Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/13/20

George Orwell - Wikipedia

Football, it seemed to me, is not really played for the pleasure of kicking a ball about, but is a species of fighting.”   —   George Orwell

(I’m fairly sure, his being a Brit and all, that George was actually referring to Soccer.  But, this quote could very easily refer to American Football, which has been described as a kind of war.  Since George was opposed to totalitarianism/authoritarianism, and an outspoken supporter of democratic socialism, I won’t even make fun of his “football”.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine gun.   —   George Orwell

(Aah.  Such a Brit, that George!  But speaking of food, have any of our brilliant leaders tried offers of food, and other forms of humanitarian assistance, to North Korea, as opposed to all these threats and saber rattling?  Our corporate media spends SO much time either making fun of Kim Jung-un, and/or demonizing him, to the point where our nukes are at the ready, with 45’s finger itching to push the button.  I have long been a follower of global relations, and I can’t remember the last time we made an overt, positive gesture to the overly so-called “rogue nation”.  Start out by sending the dude a case of Snickers bars, for Christ’s sake!  Remember about 30 years ago, or so, people were asking:  “Don’t the Russians love their children too?”  Be well and do good, friends.  And, try not to buy into the hype.)   —   YUR

(Easy) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/11/15

Version of the flag of Animalism, in Animal Fa...

Version of the flag of Animalism, in Animal Farm, by George Orwell. The flag of Animal Farm consists of a green field with a hoof and a horn. According to the book, the green represents the fields of England, while the hoof and horn represents the Republic of the Animals. This version is based on the hammer and sickle and the red flag of the Soviet Union, probable reference of the green flag. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”   —   George Orwell

(And, like it or not, humans are animals too!  Yes, even the ones who display vegetable traits.  Unfortunately, human nature seems to preclude true equality.  Some are always going to want more.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Who controls the past controls the future.  Who controls the present controls the past.”   —   George Orwell

(This is why we shouldn’t allow some of these *revisionists* – who want to minimize some of our past statesmen’s accomplishments, while giving greater focus to the statesmen who *better represent* their values – have their way with our schools’ history books.

This cryptoquote would have been really hard without the author’s name!  And, it’s the first Orwell quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
