We are entering an Orwellian world. In 1947 George Orwell wrote of a future time. He called it "1984". There was no history that wasn't subject to revision. Language devolved. Meanings of words changed. Everyone was watched. Lies were used to create hate. Human love was considered weakness. Sex was a criminal act.
I am seeing this work of fiction becoming reality. No, not the reality of TV, but the reality of everyday living. Free thought will eventually be a criminal act. Big Brother Trump will decide who lives or dies. We are going to live with fear.
If Trump tweets you are "wrong" his minions will make sure you are going to suffer. They will kill your pets. They will burn down you house. They will kill your loved ones just to see you suffer. Then as a final act they will serve up your head on a stake in celebration.
Big Brother Trump will smile upon them as they carry out his revenge for you questioning his decision or character.
Double speak has started with the word "bigly". Welcome to "1984" Orwellian world coming your way January 17, 2017.
I strongly suggest you read the book "1984" soon. It will be your survival guide to the next decade.
This year the Democratic party lost me. I had left the Republican party behind decades ago.
My love of country still exists but respect for our leaders does not exist.
Desparate times create desparate men, men who see nothing left of their future, who see the tyranny around them. I see these times as an opportunity. Time for action. Time for a new militancy. I remember the Black Panthers. I remember the America Indian Movement. The Weather Underground. The Monkey Wrench Gang. Sometimes the people rise up. Anytime you can make those in power understand fear it is good.
I see a time coming. As capitalism kills the planet people will get angry. The next revolution will start with the act of the individual. There will not be any warning. But that one act will provide the spark for the next, and the next, until the fire has started. I may not be around to see this happen. I am getting old. But be assured, the day will come when the rich and powerful will discover fear.
The flame of freedom and justice burns within. It cannot be extinguished. We are entering the years of suffering as the Antichrist takes control. But righteousness and faith and a belief in a better world will drive some to resist and eventually prevail.
Data mining is happening all around us. Use a cell phone? Every call is logged and your location is tracked. Got an Android phone? Google is tracking you. Every purchase you make with a check, ATM card or credit card is tracked in real time. Video is everywhere. Licence plate readers are on most police cars. They can read plate numbers at 60 mph or faster. Your emails are tracked. Everything you look at online is tracked. I clean tracking cookies from my computer every other day. On average I find 20 or more each time. Ever wonder why some advertising seems to follow you? You've been profiled. Do you realize that facial recognition software is being used everywhere? Every search you make is part of that profiling. Government does it. Credit agencies do it. Stores do it. Even theives do it. Identity theft allows thieves to become you. Profiling can be used to blackmail you. Profiling can be used to frame you. Profiling and data mining can be used to destroy you.
An example. As I was stopped at an immigration checkpoint they brought out the drug dig to inspect my truck. I asked why. The young officer said it was because my truck was registered in an area known for drugs. After I objected they called off the dog. I spoke to the supervisor who said the young officer had not Saud what he said. He said that was not why. He said it was my appearance that triggered the response ( I had a full beard and long hair at the time). He did admit they had ran my licence plate as i drove up.
Remember. You are being watched. You are being profiled. Know your rights. If you have a dash cam use it.
About the alt right... its best to call them what they are. The Associated Press has said this...
"...Avoid using the term generically and without definition, however, because it is not well known and the term may exist primarily as a public-relations device to make its supporters’ actual beliefs less clear and more acceptable to a broader audience. In the past we have called such beliefs racist, neo-Nazi or white supremacist."
