Posted on 09/29/2009 8:20:24 AM PDT by Starman417
In 1949 George Orwell (pseudonym Eric Blair, 1903-1950) wrote 1984, a political prophecy that portrayed a Progressive Partys ultimate achievement of its Totalitarian goals in a Utopian State of complete Oligarchy. This chilling account of a Utopian Dream that evolved into a Dystopia was titled, 1984. So frightening was the premise of the novel, that the number 1984 became a part of our language, along with the nebulous figure of Big Brother.
Many who read the book breathed a sigh of relief when the year came and passed without the realization of the dreaded situations described in the book. Perhaps Orwells only flaw with 1984 was to predict the Progressive Political ascendancy a few decades prematurely. The Chinese and Russian Oligarchies were in full bloom by the late 1940s; it was within reason to assume the Totalitarian Progressive control of the United States and England in 35 years.
To accomplish this type of Oligarchy, it is necessary to have control over a certain segment of society, a segment that swears allegiance to a common cause and is willing to die for that cause, presumably for the benefit of the society as a whole. This has actually been happening for thousands of years; for the ancient Hebrew, it was only necessary to know that all other nations worshiped false Gods. This was reason enough to put other nations to the sword and to obliterate any trace of their existence.
Mao and Stalin became charismatic leaders of Totalitarian Oligarchies and obtained a celebrity status that approximated that of the Hebrew Jahweh and promptly killed over a hundred million of their own people in order to achieve a Progressive Utopia or a perfect Socialist Society.
In the novel 1984, there were many tactics revealed that were necessary to achieve the perfect Socialist State in the Western World during the second half of the twentieth century. Although Castro succeeded in Cuba, there was never a serious threat to the United States, despite the federal government being riddled with Soviet spies. The presence of Soviet spies during the 1940s was proven by the release of the Verona Cables, the declassification of KGB files and the confession of Whittaker Chambers.

Immediate future? It’s already here...
You need the Pocket Obama to go with this. Like Chairman Mao’s little red book.
Introducing ‘Pocket Obama’: Must-have Anthology of Obama Quotes
Just in case you can’t get through a day without some refreshing and uplifting words from the new president, the History Company has created the “Pocket Obama.”
This is a tiny, pocket-sized book filled with “quotations borrowed from Barack Obama’s speeches and writings.”
According to its creators, “It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times.”
I kid you not.
As proudly described :
Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama’s speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times.
Includes themes of democracy, politics, war, terrorism, race, community, jurisprudence, faith, personal responsibility, national identity, and above all, his hoped-for vision of a new America. POCKET OBAMA is a portable, everyday primer for readers who want to examine the substance of his thought and reflect on the next great chapter in the American story.
It seems they think people just can’t get enough Obama.
This is eerily similar to Mao’s Little Red Book.
Among the most widely printed books in history, Quotations had an estimated 5 to 6.5 billion copies printed during Mao’s attempt to transform Chinese society. The book’s phenomenal popularity may be due to the fact that it was essentially an unofficial requirement for every Chinese citizen to own, to read, and to carry it at all times during the later half of Mao’s rule, especially during the Cultural Revolution.
During the Cultural Revolution, studying the book was not only required in schools but was also a standard practice in the workplace as well. All units, in the industrial, commercial, agricultural, civil service, and military sectors, organized group sessions for the entire workforce to study the book during working hours. Quotes from Mao were either bold-faced or highlighted in red, and almost all writing, including scientific essays, had to quote Mao.
To defend against the theory that it would be counter-productive, it was argued that understanding Mao’s quotes could definitely bring about enlightenment to the work unit,resulting in production improvement to offset the time lost.
Most saw this book as a warning, but to the left, it is a blueprint.
Damn! I missed it!
Praying to Obama.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations
As I write this, we have suffered for 9 months and the evils are becoming less sufferable with each passing day. And we DO NOT want to CHANGE our form of government. We want back the original one those 56 men paid a huge price to leave us. It is Obama who is attempting to TRANSFORM (his word) America.
Nearly all the folks here understand how much trouble we’re in. It’s already gone so far that even PRAVDA has published editorials declaring that, at breath taking speed, America has given itself up to socialism without a whimper of SERIOUS protest (so far).
Even Vladimir Putin told Obama NOT to go down the road Russia took in the 1920s because the thing simply doesn’t work. Yet Obama persists. He has become the poster boy for the definition of “insanity:” DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER WHILE EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT.
If the SANE CITIZENS fail to turn this around in the next election (assuming there IS one and ACORN or its new incarnation doesnt steal it), we deserve precisely what these psychos have planned for us and our kids.
It will NOT be pretty or pleasant.
I arise each morning asking “How in the world did we get HERE??”
Then I recall that generations of government school indoctrination has churned out millions of new dumbed down socialists making it — and Obama — inevitable
We are truly LIVING the old saw that “The inmates are running the asylum.”
Since there is no evidence that these psychos will STOP pushing, some of us will be required to PUSH BACK and, just as in 1776, THERE WILL BE BLOOD!!
The time for choosing sides is at hand. Choose now before it begins to flow.
And when it does, God help us as, this time, it could go either way.
The immediate future is today ... so the answer is “yes”.
(Can you imagine Rip Van Winkle waking up after a long sleep and finding a Barack Obama in the White House? A Togo West as secretary of the Army was enough to make you barf.)
NOWHERE TO HIDE
7 MINUTE VIDEO ON OUR CURRENT MESS:
Orwellobama, ummm, ummm, ummm, Orwellobama, oh yeah! Obama is our leader. Obama is our god. We swear allegiance to Obama. Obama is our cause. Ummmm, Ummm, Ummm!
This totalitarian transformation that is occurring before our eyes, at a breathtaking, confounding pace didn’t just happen with 0. The totalitarians own our educational systems and institutions. They control our media. They are everywhere in our society, rotting our culture and spoiling our politics. Orwell’s vision started a long time ago. We pat ourselves on the back for being a society that tolerates a Marxist revolution. How can it not happen?
1. Has not read 1984
2. Did not understand 1984
3. Has no problem with the way things were in 1984.
Good question but I find the analysis a bit hokey and lacking an understanding of Orwell's work. The swipe at the Hebrews, what's that all about? The assertion is incorrect and only applies to the occupants of the Promised Land. Also exhibits a misunderstanding of the role of history and how it is manipulated to control a literate public. Perhaps an unwitting blend of "Farenheit 451" in some of the articles assumptions or interpretations?
Also lacking, demonizing the "resistance" whose existence was useful to the oligarchs, whether the resistance actually existed or not. Orwell's totalitarian regimes arose from a global crisis, a global nuclear war. Our current "regime" is doing its best to manufacture a crisis. Financial, environmental, nuclear, pandemics; take your pick.
Or perhaps an incident.
I wouldn't be surprised to see an Obama staffer or czar turn up at Marcy Park with a swastika chiseled into his forehead and some racist comment pinned to his shirt.
It could generate sympathy for the administration.
(Got all that down, White House?)
