The whole western population is subject to television news propaganda.

Television news always presents Russia in a negative light.

Greatest

 

In my opinion 1984 is history's greatest novel. Huxley's Brave New World is a classic of comparable class.

 

One idea of great perceptiveness in 1984 was the concept of eliminating Thought Crime by eliminating the vocabulary required to express seditious thought. Each new edition of the Newspeak dictionary in Oceania weeded out words that permitted the mind to wander beyond set limits.The NWO has expanded this concept greatly. Google dishes up propaganda when you search for the truth. Key in names associated with the JFK assassination, for instance and you are directed to shills like David von Pein or John McAdams who specialize in defending the lone nut narrative.

The Internet solves this problem. 
 
The Russian version of Facebook solves the Google/Facebook problem.

Memory Hole

 

Another great Orwellian concept was that of the Memory Hole. Consigning events to the Memory Hole is a wonderful mind control tool. The images of the fictitious "UA 175" being swallowed whole by the South Tower  have been consigned to the Memory Hole. As have the 2011 events at Fukushima where hundreds of tons of radioactive water continue to bleed into the ocean.

Glass Cellar

 

A phrase that has been removed from recent versions of the Newspeak manual is "Glass Cellar". NWO "feminists" have bleated for decades about the Glass Ceiling that supposedly prevents women from reaching senior corporate and political positions. The phrase Glass Cellar refers to the societal barrier that prevent women from falling to depths that men reach - shitty jobs with terrible working conditions, etc. Tramps, and so on.

The Past

 

During Winston Smith's interrogation by O'Brien the latter makes the point the past is finished and done with. It isn't being relived on some other dimension. It is up to the Party thus to record history as it sees fit. Individual memories and objective reality are irrelevant and unimportant. The Party's record is unquestionable, final and irrevocable. Unless of course the Party wants to revise the past. Wikipedia insists that the fictitious "UA 175" crashed into the South Tower. No other opinion is tolerated. It is actually dangerous to openly question the official version of the Holocaust.

False Flags

 

1984 is open to the idea of False Flag black ops. Winston Smith's lover Julia believed that the rocket bombs that frequently hit London were launched by the Oceanian government itself.

Limitations

 

1984 had it's limitations. Orwell had to have the book published and therefore could not name the group that runs the world. The villain who conducted the interrogation of Winston Smith was O'Brien rather than a Goldberg or a Rubinstein. The dissident portrayed with some sympathy on the other hand was Emmanuel Goldstein who bears some resemblance to Trotsky. It is not clear whether the three warring states Oceania, Eurasia and East Asia are part of a World Government or actually independent states. The rather shabby dystopia that Orwell portrays did not eventually appear. Instead we have a flashy consumerist Western "utopia" where freedom of thought does not exist.

New Words

 

Each updated version of the Newspeak Manual does of course introduce new words and phrases. Male chauvinist is one. Homophobe is another. Sexism a third. The first in this list was apparently introduced by a Jewish playwright in the 1930's. The second was popularized by a Jewish pornographer in the 60's or 70's. I am not sure who created the third word in the list.

Football

 

“So long as they (the Proles) continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern...Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.”

Freedom

 

 

  • It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well. It isn't only the synonyms; there are also the antonyms. After all, what justification is there for a word which is simply the opposite of some other word? A word contains its opposite in itself. Take "good", for instance. If you have a word like "good", what need is there for a word like "bad"? "Ungood" will do just as well.
  • Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.
  • 'The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there’s no reason or excuse for committing thoughtcrime. It’s merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won’t be any need even for that. The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect. Newspeak is Ingsoc and Ingsoc is Newspeak,' he added with a sort of mystical satisfaction. 'Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?'
  • ‘By 2050 — earlier, probably — all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared. The whole literature of the past will have been destroyed. Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron — they’ll exist only in Newspeak versions, not merely changed into something different, but actually changed into something contradictory of what they used to be. Even the literature of the Party will change. Even the slogans will change. How could you have a slogan like “freedom is slavery” when the concept of freedom has been abolished? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking — not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.’
  • One of these days, thought Winston with sudden deep conviction, Syme will be vaporized. He is too intelligent. He sees too clearly and speaks too plainly. The Party does not like such people. One day he will disappear. It is written in his face.

The Past

 

What happened in the unseen labyrinth to which the pneumatic tubes led, he did not know in detail, but he did know in general terms. As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of ‘The Times’ had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in its stead. This process of continuous alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound-tracks, cartoons, photographs — to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date.

Ministry of Truth

 

This building currently owned by the University of London is believed to be the inspiration for Orwell's Ministry of Truth building. I have actually photographed this building myself from the British Museum. However my own photographs only appear as thumbnails, hence the photo from the web.

Olof Palme

 

I thought I'd do a bit of research ahead of starting a new Olof Palme thread. One dealing with his highly suspicious assassination. When I googled (jewgled) all I got was the Jew York Slimes and others of their ilk. The web has been purged of the work of curious truth seekers.
