Make 1984 Fiction Again: George Orwell, 666 and the Antichrist Regime

Make 1984 fiction again: The American justice system has been weaponised to keep an aging president in power

The iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984, depicts a totalitarian society where the government possesses complete control over citizens’ lives. It follows the story of Winston Smith, a low-ranking party member who rebelliously fights against their oppressive rule and is brainwashed into submission, finally tortured in Room 101.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power”

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

The party manipulates and distorts reality through propaganda and language control. The book contains a prophetic warning and twinned with the Book of Revelation, it unveils the path to a total dictatorship. Look with honesty at the West today and you’ll find freedom of speech is being abolished by those seeking to cancel all other opinions. If the elite can weaponise the justice system to destroy their chief political opponent, then Americans only have the illusion of a democratic choice.

“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

Self-delusion and censorship are at the heart of woke culture. Orwell warned, “If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”

“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

The novel warns readers of the dangers of dictatorship and the importance of preserving freedom by staying alert to propaganda and fighting for truth. The novel’s central message is that freedom means the liberty to declare the truth, even if others are offended. The language and culture of dictatorship begins with compelled speech, as people are forced to say, “2+2=5,” or, “That man is a woman.”

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two makes four. If that is granted, all else follows”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

One of the key aspects addressed in the novel is the manipulation of language, the use of propaganda and the control of thought. While this novel is set in a dystopian future, the themes it explores are relevant today.

“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

Today, woke minds are dominating the education systems and censoring the past, controlling who the young think they should vote for. Woke culture represents a phenomenon that should not be taken lightly. If allowed to continue unchecked, its end will be an absolute totalitarian regime, like Orwell’s 1984, or the Antichrist system of the Book of Revelation.

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast?”

– Revelation 13:4

Cancel culture is driven by outrage, and while its patrons argue it is a way to hold people accountable for their actions, in reality, it only serves to silence free speech and stifle discussion. It pertains to a one-sided cancelling of the opposition. It represents the weaponisation of the education, media and entertainment systems to control who can wield political power.

He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

– Revelation 13:16-17

Woke culture embraces a systematic form of coercion, harassment and public shaming, designed to silence opinions that do not comply with those of the dominant narrative. It’s Mao’s China reborn, with a modern twist. Young people are indoctrinated by woke teachers and scream phrases on TikTok about intolerance, unaware, that everything they’re saying was carefully fed to them by a system of weaponised brainwashing.

If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism

– President Ronald Reagan

Orwell’s protagonist Winston Smith repeatedly argues that the government, with control of the education system, has the power to make people believe anything. If they can convince people that 2+2=5, then they can make them believe anything. Woke culture does the same.

When the elite forces people to agree that a sportsman, who just smashed all female records, is a woman, the prophecy of Orwell has come to pass: “2+2=5”

Woke culture is a way for the dominant narrative to control people’s thoughts and perceptions. It dictates what is right and wrong, and anyone who dares to challenge it is punished. This is the antithesis of free speech and democracy. Freedom of speech means being able to express oneself without fear of censorship or arrest.

“For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable – what then?”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

The Bible describes the coming Antichrist regime, which will be a totalitarian government that asserts complete control over people’s thoughts, movements and beliefs. Orwell predicts this form of government begins with control of language, expression and thought, and the signs are everywhere today. St Paul says the Antichrist system will force believers to deny their faith or face the consequences.

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God

– 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

The antichrist regime will use deception to gain power and manipulate reality to their advantage. Woke culture is preparing people by manipulating reality and compelling people to obey. It enables the dominant narrative to control people’s thoughts and perceptions by punishing anyone who dares to challenge it.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

In 1984, the government creates a contemporary language called Newspeak, designed to limit people’s thoughts, expressions and ability to comprehend reality. In the same way, woke culture tries to control language, and rewrite history, by dictating which words and phrases are acceptable and which are not. Forcing people to enter the delusion of another by compelling the use of another’s imaginary pronouns is just the beginning. Denouncing your nation’s history, its heroes and achievements is all a system of control. They say, “Only we, (the woke), control the truth.”

China’s Chairman Mao commanded books to be burnt and rewritten, as did Hitler, and today the elite demand movies must be remade, books censored and politicians silenced or arrested

Partisan, politically motivated prosecution has also arrived in America and the U.S. has ceded the moral authority to reprimand regimes that routinely arrest political opponents. How can you criticise those whose example you follow?

“One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

In Russia, the political opponents of the regime are routinely arrested on trumped-up charges. In 2023, in an unprecedented move, the frontrunner to challenge President Biden, Donald Trump was indicted. This dangerous precedent of political repression sets the tone that those in power can silence their opponents in the United States with impunity. This move undermines and delegitimises the democratic process. Election interference has been accepted, as the rule of law is weaponised. Orwell foresaw it.

For the first time, arresting your political opponent is a feature of American politics

George Orwell was an atheist, struggling to reconcile his lack of faith with the religious culture he embraced. He attended his local church, had his two marriages blessed in the church and asked for an Anglican funeral. He could quote passages from the Bible and the Common Prayer Book.

Orwell incorrectly predicted that totalitarianism would include sexual repression, but the Book of Revelation declared the opposite – that the spirit of sexual perversion would take control of the land, and it would be promoted and supported by the dictatorship.

You allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality…For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury

– Revelation 2:20, 18:3

When children are forced to watch grown men in bondage gear thrust their groins, calling it representation, we know Orwell was wrong. Dictatorship and sexual perversion are combined in the end time Antichrist regime.

“So long as they are not permitted to have standards of comparison, they never even become aware that they are oppressed”

– Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

1984 is an easy read despite containing 304 pages; many of the author’s assumptions about the role of religion have been found to be wrong. Today, it is men and women of faith who are offering resistance to the regime, whilst the left-leaning liberals have collapsed into the beginnings of dictatorship. Orwell’s 1984 is best read in the light of St John’s Book of Revelation. Orwell says compelled speech constitutes the foundation of dictatorship, St John says compelled worship sets an equal foundation.  

They did not repent of their murders [abortion, killings in lawless cities] or their sorceries [drug addictions] or their sexual immorality or their thefts

– Revelation 9:21
