First off I'd like to say elements of both are in play and I will outline the
proof here below...
1)Subverting the distribution of books:
2)Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information:
See the above link yet again, and consider the fake rape charges against the Wikileaks ppl.
Consider the Hadley Climate Unit being caught red handed lying about the Global Warming data.
3) Orwell feared the truth would be concealed from us.
Operation Northwoods, Operation Gladio, JFK files still sealed and public not allowed
to see them,
the multiple security video tapes from the buildings that filmed the area around the
OKC bombing still not available as evidence to the case or to the public, the multiple
video security tapes of the public buildings around the pentagon on the day of 911,
and I could keep going on this one but will stop here.
4) Orwell feared we'd become a captive culture.
Culture is defined by many as ... The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or
To make this captive you'd one could use Neurolinguistic programming, Subliminal messaging,
and Propaganda tactics as described by Bernays.
5) Inflicting pleasure or pain as a method of control.
The pleasure part would be all the many entertainments in our society.
The pain part would be using fear to control the ppl thru real or imagined threats
such as terrorism. The constant news angles of fear of foreign nations
that just so happen to have lots of oil reserves that we need to whip in line.
A lot of ppl forget that most of the chemical weapons Iraq bought came from
US and other Western nations.
A lot of ppl forget we backed Saddam Hussein in his war against Iran.
A lot of ppl forget the the fighters who beat back Russia in Afghanistan were US funded.
What was done to JFK, MLK, and JFK's brother shocked the nation and it has been
agreed b many ppl that the whole truth of those events has yet to be known and
it put many ppl in great fear.
All tools of control.
6) What we hate will ruin us.
This one is so simple its hilarious.
This is textbook divide and conquer, ie. Us vs. them, they almost do not have to do
anything to achieve this one as it is damn near human nature.
Racism, Religion, Politics, Sexuality, Corruption, Class Warfare, and on and on....
The gays vs. those who oppose them
The minorities of many types vs. those who would treat them unfairly.
The Democrats vs. the Republicans vs. the ppl that think both are corrupt beyond repair.
The Catholics vs. the Protestants of Ireland, Sharia Islam vs. those who seek religious freedom.
The Crony Capitalists vs. the ethical workers and whistle blowers who lose their jobs for
reporting lies in the reports from top level government offices like Sibel Edmonds.
The poor vs. the rich, what a great mess this one is shaping up to be.
It has all the potential of the french revolution except the peasants are not buying pitchforks.
The anger and distrust is so high that a retired president who has many other
things on his mind has event noticed it though he is quite advanced in age.
The man is right, and like Rahm has said in the past this crisis will not go to waste.
Divide and Conquer is alive and well and while the nation is busy tearing itself apart
and unity is out of reach the puppeteers are preparing for their next encore performance.
Good Luck to all the good ppl...
