Media-driven political insanity - Joanna Rosamond




by Joanna Rosamond

 One can’t help but notice how visionary Orwell’s writing was: “[s]o much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot.”


Psycholinguistics and cognitive science have long been interested in linguistic relativity – the concept that language influences way of thinking.  George Orwell, the author of Nineteen Eighty-Four, also considered: “But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.”  In the dystopian novel, Orwell depicted a totalitarian state using controlled language and “thoughtcrime” charges to keep people from thinking.  Throughout history, real-life dictatorships have been known to “pre-define” reality via meaningless slogans, political correctness, and punishment of cerebral dissent.

The fact that several months before elections we are constantly told that a candidate has already won definitely rings an alarm bell.  Orwellian “Newspeak” morphed today into NewsSpeak, with the mainstream media acting as thought police.  While we are being nonchalantly reminded about a long list of observable crimes that go unpunished, the media cheer those crimes’ authors and try to contaminate us with the “enthusiasm.”  One can’t help but notice how visionary Orwell’s writing was: “[s]o much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot.”

Where did ol’ good logic go?  The processes used in thinking and reasoning should be natural to homo sapiens, and it’s impossible not to have a brain-ache when you clearly see that it´s not the case.

The “asylum seekers” kill us – so lets keep the door open.  Obama brought war – lets give him a Peace Prize.  Hillary Clinton has a long rap sheet, so shes free to present herself in presidential elections.  How sane is this?

If you feel like it (yes you can!), talk about “white trash” – its not supposed to be offensive.  But do not pay attention to the sleaziest antics of political Hilly Bills.  Be careful: they have experience with guys “off the reservation.”

Lets cut to the chase: look at “before” and “after” Obama.  If you hate the “transformation,” have a shot of Kool-Aid and vote Hillary Clinton, because she wants to get elected.

In recent years, we have seen what happens when the most sacred of our values are tampered with, when our own money is used against our interests, and when politicians play human chess.  The adepts of Alinsky proved that they take his teachings very seriously: “[t]he organizer is in a true sense reaching for the highest level for which man can reach – to create, to be a ‘great creator,’ to play God.”  The students have outdone the master, but unfortunately they overdosed on Rule 5 and turned the arm against themselves: “Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.

Human history has proven that the reign of political correctness, coercion, and no matter how big of a lie always comes to an end; the question is not “if,” but “when.”  Will elections be enough to say “enough”?  One thing is sure: when it comes to accountability for “disorganizing” the world, pleading political insanity wont be enough.
