It seems to me, we are well on our way to world socialism. Socialists, Progressives and Marxists believe there are two possibilities for the evolution of the socialist world state. The first, and the one they openly avow, is the Brave New World, the second, the one they know in their hearts will happen, is 1984. Of course neither scenario is rosy, both involve coercion of individuals for the benefit of the “society.” The new class worship at the alter of Marx, whether they are progressives, socialists or outright Marxists. They cannot imagine a future where people are free, prosperous and peaceful. Such a future is far too boring for them. The new class shows their presumption of a dark future in their dystopian science fiction movies, books and articles. Even as they seek an interesting future, it is up to us to fight that exciting future, and instead replace it with a boring one, for the sake of our children and their children.
The reason progressives, socialists and Marxists pay lip service to the brave new world is the assumed economic prosperity of that system. The brave new world is one where consumption is a sacrament. Society is broken up into several classes, where most are intentionally retarded as babies to ensure they stay in their place. Others, the alphas, run the show but are controlled by use of physical pleasure and the constant threat of exile, keeping them in line. In the brave new world, all thought is reduced to absurdly simple jingles, love is against the law, consumption is a religion, the family is a historic oddity, and instead of being for procreation… sex is merely for recreation.
The new class claims the brave new world is the most likely, because at first glance it appears to be the least scary, while 1984 is so dark even the most ardent Marxist shudders at the thought. In 1984, love is outlawed, thought is controlled, the state is in perpetual war, the family is illegal, people are monitored in their own homes and philosophy is reduced to newspeak. In one version of the the movie 1984, when the hero and heroin are caught in a love affair, a disembodied voice commands them to stand back to back, and as a helicopter approaches, the voice says, “Here comes a candle to light up your bed, here comes a chopper to chop off your head,” as storm troopers break in and arrest them. All reason has been reduced to ridiculous newspeak, where opposites are connected like, war is peace, and freedom is slavery.
Every time socialism has been tried it has followed the 1984 path instead of the brave new world. Even if the brave new world paradigm could happen it is every bit as dark as 1984. They both have a great deal of commonality. We see the seeds of both being planted today. The surveillance state is growing around the world, to the point where you are even monitored in your own home if you have a smart television, the family is under attack by the state, our education system dumbs down our children to the point they only respond to five second jingles, the world is in perpetual war, we are manipulated by our emotions, sex is held up as the ultimate recreation, newspeak is more and more common from our leaders, and the new class are defacto alphas.
As we watch our world descend into a darkness there is something we can do. We can fight the mind control that tells us that only a new class progressive can win an election, vote our principles instead of our pocketbooks, argue against the need for a surveillance state, refuse to fall for the trap of hate even as those who’s hearts are full of hate claim to be inclusive, protect our constitution at all costs and remain true to liberty… which is the penicillin for the brave new world and 1984. Most of all, we must think with our minds and not with our hearts. Our hearts can be manipulated easily by jingles, calls to emotion and five second sound bites, but our minds require information not mere rimes.
Yes, even a cursory glance at the state of the world today, shows that we are well on our way to 1984. The brave new world might be the goal for our new class alphas but the difference is so small it is insignificant. Humanity, in both scenarios is gone, and people are reduced to expendable automatons, that are as thoughtless as they are vile. To achieve the goal of 1984, or the brave new world would be a catastrophe for the human race, and would usher in a new dark age, far darker and more violent than anything you or I could imagine. The test for us, is if the new class has so perverted us, we are now incapable of withstanding the dystopian future they have in mind for the human race, or do we stand up and push back. Our children’s fate is in our hands. Please God, may we not let them down!
