Welcome to 1984

Bienvenue à 1984 - Willkommen im (Orwellschen) Jahr 1984

In these times of ever growing surveillance, repression and militarism along with the emergence of a Police State in a growing number of countries I think regularly of George Orwell's great, "prophetic", dystopian novel "1984" that he published after WWII. If you are interested in this book, that deals with totalitarianism and the growing influence of the State on individuals symbolised by the "Thought Police", or in his other writings, you can read them on www.george-orwell.org. The music in the following video is the song "Welcome to 1984" by the US punk band Anti-Flag. The clip deals mainly with militarism, war and the problems of Democracy and the role of the neocons in the USA but you can apply the content on other war like governments and groups. TANKMAN rulez!

War is Peace - Freedom is Slavery - Ignorance is Strength



Who would Jesus bomb? Yeah, who would Jesus kill?
The double talk is past surreal
The word of god is now the word of hate
War is peace, and freedom is the police state
Can't you see the writing on the wall?
Democracy lays trampled on the floor...

You better believe that...
Hell yeah I'm confused for sure what I thought was the New Millennium is 1984!
Mr. Orwell from the grave, adding fresh ink to the page
As the unpresident declares an endless war...
Welcome to 1984!

Feels like Nazi Germany, and Hitler on TV,
As the unpresident spews his homophobic speech
Didn't the Allies fought a war to end extremist fascist law
So tell me NOW what the fuck are we fighting for?

I just can not take it anymore
Democracy lays trampled on the floor...
Man, isn't freedom great?!?!

Hell yeah I'm confused for sure what I thought was the New Millennium is 1984!
Mr. Orwell from the grave, adding fresh ink to the page
As the unpresident declares an endless war...

Now we've got...
Armies of peace, armed to the teeth, delivering death to make the world a better place
So celebrate the weapons spending, say a toast to Armageddon, raise some hell!
We're all headed straight to hell!

Hell yeah I'm confused for sure what I thought was the New Millennium is 1984!
Mr. Orwell from the grave, adding fresh ink to the page
As the unpresident declares an endless war...
Welcome to 1984!
