Do you ever feel as if you are living in 1984?
Double Speak, Black/White, New Speak, The Ministry of Truth.....
All these things come directly from the pages of the classic novel 1984.
It is not Socialism, however, which is doing these things but corporations and media moguls.
And this should not surprise anyone because all these things are about controlling people's thinking.
Even the ever-present video cameras echo the novel.
But because the villain in the novel is EngSoc (English Socialism) the left-wing (their political opponents) get the blame.
I believe that these techniques have been deliberately appropriated by our corporate masters to control public opinion.
They employ people who deal in perceptions and conspire with evil forces in our entertainment.
And look how well it's working!
