Does Vladimir Putin Know the Real Purpose of War, according to Orwell?



by Mary W Maxwell

Editor’s note: This was prompted by the long thread of Comments under the Trump article of January 14, 2017.

Was there ever a genuine hostility between the US and the USSR? I don’t think so. Why would Churchill give the kitchen sink away at Yalta, seconded by FDR, if Russia were the enemy? Or if “communism” were the enemy?

I go along with the thesis that the emergence of the Bolshies in 1917 was arranged by the two Warburg brothers, Max in America and Paul in Germany – or was it the other way around. See? it doesn’t even matter – they were both the servants of World Government. (I also accept Nesta Webster’s 1922 theory that the French Revolution was scripted).

Maybe today’s Russian chief, Vladimir Putin, exists outside the rule of the Bozos (as I like to call the cabal) — but I doubt it. The main reason I doubt it is Orwell’s 1984. I see George Orwell as having been, like HG Wells, a man who was allowed to drop some amazing insider information on the populace – as Dr Richard Day later did in 1969.

Why was he allowed to do it? Maybe 1984 was a trial balloon – to see which parts the people would declare unthinkable.

In the 1960s when I was in high school, Orwell’s book was required reading throughout the state (Assachusetts – or, at that time, Massachusetts) and possibly the whole nation. We all took it to be a book that showed how people live in slavery under communism.

When I re-read it a few years ago I noticed for the first time that the main character, Winston Smith, was enjoying a sneak peak at a sort of philosophy book. (Any books of value were, of course suppressed by the Ministry of Truth).  In 1984 a dissident named Emanuel Goldstein had figured things out and his work had reached the eager hands of Winston.

So I now present the Goldstein theory below, much abridged. It seems to me that this is the way our “genius” cabal does actually behave.  I see them today causing disease, destruction of families, dumbing-down of kids, making war, and anything else they can think of doing to keep themselves in power.

Goldstein says the purpose of war is to prevent the folks from noticing that the rich don’t deserve to be rich.

This extreme cynicism ties in with the way Winston Smith observed the constant war between the three superpowers, projected in 1949 when the book was written, to the far-off year 1984. (That would be like us in 2017 looking to 2052.)

Those powers, in Winston’s 1984 life, were Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia. Naturally, we know that in the real year 1984 the two superpowers were the US and the USSR, “led” by the Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan and Yuri Andropov.

According to Winston Smith, who lived in Airstrip One — Orwell’s name for “the former Britain” – it did not seem to matter which of the three superpowers was winning at the moment and there didn’t seem to be much explanation given for the wars that the three frequently waged against one another. (As indeed there would not be if someone at the very top ran all three superpowers.)

So here is the shadowy intellectual of 1984, Emanuel Goldstein, telling his fellow sufferers in Airstrip One how it all works. (I quote directly):

What’s the Real Purpose of War? From George Orwell, 1984 (published in 1949)

The world of today [in 1984] is a bare, hungry, dilapidated place compared with the world that existed before 1914, and still more so if compared with the imaginary future to which the people of that period looked forward. [It was assumed that science] would go on developing.

This failed to happen, partly because of the impoverishment caused by a long series of wars and revolutions, partly because scientific and technical progress depended on the empirical habit of thought, which could not survive in a strictly regimented society….

From the moment when the machine first made its appearance, it was clear to all thinking people that the need for human drudgery, and therefore to a great extent for human inequality, had disappeared … But it was also clear that an all-round increase in wealth threatened the destruction … of a hierarchical society.

In a world in which everyone worked short hours, had enough to eat, lived in a house with a bathroom and a refrigerator … the most obvious form of inequality would already have disappeared….

If it became general, wealth would confer no distinction … the great mass of human beings who are stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; once they had done this, they would realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away.

In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance. To return to the agricultural past … was not a practicable solution. It conflicted with the tendency towards mechanization which had become quasi-instinctive throughout almost the whole world…

Nor was it a satisfactory solution to keep the masses in poverty by restricting the output of goods… since the privations it inflicted [would be] obviously unnecessary, it [would make] opposition inevitable.

The problem was how to keep the wheels of industry turning without increasing the real wealth of the world. … In practice the only way of achieving this was by continuous warfare.

The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces … materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent….

It is deliberate policy to keep even the favoured groups somewhere near the brink of hardship, because a general state of scarcity increases the importance of small privileges and thus magnifies the distinction between one group and another.

