… a cartoon essay by Scott Stantis, Chicago Tribune:
Everyone thinks 1984 is a work of fiction. Little do most realize that Orwell was from the future, sent back to warn us. 1984 is, in fact, an accurate account of the future Orwell came from, but not necessarily the one we are destined for. Terminator got him, however. That may well have doomed us for an alternate, hopefully better future.
To further manage the path to that particular future, they* sent back a bunch of cyranoids** whom have been placed in positions of power and influence.
“Them” have also sent back powerful surveillance technology to watch our every move. This spyware is engineered with highly advanced psychotropic properties that hopelessly addict the user. So even if the user becomes aware of being under perpetual surveillance, s/he is unable to resist, and, in fact willingly and enthusiastically submits to further mind control.
Them walk among us. Trust no one.
Of course, we are screwed now that the future has been secured, because we failed to act on Orwell’s warning. So, just carry on and watch it unfold.
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Have a nice future 8^)
* actually it would be more accurate to call “they” “Them,” as Them are the mysterious operators we always suspect are manipulating things behind the scenes, mostly in what we call the “Deep State.”
** Cyranoids are people who do not speak thoughts originating in their own central nervous system. Rather, the words they speak originate in the mind of another person (or sentient being) who transmits the words to the cyranoid by some form of wireless transmission. Them have been working on an app, or more accurately a virus, that will infect the user of a mobile device or smart phone after prolonged staring into the devices screen. Once the app is uploaded into the persons memory, that person would effectively become a cyranoid, unable to act on their own ideas. Rumour has it that the app is presently in beta on some Android and iOS devices.
