We as Americans are fortunate that this woman is not running the country right now. That isn’t to say that Trump is the bee’s knees, but seriously, who reads 1984 and comes out with this lesson? Sadly she probably has long thought this. Don’t question authority and “experts.”....like her. They know best. The woman is on the verge of checking out mentally......
Daily Caller - Clinton’s memoir “What Happened,” released Tuesday, suggests the goal of the government-sanctioned torture featured prominently in Orwell’s novel is to erode trust in the authoritarian overlords who control all aspects of society. This perspective is diametrically opposed to the central lesson most readers have drawn from the book since it was published in 1949.
“ Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos. This is what happens in George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered. The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust toward exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, ex-perts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves. For Trump, as with so much he does, it’s about simple dominance.”
"The origin of Clinton’s counter-intuitive interpretation of the work is unclear. Somehow, after reading a terrifying account of government overreach creeping into every aspect of human life and choice, Clinton drew the lesson that individuals should be able to trust the government, and society’s various information gatekeepers. A number of Clintons’ fellow Democrats have condemned the contents of the campaign memoir as unnecessarily divisive and derided her for the timing of its release. One former Clinton staffer told Politico that Clinton’s book release and the resulting news cycle was her “final torture” for the party."
Maybe Ma Clinton should spend a little less time grifting and more time with head in a real book. But since we don't think that will happen, we're sending this "expert" literary explanation of 1984 along to her in hopes it helps her understand.......
