George Orwell’s 1984 Was Just a Few Decades Early

The Dollar Vigilante

You want to talk hate-speech? Or extremism? Just walking my dog and wondering, how is open talk (and applause) about how we should reduce and control the population not the epitome of hate speech? We talk about Kill Gates and Satan Klaus a lot, largely because their eugenics and Great Reset plans are out and proud and the stuff flagships are made of. But neither are first, or last, when it comes to putting the torch to humankind…and passing it on in style. Here are some lesser-known comments from people all over time: “My firm conviction is that if wide-spread Eugenic reforms are not adopted during the next hundred years or so, our Western Civilization is inevitably destined to such a slow and gradual decay as that which has been experienced in the past by every great ancient civilization.” ― Leonard Darwin “The world’s population is 6.7 billion. If I live to be in my mid-eighties, it will have trebled. I simply can’t understand why no world statesmen have the guts to treat the issue with the seriousness it deserves. We seem to have given up on population control”. (2007) –– Boris Johnson “The ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.” ― Mikhail Gorbachev “When human craft and wickedness have reached their highest pitch, it must needs come about that the world will purge herself in one or another of these three ways: floods, plague and famine” ― Nicollo Machiavelli Floods. Plague. Famine. Well, waddyaknow…That’s exactly what’s happening! Not because of “climate change”, but something else… which is exactly what I’m talking about in today’s walk & talk. The apocalypse is real, it’s coming and it’s scary as f*ck –– IF you’re not planning accordingly. Although, most people won’t be planning, because they’re somehow still not seeing it. And the reason for that is because they are blind to the lies; the damned lies; and the statistical lies. They literally can’t see the truth if it bites them on the behind and eats them. Watch on: DollarVigilante.tv | Bitchute | Rumble The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic on 24 January 2019 – over a year before it happened!Gates’ $100 billion contact tracing deal – six months before the panic plandemic.The mRNA vaccines were patented and ready for human experimentation long before Covaids was detonated. But hey, if people are happy to proudly give up their sanity and physical and mental freedom to “save lives”, who am I to stop you. In fact, I’ll even tell you how “YOU Can Make The World Great Again”. It’s simple, let them put a 5G tower in your backyard, or if that doesn’t appeal, how about a shot of digital ID vaccine, followed by a chaser of some transhumanist mixology. Or maybe you can personally load your family and neighbors onto the camp trucks. Or stop eating meat, eggs and all other products that you can’t grow in your own survival garden, because then there will be more in the shops for others to buy – only, WAIT, they won’t be able to afford it. We are in a state of apocalypse right now and it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Now is the time to prepare yourself mentally, spiritually and physically and one way of doing that is by learning how you can turn this planned demolition into an opportunity. Only available to Dollar Vigilante subscribers. *** “To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, unless you become a zombie – then I promise to shoot you in the head.” ― Anonymous The post George Orwell’s 1984 Was Just a Few Decades Early appeared first on The Dollar Vigilante.

ReLIT: Animal Farm by George Orwell

Lit Society: Books and Drama

This week we're taking it back, way back. Before we were on YouTube, when we were still recording in Kari's dining room and taking pizza breaks midway through each episode, we cut one of our favorite shows – Animal Farm by George Orwell, and Compliance and Power of Authority. This book prompted a discussion about conformity that listeners still reference to this day.  While we're on break this week, we’re thrilled to revisit this episode with you during our extended weekend. We’ve even added a convo to the beginning that we know you'll love. Enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you again on June 8th with a new episode: Joe Gould's Secret by Joseph Mitchell and Are Bohemians People from the Bahamas. See you next week!

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

Lit Society: Books and Drama

Rockwell tried to tell us. A dystopian novel that becomes more evocative as reality mirrors its bleak fiction, 1984 is a vision of a world controlled by a totalitarian regime where not even your thoughts are safe. Is your cell phone watching you, or are you watching it? Are your neighbors spying on you for their political leader's advantage? Does the government own Twitter? Of course, the answer to all of these questions is yes, and this book explains how it all started. Before we dive into 1984, we'll discuss how to keep your privacy as safe as possible in 2021.

The 'Stay Awake Media' Podcast

1984 by George Orwell - Chapter 23Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Novel, often referred to as 1984, is a dystopian social science fiction novel by English novelist George Orwell. It was published on 8 June 1949 by Secker & Warburg as Orwell's ninth and final book completed in his lifetime. Thematically, Nineteen Eighty-Four centres on the consequences of totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of persons and behaviours within society.[2][3] Orwell, himself a democratic socialist, modelled the authoritarian government in the novel after Stalinist Russia.[2][3][4] More broadly, the novel examines the role of truth and facts within politics and the ways in which they are manipulated.The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, historical negationism, and propaganda. Great Britain, known as Airstrip One, has become a province of a totalitarian superstate named Oceania that is ruled by the Party who employ the Thought Police to persecute individuality and independent thinking.[5] Big Brother, the leader of the Party, enjoys an intense cult of personality despite the fact that he may not even exist. The protagonist, Winston Smith, is a diligent and skillful rank-and-file worker and Outer Party member who secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion. He enters into a forbidden relationship with a colleague, Julia, and starts to remember what life was like before the Party came to power.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-FourAudio taken from: youtu.be/4nGoU3RprhY

Philosophising From 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' - George Orwell

Mere Mortals Book Reviews

"In the face of pain there are no heroes." This is a small quote from the book 1984 (usually fully spelt out but I'm lazy today) by George Orwell. In this bonus episode I philosophise about some of the intriguing concepts raised by the book, which include: the structural and grammatical components of Newspeak and how the language was aimed to diminish consciousness, why living in the present was discouraged and how negative emotions were used as an energy outlet, the psychological burden of torture/meaninglessness/pain, doublethink and why it is a useful concept to use in real life and the genius of the book as a whole.As always, we hope you enjoy, Mere Mortals out!Timeline:(0:00) - Introduction(0:50) - Language modification and newspeak(6:05) - The past, present and future(10:41) - The need for an emotional pressure valve(12:40) - Psychological hell: knowing the how but not the why(18:54) - The value of consciousness(22:25) - Cultural mainstays: doublethink, control and sanity(28:41) - Why 1984 is so good!Connect with Mere Mortals:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/meremortalspodcast/
