THE PRIMARY AIM OF MODERN WARFARE

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

“The primary aim of modern warfare (in accordance with the principles of doublethink, this aim is simultaneously recognized and not recognized by the directing brains of the Inner Party) is to use up the products of the machine without raising the general standard of living. (2.9.25, Goldstein’s Manifesto)”

“War is a necessary tool for the Party because it keeps the standard of living in check, maintaining the inequalities essential to a totalitarian state.”

— from “1984” by George Orwell (published in 1947)

RIGHT IS MIGHTTOTALITARIAN CREDO: “History is written by the victors”

Plato’s The Republic (380 BCE) claims that “justice is nothing else than the interest of the stronger”.   This is the maxim of The Physical Universe.  The entire history of humans on Earth is a demonstration of this fundamental principle.  Altruism, egalitarianism, love, beneficence, and kindness have forever been overwhelmed and trampled in the dust of the brutal force of armies.  “Right” and “Wrong” are the same is “Strong” and “Weak” in the physical universe.  If you are seeking a “loving” moral code, you must find it within yourself.  It does not exist in the physical universe.
