Covid-1984: The Worst Of Both Worlds

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2020 by jtoddring

With covid-1984, which is a virus that is statistically as dangerous as the common flu, we have taken extreme, draconian, authoritarian measures. In short, we have dangerously and vastly over-reacted, and in doing so, we have combined the worst of both worlds: medieval and modern.

If we’re going to go medieval, let’s do it intelligently, at least. We can have freedom, democracy, constitutional rights, plus culture & charm. Instead, we have a gulag and police state, corporate monoculture, and the Inquisition. Brilliant.

So, we’re taking the worst of the medieval period, and combining it with the worst of the modern period. Isn’t that kind of backward from what any sane person should want? I’d say so.

Time for a change.

Welcome To The Brave New World

Speaking of censorious scrupulosity….

While censorship is rising rapidly, with Google, Facebook and Twitter, as well as the major media, controlling and restricting what people can see or read, say or share; Facebook is now blocking me from posting my own essays from my blog to my Farcebook page. Welcome to the Brave New World. The global police state has truly arrived.

Follow my blog if you want to stay informed. Big Tech is now squarely in the business of surveillance, social engineering, censorship and social control.

Time to re-read 1984, Brave New World, and Brave New World Revisited, We, A Handmaid’s Tale, and Iron Heel – and Erich Fromm’s, Escape From Freedom, as well. It’s happening now. It’s here.
