Tell me again please how the republicans don’t have a “war on women”?  Females are more than incubators for MALES offspring.  Females have their own lives, their own RIGHTS, and this is a legal medical procedure that is up to the woman with her doctor to decided if she should have.   It has to be enforced that woman have rights.   Hugs

Here’s what we think some of today’s headlines could have read if we lived in Rowling’s magical world. Note: This is purely fan fiction conceived from USA Today’s intern Summer Bedard.

Orwell or Huxley .. Who Got The Future Right ? …

Orwell or Huxley .. Who Got The Future Right ? ….

Orwell or Huxley .. Who Got The Future Right ?Over   60 years ago, in the grim aftermath of WW2 and against the backdrop of a   devastated Europe, George Orwell wrote his famous dystopian novel   ‘1984′ which predicted an oppressive, authoritarian future state ruled by force and crude propaganda. Aldous Huxley, writing almost two   decades earlier in ‘Brave New World’, had envisioned a more subtle   society in the future where people were seduced into passivity by a   constant flow of trivial information and distracting entertainment. So   who got it right ? Well, maybe they both did.Most of the time   you can clearly see Huxley’s vision prevailing in our society. We float   along unthinking in a world of constant, 24/7 distraction and   entertainment. Music and movies and the internet and social-networking   and reality shows and celebrity gossip and shopping and advertisements   and all of the shiny gadgets and sparkly sound-bytes of disinformation   leave very little time to think about the state of our society. And since most of the mainstream media are owned by a very few huge corporate-friendly entities and what passes for political debate is only permitted within a very narrow spectrum, misinformation and apathy are the inevitable defaults. We’re   usually far too busy consuming to question. Far too busy being entertained to revolt.But what if, rarely, a few people manage to unplug   themselves from the distraction for long enough to take a serious look   at the way we live ?  What if they begin to fundamentally question a society   where the majority are exploited for the benefit of a tiny, privileged   minority ? What if they come to resent as oppressive and over-reaching a   state surveillance apparatus so omnipresent and extreme it makes   Orwell’s ‘Big Brother’ look amateur ? What if they see through the lies   and propaganda used to justify America’s state of ‘endless war’ ? What   if they understand the harsh truth that there’s no hope of fundamental   change through the present deeply corrupt political   system and instead challenge the status quo with direct action or indeed   any genuinely effective criticism or resistance ? That’s   when it can switch in a heartbeat to Orwell’s vision of the future.   That’s when we see the brute force of militarized police and a legal   system that works for our rulers. If you ever cease to be a good   consumer and actually look like you’re truly threatening the system you can   expect to be met with whatever it takes to stop you .. clubs, pepper-spray, dirty tricks, disinformation, smears, draconian laws, even   jail. Orwell said “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face forever.” Not forever, just whenever there’s any real challenge to the status quo. Then you will see the ugly face behind   the mask.Between them, I think Orwell and Huxley were scarily   accurate in predicting the future all those years ago but what neither foresaw was that we   would end up with the worst of both worlds. The relentless control of an iron fist hidden inside a velvet glove.Still, what can you do ? I wonder if there’s anything good on TV tonight ?Internet Writer(cartoon by Paul Fell)
