Why Antis shouldn’t use the term 2+2=5 to prove that Larries logic is illogical.

Now, I’m going to try and be civil here as this has very little to do with fandom drama and more to do with the fact that every time I see it a piece of my literary loving soul dies. If you are an anti and think our logic is illogical then cool, that’s your opinion but if you are using this term to prove it you clearly haven’t seen it in its original context. 

It comes from George Orwell’s novel 1984 which in short is a novel all about questioning authority, media and the government as well as corruption. The term itself is almost meant in a manner to mean, ‘question everything’. The original quote reads as such…

‘In the end, the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy.’

2+2=5 is a kind of mantra throughout the novel as a symbol of questioning authority and seeking freedom from external forces such as media and the government. Another quote in relation to this is that,

‘Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four.’

I am going to get into spoiler territory here but at the ending of the novel the protagonist is captured and taken to the ministry of love (a government facility which if portrayed fairly nicely within the eyes of the media but is where people normally go to be tortured and killed for thought crimes such as speaking against government norms). There he is tortured until he is brainwashed with adoration for ‘big brother’, the dictator of this futuristic society and forced to admit that 2+2=5 before being marched off to his death as a happy and mindless slave under his government. 

Now as a little overview I’m going to simplify the arguments of Larries and Antis greatly just to prove a point. 

Anits= What the media says and portrays is all there is, it’s not that deep. Larries= Question everything, analyse everything. 

When an anti uses 2+2=5 you are actually kind of helping the larries point when placed into context. So if that’s not what you want to do then maybe think of a better catchphrase as you are literally quoting a novel that focuses on psychological manipulation of the masses through physical manipulation of the media.

i've wondered this but do any of the mods have bsd ocs based off their favorite authors and works :0

Emi: George Orwell. Ability: 1984. A somewhat timid man who has trust issues. Jack London is probably his only friend… Sometimes you can catch Orwell muttering to himself: Under the spreading chestnut tree, I sold you and you sold me. His ability, in short, allows him to find people.

Liz: Jack London. Ability: Memories of the Wild (taken from White Fang), which allows him to control/possess the minds of animals (people count too, but it’s more difficult and he’d rather not). He raises wolfdogs (and one shiba), dabbles in a bunch of things, and probably tries to make Orwell go Pokemon-hunting hiking with him.

Brynna: Mary Shelley.  Ability: The Modern Prometheus (alternate title for Frankenstein).  She straight-up raises the dead.  Only drawback is that they lose all their memories of being alive and have major identity crises upon realizing they are reanimated corpses.  Boss ass bitch who hates her husband’s friends but will put up with them if she really has to.  Good Friends with Emma Orczy.

Irass: Raicho Hiratsuka. Ability: In the Beginning, Woman was the Sun. Gathers energy from her own body and releases it in an explosive manner. This can range from gathering energy just around her hands, to around her whole body. If she uses it for a long period of time, she passes out. Never really happy with anything unless it’s perfect. An independent woman who don’t need no man.

Nicole: Dante Alighieri. Ability: Divine Comedy. Transports people into their own personal pit of hell. I honestly believe he could become like the final boss or something. There is just so much potential.

Del Martin (May 5, 1921 - August 27, 2008) and Phyllis Lyon (b. November 10, 1924), San Francisco, California, 1984. Photo © JEB (Joan E. Biren). Del Martin, who died eight years ago today, and Phyllis Lyon were lifelong partners and the parents of America’s lesbian rights movement. In 1955, Lyon and Martin founded the Daughters of Bilitis (DOB), the first American organization dedicated to the social, political, and legal equality of lesbians, and both served as editor of The Ladder, the DOB’s magazine. In 1967, Lyon and Martin joined the National Organization for Women (NOW), and Martin was the first open lesbian elected to a leadership position in the organization; the couple worked to combat homophobia in NOW and helped secure the passage of a 1971 resolution declaring lesbian issues to be feminist issues. In 1989, the pair joined Old Lesbians Organizing for Change, and both were named to the 1995 White House Conference on Aging. The couple later had the distinction of being the first same-sex couple to marry in San Francisco on two separate occasions. Lyon and Martin first married on February 12, 2004, after then-Mayor Gavin Newsom ordered the City Clerk to provide marriage licenses to same-sex couples; that marriage, along with approximately four thousand others, was voided by the California Supreme Court in August 2004. On June 16, 2008, the couple again became the first to wed in San Francisco after the state Supreme Court’s decision in In re Marriage Cases brought marriage equality briefly to California (same-sex marriage was suspended between November 2008 and June 2013, due to Proposition 8). Del Martin died on August 27, 2008; she was eighty-seven. #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #QueerHistoryMatters #HavePrideInHistory #DelMartin (at San Francisco, California)

Do u think that klance will ever become canon for the show? Because even thought I disagree strongly, many people believe in not having any homosexual relationships in "kid" shows :(

A question to make me think!! Let’s see, I personally hope it will happen.

However, I know what you mean :/ honestly, they might not have it happen and I don’t care if anyone says “oh but the writers of Korrasami etc etc.” because I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that only one writer(?) is working on this and not the whole team that made it happen? I can’t remember but I know I read that somewhere,,

I also read someone’s theory (I guess we could call it this?) about something similar to this question and it said something similar to this: Voltron is a reboot of the original 1984 show so there could be some older people watching this and even though people born later (like 2000+) are more accepting of homosexuality, not many older people do.

I’m basing everything I said on someone else words and I can’t remember who it was (I think it was @/klanced but I’m not 100% sure?) conclusion: I want it to happen with my soul and life but I’m very skeptical.

From Wikipedia:

As an undergraduate, Brooks frequently contributed reviews and satirical pieces to campus publications. In his senior year, he wrote a spoof of the life-style of wealthy conservative William F. Buckley Jr., who was scheduled to speak at the university: “In the afternoons he is in the habit of going into crowded rooms and making everybody else feel inferior. The evenings are reserved for extended bouts of name-dropping.” To his piece, Brooks appended the note: “Some would say I’m envious of Mr. Buckley. But if truth be known, I just want a job and have a peculiar way of asking. So how about it, Billy? Can you spare a dime?” When Buckley arrived to give his talk, he asked whether Brooks was in the lecture audience and offered to give him a job [ … ]

In 1984, mindful of the offer he had previously received from William F. Buckley, Brooks applied and was accepted as an intern on Buckley’s National Review.

Happy birthday Steven Curnow.
Born August 28, 1984
14 years old in 1999.

He dreamed of being a Navy top gun pilot. He was very close with his mom Susan and father Robert.
He loved soccer and worked part time as a referee and his dad coached the soccer team (Blue Devils of the Colorado Rush) he played on. Steve liked the color green, because it was the color of the field. His favorite classes were Spanish, technology, and gym because he got to play sports.

Remembered as a huge fan, he watched the Star Wars movies so many times he could recite the dialogue along with the actors. Science fiction fans nationwide put together a go-to-Star-Wars memorial day in his honor when Star Wars I: the Phantom Menace premiered in theaters May 19th, 1999. He had been anxiously awaiting its release.

Steve was hiding under one of the small computer tables in the library, near surviving victim Kacey Ruegsegger, when the shooting began. Eric Harris shot Steve in neck with a sawed-off shotgun. Steve died in the library, the youngest victim of the Columbine massacre.
