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?
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!