And at the same time the consciousness of being at war, and therefore in danger, makes the handing-over of all power to a small caste seem the natural, unavoidable condition of survival.

In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. But this would provide only the economic and not the emotional basis for a hierarchical society.

What is concerned here is not the morale of masses, whose attitude is unimportant so long as they are kept steadily at work, but the morale of the Party itself. All that is needed is that a state of war should exist. The higher up the ranks one goes, the more marked it becomes.

It is precisely in the Inner Party that war hysteria and hatred of the enemy are strongest…. it is often necessary for a member of the Inner Party to know that this or that item of war news is untruthful, and he may often be aware that the entire war is spurious but such knowledge is easily neutralized by the technique of doublethink.

Meanwhile no Inner Party [man] wavers for an instant in his mystical belief that the war is real… Technological progress only happens when its products can in some way be used for the diminution of human liberty. In all the useful arts the world is standing still or going backwards. [Emphasis added]

  1. Thank you Mary – I was collating some links as you suggested but thanks for the cue. I’ll just drip feed these few links and let President Vladimir Putin do the talking in the context of this thread …

    • St Petersburg International Economic Forum June 2016

    • Putin schools a WSJ reporter at his annual presidential conference, Dec 23 2016

    • On nuclear agreement (and Guantanamo) – Q&A forum April 2016

    Comment – as desperately as (the Nobel Peace laureate !***!) Obama is trying to perpetuate and provoke war (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine … with Iran and Russia itself in mind), President Putin is just as earnestly trying to avert it.

      • Thank you Berry – I am sure you are far more well read than I on such topics, but from my few peeks down that rabbit hole, it seems that they are certainly trying. I also believe that Putin will not bite (see video and transcribed quote below) – he is also very well versed on history and very much a STRATEGIC thinker.

        (Minor anecdote – consider how he responded to the expulsion of the 30+ Russian diplomats just before Christmas )

        I was making a list of “what Putin did” … “what Putin has weaponised”. I’ll come back when I can with more links on each but just off the top of my head:

        Putin … invaded Crimea, shot down MH17, murdered Litvinenko, is most corrupt politician on the globe (Panama papers), caused Brexit, hacked the DNC to expose HR Clinton vs Sanders, ‘hacked’ the US elections (whatever the **** that means), made all Russian athletes take performance-enhancing drugs (including and especially paraplegics), is developing teleportation as a weapon to threaten the security of the west (Telegraph – see below), hacked into ‘western’ computers to plant pornography to stir up the conspiracy that there is paedophilia going on (Putin cased ‘pizzagate’), can make Ronald Reagan AND Roosevelt turn in their graves …

        I am sure Mary would agree that the ‘accused’ has a right to be heard …
        • Re weaponising teleportation:
        • Putin’s response (hilarious – say no more):

        • On the Panama Papers (and some very important background insights):

        With specific reference to the WWI connection … note Putin’s statement at 4:15 …
        * “Pit one against the other – this worked with flying colours during the tragic years of World War I. The country was brought to the brink of collapse. In today’s situation this is a futile attempt.“

        He then goes on to talk about ‘the Panama Papers’ specifically. Please watch / read and enjoy.

        There is indeed an adult in the room !!

        • Wrong-o.
          Zorry, Fish. Mary does NOT think “due process” extends to international affairs (other than in a courtroom setting and when does that ever happen?)
          Let nations hurl their invectives and their silly stories.

          As an American I did not appreciate Congress letting the daughter of Kuwait ambassador pretend to be a nurse. In 1990 she said she saw Saddam’s troops throw babies out of their incubators. But it wasn’t because I felt a foreign leader (Saddam) shouldn’t be maligned. It was because it made us look like jerks and more importantly it deceived our folks and our soldiers. That is treasonous.

          Should we “get” that daughter for crime? She was doing what is right for Kuwait. Goodonher. Anyway she was under 18, so not responsible.

          Apparently Hill and Knowlton (CIA) hired her to do it. Do I think we should get the CIA? And the FBI? Absotootle.
          The US punishment for treason is death.

          Does Putin (or anyone) “deserve” to be treated nicely, and to be believed? Surely not. They all lie like rugs. The better rule is Buyer beware!

          Media is naughty — and we have ways of disposing of them. Just change domestic laws to stop allowing concentration of ownership. Bing!

