"The Life of Julia" And Obama's Orwellian Vision for a Fundamental Change In the Relationship Between Citizen and State

One of the central points of 1984 is that in true totalitarianism, the State must displace the natural allegiances of love -- romantic, familial, and brotherly (and, though Orwell might not agree -- Love of God, too)-- with a love of State.

The State must displace those so that it can occupy the central allegiance of a subject's life.

It would help the State to accomplish this goal if it could take over the functions of natural human relationships -- such as providing succor and support.

Such is Obama's vision, encapsulated in his Prototype Protagonist Julia-- who just happens to share a first name with the heroine in the Orwell novel.

At 31, the story tells us, "Julia decides to have a child. Throughout her pregnancy, she benefits from maternal checkups, prenatal care, and free screenings under health care reform." In due course she bears a son named Zachary, the only other character in the tale.

Harsanyi is right. Obama is setting forward a vision contrary to the American tradition of self-sufficiency--a welfare state that runs from cradle to grave. And it's a dishonest vision, because it presents all of these benefits as "free," never acknowledging that they are paid for through coercive taxation.

...

The most shocking bit of the Obama story is that Julia apparently never marries. She simply "decides" to have a baby, and Obama uses other people's money to help her take care of it. Julia doesn't appear to be poor; at various points the story refers to her glamorous career as a Web designer, and it makes no mention of her benefiting from poverty programs like Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

In 1999 Lionel Tiger coined the word "bureaugamy" to refer to the relationship between officially impoverished mothers of illegitimate children and the government. "The Life of Julia" is an insidious attack on the institution of the family, an endorsement of bureaugamy even for middle-class women.

Meanwhile, the Great Hope of the Common Man will net a record $12 million in a single celebrity fundraiser.

We're at war with Eurasia.

We have always been at war with Eurasia.

That said- it is incredibly insidious. Also: more than a little scary. When you add to the 'Life of Julia' stuff the Ministry of Truthiness is spreading the actual police state growth (Dept. Ed.

11 It must be a sad existence for these people. They really do want to wholly socialize this country, but they know they'll never do it by any honest interaction with the American people. So they lie. And treat the people they pretend to care about as subjects too dumb to care or think for themselves.

It's a hellish vision of the human race, and seriously, I think you have to be a terribly sad person to see it.

14 1984, Ampleforth: 'I have been able to recall one instance -- a possible instance. It was an indiscretion, undoubtedly. We were producing a definitive edition of the poems of Kipling. I allowed the word "God" to remain at the end of a line. I could not help it!'

25 I'm still kinda stuck on this:

>>Throughout her pregnancy, she benefits from maternal checkups, prenatal care, and free screenings under health care reform.

Is this an admission that employers will stop providing health insurance as a perk because the costs are soaring under Obamacare? Or did she get knocked up while she was "funemployed" and decide the abortion she underwent in college (paid for by her parent's health insurance--all hail Obama!) was enough abortions?

(Shit. If I'd understood 15 years ago how much our society would come to admire and respect women who make babies out of wedlock and depend on the government to raise them--look how "Julia" is being held up as an ideal--I'd have lived my life a lot different.)

Yuval Levin over at NRO summed it up, in my opinion:

"From the overarching narrative of drab dependency to the comically blunt and clumsy contrasts with Romney, the utterly unironic pseudo-edginess (“Julia starts her own web business”), the self-caricaturing lifestyle liberalism (“this allows her to volunteer at a community garden”), the un-self-conscious intermixing of the vocabularies of liberty and entitlement (“thanks to Obamacare, her health insurance is required to cover birth control”), the imagery of studied nonchalance, and the whole look and feel of the enterprise, it appears to have been created by people deeply immersed in the culture of overeducated twenty-something hipster self-effacement but unaware that it is all intended sarcastically. It’s like Portlandia earnestly offered up as a drama."

75 they are generally 'anti-authority figure', yet like the idea of the government giving them everything.

