SPEECH (Suggested structure)

1.  Law and Order
2.  Alternative argument
3.  Suppression of undesirable elements
4.  Identification of undesirable elements – race, ideology, age, all dissenters
5.  Proposal that all normal people want situation as is therefore law and order pressure.
6.  Statement supporting patriotism/nationalism/class/freedom of individual argument – the reason for the imposition of law and order.

Speech to be given at the beginning of the 4th course.

This speech should complete the authoritarian aspect of the event. After is has been given the inmates should be a little withdrawn, although aspects of the speech could be referred to. Essentially the withdrawal should be of the more physical active elements which took place in the 3rd course, and which will be developed in the fifth and final course.

The speech should obviously have its own form.
It should however be ambiguous in the following ways:

1.  It should begin quietly, sensibly and authoritatively as though a slightly right of centre Conservative MP were giving it.

2.  It should put forward the case for Law and Order as a prerequisite for the continuation of society as we know it.

3. Then it should show a knowledgeable but essentially superficial awareness of the alternative argument which put in my terms is the necessity to question the institutional behaviour, i.e. the ay institutions repel pressures for change/evolution on the basis of the proven worth of their procedures, rather than on the basis of principles upon which they were built.

4. Fairly gradually these two arguments should be taken beyond the threshold of common sense, beyond the accepted criteria of logically expressed arguments into the kind of fantasy which Enoch Powell approaches, and which one imagines Hitler, Mussolini, Mosley and others expressed. But consistently throughout it should be made clear that the speaker is supporting the argument firstly there must be Law and Order regardless of any other considerations. That in order to do this unacceptable elements must be put down. (The suggestion that they be institutionalized is good.) That all responsible people believe in the continuation of society as it is. And that all this is done in order to protect the freedom of the individual from anarchy, chaos, totalitarianism etc.
