“All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”…George Orwell, “Animal Farm” 


“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“History has taught you nothing if you think you can kill ideas. Tyrants have tried to do that before, and the ideas have risen up in their might and destroyed them. You can burn my books and the books of the best minds in Europe, but the ideas in them have seeped through a million channels and will continue to quicken other minds.”…Helen Keller

Today, June 25, 2012, is George Orwell’s , Eric Blair, birthday. I attempted to go to a Orwell site with the text of “1984” that I have visited before and received this warning:

From Citizen Wells June 25, 2011.

One of the highest honors I ever received was when the Post & Email placed the photo of George Orwell in the article they did on the Citizen Wells blog on May 25, 2010. I am also honored to present the following on George Orwell and 1984.

From The Complete works of George Orwell.

“Eric Blair was born in 1903 in Motihari, Bengal, in the then British colony of India, where his father, Richard, worked for the Opium Department of the Civil Service. His mother, Ida, brought him to England at the age of one. He did not see his father again until 1907, when Richard visited England for three months before leaving again until 1912. Eric had an older sister named Marjorie and a younger sister named Avril. With his characteristic humour, he would later describe his family’s background as “lower-upper-middle class.” “

“In 1944 Orwell finished his anti-Stalinist allegory Animal Farm, which was published the following year with great critical and popular success. The royalties from Animal Farm provided Orwell with a comfortable income for the first time in his adult life. From 1945 Orwell was the Observer’s war correspondent and later contributed regularly to the Manchester Evening News. He was a close friend of the Observer’s editor/owner, David Astor and his ideas had a strong influence on Astor’s editorial policies. In 1949 his best-known work, the dystopian Nineteen Eighty-Four, was published. He wrote the novel during his stay on the island of Jura, off the coast of Scotland.”

“During most of his career Orwell was best known for his journalism, both in the British press and in books of reportage such as Homage to Catalonia (describing his experiences during the Spanish Civil War), Down and Out in Paris and London (describing a period of poverty in these cities), and The Road to Wigan Pier (which described the living conditions of poor miners in northern England). According to Newsweek, Orwell “was the finest journalist of his day and the foremost architect of the English essay since Hazlitt.”

Contemporary readers are more often introduced to Orwell as a novelist, particularly through his enormously successful titles Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. The former is considered an allegory of the corruption of the socialist ideals of the Russian Revolution by Stalinism, and the latter is Orwell’s prophetic vision of the results of totalitarianism. Orwell denied that Animal Farm was a reference to Stalinism. Orwell had returned from Catalonia a staunch anti-Stalinist and anti-Communist, but he remained to the end a man of the left and, in his own words, a ‘democratic socialist’.

Orwell is also known for his insights about the political implications of the use of language. In the essay “Politics and the English Language”, he decries the effects of cliche, bureaucratic euphemism, and academic jargon on literary styles, and ultimately on thought itself. Orwell’s concern over the power of language to shape reality is also reflected in his invention of Newspeak, the official language of the imaginary country of Oceania in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Newspeak is a variant of English in which vocabulary is strictly limited by government fiat. The goal is to make it increasingly difficult to express ideas that contradict the official line – with the final aim of making it impossible even to conceive such ideas. (cf. Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis). A number of words and phrases that Orwell coined in Nineteen Eighty-Four have entered the standard vocabularly, such as “memory hole,” “Big Brother,” “Room 101,” “doublethink,” “thought police,” and “newspeak.” ”

Some of my favorite “1984″ quotes.

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”

“The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.
And since the party is in full control of all records, and in
equally full control of the minds of it’s members, it follows
that the past is whatever the party chooses to make it. Six
means eighteen, two plus two equals five, war is peace,
freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.”

“If the party could thrust its hand into the past and say
of this and that event, it never happened–that, surely,
was more terrifying than mere torture and death.”

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”

“As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any partiucular number of the Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in it’s stead. This process of continuation alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound tracks, cartoons, photographs–to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”

“We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.”

THANK GOD FOR THE LIFE OF GEORGE ORWELL.

  1. Happy Birthday George….wherever you are.

    Watching the democrats try to spin their way out of Fast and Furious, and the congressional investigation, is truly Orwellian.

