"In accordance to the principles of doublethink, it does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is, that victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous.
The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labour. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. In principle, the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects, and its object is not victory over Eurasia or Eastasia, but to keep the very structure of society intact."
- George Orwell
- Eternal War - The bipartisan Military-Industrial Complex has found the perfect eternal enemy: Islam. If you follow the Constitution you declare war on Germany, Japan or Spain. But then you need to make peace with those nations once the war ends.
- But 1,400 years of aggression by Islam all you need do is claim you are fighting amorphous "Terrorists". You never have to make peace because there is no one to make peace with. Plus you always use terror to justify expanding the 1984 Police Surveillance State.
- Congress has deliberately abdicated their power to declare war, but no matter what Congress keeps the $$$$ flowing to the Military-Industrial Complex to fund the wars they like to claim they are concerned about.
