George Orwell For 2020

With Michigan Governor Wretched Witless handing down from on high new draconian diktats regarding the masking of Michigan I though I would take the opportunity to note the updated potpourri of Orwellian-isms that has now been foisted upon the only people who have escaped the zombieification process.

First there is the quaint word “Quarantine.” Historically, this word referred to action taken against a ship coming into port that was suspected of carrying goods and / or crew that was infected with disease. To quarantine then was an action taken where those diseased would be locked away so as to prevent the spreading of their disease.

Quarantine now, however, has taken an additional meaning and that is “to lock away a state or nation’s citizenry from activity because a contrived danger, that has been exposed numerous times as not particularly dangerous, might give someone the sniffles in hopes that such action will swing an election in the Democrats favor.” So, “Quarantine” is now a political term alongside other colorful political terms like “gerrymander,” “hanging chads,” and “Yellow Dog Democrat.”

Enter Orwell. The term quarantine, once stripped of its Orwellian Newspeak quotient now means “house arrest.” An example of our new Orwellianism in a sentence is, “I wanted to go to the store to purchase some goods but the FEDS have me under quarantine so I can’t go out.”

Second there is the ubiquitous Orwellian mask. Until recently, going to the bank with a mask on meant that you were intended to relieve said bank of excessive funds. Masks, historically, have been used to hide behind. The ancient world used masks for their actors to hide behind in order to play a role. In the occult world mask were used to hide identity of the practitioners involved in demonic worship. A peek at Stanley Kubrick’s film, “Eyes Wide Shut” reveals that masks are still used for occultist orgy outings. Suffice it to say that historically masks have not been the stuff that a honest public minded person wanted to be associated with.

Enter Orwell. Masks now are a de rigueur fashion statement. Being without a mask in public now is worse than being without pants. “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Mask — No service.” And all this despite the fact that the medical community is telling us that masks are harmful and have absolutely no impact whatsoever on the transmission of virus. We might as well be required to go around wearing grills from 1965 Ford Mercury Comets for all the good that masks are doing us.

But, in Orwell’s world masks are serving a purpose. They serve the purpose of keeping the fear level fever pitched. As the lemmings are out wearing their 1965 Ford Mercury Comet grills what they are communicating to one another is how fearful we all are and must remain until the God State comes up with a vaccine that can deliver us from our masks. Orwell’s masks are a bridge to Orwell’s vaccines. Keep the fear porn up, by way of masks, and the lemmings will all be begging to be filled anew with formaldehyde, baby parts, monkey genes, and God only knows what else as found in the witches’ brew that we call “vaccine.”

Orwell baby, you were a piker compared to our ability today.

Next up in our Orwellianification is the slogan, “United we will get through this together.” The clever bit in this piece of propaganda is the assumption that those of us who don’t think of ourselves as “zombies” have any interest in being united with those leading the zombie parade. With the entry of Orwell what this propaganda has done has made it clear that if one disagrees with the Orwellian transmogrification of language, culture, and reality then that one is the violator of the promised success of all of us getting through this fecal narrative together. Like Jenny Geddes’ tossing her stool at Papists heads, so we, the non-zombies of the world, fling with relish our double bird helix at the idea of “United we get through this together.” We have no more interest in being united to the Karen’s of the world then we would have interest in being chained to Medusa for all eternity. Bugger your unity.

Finally, for our purposes of this essay we mention the Orwellian idea of “social distancing.” Best kept secret ever that one could be social and distant at the same time. Enter Orwell. The whole idea here is to keep people apart and so make them distrustful of one another. It is another aspect of the fear porn factor. People being distrustful of one another strengthens the State as a separated people are less able to stand together against the machinations of the tyrant state.

Who knows where Orwell will enter next with his doublespeak? We do know that those who are not suspicious of anything that comes out of the vile, disingenuous, and serpent-tongued mouth of the elite Corporate-Media complex is not to be trusted. Believing the FEDS, or their Corporate-Media lapdogs is a sure recipe to become a zombie who can’t get enough of Orwell’s doublespeak.
