    24 years ahead of his time I’d say. 


  2. greenback Says :

    The book 1984 is alot older than 24 years. If you read Plato’s Republic you’ll see how he, or rather his teacher Socrates, was way more ahead of the curve than 24 yeras. In fact if you read the book, you’ll learn all of the forms a government can take, from tyranny to democracy to plutocracy and even a glimpse of Socrates perfect government which is run by philosopher kings who live a very meager life but create wonderful justice and harmony (of course one needs to minus the slaves of Plato’s day).


  3. glowform Says :

    1984 was written in 1948, George Orwells real name was eric blair, he was in the british cia, mi-5.  Here’s a link to a part in his book where he talks about the purpose of war:

    there’s a link to the entire book on line:

  4. Ancient One Says :

    What is forgotten is that Orwell worked at the BBC first and foremost and it was the scope of the BBC that led him to write about brain washing and media as a weapon against the masses used by government.   Quite a lot of people worked with or for the forerunner of MI-5, Alfred Hitchcock is another famous face, even the British born Bob Hope was known to them, the MI-5 of the pre war and post war Britain is not the sinister department it has become now embroiled in manner of dark acts.   5 changed when it was given more lassituide in Northern Irelan, when it started implanting SAS soldiers into the IRA (and end up running the organsiation killing fellow soldiers)

    Indeed Room 101 I believe was supposed to reference a room used by Military Intelligence at BBC Centre.  Not many people know that today if you rise above a supervisory level, you become liable for vetting and scrutiny automatically by MI-5 and it is in the small print of every BBC worker’s contract, indeed if you are a managerial or editorial candidate, on the panel invariably is “someone” from MI-5/6 who will also share your vetting results with the other people there so if you go for a job at the BBC as an editor, make sure there’s no skeletons in the closet ;)

    And please don’t refer to the MI-5 as the “British CIA”, it is more akin if anything to the NSA in remit whereas MI-6 is the foreign branch of British intelligence whereas 5 is domestic only.


  5. Cadavre Says :

    There is an issue with the conclusion - “to keep the entire structure of society intact”. That is not the purpose of those whose anthems are filled with dark age dominion heresies. The people we see and hear are just clerks - they may or may not beleive those chants - it does not matter.

     The purpose of controlled starvation is not to keep the mob intact - it is to keep the structure of the war and commodity nobility (the war bankers)  intact. You will never see a real war banker - they don’t go on TV. We see their servants - Bush (all of em), Cheny, Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Frist, … - in the case of Gore we got a rare sighting of one. Google Al Gore’s daughter’s wedding. Gore, by marriage of his daughter, is now part and parcel of the illuminati!

     We got fed ex and the internet - we can barter business anyplace on the globe through a phone line over night. We don’t need the centralized controls. Only the nobility (and the stupid clerks they hire or allow to marry in) need the centralized control.

     We need to nationalize enrgy and life sustaining commodities. Civil Servants - not corporate contractors - should be doing that. Nationalize defense - war is a ruse to suck us dry.

    I see 99% of the wealth in the pockets of 1% of the people. Why don’t we have a bigger taste? Why do they have it? Everybody could be rich and every culture could reach new thresholds of identidy and humanity. We’d all be rich and watch  space ships fly to mars!

    This hair ball is going to cough up real soon. Anyone in Politics that had cash funneled to them through the groups of PNAC and the Cheney Task Force, will be bending branches like well ripened fruit on the old oak trees outside our home towns.

     It’s going to happen. The hairball will be coughed up very soon - educate yourself - be prepared.

     

     

     


  6. James Ackley Says :

    Distribution of wealth is a socialist idea, and just doesn’t work.  Ask any Communist, or former Communist.  

    Unfortunately, the rich, being what they are, are more adept at doling out their wealth into social programs.  As they have all through the ages.

    You don’t have to like it, but you better get used to it, as others have throughout civilization.  No one can get away from Big Brother, unless they are dead.  There are no sanctuaries.