    They were caught “red handed” breaking the law, and covering it up, now they are trying to tell the American people, “there is nothing to see, move along, and don’t believe your lying eyes”.

    These socialist democrats have no shame, and they think the American people will believe what ever they are told. Those days are over.

  9. No health care ruling today!

    And the Arizona ruling is split but upholding the ability to check immigrants’ papers and thus status. If you’re pulled over for something else they CAN check your immigration status.

  10. its a NO on the Supreme Court Ruling on health care for today…gotta wait till probably thursday

  11. Allen West for Vice President!

  12. With this Egypt election of the Muslim Brotherhood, I wouldn’t put it past this regime here to arm the MB in order to get the military out of real control of things. That’s in order to complete the real mission of surrounding Israel, isolating them for the big showdown….and Israel won’t have anyone coming to their defense. Obama needs such a world crisis at this time.

  16. The Supreme Court issues split verdict on Arizona’s controversial immigration law, upholding some parts, rejecting others.

    [Updated at 10:26 a.m. ET] The Court ruled largely in favor of the U.S. government, striking down three parts of the Arizona immigration law, but the Court did uphold one the most notorious provisions: A requirement that local police officers check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws if “reasonable suspicion” exists that the person is in the United States illegally.

    The question now is can that single provision stand on its own, or does the court action mean Arizona has to go back to the drawing board on their immigration law.

    [Updated at 10:23 a.m. ET] CNN’s David Gergen weighs in on the Arizona immigration ruling:
    “The court apparently has said, ‘No, you can’t do that.’ Those are centralized powers and you can’t step in.”

    [Updated at 10:18 a.m. ET] The Supreme Court has issued 5-3 decision in favor of U.S. government, with Justice Kennedy saying that the government has significant power to regulate immigration and while Arizona may have signifacnt frustrations they may not have policies that undermine federal law.

    This is a win for the federal government and a loss for Arizona.

    Well, if he had the opportunity I’m afraid all he’d get would be a phony one or some kind of “Executive Privilege” pronouncement. Then the Sheriff would be ordered to be arrested by the Secret Service for possible ill intentions towards the creep in chief!! So far….”it’s good to be the king”!!

    SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
    Syllabus
    ARIZONA ET AL. v. UNITED STATES
    CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT

  23. Looks like Arizona can arrest/hold those they find without papers when they check them within another reason for pulling them over, BUT then the Feds are free not to enforce sending them out of country after such findings. Looks like only way to help the border states to do the work the Feds aren’t doing is to get regime change….or to get congress to challenge the Feds for failing to uphold the law under the Constitution. Keeping the illegals out by the States would have damaged Obama’s desire to clear the way for more illegals and get their votes. Due to this regime’s abuse of power we’re a nation not of laws!

  24. “ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW RULING: SUPREME COURT DELIVERED SPLIT RULING”

    Mike Sacks
    June 25, 2012 10:19 am
    Updated: 06/25/2012 10:46 am

    “WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday delivered a split decision in the Obama administration’s challenge to Arizona’s aggressive immigration law, striking multiple provisions but upholding the “papers please” provision. Civil rights groups argue the latter measure, a centerpiece of S.B. 1070, invites racial profiling.

    Monday’s decision on “papers please” rested on the more technical issue of whether the law unconstitutionally invaded the federal government’s exclusive prerogative to set immigration policy. The justices found that it was not clear whether Arizona was supplanting or supporting federal policy by requiring state law enforcement to demand immigration papers from anyone stopped, detained or arrested in the state who officers reasonably suspect is in the country without authorization. The provision that was upheld — at least for now — also commands police to check all arrestees’ immigration status with the federal government before they are released.”

    […]

    “Justice Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito each wrote separately, concurring in part and dissenting in part.

    Noting that he would have upheld the state law in its entirety, Scalia wrote, “Arizona has moved to protect its sovereignty — not in contradiction of federal law, but in complete compliance with it. The laws under challenge here do not extend or revise federal immigration restrictions, but merely enforce those restrictions more effectively. If securing its territory in this fashion is not within the power of Arizona, we should cease referring to it as a sovereign State.”
