    Great article on George Orwell's 1984

    Orwell's book 1984 was specifically written with socialism in mind. What he describes in it is typical socialist government behavior. The Epoch Times has a great article on the book tying it to what we see coming out of the political left every day. No wonder the NYT is writing hit pieces on the Epoch Times.

    George Orwell wrote that through alterating the past, and by portraying any remembered history as evil, socialist regimes could render classic texts such as the U.S. Declaration of Independence incomprehensible in their original context. People then would be incapable of understanding the original intentions behind them.


    And as if to demonstrate how close today’s society has come to what Orwell warned of, the Declaration of Independence has been framed just like this today. Under the new idea of “hate speech,” the censors at Facebook flagged the Declaration of Independence as containing offensive language.

    "George Orwell wrote that through alterating the past, and by portraying any remembered history as evil, socialist regimes could render classic texts such as the U.S. Declaration of Independence incomprehensible in their original context.

    "And as if to demonstrate how close today’s society has come to what Orwell warned of, the Declaration of Independence has been framed just like this today. Under the new idea of “hate speech,” the censors at Facebook flagged the Declaration of Independence as containing offensive language."

    The political Left, from Marxism, is allied with what is called Globalism, which is the rule of an elite rather than the rule of a Constitutional Republic, which is designed in our Declaration of Independence and in our Bill of Rights.

    But now, Boris Johnson, probably backed up by Nigel Farage, Leader of the Brexit Party, asked the Queen to suspend Parliament, which will shorten the amount of time Members of Parliament have to block a no-deal Brexit move before the current deadline. Johnson has said Britain will leave the EU on October 31, with or without a deal.

    This all looks like a restoration of British type Constitutional government and restoration of the sovereignty of England, and its nationalism, with Johnson allied with Trump. If it goes through, the Marxist Left, which supports the European Union, as a step to totalitarian world government, will lose.

    If the Left loses power in England, it may also lose its ability to bring in hordes of Islamics into England. And maybe Tommy Robinson will be released from prison.

    The U.S. needs a stronger England, without its Leftist bent, to stand against Chinese Communist aggression in Hong Kong.

    As long as you allow these people to redefine the language they will always control the situation. It is one of their most successful tools. The enemies of liberalism have the entire world calling them liberals. To keep allowing them to do this type of stuff is support their claims.
