Thought policing on the internet

 

Those of you familiar with the brilliant novel 1984 by George Orwell will know exactly what I’m talking about. If you aren’t, then basically the Thought Police arrest, and quite often kill innocent civilians if they are caught criticizing the government or even if they are suspecting to be thinking bad things about the government! One only needs to look at Justin Bieber’s Google+ stream to find a perfect example. People just mindlessly attack people who have a different opinion, hence why I call them “The Internet Thought Police”.  I have an entirely different, extremely painful type of sarcasm for these people. They deserve it. So why do people do this? Well, that’s a mystery not even the culprits themselves know. But here’s a few things you should know about them:

1. Most of them are quite stupid. You simply need to look at the way they completely ignore all the necessary spelling and grammar to tell that their intelligence is a few notches below plant level.

2. They will not stop until you have completely vanished from the scene of the crime.

3. They worship whatever they are arguing with you for like a RELIGION.

4. Main practitioners of Thought Policing that I have encountered are;

Justin Bieber fans.

Annoying, whiny kids that play Call of Duty far too much.

Xbox/PS3 fanboys that constantly argue that their beloved console is superior to the other.

And finally… MY LITTLE PONY FANS. Recently a TV show based of the MY LITTLE PONY TOYS has been aired over in America. Most of the fans are way too old for that stuff, which is creepy. A bunch of you reading this probably won’t have a clue what I’m talking about. They actually trended on Google+ a while ago. Now I’m going to give you an example. In this video of two people playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent together one of them mentions the show. And then THIS happens. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jWsiyXoTz0 See what I mean?

So now that that’s over, I’ll tell you why it is bad and why it should stop. When you argue about something religiously it makes the community of fans look bad. Too many people do it, non-fans think ALL of the fans are like that, making  them hate you deeply.

It pretty much advertises you as a moron, arguing over something so small.

PEOPLE. WILL. HAVE. DIFFERENT. OPINIONS.  The Thought Police thinks EVERYONE loves their favourite things as much as they do and are extremely offended when people actually don’t. You must accept nobody is the exact same as somebody else. They can think what they like, you can’t change that.

So now I’ve hit a bit of a writer’s block so I’ll end here.

P.S. If you do get harassed by the thought police, then drop a decent amount of sarcasm their way for me, will you?

  1. Hi Frank. Thanks for sharing the funny video. I agree that sometimes people can be too strong in their opinions about things. They try to make others like the same things they do. It’s great to have a strong opinion about something. It’s NOT great to expect everyone else to share the same opinion. Thanks for the reminder.
