In the words of George Orwell . . .

Cover of George Orwell's 1984

(CCL Jhack)

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; so long as he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist any-where in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. (emphasis mine)

  1. We will never surrender!
    We may be martyrs for righteousness, but we will never give in.
    An anonymous quote:
    “I will die in my bed; my son will die in prison; my grandson will die a martyr.”
    These are the saddest times in our history.

  2. My family and many friends are boycotting your food chain until your latest pornographic commercial is taken off the air. The last time I did just that was when I was outraged and offended by the commercial of a model riding a mechanical bull ( I’m sure you remember) and it took me years to come back to try your food again! Now, outraged hopefully for the last time by your immoral , base attempts to satisfy your greed for the Almighty ( to you) Dollar, I believe you owe an apology and the removal of your degrading commercial from our homes. The real Carl was a good Christian man who lived out his morals and would be appalled at what disgrace and degradation you have brought , turning his American dream into a nightmare. Please carry on his business to American families with respect and dignity. Thank you.
