The Lottery

“The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned, even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory. There was a whole tribe of men who made their living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had nothing to do with the Lottery, which was managed by the Ministry of Plenty, but he was aware (indeed everyone in the party was aware) that the prizes were largely imaginary. Only small sums were actually paid out, the winners of the big prizes being nonexistent persons.”


― George Orwell, 1984

  1. JR: Excellent Observer Of Sociology Which He Yet FAILS To Understand Fully

    Ho ho ho ho ho--very good posting, JR--very pertinent and indicative of the horrific way things are. And yes, Orwell (Eric A. Blair) was brilliantly prescient, wasn't he?

    And if u noticed, u see big headlines about the most recent 1.3 billion (w. a "b") dollar pay-out, split btwn 3 people--whoopee, ho ho ho ho ho--which promptly must be paid right back to ZOG.

    Imagine the sort of society/culture which features such an addicted/gambling mentality--filled w. goons and scum, getting ready for the great slaughter coming-up now when/as US Dollar collapses evermore.

    All ZOG needs, u notice, is a prominent Jews-media--which formerly was able to censor and exclude any competition or alternative, excepting only now, temporarily, the present Internet, but which free Internet will surely not last much longer.

    Ur problem, JR, is ur inability to analyze the real cultural problem, beginning w. the deterministic, hence CYLCIC nature of reality (a), and then (b) history, as of Oswald Spengler's great theory in "Decline of the West."

    For u FAIL to grasp reality and history, JR, imagining ur pretended "free" will can change anything, u pretending to the anti-Christ, hubristic delusion of "good-evil," etc.

    But u surely also, no less, deserve credit for ur observing the cultural parallel for Orwell and the present sociologic circumstances--even if u have a different grasp for basic premises thereto, clinging to ur obsession for "moralism" and "good-evil."

    What can I say, JR?--u gotta LOSE ur inferiority/guilt -complex by which u cling-to and insist upon this CHILD'S "good-evil" delusion, known in Christian theology as Pelagian heresy. For that's all u express, ultimately, as u insist upon "morals."

    For ethics depends upon basic nature of reality--wherein there is no perfectly "free" human will, reality being DETERMINED according to absolute cause-effect and nothing else.

    Thus the "successful" society, as of former USA, begins w. heroes and conquerors--as of original Romans and Americans who didn't indulge moralism and "good-evil," they rather adhering, even if not so much consciously, to the determinist (objective) premise.

    Then however, these founding heroes and conquerors breed-up ever weaker generations who didn't have to fight like the founders did, the weaklings and inferiors evermore willing to indulge the NON-determinist premise hence the sort of moralism that u so often like to feature and express, JR. Thus the culture "declines" in Spenglerian CYCLIC fashion--which u observe well enough, at least for the details, but fail for fullest analysis of principle(s).

    For rule-of-law and Bill of Rights can ONLY exist upon the objective/determinist principle, JR--hence the real Christianity--which all TOTALLY escapes u, unfortunately, despite ur otherwise excellent observational abilities and literary appreciation, as of Orwell.

    JR: Excellent Observer Of Sociology Which He Yet FAILS To Understand Fully

    Ho ho ho ho ho--very good posting, JR--very pertinent and indicative of the horrific way things are. And yes, Orwell (Eric A. Blair) was brilliantly prescient, wasn't he?"

    JR answers Apsterian:

    Yes Apsterian, I agree about Eric Blair.

    I didn't understand Mr. Blair or 1984 when I was forced to read it - but I sure do now.

    My so-called "English teachers" were way more important than some would agree...

    Regarding Spengler - I had the same theory and feel that it is true - that there are cycles that populations go through - mated to the economic conditions their particular timeline of existence spans.

    Therefore predictable patterns can be seen from Eastern and Western civilizations that are common when technology touches those seemingly "independent" civilizations.

    Therefore cycles will occur that are common - and yes I think that is a big part of what we are going through now. For example after WW2 Americans worked in factories and drove truks and rayzed there familys and were happy - but successive generations - their kids wanted "more" - more for their mind. THere is a human struggle that springs from this - America went through that - then the Japanese since their country was ruined with the output of American production - so peaked at a later time - then their factory workers kids later went through the same problems as the factory worker kids of Americans.

    I think public enemy number one for this country is the media.

    It is NOT independent and NOT serving WE the People - whatever that is.

    The media in America do not serve WE the People.

    That is what needs to be fixed right now.

    Independent unfettered "news" by everybody competing for an audience. YOu know, that competition we are all suffering for.

    The competition that we are all suffering for MUST exist within our own media becausw our media is the only business mentioned in the Constitution except for the leeches that all themselves lawyers.

    1. JR Strives To Ignore Real Problems

      Good gravy, JR, but u don't read or else u don't unnastan' English. I explained to u the Jews-"media" is mere creature of the powers behind the central bank which just prints-up (and digitalizes) currency (not actual "money")--but this is obviously over ur head. U don't seem to grasp the concept of "money."

      So what?--the only thing u know is computers and somewhere, sometime u read about Jefferson and the Bill of Rights?

      I think it's good--very good--that u like Jefferson and have serious respect for B. of Rights, but surely u understand there's more to the subject--that there was a tradition and a long line of people that existed BEFORE Jefferson, which laid the ground for Jefferson and B. of rights.

      That's ur problem, JR, there's so little context to ur thought as u express fm what u write. U imagine u can "fix" the media--without even a word about the central bank which is literally just legalized COUNTERFEITING.

      That's why u're so hopeless, JR--u seem to have some good "instincts," perhaps, but u utterly lack the necessary depth and context. And there are other things about u which are downright repulsive and dangerous, first among them ur mindless and politically-correct tolerance and ignorance about Jews.

      Such then is "Decline of the West," JR, and it's absolutely deterministic--not subject to any serious change. The forest-fire cannot be stopped; it can only burn itself out.

      Hence we real patriots are in position only to (a) precipitate the inevitable, (b) maybe steer it, if possible, so it damages least, and (c) most of all, to prepare for the opportunities, if there are any, in the aftermath.

      I wouldn't say u're totally "clue-less" because at least u do know about Jefferson and B. of Rights, but there's more to it, for which u're utterly, horribly lacking, my friend--as about the central-bank and that irreplaceable Christian foundation which u know and care so little about.

    2. JR: u gotta attempt to trying to getting a grip on the REAL problem (of practical nature), the US Federal Reserve Bank legalized COUNTERFEITING, the real basis of all other organized crime in Jew S A and entire world (Fed isn't the only central bank). Here's a brief 3 min vid to serve as intro for ur understanding, followed then by a more detailed vid (30 mins) to get firmer grasp.

  4. Apsterian makes a lot of sense in his comments. I do think Christians have forfeited their rights by extending them to non-Christians in the name of "fairness" and equality. We should never have allowed non-Christians a place or a voice in our communities. It is the equivalent as Christ said of casting ones pearls to the swine. It leads to the degeneration of what we have in society today, such as government run lotteries.
