's review

it was amazing

Is Orwell turning in his grave? Does his epitaph read. "I fucking warned you! Don't say I never told you so! "

Did he have a crystal fucking ball?

If you want truth, go out and see

Not like in 1984, Richard Burton on TV

Orwell must have been psychic, or was he in the know

Cos' what's going on in the world clearly shows

That humanity is programmed through a TV screen

Since its conception, its all its ever been

News, films, dramas, sports, soaps and cartoons

Leaving the masses wide eyed, like Buffoons

All the rhetoric and propaganda, oozing about us, every place we look, and go

It is everywhere, embedded, enveloping, as people to and fro

Screens on buildings, bus stops, train stations, all over the place, fuelling our vices

PC's, laptops, google glass, tablets and mobile devices

Its in the ether, the air and the subconscious brain

Whether one is aware or not, the information leaves its stain

Orwell must have been psychic, or was he in the know

Perpetual war, a bogeyman, terrorists, must be real, its all a TV show

Censored press, hacking phones, spying on the masses

Every email, phone call, text message, and google eye glasses

Technocratic Dystopia, hunger games, people put into factions

Not allowed to speak, monitoring our actions

In the name of security, no person is free

Unless your blood is Royal, or have connections to the family

Or a valued member in Vatican State, purple robes, velvet glove, and iron fist

A Freemason, a congressman, senator, president, PM, you get the gist

Social engineering, eugenics, deep state, cabals and satanic cults

Lodges, temples, hail, thunder and lightening bolts

Rapture, ragnarok, jihad, ends of days TV

In dramas, films, cartoons, its all we ever see

Monsters and bogeymen, cold war, terrorism, and disease, and destruction

People trafficking, drug smuggling, arms deals, and child abduction

All entertainment, to keep the masses distracted

No freedom of information, cos the juicy bits are redacted

In the name of security, or for the security of a famous name

The whole thing is inverted, its all a game

Cos' rules are lures, and laws are walls

And all of the people are silly fools

Glued to a PC, Mob Phone or TV screen

Since its conception, its all its ever been

Was Orwell a psychic, or was he in the know

One things for certain, it won't be on a TV show

By Leo.🐯👍

When one is young and immersed into the seas of academia one is asked what one wants to be when one grows up? Which pigeon hole? What label? What career?

When a car driver loses control of the vehicle and strays from the path that was ahead, the car careers off the road. One might crash. One is no longer on the journey one originally set out on. One is lost. Off the beaten track.

So, when one is a child and asked what career one wants, esoterically it means how can one be swayed or crashed and stopped from what one may want to be when one grows up. The only answer a child should give to their teacher (indoctrinater) is...HAPPY!👍🐯

Who are these people? These authorities with all the powers?

Deciding what we say, or do, or go, from their Ivory Towers

A deviant neighbour moves in next door, behaviour abnormal, and hoarding trash

Puts his waste in his shed, a festering, mouldy stash

Attracting rats, mice, flies and vermin of all kinds

Breaking other residents resolve, distorting their minds

For when the community complain about it, every day, week in week out, all the time

These authorities point the finger at us, accuse us of a Bloody Hate Crime!

Rationale has been replaced, with the word Hate

As the lines blur, in this New World Order, is it too late?

To change this world? To take a stance? Maybe our last Chance!

This world is going to Hell in a Shitstorm! If we don't restore the Earth's Balance. 🐯👍

Politics, or many ticks? Crawling all over society

Police or Po-Lice? Crawling over people who are Free

Choose and Lose, for they are not there, for the likes of You and Me

Look around and thus, Beware!

These parasites, are only there to Scare

To enforce Order, in the chaos they Create

On behest of the Magicians behind the curtains, the One's that preach Hate.

In this Cube, this false construct, this Square.

So look around, see the whole, and Beware!

