And the Great Republican Trump Slayer Is…

 

First, let us review a few overly obvious insights. The Republican hierarchy does not particularly like President Trump. This is especially true of the New England, Country Club Republican moneyed people such as the Bush’s. They find him marginally better than Hillary Clinton. Trump did not belong to the Skull and Bones or attend Harvard or Yale. His college did not have ivy covered buildings or even one vine of ivy. He has a rough and tumble styled personality with little if any refinement. He doesn’t even hold his pinkie out when sipping tea and he has never even sipped tea, what a barbarian. Trump is uncouth, surprise, surprise. He is insulting and very rough on a refined ear. Never mind that these oh so refined Republicans, much like their Democrat cousins, have family histories steeped in criminal or marginally legal acts through which their fortunes were built. They now set the standard that those who desire to reach the heights of power must, at the very least, pretend to value and toe their line. They are the “old money” and they turn their noses up at the upstarts such as the Trump family along with others whose dirty dealings brought them into money less than four generations back. They really want somebody else to represent their pure and refined Republican Party and have no space for those popularists who appeal to those “flyover people” who hold the coasts apart.

 

One need understand that the elite Republicans and elite Democrats who run the United States are two sides of the same coin and are the problem. They both fear Trump because he could expose their monopoly on power over the last hundred years plus and how they have played the American people with their ruse of there being any difference between the two parties. The political spectrum presented to the American people places the Democrats at the far left edge, or there abouts, and places the Republicans at the far right edge, or there abouts. This is what is drilled into the little heads of mush from the very first lesson given in grade school and the left edge is treated as the center and the natural order of things while the right is to be feared as exclusionary. They never bother to tell you that both groups are exclusionary and being exclusionary is not necessarily an evil thing. We are taught to be exclusionary when choosing friends and to avoid those bad people, who are defined differently depending on where you are raised. The reality is that both the Democrat Party and the Republican Party are both together slightly left of center and sliding ever more to the left while the United States Constitution is quite a bit to the right of both parties and they have slid far from the founding positions and are moving ever more away (see diagram below). What you also notice, if you are actually paying attention, is that where the top has the edges defined as right and left, the bottom has them as Statism and Individualism. This is due to another little lie you were taught, that the Communists were on the left, meaning good, and the Nazis were on the right, meaning bad, and this was taught so true conservatives being equated with Nazism made perfect sense as both were defined as on the right. The truth is Nazism and Communism are two varieties of the same socio-political construct, Socialism. The difference between the two comes down to a single word as the Nazis are National Socialists and the Communists are International Socialists. Their only real difference was the Nazis desired everybody to be German Socialists where the state directed all production and ownership without actually owning them and the Communists wanted to do away with the concept of statehood and sell themselves as the party of the people when in reality they would become the party of the people who were at the top of the government. The Nazis took over the decisions of production while allowing the original owners to continue running the particulars to reach the desired goals allowing those who knew how to manage and get results in place while the Communists removed the owners of the companies and land owners and executed them as villains of the people and then placed their friends in charge of everything and could not figure out why production suffered with people who knew nothing about running a company now running the companies and those who had never grown even a potted plant now becoming the farmers.

 

Political Spectrum Taught Versus Actual

 

Both forms of Socialism have their problems as does any form of government, the most challenging of all is keeping government from growing and stifling freedom and productivity with too many laws and regulations, of which regulations are the more sinister as they are put in place by bureaucrats who are not elected and usually cannot be fired or even identified. Perhaps a good idea would be for everyone who is in a meeting that approves a new regulation be required to sign their names along with the person who originated the regulation signing it in letters the size of John Hancock when signing the Declaration of Independence. Why not have them put their good old John Hancock on the regulations they design, factory workers are required to sign off on items they worked on defining their parts and job requirements so if it fails down at testing, the company knows who is doing their job incorrectly and can retrain them or replace them. The same should apply to government regulations. This would be an idea that President Trump would likely really find of interest, perhaps somebody could show him this idea for us, and please give us the due credit.

