George Orwell’s “1984” Meets the Parti Québécois Manifesto of 1972

In an independent, that is a “Communist” Quebec, you will be socialized from birth to grave. You will live the paradise enforced upon Winston Smith in Orwell’s famous portrait of British Socialism (IngSoc) in “1984“. In Quebec, it may be called “QSoc“. Can you tell the difference between words from Orwell’s 1984 and words from the 1972 Communist manifesto of the Parti Québécois?

... the television apparatus automatically incorporated into housing and considered as a public service in the same manner as the aqueduct and the sewer ...

   “… the television apparatus automatically incorporated into housing
          and considered as a public service in the same manner as
                                         the aqueduct and the sewer …”

EN FRANÇAIS : … l’appareil de télévision automatiquement incorporé
au logement et considéré comme un service public au même titre
que l’aqueduc et l’égoût

 
(At least they put the TV in the right category with the “sewer”.) Our ubiquitous home brain-washing machine — for which we now pay and therefore must finance our own indoctrination — will be FREE as a State service of the Communist Parti Québécois! Let’s vote! Can’t wait for the next referendum! (Pssst! I don’t have a TV. Yeeks! I’m an enemy of the Party!) It’s off to Re-education Camp (I mean, the Gulag) for me!

Read my exclusive English translation of “L’Entreprise” “The Company”, pages 67-73 from the 1972 Parti Québécois manifesto, now on the Library tab.

As usual, footnotes are mine; underscores are points for my research; and silver-highlighted text is subject to revision.

A complete scan of the French original of the 1972 manifesto of the Parti Québécois entitled Quand nous serons vraiment chez nous (When we are truly at home) is online to read. Unfortunately, Calaméo no longer allows free downloads.
