CORPORATE TOTALITARIANISM

Aldous Huxley (and Goering) nail it

Quotes brought to our attention by Philip Roddis

‘By means of ever more effective methods of mindmanipulation,

the democracies will change their nature;

the quaint old forms – elections, parliaments, Supreme

Courts and all the rest – will remain. The underlying

substance will be a new kind of totalitarianism. All the

traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain

exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy

and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast

and editorial. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its

highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thoughtmanufacturers

and mind-manipulators will quietly run

the show as they see fit.’

Brave New World, Aldous Huxley

5

As the west sleepwalks into nuclear confrontation over Syria

with a Russia our leaders have pushed into a corner – using

all their corporate backed might to paint black white, up down

and evil common sense – Huxley’s words could have been

freshly coined just this morning.
