Big Brother: (n) from George Orwell’s novel, 1984.
There is a verse in the Good Book which offers some sage and practical advice: “Don’t piss against the wall.”
The reason for this is fairly obvious. Although you may think you’re relieving yourself, the blowback will still land on your person.
Such is the case with all human beings who think that productive solutions can be achieved politically or socially.
Politics has one goal: to control.
Even when they say their goal is to have less government and less control, there is still an agenda to manipulate the mores, standards and ideals of the people by making it seem like “the folks voted on it.”
And when you’re looking for social solutions, you immediately find that to make Citizen A happy, you must disrupt Citizen B, while confusing Citizen C, turning Citizen D into a raving maniac, and taking all the little Citizen Es and making them disillusioned.
Maybe there is a Big Brother out there, trying to control our every move and thoughts.
Yet if such a creature does exist, he, she or it is a wall–a barricade which will only deflect all the things we throw against it … because we’re pissed off.