 

We should get back to the subject at hand. Perhaps we should start with a slow build-up though most of you already know who it is the Republicans have chosen to replace President Trump on the 2020 ballot. He is really no stranger to us and has run for President and lost before. He is about to become a carpetbagger and be elected to the United States Senate in a state in which he may have a legal residence but has never represented before in his political life. In many ways, he will be the reverse Hillary. Hillary Clinton went from being from Arkansas to the Senator from New York and this individual will be going from Governor of Massachusetts to the Senator from Utah. She went from flyover country to the big East Coast and he is going from the big East Coast to flyover country. Yes, you guessed it; we are talking about Mitt Romney. Are all the Republicans cheering and excited about not voting for Mitt Romney again? Just think, if Hillary Clinton were to steal the nomination in 2020 and Mitt Romney steals the nomination in 2020, the United States could have the worst turnout at the polls in its history as both parties refuse to support their candidates. It would be such fun to watch nobody really care which one wins, as it would make no difference.

 

We would like to close by counting down some of the most important accomplishments President Trump has performed almost single-handedly and with minimal recognition from the establishment. The reason is it has been the establishment and its tentacles which President Trump has revealed. The media has been laid bare for all to see and their complicity in manipulating the information rather than reporting the information is now understood by all. He has completely blown the lid off there being any real difference between the hardline Republicans and hard line Democrats where the differences are minimal and they actually all but work as one unit. He has made obvious that the real problem is exactly as Ronald Reagan stated those many years ago, “Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” (see video below) President Trump wrote an executive order to the executive branch employees and managers in particular that for every new regulation any department writes, they need to retire two older regulations. We will grant that every department has many hundreds if not thousands of regulations which are not enforced. Some selections of these are not enforced for a reason, as they are part of the plan for totalitarian government control in the near future. The idea, which is a tried and true concept used by governments throughout history, is to make all the laws and regulations necessary for the government to assume complete control over the entirety of production and limit all freedoms curtailing even free travel without government approval. These are not provisions for an emergency; they are fully enforceable regulations lying basically dormant. When the time came and the wrong person was in the White House and their party controlled Congress, then all the dormant regulations would come from their sleepy folders and be enforced all at once. What happens is you wake one morning and all of a sudden, you find your personal vehicle impounded and every inch of your life is being turned upside-down. You have new people running your workplace and many people you know disappear never to be seen again unless you run into them by accident. Should you run into them, they are no longer the same, as they appear to have suffered something so traumatic that their minds are as if they were wiped clean and they have been turned into simpletons incapable of free thought.

 

 

By the time you see these people in this state, you will have been conditioned sufficiently yourself to know to simply walk away and accept the loss and say nothing. By then you would have learned to master your facial emotiveness and eradicated all visible signs of caring or being offended by anything. That would come under the definition of survival in this Brave New World where your former workmate now sips their tea with the pinkie held out while murmuring, “I love Big Brother.” How does the United States avoid falling into that trap? That, my friends, is an excellent question. Thus far the only governments to have avoided such or similar fate are those still progressing to that point. Progressing to that point is an appropriate label as it will be the Progressives (also have been called Leftists, Liberals, forward-looking, radicals, revolutionaries, Democrats, Republicans or Socialists) who take the country there. What all these political labels have in common is they are Statists and believe that government can solve every problem and when their government solution causes new problems, the government can solve those just as adequately. The people who are guaranteed to take the nation, any nation, to this point have a title and an occupation, they are called politicians. Politicians are in the business of being in your business. They truly believe their life’s raison d’être is to assure that everybody lives a perfect life and they are going to define exactly what that perfect life should be in the name of individual freedom. They accomplish this over the long haul, as you cannot impinge on people to that great an extent overnight without first conditioning them over most of their lives. How do you condition people to take such a threat to their own free choice? Easy, you teach them to accept all authority, work only in groups where no one person is given recognition though it is expected for the group to carry their weakest members (often they make up the majority in the team and live off other’s efforts), be weak finding offense easily and then reacting as if all is lost and they then go to those who define offenses to receive calming and other therapies. These therapies often include warm blankets, puppies or kittens, coloring books, soft insipid music and therapists or psychologists. They raise a population of what are currently called snowflakes and are actually more like sheep in waiting for their assigned ram to follow everywhere and to define their actions. The rams are bred separately by the politicians and are often their children whom they believe will be assigned by them to rule the New World Order. The world will likely be split into three large groups, Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia (see map below). They will have a reason for their New World Order to be divided, this way they gain additional control as they stage wars between the three factions. One will be your ally and the other your enemy and then at some point they change around to the opposite. This provides a means for rationing and every sort of political heavy-handedness. Control will be the watchword and the world will resemble a combination of George Orwell’s 1984 and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley with a heavy dose of Albert Camus.

