Utopians are heavily read!

Brave New World and 1984 are no longer merely the bookends of modern sci fiction, they are the Swiftonian wiki guides to understanding life on planet earth circa 2014.

"Under the relentless thrust of accelerating over-population and increasing over-organization, and by means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old formselections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the restwill remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent 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 editorialbut Democracy and freedom in a strictly Pickwickian sense. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit. "
- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited, published 1958
Could they be any more accurate?
"In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs,
hovered for an instant like a bluebottle,
and darted away again with a curving flight.
It was the police patrol, snooping in people's windows."

- George Orwell 1984

Liberty Blitzkrieg gets deeper into our world. Progressives and libertians agree, the solution to almost everything is decentralized self sufficiency. We do not need no stinkin goverment much any more! All we need the goverment for is to peacefully transfer assets allowing everyone to live in a highly decentralized self sufficient world. highly recommended reading, Utopians are heavily read.

If you dont read expect to live these pictures.
