I Always Thought the Tagline to Bill Clinton’s First Presidential Campaign by James Carville . . . “It’s The Economy Stupid” was Cheesy. But in Retrospect, Carville was one of the Past Few Generations’ Best Propagandists . . . Carville Hit It Out Of The Park – “Indeed It Was The Economy Stupid”.
Now . . . It’s The Real Fear Of Socialism Stupid – And the Life & Death Struggle to Defeat the Big Lie(s). It’s also a Life & Death Struggle Against Academically Induced Ignorance.
George Orwell Said (Wrote) It Best In His Epic Dystopian Novel 1984 – (Published In 1949) . . . Where he Used Phrases Promoted by the Tyranny of the Novel’s Government of the Day, which Disseminated DOUBLE (NEW) SPEAK . . .
“Who Controls The Past Controls The Future . . . Who Controls The Present Controls the Past”.
Where Orwell’s Protagonist – Winston Smith, who Works for the Ministry of Truth, which Spearheads the Thought Police, And Controls The National Surveillance Of All Aspects Of The People, Defies the Odds to Live a Free Life.
“War Is Peace – Freedom Is Slavery – Ignorance Is Strength”.
Orwell Warned In His Book – 1984 . . . Against The Future Tyranny Of Nazis & Communists (Not By Name). Both of Whom he Greatly Feared in what Orwell Saw as a Future Totalitarian World of Personal Restrictions, Ignorance & Uncontained (Uncontainable) Surveillance.
George Orwell . . . 4-Years After The End Of WWII & 71-Years Ago From Today – Worried Mightily About A Society Where People Thought They Were Free – But Were Too Controlled By The State To Know They Weren’t Free.
Orwell was Terrified of Government Imposed ANTI Freedom of Thought, ANTI Freedom of Speech (Expression), ANTI Freedom of Assembly & Mind Control by Education, the Phony Recreation of History, the Eradication of Real History, State Intrusion by Way of Mass Surveillance, all Leading to State Intimidation . . . All Of Which Would Destroy Democracy.
George Orwell Was Right To Be Afraid. In My Last Podcast . . . Broadcasted January 10, 2020 . . . Stand With Freedom Of Expression (Stand With Free Speech Or Fall With Silence), where I Tell the Story of a Situation where I was Threatened with Arrest for Disobeying a Police Directive, which I Continued to Disobey.
I Had A Simple Choice . . . Obey the Directive of The Police & Surrender my Rights (Freedom). Or Disobey the Directive of the Police & Pay a Consequence from Behind Bars to Defend my Rights. I Chose Freedom.
After the Assassination of Soleimani . . . The Islamist Butcher Of Iran – By The Directive Of President Donald J Trump, Hundreds of Pro-Islamists & Trump-Haters Took to the Streets in Major Canadian Cities to Praise the Iranian Despoiler of Life & Liberty, while Demagoguing the President of the United States of America.
A Journalist From (Canadian) Rebel Media . . . was ORDERED by the Toronto Police to Step Away from the Pro-Terror Demonstrators, that he was NOT Permitted to Interview the Protestors, and if the Rebel Journalist used the Descriptor TERRORIST in his Report or Questioning of any People at the Event, THE JOURNALIST WOULD BE ARRESTED FOR PROVOKING THE CROWD.
The Rebel Journalist Did Mostly The Best He Could Under The Circumstances . . . But he More or Less Complied, even though he Bitterly Complained to the Police, and Asked them on Camera if this was Toronto or Tehran? And if this was Sharia Law or Canadian Law?
In The Aforementioned Podcast . . . I Related to a Story Where I too was Threatened by Several Police Officers to Obey an Order I knew was Contrary to my Rights & Freedoms, or if I decided Not to Obey, I would Face the Seizure of my Motorcycle & Personal Arrest. My Response to the Police was Succinct. Do Whatever You Think You Have To Do . . . But I Am Not Going To Comply.
I Didn’t & They Backed-Off.
Funny Adjunct to this Story . . . As the Police Captain was Telling me That I was Going to Jail if I Didn’t Comply, my Cellphone Rang and it was Anne (Wife) who was at the Hairdresser – who Called just to say Hello and to see What was Happening.
My Response . . . Everything’s Good. It’s Hot Outside & I’m Just About To Get Arrested. Anne’s Response – Are You Okay? My Response – Nothing To Worry About. Anne’s Response – Let Me Know If You’ll Need Anything. Anne then went back to Doing whatever Women do at the Hairdresser. The Cop Was Incredulous At This Cell-Phone Conversation Between Anne & Myself.
I Really Didn’t Want To Get Arrested . . . But I Far More Didn’t Want To Surender My Freedoms. And in Response to the Rebel Media Reporter who Backed Away & Complied with an Unjust Police Demand – He Should Have Done The Same.
Our Freedoms Are So Fragile . . . That Surrendering even an Inch of our Rights, is an Open Invitation – To Surrendering All Of Our Rights.
Think About This . . . More than 70-Years Ago, George Orwell Warned us about Surveillance Cameras Everywhere, Intruding on our Most Private Moments, even though Surveillance Cameras in Orwell’s Day, Didn’t Really Exist.
Orwell Warned Us About Group Think. He Warned Us about Double Speak, where According to the State . . . Up is Down & Down is Up. Orwell’s Protagonist Railed at the Thought Police’s Propaganda that Stated Peace Is War & War Is Peace.
George Orwell Wrote About Revisionist History. And History Taught By The State That Never Existed.
THINK ABOUT IT . . . President Trump is being Charged for Committing NON-CRIMES. President Trump was Spied Upon by the State, for which the State Chocked-It Up to Sloppy Police Work & Perhaps the Over-Exuberance of One or Two Bad Apples.
Universities Teach “Safe-Places” where Honest Debate is Forbidden. The History of the South is Being Eradicated before our Eyes. To this Generation – the Holocaust Never Happened. And to the Ignorant Amongst us, The Killing of a Mass Murderer (Soleimani) was a Crime, while the Man (President Trump) who Took-Out the Mass Murderer is a War Criminal.
There Are Camera’s Everywhere. Our Cellphones, Computers, Cars & Smart Televisions are Listening & Recording Devices where Every Word we Utter is Stored in Perpetuity for the Purpose of Big Brother.
The NSA (National Surveillance Agency) Listens to and Records Every Telephone Conversation we Make. And our Credit Cards & Debit Cards Track Every Purchase we Make . . . Where we’ve Been, what we Buy, How much we Spend, what kind of Food we Eat, what kind of Medications we Use . . . And On & On – Ad Infinitum.
Even our Auto Insurance Companies, like All-State & Progressive, Put Computer Devices in our Cars, with the Advertised Premise that these Computers will make us Better & Safer Drivers, where in all Reality, these Computers Tell the Insurers Where we Drive, If we Obey the Speed Limits, How Much we Drive, How Fast we Brake – Etc.