Again, let us return to Mitt Romney and his presumed primary challenge to Donald Trump in 2020. Should Romney succeed and defeat Trump to represent the Republican Party in 2020, we can expect whomever the Democrat Party nominates to win. The truth is, unless the Democrat Party selects Keith Ellison, Mitt Romney would probably lose once more as he cannot get much of the Republican base out to vote in the required swing states which Trump won. His only chance is to get the Democrats to nominate somebody who can be made to appear so controversial and outside the American mainstream, that Romney becomes a life preserver for those people. This was President Trump’s magic ticket; he was the not-Hillary candidate. Had the Democrat Party nominated Bernie Sanders, then Trump very likely would have lost, as the youth vote added to the Democrat base would have won the election for “Bernie” just as they did for President Obama, twice. Either party can still win an election if they can find a sizeable sector and produce for them a solid reason to get out and vote. The Presidency is still about getting your base excited and out to vote. The coming midterm elections will have a very active leftist Democrats voting plus their standard base of voters which could cause problems for the Republican candidates. They are going to have the uphill battle in swing states and will need to give their base reasons to get to the voting booths.

 

This will not be a problem which Mitt Romney will face in Utah as he does have a residence there, he is a member in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, attended Brigham Young University (BYU) as did his fiancée, and his mother was a native of Logan, Utah. Much of his political life was spent as United States Senator and Governor for the state of Massachusetts as well as saving the failing Winter Olympic Games of 2002 held in Salt Lake City, Utah by assuming the role of President of the Organizing Committee. Should Mitt Romney prevail, which all signs claim he shall, this would be his first political position for the state of Utah. His previous life in Utah and working for the Salt Lake City Olympics do make him far less of a carpetbagger than was Hillary Clinton when she ran for the Senate seat for the state of New York. Still, Mitt Romney is a very competent manager and leader and would serve as an adequate, if not excellent, President if only he could be electable. The other point which needs making is that by forcing the Republican Party in Utah to give Mitt Romney their Senate seat is preventing the advancement of other likely presentable and decent candidates. There have also been rumors that the Republican leadership plans to appoint Mitt Romney a plum position of prominence such as Chairman of National Republican Senatorial Committee or talk of him replacing Mitch McConnell and becoming the Republican Senatorial Leader and possibly Majority Leader should the Republicans hold the Senate. All of these speculations point to grooming of Mitt Romney and keeping his name prominently in the news. He is a known critic of President Trump which he moderated while he pleaded his case to be Secretary of State but resumed attacking the President even taking a swipe when announcing his run for the Utah Senate seat. We can expect Mitt Romney to run the Republican #Never Trump wing of the party taking opposing views and blocking a goodly amount of President Trump’s initiatives. This could become an ugly conflict fought out in full public view with President Trump utilizing his Twitter Account while Mitt Romney will utilize and ever eager media which will feed on anything he states which can be turned against the President no matter the intent by Romney. The media will use Romney to fuel their war on President Trump. The difficulty Mitt Romney will face is the lack of honesty perceived to exist, or the lack thereof, in the media being so strong that his message, no matter how it is presented, will be ignored or simply not believed to be valid as reported. This will mean that Romney will need a secondary means for getting his message heard. This is where President Trump has proven effective, using the media as his own tool to wield while still getting his message out. The only problem is sifting through the noise to find the nuggets of actual message and intent, not just ridicule. What will a nation decide if they need to choose between Donald Trump and Mitt Romney and will the people’s choice even matter or will the game be fixed as per the Democrats selecting Hillary Clinton. If the Republicans are perceived to have put in the fix to nominate Mitt Romney, then we would not give a plug nickel of a chance for his winning the Presidency. His age precludes his being patient and we doubt he has given up on getting the gold ring and winning the biggest prize, the Oval Office.

