Corrected Thinking


Corrected Thinking

“A tragic situation exists precisely when virtue does not triumph but when it is still felt that man is nobler than the forces which destroy him.” – George Orwell

Wonderful news!
Humanity rots, but
man’s spirit cannot be defeated!
Empty your defective memory, and
you will be freed
through a ministry of love!

Destroy all evidence!
Burn in flames the history of thought, until
nothing remains but stratospheric gas and
a well practiced theory,
then watch the rats
retreat back into the cage!

We are the dying race!
But we can live on through martyrdom,
beg for a life of usefulness — in labor camps!
Triumph through self-abasement
freely allow conspirators’ boots
to stand upon your face!

Think not as a criminal!
Nor be a useless victim,
but instead a proud member
of the community collective,
and you’ll get your reward –
the freedom of corrected thinking.
