We no longer have an institutionalised & clearly defined priesthood & moral authority, as we did in the past, but it still remains a very powerful force & is encapsulated well in #GeorgeOrwell's idea of #BigBrother.
Big Brother is far more subtle than portrayed in Orwell's 1984. He deceives us into loving him by posing as our nation & as a moral authority. Anti-fascists & anti-racists (including everyone in a position of influence & power) are all unwitting minions of Big Brother.

As a voter looking for real news, it is insulting that any media outlet would report gossip that is as salacious as is this from former administration officials and then keep it off the record #FoxNews #Gossip
She began tweeting this gossip out furiously and it seems to me like a former official contacted her.
Look how easy it is to slander, behind a veil.

According to Wikipedia, "#Britishness [i.e. British identity] is the state or quality of being British or of embodying British characteristics. It comprises the claimed qualities that bind and distinguish the British people and form the basis of their unity and identity."
According to me, British identity is an Orwellian construct based on lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.

To identify with Britain as one's nation is to identify with, i.e. to love, #BigBrother.

Britain is a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation.
This is how Big Brother disguises & legitimises himself, his minions in the British establishment, & the immense power they wield & abuse. He is far more subtle than as portrayed by #GeorgeOrwell in 1984.

DIVERSITY is Orwellian newspeak for #RacialMixing (social & biological) or #MeltingPot.

It is an extreme & pathological overreaction to Nazi racial ideology of #RacialPurity & supremacy, which now serves western elites as an instrument of socio-political intimidation & control. Image
It is a continuation of the madness that began with WW1 &, if allowed to continue, will result in the complete destruction of western civilisation.
On reflection, I don't think it is true to say that the madness began with WW1.

The madness is inherent to civilisation itself. WW1 was just an especially grotesque manifestation of it.

The most terrible thing is that we didn't learn from it.

'Nineteen Eighty-Four' was published #onthisday in 1949. In 2017 @TheOrwellPrize read the novel live, dramatised by @HannahPrice, with 50 guest readers including @DavidOlusoga, @ETemelkuran, @simon_schama, @Bonn1eGreer and many more. It took 11 hours:
The entire reading is on YouTube and our website, for anyone that wants to dip in:

It was in May 2019 that I decided to re-read #1984. I was feeling the wrath of #technofascism.

I would listen to it on audible while walking the hills of magical #beachwood.

These haunting passages resonated the most.
"1984" by George Orwell

"The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became truth."
"When there were no external records that you could refer to, even the outline of your own life lost its sharpness."

#GeorgeOrwell wrote 1984 (pub. 1949) under the strong influence of recently defeated fascism & still rampant Soviet communism. He could hardly have imagined how #BigBrother would embrace #LiberalDemocracy, #AntiFascism & #AntiRacism in the West, but this is what happened.
Jonah Goldberg, @JonahDispatch, in his book #LiberalFascism, goes some way towards recognising the fascist origins of progressivism (or should I say, the progressive aspects of fascism?), but not nearly far enough. The Orwellian nature of DIVERSITY goes unmentioned.
Big Brother imposed the madness of mass immigration & the ideology of post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY on the West as an instrument of socio-political intimidation & control. The ideology goes to the opposite, but equally insane, extremes of Nazi racial ideology. Image

Hilo sobre películas vistas en #EstadoDeAlarma
Estamos ante una oportunidad. Teniendo como tengo un adolescente en casa que mejor forma que pasar el tiempo con él viendo cine del bueno. #Cine, cine, cine, más cine por favor que cantaba #Aute #CineEnCasa empezamos:

#ElGuateque Genial Peter Sellers, genial Blake Edwards. Dicen que ellos acabaron fatal después de hacerla, pero viéndola no se nota. Nos hemos reído sin parar. No se cuantas veces la habrá visto Mr. Bean. Rowan Atkinson copia hasta los ticks... Image
Día 2

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇)…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

«La guerra es la paz
La libertad es la esclavitud
La ignorancia es la fuerza»

El 8 de junio de 1949, hace hoy 70 años, vio la luz «1984», la feroz y atinada crítica de #GeorgeOrwell de la vigilancia y la represión ubicuas de los regímenes totalitarios.…
Tanto tiempo después, dice @minipetite en #ElEnemigoConoceElSistema (…), que publicamos el jueves:

«Tecnológicamente, hoy el mundo se parece más a 1984 que nunca. A diferencia de la radio y la televisión, la telepantalla podía ver y escuchar lo que pasaba…
…a su alrededor a través de un monitor de vídeo conectado a la Policía del Pensamiento. Pero cada época tiene su propio fascismo, y el nuestro difiere en muchos aspectos del que describe Orwell en los cuarenta, al menos en el mundo occidental.…

@fernandokrammer depois do silêncio adotado ao observar que NÃO foi nada inteligente apoiar o #Golpe feito na democracia #brasileira, é incoerente se acovardar diante as manobras direcionadas nos diferentes sistemas
