    Default George Orwell's 1984 had nothing over 2018

    I was surprised to hear that George wrote 1984 as a parody...




    Imagine if George Orwell was alive today to see how close his book came to real?

    Well we all knew it was happening. Our forefathers fought and bled for our freedoms today which we give away so easily to the Patriot ACT, FISA abuse, NSA, ETC...

    Surprise? That makes perfect sense. There is reliable evidence that Eric Blair, a/k/a George Orwell, was one of "them." He was writing for his and "their" amusement. But also, often times, what is written is not amusement or prophecy in any way. Rather, it is general or specific specifications, blueprints, instructions, game plans and programs. To be understood at future dates by the adept and to then be carried out by them. And so on, generation after generation .....

    Interesting that Orwell (apparently) wrote it in 1948 & that was going to be the original title - changed to 1984... "apparently" (published in 1949)

    Ironically, the National Security Council was founded, along with CIA and MJ-12 the previous year - and of course, Roswell "happened". (1947). (50% of CIA is composed of ex-Nazi SS Intelligence personnel under Paperclip), and Operation Highjump initiated by US Navy.

    1948 is the same year that the value of television as a mass control medium is fully realised.

    "Coincidences"?...

    The tyranny of today, as opposed to Orwell’s description, is little more subtle. Though, that may amount to being more pernicious than his overt idea of tyranny.
    The psychological tyranny of brainwashing and conditioning makes it so they don’t, as of yet, need to put us in camps, since we're in camps of the mind already.

    Yep. Don't need prisons, walls and guards per se, when we've allowed ourselves to be imprisoned in our minds. As such we fail to take appropriate action, thinking we are free, when we are imprisoned by virtually imperceptible shackles. But the shackles can be seen if one looks and is aware.

    From 1984...

    “If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable - what then?”

    “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”

    “It was curious to think that the sky was the same for everybody, in Eurasia or Eastasia as well as here. And the people under the sky were also very much the same--everywhere, all over the world, hundreds or thousands of millions of people just like this, people ignorant of one another's existence, held apart by walls of hatred and lies, and yet almost exactly the same--people who had never learned to think but were storing up in their hearts and bellies and muscles the power that would one day overturn the world.”

    “If you can feel that staying human is worth while, even when it can't have any result whatever, you've beaten them.”
    Never give up on your silly, silly dreams.

    You mustn't be afraid to dream a little BIGGER, darling.
