“Mom,

can I eat the candy

that was thrown into my Halloween  bag

from the

Orange Man

and his friends

who lives in that White House?”

“OH NO, SWEETIE! 

THAT man and his “friends” are NOT our friends.

THAT man NEVER hands out candy

to those

who do NOT look OR  do NOT think like him!

ALL TRICKS! NO TREATS!

What you were given

is

FAKE candy!

Sweetie, the man in the white house

hands out

the truth

of

toxic waste

made of vitriol mixed with

hate, lies and fear

that will ravage

your precious body,

your innocent imaginative mind of light
and

your generation’s future.

X

SPIT IT OUT now

BEFORE you get

sick!

X

We cannot bring you to the hospital, sweetie,
because
it will be then documented
as a ‘pre-existing’ condition!
We cannot afford to lose the ACA
which is humane and
ALWAYS
covers
‘pre-existing’ conditions!”

‘Nevertheless, SHE Persisted.’

DAMN RIGHT!  OF COURSE!!  NOTHING LESS!!!

X

There are many ways that American culture

tells women to be quiet

—many ways they are reminded

that they would really be SO MUCH MORE pleasing

IF they would just smile a little more,

or talk a little less,

or work a little harder to be

PLIANT

and

AGREEABLE.

X
X

Women are,

in general,

extremely ATTUNED to these messages;

we have,

after all,

heard them

ALL

OUR

LIVES.

X
X
X
X
X

There
is a

Native American parable

about a ELDER who says:
 “I feel as if I have

two wolves

fighting

in my heart.

X
X

One wolf is the

vengeful, angry one.

The other wolf is the

loving, compassionate one.”

X

X

 When asked which wolf

will win the fight in their heart,

the ELDER replies: 

The one I feed.”

George Orwell’s

1984

Is Suddenly

a Best-Seller!

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/25/books/1984-george-orwell-donald-trump.html?emc=edit_th_20170126&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=49110186&_r=0

X

X

George Orwell’s classic book “1984,” about a dystopian future where critical thought is suppressed under a totalitarian regime, has seen a surge in sales this month, rising to the top of the Amazon best-seller list in the United States and leading its publisher to have tens of thousands of new copies printed.

X

Craig Burke, the publicity director at Penguin USA, said that the publisher had ordered 75,000 new copies of the book this week and that it was considering another reprint.

X

“We’ve seen a big bump in sales,” Mr. Burke said. He added that the rise “started over the weekend and hit hyperactive” on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Since Friday, the book has reached a 9,500 percent increase in sales, he said.

X

He said demand began to lift on Sunday, shortly after the interview Kellyanne Conway, an adviser to Donald J. Trump, gave on “Meet the Press.”

X

In defending a false claim by the White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, that Mr. Trump had attracted the “largest audience ever to witness an inauguration,” Ms. Conway used a turn of phrase that struck some observers as similar to the dystopian world of “1984.”

X

When asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” why Mr. Spicer had said something that was provably false, Ms. Conway replied airily, “Don’t be so dramatic.”

X

Mr. Spicer, she said, “gave alternative facts.”

X

In the novel, the term “newspeak” refers to language in which independent thought, or “unorthodox” political ideas, have been eliminated. “Doublethink” is defined as “reality control.”

X

On social media and elsewhere on Sunday, the book’s readers made a connection between Ms. Conway’s comments and Orwell’s language, and the attention on the book “kind of took a life of its own,” Mr. Burke said.

X

The dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster described the interview as “fraught with epistemological tension.” The dictionary also reported that searches for the word “fact” spiked after Ms. Conway’s comments, and then, as an apparent reminder, tweeted the dictionary’s definition.

X

Even outside the United States, interest in “1984” has grown. So far this year, sales have risen by 20 percent in Britain and Australia compared to the same period a year ago, according to Jess Harrison, a London-based editor at Penguin Books. The novel is usually a best-seller, she said, and it sold 100,000 copies last year in English-speaking countries outside the United States and Canada. “But we’ve definitely seen an uplift” in sales, she added.

X

Dystopian novels are “chiming with people,” Ms. Harrison said, adding that “The Man in The High Castle” by Philip Dick, an alternative history in which the Nazis defeated America to win World War II, is also selling well. A television series based on Mr. Dick’s novel is now in its second season at Amazon.

X

Penguin also published Sinclair Lewis’s “It Can’t Happen Here,” about the rise of a demagogue, last Friday in Britain for the first time since 1935, “and we’re already on to our third printing.”

X

On Wednesday, that book was also ranking among Amazon’s best sellers, as was Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” another dystopian classic.

X

Prof. Stefan Collini, a professor of intellectual history and an expert on Orwell at the University of Cambridge, said that readers see a natural parallel between the book and the way Mr. Trump and his staff have distorted facts.

X

“Everyone remembers ‘1984’ as containing various parodies of official distortions,” he said.

X

“That kind of unreality that is propagated as reality is what people feel reminded of, and that’s why they keep coming back.”
