'Garrett is as Garrett does'

‘We are one people. With one will. One resolve.’

Every time I hear a politician or a religious pundit tell me what I should do, I tend to filter them out.  Then  ask myself why would people want listen?  Then I remember the vision of ‘Big Brother’ from the Apple ‘1984’ commercial :

“For today we celebrate the first, glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directive! We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology, where each worker may bloom secure from the pests of contradictory and confusing truths. Our Unification of Thought is a more powerful weapon than any fleet or army on Earth! We are one people. With one will. One resolve. One cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death. And we will bury them with their own confusion!”

One time, I preached the transcript above to myself in the mirror as if I believed it.  Freaked me the hell out.

I had a full-on grump about how people have conditioned themselves to accept what is provided – in life, in thought, in opportunity, in belief.  And I would’ve have blathered on about the whole of America is dependant on that very notion, as highlighted by the current financial crisis.  But I let it pass, I don’t need any more stress in life right now.

Maybe later…
