‘1984’ At Seventy (Louis Menand)


Comments by Charles Sulka


While paywalled articles are generally avoided, this essay is particularly powerful, and could not be more timely. America — and, indeed, the whole world — is fast being organized into a global surveillance state where the population will be monitored and controlled by artificial intelligence software on government (read: corporate) supercomputers with the global 5G wireless cellular network beaming powerful mind control signals directly into the brains of the populace.

And who is really behind this plot to enslave the human race? 5G technology was developed by Israel’s technology firms … but 5G wireless is strictly prohibited in Israel. It’s something to think about.

Please read the article (see URL at the end of this short commentary.) Those who do not have subscriptions to the New Yorker may still read the article without cost.


Pieces like this remind me that I never could have been a real intellectual. Not only would it have required far more gray matter than I possess (and wired differently, too) … it’s too much hard work! Seriously.

Consider Louis Menand’s analysis of Orwell’s “1984.” Think about how many books and reviews he had to have read and absorbed to have come to these conclusions. It is humbling to realize how much more a truly powerful intellect gets out of a work of literature.

One fascinating aspect of Menand’s essay on Orwell’s book is the closing paragraph’s veiled reference to AIPAC and the Jews’ interference in America’s political process. Since Menand is a Jew himself, it is uncharacteristically perceptive of the man to recognize — much less to publicly admit — the reality of the Jews’ assault on democracy, and to point out the hypocrisy in recriminations against those who would investigate the threat posed by The Enemy Within.