    THE ENDING OF CHAPTER 13 OF “1984″ BY GEORGE ORWELL –
    UPDATED VERSION FOR THE PRESENT SITUATION IN THE USA

    by D.Rowlands, Jan 2003

    …Moreover, she took it for granted that everyone, or nearly everyone,
    secretly hated the Bush Administration and all its fascist new laws, and would
    break them if it were safe to do so. But she refused to believe that
    widespread, organized opposition would ever exist (beyond a few protests.)

    Such a thing as an independent political movement was outside her imagination;
    and in any case the US Government was invincible. It would always exist and it
    would always be the same. You could only rebel against it by secret
    disobedience.

    …She had only the dimmest idea who Saddam Hussein was and what weapons he was
    supposed to possess. She had grown up since the Iran-Contra scandal and was
    too young to remember the televised court hearings of Oliver North and John
    Poindexter, which took place in 1987 when Iraq was an erstwhile ally of the US.

    …When she happened to in some connexion mention the threat of Saddam having
    some sort of biological weapon, he startled her by suggesting that the US
    Corporations gave him all the weapons he now has, and the threats were bogus.
    The anthrax attacks, just like the WTC attack on 9/11, were planned and
    executed by the US Government itself, just to keep people frightened and to
    provide an excuse for war. This was an idea that had literally never occurred
    to her until he began researching on the Internet for the truth and bringing
    home printouts of what he’d found on an almost daily basis, for her to read.

    …”I thought we’d ALWAYS been against Saddam,” she said vaguely. It frightened
    him a little. He argued with her about it for perhaps a quarter of an hour.
    In the end he succeeded in forcing her memory back to the time when she did
    recall that Saddam wasn’t the US’s enemy until shortly after George Bush Sr.
    was elected President. But the issue still struck her as unimportant.

    “Who cares?” she said impatiently, “it’s always one fucking invasion after
    another, and everybody knows CNN and FoxNews are all lies anyway.”

    He tried to make her understand.

    “Do you realize that the past, starting from yesterday, has been abolished?
    If it survives anywhere, it’s on the Internet, with people like Mike Rivero
    from WhatReallyHappened preserving pages of forgotten news that the media
    pretends were never published. Already most Americans know almost literally
    nothing about the Gulf War in 1991 and the years before that, even if they
    served there in the military themselves! Every record has been falsified or
    destroyed. The history books and magazines have been rewritten, every picture
    repainted, every date altered, every significance downplayed and declared
    irrelevant. And that process is continuing day by day, minute by minute.
    History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the
    neo-conservative warhawks are always right.”

    …In a way, the world-view of the American Empire imposed itself most
    successfully on people incapable of understanding it. They could be made to
    accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully
    grasped the enormity of what was being demanded of them by the
    Zionist-controlled mainstream media, and were not sufficiently interested in
    public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding, they
    remained sane. They simply swallowed everything, and what they swallowed did
    them no harm because it left no residue behind, just as a grain of corn will
    pass undigested through the body of a bird.

    “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH” REVISED VERSION, ADAPTED FROM GEORGE ORWELL’s “1984″
    by
    D. Rowlands, Feb 2003

    He opened the book and began to read:

    By comparison with the one existing today in the United States, all tyrannies
    of the past were half-hearted and inefficient. The ruling groups of those
    previous tyrannies were always infected with liberal ideas and were not
    interested in what their citizens were thinking. Part of the reason for this
    was that in the past, no government had the power of broad surveillance. With
    the invention of tiny wireless digital cameras, new standards on high
    definition television, and interactive media, however, private life came
    largely to an end. Coupled with the concentration of the media via numerous
    corporate mergers permitted by federal deregulation, and the creation of a
    Total Information Awareness program authorized by the PATRIOT Act, citizens
    could be kept for the majority of their daily lives under the eyes of the
    police and inundated with official propaganda with all other channels of
    communication effectively closed (except for a few underground websites such as
    www.whatreallyhappened.com, www.infowars.com, www.serendipity.li, and
    www.cooperativeresearch.org). With the majority of the American population
    unaware of these underground websites, the possibility of enforcing not only
    complete obedience to the will of the State, but complete uniformity of opinion
    on all subjects, heralded by such phrases as “United We Stand,” and “You’re
    either with us, or you’re with the terrorists,” now existed for the first time.

