More as and when.
9. American Thinker has one we need to look at
It goes into finer detail than our general references so far:
Even there, though my political area would accept the word 'left', methinks we, of our own volition, need to find a word which can include dissidence and dissidents of most persuasions. There is such a word today - 'Woke'.
There are other terms such as cancel culture, deplatforming, equality and diversity - all are relevant but Woke and Wokery seem to sum it up well.
Newspeak is one of their primary mechanisms utilized to prevent critical thought and debate while expanding power by “reimagining” (their word du jour) language:In the novel, the ruling English Socialist Party (Ingsoc) created Newspeak to meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism in Oceania.Newspeak is a controlled language of simplified grammar and restricted vocabulary designed to limit the individual's ability to think and articulate "subversive" concepts such as personal identity, self-expression and free will.
The rest you can probably read over there. Meanwhile, note Dearieme's musing [in comments] about Ferguson's political leanings.
I'd reply 'undefined, respectably suited', meaning 'hidden from view' but it would be pro-Chatham House, Tavistock, Round Tables and that makes it global socialist or not to put too fine a point on it - global crony capital-communist or to go religious - the devil's work.
One looks at Whitty and sees Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski at his worst, all part of the same gang. Look at the Astor, Bundy and Kennedy families - same lot. Cabots and Lowells.
It's no coincidence that the massive spike a week ago in numbers here at N.O. was because of my review, in 2009, of Christie's Passenger from Frankfurt. Bloggers always get google searches on topics - maybe 50 people, a hundred tops - this was 1200 on that one post before google stopped the count. I don't think for one second that they were all friendlies and the curious.
Coming back to the Ferguson politics etc., search for Geoff Mulgan and David Bell and it is quite revealing if you persevere - just how groups tie in with each other. One name which comes up is Norman Geras and another - one Anthony Charles Lynton Blair. Look up Euston Manifesto and Common Purpose - only Labour you think?
Now a tale against myself and my bit of prattishness in 2010 at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester which was easy for me to attend. I asked a question of the panel and for some insane reason, instead of saying, 'I'm a Conservative,' I came out with 'I'm a Tory,' around about the time I called the navy the British Navy online, only to be set straight by Dearieme.
After the session, Chris Grayling came down our aisle and patted me on the back. Now wasn't that interesting? It certainly was for former wets and dries and I can say my companion there was wincing, hoping I'd shut up the rest of the conference.
Language choices give us away every time.