Countdown to Impeachment

 

President Trump just made another major misstep; he failed to fight for his health care legislation empowering his enemies. Sure the media have been playing up each and every Tweet as if it were the crime of the century, but that has been hype, all hype. That is the job the media has in this attempt to overthrow democratically elected governance in the United States. The media are the shock troops playing the game as those infected with the screaming heebie jeebies. Their job is to foment the atmosphere of mistrust, suspicion and general mayhem so that anything which follows appears to have validity. When President Trump pulled the healthcare legislation admitting defeat, he opened the door to his downfall. His blaming the Democrats will only serve to instill in them more hate and spite leading them to become even more entrenched seeking his downfall. They were going to head in this direction anyways and this was inevitable, but now they will feel empowered and capable of blocking any and all attempts by the President to govern effectively. That always was the first step, take out President Trump’s ability to govern effectively.

 

The next step is already in motion and is being headed by the leading man of the disloyal progressive opposition, Senator McCain. McCain still believes he should be the leading figure in the Republican Party and has always felt they let him down and were the reason he lost in 2008. It has never occurred to him that the reason he lost in 2008 was that John McCain was completely outclassed and defeated by the media and his complete inability to excite the Republican base. John McCain actually believes he is a staunch and true conservative just because he opposes three or four extreme leftist ideas and otherwise is just as left wing as Hillary Clinton once those few ideas are removed from the equation. John McCain sees the election of Donald Trump not as a sign that he actually earned the election by getting the Republican base excited but because he got exactly who the media claim elected him, rabble and uneducated morons easily led off by Donald the Pied Piper Trump. McCain sees his position of fighting Trump as the Republican knight in shining armor saving the party from oblivion. McCain just cannot accept that his wing of Republicans are the lost sheep with nowhere to go and unable to ever win any national election and that the Republican Party has become truly conservative and originalist in their holding and understanding of the Constitution. The mainstream Republicans are now almost literally Tea Party Republicans who enforce the Constitution and its Amendments precisely as written to save the United States because anything less will allow the Progressives their eventual victory and the end of America. It matters not if that view is valid, it is where the base and the votes lie and McCain will never excite these people and they would rather stay home than vote for a phony conservative, a right leaning progressive.

 

