The current conspiracy theory overheard on overnight talk radio, perhaps on Coast to Coast AM, or possibly, Midnight in the Desert, is that George Orwell was a time traveler from the future, who was stranded here, and then wrote 1984 as a desperate attempt to save us from our selves and consequently save his ‘future’ self from having to make this trip in the first place and, thus, getting marooned here in this seedy version of “tempus contemporary” . Complicated? Maybe. But there are no paradoxes on overnight talk radio.

Your Government shows up at Zero Dark:30 to WHAT? Arrest Roger Stone for “what legal experts call ‘process crimes’ – lying to investigators and trying to tamper with their work.” And Mueller is supposed to be the ‘Gold Standard’ of prosecutorial integrity? Winston Smith (1984) fared just about as well when Big Brother’s Jackbooted thugs(link NSFW) arrested he and his girlfriend.
The Daily Mail reports,
Roger Stone, a former longtime confidant of President Donald Trump, was arrested in Florida on Friday morning following a federal indictment resulting from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sprawling probe into Russian election meddling.
FBI agents armed with rifles took the self-described political dirty trickster into custody in a dramatic pre-dawn raid with their weapons drawn and a lead agent shouting ‘FBI! Open the door! We have a warrant!’
If you are a conservative wondering what happened to your web traffic and search engine ranking, this probably doesn’t come as a surprise. From ZDNet, “Google erases ‘Don’t be evil’ from code of conduct after 18 years“.
Until then, ‘Don’t be evil’ were the first words of the opening and closing sentences of Google’s code of conduct and have been part of it since 2000.
“The Google Code of Conduct is one of the ways we put ‘Don’t be evil’ into practice. It’s built around the recognition that everything we do in connection with our work at Google will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct.”
Poof! Google disappeared the concept of not being evil. Now they just have “[a high bar] for practical as well as aspirational reasons.” I’m not so sure that is very reassuring.
So what’s a mere $73.5 Billion among ‘friends’. Heh.

**Oscar Wilde – from his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that, “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”. Hmmm. George and Oscar in the same post. A Classical Two’fer.
