Which Way is the Wind Blowing ?
I remember in my days in college reading the works of George Orwell and Aldus Huxley and being flabbergasted about the vivid scenes of their futurist society that were so manipulated by the political powers in order to continue their dominance of society. I was taught that not to worry about their forecast because we live in a democracy and a free and open society. Besides according to the teachers Huxley and Orwell were concerned with totalitarian like regimes such as Hitler and Stalin. However, looking at the week that just passed, I am not so sure about that for today we have a scene too reminiscent of a scene in 1984.
Beginning with the Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama declares “A Just War,” which sounds like to me “War =Peace.”
Then we have a whole slew of criticism of an insurance laden “Health Care Reform” bill, however the American Media landscape credits Obama with a win for being able to obtain 60 votes for a compromised, of a compromised, compromised bill.
Furthermore, the American media also credits Obama with orchestrating a “deal” in
-“The most progressive
and from the Friends of the Earth,
“Sham Deal Requires Nothing, Accomplishes Nothing”
The more I see of the news, the more I am tending to believe the weather man. At least he/she is right some of the times.
