1984 - 2021 What's the difference?

.

Inside the next six months, I plan to re-read 1984 because the 17 year old mind is not the 71 year old mind. As a writer, I'll see far more. But what violates privacy in 2021: xray scans at airports, address demanded at check-out counter, try to prove you are a usa citizen at Secretary of State, risk deportation.
.

Paranoia has led the oppressive Naziesque mutation of nations to invade every area of their citizens's lives, locations, and buying habits; all of which are possible thru high technology. Ah, microchipdom, the evolved technology of human future. Imagine post global anarchy when whole continents are left to starve.

.

As long  as the  usa military is adhering to their oaths (we recently had/are having a bit of difficulty with oath bound Presidents, Governors, and police) we are okay, right? Anybody wrote any what if a military coup d'etat in usa novels?  Oh baby! Uniforms EVERYWHERE, lots of those spiffy peacekeeper camouflaged jeep-hum Vees patroling every street, every desert, ebery vack-road. USA Citizen card check - not in the profile face scan, retuna scan, palm scan library vault? Instant arrest and when proven not a citizen, you disappear (one head shot is cheaper than getting perp back to Venuseula. 
.

Generals would govern territories, Chicago gangs gone overnight, California thieves captured anxd takem by navy to Hawaii and dropped into Kileaua. Crime would just stop, wharever your religion, after tv vids of evil-doer sacrifices by fire shown once per hour on the WWN World-Wide Network. "We interrupt yourmandared programming and indoctrination for this patriotic execution. Children are encouraged to watch."

.

Every world leader (and their reacement tyrant) defiant of usa racial (white men, of course) dominance would die from poisoning until leaders figure out there's a new sheriff in town. Every earthborn would be fed/housed, corruption at the top, all the filthy wealthy urber rich - sent to wirk in electric car plants in Detroit and Mexico (Mexico, the 51st usa state).
.

Oh hell, Africa and South America and Carribean nations have no nukes-make 'em colonies - easier to control if you put a internet linked cell phone and I-pad in every hut. abd  chip in every brain.


Any bona-fide usa citizen could walk anywhere in the world (or off it) with no risk of kidnapping, disrespect, imprisonment, or vanishing. Black and brown usa people would live like queens. The armed forces of the United States Of Earth could send canadians back to Europe and give the native tribes, innuits, and First Nations Canada, Antarctica, and Siberia. Too far away to be triuble. with surveillance by satellite - problem solved, justice done, all guilt fir attempted genpcide forgiven.

.

Those treble spiffy intracranial chips planted in, oh, everyone would solve a whole lot of fake news and conspiracy theories. Would be tyrants should and would  be publicly executed by burning at the stake - as a real deterrent. All prisons would be turned into schools or libraries. Criminally insane - medically euthanized. Book burning, of course, would be back. Marx, Lenin, Mao Zedung,  Hitler, and Fidel Castro biographies would burn first. Rand would be required reading - translated more prolifically than the little red book.

.

Hey, life and freedom is a set of compromises, negotiated or not. The new world constitution would read: All women are equal to men. No one but the military has the right to bear arms. All that environmentally safe-smelted metal from guns, tanks, and bullets can be returned to the mines created by mining. Clear skies pure water, and purged dirt would end global warming And mist diseases like cancer and the medical orofession. Oil and gas? History! Refined nuclear fissionables dumped in the cooling sun. 
.

Obedience guaranteed. Sci-fi Utopia rules! Somebody ought to write the book. How The U.S.A. Military Saved Humanity. At the grand finale, peace on earth established, an asteroid the size of Russia, pulverizes perfection.

.

Raise your fist and repeat after me: "POWER TO THE POLICE STATE!" I really gotta re-read 1984.

Special times

Special times we live in. Special times indeed. Orwell & Huxley – knew a thing or two.

Huxley

died tripping out on LSD. Way to go.

Actually, Orwell died from

Actually, Orwell died from complications of tuberculosis and the toxic effects of Streptomycin – the tuberculosis miracle drug of the time, as he was given an exceedingly high dose and did not react well to it. However, he donated the remainder of his prescription to two other tuberculosis patients, who both received a cure by it, at a much lower dose.

 

Huxley however, was deeply immersed in the psychedelic experiences of Mescaline, a derivative of the peyote cactus, which Native American peoples have been using in their religious customs for many millennia.

 

What killed Huxley, was laryngeal cancer.

 

Suffering tremendously on his deathbed and unable to speak, he gave a written request to his wife Laura – to administer a hundred micrograms of LSD. Which she did at 11:20am, and again an hour later at 12:20pm.

 

So you can most assuredly say, that he spent the last hours of his life, tripping his balls off.

 

By 5:20pm – he was dead.

 

Under those particular circumstances, for him – it was the “Way To Go”

 

And you of course, are free to judge it as you wish.

I Remember Mention

  • Of Aldus and Mescaline. I think about capital punishment: pharmaceutical companies have "sleepers" to knock out humans, or use an anesthetic - then you can shoot em and they won't feel a thing for as long. Cruelty R Us. If a choice - I'd meet death overdosed on THC. Go out munching and giggling. No judgment there I hope. Doctors do it, o.d. on sleepers (or rendered comatose) to not feel pain or feel death when she shows up. :D

Haha, I don't think that's how it's going to end. Especially when the MIC is at the heart of corporatism and all of it's malevolence.

1984 is one of, if not, my favorite book, by the way. All in, supporting any desire to re-read it!