So, now that the Democrats have been placed in the position of defending Obamacare which they see as the logical step to destroy heath care insurance and force single payer government healthcare as the saving grace along with the rest of their progressive pro-government programs which will lead to only one conclusion, they will rally and draw even tighter and any Democrat who was even considering not standing with the most radical of their party will be put on notice, stand with us or you will face defeat in the next primary election. The Democrats see the election of Donald Trump as their now or never position as they know that their cover has been blown and the “silent majority” has seen them for who they truly are. What is so sad is that many of their supporters still have their blinders in place and do not realize these monsters for who they really are. They still view the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters and the rest for loyal liberals fighting the good fight for the cause. If only this were true, there would be hope; but a full third to forty percent of the voting public are firmly supporting the people who wish to place government as the board of directors over every major employer and while leaving private ownership and the belief that freedom exists, their reality would have government dictating almost everything even to production demands and buying habits to government through over-regulation to simple direct control. The Democrats who have taken control of the Democrat Party are full behind this central control and have the voters fully behind their ideas and reasoning which include such fronts as Global Climate Change, Corporate Greed is Evil, the Police are Fascist Shock Troops and the like. The Police are Fascist Shock Troops actually is one of the most ridiculous of these claims as it was under President Obama that enormous amounts of military vehicles and hardware were transferred to police forces across the United States at prices that I could have afforded one of those heavy armored vehicles that the police have at their disposal had I been permitted to purchase one and likely you could have as well. These were priced just slightly more expensive than two squad cars and were heavily financed by the Federal Government making even Mayberry Police able to buy one for officer Fife (there’s a joke there if you are old enough to remember Barney Fife and his bullet in his pocket so he wouldn’t shoot his foot again).

 

The plan is to continue to play hardball and allow John McCain to run interference on the right and when sufficient Republicans are convinced that Trump is simply incompetent and unable to accomplish anything, then they will strike. The claim will be he is and always was a phony businessman and never built anything in his life, accomplishing everything with his Daddy’s money and name. They will play up the incompetency of his presidency and that the nation deserves better. There will be moves to paint Pence and Ryan as well as people unable to rule effectively as they are just as bad as Trump. The entire idea is to get sufficient numbers of the population, 15% to 20% is all it takes with all centered in the major cities, believing that the only path to good and steady leadership is the Democrat Party, the moderate Democrats who even John McCain claims can be reasoned with and worked with. The entire Republican Party leadership and most of its truly conservative base Representatives and Senators will all be painted as subversive elements who are trying to destroy the nation supporting this losing child-President Trump. Then there will be the placing of the impeachment charges which will be all formal and will find an actual plausible reason, one the rabble can latch onto as a cause celeb. Once the votes are secured, the charge is irrelevant as in order to impeach a President you only need the votes in the House of Representatives and then to remove the President you need the votes in the Senate. The Constitution lays out the reasons of which one is malfeasance or the ill-defined “high crimes and misdemeanors” which could include anything from impropriety to murder to tax evasion to jaywalking, it all depends on what the media can sell and sufficient numbers of people accept. Understand that once charges of impeachment have been leveled against President Trump we can expect that the opposition will have the votes necessary with a comfortable extra few in numbers in case some get cold feet and shrink from the idea. The idea will be to have governance handed to those adults in the room who know how to govern and in order to prevent such a disaster as another President Trump from ever occurring again, the Electoral College will be thrown out along with all the other parts of an obsolete and useless piece of parchment that the Constitution has become, after all it was written by angry, old, slave owning, anti-woman, white men who did not understand what the world has become, after all they probably thought man should not fly because they do not have wings and such things. They had muzzle loading rifles, what could they have understood about machineguns? They are as outdated as powdered wigs and their Constitution; it’s the Twenty-First Century already, time to modernize America. The new rallying cry will be something just like that, Time to Modernize America for the Modern Times. With this they will restructure governance in the United States and America will be born and the entire concept of the United States as individual states in a federal government will die and Europe will welcome the new America to their failing ways which are failing as we were watching and will then be joining. You will know the fix is in should the new form of government be parliamentary.

