The Cult of GoodThink
By Craig Dudley – March 19, 2017
“She was – the newspeak word goodthinkful – meaning naturally orthodox, incapable of thinking a bad thought. She had not a thought in her head that was not a slogan, and there was no imbecility, absolutely none that she was not capable of swallowing if the Party handed it out to her.” – George Orwell, 1984
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, and our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of…. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.” – Edward Bernays
“We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to… There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world…That is hard to do, but I think it’s going to be necessary, it’s going to be possible.” – Barack Obama, speech Oct 13, 2016
Obama recently told an audience the news needs to be “curated” in some way, in order to limit the infection of “fake news”. He appointed himself as the sole arbiter of ‘truth’ rather than the 1st Amendment right after the Hildabeast lost the ‘election’. Shortly after, the CIA-connected Washington Post launched a campaign against ‘fake news’ sites. The campaign quickly morphed into: these sites aided a Russian op to throw the election to Trump. In other words, free speech was actually aiding and abetting a crime.
Don’t listen to what they say, watch what they do. The mainstream media, like Washington Post and New York Times among others, are complicit, demonstrating an echo chamber drowning out rationality and describing differing philosophies and legitimate dissent as blasphemous. “Goebbels was in favor of freedom of speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you’re in favor of freedom of speech, that means you’re in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise.” Noam Chomsky
We will lose what used to be inalienable rights…our right to free speech, our right to free association, and our rights to our own minds. If something you say is considered ‘hurtful’, which will more closely resemble dissent or criticism of the Official Narrative than anything else, you will be sanctioned. You will toe the line or you will be penalized; contracts severed, vendors disassociate themselves, boycotts ensue. Whatever you do, just don’t say or think the wrong thing, because not going along with the crowd will make you an outcast.
