The Orwellian Paradigm

LITERATURE - George Orwell

NSA surveillance goes beyond Orwell's imagination

"The Orwellian ambition to render language incapable of even expressing the concept "freedom" has nearly been fulfilled. Not by eliminating the Word, but by converting it into an Image, an empty shell, a brand." - Charles Eisenstein

During times of universal deceit,
telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

20 Modern Doublespeak Terms to be Aware Of

War is Peace/Freedom is Slavery/Ignorance is Strength

Doublespeak or doubletalk can be defined as a mixture of sensible terms and unfamiliar terms or familiar terms used in an unfamiliar context.

The art of doublespeak is to provide what listeners want or expect to hear in an illusory form so that it readily becomes accepted as real communication.

People are most susceptible to doublespeak or doubletalk when they distractedly listen to a radio or television announcer.

Native Americans recognized it as inherent in Western civilization.

"Dr. Myron Fox" is hired to present a contrived topic using doublespeak, " Mathematical Game Theory As Applied To Physician Education."

He successfully deceived his audience of psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators using buzz words, doubletalk and non sequiturs.

An ostensibly knowledgeable individual, presenting an aggressive demeanor, can overwhelm listeners even though in essence he says absolutely nothing.

Obama is a good example. So is Donald Trump. Biden is obvious.

Even though professionals understood nothing, they were impressed.

The actor fooled three audiences of professional and graduate students.

Despite the emptiness of his lecture, fifty-five psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators, graduate students, and other professionals produced evaluations of Dr. Fox that were overwhelmingly positive.

The most disturbing feature of the Dr. Fox study is that the actor' nonverbal behaviors masked a meaningless, jargon-filled and confusing presentation.

"Selling" the individual as an authority by being impressive without giving an adequate understanding of the subject was the purpose of this exercise.

This is a form of psycholinguist programming.

It is interesting to note how easily these academically qualified licensed professionals could be mislead by a slick authoritive presentation involving eloquent nonsensical language.

Dr. Fox used the cognitive bias of the professionals in two ways:

Individuals engaged in a specialty profession descend into the terminology of their speciality which may largely exclude a wider public understanding.

It is virtually imposible to cross check the last statement with all the previous statements spontaneously - especially if the words are unfamilar and the brain is engaged in comparitive analytics searching for word definitons.

Only one logical thought thread can be followed at a time.

Enthralled by a logical rabbit hole seemingly obvious connections evaporate.

Victims engaged in analysis of the con literally become dumbfounded.

These same academics looking at the words on a page like this would be able to quickly cross check within this work as well as across the architecture of the internet to verify the truth or falsity of the content within a short time.

If the questioniare came 24 hours later it is likely that, upon reflection, anyone that actually pondered the words would recognize the deception.

Silver tongued saleswomen is the reason for that many jurisdictions have "Buyer's Remorse" clauses in consumer contracts.

Neurolinguist programming is used by brand marketers to subconsciously implant predetermined actions under the proper stimuli just as dogs were taught to salivate at the ringing of the bell by Pavlov.

A poor but intelligent speaker can say a great deal in an unimpressive manner, while an eloquent speaker may say nothing flamboyantly.

Confidence men, salesmen, learn how to say nothing impressively.

In this way, you can learn to be impressed or unimpressed with exactly what someone says, not with credentials or position in life.

Learning to give individual thought to what is heard, instead of just allowing emotional reaction or attempting a witty reply, is important to understand anything and KNOW how you understand.

By questioning what you hear and read, regardless of source, thinking on subjects will sharpen and decisions on correctness will become discerning.

Animal Farm

Thug Notes Summary and Analysis

A Final Warning from George Orwell

The short novella is an allegory in which animals play Bolshevik revolutionaries and overthrow and oust the human owners of the farm, setting it up as a commune in which, at first, all animals are equal; however, class and status disparities soon emerge between the different animal species.

The novel describes how ideologies can be twisted by those in positions of social and political power, including how a utopian society is literally made impossible by the corrupting nature of the very power necessary to create it.