          Do I think Russia did MH17? No. I think Kerry did. That would be in his interest. I mean the cabal’s interest, for whom the poor sod works. (Was it in Julie’s interest to agree? Ah, quel question!)

          Do I think Putin killed the Polish leaders at Katyn? I don’t know the ins and outs of Poland enough to judge, but I would never say Vlad-o would be morally restrained about it. Or about anything. Recall the first go-round of disinfo about the 1940 Katyn massacre was equally put about by USSR and US.

          That disgusted me, but for the same selfish reasons as the Kuwait girl. “We” (Truman and Ike) continued to say the Russkies didn’t do Katyn. Yes, the Russkies did do Katyn, as eventually came out in the wash. By protecting Commies from the disgrace of blame for Katyn we were … um… see, here is where I say the 2 superpowers were always in bed together. Why should Eisenhower lie to protect our enemy, the USSR?

          Did Putin hack the US elections? If he didn’t he should have. That’s his job. Get the best deal for Russia, not get the best deal for the Seppo’s or for humanity.

          So, Fish, why isn’t Mary saying nicer things, like “all nations should be truthful with one another”? Because my saying it cannot have any effect. The people of each nation are always desirous of winning – at whatever the cost. “Love thine enemy” is (sorry, God) silly.

          Inter arma silent leges. In war law is silent.

          On the other hand, Fish, I like your sorting out fact from nonsense. I like Dee having hissy fits over MH17. I like the magnifique Laurent Louis telling Belgian parliament they stink. Was that the word he used? Oh well.

          And good on James for continuing to try. One has to say what is right and wrong — how else can people engage their cerebrum?

          • Your trigger – babies in ovens in Kuwait (one of the lowest and most obscene examples of mainstream propaganda) – so when John Kerry, Samantha Power and their very big group of accomplices throughout the US, the EU and the UN talk about the Syrian Government and Russians bombing hospitals and schools in Syria when in fact the opposite is happening, I just want to analyse what was said, who they said it about, who said it and WHY they said it. (BTW – Speaking of which, I forgot add Yemen to my original post – there … Added).

            Allow me to go off topic for a moment (I meant to post this on an earlier thread – hard to find time to create the right envelope of words).

            I have previously cited Vanessa Beasley, Eva Bartlett, Anthony Ashdown and could also mention Carla Ortiz, Jan Oberg, Charlotte d’Ornellas et al. but let me just share the following.

            This is the Grand Mufti of Aleppo, Sheikh Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun being interviewed in Ireland – why was he in Ireland? – because he couldn’t a permit to enter anywhere else in the US or Europe – because they could NOT AFFORD for their evil narrative to be utterly shattered and discredited about Syria – a narrative much worse than babies in ovens and on par with WMDs in Iraq!!)

            I hope all readers will take the time to hear (read subtitles) what he has to say. It only has 1395 views – it should have millions!

            Back on topic later. 🙂

          • “Well, that was quite a harsh way to shake moralistic illusions off of someone. 98-99% (if not more) of people perceive their behavior as determined by morals (and in part it really is) and are too afraid of thinking things gould be diverse for those in the upper echelons.
            Like they anthropomorphize everything, humans also moralize all things.

            Putin would have hardly reached his position without being in league with the world government team; however, it couldn’t be more obvious that at a certain time they broke up.
            Xi J. P. doesn’t seem to be part of the team either (although other, very powerful China-related people, specially in Hong Kong, are, and South Korea elites are turning to globalism)

            “If so, our biologically-grounded habits will have turned out to be our undoing. We will have said:

            “Sure, powerful, ruthless types, do as you wish. We are averse to being confrontational with you. Go on, take our liberties. Oh, you want our money too? Hmm. That’s not so nice. Oh, you want our health? Gee, I didn’t know that was included. Hey wait a minute. You say you have the droit de seigneur? Crikey, I think you guys are going a bit too far.”

            Since you are familiar with evolutionary psyc. and not in denial at all about it, I’ll ask a question.
            What you say in that quote is how the (normal! I know about it just by way of observation…) human mind has evolved.
            It has evolved this way to make it possible for the “communities”, “family”, “marriage” to be both possible and stable.
            There is society, every society, starting from family, because there’s that kind of (not free) mind.
            Give orders without knowing you are giving them (and how deeply you love to); follow orders without knowing you are following them (and how deeply you feel the need for it).

            Those same traits, properly exploited, allow world government and its being welcomed/accepted.

            I find it odd that some outcomes of a biological reality are amazing and some are awful to the same person.