I am full aware of what is going on in this pursuit for a New World Order, an Old World Order, whereby the void between the few and the majority broadens. I am so frustrated how the Sheeple just seem to lap it up. Every day the Inter-NET tightens it's grip or, the World Wide Spider Web lures and traps millions with the Glitsy new smart phone. A cell phone. A smart cell phone that is all singing and dancing...Blah! Blah! Blah! It is called a Cell phone for a reason. Like the Net and the Web. Soon all appliances and mob devices will be Smart. If one does not own one then when 5G is rolled out and the Smart Grid comes into being, one will be left behind. Soon all money paid in wages or commerce will be digital and people will not survive in the New Virtual World unless one is chipped or connected to the 5G network. Understand that money is phony. It is paper or a figure on a PC screen. Soon to be a digital concept, like in the film In Time. Money used to be made of copper, silver and gold. This is when coins actually held value, worth it's weight in gold actually meant something. Then the Templars invented the Banking system, (now they are called Freemasons) a Fiat pyramid system that is illegal yet, no person seems to care. That is the way it is. Only because of ignorance. Acquiescence, Taxation is a fraud. It is theft. Time to wake up before it is too late.

Club of Rome, Skull and Bones, Knights of the Realm, Knights of Malta, Rosicrucians, CFR, just a few of the Nefarious institutions. London School Of Economics and the Tavistock Institute. Oh! And the female freemasonic Eastern Star. Maybe I have said too much but, I don't care anymore.

That is today's Rant.

Everybody should read 1984 and also watch the film.


The Sex Pistols, a great British band

Fully aware, of the hidden hand

The entity, that controls, from most high, looking down

Elevated, Godlike, Alpha, The Crown💓👍🐯

Natasha Lane Lolz love your review & I'm sure he is.

Hassan G Love Orwell's writing, and I love your review
With your permission I'd like to quote some of it and share it with my friends!
This part "Rules are lures, and laws are walls and all the people are silly fools" had me in awe .. beautifully written, thank you so much for sharing!

Leo . hi Hassan.

of course you can use " rules are lures and laws are walls and all the people are silly fools "

here is another one of my quotes

"a sheep needs a Shepherd, it seems

to help guide the sleep, when he or she dreams"

Pasi Rahko If you are looking for good dystopian books to read, then I would recommend to you "This Perfect Day" by Ira Levin. While overshadowed by more popular dystopia novels like 1984, I think this book is among the mot powerful of its genre, and it's fun to read and a fun retro futuristic 70s style dystopia novel.

Leo . 🐯👍

Jean-marcel The poem would make great lyrics to a hardcore/punk song!

I really like the book myself, and it's got so many memorable passages and scenes. I can't help feel that it's inevitable absorption by what one might call pop culture might be a bit unfortunate. It does sometimes seem like people invoke it's name out of hysteria. I know that people (governments, corporations, cabals!) can and do often go too far, but generally I can't help but feel that the rise of technology is a good thing for the human race. But maybe that's because I can only speak for myself, as one who has embraced some of its boons wholeheartedly and whose life has been made better as a result of such progress.

I used to believe the grim dystopia of The Party was not something that could last nearly as long as OBrien prophecised. Surely people would realise how unhappy they were and do something about it? But yeah, this is not something I would stake my life on. Maybe people really are as malleable under the hands of a controlling state that knows how to use the modern tools at its disposal.

Richard Burton is great and all, but if you want to see something cool, check out the 1950s BBC production of 1984, with Peter Cushing as Winston and Andre Morell as OBrien. Those two made a great double act in many films, including that of Holmes and Watson, but I think they were best as antagonists.

Simon Well we've seen the collapse of the USSR which 1984 is clearly a metaphor for, and now the first steps taken towards Korean unification so I don't know if the DPRK even works as a counter-example.

For what it's worth, much of the canonization of 1984 and Animal Farm comes from their surrounding context which is little appreciated today. Orwell wrote those books after the end of WW2 but before the Cold War as we know it today really started, in other words where Western European admiration for the USSR was at a high point thought unthinkable before the war and would never reach again.

Leo . Ha! I have been waiting for a musician to collaborate with me as I have copious amounts of rhymes and poems. Maybe one day my prose will earn me some money. I am working on a picture poetry book at present and half finished the sequel to Kandor The Warrior. 🐯👍

P.E. Cos' rules are lures, and laws are walls
That one runs smooth!

Swell review, Leo.

Biblio Curious I'm sure your review has been updated since I originally liked it back in the summer. O.O How batty our world is becoming.

The film version from the 50's is darker then the one from the 80s. :(
