ABOUT THE VIDEO
_
In this video, I talk about 1984, George Orwell, totalitarianism, authoritarians, and truth.

Throughout his novel 1984, Orwell maintains that in order to protect yourself from the authoritarian, you must never abandon the truth. The authoritarian wants absolute power over you, and one of the things they need to achieve this is for you to abandon the truth. How does holding on to the truth protect you from the authoritarian? That’s what I’m interested in exploring, and as always, I’m gonna explore this idea through a dialogue.

When you abandon the truth, you stop being able to learn. And when you stop being able to learn, you become less able to take care of yourself. And when you become less able to take care of yourself, you become more dependent on others. And the authoritarian uses this dependence to gain absolute power over you. But by holding on to the truth, educating yourself, and becoming independent, you become a threat to the authoritarian. You undermine the source of their power, which is dependence, and you become capable of liberating yourself, and others, from their control as well.
