George Orwell's books were not meant to be how-to guides. They were how-NOT-to guides. This passage was not meant to teach people what to do...
"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
But they're doing it. Wiping out history with the toppling of each statue and the banning of each book. The media is rewriting history as it happens. Sometimes, they're writing it ahead of time to make it happen the way they want to. And all of this is marching toward one goal: control for 'the party'.
And for those who weren't paying attention, the pigs in Animal Farm were THE BAD GUYS. But I suspect the little, goose-stepping assholes will be rewriting or banning or burning that book soon.
Yep, the world has gone fucking nuts. If you can't see this or you're okay with this, then I can't help you. More's the pity for us all.
Welcome to mid-2020. I hope you buckled up early, because the ride doesn't stop and you won't be allowed to get off any time soon.
You've said it better than I ever could! I'm locked and loaded, and hunkered down. I'll add a quote that is also very apropos:ReplyDelete
One cannot and must not try to erase the past merely because it does not fit the present. ~Golda Meir
Hang in there and lets hope cooler and more intelligent heads prevail. *HUGS*