            If you had to choose, what would your fave scenario be, 1) Humans as non-social animals but free (in body, when possible, and in mind all the time) or 2) Humans how they are, grouped in families and larger groups with their unlimited capability of being mentally manipulated AND eventually world government?

            Because those 2 are the choices. You aren’t going to get one side of each medal and get a new medal whose 2 sides you like out of them while binning the two you dislike.

  2. If they’ve been chipping pets , for twenty years , how do we know if they are not doing it to babies ?
    Euthanasia via lethal injection is the murder of very ill seniors
    and they’ve been doing for a decade or more in all states in Oz
    ( despite we been told the contrary ) .
    ” The ministry of truth has become the ministry of lies and propaganda .”
    eg ; the defence force in the Middle East .
    What are we defending over there ? Our way of life or our
    borders . Neither , so why ?
    Looks like we’ve gone the way and beyond of Orwells 1984 .
    68 years have passed since the details were presented to us as compulsory high school literature .

  3. Rain Liivoja, in a 2015 article in the International Review of the Red Cross, says:

    “The past few decades have seen an extraordinary
    technological change in conflicts and in military capabilities generally. Reportedly more than 100 States have established dedicated cyber-warfare units within their armed forces or intelligence agencies.1 These units help States fend off hostile cyber-operations targeting their national infrastructure and – though this might not be equally publicized – undertake such operations against an adversary.

    “Nearly as many States are said to operate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and allegedly some 30 States already have or are developing armed UAVs.2 Military applications of artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and biotechnology are being actively devised and implemented.”

    Note to James O’Neill: how could “the Law of Warfare”, much less IHL — International Humanitarian Law (principally the Geneva Conventions) have any role in this?

  4. I am NOT a numerologist. I DO have the opinion that many major events are scripted in advance by some dark forces and that these people do use numeric symbolism to “encode” their doings. So I look for their fingerprints to see if my opinion has any validity.

    That being said, I can offer these facts that might throw light on the purpose of “1984” or might be pure coincidence. It will be clear that – if design is there – the designers were well acquainted with Judaic kabbalah.

    1. The number derived from the Hebrew word transliterated as Kabbalah is 137, a number wondered at by physicists and number theoreticians. The gematria of the names of its letters comes to 678. 678 – 137 = 541, the gematria of Israel.

    1a. The English gematria of the words “Illuminati” amd of “IllumiNAZIon” and “IlluminaZION” is likewise 678.

    2. The digital roots of the hebrew gematria for the four letters of Yahweh concatenate to 1565. This is called the small gematria. The sum of the gematria of the names of the letters = 45, the standard gematria for AlephDaletMem, Adam. “God becomes Man”. There is another too complex in its derivation to describe here that generates the obverse “Man becomes God” that uses Torah with the number 666.

    3. The sum of the residues of 1565 with respect to the 7 gematric numbers of the first verse in Torah = 1776, year the Bavarian Iluminati were founded, allegedly by Adam Weishaupt. (Weis = wise, Haupt = head. Wise Guy). Adam means “man” in Hebrew. See item 3.

    4. The year 1984 BC was 1776 in the Hebrew Calendar with its epoch of October 7 3761 BC.

    5. The real name of George Orwell was Eric Blair with the English gematria of 239. PrimeSum(1984) MOD 239 = 137.

    As I said up front, this could all be pure coincidence. Therefore it is deeply ironic, in my opinion, that the English gematria of “Pure Coincidence” = 666.

    The English gematria I use here is modelled precisely on the Hebrew system There is another system called the Agrippa Code.

    One further numerical wizardry comes from combining these two.

    My gematria for Rothschild = 512. The Agrippa code for the same text = 372 which is identical to the Hebrew gematria for Bar Nafli, Son of the Fallen One, a name for the Judaic Messiah. The spelled gematria for Bar Nafli is 1178, the year that Maimonides finalised the epoch and rules of the Modern Hebrew calendar. 666 + 572 = 1178

    A similar inspection of key numbers in the 911 mass sacrifice ritual and both World Wars produces a plethora of such coincidences.

    To be blunt – if these are not all coincidences – the mind is irresistably drawn to the suspicion that Judaism is Satanism, that the Messiah anticpated in their year 5778 (2018 Gregorian) is Lucifer. The precise date is May 7 and the mathematical manipulations in support of that date were constructed by an intelligence that seems more than human
