Over there, over there
Send the word, send the word over there
That the Yanks are coming
The Yanks are coming
The drums rum tumming everywhere
So prepare, say a prayer
Send the word, send the word to beware
We'll be over, we're coming over
And we won't come back till it's over, over there
Yeah, meaning we’ll never come back. Orwell was the man, that’s for sure. How did he know? Smart dude. 1984 should be required reading for all of us, the powers that be certainly have read it, it is their bible.
“War is Peace” is one of the ubiquitous slogans in Orwell’s dystopia. Here is a bit about it from Study.com’s web article on the topic:
The first portion of the nation Oceania's slogan, war is peace, signifies one way that the government ensures its people will never rebel and always submit. In 1984, the country that Winston lives in, Oceania, is constantly at war with surrounding nations. The government notifies its citizens of this war every night during mass group meetings, and throughout the day via city speakers. However, this announcement constantly changes depending on with whom Oceania is at war. Yet, the constant principle, no matter the enemy, is that the war is being fought to attain peace. The war must be fought to maintain peace, says Big Brother, because it unites the nation against a common enemy. Members of Oceania were not able to see citizens of any other nation unless it was during war.
The quote from 1984, "Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past,” cements that—by manipulating the masses into thinking that they are constantly at war, Big Brother can unite individuals and distract them against a common enemy, even though they may not exist. Big Brother goes on to manipulate the past by saying that the nation has always been at war against the enemy in question.
I recently had a conversation with someone who said, “I know people are dying in Ukraine and Gaza, but I am not sure if either of those conflicts are real.” No, they are not real—not real in the way we define the word. They are similar to the wars in 1984 in that the reasons we are told for the fighting are not the truth. At the moment, I agree that people are dying, and lots of them. But that is just because it is more convenient to kill people at this time in history. It also lowers the global population a bit, which is, of course, one of the agenda’s primary goals. But although people are dying now, soon the wars the elites want us to believe are being fought will not require deaths. People will die only as long as it is convenient for them to die. For now, it’s convenient and the simplest way to accomplish their goal. And why not? It really doesn’t make any difference to them if people die or not.
