Watch “George Orwell and 1984: How Freedom Dies” on YouTube

Personal liberty requires economic liberty; when the latter is suppressed, the former can never manifest.

Whether you’re more in the Orwell camp or the Huxley camp, the problem always begins with a healthy dose of collectivism or statism. Throughout the 20th century, these socioeconomic conditions always seems to deteriorate into oligarical collectivism and eventually into totalitarianism.

The concept of “micro-aggression” is just one of many tactics used to stifle differences of opinion by declaring some opinions to be “hate speech,” instead of debating those differences in a marketplace of ideas.