    After World War II, society regrouped as always into High, Middle, and Low. But
    the new High group, unlike all its forerunners, did not act upon instinct but
    knew what was needed to safeguard its position. It had long been realized that
    the only secure basis for oligarchy is collectivism. The ruling group in the
    United States - comprised mainly of bureaucrats, Zionists, arms manufacturers,
    military strategists, publicity experts, oil and energy company executives,
    bankers, lawyers, journalists, and professional politicians - realized they
    could combine this concept with colonial imperialism, knowing that wealth and
    privilege, in particular, access to and control of oil, are more easily
    defended when possessed jointly. The so-called “concessions” - pieces of
    territory which the host country has allowed a corporation to occupy or use in
    a particular way, usually for a sum of money - resulted in situations of
    blackmail where the US would give arms and monetary aid to puppet regimes in
    countries containing significant oil and natural gas deposits, and would
    provoke war and unrest in these countries to secure tighter military control.
    By the 1980s, the interchangeability of Big Oil and US Government personnel had
    become a tradition of American political life, resulting in the concentration
    of property in far fewer hands than before. With control of oil meaning,
    ultimately, control over which nations can fight wars, economic inequality has
    now been made permanent.

    But the problems of maintaining a hierarchical society go deeper than this.
    There are only four ways in which a ruling group can fall from power. Either it
    is conquered from without, or it governs so inefficiently that the masses are
    stirred to revolt, or it allows a strong and discontented Middle class to come
    into being, or it loses its own self-confidence and willingness to govern. A
    ruling class which guards against all of these remains in power permanently.

    With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the first danger had in
    reality disappeared. The United States is now the world’s only military
    superpower and is essentially unconquerable without the consequence of total
    nuclear devastation of the entire world. The second danger, also, is only a
    theoretical one. The masses never revolt of their own accord, and never revolt
    merely because they are oppressed. Cut off from reality by constant propaganda,
    without standards of comparison, many never become aware that they are
    oppressed. As for the problem of overproduction, it is solved by the Bush
    Administration’s covert attack on its own citizens on September 11, 2001, which
    was falsely blamed on Arabs whose countries possess oil or desired land assets.
    The post- 9/11/01 declaration of continuous warfare, called “War on Terror”
    became useful in keying up public morale (and fear) to the necessary pitch.
    Therefore, from the Bush Administration’s point of view, the only real dangers
    are the splitting off of a new group of informed, educated, able,
    liberal-minded activists. The problem, that is to say, is educational. It is a
    problem of continuously molding the consciousness both of the directing group
    and of the larger executive group that lies immediately below it. The
    consciousness of the masses needs only to be influenced in a negative way. This
    demands a constant alteration of the past.

    …The alteration of the past is necessary for two reasons, one of which is
    subsidiary and, so to speak, precautionary. The subsidiary reason is that the
    American bourgeoisie, like the working poor, tolerates present-day conditions
    partly because he has no standards of comparison. He must be cut off from the
    past, just as he must be cut off from the foreign press, because it is
    necessary for him to believe that he is better off than his ancestors and that
    the average level of material comfort is constantly rising. But by far the more
    important reason for the readjustment of the past is the need to safeguard the
    infallibility of the American political system. It is not merely that speeches,
    statistics, polls, and records of every kind must be constantly brought up to
    date in order to show that the predictions of the US Government were in all
    cases right. It is also that no change in doctrine or in political alignment
    can ever be admitted. For to change one’s mind, or even one’s policy, is a
    confession of weakness. If for example, the Taliban regime in Afghanistan or
    the Baathist regime in Iraq (whichever it may be) is the enemy today, then that
    regime must always have been “in league with terrorists”, and thus “regime
    change” is needed. And if the facts say otherwise then the facts must be
    altered.

