One of the earliest intellectual activities we do as humans is learn to count. On fingers and toes on our Momma’s lap, we learn the fundamental truth of Math. It’s right up there with Language as a first means to interpret our reality.
In George Orwell’s 1984, absolute and total control is exercised by the State. So if the State can compel a citizen to agree that “2+2=5” then, in abased fashion, the State can conform its citizens into any reality of its choosing.
“We’ve ALWAYS been at war with Eurasia.”
Another fundamental truth we learn youngest is the difference between Male and Female. We learn this by how differently they sound, look, smell and feel. We know the difference between our father and mother.
So when the State, through a tax-funded institution like a university or in the Military or the Executive Branch, compels conformity to the notion that a Male can become a Female, it crushes a core foundation stone of the human experience. If it can do that then the State can conform its citizens to accept any version of reality that propagates the power and survival of the State. It can hide its flaws, cover its lies and camouflage its excesses.
“This is the strongest economy EVER.”
