Subliminal Marketing ★ George Orwell and the Big Brother (the Modern Dictatorship).
ON MASS BEHAVIORISM
A group especially for Dissidence and Dissidents, for Free Speech, for Orwell's admirers and those who note and want to understand how much deep is Masses Manipulation in human societies.
Orwell's great novels, and especially "1984", show the way Totalitarian Psychology manipulates, presses and bets people in order to make an inactive stupid plebean Mass.
~♫~ Invisible, Modern or Mass Media Dictatorship according to Orwell is now a reality through massive manipulation (Mass Behaviorism). Power only has diversified its branches into Society and hidden its more totalitarian looks in a process towards superficiality (Gossip, Mass Sports...) in order to get difficult a faithful perception what is happening and Power needs to disguise.
"The new military strategy will be to regulate, control, and manipulate the media” (Alvin Toffler, 1928, Scientific Essayist USA)
Be sure when Mass Media are speaking about "our modern democracy", etc., etc. is only pure cynism and manipulation.
"Liberty is telling people what they do not want to hear” (from a preface to "Animal Farm")
"Parsons was Winston's fellow employee at the Ministry of Truth. He was a fattish but active man of paralyzing stupidity, a mass of imbecile enthusiasms—one of those completely unquestioning, devoted drudges on whom, more even than on the thought police, the stability of the Party depended" "The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons—a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting—three hundred million people all with the same face" ("1984", George Orwell)
“The established powers tend towards the control, unification, and psychological exploitation of their subjects” ("Moral i Nova Cultura" / "Moral and New Culture", by Xavier Rubert de Ventós, Catalan Philosopher)
"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed —if all records told the same tale— then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'" ("1984", Book 1, Chapter 3, George Orwell)
