There have been multiple threads on some other websites in the last couple days about the soaring sales of Orwell’s 1984 since the Snowden story broke. Here is a link to its’s current ranking:
In the last 24 hours it has gone from the 12,849th best selling book on Amazon to the 184th best selling, a 6,888% increase. It seems a few people are interested in what is going to happen next in this country. Our beloved government has been using Orwell’s Dystopian Novel as a blueprint for controlling the masses in this country and it has worked like a charm.
Fourth Turnings are all about mood change. Do you think the mood in this country is darkening or brightening? The captured corporate MSM is desperately attempting to spin our rapidly deteriorating situation into a recovery storyline through their usual propaganda techniques. It’s failing.
It is clear to me that those in power are losing control of the situation. Their financial schemes are blowing up in their faces. Their propaganda machine continues to function, but less and less people are listening. Their unending wars are bankrupting the country and creating enemies around the globe. Now their Orwellian surveillance state methods have been revealed. An angry minority are sick and tired of seeing the U.S. Constitution trampled. The existing social order is crumbling. They will not relinquish their power, wealth and control without a fight. But they will lose. They will be swept away and replaced by a new social order. It could be an all powerful Orwellian dictatorship or we could create something better. That is up to us.
Orwell wrote his novel over 60 years ago. It is now number 73 on the Amazon bestseller list. I found it interesting that Fahrenhit 451 was number 68 and another book called Bunker Hill was also in the top 100 selling books. There is definitely a mood change in this country and it is being reflected in the alternative media, books we are reading, and popular shows and movies (Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, World War Z, Zombie TV shows).
It is a good sign that people are interested in reading Orwell’s 1984. Our future depends on enough people waking from their materialistic stupor and fighting the tyranny of our keepers. The time to choose sides is rapidly approaching. If you haven’t read the book, buy it now. Do you want a boot stomping on your face for the rest of your life?
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
