Ah, right… the 1984 approach to the presidency.
This was done by the enemies of
Oceania the republican party. Agents of East Asia the democratic party and Goldstein Hillary Clinton were working together to overthrow the Party.
“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
George Orwell’s 1984
You know, we all lie to ourselves.
We all lie to others.
The differences between all of the lies we all tell… is the motivation behind them.
Humans re-frame the world around them, re-frame their own thoughts and actions, because facing the truth is simply too painful. We all do it and we’re not going to stop any time soon.
But trying to force other people into your re-framed, perfect, little world of lies… is one of the more insidious things you can do.
And that is one of the most unfortunate things about the Trump administration.
They are all so fully obsessed with their own lies they are trying to force the entire world into their little delusional world.
We live in the world of 1984 and refuse to realize it. But hey… like I just said… we all lie to ourselves 🙃
