The Thought Police

Thier surveillance state in 1984 was slightly more advanced than ours, though ours is rapidly catching up. It enabled them to detect deviant, anti-party behavior as soon as it manifested itself. That would trigger increased scrutiny. If it advanced to the point of being displayed in public, the perpetrator would be imprisoned, and eventually killed. Not just killed, but all traces of you would be erased. People would quickly learn not to oppose the ever-changing Big Brother narrative. They were conditioned though fear, and the knowledge they were monitored constantly to intuit wrongthink and stifle such thoughts before they emerged. This is what Ingsoc called "crimestop". People were trained to self-cancel any independent part of their psyche.

Are we being made to suffer intentionally?

For Americans, driving means freedom. The ability to just pick up, and leave town almost at a whim, either for business or pleasure promotes independent thought and action. This is antithetical to the leftist way. For the socialists and other collectivists, travel outside of one's hometown is a privilege, not a right.

You are not real to the globalists.

People are going hungry in Sri Lanka. Farmers in the Netherlands will be driven out of business. Europeans will freeze and Americans will sweat. Because their governments have decided to chase good ESG scores, instead of following best farming practices, people will go hungry and perhaps even starve this winter.

LR Podcast, S2E40: A global movement

United States, Canada, Czech Republic, Australia, Austria, Belgium, etc.  These demonstrations are now global, and common. This has to be the biggest political/human rights movement since the massive anti-communist movements of the early 1990s. Perhaps nothing in Western Civilization today is more hated than vaccine mandates and passports.
