George Orwell’s 1984, Was it Fiction?
Or A Playbook for the Creation of Our Current World?
I love a Caitlin Johnstone rant! I really do. She is a self proclaimed rogue journalist, who speaks truth to power, in a way, very few, if any, rogue or not, journalist can or do. Where does she come from? Is she even real? Or is she some sophisticated AI bot, tasked with determining who is awake? And if so what happens to those identified? Do they get put on the “Back to sleep” list?
The International Scene Looks Too Much Like 1984’s Dystopia
Caitlin Johnstone’s Imperialist Run the Same Tired Old Script Day After Motherfucking Day describes Orwell’s dystopia:
You don’t realize you’re being fed the same exact bullshit every motherfucking day. The billionaire news media always march right along with it, because they’ve all got systems in place to boost narratives which maintain the status quo that those billionaires have built their kingdoms upon. The reporters who work for such mass media outlets have no loyalty to truth or facts, only to facilitating the expansion of the empire.
The last bit about the reporters? Really odd. This was exactly (and I mean exactly!) the task 1984 “journalists.” Similarities between 1984 and our current reality hardly ended there.
In 1984 there were endless wars between nations. The hidden powers that be (whom no one in the general population actually knew or could even identify) mysteriously changed up (on seeming whims) which nation was at war with which, on a fairly consistent basis.
No one asked any questions. In fact no one thought much about this at all. This is because no one was allowed to even think.
Every citizen was tasked with following a very bizarre set of directives (blasted at them daily via an authoritarian figure on a two-way television that could not be turned off) based on the consistent hatred of an unknown, unseen and ever changing enemy.
Sound familiar? Are we not being constantly reminded about some unknown, unseen and ever changing enemies? Is Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, maybe a newer, slicker, sort of Big Brother? BLM protesters, Antifa, the Homeland Security Gestapo, and since we are gearing up for an election, all the Democrats, all the Republicans, all the leftists on Twitter, and the alt-righters on 4-chan and 8-can and reddit, and just anyone associated with any of the above in anyway.
We are all an enemy to someone. We are all being demonized and hated for what we think and feel, on some news, some where you best believe.
The Playbook for Dystopia Creation
This is very 1984. And when you really start to consider it, it is downright odd our current reality mirrors 1984:
Endless wars — check
Mandatory Hate rallies —almost check
Constant surveillance —almost check
An entirely oppressed and brainwashed population — almost check
State produced, entirely ficticious journalism — — not quite. Instead we have corporatized journalism, and it’s brainwashing the population into various elite-backed agendas — almost check.
In 1984 the power structure, (and it was never made entirely clear who or what that was) was constantly rewriting history by removing all evidence and references to one historical event and replacing them with evidence and references to another. This made it impossible for anyone to know the truth about anything. While this hasn’t quite happened quite yet, the Mandela Effect actually does tamper with highly politicized historical events.
The Mandela Effect is known for its tampering with the death of Nelson Mandela. It has also done strange things with the JFK assassination and the location of the statue of liberty. When did the first terrorist attack occur on American soil? September 11, 2001? Nope. In the early 1900s, America was attacked by Germany apparently. Did you know that? I didn’t. Isn’t this odd if you didn’t know? Shouldn’t this have been something you did know? The Mandela Effect, seems harmless until you realize, that for some, it actually changed history.
It makes me wonder if 1984 actually some kind of playbook on how to create a dystopia, as opposed to the fiction we all thought it was?
Talking Like a Toddler — Not Thinking At All
How close are we to 1984? Freakishly close! Someone even pointed out that Donald Trump’s vocabulary and style is bizarrely similar to New Speak. New Speak was the language that the brainwashed and dumb-downed masses were allowed to speak in 1984. It was an extremely limited version of English. things were “double ungood!” The word “bad” was forbidden.
In 1984, only the elite were allowed to use real language, because only the elite were allowed to think. Here in America, thinking is not encouraged, but obedience and consumerism is. In certain parts of China, and certainly North Korea, thinking is over. How long do you think people like you or me will be allowed to think — much less express these thoughts verbally or in writing?
Current predictions for the western world is that by 2025, it’s a wrap. No more free thought, only vaccines with nanotechnology and Elon Musk and Google sponsored neural links.
I guess we’d better start learning telepathy! (And how to deprogram a neural link!)
