The Future Of The Spectacle... Or How The West Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Reality Police

Authored (satirically) by CJ Hopkins via Off-Guardian.org,

If you want a vision of the future, don’t imagine “a boot stamping on a human face — for ever,” as Orwell suggested in 1984. Instead, imagine that human face staring mesmerized into the screen of some kind of nifty futuristic device on which every word, sound, and image has been algorithmically approved for consumption by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (“DARPA”) and its “innovation ecosystem” of “academic, corporate, and governmental partners.”

The screen of this futuristic device will offer a virtually unlimited range of “non-divisive” and “hate-free” content, none of which will falsify or distort the “truth,” or in any way deviate from “reality.”

Western consumers will finally be free to enjoy an assortment of news, opinion, entertainment, and educational content (like this Guardian podcast about a man who gave birth, or MSNBC’s latest bombshell about Donald Trump’s secret Russian oligarch backers) without having their enjoyment totally ruined by discord-sowing alternative journalists like Aaron Maté or satirists like myself.

“Fake news” will not appear on this screen. All the news will be “authentic.” DARPA and its partners will see to that. You won’t have to worry about being “influenced” by Russians, Nazis, conspiracy theorists, socialists, populists, extremists, or whomever.

Persons of Malicious Intent will still be able to post their content (because of “freedom of speech” and all that stuff), but they will do so down in the sewers of the Internet where normal consumers won’t have to see it.

Anyone who ventures down there looking for it (i.e., such “divisive” and “polarizing” content) will be immediately placed on an official DARPA watchlist for “potential extremists,” or “potential white supremacists,” or “potential Russians.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what about Christian Pacifist Activists, like myself, who never advocate violence, but gently and logically ask their government to find ways of resolving geopolitical conflicts without resorting to war?!?!?

When will we get pulled into the ghettos of the non-politically correct, for the rest of our natural lives?!? When those attempting to tell the truth, albeit hard for most Americans to swallow (like the US enabling of Saudi troops in Yemen, slaughtering thousands of non-combatants in a continuing "killing field" which targets infants; women;and the medically fragile elderly), what happens then?!?

When telling the truth has become an illegal act, it should be crystal clear, even to most thick-headed Americans, that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, has made the last, and definitive step, into that dark realm called "soft dictatorship", from which it can never recover.

In fact, we are almost there right now.

And if you have never seen the director's cut of Terry Gilliam's "Brazil", please buy it; because, folks, this is precisely where this country has been heading, and for quite a long time. Gilliam is not only a brilliant film maker; in this, he was also truly a prophet.
