    "Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right."

    George Orwell, 1984

    The day is coming when they'll condemn Orwell as a 'fascist', if they haven't done so already.

    this means we can't look back at history and learn from past mistakes. this is not a good thing IMHO.

    We the people would be doing what needs to be done, but we fear prosecution for patriotic behavior. Once we feel we have nothing to lose it will be a mess. Many without jobs will reach this point soon.

    Since there’s no history, we’re not doomed to repeat it !

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy are open to renaming Army bases that are named after Confederate leaders, the Army said Monday.

    "The secretary of Defense and secretary of the Army are open to a bipartisan discussion on the topic," an Army spokesman said.

    There are 10 Army bases around the country named for Confederate heroes: Fort Lee, Fort Hood, Fort Benning, Fort Gordon, Fort Bragg, Fort Polk, Fort Pickett, Fort A.P. Hill, Fort Rucker and Camp Beauregard.

    I remember reading 1984 back in the 1970's and thinking this stuff happens in brutal totalitarian regimes like the USSR and China but could never happen here. Boy was I wrong

    Thanks for your sarcasm. That's exactly my concern.

    "Gone with the Wind" won't be available on HBO...because "it promotes the slavery". Perhaps we should round up and burn all the remaining recordings of this movie? March around the fire?

    I have wondered if Eric Arthur Blair merely possessed a keen insight, or if he was truly a prophet.

    What is happening now reminds me of the Maoist revolution in the sixties and up to the seventies in China. They removed artifacts from museums, tore down statues, and changed the names on street signs.
