I read 1984 a while ago. It’s one of the things wot turned me nutty. I’m listening to it now. Actually I finished listening to it, but I’m listening to it again so I can get more depressed.
I was going to say “It might be a good time to read 1984.” but
a) i’m not that obvious of an asshole and
2) it’s always a good time to read 1984.
The great thing about the internet, is there are people who aren’t lazy like me who start websites like this:
One of the things they do is get the press to focus on bullshit when they’re doing really bad shit.
Yesterday, I was part of a conversation where people could barely contain their rage about the crazy lady who had 8 kids but didn’t even mention that their government was about to fuck us all over to the tune of $786,999,999,999.99
Listening to the news now is impossible. Truly.
We should be fucking beating those fuckers with car antennas but it’s too much trouble. Too bad i don’t have a crazed fan who wants to impress me. I really need to become more famous.
“Barbara Boxer whipped by nutball with car antenna, film at 11. But first: OCTOMOM!!!”

…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…
I think instead of a rat helmet, they’ll put me in a cockroach helmet and make me rub paper with very dry hands.
Speaking of lazy; were I cooler, I’d only use doublethink/newspeak. The idea of reducing the number of words as a way to control people is beautiful.
That Orwell… A doubleplussgood writer.
(it’s sad that I deleted other stuff I wrote because I didn’t want to “get in trouble”. i’m a wusspuss whose inflated ego has the fbi reading his stupid blog)
