To Orwell Today,
Do u see the American left as promoting a 1984 type society?
Raymond D. Smith, Ph.D.
In America and elsewhere there is no difference between "left" and "right" (communist and capitalist) political systems and there's nothing in the middle (socialism). It's all "oligarchical collectivism" as described by Orwell in 1984. I refer to it as CORPORATE COMMUNISM.
Neither the left OR the right openly promote a 1984 type of society but in practice that is exactly what they're setting up. Orwell called the deviation from what they SAID to what they DID "doublethink" and it's behind the three main slogans:
"WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH"
which I explain in the essay IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM WE'RE ENSLAVED.
All the best,
