A Comedy of Errors
(2000)

RESPONSE TO ABOVE ARTICLE:

'THE WRITER of a new play containing the N-word in its title has been attacked for ignoring pain and history associated with the word'. What 'pain'? What 'history'?

Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past. George Orwell (1903–1950), British author. Nineteen Eighty-Four, part one, chapter three (1949), Ingsoc party slogan.

'African-American comedian Reginald D Hunter was lambasted by Lee Jasper, senior race advisor to the London Mayor Ken Livingstone, who attacked the word for contributing holding the black Disapora back (Sic)'. How can a word hold anyone back, unless they let it?

'The word is imbued with so much pain and anger that has not been resolved'. Get over it!

'It's past properly understood, and there are people who are not strong enough to be able to handle it'. There will always be weak people. Does this mean that we, the strong, have to be held back by you, the weak, because you refuse to toughen up? Fuck you, loser!

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever. George Orwell (1903–1950), British author. O’Brien to Winston Smith, in Nineteen Eighty-Four, part three, chapter three (1949).

'There are black people across the world who have to live with the consequences of that word (Sic). I find it difficult to conceptualise that the use of this word is somehow an advance for black people worldwide.' This is a deliberate confusion with words that arbitrarily label objects & actions and those objects & actions themselves. It's a pathetic attempt to make whites feel collective guilt, forever, for something that happened before they were born. It is an attempt to make racism the Original Sin of the white race – a blot that can never be removed without a Black say so. Disgustingly hypocritical Black Racism (ie, Doublethink)!

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. George Orwell (1903–1950), British author. Nineteen Eighty-Four, part two, chapter nine (1949), extract from Goldstein’s book.

‘I don’t want that word to have power over me and to stop me from living my life. Hiding the word will not make the world a better place.' This is fine, but attempts to elude the fact that making such a statement proves that 'that word' still does have precisely that effect over him. Otherwise, why make the statement? What happened to Frank TALKER when He was a child, He has now gotten over, so why talk about it now – in full adulthood? Unless, of course, he is specifically asked about it by someone with a sincere interest in Him. The solution here is, therefore, that when it comes up in conversation: Fine; discuss it. When it doesn't, don't push other people's faces into it because that would prove you haven't gotten over it and are, therefore, self disempowered by your own cowardice. Does this mean that the upcoming remake of "The Dam Busters" must call guy Gibson's dog "N****R"? How, exactly, does one pronounce that?

'Producers for the show fear the advertising ban could severely affect ticket sales'. This is Black, Racist wishful thinking since a similar ban had no such effect on 'The Spy Who Shagged Me' some years ago.

The 1990 Trust should spend its scarce resources taking positive actions regarding those they claim to represent, rather than focussing on words that can't be erased from their Newspeak dictionaries any more than they can from the minds of racists. It's a fallacy to believe that banning a word can ban the actions usually associated with it. This is the philosophy of the totalitarians described in Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four": Dumbass Niggers!
