1984 fiction becomes fact: Three

Continuing the series: Ten ways the democratic northern hemisphere nations became the Orwellian West.

1.) Continuous War

2.) Widespread Surveillance

3.) Propaganda-Style Fake News

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving 2016, I wrote a sardonic “Thank You” piece in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidential election victory.  The article was, in turn, picked up by a website called “Zero Hedge”.  Imagine my surprise, on Thanksgiving Day, when I read in The Washington Post, that Zero Hedge was guilty of spreading disinformation by the Russians, according to some obscure, and likely CIA subsidized, entity named “Prop or Not”.

Just as the “Ministry of Truth”, in 1984, served as the propaganda machine for Big Brother and the INGSOC regime, so do the handful of corporations, comprising 90% of the mainstream media today,  who serve as the propaganda machine for the globalists.

Although the main purpose of Orwell’s Ministry of Truth was to rewrite history in order to realign it with Party doctrine and make the Party look infallible, it also promoted war hysteria designed to manufacture consensus; and unite the citizens of Oceania against whatever, or whomever, the Party deemed culpable. quote:

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.End of quote.

So, too, do the Masters and Messengers of the new millennium march in lockstep toward a predetermined future.  By way of the Hegelian Dialectic they progress.  First, they create a problem; then they sow seeds of discord before finally demanding solutions designed to augment and centralize their political power.

Today’s modern manifestation of the INGSOC party, led here by loyal U.S. Democrats, have sought to control private lives, consolidate power, and restrict personal freedoms by weaponizing healthcare, welfare, FISA Courts, illegal immigration, anti-gun initiatives, and even turn Vladimir Putin into a modern day incarnation of Orwell’s imaginary and infamous scapegoat, Emmanuel Goldstein.

Certainly, the Collectivists would have had much more difficulty fundamentally transforming America and rest of the world, except for the never ending propagandic spin spewed forth by the mainstream media as the modern day Ministry of Truth.   Using Orwellian terms like Election HackingBlack Lives MatterNo Justice No PeaceHands Up Don’t Shoot#MeToo#OneLess, and No More Guns, the Messengers ceaselessly promulgate their divisive bullshit around the world twice while the truth ties its shoes and gets slandered as fake news.

In one of the century’s greatest ironies, liberals and the press have labeled Trump as Hitler and his supporters as Nazis while employing the exact techniques used by Hitler’s henchman, Joseph Goebbels, the Reich Minister of Propaganda: Quote:

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
