The following quotes from “1984″ should send shivers down anyone’s spine. Orwell’s work is mentioned frequently in the context of today’s society, and rightfully so. But do people realize just how incredibly exact these predictions are that are happening before our eyes?
Unfortunately it’s all, as in all, coming to pass, and then some. These few quotes from George Orwell’s predictive work will be an eye-opener to those who only have a cursory knowledge of the book and simply remember the Big Brother image and the control issue and accompanying paranoia.
That it was predicted so perfectly is still up for grabs. Was he privy to inside information? And if so, was he laying the groundwork for the future? Or was he blowing the whistle on what he’d found out while inside the Fabian Society with his predictive cohort Aldous Huxley?
Watch your mind fill in the blanks of just how today’s surveillance state has implemented these very control techniques that seemed like a far-fetched nightmare scenario years ago. Written in 1948 (hence the reverse 1984) in the sci-fi genre, it may just be the kind of wake up tool to use for those you’ve been trying to get through to. So called science fiction transcends the normal mind patterns and can elevate consciousness.
Any way you look at it, one cannot help but see this predictive programming fits like a glove for today’s dystopian world.
And that’s no mere coincidence.
Citizen Spies, Thoughtcrime and Disappearing People The Department of Homeland Security, founded on the heels of a staged 9/11, opened the floodgates for surveilance and citizen spying. Here’s an allusion to the eventual consequences of just such paranoid, oppressive state control to start off the book.
