really noticed before.  To now assume full control of the lives of the many. I’m fully for making sure i don’t give this sickness to anyone, or i don’t receive it from anyone. I’m fully for pacing around my own yard whilst the world settles down to its new norm of passive aggressive control by others. However what is going to take some getting used to, is those people that take away my choices without understanding the facts behind my decisions. Not that it’s anyone’s business, but suddenly it’s become everyone’s business. I’m talking about the anonymous note brigade, behind the curtain average Joe citizen big brother.

So you might perhaps live in a complex of houses - when you step off your property,  there is now suddenly any number of behind the curtain camera judges who are quick to post your movements, even just to your car, on a group chat. everyone jumps to their phones in horror as you are judged and termed "prowling around the neighborhood, inflicting germs on the elderly and the vulnerable innocent." the community of behind the curtain judges rush to their note pads to now leave very early morning notes on doors and cars,  before fading back into the night. (I really hope they wore masks, gloves and sanitised the note left on the car - which would then align with their attempts to control others without being hypocritical) 

A controlling regime doesn’t appear out of nowhere, I now realise it takes time to layer its way into our periphery vision. What im now realising is it is comprised of behind the scenes minders and controllers,  using the might of the average Joe citizen, reporting on their fellow citizens. These self elected keepers of virtue suddenly assume control of the all and the free. Our all valuable decisions and choices are now given to others and we get used to others drawing lines in the sand that we cannot step over. we become citizenised beyond whats acceptable for a free mind.

This is all happening over and above Police enforcement. where some police enforcment is now taken out of all logical control by a few over zealous police minders. 
The new future world order norm is, one better get used to being watched. Maybe we were always watched , all the time, already - we only noticing now because average Joe citizen , behind the curtain watcher is emboldened with face mask to step out and to now anonymously slap our hands when we overstep their imposed lines. whats next , hours in the hold for walking on the beach, A hanging at dawn for being 5 minutes late after exercise curfew, a bullet in the face for not wearing a face mask. It appears There are those who will try control your life because it suddenly gives complete meaning to theirs. 

So These are very interesting times and my future self might look back, whilst I’m washing my hands, trying to avoid the now very much needed for my own safety, 3D camera in the corner of my own bathroom. Whilst I await the notification that I’m a good model citizen.(extra points if i report on my neighbors) I will be classed a good citizen for washing my hands for the hundredth time even in isolation. 

So Whilst I appease the anonymous behind the curtain camera note delivery big brother Joes of the world. I might just smile because even whilst I’m washing my hands and the skin is very raw to the bone. My freeman  mind is actually skydiving with no face mask, over the city, enjoying the uncontrolled free fall, Where i know, no big brother average Joe citizen is able to ever take away my creative imagination.  so all one can say to the inevitable future is , bring it on - clip my walkabout freedom - however the freeman who lives comfortably in his own thoughts, can never have his creative imagination clipped. 

But its important to realise, that if there was a way for others to view and control your inner imaginative thoughts,  you can bet your bottom dollar - average Joe, behind the curtain camera big brother and his sinister behind the scenes minders, will definetly use it, to invade and control your creative imaginative headspace. to slap your hand and purify your thoughts with shock therapy at 2:30am, all for the protection of mankind’s future survival.,  you have been warned.