1950 Louis de Rochemont produces a movie version of the tale in the British animation studio of husband and wife John Halas and Joy Batchelor.

Most of the funding came from a CIA shell corporation, Touchstone.

E. Howard Hunt was one of those agents involved in the production of the film whose role was to remove the socialist elements in Orwell's allegory.

Classical and Operant Conditioning

Learning Is a Learned Behavior

"Mankind will possess incalculable advantages and extraordinary control over human behavior when the scientific investigator will be able to subject his fellow men to the same external analysis he would employ for any natural object, and when the human mind will contemplate itself not from within but from without."

"Any rational action must have a certain aim.

It is rational in the same degree as it pursues its aim consciously and consistently, and as it determines its means according to this end.

To choose the end is therefore the first thing we have to do if we wish to act rationally; and we must be careful to determine our real or ultimate ends.

These principles, if applied to the realm of political activity, demand that we must determine our ultimate political aim before taking any practical action.

Only when this ultimate aim is determined, a rough outline for a blueprint of the society at which we aim, can we begin to consider the best ways and means for its realization, and to draw up a plan for practical action.

These are the necessary preliminaries of any practical political move that can be called rational, and especially in Utopian social engineering.

The piecemeal (social) engineer will fight against the greatest and most urgent evils of society, rather than fighting for its greatest ultimate good.

It is the difference between a reasonable method of improving the lot of man, and a method which may lead to an intolerable increase in human suffering.

The piecemeal (social) engineer can claim that a systematic fight against suffering and injustice and war is more likely to be supported by the approval and agreement of a great number of people than the fight for the establishment of some ideal." " - Karl Popper


"The public relations counsel is necessary to social work.

As social service, by its very nature, can continue only by means of the voluntary support of the wealthy, it is obliged to use propaganda continually.

The leaders in social service were among the first consciously to utilize propaganda in its modern sense." - Edward Bernays, Propaganda

1936 John Dewey Society formed with the twofold purpose of conducting research in the field of education and promoting the educational philosophy of John Dewey.

Dewey understood human beings learn through a 'hands-on' approach.

Pragmatists know that reality must be experienced to be understood.

From Dewey's educational point of view, this means that students must interact with their environment in order to adapt and learn.

1950 Intercollegiate Socialist Society is rebranded League for Industrial Democracy.

"The broad study which called our attention to the activities of these organizations has revealed not only their support by foundations, but has disclosed a degree of coöperation between them which they have referred to as "an interlock," thus indicating a concentration of influence and power.

They are bound by a common interest rather than a source for capital funds.

It is difficult to study their relationship without confirming this.

Likewise, it is difficult to avoid the feeling that their common interest has led them to coöperate closely with one another and that this common interest lies in the planning and control of certain aspects of American life through a combination of the Federal Government and education.

This may explain why the foundations have played such an active role in the promotion of the social sciences, why they have favored the employment of social scientists by the government, and why they seem to have used their influence to transform education into an instrument for social change."


"For this finding to prove useful, it is necessary to define the public interest, found in the principles and forms expressed in the Constitution.

Subsequent studies were made by the staff of the size, the scope, the form, and the functions of the government for the period 1903-53, the results of which are set forth in detail in the report by Thomas M. McNiece, assistant research director, labeled "The Economics of the Public Interest."

These original studies of the public interest disclose that during the 4 years 1933-36 a drastic change took place which constituted a revolution.

Responsibility for the economic welfare of the American people had been transferred to the executive branch of the government, a corresponding change in education had taken place from an impetus outside of the local community, and this revolution had occurred without violence and with full consent of an overwhelming majority of the electorate.

In seeking to explain this unprecedented phenomenon, subsequent studies clearly showed it could not have occurred peacefully or with the consent of the electorate without educational associations advance endorsement.

These findings appeared to justify two postulates;

the policies and practices of institutions obliged by statute to serve the public interest reflect this phenomenon,

foundations whose trustees were empowered to make grants for educational purposes would be no exception.

