Too many of us appear to be ignoring the literary greats that have stood the test of time and have proven to be more in the way of prediction manuals than entertainment or works of fiction. What kind of foresight did these literary geniuses have that seems to have skipped over most of us? Just what message did Orwell mean to convey when he penned Animal Farm? Think about what happens to Boxer after he collapses due to his injuries. Boxer and the other animals believe he can finally retire in peace. But that isn’t what happens. Much to our horror, he is loaded into a car and taken to the glue factory. Benjamin, a Donkey, can read and realizes that the car belongs to a knacker, a term used in the novel for a sick and useless animal, which tells Benjamin the fate of Boxer. Benjamin has no conviction and doesn’t oppose nor support the rebellion that is happening. Benjamin represents the modern-day intellectuals who chose to turn a blind eye to the global reset happening around us. Benjamin is every person who claims they are not political or refuses to see what is happening worldwide. We, to some extent, are all a version of Boxer or Benjamin. Klaus Schwab’s eugenicist lieutenant, the abominableYuval Noah Harari – dubbed the Himmler to his Hitler – said the quiet part out loud in a recent TED Talks interview. And this should frighten us all.
This is my copy of Animal Farm from 9th grade. Decades later, I realize that this brilliant work was more than satire – it was a prediction of something that would repeat itself.— Smug Potato (@PotatoSmug) February 20, 2022
If you are mindlessly cheering the abuse and death of those who seek freedom, you need Orwell. Now. pic.twitter.com/nNmSG2CvDE
People like him — the global elites — view the rest of us like worker bees, machines, that when we are no longer useful, we are disposable and replaceable. We are an industrial resource and nothing more, and certainly don’t belong in the same class as them. In his recent TED Talks interview on the subject of human uselessness, he made the following statements:
“People realize — and they’re correct in thinking that, — ‘The future doesn’t need me. You have all these smart people in California and in New York and in Beijing, and they are planning this amazing future with artificial intelligence and bio-engineering and in global connectivity and whatnot, and they don’t need me.
“If you go back to the middle of the 20th century — and it doesn’t matter if you’re in the United States with Roosevelt, or if you’re in Germany with Hitler, or even in the USSR with Stalin — and you think about building the future, then your building materials are those millions of people who are working hard in the factories, in the farms, soldiers. You need them. You don’t have any kind of future without them.
“Now, fast forward to the early 21st century when we just don’t need the vast majority of the population because the future is about developing more and more sophisticated technology, like artificial intelligence (and) bio-engineering.”
Harari explained that our only function left in society is that of what he calls a “data reservoir,” a tool for technocracy. He believes and explains further that most people around the world really don’t contribute much of anything to the growing advancement of artificial intelligence and bioengineering, except maybe for the data we have. Whatever it is we are doing to keep the world functioning and justify our existence will become redundant and easily replaced by technology, further justifying his opinion and the opinions of vile elitists like himself that we are disposable, replaceable, and obsolete. Elitists view themselves as Gods who sit in their ivory towers and have anointed themselves with the power to justify extinguishing life at their will.

Orwell was a genius and ahead of his time. If you’ve never read Animal Farm or 1984, or if it’s been a while since you have, I strongly suggest getting a copy of both and rereading them with adult eyes.
