Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government. And permanent crises (in the form of the Cornavirus) is what we have to expect in a world in which over population (change that to – continued virus outbreaks) is producing a state of things, in which dictatorship under Communist (or Socialist) auspices becomes almost inevitable. Aldous Huxley “Brave New World” – 1932.
Picture a group of teenagers. Any where. At the mall, at the coffee store, at the movies….. they all have their heads buried in their phones. Texting, posting to Instagram, checking status on Twitter.
“1984”, a book by George Orwell, was written in 1949. NINETEEN FORTY NINE!! 1949!!!!!
And I quote, “The people will not revolt. They will not look up from their screens long enough to notice what’s happening”.
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.