    Thus history is constantly rewritten. This day-to-day falsification of the
    past, carried out by the Zionist-controlled mainstream media whores, is as
    necessary to the stability of the American regime as the work of repression and
    espionage carried out by the Department of Homeland Security.

  8. dsm Says :

    There’s no such thing as free markets and free economy. They are myths. What USA for instance now has is socialism for the wealthy, all you need to do is to look at graphs on where the wealth is going. So redistribution of wealth does infact work, but it goes to the wrong people, to those who already have money.

    Socialisms is not the same as communism which is a far more extreme idea but never really tried in the world, since the last step of communism is the government dismantling itself…in the final stage people should now be in control.

    Not that I’m interested in the idea, but it has never happened in the world. I believe in distribution of wealth in the sense that the weakest of all societies should receive help. Capitalist societies have cracks in them and you never can know if you become sick. So you balance left and rightwing politics so that it serves the welfare of as many people as possible. But total equality can never be achieved and we shouldn’t even try to reach such a goal. Hard work has to pay of, but even should one become a cleaner you should make enough money to afford basic things like an appartment, healtcare and money enough to not to starve.

    /socialdemocrat from Europe…


  9. Edward I Says :

    James, you ignorant slut!  A little bit of socialism in a capitalist society is the only check and balance to unfettered greed.  And, there is a difference between social democracy and communism - ask any Swede, Finn, Norwegian, etc.  If you don’t know the difference, don’t post.

    And the rich are NOT better at doling out anything - except war, misery, taxes, and false pretenses of charity.  Big Brother is not infallable.  He can and will succumb to death.  Just like you someday.

     


  10. Dick Says :

    Yes it is really about getting rid of the Federal Reserve as it is and creating a mechanism that favours the people, not those who benefit from interest and the profits from privately manufacturing money.


  11. Juan Carlos Cruz Says :

    Socialism is the only cure, it is the only reality.   Even though most american people are scared of socialism because of 300 years of Anti-Socialism propaganda.  But the truth is that the world will sooner or later turn to socialism.  Not only socialism is good, and capitalism bad,  but we must turn to socialism right now, wether a lot of people won’t like it or not.  Well they will soon accept it, because socialist system can allocate resources for all, not like capitalism that only allocates resources for 1% of people

     

     

    Because of this:

     

    There is an issue with the conclusion - “to keep the entire structure of society intact”. That is not the purpose of those whose anthems are filled with dark age dominion heresies. The people we see and hear are just clerks - they may or may not beleive those chants - it does not matter.

  12. Cadavre Says :

    Dear Mr. Ackley 

    You suggested that socialism defeats technical and social development - should we exclude China? What about Cuba? The US is licensing Cuban bio-med patents. Almost 70% of Cuban have a college degree. They all have fun - of course they aint wearing the latest Sears “golf” apparel. There’s all sorts of conformity. Maybe Cubans conform to a different model of being “cool”.

    What about monks hidden in caves or rock towers. Some of our greatest achievers did their best work in what us “Wal-Mart” elite would consider dung holes.

    We are socialist. We share the the expense of common areas like roads, trains, airports, defense - and every other agency in the beltway - infact, we pretty much pay the rent for everything. What is wealth - if you’re going the “big shiney cars and top drawer lap dances” route, then that is the notion of wealth we have now. We are a hypno-consumer-society.  There is enough wealth on the planet to let us all act out our fantasy. Maybe asset wealth made sense during those times the wealthy had the fewest body lice - I don’t know. Maybe our notions of wealth are the manifestation of a mass media fed dominion heresy and a conditioned cultural inadequacy psychosis - again - still - don’t know.

    We are socialist. Being socialist improves our odds of getting laid.

    And, when you think about it - we - the mob - really control everything. The nobility would starve if we started turning off the spigets. We are the infra structure. We cultivate the nobility - when they screw up - and they have really screwed up this time - we harvest them - and break bread with their livers, lima beans and a good chiante -  “szxhsxcgclizzelaseddsa…”

    I really, really thought they knew this. (google marie antionette, musolini, ..)

