GEORGE ORWELL’S WARNINGS RING TRUE TODAY

AMERICAN THINKER

Reassessing Orwell to Understand Our Times

By Scott S. Powell   Scott Powell is senior fellow at Discovery Institute in Seattle. Reach him at scottp@discovery.org 
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE :    

What comfortable and disengaged Americans have forgotten is that there are determined enemies within and there is an internal war being waged against the values and institutions that made America a great nation.

The left is the vanguard leading this war, following a course laid out by cultural Marxists such as Antonio Gramsci and members of the Frankfurt School. Becoming influential in the 1930s and beyond, they believed the “long march through the institutions” was the best route to taking power in developed, industrialized societies such as the United States and Europe. This “march” would be a gradual process of radicalization of social and cultural institutions — “the superstructure” — of bourgeois society, which would transform the values and morals of society.  In retrospect, there is a high correlation between the softening of morals over the last two or three generations and the corruption of our family, political, legal and, economic foundation. 

There are three measures of the establishment’s venality.  First there is a high incidence of denial, manifest for instance in little to no discussion of the doubling of national debt in just 9 years to over $20 trillion, and unfunded entitlement liabilities now five times greater than that — conditions inviting financial collapse of the U.S. A second measure of corruption is the establishment’s reluctance to prosecute fellow establishment law breakers in government, which has effectively created a two-tiered justice system. A third measure of establishment corruption is its accommodation of extremist anti-American groups as though they have a legitimate role to play in reform and influence on policy-making — whether in taking down historic monuments, creating sanctuary cities and controlling the nation’s borders, establishing police protocols in law enforcement, fighting wars overseas, or restructuring the economy at home.

Just two or three generations ago, most Americans understood that George Orwell’s classics Animal Farm and 1984 were written to explain how freedom is lost to totalitarianism and the intolerance that accompanies it.  “Big Brother,” a term still casually used to describe an all-knowing governing authority, comes right out of 1984. In the state that Orwell describes, all subjects are continually reminded that “Big Brother is watching you,” by way of constant surveillance through the pervasive use of “telescreens” by the ruling class. 

Orwell’s warnings about totalitarianism written in novel form in Animal Farm and 1984 came shortly after Freidrich Hayek’s Road to Serfdom was published at the end of World War II.  But it took the shocking revelations from books on Nazism and Soviet Communism, by scholars like William Shirer and Robert Conquest in the 1960s, to really make Orwell relevant for teaching to the masses educated in American public schools.  And it was not just an academic exercise insofar as Stalin’s successors Leonid Brezhnev and Alexei Kosygin were at that time rolling tanks into Czechoslovakia to crush all resistance — enforcing the “Iron Curtain” over eight countries in Eastern Europe — the Soviet model of totalitarian control and subservience to Moscow.

THE CULTURE OF DEATH –AND OF DISDAIN

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL 

The Culture of Death—and of Disdain

Why do Americans own so many guns? Because they don’t trust the protected elites to protect them.

by Peggy Noonan    October 5, 2017
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  I think a lot of Americans have guns because they’re fearful—and for damn good reason. They fear a coming chaos, and know that when it happens it will be coming to a nation that no longer coheres. They think it’s all collapsing—our society, our culture, the baseline competence of our leadership class. They see the cultural infrastructure giving way—illegitimacy, abused children, neglect, racial tensions, kids on opioids staring at screens—and, unlike their cultural superiors, they understand the implications.

Nuts with nukes, terrorists bent on a mission. The grid will go down. One of our foes will hit us, suddenly and hard. In the end it could be hand to hand, door to door. I said some of this six years ago to a famously liberal journalist, who blinked in surprise. If that’s true, he said, they won’t have a chance! But they are Americans, I said. They won’t go down without a fight.

When news broke at Christmastime five years ago of what had happened at Newtown a friend, a news anchor, called and said with a broken voice: “What is the word for what we feel?” I thought for a moment. “Shattered,” I said. “We are shattered, all of us.” When people in ensuing days spoke of what had been done to the little children in the classrooms, I’d put up my hands and say no, we can’t keep putting those words in the air, we can’t afford it. When terrible images enter our heads and settle in, they become too real, and what is real is soon, by the unstable, imitated, repeated.

