They keep talking about 1984. Naive people.
They don’t know we have got to one step further.
So what’s new? This is the norm, isn’t it?
You are right about that. Still, it’s a good warning for those who are thinking of ratting on us and who don’t know that this is the norm now. It’s hard to believe but some people still don’t know what century they are living in.
[Also from the 20th century, but into the 21st century]
Woody Guthrie at 100: Pete Seeger, Billy Bragg, Will Kaufman Honor the “Dust Bowl Troubadour”
“I come from Oklahoma, you know? It’s a rich state. You want some oil? Go down in the ground. Get you some hole. Get you more oil. If you want lead, we got lead in Oklahoma. Go down a hole and get you some lead. If you want coal, we got coal in Oklahoma. Go down a hole, get you some coal. If you want food, clothes or groceries, just go in the hole and stay there.”
Woody Guthrie, as told by Pete Seeger
Specially on Fridays.
(Assassination is good, but torture is better. It’s happy and it’s healthy and it’s normal.)
