Does Poll Ask If We're Ready For Orwells' 1984?

Post by Jim Dixon »

THIS IS NOT A SURVEY. It is a copy of questions asked in a survey posed to fellow Canadians.

From a panelist on a survey group at Maru Voice, "Canada's leading online market research panel". Panelists are not told who commissioned the survey. I post this for discussion and education only. It is something the State of New York Senate has been also pushing through as well. There was no mention by Maru regarding sharing the questions.

I missed one special capture. The rest below are a transcript of the survey. Sources at bottom of page. I have original screen caps and anyone is free to contact Maru Voice through their web site.

Reminds me of 1984 with the "Telescreen" that everyone had in their homes so that Big Brother could watch them. :D

ADDENDUM::: Re: Does Poll Ask If We're Ready For Orwells' 19

Post by Jim Dixon »

The poll starts out with some very dramatic questions suggesting we be prepared for a Orwellian 2021 upgraded from 1984.

The Poll then asks questions about political parties, then about two Party leaders.

Having gone all the way through the poll several times, I felt that near the end, I was pretty convinced two party's were being targeted via Dark Pattern style of forcing opinions. That is, get people riled up, put the 2 top opposition leaders in, and people go way with a bad taste in the mouth for both Opposition leaders.

Is this a deception Poll? Make people angry, then give them someone to be angry about. Similar in style to subliminal messaging.

It is interesting that the Poll was posted during high infections, high mortality, failed vaccination delivery, government budget planning, financially stressed businesses and employment and due to the many gag orders and the inability of Canadians to stand up to oppose such heavy-handed laws suggested in the Poll.

You decide if this Poll is supposed to gauge public opinion, or is it using this tumultuous time in our history as a reason to invoke drastic measures, and prelude to set us up for Bigger Brother raising 1984 to 2021. Or, is it simple Party Shaming?

Is there a point to this link? Can you shorten up 90 minutes into what you're trying to say? Erm doesn't say much except "Erm".
Thanks

They are not called 'Telescreens' any more, they are called Smart TV. Smart enough they can monitor people's faces during commercials and if we get bored, they provided a different on next time.

Sorry I'm late, but - I blame a glitch in the matrix. I blame everything on that now - can't prove I'm wrong ;)

Yes there are some models that have cameras but they are not the norm.
