Orwell was dead on the button, you know? Describing a mass surveillance, mass hysteria media state, stratified and deified by strict obedience to an artificial political dogma. A yellow ribbon stuck on the back of the ole gov'ment minivan right next to the smiling stick figure family, lobbing cruise missiles into third-world countries most couldn't find on a map. Ole George was on the right track sure enough, but time marches on doesn't it? The new technologies have moved beyond the scope of paper pulp to dimensions ole George could never have dreamed of.

What would George Orwell say about a society paying out millions from its own pockets for the privilege of watching Big Brother on their telescreens, willing to pay extra to have Big Brother available on their mobile devices, just in case. Today, Winston Smith would be a multi-million dollar TV producer. Still ruled by fear but in this case money fear; continuity is dead, content is king. The average American couldn't name most of the foreign countries where the U.S. has troops fighting, so why bother correcting Big Brother's statements at all? Just keep the shiny pretty things coming.

Full immersion brain washing, a thousand tentacles belching the word into our face, living in the word and the word is "purchase". A thousand Big Brothers, each custom made to fit, so try one on and take one out for a spin. Pundits, preachers and politicos offering the same message from different vantage points, the book what says, if you're a slave be a good slave, lives in complete agreement with neocon fascism, which says if you're a slave, it sucks to be you -- deal with it. Orwell never dreamed the Party would have to divvy up the spoils with God House incorporated.

Can you say Synergy? (Pun intended) NBC broadcasting is airing prime-time Bible features in its Sunday offering AD. Stories told from the perspective of an unquestioning, true believer. Is it art imitating crime or crime imitating art? Sunday morning preacher sermons coordinated to match the night's TV Bible teleplay; it is difficult to determine who cheapens whom more. Preaching to a zombie TV nation versus preaching to the choir and Orwell missed it. Big Brother of the sky has star power, he speaks for God you know, and God wants you" to watch TV! To save your soul and to take advantage of the many fine product offerings available for purchase.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that I (more...)
