"Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile...but sooner or later they were bound to get you." George Orwell, 1984 "The fact is we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability â€” the right â€” to think or speak for one's self. Thinking is becoming a crime." (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese, Address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference, 10/16/09)
During his commencement address at Harvard in the 1970s, ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn warned that America was tilting toward evil. Americans â€” specifically the bipartisan (left/right) atheist Progressive ruling class and intelligentsia â€” have rejected the supernatural Triune God said Solzhenitsyn, and have embraced instead, evolutionary scientistic-socialism....the politics of genocide and destruction. America is on the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians, said Solzhenitsyn.
Ominously, America increasingly resembles the now dead Marxist Communist Soviet Union, unarguably one of the most evil regimes in the history of mankind.
Though Marxist Communism billed itself as scientific and of course evolutionary it was in fact a messianic Gnostic Manichean cult colored by Buddhist nihilism. In action this meant that Gnostic God-haters were attempting to â€œscientificallyâ€ annihilate the Christian conception of man made in the spiritual image of the Triune God and replace that with a Buddhist conception of a collective unconscious, a quiet type of pantheism.
Central to this attempt was absolute mind control. This being the case, scientifically-engineered "New Soviet Man" was no longer an individual soul/spirit with a mind of his own but rather an impersonal part of the collective unconscious for whom the Party (Orwellâ€™s Big Brother) was the One-Mind.
Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Marxist-Communist Soviet Union refused to â€œloseâ€ his individual soul/spirit and was as a result accused of and made to suffer for his non-conformist thought.
Sharansky describes the Soviet Union as a spiritual tyranny where,
â€œthere were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately.â€ (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)
As a result of psychological and physical terror-tactics-â€” torture, beatings, redefining of the meaning of words, loss of meaning, propaganda of the lie, re-education, hate crime laws, speech codes, and other mind-control tactics, almost everyone became double thinkers.
To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers:
â€œeverybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion.â€
But it is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth. These people said Sharansky,
â€œlive with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many donâ€™t even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves.â€
Note that many self-censoring Christians and Americans in general automatically side with abortion, sodomy, lesbianism, transgenderism, evolutionism, job quotas and set asides, perverse sex-education, 'gay' marriage and racially-motivated university admission standards despite that these things are contrary to Biblical doctrine, reality, the Rule of Law and the Constitution. They hate what Big Brother hates and profess acceptance of everything Big Brother declares politically correct.
To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the â€œtown square test.â€ In this test if you,
â€œcan go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free societyâ€ even though that society may not be just." If thought police punish you "for your views you live in a fear society,â€ said Sharansky.
If you cannot defend one-man-one-woman monogamous marriage, the Ten Commandments, God the Father, the Rule of Law, Natural Law, second amendment rights, private property or be pro-life without character assassins shaming, ridiculing, rebuking,and otherwise psychologically terrorizing you then you live in a fear-based society.
Sharansky adds that in such societies there are always three types of population:
1. True believers who accept Big Brothers ideology 2. dissidents, who take risks to speak truth to lies 3. double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about Big Brothers' official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly.
Sharansky concludes that the level,
â€œof dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is.â€
Measured by Sharanskysâ€™ town-square test we can see that America has been descending into a fear-based society for over eighty years. Already we can see the three types of population.
1. True believers. Among this group are those who, for example, accept evolutionism as a fact and disbelieve in their own souls. In general, true-believers are the thought-police who psychologically terrorize the large body of fearful double-thinkers. True-believers are rabid zealots, brazen liars, and rebels against all authority. They freely destroy, transgress, scoff, demean, blaspheme, and demonize.
2. As noted previously, double-thinkers are all self-censoring Christians and Americans in general
3. The few who dare to speak truth to lies
There is one other group of people-â€”Big Brother---also known as the Westâ€™s Progressive â€˜elites.â€™ The real evil comes from within this group.
Sharansky said that when a â€œfear society disappears or becomes weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel.â€ And this is "...such a big relief.â€
Our fear-based society will not weaken and disappear until enough Americans find the courage to boldly speak truth to lies. It is said that courage is the first of the virtues because without it fear paralyzes man, keeping him from acting upon his moral convictions and speaking truth. Thus bringing about a general state of paralyzing fear, apathy, and submission-the chains of tyranny-is the purpose behind psychopolitical terrorism, for the atheist Progressive 'elite' agenda must, at all costs, be clothed in darkness.
The antidote is courage and the light of truth. Truth and the courage to speak it will set us free. (Cultural Marxism, Kimball,
