Care to expand on that thought?
I’d have to say that war will never be peaceful, the ignorant will always be weak and breed more ignorance, but I’m fairly convinced that freedom is an illusion for most of us.

Everything they tell us is 180 degrees from the truth. From anything politics to mainstream...lies lies lies

It is like they can't believe that we eat this up day after day. So they get more and more ridiculous, wanting to see where the line is. Now they are just getting frustrated because they can't find the line of disbelief, we continue to lap it up.

Go democrats!!!! oh wait .... no errrr .... Go republicans!!!!!! .... wait no ... ummmm

Go GOVERNMENT!!!!! Make us SAFE!!!!

Aww yes 1984. I believe he got a lot right and Huxley got some things right. It’s more like a mix between the two of them now.

war is peace

The maintenance of arms and the armies who will carry them into battle are, in fact, a sound strategy for averting war through readiness. However, if you are at war like we have been for 20 years and then call that peace, then we're going to have a problem.

freedom is slavery

In today's society, the individual is free to destroy him/herself with dependence on pornography, addiction to drugs, obesity, and the myriad diseases that accompany. He/She is free to be validated in the self-destruction via various "movements" that remove all personal responsibility from the individual for whatever justification is sought.

The "body positivity movement" excusing and encouraging obesity, people engaging in dangerous and unproven pseudo-medical interventions because they think biological facts are mere opinions held by snooty learned people who are all somehow in the employ of an evil mastermind who is doing a #ty job of killing us all with his vaccines.

# the Man for his incompetence.

We do, also, have the freedom to think and express that thought PEACEABLY(we don't).

We have reserved the right to seek education and information so that we might innovate, create, and prosper.

We, as free individuals, have to maintain those rights by tempering them with responsibility. We haven't bothered with this aspect of liberty much in the last few decades, so today we are faced with the very real prospect of losing our liberties in silence or in a loud civil war. Loud enough to be one of the 7 Trumpets that herald our judgment, if you believe that sort of thing.

What then is freedom to We the People of America? We seem to be totally enslaved to our freedom. So much so that we have trapped ourselves in a cage of hedonism and degeneracy that is beginning to cause real damage to the United States and her people. We are literally killing ourselves with our freedom.


Because we refuse Responsibility. God forbid I should correct the words of George Orwell, however, "Freedom is Slavery" is meant as a treatise against government censorship and reality-twisting. The term on its own is incomplete in any other context. Freedom becomes Slavery when we abdicate Responsibility for the wanton permissiveness our hedonism demands.

ignorance is strength

This one I do see a lot of in a straightforward fashion. So many believe their opinions to be above reproach and that being entitled to HAVE an opinion is equivalent to stating a fact.

The vast majority of Americans cannot tell the difference between a statement of fact (whether true or not is immaterial because you should be fact-checking) and a statement of opinion that leads to conclusions that do not hold up even on the most cursory levels of analysis. When confronted with this reality people just don't give a #. This is the most discouraging thing about our society today.

All of the above has culminated in a Global Superpower populated with nihilistic masturbators who are slaves to their basic drives while the rest of the world plans on a future that doesn't include us.

What kind of hell storm do you think that will create?

I do what I can to make things better and discourage the nihilism in our society. But this dark cloud is so pervasive and it is starting to rain.

Hi CS.
We're fine! Are we not doing fine ?

If we live in Corportocracies: then the point-of-no-return of ridiculous, might be when we see folks not only wearing a corporate logo on every piece of clothing proudly, but even paying a premium to do so.

NY Yankees™ caps; Coors-Lite™ T-shirts; Reebok™ pants; Adidas™ shoes...
NASCAR™; John-Deere™;

Now that would be Ridiculous™ !

Call it what you will - the Grand Illusion - The Betterment of Man(kind) - The Strength in Diversity - The American Dream - The Awakening or Transcendence - The Three Principles - The Way - World Peace - Galactic Federation

For 90+% of humankind, it's all about Point of View, the half full or empty glass, the presence or absence of light,what is or is not good and what is or is not evil. From basic fact differences. to fore drawn conclusions. & ultimately, misguided justifications based on such - it ALL depende upon how one Looks at it.

Regardless, Epstein did Not kill himself.

Agreed Op, since about the year 2000 seems like everything changed, at least for me.

Key I find is to keep like minded individuals with common sense in and around my life!
