Discerning Truth in a Hux-Orwellian World.

We've never had so many options to choose from. Yet, despite the hundreds of cable channels, 24/7 "news", countless magazines, and the availability of the Internet, etc., the average person is less informed than ever before. Why is this the case? Well, for one, the choices aren't real; it's an illusion of choice.   Why? Because all of these choices are controlled by five or six ginormous multinational corporations that put out the same propaganda in slightly different packages.  All style and no substance.

There is an all-out effort to change the meanings of words, if not eliminate certain words entirely...or create new ones to facilitate the political/capitalist/corporate agenda. The broadcast-controllers subtly, or not so subtly, rework the definition of a word, until it means the exact opposite of its original meaning.
“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.” -George Orwell
Demonizing a word is another tactic of our Orwellian leadership, because it very effectively shuts down further exploration of issues and/or controversial subjects.

Take the word, conspiracy, for example. This effort to equate the word conspiracy with lunacy can be traced back at least as far as the JFK assassination, maybe even further. The definition of conspiracy is: an agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act. Uh...hello? This isn't happening in the highest corridors of the power structure that leads us astray? Must not be, if people's reactions to this despised word are any indication.

Nope. Despite the fact that 90% of our politicians are playing the game exclusively to line their pockets and secure their personal future. And it's almost always at the expense of these very same people, who look at you as if they want to set you on a fast-track to a lobotomy, for daring to suggest that the power-hungry, greedy leaders may be, indeed, conspiring. Yet, at the same time, most people will readily admit that the power elite are plundering the till with impunity.

Okay, so all of these politicians, world leaders, corporate leaders and banksters...they all act completely alone, without consulting with anyone else?  And it's all just one big coincidence that these independently acting individuals produce results that are excessively advantageous to one infinitesimally small group of people, time after time?  It would seem to me that the near-clockwork precision of a very well organized group would be required to achieve what appears to be near perfect results. If you doubt it, just compare and contrast their ever-growing wealth and power to that of the average American citizen.

Not only do they control the money, they control the language, which is the ultimate control of other people's thoughts.  When you combine the  manipulation of our language, and the suppression and twisting of information , with total control of the money supply, it ensures a constant state of mass confusion necessary to create a Hux-Orwellian world where war is peace. Ignorance is strength, and freedom is slavery.

This is Orwell's world.  Although the Huxley carrot is still dangling - here in the United States, anyway - the Orwellian stick is becoming more prominent every day. The over-abundant trinkets, trivia, and encouragement of mindless consumption serve to divert our attention away from the colossal surveillance society that is manifesting right before our distracted eyes.

In a nutshell, 2 + 2 no longer = 4. It's the annihilation of an objective reality through the alteration of everyday thought and language.
