Do We Live in Orwell’s 1984 or Huxley’s Brave New World?
“If you have to be persuaded, reminded, bullied, pressured, incentivized, lied to, guilt-tripped, coerced, socially shamed, censored, threatened, paid, punished, and criminalized, if all of this is necessary to gain your compliance, you can be absolutely certain what is being promoted is not in your best interest.”
The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of “Men who wanted to be left Alone”. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the “Men who wanted to be left Alone” are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. This is why, when forced to take up violence, these “Men who wanted to be left Alone”, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy . . . . but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the “Men who just wanted to be left alone.”
Are we heading into an Orwellian or a Huxleyian future? Definitely there are strong Orwellian elements, but the final architecture of a future dystopia will probably be Huxleyian, because the carrot is so much more effective than the stick.
