Orwell’s book 1984 was meant as a warning and not as an instruction!
Disasters usually come with advance notification. Not even earthquakes come with nobody having a remote idea that they would happen. So we see the signs in advance and we choose to ignore them.
Many disasters start with a minor lapse and those responsible choose to softest and least effective means to fight it, but it will be too little. And while the issue is growing the first means are loosing their edge. The issue becomes a problem and again those responsible choose the softest, least effective means and as they don’t cure the problem, these means which might have been strong enough to cure the issue, now fail to fix the problem. They’ve lost their edge…. next escalation step, next round of means loosing their edge and we are well on our way to a full blown disaster. No matter if whether we talk about an industrial disaster, a social disaster or a natural disaster, where we didn’t use the time since its last occurance to prepare for its next occurance.
What we see here is an Orwellian system comming from within the middle of the flock.It’s not comming from the top. They later may choose a great leader – a GröFaZ (Größter Führer aller Zeiten – Greatest Leader of all Times), but in fact, the flock is the main perpetrator mainly driven by their ignorance and circling in a vortex around themselves and their idiotic save spaces. From they create a new value system that will become the basis for a new particular moral and this particular moral and the resulting ethics say cleary:
– Thy shalt not say what you think
– Thy shalt not even think what the flock and the leader don’t like
and from there we have only a little step to
– This bench is not for heterosexual white males and females
and from there is only a very little step to
– kill the Jews.
Only recently I read an article about an incident in a California school that reached exactly that far and in Germany where we actually should be cured for all times, it’s taking the same pathway.
