Propaganda, Gaslighting, Framing, Cancel Culture

Wo es keine Marktwirtschaft gibt, sind alle gesetzlichen Garantien der Freiheitsrechte wertlos. Was soll Pressefreiheit in einem Lande, in dem alle Druckereien von der Regierung verwaltet werden? Oder Versammlungsfreiheit, wenn alle Versammlungshallen Regierungseigentum sind?

— Ludwig von Mises

Propaganda, Gaslighting, Framing, Cancel Culture

“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.”

Aldous Huxley (Brave New World)

 

“There was always a minority afraid of something, and a great majority afraid of the dark, afraid of the future, afraid of the past, afraid of the present, afraid of themselves and shadows of themselves

Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451)

 

“There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people run­ning about with lit matches.”

Ray Bradbury

 

“I wasn’t worried about freedom, I was worried about people being turned into morons by TV…the moronic influence of popular culture through local TV news and the proliferation of giant screens and the bombardment of factoids.

Ray Bradbury

 

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving. And they’ll be happy, because facts of that sort don’t change.

Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

 

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.

George Orwell (1984)

 

“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”

George Orwell, 1984

 

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

Aldous Huxley (Brave New World)

 

“So long as they (the Proles) continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern…Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.”

George Orwell (1984)
