15 Minute Cities

There’s a lot of excitement (or should I say anger) in the air at the moment due to growing concerns regarding 15 minute cities.

My personal interpretation of such a city, which would appear, has been decided upon without the opinion or vote from the public, is that everything you’ll ever need will be within 15 minutes of your home.

I guess this means, food, entertainment, recreation, fuel, work, business, friends, family, holidays, oh… wait a moment, my family live over a hundred miles away, does that mean I’ll never see them because the future will consist of gated and guarded cities where facial recognition and ANPR cameras loom over us 24/7, where leaving will incur a financial penalty? Will Drones be circling the skies above like vultures?

Does this mean if I want to see my granny, or any of my family, or distant friends, then I must choose between feeding myself or accepting a fine? What if I work outside the city and I need to make 300 trips to work each year beyond the checkpoints, 200 more than we’ll apparently be allocated? Will it cost me £20,000 to go to work? Maybe, maybe not, maybe we’ll be issued with a special permit, but these are questions being asked, yet no answers are being provided!

What if my family member is poorly and I need to attend to them, or go to their funeral, will I be fined because I’ve reached my annually allocated travel allowance for venturing outside the Kingdom? At what point, if any, are we given compassionate consideration for loss of life?

Seemingly, there are many unanswered questions and much confusion, but that hasn’t stopped the local councils implementing such draconian measures against our will, or wishes. In places such as Bath and Oxford, road restrictions are already in place and its causing a lot of anger as well as a serious risk to health and safety.

Only last week, a fire engine was unable to access a home due to wooden planters blocking access, so already we have a health and safety issue here, with a potential risk of loss of life, or our property. Was this an oversight, or was it deliberate?

Evidently, measures are already being put in place to restrict movement of citizens within many chosen so called “pilot” cities but my thoughts are drawn to the simple question of “why”?.

What good can come of these pilot schemes, that include blocking off traffic in certain areas using wooden planters, ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), facial recognition cameras and a plethora of confusing signs and symbols that would appear to be informing us that they’re restricting our rights of access for no lawful reason. I fail to recall anyone giving this a positive vote.

Forgive me, I’m no traffic or highways consultant, neither am I lawyer but my understanding of these pilot schemes is that they’re simply unlawful. Obstructing traffic and preventing access of free moment unnecessarily, where no census, (that I’m aware of), has been conducted for safety reasons, and the restriction of access has no benefit to the residents or any citizens visiting the area, surely goes against our human rights does it not? If you know the answer please comment below.

Are these draconian measures simply a breach of our freedom to roam the land we should have unfettered access to, after all, nobody has a right to restrict movement within your own country, surely?

I recall a time when I was riding my motorbike through Tunisia in 2019, I was stopped at almost every Checkpoint and had my “papers” scrutinised by a very bored military soldier. I was never once refused from continuing and the purpose of these checkpoints was simply to try and reduce the risk of a potential terror attack, or to overcome illegal transportation of goods. My point is, the checkpoints were in place to protect the people of the land and tourists, they were not in place to hinder them, or restrict them from exploring, travelling or going about their legitimate business.

I’ll take a moment to remind folks that we are paying for these draconian measures, we pay for the people who decide upon these nonesensical ideologies, people who sit in air conditioned boxes all day, who often are so detached from the so called real world that their eyeballs pop out if they experience anything dramatic in their daily routine other than dropping a soggy rich tea biscuit in their cuppa, and yet, we appear to be standing still with our hands in our pockets watching, and waiting for it to happen in our area. Okay, that’s unfair, there are people desperate to get a movement, a protest going, sadly in the UK, this means walking around a park for a few hours, or sitting around a table dunking rich tea biscuits!

It may be the dystopian communist society that globalists and corrupt politicians seek in order to gain further financial rewards for themselves and their families but its not a world in which the majority of us want to live in and accept. We should be seeking to achieve better things, like sustainable living, self-sufficiency and independence. How is being corralled into city pens going to make improvements to climate change, or pollution, it can only increase and concentrate the issue.

I heard recently a number of companies have decided to refuse to deliver goods to these restricted areas, claiming that permit costs or daily rates to access these areas is not financially viable for them. Some companies say they cannot pass on the nefarious cost penalty of accessing the area to their customers.

In such cases, how can this be a “smart city”, my interpretation of the word smart, is clever, bright, intelligent, the results we’ve seen so far is far from intelligent and they haven’t even begun the impending rollout for all cities. I ask you, what is “Smart” about restricting access to emergency vehicles?

Does SMART stand for, Surveillance Monitoring Analyis Reporting Technology? If it does why do local councils need this information, to what end or what good will it do? Such information is only useful if you wish to gain totalitarian control over citizens, much like how the Chinese authorities do. Similar measures were put in place for the citizens of communist countries, it starts with something small and grows, eventually you are at their mercy and noncompliance will result in restricted access to certain products, entertainment or enjoyment, or severe penalties for offenders.

What appears to be coming next is going to be digital currencies, social credit Scoring, UBI (Universal Basic Income) and loss of jobs. Small businesses will close and access to food or products will only become available from major corporations, many of whom are already fully fledged members of the WEF. Take our least favourite globalist, Bill Gates, who seems to own more farm land than anyone else, who is patenting seeds, who recently bought a large share in a global beer manufacturing company and who also would like to block out the sun!?!?

It’s fairly obvious then to most, that eventually members of WEF, the overlords, will hold all the keys. As such, access to food, money, lifestyle and enjoyment will be governed by them, an unelected one world government who will treat you as an asset, not a freeman, or woman of your own land.

I have heard the word “asset” mentioned previously, and I know that if an asset is no longer providing a valuable and worthwhile servcie, then it is no longer needed, as it serves no benefit. So, what happens to the assets that are no longer needed because they provide no benefits to the enclosed kingdom?? And why are we being referred to as assets?

I think now is a good time to buy land, learn to be sustainable and self-sufficient and if you can’t buy land in a remote area, perhaps think about permaculture as a way of supplementing your bug burgers or GM modified, or bioengineered tomatoes and potatoes that contain very few, if any nutrients as their growth is promoted by chemicals to meet demand.

I know I’d rather be growing my own veg than risk eating something that’s been laced with chemicals or vaccines. I’m sorry to upset the vegans here, but I’d prefer to eat a real chicken that’s roamed my land and provided me with eggs, manure, helped me control my pest issues and provided comfort from its feathers, than I would eaten a meat lookalike made in a laboratory.

We face some very disconcerting times ahead, however, we do have choices, it boils down to whether we choose to accept, or refuse. So it’s not necessarily all bad, but you need to take action. This isn’t a solution that will land on your lap, or one that you’ll trip over in the street, it needs effort, not a lot, but even a little will make a big difference.

Start by converting your gardens into a food oasis. You may thank me in months to come!

    People are waking up to this control grid future and resisting, it just needs more and more ordinary ‘credible’ people to highlight what its all about and what it actually means. A lot of us are tarred as tinfoil hatters since the Covid debacle so get really encouraged hearing a diverse range off voices. This is a great article!
