  •  What's new is that the infiltration, manipulation, (8+ / 0-)

    and propaganda being used now by the corporate state is exponentially larger, much more advanced, and more far-reaching that ever in history.

    It has reached science-fiction levels... The entire society is teeming with treasonous opportunists being paid with corporate money to spy on citizens, to spread false narratives and propaganda, to collect intelligence on activists and the social justice movement.

    We are being spied on by the government, by corporate cartels... Dossiers are being built on millions of people, with focus on radical activists and those who are perceived as threats to the corporatist hegemony.

    People are being analyzed and categorized based on very detail personal and collective psychological profiles and very advanced methods of propaganda and manipulation are being used against the people.

    I think Orwell may have had trouble imagining the true nature of the disinformation capabilities of the modern corporate state.

      I can see this.  That's also why I stay away from sites like FB or other social media.  For goodness sake, I just read the other day that the electronic book people (nook, kindle, etc.) are tracking what people are reading so that they can tell authors to write books to appeal to those people!  Frightening!

      Yes, we are being tracked on a level Orwell could not have imagined, but he was on the right track!

      (sorry I can't rec your comment, but my old version of windows won't let me but if I get into another computer later today, I'll do it!)