On the basis of these, after consultation with counsel, I directed the staff to explore foundation practices, educational procedures, and the operation of the executive branch of the government since 1903 for reasonable evidence of a purposeful relationship between them.

Our ensuing studies disclosed such a relationship and that it had existed continuously since the beginning of this 50-year period.

In addition, these studies seemed to give evidence of a response to our involvement in international affairs.

Likewise, they seemed to reveal that grants had been made by foundations, chiefly by Carnegie and Rockefeller, which had been used to further this purpose by directing education in the US toward an international frame of reference and discrediting the traditions to which it had been dedicated.

This was done by training individuals and servicing agencies to render advice to the executive branch of the government to decrease the dependency of education upon the resources of the local community, and freeing it from many of the natural safeguards inherent in this American tradition.

By changing both school and college curricula to the point where they sometimes denied the principles underlying the American Way of the Life, by financing experiments designed to determine the most effective means by which education could be pressed into service of a political nature.

To insure these determinations being made on the basis of impersonal fact, I directed the staff to make a study of the development of American education since the turn of the century, and of the trends and techniques of teaching.

As a result it became evident this study would have to be enlarged to include accessory agencies to which these developments and trends have been traced.

The work of the staff was then expanded to include an investigation of such agencies as American Council of Learned Societies, National Research Council, Social Science Research Council, American Council on Education, National Education Association, the League for Industrial Democracy, Progressive Education Association, American Historical Association, John Dewey Society, and Antidefamation League.

'True believers' get ahead at work

The select committee of the 82nd Congress did not ask the representatives of the foundations to explain why they were indulging in propaganda, in view of large grants to organizations and projects promoting special interests.

These representatives were also not requested to explain activities of foundations which are, in fact, influencing legislation, inasmuch as their grants frequently have an outright political objective.

Large foundations have a tremendous influence on our country.

These foundations, possessing huge sums of untaxed wealth, are dedicated to promoting specific views on such matters as the welfare state, the United Nations, American foreign policy, the nature of the American economy, rather than presenting objective and unbiased examination of these issues.

Extensive evidence that I have examined shows that organizations which are primarily committed to a given ideology have received large grants from some big foundations over many years, and in numerous instances they have received such grants simultaneously from different foundations.

The assets of the large foundations are tax exempt and, therefore, ought to be spent on projects and organizations representing the views of all of the people and not only of a segment dedicated to a specific ideology.

Since the activities of some of the large foundations appear to be biased in favor of an ideology, in reality they are indulging in propaganda calculated to influence legislation on both domestic and international matters.

Under such circumstances, these foundations are violating their charters given to them by the US Congress and are betraying a public trust.

In the realm of the social sciences many foundations have not observed the highest standards of scholarship and ethics, which require the presentation of only factual and unslanted material.

In fact, the want of ethics and the misrepresentations of some foundations are so low that a business corporation doing the same thing would be condemned by the Federal Trade Commission and held guilty of false advertising." - Norman Dodd

"Give me a child and I'll shape him into anything."

BF Skinner

a mind altering device

'2 more minutes' makes ending screen time worse

"A school's curriculum is a mind altering device.

A school's curriculum is a means through which children's minds are shaped with ideas and beliefs. What we teach the young is extremely important.

Arts teach children to exercise that most exquisite of capacities, the ability to make judgements in the absence of rules.

Existing primary public education emphasizes fealty to rules.

The rules that the arts obey are located in our children's emotional interior.

Children come to feel a rightness of fit among the materials they work.

There is no rule book to provide recipes or algorithms to calculate conclusions. They must exercise judgement by looking inside themselves.

The arts also teach that neither words nor numbers define the limits of our cognition; we know more than we can tell.

There are many experiences and a multitude of occasions in which we need art forms to say what literal language cannot say." - Elliot W. Eisner, professor of education and art at Stanford University

Current educational systems were designed by foundations set up by industrialists to inculcate children into their roles in the industrialized factories, business' and institutions of an industrialized America.

Based on the philosophy of materialistic pragmatism Prussian children are taught to follow instructions mechanically and live by the bell.

This dark tunnel vision of instruction cleaves the brain in two.
