Orwell’s 1984: Are We There Yet?

George Orwell wrote 1984 in 1948 as a political satire of a totalitarian state and a denunciation of Stalinism.


Orwell himself was a socialist, who fought for the republicans in the Spanish Civil War and was wounded by a sniper bullet to the throat. As the West became aware of the horrors of Stalin, Orwell became disillusioned.
1984 was Orwell’s resulting futuristic-cautionary tale of Winston Smith in a world of government domination defined by anxiety, hatred, and cruelty. 
The Party, whose head is reverently called Big Brother, presides over existence through omnipresent surveillance and mind control. Their subjugated citizens are programmed not only to accept if Big Brother says that 2 + 2 = 5, but also to believe it. 
Winston’s adventures begin as he slowly and fearfully steps out of the established traces, sensing the hypocrisy that surrounds and penetrates him, to search for truth. What he finds is pain. 

War is Peace

Freedom is Slavery

Ignorance is Strength

Telescreens

Doublethink

Newspeak 


“We are the dead. Our only true life is in the future. We shall take part in it as handfuls of dust and splinters of bone. But how far away that future may be, there is no knowing. It might be a thousand years. At present nothing is possible except to extend the area of sanity little by little. We cannot act collectively. 


We can only spread our knowledge outwards from individual to individual, generation after generation. In the face of the Thought Police there is no other way.”

I have been writing for 7 years now that the GOP wants to put America into the World of Orwell’s 1984 and they are very close to getting it done. 

Fox News and Rush have brain washed so many people I am not sure we can save the Country. It will take many of those that Watch Fox to actually Wake up and join the Progressives and really take the Country back from the ABYSS called Republican.
