One thing that I find interesting, is when reference to 1984 is meant to be exactly like the book. A true antagonist would tell you that only the core concepts need be followed. Change in attitudes towards other countries and belief systems, crowd and population control, surveillance of the populace, and the criminalization of and desensitization to most things. This “creeping” effect is what is dangerous and can get someone to their ultimate goal of total power.
It’s a shame, says Shawn Byrd, that this is happening. Ask those from other countries that had to fight for their freedom, they will tell you how precious and important it is. Most citizens here don’t know jack, and they are perfectly content to keep their head in the sand. Vernacular, love it!
This is not a rant or crazy idea post, but a heads-up on how ignorant of the past are too many people.
Look at history, look at the greed of others, look at how irrational behavior gets in levels of power that can control your every move. Think.
