Experience JoyCamp and Escape the Orwellian Brave New World Order (Interview & Movie)


History… Interview and a Movie: Experience JoyCamp and Escape the Orwellian Brave New World

Tonight, on History… So it Doesn’t Repeat: We feature an interview and a movie with the comedy phenomenon known as JoyCamp, sharing their creative intellect and conscious comedy with all who could use a few laughs. We’ll discover what makes truth so funny, and how to conquer our own fears in the process.

JoyCamp is a term coined by George Orwell in his book 1984, The further life of a “comrade” continues under the watchful eyes of the Party. Everything people do is recorded by the telescreens. Even in their homes people have telescreens. Each unorthodox action is then punished by “joycamps” (Newspeak word for forced labour camps”). In the 21st century, JoyCamp is the antithesis of tyranny of the mind, it’s a liberation from dogma and an inspiration for creativity in life.

    I found this to be enjoyable, there’s a lot of new information for me. I completely get Joy Camp now. I am also going to look into more Tragedy and Hope.

    Just one thing of complete importance:

    Dude completely deserved getting wacked by the drone… Socks with sandals is a sin.

      Tragedy and Hope is a great site, I recommend the eponymously titled book as well (although it is a grinding 1400 pages). Check out the website’s founder Richard Grove’s back story as a corporate whistle-blower. It’s really interesting.
