Doublethink


Before I sleep. A friend once used to point things out to me and as I saw what he pointed out it became apparent that the WORLD is full of reporters named ‘Winston.’

There was a meme once circulating that needed no caption. It was of a cameraman panning to catch footage and an image of a TV. What the camera aimed at LOOKED real and WAS real BUT it was not actually what was going on. If anyone has that meme stashed somewhere please post it here. It was on several long-term friends pages.

Essentially, what is happening is effective division of humanity into groups that hate each other. A half a truth is a whole lie…

…unless you work for the major media outlets. Mujaheddin are our best buddies…Taliban are our worst enemies and now some of the Taliban are friends again because of ISIS…that is now being called ISIL and really the main thing is that very soon even real history will be changed if it has not been already.

I was thinking of writing for a certain group, (not the group I write for now), and I could make some money but I also immediately saw how my skills could be put to good use making me a ‘Winston.’

Those of us who are writers need to be very careful because (I know it’s true about me) we can be easily influenced to create awesome works of verbal art that MAKE people go out and do stuff. Ask people in the music industry who have been sued because a kid committed suicide because of the song like ‘Suicide Solution.’ (That is only ONE example among many.) These are the BLATANT examples but the ones that are far more insidious are the well-crafted and believable ones.

“As he exercises, Winston thinks about his childhood, which he barely remembers. Having no physical records such as photographs and documents, he thinks, makes one’s life lose its outline in one’s memory. Winston considers Oceania’s relationship to the other countries in the world, Eurasia and Eastasia. According to official history, Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia, but Winston knows that the records have been changed. Winston remembers that no one had heard of Big Brother, the leader of the Party, before 1960, but stories about him now appear in histories going back to the 1930s.” (http://www.sparknotes.com)

This was written as a fiction by an man who was dying and yet this is what the world is morphing into right now. If you think you cannot be controlled by ad’s and suggestions and half truths you are asleep. There was a word used in the fiction called ‘double-think.’

“To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself – that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word ‘doublethink’ involved the use of doublethink.” (Wiki quoting George Orwell)

This idea is the ONLY way that mass numbers of people can be numbed to sleep while the world slides into the abyss of ‘two minutes hate.’

There is even a group called ‘Anonymous’ that in analogous to the idea of a ‘secret underground’ and the real real possibility that there is nothing, now, left in the Earth (with very few exceptions) that is NOT planned or orchestrated.

I am thinking this even as I write these words. I am also a part of the orchestra, like it or not, and so is everyone here at Facebook. I am spending precious time typing this when I should already be sleeping. I have to do this because it is so important that even ONE person besides me can know what is possible.

Goodnight Facebookia…”You can check out any time you like…but you can never leave.” (Eagles)
