    The Helios Biblios Hour (the book of the Sun) George Orwell 1984 you' living it.

    in Current Events

    I must say I believe, or fear, that taking the world as a whole these things are on the increase. Hitler, no doubt, will soon disappear, but only at the expense of strengthening (a) Stalin, (b) the Anglo-American millionaires and (c) all sorts of petty fuhrers° of the type of de Gaulle. All the national movements everywhere, even those that originate in resistance to German domination, seem to take non-democratic forms, to group themselves round some superhuman fuhrer (Hitler, Stalin, Salazar, Franco, Gandhi, De Valera are all varying examples) and to adopt the theory that the end justifies the means. Everywhere the world movement seems to be in the direction of centralised economies which can be made to ‘work’ in an economic sense but which are not democratically organised and which tend to establish a caste system. With this go the horrors of emotional nationalism and a tendency to disbelieve in the existence of objective truth because all the facts have to fit in with the words and prophecies of some infallible fuhrer. Already history has in a sense ceased to exist, ie. there is no such thing as a history of our own times which could be universally accepted, and the exact sciences are endangered as soon as military necessity ceases to keep people up to the mark. Hitler can say that the Jews started the war, and if he survives that will become official history.He can’t say that two and two are five, because for the purposes of, say, ballistics they have to make four. But if the sort of world that I am afraid of arrives, a world of two or three great superstates which are unable to conquer one another, two and two could become five if the fuhrer wished it.1 That, so far as I can see, is the direction in which we are actually moving, though, of course, the process is reversible

    The Golden Finals...The 1984 Season, Part One.

    in Sports

    In the first of a series, Steve takes us back to the Tipping Point of modern NBA History, the 1984-85 Finals Classics between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics, where Larry Bird and Magic Johnson would finally meet with the World Championship on the Line. This episode sets the table for what would become the gold standard for competition in the NBA. The subplots were just as compelling,as  the League was stocked with stars such as Bernard King, Isiah Thomas, Mark Aguirre, The Doctor, Moses, Walter Davis, Sidney Moncrief, and their newest Star, Houston Center Ralph Sampson. We would see the legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ascend to the throne of the NBA's alltime scoring leader, surpassing former rival and Laker Legend Wilt Chamberlain. Behind the scenes a new force would take the reins of the league and begin to mold its future...Commissioner David Stern. But the Basketball world would finally get what it was waiting for, the winner-take-all matchup between the irresistible object and the immovable force...Bird vs. Magic.
