Huxley Is Much Scarier

________________________

What Orwell feared were those who’d ban books. What Huxley feared was that there’d be no reason to ban a book… for no one would want to read one. Orwell feared those who’d deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who’d give us so much that it’d reduce us to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared we’d become a captive audience. Huxley feared a sea of irrelevance would drown the truth. Orwell feared that we’d become a captive culture. Huxley feared we’d become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions”. In Brave New World, they control by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate would ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love would ruin us.

Now might be an appropriate time to commemorate the memory of MEDGAR EVERS, and remind people that race is a myth and not something real. Racism is a denial of God, a denial that God created ALL of humanity. Racism isn’t only heresy; it’s blasphemy.

Our Lord Christ became incarnate to save PEOPLE… NOT property! A single life is precious in God’s eyes… a million bucks ain’t worth stale cat piss in His estimation, I’m told. Reflect on that the next time that you hear bloviators like Chilly Hilly or Ted Cruz gas away…

One last thing… Red Che was TEN TIMES more into REAL Pro-Life than Ted Cruz is… if you kick the poor so that you can give more bucks to the greedy rich, you’re NOT Pro-Life, and that’s that…
