The final coup d’ grace of a social experimentalist named Big Brother has now fallen upon America. A death blow, as it were. The hammer strike is a vindication of George Orwell’s commentary regarding utopian tyrants. According to recent news wires, housing racial quotas are to be enforced in every neighborhood in America by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Curiously, the Obama-theorist re-engineers would condemn internment camps of World War Two, but yet champion their own version of relocation enforcement as being somehow benevolent. Still, that we know of, HUD has no legitimate Federal jurisdiction over private neighborhoods.
Besides, their resettlement policy smacks of every other similar forced migration based on ethnicity which has preceded it…from Mussolini’s “Italianization” program to Murad II’s conquest of Salonika and his Ottoman state’s forced settlement of Muslims in former Balkan communities.
Perhaps an even more appropriate comparison would be the ancient Incas with their deliberate enforcement of “heterogeneity” upon conquered peoples. The Inca sought to ensure a breakdown of traditional community ties…to make them easier to dominate. Seems to us, to be spot on today.
Far be it from us to point out that this enforced heterogeneity, if that is what it may be called, is very likely itself a crime against humanity because it is a forcible transfer of populations, to say nothing of the right to free association. Further, as the United Nations puts it, regarding such programs…“the cardinal principle of ‘voluntariness’ is seldom satisfied, regardless of the objective of the transfer.” [1993, United Nations Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities]. Seems to us this current Federal government attempts to use the “objective” of the transfer to justify and cover over a heinous pogrom.
And thus, Mr. Orwell did have it mostly right on his understanding of post modernism. As he noted in 1949, a year before his death, from the classical novel called 1984. “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”
Mr. Orwell was also very astute in his characterization of what would become the base of modern Obama discipleship. “One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, ‘Nature Cure’ quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.” [1937, The Road to Wigan Pier]. That about says it.
