Welcome to 1984- 25 years late

Imagine a world where people fear that their opinions cannot be expressed freely (Patriot Act) ("you're either with us or you're with the terrorists"), where leaders are not held accountable for their deceptions (George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, "we do not torture"), and perpetual war is waged against an unseen enemy ("War on Terror" ); a world where ignorance is strength (teabaggers, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, right-wing extremists), freedom is slavery (workers who can barely live paycheck to paycheck while the corporations they toil for reap record profits), war is peace (Afghanistan, Iraq) and Big Brother is watching you (Patriot Act).

George Orwell created this world more than half a century ago in his novel 1984, but as we can see above, his "fiction" was truly "prediction", for that is the world we live in today. How did we get here?

Corporatists world wide have had their government minions, their political puppets in the United States and abroad set in motion and/or carried out the tasks that now enthrone Big Brother. These tasks range from rigged elections in the United States and elsewhere, to free markets, extreme corporate deregulation, the Patriot Act and much more. Generations of wealthy families such as the Rothschilds, the Rockerfellers, and others along with board members from many large publicly-traded corporations such as IBM, Xerox, Royal Dutch Shell, Nokia, Daimler, Archer-Daniels-Midland, Goldman Sachs, and board members from large international corporations as well. These people, these families are seeing their greedy, inhumane fantasies nearing full flower.

Within 20 years or less the entire population of the world will be enslaved. Perhaps not in the "traditional" ways that come to mind, but replace the plantation owners with Corporatists and the slave hands with today's working class- and you get the comparison. We will toil to fill the pockets of the Masters and we the people will live without hope, or dreams, we will live with GMO foods which sap our strength, our powers of reason; we will live with fluoridated water, and aspartame, which serve among other things to dumb us down. We will have no affordable health care and will die without notice of our Corporate bosses. If we do manage to live and produce they will simply wait until we no longer add to their profits, until we are declared old and obsolete at 50 then we will be infected with Morgellons or some other bio-weapon that's been sprayed on us via chem-trails for years. Okay, I admit some things in this paragraph seem too wacky, and I don't necessarily believe all of it- but with what we know about our government- you have to admit that it could be true! Either way we will have to be happy with what little pittance they give us. As many of you know this is already somewhat true today.

In a film version of Orwell's 1984 (which I didn't really care for) we saw that citizens were constantly bombarded with a continual media stream (like 24/7 cable news) with images, hints, references, etc., about a war- but the enemy was never seen. It was ethereal yet terrifying, the enemy was always lurking behind every corner but never seen, enemy soldiers were everywhere yet never seen. In the film there is no real proof that an enemy actually exists except for the reports on the State Controlled (Corporatist Controlled) news media, or testimony from troops who were involved in battle. Sounds pretty familiar doesn't it?

Have you ever wondered why we have such a high suicide rate among our troops? Could it be that they know that they are fighting for corporatist profit instead of Freedom & Democracy?

Why has the Government contracted out much of the fighting to corporate mercenaries? Well one reason is that more profits for the puppet masters can be reaped in such manner. And another reason could be that our troops have not been fully indoctrinated to the Corporatist cause and began to see what was really happening in Iraq & Afghanistan.

We hear reports on our 24/7 news feeds that our enemies- Al Qaeda, The Taliban, the Jihadists, Muslims, etc., are hiding in caves and mountains, that there are alarming rates of sleeper cells living amongst us, and that "home grown" terrorists are multiplying faster than foreclosures. But much like Orwell's fiction- these people are never brought in front of us, we never see them. We are led to believe that they have been stopped, that Homeland Security, CIA, FBI...ert., have stopped hundreds of terror attacks inside the U.S. but we never hear details. We are just supposed to believe they have been stopped- either legally or by extraordinary rendition, or they have been disappeared. They use whatever words are palatable for the day- either way it's all a work of fiction-just like Orwell's.

Now these enemies may exist. If they do, it is of little doubt that they have been created by corporate policy's which leave third world countries broke, starving, and desperate. I myself believe that some terrorists do exist, but I don't buy the numbers we hear, the "sleeper cells" etc. I think that the majority of these reported enemies- these terrorists exist only in the HD transmission waves that attack our reasoning, our daily lives. Media is controlled by corporatists who dictate what should be reported. If you think not- here are a few examples.

