For me it was the War on (some people who use some) Drugs. I saw the costs (over 40 billion a year is spent on dealing with M (a weed)), the ravages
(people treated as criminals for altering their consciousness, families ripped apart, etc.), the shifts in the "American Way" (cops going from
"friendly neighborhood" to "pigs," a steep increase in police raids, spying on citizens, the death of the Fourth Amendment via property seizure
based on accusation alone - all "justified" by the "evils" of some drugs) and the lies...
Ah, yes, the lies.
I knew from research that M was particularly benign, even beneficial, and yet I saw well-funded BS coming out as Public "Service" Announcements and
I asked...WHY? The more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that there was a faction with an interest.
There had to be a goal, and the media were not helping matters, so at some level, they were involved, as well. No reports of M and its benefits were
widely offered. No in-depth examination of what we were doing to ourselves with these draconian laws that did NOT stem the drug flow... Lots of
"party line" attitude, though.
Rereading 1984 (as you mentioned) just clarified the whole for me. I reread it often these days, and it is amazing how we are being led daily closer
to that "ideal."
Yes, the NWO is indeed very real.