This is because, to them, 'Authority figures' are teachers and parents and even priests/ministers/rabbis. And Authority figure tells you what you can't do "don't do this, don't do that," and when they tell you want to do it is inevitably boring.

The government, on the other hand, is much like the Two Shady Characters in Pinocchio: promising a life free from care, a life of perpetual childhood- while, in reality, changing you from someone who can think for, and rely upon, themselves into someone who relies on others for all their subsistence, and is a slave.

84 Man, that Julia story makes me choke up like a loogie the size of Connecticut is in my throat. Maybe a little music will help me expectorate:

Mm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today
Equal work means equal pay
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

Yes!
Mmm, mmm, mm
Barack Hussein Obama


Yep, that worked. Puked that honker right out.

88 My wife sometimes pet sits for a family of academics with lots of cats, and she usually wants me to go with her for help. Anyway, they have a huge poster version of that "Yes We Did" soviet-esque image placed prominently in their home. Pisses me off every time.

Centered on the rear bumper of her Prius was an Obama sticker, one I had
not seen before. A gloater. Square in format, it shows a picture of
his face, in the Mussolini chin-raised eyes-at-half-mast pose, and below
the pic, the three words "Yes We Did."

I thought, you sure did. Didn't you?

I mean, cradle-to-grave socialism, right there, out in the open.

No doubt paid for by the planned masses of upper-class slaves, they're working on that bill now.

Seriously, did any "reporters" ask them how there were going to pay for this? Other than "making the productive classes pay for their crime of success?"

Are the people who came up with this nightmare ad campaign (because the implications are truly nightmarish - isolated, controlled, dependent subservient classes and brutal machinations in the background to fund them) still sitting in their tax-funded offices, blindly unaware of all this because they only listen to NPR and read HuffPo?

118 So, somewhat on topic...

My wife took our kids to get their hair cut yesterday. As they were waiting, my kids were playing (we take them to a place that caters to little kids- they have toys and such), and my daughter was getting a little too rambunctious. After warning her several times to stop, my wife tells her, "If I have to tell you again, I'm going to swat your bottom." Whereupon my daughter calms down and stops misbehaving.

Later, another lady remarks on it and says, "Would you really have spanked her?"

Wife: "Yes. But I've actually followed through enough that now they don't test me."

Turns out the lady is new to TX from CA, and was apparently afraid to spank her own children.

I told my wife, "You should have said, 'Well, you moved to Texas for a reason.'"

167 I keep saying that politics is about constituencies. Women want people to take care of them, but someone convinced them that men are bad and the gubmint that will give them all that they need is what they want. Or at least is trying to convince them of that.

Go to any gubmint office - the DMV, whatever - and you will find African American women working there in much larger proportion than in the population. Public sector jobs pay the bills. Go look at the jobs that were paid by the stimulus - jobs that are mostly where women work. Health care, education. Gubmint.

That's what the whole war on women thing is for.

To them, the slave is free as he wants not of food, not of shelter, not
of health care nor of employment.

171 Someone needs to make an interactive app that describes all of the things that DON'T exist as a result of Obama's vision.

- Here's the empty lot where a big, thriving office building full of eager employers would have been located, had it not been for the stranglehold of Obama Co. on the economy.

- Here's the empty space in the parking lot where Julia's cute new car would have been parked if Obama hadn't wrecked the car market with government interference.

- Here's the condemned, boarded-up shit hole building surrounded by gangs and drug dealers, which would have been renovated into a clean, affordable modern apartment building for Julia and her crotch-spawn get to live in, had it not been for Obama's higher taxes and costs on small businesses.

- Here's the spot on Julia's desk where a wonderful piece of time-saving technology would sit, except for the fact that there was no money to invest in the company so it could take a risk in inventing and developing it.

- Here's the empty chair at Zachary's school where the child from another family would have sat, but for the fact that they never had more children, because they were too busy paying for Julia's daily expenses.