Rupert Murdoch owns News Corp., Fox Broadcasting Co., 85% of Fox Entertainment Group- which includes these holdings. General Electric Owns NBC, USA, Bravo, MSNBC, SciFi. Here are all the American Media owners. You'll notice that a lot of these Media owners also have DOD contracts- coincidence? You be the judge.

If you need more proof that we are fighting a bogey man, an ethereal enemy, consider Lt. General William G. Boykin, once United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, who preached sermons, which he gave in at least 23 churches. Standing in full uniform he described "the enemy" thus... "it's not what you can see. It's the enemy in the spiritual realm." Spiritual wars and terrorists are even more invisible than the supposed clandestine sleeper cells, and cave dwellers- the evil doers. Boykin even stated that the leader of our enemy- "the terrorists"- was not Osama bin Laden, but SATAN. He went on to explain that Satan and Muslims had a goal of slaughtering a "moral Christian Army".

If you are still reading this, then some of it-or all of it- is resonating within you. That's a good thing- it goes to show that you haven't been completely brainwashed by the Corporatists whole damn dumb show. It gives us a little bit of hope that maybe, just maybe we can stop this horseshit before it's too late.

Here are some more things to ponder.

1.We are told in an infinite number of ways, some of which are very subtle, some even subliminally, and some extremely bluntly to be fearful of "the terrorists", the "evil-doers". Remember when all the news channels had us running out to buy duck-tape and sheets of plastic? But we are never warned to be afraid of lightening to stock up on rubber soled shoes. We're never warned to be fearful of prescription drugs or unsanitary hospital conditions. No one tells us not to buy fireworks or to be scared of them. All of these things kill many more people each year than do terrorists.

2.The role of the CIA been stated by many in differing ways but I think Professor Leuren Moret's description is much more accurate, she states, "The CIA's principal job is to get the American citizens to hate certain peoples in the world so much that they will limitlessly spend their money and wealth on war." This is all pretty well laid out in the infamous PNAC document from the Project for the New American Century.

George W. Bush said, "We're at war with these folks, but they don't wear uniforms,,," they could be anywhere, but we never see them. He went on..."The terrorists' directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews,..." I guess we Buddhist and all my freethinker, atheist friends are safe.

Bush continues, "to kill and make no distinctions among military and civilians, ..." Here he is trying to get us off the hook for our future killing of so many civilians.

He then declares, "This group and its leader,... are linked to many other organizations in different countries, including the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan. " Setting the stage perhaps for future preemptive wars in Egypt & Uzbekistan?

Then just to broaden and make the scope of our fear raise dramatically he spouts, "There are thousands of these terrorists in more than 60 countries. They are recruited from their own nations and neighborhoods and brought to camps in places like Afghanistan where they are trained in the tactics of terror. " Strange that he didn't mention Iraq- since Saddam Hussein helped plot and carry out 9/11. Oh wait_! That was just a lie to get us to illegally occupy Iraq.

I also find it strange that in this joint session of Congress held by the President, that no one yelled out "YOU LIE". We all know he lied, why wasn't he called out?

Now, 8 years later we never hear anything about hunting Osama bin Laden, or anyone who was in the infamous deck of terrorist playing cards. No today Homeland Security is too busy being fully focused watching, monitoring,eavesdropping, etc., on ordinary American citizens.

I don't know about you, but the parallels between Orwell's war and the "war on terror" are just a little to strong for my liking. Wars have always been fought against a known enemy, not against everyday people who "could be a terrorist". All the puppet-headed politicians have admitted over and over, "we can't see the enemy. They could be anywhere." So tell me what the hell we are doing killing Afghans, and Iraqis?

What we are doing is exactly what the Corporatist Megalomaniacs want- setting the stage for them to rule, and profit even more. These terrorists we are fighting now, the invisible, child murdering, Christan slaying animals who could live next door, the ones we can't see with our very own eyes- are created in and dwell in the realm of the Corporatist Media. And it is these people, the Corporatists, that are inflicting terror globally, these are the devils we should be fighting.
