George Orwell and the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy [Why 1984 Didn't Happen]
George Orwell and the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy [Why 1984 Didn't Happen]
Price: £1.92

2.0 out of 5 stars Overriding Agenda, 31 Aug 2014
What the author seems to forget is that there is an overriding agenda. The only reason this whole 1984 ethos works, is because people are compelled to consume information in the first place. If the only available information is propaganda, then all I know is lies.

As a result, all 1984 did was poison the minds of those who have read it, enough for them to fear it happening, and make it spread through group-fear psychology-dynamics. You infect yourselves with things to worry each other about, and form judgements on the smallest amount of information because the group agrees. Things like 1984 'are' exactly what they are disgussing. In itself, the work is propaganda to your emotions.

Luckily, there is a solution. Be sceptical of 'any' information you sonsume.

I could listen to Jiddu for days and days. He threw out what I knew so far and brought it back to where it counts.

The words of other men, regardless about what are just shallow words. Jiddu makes you think about yourself and then others make more sense.

Richard not only hits the nail on the head, but drives it home in one hit. This is an awesome book.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book, 3 Feb 2014
I wish I had seen Dr. Peck had written this rubbish before I bought 'The Road Less Travelled'. I wouldn't have bothered buying the first book otherwise.

For a Christian and Psychiatrist, he has some very low views of other people.

When it comes to consistency, Dr. Peck is a 'loser'! His true self emerges in his writings, undeniably.

2.0 out of 5 stars Losers?!, 3 Feb 2014
I started reading this and was immediately touched by the main course of the book. But then, while the author describes psychological states in his patients as often needing psychiatric help and describes them as people, later in the book he refers to some people as 'losers'. Should that not be 'people less fortunate' or 'people with a harder start in life'?

So where this all begins quite seriously and nicely 'Dr.' Peck suddenly drops the bar and refers to what might just be potential customers as 'losers'. Yep, a psychiatrist calling people losers. I don't get it. Surely he'd know it is just a name. A concept to throw about from some imagined place up high above the loser. Mr. Peck is 'nothing' and has proven it with his words. He has in fact let us know to what level he will stoop to describe any of us if we fit his pattern of 'loser'

Are all of your potential customers losers until you see them Dr. Peck? After that, I came across a paragraph where excuses are made for the greed in the world by calling it love for the people you want to nurture with that money. That's pretty sick indeed.

Perhaps Mr. Peck needs some of his own treatment. Perhaps Mr. Peck is a loser in his head.

I no longer suffer from consumerism, man-made fear or the lies peddled for truth by govt and religion alike. They are illusory and merely divert one from the real problem with man. The ego.

5.0 out of 5 stars QUALITY!!!, 14 Sep 2011
Why do people always go on about quality!!

It's a digital signal. It either works or it doesn't. You only get quality loss on analogue signals. It's not rocket science.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feels cheap, 4 July 2011
I don't like the menu system on this. It also feels cheap and the sound quality is a bit naff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice and strong but...., 23 May 2011
This review is from: Ninjitsu Black Leg Wraps (Misc.)
These are good leg wraps, but is there any need for the stitched in playwell logo right in the middle on the front.
