George Orwell is rolling in his grave as the world becomes more dystopian. Nineteen Eighty-Four was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual for tyranny.
Orwell warned us 72 years ago of 4 possible nightmares that indeed have become today's reality:
1. Big Brother is always watching you: Thanks to the popularity of smartphones and smart devices, the authorities keep constant tabs on EVERYONE all the time. In Orwell's 1984, there's a telescreen in every home that's constantly watching and listening. You can't switch it off even if you want to. Today, Orwell's prophecized telescreens are designed to be handheld to go with you anywhere you go, and they're so desirable and convenient that you have no desire to switch them off. We call these telescreens smartphones. You can't switch them off even if you want to because they're designed in a way that you can't remove the battery. The "turn off" option offered by these devices is just a placebo. They're always on. They're always watching you. They're forever listening. Thanks to Google and Apple, Big Brother is forever watching you. Big tech companies like Google and Apple are government agencies because the same people who control/own these companies also control/own governments. And these people, of course, are no other than the banking class like the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, and the Morgans.
2. Perpetual war: The American Empire is just 244 years old, but it has been at war for 223 years. It has been at war more than 93% of the time! And American military spending is the size of the next 10 largest military budgets around the world combined! 9/11's War of Terror ("War on Terror" in doublespeak is designed to be a forever war just like COVID19's medical tyranny, which will last forever.
3. Bread and Circuses: Today's social trends are endless. From Hollywood's violent and gory movies to reality TV shows to the infinite obsession with sports and cooking shows, the list never ends. Add to the mix the cheap addictive junk food, and you get a breed of "proles" that are so pathetically gullible that they aren't even worthy of surveillance.
4. Newspeak: In his novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell laid out in detail how language can be misused to deceive and control the masses. In our world today, political correctness and euphemism are pervasive. Orwellian doublespeak and thought-control are ubiquitous among the politicians and the powerful propaganda machinery of the American Empire. Eugenics and population control are now called "reproductive health" and "family planning." The department of war is now called the department of defense. Torture is now called "enhanced interrogation techniques." The war effort is now called the peace effort. Invading foreign nations and bombing their populations is now called "liberation and spreading democracy." Dead innocent civilians are now called collateral. And the invaders who drop bombs on sovereign nations are now called freedom fighters or heroes while those who resist them are now called terrorists. Now governments start wars and call it self-defense. Political bribery is now called lobbying, and it's perfectly legal. Kidnap is now called "arrest" and it's legal as long as a cop does it. Theft is now called seizure as long as cops do it and it's perfectly normal. And now thanks to the planned crisis that's COVID19, house arrest is now called "lockdown."
