Sure, permaincompetence is not word (as if permacrisis is) and has not entered the flow of general usage; however, it should because it aptly describes the ubiquitous ineptitude saturating the System, more specifically, virtually all governments, organizations, institutions, and corporations.
I suspect Harper Collins chose named permacrisis as its 2022 Word of the Year to help broadcast the Establishment’s continuing and overarching goal of using cascading crises as pretexts for locking the world in a nightmarish Ahrimanic totalitarian surveillance state.
Many conspiracy-inclined bloggers have compared these permacrisis modes of operation to the Hegelian Dialectic of thesis – antithesis – synthesis or, more plainly, problem – reaction – solution.
The process is simple enough. Create a problem or crisis, incite the masses to react in a predetermined fashion, and then offer a solution to that quells the instigated reaction and solves the manufactured problem. Every Establishment "permacrisis" solution aims to further consolidate the System’s power by increasing bureaucratic despotism and eroding freedom.
The master plan appeared to come together via the birdemic in 2020-2021. The Ahramanic totalitarians succeeded in locking the world down for nearly two years. During that time, they proclaimed that the world would never again be as open as it had been.
They did their utmost to convince people that measures, such as global digital IDs, peck passports, restricted travel, curfews, intermittent lockdowns, and so forth, would become permanent fixtures of the post-birdemic world. They even successfully implemented such measures in some places, yet they couldn’t make it permanent.
They had the world seemingly at their mercy. The totalitarian prison they had been dreaming about for decades was on the cusp of becoming an indissoluble reality, but in the end, it slipped through their fingers.
The explanations for this failure to “close the totalitarian deal” are numerous. Many factors undoubtedly played a part, but I believe good old incompetence was principal among them. Yes, incompetence. Granted, it required a high level of competence and coordination to pull the birdemic off, but the incompetence bled through the moment the Establishment seized control.
For the sake of brevity, I won’t wade into endless details. Instead, I will simply note that the permacrisis world the Establishment seeks to implement requires permacompetence.
Global totalitarianism entails consistent and committed proficiency, capability, and expertise – the Establishment appears to have a severe shortage of these indispensable qualities.
What they appear to have an abundance of is permaincompetence. On the one hand, I guess you could consider this a blessing of sorts because it is practically guaranteed that none of their totalitarian dreams will ever come to full fruition. On the other hand, permaincompetence is extremely capable of one thing – destruction.
The Ahramanics only win if they are permacompetent.
Permaincompetence is the realm of Sorath and the potential for an authentic, genuine permacrisis.
