2012(1984), Amerisoc and Barak 'O'Brien' [Part 2]

Amid the countless other plans/bills and agencies comprising the Inner party, there is Newspeak (an official language designed to meet ideological needs) and Doublethink (holding mutually contradictory meanings, and allowing prevarication at any and all times) to make the Party appear correct in all manners, all the time.

Some examples of our Inner Party members speaking Newspeak, and pushing Doublethink to the populace:

George Bush (R) “I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system.”

Al Gore (D) “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.”

A memo from the Defense Department called for changing the term ‘Global War on Terror’ to ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.’ That was just furthering Bush’s coining the term ‘War on Terror.’

John McCain (R) stated that the US, itself was a battlefield and needed to be treated as such.

Obama’s administration calling for raising taxes on ‘millionaires & billionaires’ while considering those who make just $250k a year in the millionaire club.

Joe Biden (D) “You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt? – the answer is yes. I’m telling you.”

Michelle Bachmann (R) and Rick Santorum (R) both call for small government, but want that government to decide who can marry, what is acceptable contraception and (like many other Rs and Ds) continued prohibition, that is ‘war on drugs.’

Mitt Romney (R) and Obama (D) both advance that one can be mandated to purchase what the State decided has to be purchased in order to be a law-abiding citizen.

Nancy Pelosi (D) advanced a bold statement of “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.”

Obama chastised ‘rugged individualism’ when he meant isolationism. His choice of words, however, were intentional for it was the nature of individualism he wanted to attack as he championed the Party.

These are just some of the more recent, or more egregious examples of the Inner Party advancing their place in the lives of we citizens.

There are numerous other areas where the Inner Party has begun to creep into our lives through implementation of the various rules and regulations they have enacted. For ‘our health’ Michael Bloomberg (once D, then R, then Independent (I)) began a legal push to lower salt levels in food; both Rs and Ds have enacted laws banning smoking, even on one’s own property; various ‘sin’ taxes as a form of punishment on certain goods/services; in Alaska it is illegal to get drunk in a bar; it is illegal to purchase raw milk; in numerous states it is illegal to spit on the sidewalk. Just in new laws going into effect 2012 are: banning caffeine in beer; making it illegal to use a cell phone in a car; banning incandescent light bulbs; raising minimum wages; banning daytime drink promotions; banning pajamas from being worn in public. Most of these are simply ‘foot-in-the-door’ measures at the state level. But there are even national rules being considered such as a limitation as to how much money one may earn in the Gas Price Spike Act (HR-3784). Though there are few exceptions that deal with rights-violations, notice that most laws do not entail violations of another individual’s rights – it is the law itself that is the violation of individual rights. It doesn’t matter that some of these laws have not been enacted; the fact that they have been advanced shows the Party’s push for control.

More egregious laws that affect us at a greater cost and obvious danger are the new SOPA, NDAA, the expansion of TSA searches to go beyond airports, instituting COBRA checkpoints wherever the TSA deems necessary and drug-raids for the war on drugs. However, what we must be wary of are the precedents set whereby the result appears good, but based off a bad precedent – it is the ingesting of a sweet red fruit that, too late, one finds was lethally poisonous. Anwar al-Awlaki’s killing is just such a red fruit; an apparent ‘bad guy’ prompting various attacks on the US and US citizens. He was a terrorist, and deserving to be killed is shouted by those in power, and at face value it appears that the killing was a good act – that is as those who authorized the killing want it to appear. But, what we must look at is the context of the killing. Constitutional protections are not there to defend the “villain”; constitutional protections are there to defend all of us against a tyrannical government. The villains are to get that protection as well, and when found to be guilty punished accordingly even if the sentence is death. Anwar al-Awlaki was not tried, or even charged. He was deemed by the Inner Party as deserving death, and assassinated. The precedent set was someone the State deemed as a threat, without due process, can be killed; the precedent remains to be applied back on all of us.

Now, combine the killing of another without due process, the enactment of SOPA where free speech is curtailed, the NDAA where without charges one may be detained indefinitely, an increase in the number of Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) requests are being refused, and that everywhere and everyone may be considered a combatant on the indefinite battlefield, we have the beginning of the Minipax, Miniluv and especially Minitrue where the Inner Party may take those it deems problematic and ‘remove’ them. They may be removed for some wrong, even without being formally charged. There exists some law that may justify focusing on them, and those laws continue to encompass more of our lives. If we’re not sent to the Miniluv, we’re still subject to Miniplenty.

This brings us to how Obama is O’Brien, and the face of the coming Inner Party’s plan. The Inner Party has an ubiquitous presence, and as O’Brien championed the Inner Party is the collective, the one in power, immortal as compared to the individual who is singular and will perish. This applies to Obama/O’Brien himself, for he is just a cog in the Inner Party wheel, and it isn’t him, himself, that needs to be addressed, but the Inner Party. More on that, later.

