These days I seem obsessed by George Orwell.. The details he brought in 1947 to describe how the world would be by the year 1984, in the famous homonymous book, and the documents he elaborated in support of his account; do not seem as the fanciful imaginations of a talented writer.. It could be more than probable that Mr. Orwell have seen, read and analysed enough plans and intelligence material to force his intellectual ego into writing his master pieces and try to warn us from the dark future awaiting all human kind.. A future with no ideas.. Just the global dictatorship of Information Technology.
Maybe that’s why he said: “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past”!
I’ll give you just one example to demonstrate this theory of mine.. Have a look at the following World Map of the world according to Orwell’s vision in his book 1984.
The map predicts that in a future 1984, some 40 years from the now 1947/8, the influence zones would look like this.
So if you would put on top of this map a transparency of Russia, USA, NATO and Europe’s Military and Naval Bases active around the world today, you’ll discover that they all surround the central ‘parallelogram’ and the south pole both indicated as the Disputed Zone.. No wonder that both areas are extremely rich in natural resources like water, oil, gas, gold, diamond, radio-active and other valuable minerals.Now, have another close look at the next figure representing the ECHELON satellites coverage over the globe along with their land receiving stations as they are today distributed on earth, and I’m sure you’ll come out with the conclusion that it is meant to maintain a Technological edge to have more control on Information.
Should you add the latest interceptions scandals known by the name of the “NSA PRISM Affair”, then you’ll be convinced, as I am, that Orwell did not invent the whole story.. He saw it cooking in the pot, and he rightfully thought that his duty as an intellectual, before being an employee of MI6 engaged to analyse data and pictures, was to INFORM.
And that’s just what he did.. Only we didn’t receive his warnings.. And the very few who felt alarmed and spoke openly trying to pass on the message, weren’t lucky enough.. Because unfortunately, people like to be adulated rather than educated (copyright George Orwell).
