"All animals are equal"
ORWELL'S DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM
"government of the people, by the people, for the people"
Orwell's idea of Utopia was "Democratic Socialism" which he described in 1984 as:
"a society in which all men shall be equal...a society in which wealth, in the sense of personal possessions and luxuries, should be evenly distributed.... an earthly paradise in which men should live together in a state of brotherhood, without laws and without brute labour... where everyone worked short hours, had enough to eat, lived in a house with a bathroom and a refrigerator, and possessed a motor-car or even an airoplane..."
"As early as the beginning of the 20th century, human equality had become technically possible ...there was no longer any real need for class distinctions or for large differences of wealth... With the development of machine production, the need for human drudgery, and therefore to a great extent for human inequality, had disappeared... It was no longer necessary for human beings to live at different social or economic levels... If the machines were used properly toward that end, hunger, overwork, dirt, illiteracy, and disease could be eliminated within a few generations."
Orwell observed that:
"The machine WAS used for that purpose over a period of about fifty years at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, and it raised the living standards of the average human being very greatly."
"But", as Orwell goes on to say, it was clear to the "High" that:
"An all-round increase in wealth meant the destruction of a hierarchical society... for if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society - with the High, the Middle and the Low - was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance."
Therefore "the earthly paradise was discredited at exactly the moment when it became realized".
And what emerged was "Big Brother", or One World Government, under which the three super-states existed - "Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia", aka America, Europe and Asia or the United States, Russia & China. They all adopted the same systems wherein "the conditions of life in all three super-states are very much the same...all the main currents of political thought were totalitarian".
Their rulers would stay in power forever by keeping their masses down and governing with "hierarchy and regimentation...with the conscious aim of perpetuating unfreedom and inequality...made possible, finally, by the power to keep their citizens under constant surveillance".
All the best,
GADDAFI: RECOLLECTIONS OF MY LIFE (...No, no matter what I did, it was never enough for some, but for others, they knew I was the son of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we've had since Salah'a'Deen, when he claimed the Suez Canal for his people, as I claimed Libya, for my people. It was his footsteps I tried to follow, to keep my people free from colonial domination -- from thieves who would steal from us... Now, I am under attack by the biggest force in military history. My little African son, Obama, wants to kill me, to take away the freedom of our country, to take away our free housing, our free medicine, our free education, our free food, and replace it with American style thievery, called "capitalism". But all of us in the Third World know what that means, it means corporations run the countries, run the world, and the people suffer. So, there is no alternative for me, I must make my stand, and if Allah wishes, I shall die by following his path, the path that has made our country rich with farmland, with food and health, and even allowed us to help our African and Arab brothers and sisters to work here with us, in the Libyan Jammohouriyah....
THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS - "We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." ~ Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. -- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." ~ Thomas Jefferson, July 4, 1776
