In the book “1984”, a dictatorial system of government control is described. The control measures on society are rabidly zealous. Mr. Orwell was definitely prescient about the future when he based his book on what he saw happening in Nazi Germany and Communist Russia.
One of the features of that control was two way video conferencing. The concept was only an idea which existed in theory but could not yet be developed. Science magazines in the 1930’s predicted that doctors would one day be able to conduct medical examinations by two-way viewers. Globalists salivated in anticipation of that day. So Mr. Orwell had the good sense to rely on some science fiction theories for his book 1984. In 1984, it was called a “telescreen.”
One of the ways the party controlled people was forcing them to engage is daily physical exercise at the start of the day. Of course, only a “caring” government would want to ensure you stayed in good health. Such would be a superficial assessment. In truth only healthy obedient citizens can serve the state.
Each day, citizens appeared before their two way video screen for “the Physical Jerks”. They were greeted by harsh dictates. If the leader could not see you in her view, she called out your name.
“Thirty to forty group!’ yapped a piercing female voice. ’ Thirty to forty group! Take your places, please. Thirties to forties!’ Winston sprang to attention in front of the telescreen, upon which the image of a youngish woman, scrawny but muscular, dressed in tunic and gym-shoes, had already appeared. ’Arms bending and stretching!’ she rapped out. ’Take your time by me. One, two, three, four! One, two, three, four! Come on, comrades, put a bit of life into it! One, two, three four! One two, three, four! . . .’ - excerpt from 1984.
What do we see today? Has anyone noticed the commercials on TV lately?
What drives all this? The love of money by a smaller and smaller group of people in control.