    Now this is funny - All the reasons given to invade Iraq have been shown false - patent deceits. There are a bunch of dead Iraqi. Bunches. They died because of the unjustified invasion. So let say we go to court - what do we say - “murder, your honor, but with an explaination”?

    Another one of Saddam’s lawyers was found murdered. That brings it to 6. Saddam is not allowed in court to defend himself. If the invasion is wrong - then everything about Iraq is wrong including the trial of Saddam.

    EVERYTHING IS WRONG WITH IRAQ. The DU dust has blown over the UK. Iraq must glow in the radioactive gama image spectrums. Three headed babies to grace Paula Zahns Fab-Time-Hypno-Show. Future Springer shows with 2ed generation elephant men wondering why the cheerleader won’t give `em a lap dance!

    IRAQ, my friends, is a crime. Our treasury has been defauded. The illegal invasion of Iraq by the neo-conservative state within our state has been used along with the rest of the so called “war on terror” to extort us of trillions of dolars. We have had an oil glut since Bush took office - none the less - energy prices skyrocket - Californian’s were be “hair-cut” by energy tradors. FERC no longer charges enegy producers a tarrif through our [federally owned] property. Fraud - RICO - treason - corruption - you name it they gamed it.

    911 was an inside job.

    Our senate and congress have struck habeus corpus from the covenant - and the president will sign it - that, my friends, is treason.

    They’ve also set aside the Geneva Conventions on torture. The media hypes that it is to save the president - its to save to g-ddam senators and congressmen that approved it too. Those dirty tendrils from Cheny’s Engergy Task Force - their is enough there to throw all of them into the 400 Million dollar no bid contract super retention center that Haliburton is now building, Boeing wants to build a 700 Mile border fense for a zillion dollars - hell - I’ll build it for half a-zillion.

    Let Boeing and Haliburton get real jobs! 

    Double Dog dare them to begin a draft. Can see it now - lawsuits - regarding the DU - regarding the geneva convention - everything they’ve done will lock them up. Everything. Thy’re too f*cking stupid to realize it. Someone will sing and the walls will come tumbling down - GLORY HALAHALULYA!

    The game is over. Our neighbors are smart. They are our comrades. Talk to them. Put the face your district’s voting machines [s]elected to office on notice. Write MSM media sponsors.  Write pamplets. Gorilla Propaghanda Time - if you really want to save your arse.

    Don’t tread on me - one by land - two by sea! What kind of rich people are stupid enough to think that Americans have somehow been dulled by the generations to the point we will not respond when some f*cks with us - on our own terf - getting paid by us and working and living in buildings we f*cking own.

    We are the dreggs of the world. We ain’t civilized like the French or Mexicans. We’re American assholes - the worst beast of a man the planet has to offer and somehow these guys - these guys in suits - in the lights - and on the pulpit -  seem to have forgot the lessons our line has taught our little crop of nobility many, many times before. Their ignorance of this fact is at their own peril. They need to look for a way to backout now. They may survive with some similance of life should they begin your retribution and reconcilation immediately.

    Waiting much longer would be a definate no - no - suity beltway boyzies and girlzies.  

    Why do we always have to spell it out for them. I feel a good harvest this October - I think I got some Chiante coupons in the drawer.

    Fuck ‘em, fight ‘em, dynamite ‘em, they’re all shit.


  14. Mark Says :

    Isreal did 911.

    Google 911 Stranger than fiction.


  15. Todd Says :

    Dirty socialist propaganda of the past century was yet another obfuscation strategy of the plutocrats, designed to keep the gullible masses under their thumbs by tricking them into always vilifying capital for the disasters that socialist malinvestment caused (kind of like they’ve tried to trick people into vilifying muslims over 9-11).

    Socialism is cancer. Collectivism is slavery. Only free markets can save civilization.
