“Terrax, the Crystal Planet, is an exacting world. A place where human physical contact is impossible and stepping outside is virtual suicide. The atmosphere is a hurricane of Coriolis winds and deadly scattershowers, composed of toxic metals formed into whip-like threads kilometers long. Immense Ocean Domes cover over the toxic sludge where the oceans used to be, and the surface of Terrax is covered in crystalline structures, called the Hives, where only the upper crust lives. No one can survive the raw elements; all must reside inside buildings, vicariously living through virtual reality programming. To believe the tales of “Olde Earth”, a place where clean water flowed from the sky, where the outdoor air was breathable and edible food grew out of the ground? These were no more than nestling’s stories, ancient mythology from a distant Time. Until the Rips in Time occurred……”

Dystopian Doublethink

George Orwell’s classic book “1984,” begins with the line “”It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen”. The novel is about a dystopian future where critical thought is suppressed under a totalitarian regime. (Beginning to sound familiar?)

 

 

The book popularized the adjective Orwellian, which describes official deception, secret surveillance, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian state.

 

 

Many of the terms and concepts of the book, such as Big Brother, doublethink, and memory hole, have entered into common use since its publication in 1949.

 

The current administration practices doublethink, which means: the ability to hold two completely contradictory thoughts simultaneously while believing both to be true.

Party Like a President

On my last birthday, my brother gave me a book about the US President’s drinking, gambling and carousing habits through the years. In it I found a recipe for syllabub, an olde English dessert, which was popular during James Monroe’s presidency.

Here’s the recipe: 2/3 c. white wine, 1/3 c. sherry, 2 T. grated lemon zest, ¼ c. lemon juice, 2/3 c. sugar, 2 c. heavy cream, fresh mint sprigs and berries. Mix the wine, sherry, lemon zest and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir in the sugar until dissolved.

 

 

In a separate bowl, whip the cream until the mixture forms into medium-size stiff peaks. Then, combine and stir with the wine mixture. Scoop the mixture into wineglasses. Cover the glasses and chill in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. When ready to serve, top with the mint and berries.
