This 4 part video series look at how, in many respects, we already live in George Orwell's '1984'.
Orwellian Part 1 - Indoctrinated to believe ridiculous statements-
Part 1 looks at the deception we face from the media and politicians and let's just say it, the complete bull # that the masses are fed on a daily
basis- they say one thing and then do the opposite. Politics and the media are just fronts where we are lied to consistently. Everything is
backwards- it's straight from '1984'.
I recommend watching this, it's very well put together and is horrible wake up call. If anything, part 1 highlights just how much of a joke
democracy is- the party leaders just lie and lie and lie, the people buy it up and vote for them even though every single time, all the promises are
forgotten as news wars are waged and the people lose more rights and taxes increase etc.
...And errrrr part 2 is yet to be uploaded (so I guess I'll post that when it comes up!) May as well still post part 1
I think it is important to note that Orwell was not writing about how it was going to be, but how it was. He was observing is slightly out of synch
terms of the times what was and what has always been. The reason he managed to draw attention to the book was this fact, it wasn't science fiction,
only a few elements were "new" as in video watching etc. but the rest was current to then as it is now, and was always for the white world.
"I think it is important to note that Orwell was not writing about how it was going to be, but how it was."
To me that just makes the similarities even more relevant. I remember reading 1984 around 1990 and thinking, you know what its kind of like that now!
But now its like the dude was Nostradamus for 2012. IMHO of course.
Ever since i read 1984, deep inside i knew someday that scenario would really happen to the world...The way events were taking place during the last
decades it looked clear that the big brother is going to watch and control over all aspects of our lives...And now it is happened...Some of us live
with it and some deny it.But it seems like there is no effort to fight it,at least not yet...Most people have a lot to loose in case of any
instability...They rather have an evil power watching them and slaving them all the time than loosing their comfort zone and the status quo.No more
cars laptops phones and big screens.God forbids you might even have to relocate at some point!..So everything those evils are doing are somehow ok and
justified,so long as they don't over dramatize it on the media and make it easy for everyone to swallow,and until it doesn't interfere with our
little lives in our shiny clean fairy lands.