 

Big Brother is Watching

 

The push is coming to make America a nation run by its major cities under Democrat Party control with the rest of the nation dragged along for the ride. The name bandied around and used against President Trump will never be applied to the new America as they could never be fascist, even if fascism is defined as the government taking control of the steering wheel and dictating to industry and big businesses how they can and will run their companies while permitting private ownership. The new government will rule absolutely not permitting even a scintilla of opposition to their ideas and demands on the people. Forget freedom as that is such an antiquated and quaint idea which does not permit the government to do what is right and correct for the people. The people are not as wise and worldly as are their betters in the government who all went to the correct schools and majored in how to rule over a nation. What could the peasants possibly know about how to run a successful country with the responsibility for directing all the industrial and managerial giants and be so astute to every nuanced concept; after all it was exactly this which brought every advancement since the bicycle. There will be posters and they will be Yuge and Wondrous and everybody will feel like saluting the posters, after all that is what the man on the corner with the big gun expects and we would not want him reporting our lack of enthusiasm. The poster, if it were honest, would look a lot like the one above, admit it, you wanted to straighten up in your seat and look good as if the poster was looking back through your monitor, didn’t you. Don’t let little slogans bother you because as long as you’re a good citizen, do your assigned job, oh yes, that’s right, the job your chose or were chosen for from first grade, and as long as you are happy, then you have nothing to fear. And just to make this Brave New World be a little happier, you did take your allotment of Soma today, we would not want to skip our Soma after work, after all it is for the nation to keep and stay happy. There you go, be a happy citizen.

Liberal and Conservative Redefined

 

The demonstrations, some claim rioting, over the election these last couple of days has pointed to the need to redefine the “New Age” definitions of a Liberal and a Conservative. For those residing in Europe during World War II, they got a taste of these definitions though then they were referred to by the more accurate titles of Fascists and those fighting for Freedom. Let us first understand that the modern use of these two terms have literally nothing to do with their original meanings and those who continue to use the classical definition of Liberal as open to change and Conservative as against the new and the changes it brings may feel cheated and offended. We apologize, but the evidence is out there on the streets calling for horrific responses to the result of the election, responses that traditional Liberals and Conservatives would and are appalled by and rightly so. The one thing that is constant in politics more than almost anywhere else is change, particularly in definitions.

 

The new definitions are as follows:

Liberal = liberation of the stuffy limitations of classical Judeo-Christian ethos of right and wrong. The new right and wrong is ‘Me right and You wrong, period, end of discussion.’

Conservative = protect and apply the Judeo-Christian ethics to society as any other societal model is heathen and immorally dangerous.

 

The definition for Conservative probably needs some deeper and more specific terminology but the Conservatives today include many of the former Liberals who believed in “fair play” and that when your opponents won the election you sought a more pleasing candidate and did some soul-searching to see where your side may have had deficiencies. Not under the new instant gratification crowd who probably have difficulty in figuring out why death means dead and not simply make a new character or use a resurrection scroll or start the game over with full life and ammo. We are being a tad facetious but this is the definitions the new left was raised with and were never denied being a winner as everybody gets the same size trophy which says “participant” or other empty descriptor on the base and all were cheered equally. These are the people who never kept score and the sides changed after everybody batted once. Some have never run the bases and stealing a base today would be tantamount to cheating, after all it is called stealing. These were people who saw no problem with there being no gender allotted to the class prom King and Queen as it all depended on how you defined yourself and there is no actual reality and being made in the image of the Creator is simply so “then” as to be ludicrous. The definitions have all changed and the only definitions which matter are the ones held by each individual and as long as you defined yourself with the proper “needs” specialty, then you were welcome but if you chose to be what used to be called normal or sane, then you had a problem and were the outcast.

 

There was a definition of evil and it was White, Straight and Male. Well, perhaps the White, Straight and Male should describe themselves in terminology these new Liberals could possibly accept, they are just Lesbian Women trapped in a Man’s body. I can hear the gasps and the anger already as obviously this is going too far as one is not permitted to mock these new liberators of peoplehood; mankind or humanity are no longer permitted as they have that evil “man” syllable within. OK, it’s to the reeducation camp for me as I am truly a troglodyte, a Morlock in an Eloi world. The new Liberals see themselves as the Eloi and see the previous generations and those with traditional values as the Morlock with one major difference, when the sirens blare today it is the Morlocks who are to march to their deaths at the hands of the Eloi. Their definitions are so in need of being shown the errors that it is bordering on sad.

