George Orwell is in the news, 67 years after his death in 1950; his masterpiece, 1984, has reached #1 in Amazon’s most sold books.
In the midst of Trump’s presidency, the backdrop of ongoing wars, a militaristic progression towards global tyranny, and an ever increasing acceptance of the global surveillance system; 1984, written in 1948 while Orwell was suffering from tuberculosis, stands as a testament to his prophecy for the future of our species.
Allowing for the book, after all, being a parody, something like 1984 could actually happen. This is the direction the world is going in at the present time.
I read 1984 early in my life, in truth it formed my early teens. I became obsessed with the idea of a New World Order, an elite controlling the masses for the thrill of the power it brings. A surveillance state designed to enslave us to a state run equally by governmental and corporate controllers. Ongoing unjustified wars designed to siphon our human potential into death, instead of into creation.
It’s funny now, looking back at a story written in 1948, how accurately portrayed our world has become. It’s easy to forget the book was meant to serve as a warning, not as a prophecy. For fiction is always a better vehicle for truth than history could ever be. We will easily forget the lessons learned from a Hitler, a King John, or a Nero; but few of us forget Big Brother.
In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement.
What words better sum up the current climate of social media?
Fear of what President Trump means for America. Rage at the oppressive forces of racism / patriarchy / Illuminati. Triumph in the victory of a presidency / sports event / television show. Self-abasement by the cuck culture of the reigning beta male dominated feministic cis gendered self-apologizing white male.
The sex instinct will be eradicated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the Party.
How can you willfully encourage the destruction of the sex instinct? Why would you even attempt to?
Because to control our strongest animalistic instinct, is to control the direction of its force. To tilt the axis of desire from sex, to loyalty to an ideology, the ideology of fear.
Promote the human virus theory; destroy the nuclear family ideal; institute feminism: the hatred of and division from men; institute a homosexual popularization campaign; make it culturally unacceptable to have kids before 30; diminish the value of sex through apps on smartphones. Wrap all of the positives in the ideas of acceptance and open-mindedness, all the while covering the true agenda in the shadow of good will. An agenda designed to eradicate the sex instinct.
There will be no loyalty without family, only loyalty to the ideology of fear.
But always there will be the intoxication of power.
We all long to drink deep from the well of power we feel everyone but us has.
Our sense of powerlessness drives our hatred for whatever we perceive to hold power over us. And from our hate we begin to mistake our anger for power, only amplified by those around us screaming in unison.
The screams intoxicate us. The anger fuels us. And we simply become another whisper yelling at the feet of misguided fears.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever.
Forever seems impossible.
The ever present theory of the human pendulum of freedom presents itself. The idea that throughout history, the top of the pyramid control structure used the middle to control the bottom caused a constant shift in power dynamics is one presented in 1984.
But 1984 also explains one thing humanity has not seen before: technology.
Survelience controls, it watches intently for obedience, it punishes remorselessly, and it forever will wield the truth of video as its cloak of defense for the atrocities it commits.
Big Brother is Watching
The moral to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: don’t let it happen. It depends on you.
Orwell, a man beaten, by disease, by society, by his knowledge and imagination, turns to the camera. A certain sense of death covers his face. A certain sense of hope emboldens his eyes.
“Don’t let it happen.”
As though WE would ALLOW THIS to happen?!
Arrogance and apathy will be our downfall.
Action and humility will be our uprising.
