“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” — Henry Ford
The Elite give us the illusion of freedom but control all of the choices. The Elite give us the choice of 500 cable stations, yet the same message comes from all of the channels. They give us aisles and aisles of food, yet 90% of it is just corn and soy byproducts. They give us the choice of hundreds of political candidates, yet nothing changes because both sides are bought and paid for by the Elite. They give you the choice of investments of stocks, bonds, and real estate but when this all goes down, you will see that it is all apart of the same illusion of the dollar. The Elite, of course, controls the dollar. If you do not think independently for yourself, you cannot help but to be controlled, whether you know it or not. Every aspect of your life is monitored, regulated, taxed and controlled, not for your betterment, but for betterment of others…
A Brave New 1984
Perhaps by coincidence 1984 encodes 2012 (1+19 is 20 and 8+4 is 12) – or the world described in the book is becoming a reality 28 years later?
Aldous Huxley’s tour de force, Brave New World is a darkly satiric vision of a “utopian” future—where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment.
Aldus Huxley’s Brave New World describes a futuristic dehumanized world in which people are born in a test tube, raised by the government and channeled into various roles. They are taught how to think, feel and behave. There is no more family, no religion, no values other than those instilled in you by science and technology, the perfect “politically correct” society. There is no such thing as individualism. The state has all the answers and the state engineers and directs every person to fulfill their particular role. One wonders if this isn’t the utopia the present Administration has in mind. Let the State take over all aspects of life. Who needs a family? It takes more than a village. Let society raise children.
Published in 1949, the book “1984” offers political satirist George Orwell’s nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff’s attempt to find individuality.
Resistance is futile. The book is a classic story of manipulation by the government media and manufactured crisis to keep people under control. The greater the threat level, the more willing the people are to go along with greater control. This is not just true in a novel but we see it every day as surveillance increases exponentially – from cameras on street corners, to cyber surveillance of Internet traffic to intrusive “know your customer” rules in our everyday banking. If you deposit too much money or seem suspicious in any way, the bank must report you or face fines and penalties. Is this vision becoming our reality?
The richest people on the planet create, orchestrate and execute ALL WARS! Wars are good for BUSINESS. ‘They’ sell the bullets AND the bandages.
Is America DOOMED?
Today we face a dependency on government largesse for almost every need. Our liberties are restricted and government operates outside the rule of law, protecting and rewarding those who buy or coerce government into satisfying their demands. Here are a few examples:
- Undeclared wars are commonplace.
- Welfare for the rich and poor is considered an entitlement.
- The economy is over-regulated, overtaxed and grossly distorted by a deeply flawed monetary system.
- Debt is growing exponentially.
- The Patriot Act and FISA legislation passed without much debate have resulted in a steady erosion of our 4th Amendment rights.
- Tragically our government engages in preemptive war, otherwise known as aggression, with no complaints from the American people.
- The drone warfare we are pursuing worldwide is destined to end badly for us as the hatred builds for innocent lives lost and the international laws flaunted. Once we are financially weakened and militarily challenged, there will be a lot resentment thrown our way.
- It’s now the law of the land that the military can arrest American citizens, hold them indefinitely, without charges or a trial.
- Rampant hostility toward free trade is supported by a large number in Washington.
- Supporters of sanctions, currency manipulation and WTO trade retaliation, call the true free traders “isolationists.”
- Sanctions are used to punish countries that don’t follow our orders.
- Bailouts and guarantees for all kinds of misbehavior are routine.
- Central economic planning through monetary policy, regulations and legislative mandates has been an acceptable policy.
