“You are a flaw in the pattern, Winston. You are a stain that must be wiped out. Did I note tell you just now that we are different from the persecutors of the past? We are not content with negative obedience, nor even with the most abject submission. When finally you surrender to us, it must be of your own free will.
“We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us; so long as he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. Even in the instant of death we cannot permit any deviation. In the old days the heretic walked to the take still a heretic, proclaiming his heresy, exulting in it . . . But we make the brain perfect before we blow it out
“The command of the old despotisms was ‘ Thou shalt not.’ The command of the totalitarians was ‘Thou shalt.’ Our command is ‘Thou art.’ No one whom we bring to the place ever stands out against us. Everyone is washed clean . . . By the time we had finished with them they were only the shells of men. There was nothing left in them except sorrow for what they had done, and love of Big Brother. It was touching to see how they loved him. They begged to be shot quickly, so that they could die while their minds were still clean.”
This is a passage from 1984, but I urge you to compare it to the “woke” demands today. Change Winston’s name to yours. Switch out Big Brother to the Woke Party or Black Lives Matter.
George Orwell was not a prophet, but his predictions ring true because he understood totalitarianism and the communists of his day.
Because those ideologies in practice are rooted in Marxism, 1984 reads like non-fictional futurism wherever Marxist regimes begin to take hold.
Big Brother was Marxist. Black Lives Matter is Marxist. Totalitarian governments – both communist and fascist – are Marxist. They are wicked and evil. Marxism is satanic.
Marxism is right now dominating our universities, media, sports leagues, and politicians.
1984 is happening right now in America, just as it did in the USSR during the 1940s-80s and in China since the 1960s.
The Bible predicted the breakdown of civilization and civil unrest around the globe. This chaos will usher in the Antichrist to broker peace (Daniel 8:25).
We are here, folks, whether you want to believe it or not. Daniel’s 70th week – otherwise known as the Tribulation – is approaching quickly. You need to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9-13) right now before it is too late.
