Was Orwell Right-Is Ignorance Strength?

A lot of my writing efforts are devoted to helping people break out above mental barriers (the influence of establishment words that I also call codewords).

If we are to overcome the totalitarianism which every day increases its grip over the workaday crowd, we must break through to understanding code words and phrases that inhibit the thought patterns of the crowd. We must all achieve a totally different (true) perception of reality.

For any political system to function as created, there is and has to be vast deception. This statement is an entrĂ©e into original thought. Many will have to stop right here. It is beyond their capacity to grasp. But most longtime readers of Bob Livingston Alerts or The Bob Livingston Letter® will continue.

You who read on will understand when I reveal that George Orwell was correct. Ignorance is strength... for oppressive governments. We are in a vast concentration mind-control camp developed through and by years of external stimuli of "public" influence. We cannot think or inquire outside of our invisibly prescribed parameters — some people say "outside the box."

The backdrop of current events invisible to all is a massive psychological warfare against the American people by the elite in power for 200 years.

I love America but not the people who control America.

The public mind has no way to object to the bombardment of organized thought patterns that set up modified behavior and predictable responses. The dominant thoughts of the public mind are nothing more than a program created by authority. This is psychological warfare that produces the conformity of the human psyche.

Therefore, the purpose of the public and secondary education system and the mainstream media propaganda machine is not to produce inquiry but conformity. All invasion of the human mind by verbal signals is calculated to produce conformity.

There is such an avalanche of information bombarding the American people that it all has a mind-numbing effect. That, too, is by design. For the aim of the unseen powers is for the masses of people to believe essentially the same things.

The more generations that pass without open conflict with authority, the more the public mind conforms and the more the people and the government become one. Any "deviant" who questions authority is sure to encounter a hostile response from his friends and neighbors. He has defiled the Holy place.

Did you know that you may not meet more than a handful of people in your life who are alert to the false belief system of the millions out there? And while the Donald Trump campaign had stirred an awakening among the people after the Tea Party was destroyed by the establishment Republican War Party, that awakening is far from manifest even years later now, as evidenced by the hostile reaction that comes from Trumpsters whenever the slightest criticism of Trump is uttered or written.

But even after people begin to see through the maze of propaganda it sometimes takes years for it all to come into full focus so that complete understanding can be achieved. Then you discover how different you are from your neighbor and old acquaintances.

The discovery of this difference makes most people become uneasy about their convictions because of the loneliness that they experience and their inability to share common sense reality with friends who will respond to the new information presented to them by shutting off communication

It is essential to your liberty that you understand that propaganda in our time is super powerful. No matter the formal education or lack thereof, most Americans are just downright ignorant about the reality of their personal relationship to the government.

Americans have suffered under an ever more abusive and ever-growing government for many years. The rates of abuse and growth have accelerated exponentially since the 9/11 attacks and the 2008 economic collapse. It has been fueled by both Republicans and Democrats. It spawned the original Tea Party movement (as I mentioned, co-opted by the Republican Party).

On July 6, 1775, the Continental Congress issued a "Declaration of the Causes and Necessities of Taking up Arms," authored by Thomas Jefferson and John Dickinson. One of Jefferson’s lines was: "Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them."

This includes the mental bondage we suffer right now. One of the fastest ways to clear the mental fog of political nonsense is to realize that the two-party political system is a fallacy. Both parties are working toward a common goal. Anyone clinging to the illusion will be deceived to his grave.

Yours for the truth,

You’ve got 2 hours until disaster strikes. Are you prepared?

If you’ve watched any apocalyptic movie ever, you’re familiar with the grocery store scene. You know which one I’m talking about. Anxious dad rushes isle by isle gathering water and canned food for his family while everyone around him gradually turns from innocent customer to aggressive looter.

 In this scenario, shelves are emptied quickly, and the store turns into a war zone. In the next scene, dad finds a store that has managed to keep control of their stock but has become absurdly greedy, inflating prices and heartlessly bartering family heirlooms in place of the now useless cash...
