1984 fiction becomes fact: Ten

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

1.) Continuous War

2.) Widespread Surveillance

3.) Propaganda-Style Fake News

4.) Acceptance of Politically Correct Orthodoxies via Newspeak

5.) Dumbing Down and Doublethink

6.) Censorship

7.) Two Minutes of Hate against Political Scapegoats and Strawmen

8.) Harassment and Arrest of Dissidents

9.)  #MeToo Sexual Purges

10.) Historical Revisionism

 

The “memory hole” in 1984 was a chute connected to an incinerator and served as the mechanism by which the Ministry of Truth would abolish historical archives as if they never existed.

 

Had the establishment’s candidate, Hillary Clinton, won the U.S. Presidency in 2016, would any of the Orwellian revelations behind SPYGATE ever have seen the light of day?  Of course not.  Just like in 1984, the “Memory Hole” would have been utilized to make The Party appear infallible.

As mentioned before, in the novel, 1984, the members of the Outer Party were denied sex, other than for procreation.  This was how sexual repression was channeled into enthusiasm for the State. In the eponymously named film (which was actually released in the year 1984), the actors John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton played Winston Smith and Julia, respectively, engaging in a secret love affair as a form of political rebellion.

Recently, President Trump pardoned conservative filmmaker, Dinesh D’Souza, which caused those in the Inner Party to speak out against such heresy.   D’Souza was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to eight months of confinement by Obama’s Department of Justice (DoJ) for campaign finance violations that normally would have been settled with probation and community service.

The filmmaker was also subjected to what he said was re-education by way of a court-ordered psychologist and targeted as a conservative in his DoJ file. His real crimes, of course, consisted of writing a book and making a documentary that were both critical of then President Barack Obama.

In all likelihood, the Obama Administration’s spying on its political opposition will one day be known as the largest political scandal in the history of the United States.  The Russian Election Hacking Lie, however, which was initiated in an attempt to concurrently conceal the misdeeds of the guilty government coconspirators and derail the incoming administration, will go down in history as one of America’s greatest frauds.

6.) Censorship

In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 Presidential Election, alternative-news websites were labeled fake news as the mainstream media propagated actual fake news regarding Russian collusion and election hacking.  But that was just the beginning.  Within a week after the general election, two of the world’s largest internet companies, Google and Facebook, announced their plans for outright censorship.

In Orwell’s 1984, books were outlawed and news was fabricated to align with the agenda of the INGSOC Party.  The Party decided what was true and what was false on behalf of the people.

Over the past four decades, and as a result of global academia’s embrace of the Frankfort School and Fabian Socialism, the U.S. Department of Education has dumbed down a majority of Americans while vastly increasing their taxpayer-funded budgets over that time. Moreover, whereas emphasis was once placed on critical thinking, logic, classic literature, science, and math, today’s schools have instead prioritized the social sciences while cultivating into young minds attitudes of conformity and political correctness. Now universities around the world offer majors such as global studiesgender studies, and women studies, in order to prepare young people for career government jobs, positions in progressive non-profits, or to move back into their old bedrooms at Mom and Dad’s house.

For anyone born even as late as the mid-twentieth-century, it would have been difficult imagining a time when a U.S. President would advocate for cross-dressing males to share the bathrooms of our daughters in schools.  But that’s what the Obama Administration pulled off and it was the weaponization of words that allowed it to happen. Quote:

The Obama administration issued guidance Friday directing public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms matching their gender identity.

A joint letter from the Departments of Education and Justice went to schools Friday with guidelines to ensure that ‘transgender students enjoy a supportive and nondiscriminatory school environment,’ the Obama administration said…

…..This guidance gives administrators, teachers and parents the tools they need to protect transgender students from peer harassment and to identify and address unjust school policies. End of quote.

Identity politics and implementation of social justice policies have stifled the rights of free speech and freedom of association throughout the democratic nations of the western world. They materialized as the result of language manipulation.  Remember when gender used to represent male or female?  Yet in the above example, the word “identity” was added after “gender” thus opening a verifiable Pandora’s Box of Orwellian Newspeak.

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.

Ten ways the democratic northern hemisphere nations became the Orwellian West.

In part one we looked at Continuous War.

Part Two: Widespread Surveillance

Although statutes prohibiting telegraph wiretapping date back as far as 1862, and the first person convicted was a stock broker named D.C. Williams in 1864, it wasn’t until Watergate before public concerns over government spying became widespread. In the wake of 911, however, as well as the passing of the Patriot Act, and the revelations of former government contractor, Edward Snowden, the concerns of Americans reached entirely new levels; especially regarding violations to the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Snowden previously worked for Dell Computers and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) before his employment with Booz Allen Hamilton, a National Security Agency (NSA) contractor.  Hailed by some as a hero and whistle blower, and others as a traitor, Snowden released to the press hundreds of thousands of files related to the American NSA as well as other intelligence agencies from Australia and Britain.

The revelations were stunning.

Ten ways the democratic northern hemisphere nations became the Orwellian west.

In his book, “1984”, George Orwell envisioned a future crushed by the iron grip of a collectivist oligarchy. The narrative told of the INGSOC Party which maintained power through a system of surveillance and brutality designed to monitor and control every aspect of society.  From the time of the book’s release in 1949, any ensuing vision of a dark dystopia depicting variations of jackboots stomping on human faces, forever, has been referenced as being “Orwellian”.  This is because Orwell’s narrative illustrated various disturbing and unjust conceptualizations of controlcrime, and punishment.

For example, “Newspeak” represented the language of mind control, whereas “crimethink”“thoughtcrime”, and “crimeface” manifested as transgressions against the state.  Guilty citizens were captured by the “Thought Police”, and the ultimate punishment consisted of “vaporization”; which eliminated every last vestige of a person’s existence.

In the horrifying world of 1984, the nation of Oceania was divided into three concentric groups:  The Inner Party, the Outer Party, and the Proles, or proletariat.  The Proles constituted 85% of the population and lived in extreme privation.  The Inner Party represented the elite powerbrokers who led lives of comprehensive luxury compared to the minions in the Outer Party.

But in the real world of today, it is the globalist billionaires who own multiple mansions, fly private jets and ride in eight-cylinder limousines to climate-change conferences where policies are decreed to lower the carbon footprint of the proletariat.  It is the wealthy elite of the westernized nations who have sacrificed individual freedom upon the altar of Collectivism as political correctness has stifled free speech and enslaved citizens drown under oceans of debt.
