LITERATURE - George Orwell

"The Orwellian ambition to render language incapable of even expressing the concept "freedom" has nearly been fulfilled. Not by eliminating the word, but by converting it into a mere image, an empty shell, a brand." - Charles Eisenstein

During times of universal deceit,
telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.


language constructed to disguise or distort the actual meaning

evasive, ambiguous language that is intended to deceive and confuse

the practice of using ambiguous language regarding political, military,
or corporate matters in a deliberate attempt to disguise the actual truth

Doublespeak or doubletalk can be defined as a mixture of sensible terms and unfamiliar terms or familiar terms used in an unfamiliar context.

The art of doublespeak or pseudo-communication is to provide what listeners want or expect to here in an illusory form so that it readily becomes accepted as real communication.

You're most susceptible to doublespeak or doubletalk when you unconsciously listen to a radio or television announcer.

An actor, "Dr." Myron Fox, was hired to use pseudo-communication some years ago on the contrived topic, "Mathematical Game Theory As Applied To Physician Education."

He successfully deceived his audience of psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators using buzz words, doubletalk and non sequiturs. An ostensibly knowledgeable individual can present an aggressive, personable demeanor and overwhelm his listeners even though in essence he said absolutely nothing.

Even though the psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators understood hardly anything he said, they were immensely impressed. The actor fooled not just one, but three separate audiences of professional and graduate students. Despite the emptiness of his lecture, fifty-five psychiatrists, psychologists, educators, graduate students, and other professionals produced evaluations of Dr. Fox that were overwhelmingly positive.

The most disturbing feature of the Dr. Fox study, as the experimenters noted, is that Fox's nonverbal behaviors so completely masked a meaningless, jargon-filled, and confused presentation. Being impressive without giving an understanding was the purpose of this exercise.

This is a form of psycholinguist programming.

Psycholinguist programming is used by brand marketers to subconsciously implant predetermined actions under the proper stimuli just as Pavlov's dogs were taught to salivate at the ringing of the bell.

A poor but intelligent speaker can say a great deal in an unimpressive manner, while an eloquent speaker may say nothing flamboyantly. By learning how to impressively say nothing, you can learn to recognize it better in others. In this way, you can learn to be impressed or unimpressed with exactly what someone says, not with credentials or position in life.

Learning to give individual thought to what is heard, instead of just allowing emotional reaction or attempting a witty reply, is important to understand anything and KNOW how you understand it. By questioning what you hear and read, regardless of its official source, thinking on any subject will be sharpened and decisions on its correctness will become more discerning.


The Party is not interested in the overt act.

The thought is all we care about.

"In the end the Party announced that two and two made five, and you had to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of actual experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy." - Wiston Smith

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four.
If that is granted, all else follows.

The average millionaire is only
the average dishwasher dressed in a new suit.

If liberty means anything at all,
it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

At any given moment there is an orthodoxy,
a hierarchy of ideas which it is assumed all right thinking people
will accept without question.

It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done"…

Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness.

NSA surveillance goes beyond Orwell's imagination

journalistic Orwell

A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in the highbrow periodicals.

Loss of liberty is inimical to all forms of literature. The fact is that certain themes cannot be celebrated in words, and tyranny is one of them. No one ever wrote a good book in praise of the Inquisition.

Animal Farm

The short novella is an allegory in which animals play the roles of the Bolshevik revolutionaries and overthrow and oust the human owners of the farm, setting it up as a commune in which, at first, all animals are equal; however, class and status disparities soon emerge between the different animal species.

The novel describes how a society's ideologies can be manipulated and twisted by those in positions of social and political power, including how a utopian society is made impossible by the corrupting nature of the very power necessary to create it.

A Final Warning from George Orwell

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought. All factual information presented on this web site is believed to be true and accurate and is presented as originally presented in print media which may or may not have originally presented the facts truthfully. Opinion and thoughts have been adapted, edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited and re-corrected as nearly all opinion and thought has been throughout time but has been done so in the spirit of the original writer with the intent of making his or her thoughts and opinions clearer and relevant to the reader in the present time.

Dedicated to the establishment of knowledge, truth, justice and a clear understanding of reality as the American way!
