It's been foretold
    #1597241 - 06/01/03 01:02 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Anyone ever read 1984, Brave New World, or Farenheit 451, all of it's coming true. Distinct classes that are unescapable, people addicted to tv, which will soon have cameras in them. Governmental spying, everything, why isn't the public made aware of what's going on, oh yeah royal authority is ordained by God, I keep forgetting that, well if religion says it right, it must be, nothing evil has been done by religious people. Except for the crusades, Bush, Osama, Nazis and pretty much every atrocity man has ever seen. Don't get me wrong the concept of a higher power isn't bad, but bearucratic religions are.

I know it's off topic but this reminds me of an old soviet joke...
People are standing in a lake of shit. They're all focused on keeping their noses above the surface.
Someone starts to yell: "I can't stand it anymore. How can we live like this? Why don't we do something?"
Others reply: "Shut the fuck up! You're making waves!"

Exactly everyone is too intent of bettering themselves and no one has the selflessness to do something worthwhile.

1984 scares the shit out of me. Everyone should read that book.

I think that BNW is a more accurate portryal of how Western/Anglo nations will become devoid of free-speeechorthougt rather than F451 or 1984. It's so much easier to brainwash the people and have them living that style of life than brutally oppressing them. If you remove teh desire for free thought at youth, thats teh way to do it.

You are the perfect example of how the brainwashing has already begun and is very successful.

"Distinct classes that are unescapable"

That's nothing new. Class systems have been around since the origins of society.

"people addicted to tv, which will soon have cameras in them"

Now you're just making things up.

"Governmental spying, everything, why isn't the public made aware of what's going on"

Governments have always been spying. I'm not exactly sure what you're accusing the government of here.


"oh yeah royal authority is ordained by God, I keep forgetting that"

Ok, now you've completely lost it. We don't live in a monarchy. There are very few monarchies left in the world right now. Which government are you referring to here? The US government does not claim to have authority "ordained by god".

Tut tut... right mindedness :-)

I think it's funny how people just toss "buddha" or some other "neat" religion-eqsue name as their nickname, and have no idea as to teh concepts, and obviously are not practitioners of such. When I lived in Tibte, I had numerous discussion with buddhist monks and I can't recall any of them having your hatred. What CAUSES the hatred? what is your addication that causes that? Your emotions are your own, I might trigger them inside of oyu, but they are your own, and if you can't control them, you are only showing that you allow your mind to dictate how you feel, rather than you dictating how you feel.

Funny how that hatred is so consitent towards you, from nearly everyone who has the displeasure of reading your posts.


You try and sound wise but its really quite entertaining.
" you are only showing that you allow your mind to dictate how you feel, rather than you dictating how you feel."
See, thats my problem....my damn mind keeps dictating how i feel....rather than "me".... :confused: :tongue:

LOL I've been saying this stuff for years... Pop Culture is the death of America. The TV and media control us and our country because the majority of people don't want to take the extra effort of thinking for themselves. Tuning in and Tuning out has led to the destruction of our minds and will. People sit in front of the TV for ungodly amounts of time every week and absorb what Big Brother feeds them in the form of thought-free entertainment.
Pysiologically speaking, it has been studied and proven that the increasingly more and more frequent commerical breaks are one of the leading causes of ADD. We place our children in front of the TV because it is easier to let TV teach them about life and the world rather than take the time to become a part of our children's upbringing.
Anyways, I believe that you're all a little behind on the times. The mass brainwashing has occured already, and most people are to lazy to care. It's a shame to see this once great country the ruinous shambles it has now become.

You should read Brave New World Revisited. Huxley wrote it in the 60's looking back at his book and how it related to things of the new era.
