Those who control language control society.
How many of you Prager devotees have actually read George Orwell’s instruction manual on leftwing State Socialist dictatorship, “1984″? Do you remember the significance of language control, not only what is censored, but what information is manufactured, who or what is demonized, which groups are to be hated, which groups are to disappear from past, present and future? Do you remember the vital importance of Newspeak in the world of Big Brother? Not only the state orchestrated reduction of public vocabulary, but the importance of deconstruction and redefinition of words once central to understanding individual thought and action? Do you remember “1984″?
If you were Winston Smith of Orwell’s Communist era dictatorship, and you did remember reading the essence of “1984″ and took note of it, you would have, by that very act of memory and note, committed your own death sentence.
“Great civilizations are not murdered. They commit suicide.”
The suicide America has already been committing over the last generation emanates from the ever growing corruption in its educational institutions. Countless numbers of its priests befoul truth and understanding. They practice bigotry in the name of rights. They deconstruct knowledge to obliterate the past. They destroy adulthood and breed dependence. They replace thoughtful inquiry with hysteria, fear, and hate. They prepare America for the arrival of the Liberal Know Betters who believe that through their superior wisdoms, they know exactly what is better for you, the underling and unwashed.
The Left has always toyed with language. Its propagandists usually spin off the idea of “peace”. Women are particularly intoxicated by the word and always have been. The primary human female goal in life is security, comfort, peace. Women do not sacrifice themselves for freedom. American men don’t seem to anymore, either…except those special defenders of the faith in the military. Today, most Americans obey their leftist learnings. They feel themselves “above” sacrifice. They slur the military. But, American men, in times when the country sustained its religious and moral values, as did men of all healthy civilizations before them, sacrificed themselves again and again for freedom.
The Left monopolizes the word “peace” because everyone who opposes them must then be enemies or compromisers of peace. It becomes essential, then, to expand the meaning of peace to include all of the good things the Marxist society needs to control its people.
The Party of Peace is for health, comfort, contentment, neighborliness, goodness, always in the key of “C” or the trance of a drum beat…no harsh chords, and no melody…monotones are the best, for then, the people can’t argue which monotone is more winsome. Everyone cooperates. Marxist opponents are silenced, alive or dead. No one would dare know an opponent, much less dare to talk to one. Eventually, no one would know what “opponent” would mean.
To learn Marxist techniques of education and thought control in contemporary America, we must again refer to David Horowitz’s new book, “One Party Classroom”. Let’s return to politicized training at the University of Missouri, “The Peace Studies Program.” The title of this left wing madrassa, is “The Social Construction of Cruelty” (If one is critical of the class and its content, it stands to leftwing reason, that such a person practices violence and hatred, and must be a “Prager conservative” or similar hateful creature enjoying cruelty.)
The mission statement for the Peace Studies Program is as follows:
Peace, it states, “is more than the absence of war. It is also the presence of justice. Peace is providing the basic necessities of life for every human being; eliminating violence, oppression, greed and environmental destruction; and working through conflict at home, at work and between nations.”
Read the mission statement again. You may wish to digress for a moment of relief. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath……While recovering, open your dictionary. What are these pundits at the University of Missouri doing to the English you were taught?…Maybe the idea you once understood, that words have meaning, no longer has meaning? How did your dictionary define peace? The professors might have you believe your dictionary is wrong. What grade would you receive on your term paper or as final for the class, if you did not accept the breadths of the new meanings these Marxists have discovered? Imagine the fervor of the leftist educated suburban high school student or the racist inner city school student enrolled in the class. Welcome to a Liberal education in the year 2009.
Those who control language, control society.
