Oliver Stone: “1984 Is Here”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered…History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the party is always right” — George Orwell
We’ve been keeping an eye on the insanity oozing out of the States over the last week. Not surprisingly, Oliver Stone has produced one of the most succinct, on-point commentaries about Charlottesville and the resulting madness.
Sorry, but we just don’t buy this idea that fighting (apparently to the death) over Confederate statues is a top priority for most Americans right now. No doubt it serves as a convenient and extremely lame ideological battle for weirdos on the far, far right and far, far left to salivate over. Meanwhile, the military-industrial security state is celebrating with hooker-and-champagne bubble baths as new excuses are created to gut the Bill of Rights and pit debt slaves who want to have a beer with Hillary Clinton against debt slaves who want to have a beer with Donald Trump.