When Columbine happened in the spring of 1999, it hit me like a wave of sickness. I wrote a piece about the culture of death that produced the teenage shooters: “Think of it this way. Your child is an intelligent little fish. He swims in deep water. Waves of sound and sight, of thought and fact, come invisibly through that water, like radar. . . . The sound from the television is a wave, and the sound from the radio; the headlines on the newsstand, on the magazines, on the ad on the bus as it whizzes by—all are waves. The fish—your child—is bombarded and barely knows it. But the waves contain words like this, which I’ll limit to only one source, the news:

VIDEO – TUCKER CARLSON AND MARK STEYN – ‘WE ARE MAKING OURSELVES A SOCIETY TOO STUPID TO SURVIVE’

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

 

VIDEO – TUCKER CARLSON AND MARK STEYN

Mark Steyn on Dr. Seuss Controversy: ‘We Are Making Ourselves a Society Too Stupid to Survive’

During Friday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” both Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his guest, conservative commentator Mark Steyn, agreed that American society was in decline partly due to librarians like the one who, suggesting that they had racial undertones, refused Dr. Seuss books from First Lady Melania Trump.

According to Steyn, the letter that Massachusetts librarian Phipps Soeiro wrote was “incredibly moronic” and “part of the dumbing down of American society.” After disputing one of Serio’s complaints, Steyn lamented that “we are making ourselves a society too stupid to survive.”

Steyn specifically took issue with Soeiro’s complaint that the main character in “The Cat in the Hat” had a bowtie intended to evoke imagery from racist, minstrel shows. In response, Steyn ran through a list of cartoon characters, such as Mickey Mouse and Porky Pig, who wore bowties. “Cartoon characters wear bowties. That’s nothing to do with minstrel shows,” Steyn argued.

Carlson, who agreed with Steyn’s characterization of American society, wondered whether American culture had “rotted” so much that the nation might fall apart. As he often does, Carlson targeted people in Washington, D.C. for spending too much time on tax reform and not enough time on cultural issues. “Maybe they should have paid a little more attention to stuff like this and a little less to capital gains taxes over the past 40 years,” Carlson said of non-profits in D.C.

Steyn agreed and said that the American educational system was its “biggest structural defect.” Common sense, Steyn suggested, was obliterated by American’s lack of common perception of things like Dr. Seuss books.

“We’re actually nuttier than the Nazis on this,” Steyn said of American culture’s totalitarianism.

NFL players kneel for U.S. national anthem, stand for British anthem during Saints-Dolphins London game


Photos from today’s game in England, where they stood for “God Save the Queen” and protested the USA and provable myth of racial inequality in the USA by kneeling before or during the playing of our national anthem on the field in London.

Three members of the Dolphins — Kenny Stills, Michael Thomas and Julius Thomas — are seen kneeling during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” All three then stood for the British anthem, “God Save the Queen,” which was sung because the game was being played in England.

COLLEGE PROFESSOR: BELIEVING IN HARD WORK IS WHITE IDEOLOGY

College Professor: Believing in Hard Work is White Ideology

By Timothy Meads   September 30, 2017

Pennsylvania State University-Brandywine professor Angela Putman recently asserted in an academic paper that the notion “if I work hard, I can be successful” is merely a product of white ideology, reports Campus Reform.

Angela Putman conducted a study to critique and examine “ideologies within college students’ discourse that are foundational to whiteness.” Her resulting conclusion published on Thursday was that “meritocracy”, or the belief that people should rise based on the fruits of their own labor, is a “white ideology.” In her mind, this “white ideology” is unfortunately widely accepted in academia.

But, Professor Putman argues that professors can change this “ideology” by teaching students “how racism and whiteness function in various contexts, the powerful influence of systems and institutions, and the pervasiveness of whiteness ideologies within the United States.”

Putman believes that it is somehow a bad thing to teach students personal responsibility. Emphasizing a collectivist mindset, Putman puts forth the idea that Americans are falsely “socialized to believe that we got to where we are… because of our own individual efforts.”

This “ideology” she says, perpetuates whiteness and racism throughout society. Once students learn more about “white ideology,” they will hopefully “resist perpetuating and reifying whiteness through their own discourse and interactions,” and challenge systemic “manifestations of racism and whiteness.”

ARMY VETERAN AND STEELERS PLAYER STANDS TALL FOR NATIONAL ANTHEM

Monday, September 25th, 2017

 

Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva is sole Steelers player to stand outside for national anthem

September 24, 2017

    EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:   What has he said about controversial former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick?

 “I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that’s providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year … when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year,” Villanueva told ESPN in 2016……..Villanueva, 29, played college football at West Point, graduating with a degree in systems engineering, according to the Philadelphia Eagles, who signed him in May 2014 before cutting him in August of that year.  

During his military career, Villanueva served three tours in Afghanistan and became an Army Ranger, the team said. He is a recipient of the Bronze Star medal for overseas service and the Bronze Star medal for valor.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers player Alejandro Villanueva stood tall on Sunday for the national anthem, even though his teammates were off the field and out of sight.

The 6’9” former Army Ranger, one of the NFL’s tallest players, stood outside with his hand over his heart for The Star-Spangled Banner before the game against the Chicago Bears.

The gesture came after President Donald Trump spoke Friday about NFL players who kneel during the national anthem.
