The Modern Day Morlock

by: Kenneth Frawley

To feed, and profit, off the preferred food source: the plan is to slyly gain control. Pose as a friend, a caregiver, a good neighbor, a watchdog. Make full use of the common-enemy ploy to instill fear, and chant that all-too-false promise 'We're looking out for you,' which actually means, 'We're conditioning you!'

The FoxNews channel, and all of its maniacal predators-posing-as-news-anchors, are focused on creating, via a steady diet of rank propaganda, an America with a one size fits all mentality, a mentality that doesn't question, doesn't challenge, doesn't argue, an American citizenry that heeds the rules of a WASP ideology as defined by narrow-minded capitalists who see the populous as a herd of cash cows.

'America would be better off if we were all Christians. It would look like New York City during the Republican National Convention. In fact, that's what I think heaven is going to look like.' --Ann Coulter

The vision is to utterly, and thoroughly, dumb down the US populous so as to achieve the modern-day Morlock's dream of a utopian society in which only two types of human beings exist, those that rule and those that mindlessly obey, whether they like it or not. The creation of an America in which the party of the second part, the modern-day Eloi obediently conforms, rejects science, converts to a single, mandated religion, never speaks out, never rises up, each person a carbon-copy of the other. In short, Morlock heaven. Yes, a frightening Orwellian nightmare, no doubt.

Yet, to achieve the Morlock paradise, the Liberals, those silly people who actually think, thirst for knowledge, which includes science, art and music, who are compassionate and demand individuality, have got to go. Those ridiculous people who like to read, and understand that bias must be set aside in order to let research and science and its acquisition of facts provide direction, are unpatriotic.

For the modern day Morlock, such thinking people, who always push for progress, discovery and advancement, are a horror. They refuse to get with the programme and worship the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. They view change as a good thing, and contend that settling for the status quo will lead to books being burnt, or rotting on library shelves, and an eventual stagnation of the species. Therefore, the Liberals must go!

After that lot, it's on to people whose features are not like the Morlock's, people who do not speak the same language, people with limps, people with acne, people who like opera and classical music, people who detest country music, vegetarians. The list, in actuality, will be the only changing thing in that Morlockian utopian state, as they continually add to their compilation of dos & don'ts. Thus, endlessly, the Morlocks will point a finger at anyone they don't like as anti-American, for a common enemy will always be needed to sway the great herd. Yet, in truth, it is the modern day Morlock that hates America, and Americans, unless they are exactly like themselves. They've forgot the Nation's welcome: 

'Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!'

They do not understand that the US was intended a melting pot, and once proud to be so. They do not understand the concept of democracy, a state in which the individual is allowed to speak, to believe, and to be different. They do not understand that America is a country populated with peoples, not battalions of look-alike worker bees, speaking one sole language, believing in one sole supernatural being, buying only the products and services instructed.

'People who watch my show are smart.' --Bill O'Reilly 

Obey, and all is well. For obedience is essential. Remain a frightened number of the great herd, buying rant-filled books that only contain further mind-numbing, senseless babble, no knew ideas, philosophies, technology, nothing but sheer, fear-instilling propaganda. Go ahead pray in school, if you are a Christian. All others, the Shinto faithful, Buddhists, Hindus, Jewish, forget it!

'Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.' --Samuel Johnson
