When is “love” NOT love? One example would be the horrors that occurred in the “Ministry of Love” under Big Brother in George Orwell’s 1984.
The title of Orwell’s book was based upon the centenary of the founding of the Fabian Socialist Society about whom Orwell was familiar and trying to warn people. He indicated that a World Socialist Government under Big Brother would represent neither the failed Nazis nor the Communists who would fail (he wrote 1984 in 1949), but would rather be “priests of power” controlling men’s minds. According to Big Brother’s agent, O’Brien: “We are not content with negative obedience, nor even with the most abject submission. When finally you surrender to us, it must be of your own free will. We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us…. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him.” [emphasis added]
Another word for “reshape” is “remould,” which was part of the Fabians’ motto: “Remould it nearer to the heart’s desire,” the heart signifying “love,” as O’Brien said that the masses would come to “love” Big Brother. Coincidentally, Hillary Clinton talked periodically about “remoulding” society, and very influential with her, according to The New York Times Magazine was Michael Lerner who authored the New Socialist Revolution.
One of the early Fabians was H.G. Wells, who in 1901 wrote Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress Upon Human Life and Thought. In his chapter titled “The New Republic” (which he would later call “The New World Order”), he wrote: “The ethical system which will dominate the world state, will be shaped primarily… to check the procreation of base and servile types…. The method that must in some cases still be called in to the help of man is death… the merciful obliteration of weak and silly and pointless things. The new ethic will hold life to be a privilege and responsibility…. The men of the new republic will not be squeamish either in feeling or inflicting death…. They will have an ideal that will make killing worth the while.”
Similarly attempting to warn people about the potentially horrible future to come under a world Socialist dictatorship, Robert Hugh Benson in 1907 wrote Lord of the World correctly predicting from a future perspective that “…in 1917… Communism will really begin…. The new order began then…. [After 1989] the final scheme of Western Free Trade…. Patriotism has been dying fast…. With the Release Act of 1998… [there were] ministers of euthanasia…. Man was God…. No actual point of light breaking the appalling vault of gloom….”
Wells would revise his New World Order concept in 1928 in a book titled The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution. And in that same year, another early Fabian, George Bernard Shaw, wrote The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism. Remembering Wells’ reference to “merciful obliteration,” note that in Shaw’s book, one reads: “…under Socialism you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not the character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner….” The Power Elite’s attitude is that you will come to “love” Big Brother, because he is “kindly” and “merciful.”
One would have thought that with the ensuing horrors of that day perpetrated under Adolph Hitler during the 1930s and early 1940s, the Fabians would have had second thoughts about their “Grand Design.” However, after World War II, Fabian Socialist Bertrand Russell authored The Impact of Science Upon Society, in which he declared: “I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology…. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen…. There are, however, two powerful forces opposed to such a policy: one is religion; the other is nationalism…. Population can be kept from increasing…. Perhaps bacteriological war may prove effective. If Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full…. [The world] authority should deal out the world’s food to the various nations in proportion to their population at the time of the establishment of the authority. If any nation subsequently increased its population, it should not on that account receive any more food.”
With “education” playing such an important part in this scheme, according to Russell, it is noteworthy that Fabian Sir Julian Huxley became the first Director-General of UNESCO (U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and in 1948 wrote in UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy that “even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy of controlled human breeding will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that is now unthinkable may at least become thinkable.”
About this time, there was the “going public” and in 1975 the “stepping up” of the New Age Movement. And in The Aquarian Conspiracy (1980), Marilyn Ferguson indicated that the person leading New Agers listed most often as having “a profound influence upon their thinking” was Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who urged a “conspiracy of love” and proclaimed the need for a world government. He wrote that “the proposed organization must be international and in the end totalitarian…. The world of tomorrow will be born out of the ‘elected’ group of those who will decide that there is something big waiting for us ahead, and give their life to reach it…. How should we judge the efforts we lavish on all kinds of hospitals on saving what is so often no more than life’s rejects?... We have only to believe, then little by little, we shall see the universal horror unbend, and then smile upon us, and then take us in its more than human arms.”
Note again the benevolence of the “universal horror” that will “smile upon us” and take us in its arms.
The same year as Ferguson’s book was published, New Age networker (and a nominee for Vice-President at the 1984 National Democratic Convention) Barbara Marx Hubbard authored the unpublished manuscript, The Book of Co-Creation, part III of which was titled “The Revelation,” alluding to the Book of Revelation (especially chapter 6, verses 7 & 8) of The Holy Bible, when Hubbard admonished: “Out of the full spectrum of human personality, one-fourth is electing to transcend…. One-fourth is destructive [and] they are defective seeds. In the past they were permitted to die a ‘natural death.’ …Now as we approach the quantum shift from creature-human to co-creative human – the human who is an inheritor of god-like powers – the destructive one-fourth must be eliminated from the social body…. Fortunately, you are not responsible for this act. We are. We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.”
Hubbard would also attend the first “State of the World Forum” (Sept. 27 – Oct. 1, 1995) where world leaders, selected by former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, would take the “first step in establishing a Global Brain Trust.” A “New Civilization” was a major theme of the forum, where tremendous applause erupted when Sam Keen said, “If we cut the world’s population by 90%, there won’t be enough people left to do ecological damage.”
Think about what it would take to cut the world’s population by 90%! Of course, it will have to be done with “love,” and the Omega Institute announced that August 23-25, 1996 Sam Keen held a workshop called “The Practice of Love” that “help us strip away layers of false mystification we may be attached to and dependent upon, and find the real elements that compose the complexities of love...”
With "education" being twisted to exclusively mean "state schooling" in Sweden, and the state kidnapping of homeschooled child Domenic Johansson, there is an obvious and ominous parallel with the Orwellian (and social engineering) concept of "love" described in this article as compared to the one commonly understood by the vast bulk of liberty-loving mankind. I fear Sweden has been drifting into this Orwellian-type nightmare for so long now that it will extinguish the remaining lights of freedom unless the population wakes up and says "no more!" to its rogue politicians.
The government can easily convince us that it does not subscribe to this Fabian Socialist world view by immediately deregulating education and by following the United Nations recommendations issued to a country likewise abusing homeschoolers because of an unrepealed 1938 nazi law, Germany. Sweden deserves better than the nighmare of another European dictatorship.
