It's enough to make you wonder if he had special powers...
This footage from a 2003 BBC docudrama about George Orwell’s life and works is so true, it’s terrifying. Some of the great author and activist’s final words on how he envisaged the future are very well known, but this clip is fantastic for gathering all his thoughts in one place (and sharing them with anyone who is still snoozing).
Orwell predicts there will be “No emotions except fear, rage, triumph and self abasement.” He goes on to prophesize that “the sex instinct will be eradicated and we shall abolish the orgasm.” Sound weird? Britain has just banned pornographic activities that cause female pleasure, while anti-depressants and other pharmaceutical drugs are known to stifle sex drive. As a side note, Terence McKenna once famously said, “If they could make sex illegal, they would.” They’re probably working on that one…
Orwell also says “there will be no loyalty except loyalty to the party [state] and always there will be the intoxication of power. The thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy that is helpless.”
He finishes by saying: “If you want a picture of the future , imagine a boot stamping on a human face…forever. The moral to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: Don’t let it happen. It depends on you.”
It certainly does. Please share!