172 They proclaimed that "It is Okay to Spank Your Child".....and even mockingly performed a "this is how you do it" on the floor of the assembly hall. ....Rush Limbaugh loved this so much, he did a whole show about it. Our legislature went a little futher with this subject, and passed a law that makes Parents legally responsible for any crimes that their minor children commit. ....So in OK, you can face jail time forany crimes thatyour kids under 18 commit. .....Which sort of justifies the right to spank.

It's an insight into the 'vision' that Barky's inner circle of true believers have become immersed in.

Another insight was when Barky told bold-facedly told Medvedev that he would be free tobe "more flexible" in his second term. ....This was not a 'gaffe'. .....He was dead serious. He thought his mic was off.

If Barky gets another Term.....it may very well be that last 'term' thatthis country sees. The term, 'term', will be eliminated altogether. ....Because congress has alreadyshown that they aretoo cowardly to do anything about the power grabs and crimes against the constitution,that this president has already done.

Too ridiculously obvious, the standardized "individual" according to neo-liberal Marxist Democrats. Diversity is just another virtual composite to be abused by the tax and spend addicts of debt.

Remember that mega-creepy ObamaCare commercial (that ran on Fox more than few times - Fox loved doing shit like that) with the guy being examined by his doctor on the stage in front of a full audience with people in the crowd screaming out the guy's personal medical history (to the guy's surprise). They thought that was a good ad to show people that every doctor, nurse, or temp worker will have access to every bit of ones personal medical details at the push of a button. Even most lefties found it incredibly creepy.

Yep. That's how these guys roll ... when they think they are making an "attractive" argument. These leftists aren't just dumb, they are totally twisted, defective individuals who are a blight on the Earth. And they're in charge. Yay!

Actually, we'll be more like "Julia when the dole runs dry."

258 Thanks to Obama, I'm as free as a deadbeat bird.

259 never forget, once they get on one type of dole, they can get all sorts of shit like section 8, EBT cards, medicare, medicaid, free cheese you name it. Then work off the books.

I know way too many people doing this. They do have to jump through a few hoops, and move when the social workers or housing authority tell them to.

To their credit, most of them drink and smoke up too much, probably to forget what fucking losers they are.

260 Obama even took care of my transvaginal mesh. Or Michelle did. I couldn't tell.

261 At age 67, 5 months before her death, evidence was introduced at her medical hearing that she had once beenaccused of smoking tobacco,she was sentenced to 6 months of re-education before she would be allowed onto the waiting list for free chemo.
Under Romney she retired at age 60 with a 401k account worth 5 million dollars.

262 But Romney is not conservative enough so the tea party should just say home and try again in 2016. /s or something like that.

264 "The State must displace those so that it can occupy the central allegiance of a subject's life.

It would help the State to accomplish this goal if it could take over the functions of natural human relationships -- such as providing succor and support."

This is really nefarious, too, b/c I was say the rank and file liberal/moderate Leftist inverts the directionality here. They would say (and this is what I believed) that you (meaning women, esp. but also to some extent non-powerful men) had to have allegiance to a very powerful, money dispensing state so that those bonds of family could not TRAP you in a life of what they would describe as sexual or economic slavery.

In the mind of at least some of the Left, and probably the vast majority of unthinking or naive liberals, the all-powerful state REALLY guarantees your freedom.

265 They told me that if I voted for McCain I'd see a future straight out of 1984...

...and they were right!

266 "Julia"
In the old days they were called gold diggers.

Up around here, in modern times when you go pub crawling , 'clubbing', or bar hopping and you get introduced to a new girl with potential, the first question she asks is, "so how long have you worked at the mine?".

See, UMW pay scale with seniority +100k, and Julia is looking for a paycheck. That's why she loves Obama, your paycheck tain't big enough and Julia doesn't have to work hard to get what Obama offers.

267 Don't forget that the campaign site made it clear that when Julia decided to have a baby, it was "Under President Obama", as in "Under President Obama Julia decides to have a child". That's a hands-on presidency.
