George Orwell | 1984 | Doublethink

1984: Big Brother is watching

I subscribe to a few blogs of really nice people; a lady comes to mind. She is a writer, which is one of the reasons I subscribed to her blog.  Sometimes I tweet her posts because they have stories I consider worth reading, human interest stories. In every way I can think of she is fine lady; she very much represents the average American citizen. 

But if I ever make a comment on her posts, pertinent to the post but regarding the moral lacking in our government (for instance AE 9/11 Truth), she will completely ignore it, as if our government couldn’t do wrong. She refuses to see it. Any other comment she will respond to. Isn’t that scary; all these “nice” people are helping ruthless tyrants and assassins. 1984 is late but it is here. 

George Orwell coined the word doublethink: “The acceptance of contrary beliefs at the same time, especially as a result of political indoctrination.” The indoctrination have been so effective that people will refuse to believe evidence right in front of their very eyes; they refuse to believe that they are being deceived. And worse they are incapable of doing anything about it. Our “shadow” government has done such a great job.

Big Brother is watching, please welcome 1984. It is late but it is here.  Brace yourselves!

What to do:

  • Don’t do business with the mega banks (Citibank, Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo etcetera) that is doing business with the enemy. Too big to fail means they are above the law; nobody should be above the law. They are getting away with murder. Stay away from these: tapeworm twenty
  • Don’t buy “made in China (or somewhere else)” stuff. It comes from sweat shops; you are supporting corporate gangsters when you do. If you are pressed for cash get your clothing at the thrift store, so you don’t encourage the clothing giants and support small business. Go to American Apparel.
  • Don’t join the army. You are fighting for the corporations that comprise the military industrial complex (they are making money on war, blood money) not for democracy. If we bring our troops home the crisis ends.
  • Buy an electric car. The oil companies are a great part of the problem.
  • Stay away from the mainstream media; it’s misleading. 
  • Do your homework, so you can understand what is going on, and accept your own responsibility in the matter. Your inaction will keep the tyrants in power and they are extremely dangerous.

  1. Interesting thoughts worth pondering. Certainly we need to take measures as citizens to protect ourselves.

    If we don’t take action, we support the tyrants.

  3. Hi Rio,

    You used the term double-think on my blog recently. I’m not sure if you are referring to my site but you are aware of my criticism of the systemic problems everywhere.

    It’s especially agrecious for mothers who make the children and then get to send them off to the wars you are referring too. The thing that gives me the greatest hope is that the masters of the universe have some respect for their moms. How do you access that? I really want to tap into that part of their psychology ….and to reprimand their moms for raising greedy kids!

    I think that these are very practical and good steps. I especially like the thrift shop idea.

  4. Hi Heather!
    It was referring to someone else’s blog.
    I am aware of your awareness of the systemic problems plaguing our world today, but I see also a contradiction a “doublethink.” That is why I used the word.
    I don’t think I get the . . . “how do you access that?” What do you mean?
