So 1984 has practically turned into a globally expanding prophecy. Sad to lose such a visionary. Id like to make a few comparisons.

Its like the book has become a bible to these Elitists. The Ideas have been leaking out into the real world and sucking us into the pages. I may be "crazy" but it seems to me like we are following a narrative that does'nt end well for any of us common folks. The only thing that does'nt fit into this is the planned "Utopian" One World Government we are ever so crudely being pushed towards by world powers. But everything else is well on course. The biggest push seems to be focused towards speech and thought under the guise of "Peoples feelings" whilst war is ever present in the background.

So what do we have? Government dictatorship, Government Worship via figureheads, A slow Re-Writting of terminology limiting thought, A state of perpectual war, Flase war on drugs, poverty etc.., Expansive Surveilance, Dumbing down of society, Division of wealth....

Or another way to put it; Big Brother, Thought Crime, DoubleThink, BlackWhite, DoubleSpeech(Attributed), CrimeStop, CrimeThink, InnerParty, OuterParty, Prole and War.

We have the Celebrity and News culture today or the;

Versificator - A writing machine. A mechanical device that produced "literature" and "music" for the masses. This was necessary so that a party member would not be forced to cloud their mind with such frivolous concepts. It produced rubbishy newspapers containing almost nothing except sport, crime and astrology, sensational five-cent novelettes, films oozing with sex, and even sentimental songs.

Prolefeed - Rubishy "Entertainment" and spurious news which the Party handed out to the masses. This includes written literature, movies, porn, music, and other various propaganda created for the proles.

The three main superstates now



Eastasia - Smallest of the 3 Superstates.(Political System: Death Worship/Obliteration of Self) Comprised of China and the countries to the south of it, Japan, and a large (but fluctuating) portion of Manchuria, Mongolia, and Tibet.

Eurasia - One of the 3 Superstates. (Political System: Neo-Bolshevism) Comprised of the whole northern part of the European and Asiatic land-mass, from Portugal to the Bering Strait. Eurasia was Oceania's enemy at the start of the book, and by the end Eurasia had always been Oceania's ally.

Oceania - One of the 3 Superstates. (Political System: Ingsoc) Winston Smith's home. Comprised of North and South America, Britain, Australia, and southern portions of Africa. Newspeak is the official language of Oceania, but standard English is still spoken by many

So when does it end? Or are we being committed to a future that does'nt look so bad now but will end in Dystopia?

Oranges and lemons
Say the bells of St. Clements
I owe you five farthings
Say the bells of St. Martins
When will you pay me?
Say the bells at Old Bailey
When I grow rich Say the bells at Shoreditch
When will that be? Say the bells of Stepney
I'm sure I don't know Says the great bell of Bow
Here comes a candle to light you to bed
Here comes a chopper to chop off your head
Chip chop chip chop the last man's HEAD!

Nice parallel and comparisons.

The reason it always ends up the same is because the worlds geography doesn't change. The same land masses, oceans, passes, straits and canals, the same greed, corruption and men drunk with power who want more power.

It always ends the same because it always begins the same, with massed populations in cities ruled by demagogues that think they know whats best for everyone.

Time for another burning of the tower of Babel.

Thread of the week award goes to YOU OP

You articulated the similarities from 1984 and modern day geopolitics. Very interesting thread. You are asking the right questions my friend - "What do we do?"

We discuss what is going on with family, friends, neighbors (and the ATS community). Remember the Civil Rights? Remember other times in history when the people have stood up? It took organization, communication, groupthink - strategize together.
That's my opinion anyway

It will be total Orwellian when Chinatown disappears. China town = key to everything. I guarantee you all Asian towns will get affected when we war against East Asia. I mean China.

They tried to pull this shhs by enslaving Black Race. Then they tried by attempting to enslave Chinese. They will do it again. White Power! All Race GTFO America. Oh right where are the natives? They don't exist in the history books. America had always been white. For Whites only. Every other race is lesser race.

It is a scary reality we are in for anyone thinking a few steps ahead. That last video is about as scary as you can get in terms of Thought Policing/Manipulating.

When that gets implemented I will lose all faith in every system.

None of this has anything to do with skin color, it's about power by any means to the benefit of psychopaths. These people don't care the color of your skin or ethnicity, white, black, asian, whatever the # you are, if your not them, which is a select few people they deem worthy, then we're all on the dinner plate.

So sick of this "white power" crap, as if these predators give any more #s about the poor white man than anyone else. It has nothing to with white power, pull your head out your ass and realize they want us divided by race so we don't unite against them.

The plan is to scare the public into believing they can use your brain against you.

Even if they can't. It's extremely alarming the way that they talk about it, and graphically describe the human brain as a "blob of meat we can decode your brain"

These people truly are psychopaths!!!

These essays and articles I have found to be particularly pertinent today, along with 1984 (Emmanual Goldstein anyone?):

Writer and Leviathan
Through a glass, rosily.
The Prevention of Literature
Politics and the English Language
What is fascism?

The strangling of free speech, the prevalence of a growing thought police, politi-speak, and a media that would make a totalitarian country proud, all make Orwell important reading, especially today.

It has never been so apparent that Orwell was going to be accurate, the date was what has proven to be arbitrary.
