"America 2014: An Orwellian Tale" by Dawn Blair
This book starts where 1984 left off, and is a chilling tale that seems all too real. Frankly, this Orwellian story ends with Bush in his Fourth term, and if you don't think that is a possibility, then you are a naive member of the DLC or DNC (of which there are far too many).
Fascism creeps in on cat's feet sometimes, as it has been encroaching upon our Constitution and civil liberties under four years of the Bush administration. Now, as Bush begins the next four, we will move from Torquemada Ashcroft to the Torturer's Apprentice Gonzales as our head of the Department of (In)Justice. It just gets worse with each passing day.
This is a novel by a largely unknown author who has accomplished the most difficult task for a novelist: writing a sequel, with skill and verisimilitude, of another person's work. As the website for "America 2014: An Orwellian Tale" notes:
We receive many books that are not bestsellers, and we try to give them all a chance. But we only offer three premiums a week. So we only occasionally get a chance to promote such books.
This book, however, we couldn't put down. It is just too close to the truth, just a couple of turns of the screw away from what America is becoming.
Tom DeLay, Grover Norquist, Antonin Scalia, John Ashcroft, and countless others of the Busheviks have been unabashed in saying their goal is one-party rule of the self-described (albeit Uber hypocritical) "morally righteous" Republican Party.
Dominance of the communication media is the tool by which they are achieving their goal, along with stolen elections, a federal court stacked with pre-enlightenment creationist loyalists to the Bush Cartel, and gerrymandered congressional districts.
But at the heart of their control on the psyche of America is their near complete ability to disseminate propaganda through a docile, corporate media, at a time when the entertainment, news and political worlds have nearly merged into a single entity.
Winston Smith created lies for the Ministry of Truth, visual images and ads that were narcotics for the misled citizens of America. This is his story in the age of the Orwellian Bush Cabal.
At the end of the book, you will find a "The Revised Constitution of the United States of America," ratified by the one-party Republican state in 2009. We are almost there in content and in years. Indeed, it may arrive ahead of schedule.
For those who consider such talk alarmist, read this book. It's a little gift from a patriot who penned a fitting counterpart to Robert Kane Pappas' "Orwell Rolls" (DVD).
The party that controls the means of mass communication controls the nation. And the Busheviks believe they rule by divine decree, not by the choice of the voters. As Orwell predicted, such rulers will use endless wars against personified enemies to keep the masses lobotomized.
It is the end of the American revolution. These are not patriots who control our government. They are pre-enlightenment fascists.
And if the "F" work makes you shutter because it sounds so extreme, then you haven't yet understood what is happening here.
