|Welcome to the future of humankind!
To quote from Orwell's 1984, 'How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?'
Winston thought. 'By making him suffer,' he said.
'Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough.
Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own?
Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.
Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating?
It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery is torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself.
Progress in our world will be progress towards more pain. The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred. In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. Everything else we shall destroy everything. Already we are breaking down the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution. We have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and woman.
No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer.
But in the future there will be no wives and no friends. Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. The sex instinct will be eradicated.
Procreation will be an annual formality like the renewal of a ration card. We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now.
There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. When we are omnipotent we shall have no more need of science.
There will be no distinction between beauty and ugliness. There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always -- do not forget this, Winston -- always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face -- for ever.'
CONSIDER THIS DEEPLY WHEN YOU WATCH CNN AND HEAR STORIES OF PREISTS (MEN OF GOD) IN NEW MEXICO HOLDING 'HARRY POTTER' BOOK BURNINGS AND WHEN YOU SEE MEN AT THE LIQUOR STORE IN YOUR TOWN BREAKING EACH OTHERS FACES BECAUSE OF MEDIA INDUCED PARANOIA, THINK ABOUT THE WORDS OF THIS SOCIAL PROPHET WHEN YOU LOOK WITH WONDER ON YOUR SCREEN (GOD) AND SEE AN IMPERIALIST FIGUREHEAD SPOUTING NATIONALIST JARGON LIKE THE ROBOTIC PUPPET HE IS AND WAS ELECTED TO BE. WHEN I CLEAN THE BLOOD OF THE MEN AT THE LIQUOR STORE OFF MY SHOES, I THINK OF BROTHER GEORGE ORWELL'S IMAGE OF 'A BOOT STAMPING ON A HUMAN FACE FOREVER.' PEOPLE ARE SUCH SHEEP...
Welcome to the Future!
