In George Orwell’s 1984, the world is ruled by “Big Brother” and his socialist regime. Individuals are property of the state and must serve its pleasure, able to own nothing: not even their own thoughts. Indeed, Big Brother seeks to eliminate “thought crime” through the use of “newspeak” and social conditioning exercises. Unfortunately, it seems that Atlas Shrugged is not the only prophetic work and that Big Brother may be coming to our own United States.
Comrade Obama, as all good socialists are addressed “comrade,” has issued this lovely bit of tyranny on the Whitehouse.gov site:
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, if you hear anyone speaking up against Obama’s socialist plans, report them for thought crime! (As an aside, this call to report your neighbor reminds me of the SS under Nazi [National Socialist] Germany). Interestingly, those who are “misinformed” or who are spreading “disinformation” are those that do not agree with Comrade Obama.
Frankly, it doesn’t surprise me that posters such as this:
As people are starting to see through Obama’s tricks and deceptions. It wouldn’t surprise me to start to see open rioting if this healthcare bill passes and we move deeper into socialism.