 

Eloi and the Morlock

Eloi and the Morlock

 

There are going to be problems defining and understanding what is the reality from moment to moment as visions of past, present and future change as “newthink” will demand with redefined terms and the rewritten history changing all as it is fluid and easily diverted in any direction as the needs arise and where nothing is true which cannot be altered to fit the next trend. We were always had been and were at war with Eurasia until it became we were always having been at war with Eastasia but we were always right because we were citizens of Oceania and were ruled by Big Brother who was infallible. War was a constant and those who desired change would eventually be driven into the resistance which, oddly enough, was also run by the government so as to give people a perceived way out when all it did was find those needing reeducation. In the end one could only end up with one outlook, to love Big Brother and hate the leader of the Revolution who was jeered during the daily exercise of the Two Minutes Hate, Emmanuel Goldstein.

 

The 1984 World

The 1984 World

 

Just to keep this confusing we may as well jump to the next novel which is likely also not taught in today’s school as thinking is not encouraged, only obedience to the new truths and morals of special compensations. Soon enough society will produce exactly the distribution of workers genetically modified for their specific tasks in the society with mental abilities and training (programming) such that their assigned work will be found eminently satisfying and after work they will mingle within their caste and use the legally proscribed drugs and engage in the only thing which matters other than work, pleasure. Everybody will be sterilized and natural birth made illegal as it introduces variables and society must be ordered thus variables are unacceptable. The population must be kept in balance and all want eliminated as each type or caste of individuals will only find others of their caste attractive and only the elite will be permitted free thought as they are the scientists and the directors of the bureaucracy which controls society. There will be those for whom these ways are too restrictive and who might seek to have children of their own and thus sneak to find ways around the contraceptives demanded to be taken daily. These people are dangerous and excommunicated to an island or sent to the reservations where people live in horrific standards where there are variables and people are born naturally. Such is unacceptable in proper society though the savages do present an amusement for those who reside in the perfect world.

 

How much longer before all these horrors become true? How far into the future will society continue before we live in a 1984 style Brave New World? After that, how long before we split into two separate offshoots of humanity, the Eloi and the Morlock? These are the eventual results of the current path. Love of Big Brother, big, all-controlling, all-consuming, all-powerful governance which births different castes of peoples as needed and dictates every inch of life with universal surveillance using computers to monitor your every mood detecting the slightest deviations which will get one placed in reeducation or deported into the wilds of the Reservation unless the deviant is an Alpha who are sent to a special island where they live, reproduce and varieties of offspring are tolerated, even loved and treasured. A society where deviance is not permitted just as electing the wrong candidate apparently is not to be permitted by the programed youth today. No, all the youth are not infected and resisted the reeducation camps which pass for schools in most major leftist run cities and their suburbs. These will hopefully be the leaders who take mankind, yes; we used the “man” syllable, into a more promising future where everyone is not their own special basket case requiring special treatment by the government in order to survive.

 

Big Brother is Always Watching

Big Brother is Always Watching

 

Perhaps instead the future will have individuals as members of “peoplekind” and all real thinking and productive actions will need be automated and people will need to be “special” and entertaining so that their keepers, the AI robots will have them as their pets. Perhaps that will be the novel we will all live, a world where the robotic lifeforms control the “peoplekind” in much the same way as we keep cats, dogs and other pets. Start working on that adorable puppy eye thing you do when you want a treat, it might become necessary to survive. Whatever you do, never let on you are capable of independent thought as that is to be squelched as who knows where such might lead. Any variance from groupthink will be punished and if persisted will be dealt with in a severe manner resulting in sitting all day drinking sweet tea or coffee at the corner coffee and tea shop watching the television broadcast and every time his image appears you will be heard if one listens closely to murmur, “I love Big Brother,” then returning to your coffee or tea and maybe even taking a small bite of your buttered croissant.
