To Orwell Today,

This was in a newsletter I get:

"The ideal setup by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering - a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons - a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting - three hundred million people all with the same face." - George Orwell, from the book 1984

It immediately made me think of this one:

"We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man, we got a kinder, gentler machine gun hand." - Neil Young from the song Rockin' In The Free World


PS - Didn't get a comment from you about the "Orwell Rolls in His Grave" DVD.

Greetings Gene,

That Orwell quote in its fuller context is found in theme 11.Ministry of Plenty (which really means starvation of course).

All the best,
Jackie Jura

PS - Thanks a million for the DVD which was in the mailbox when I checked the other day, and which I've partially watched. It makes some valid points although it's a bit too "Michael Moorish" for me. I can't stand that guy. See STUPID WHITE MEN NOT.

From what I've watched so far of ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE its thesis is similar to other such productions which - although correctly laying blame on multi-national corporations for Orwellian tyranny - incorrectly make "capitalism" the culprit and never "communism", and never mention Red China or Red Russia as culprits practising this CORPORATE COMMUNISM but instead lay the blame entirely on the USA as the home base of these corporate giants when in fact the CEOs are internationalists who have no allegiance to America. Orwell didn't blame the UK or America and the rest of Oceania for Big Brother and its Pyramidal New World Order. He blamed The Brotherhood, whose members exist in every nation, secretly conspiring to "destroy the societies in which they live".