A major weapon of the Inner Party is in turning the people against one another. As Stephen Molyneux observed “Get the masses to attack themselves and it takes less effort for the ruling class to rule over the masses.” 1984 also stated ‘the war was not to be won, but continued – the real war was for the control of the subjects by the ruling group.’ This takes the shape in blatant class warfare, but it is not the extent of it. In 1984, the Inner Party had the Spies and Youth League, a youth organization encouraging children to report on their elders to the Thought Police, and was a system of indoctrination. Amerisoc’s Inner Party today continues in making it more difficult to home school and while in public schools, trying to divide families with Al Gore’s advising children they know more than their parents on things in life; the Department of Education while continuing to have an abominable track record in grades and results while siphoning funds, pushes political agendas such as ‘The Story of Stuff,’ and in various forms of John F. Kennedy’s famous (infamous) admonition “… ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,” and the various mouthpieces of the Inner Party speaking about a ‘fair share,’ which is Newspeak of some only paying while others only receiving. Party schools (government-run) will indoctrinate that the Party is good and needed to help in everything, for the Party must help everyone in their lives. An educated populace would be able to be self-sufficient, and that is not what the Party needs; keep the masses dumb, dependent and obedient, ready to turn on each other, for the Party (see Obama’s Attack Watch).

It is not by coincidence that the Inner Party’s figurehead is Big Brother, and has a ubiquitous presence. One of the goals of the Party is to destroy the concept of ‘ownlife,’ the desire of pursuing one’s own desires instead of the Party’s. The most efficient manner was that of eroding personal bonds, and replacing them with the new family headed by Big Brother. The Spies and Youth League was where the separation began, but the press to wipeout ownlife didn’t finish there; following it was the Junior Anti-Sex League, where celibacy was encouraged as was ‘artsem’ (artificial insemination), in order to wipe out personal bonding – one was not to value another more than anyone else. There was to be no love, no family outside of the Party and Big Brother – the new paternal figure who would guide, protect and provide for the people. We have Big Brother guiding us with the numerous aforementioned laws that exist and have been proposed, that do not have anything to do with rights-violations but curtail ownlife. And, all that is required is absolute obedience.

To continue the drive wipeout ownlife Newspeak gets updated, meaning words have been removed to become ‘unwords’ which are words no longer considered words and to be removed from language. One of those who worked on Newspeak remarked “It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.” Just as the goal of removing sex and family from individual life so people could focus only on the Party, so too does Newspeak ‘narrow the range of thought’ to make ‘thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.’ It removed connotation, leaving simplest denotation and keeping definitions open enough to enable doublethink to work: Ministry of Peace is for war; Ministry of Love is for imprisonment, torture and killing; Miniplenty is for rationing. Precision in language was to be avoided, so responses could be more automatic; no longer are there words such as ‘great’ or ‘grand’ for they, and synonyms have been replaced with ‘plusgood.’ Some definitions and associations are removed, so ‘equal’ couldn’t be associated with politically – there is just what the Party states, nothing more so argument with the Party isn’t possible. The Party is the only axiom needed.

Before we can conclude, we must introduce two more characters who were both Outer Party members: Winston Smith, the protagonist and thought criminal; Parsons, who is Smith’s neighbor, Party member with a family (dying breed in Oceania) and is a simple and true-believer in the Party and Big Brother. Winston’s job is important as he works in Minitrue, making sure the Party doesn’t have any negative impressions. Parsons job isn’t important; he is there to show the unquestioning faith in the Party; for example: while working Winston gets the update from the Miniplenty that choco rations were going to decrease from 30 grams to 25 grams – a negative look – so, instead of saying the rations are being cut down, Winston has the records altered to show that previous rations were 20 grams, so the 25 grams looks as an increase. Parsons, afterward, upon seeing Winston asks if he heard the good news of the choco rations being increased to 25 – Parsons elatedly said “doubleplusgood.”

This brings us to Barak O’Brien’s advancing and explaining the necessity and plan of the Party, how the aforementioned ties all in together. O’Brien explains this to Winston; the explanation takes place through numerous torture sessions in a torture room and cell at the Ministry of Love. As Winston focused on ownlife with Julia, a woman he came to love, and they both shared their passion, the Thought Police arrested them both. The main point of O’Brien’s interrogation/lesson was to cure Winston of his thoughtcrime – of not living enough for the Party. To work in conjunction with the torture, Winston is starved and through an unspecified time, becomes weak and emaciated. As O’Brien continued the lessons, Winston was tortured, lost in delirium/hallucinating and even being coddled as O’Brien acted as a paternal force protecting Winston in between tortures. We have Obama’s big smile as he watches over the implementation of the Inner Party’s expansion into our lives. In the State of the Union Address, Obama praised the efficiency of the military, mentioning how each member can be placed where they’re needed to achieve a goal. Military efficiency is to be praised, for the military; its model of obedience or face legal consequences is not a model for liberty of free citizens of the nation.
