Dear Boris Johnson,
I write to you in your capacity to be Boris; regardless of any current formal responsibilities.
The Cult Of The Strongman

The Cult Of The Strongman
Patrick Wintour reports the following in Boris Johnson: democracy is in retreat across the world, The Guardian, 2 December 2016.
… Britain’s foreign secretary … Boris Johnson will issue a warning that democracy is in retreat across the world and that a “cult of the strongman” is taking hold, raising the prospect that the concept of a global liberal order will fade into irrelevance. ...That the “cult of the strongman” is openly worshipped today is not so strange when the citizens are put on a daily diet to worship the strongman in a usually hidden manner.
For example, the so called Science of Psychology offers the comforting explanation; Why you don’t want a nice boss, Sydney Finkelstein, BBC, 25 August 2016.
The simple fact is that schools, universities and the massmedia train the people to restrict their capacity to think and understand; in order to force the people to believe that they can only accept how it is and to obey.
In short. The Academic tradition, that has a total monopoly of so called Education and Science, is a brainwashing operation with the objective to produce a zombie population forced to worship the strongman.
That we, in the West, are immersed in a hidden totalitarianism, falsely called Democracy is not an especially unique perspective.
One of the few contemporary intellectuals Umberto Eco (1932–2016) says, in his probably last novel Number Zero (2015), that the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (1883–1945) survived and continue to rule as a hidden dictator.
Eco was open about the meaning of this metaphor. The following conversation is in Umberto Eco on Berlusconi, bestiality and Beyoncé, Gaby Wood, The Telegraph, 30 November 2015.
… Still, you don’t need Mussolini to be alive to feel his influence on politics. Though the conspiracy is implausible, the point, surely, stands? ...
Eco’s idea about Mussolini’s survival is an elaborate way of saying the spirit of fascism lives on. “Yes, OK,” says Eco. “Good reading. A+.” … “... There you have the curse of Italy: one half fascist and one half suicidal.” ...That the Italians has fallen into the trap of hidden totalitarianism is not only a valid metaphor for the Italians as Italy is a nation within the current Western confusion.
And of course, you, like most other citizens suspect the almost hidden tyranny.
For example, according to Boris Johnson interview: We can be the 'heroes of Europe' by voting to Leave, Tim Ross, The Telegraph, 14 May 2016.
… He claims Winston Churchill would be joining him on the Brexit bus; he warns that the EU shares the same flawed ambition to unite Europe that Hitler pursued, … The truth is that the history of the last couple of thousand years has been broadly repeated attempts by various people or institutions – in a Freudian way – to rediscover the lost childhood of Europe, this golden age of peace and prosperity under the Romans, by trying to unify it. Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically,” he says. …And.
“This is a chance for the British people to be the heroes of Europe and to act as a voice of moderation and common sense, and to stop something getting in my view out of control,”
“It is time for someone – it’s almost always the British in European history – to say, 'we think a different approach is called for’.”
The Missing Piece That Changes
And Explains the Whole Game
The only relation you, so far, leave out – the missing piece that changes and explains the whole game – is the simple and undeniable fact that our current Western culture is a construction made, by the military dictatorship of the Roman empire, to hide the rules of Dictatorship by making the people to believe that the only real or concrete is to accept how it is and to obey.
This stupidity, to restrict the people to accept how it is and to obey, is formally called Platonism and is promoted by the Academic tradition that today is guaranteed a total monopoly of Education and Science.
The whole point with Brexit is to get rid of stupid rules.
So, when you realise that the source of the Static stupidity is the usually hidden ideal of the strongman or Platonism, you can only come to the conclusion; you need to kick out the Academic tradition that is an extension of the military dictatorship of the Roman empire.
In short. The “cult of the strongman” is what we are trained to worship in schools and universities.
And we are for sure reminded daily by the massmedia to stay in inside the usually hidden Static rules that denies us to be real citizens; according to the real roots of our Western civilisation formulated by the Athenians.
Or like this. The Athenian ideal of Understanding is Right is today eliminated by Hidden Might is Right.
Propaganda Replace Real Understanding
It must be underlined that the current and usually hidden ideal of Platonism include to rule the people by propaganda; as any form of real or concrete understanding is eliminated.
The French Academic sociologist Jacques Ellul (1912–1994) formulate this ideal at the end of the Preface to his book Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes (1962), full text, Ellul says.
... When man will be fully adapted to this technological society, when he will end by obeying with enthusiasm, convinced of the excellence of what he is forced to do, the constraint of the organization will no longer be felt by him; the truth is, it will no longer be a constraint, and the police will have nothing to do. The civic and technological good will and the enthusiasm for the right social myths — both created by propaganda — will finally have solved the problem of man.Not even the most dystopian descriptions like Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) by George Orwell (1903–1950) nor the neo-noir science fiction film Blade Runner (1982) is close to how the Academic cult writes about their ideal society.
In Platonism Must Art Be Mystical
In Platonism must Art be mystical as the real origins of Art is about what we are able to think and do.
So, today is the mystical Art given to the people as decoration, amusement and a secure and a meaningless protest against the tyranny.
Consequently, is a film like Blade Runner only mystical art and can not have any relation to how it actually is.
Earlier in our history the economy was based on command and control; as it was possible to produce and sell simple products that demanded many obedient people in agriculture and in factories.
Today there is no need of the absolute obedience and simple products. Accordingly, the whole economy shrinks in a world where the most Dynamic and less restricted are victorious.
At the same time are the Static ideals, made to hide Dictatorship and to worship the strongman, promoted by the schools and universities, the massmedia and the political élite.
The result is of course the total confusion of today where the people are forced into the dead end, to openly worship the strongman; as they are not aware of any other alternative.
In brief. Today there is a growing hate between them that promote the hidden worship of the strongman and them that want to worship the strongman openly.
In a desperate attempt to fend of the people and the growing hatred; the Academic cult that promotes the usually hidden culture of the strongman, awarded Bob Dylan the Nobel prize in literature this year.
And the reply was that they had to listen to a catalogue of their crimes when Patti Smith performed Dylan's song A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall (1962) at the Nobel Prize ceremony.
Heard ten thousand whisperin’ and nobody listenin’
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin’
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall
...Lyrics, A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall on Dylan's site.
Yes, a hard rain’s a-gonna fall on the Academic cult. They will hopefully cease to exist very soon.
That the cult of Roman Platonists was forced to give one of their most prestigious awards to Dylan is the perfect beginning of the end of their total terror.
Don't hesitate. The Platonists will not disappear from their cushy positions by themselves. So, kick out the Romans for good!
To more precise dissolve all the relations between the promoters of the cult of the strongman, the cult of Platonism or the Academic tradition and set up a new organisation that promote real Education and real Science.
And then you will open up to sustainable growth in a nation of artists, real scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs.
In my book This Is How The State Fucks Your Mind are more concrete relations as well as undeniable historic facts.
Some of the chapters I have added recently are:
