The Zimmerman case clearly shows the totalitarian aspect of our society; yet many don’t see this

In the middle of a discussion at The Orthosphere about the pros and cons of the Zimmerman prosecution, commenter BGC writes:

As soon as one starts debating the micro-minutiae of media reports of each detail of incidents, political correctness has won. (Which, of course, it has.)

This is a no-brainer.

Things don’t ever get any clearer than this one.

Anyone who can’t see by now what is going on is never going to see what is going on.

This is what it is like to live in a totalitarian society—this is what people have read about in Orwell, Solzhenitsyn, Havel.

If you don’t see it now, you never will.

I quibble with the phrase, “no-brainer.” It’s not a no-brainer at all; to the contrary, it takes brains to see the truth that the commenter is talking about. I also disagree with his statement that if you don’t see that truth now, you never will; for some people the truth will take a while to dawn. At the same time, his statement is correct that that truth has never been more manifest than in this case. The national persecution, and now the prosecution, of George Zimmerman is a further instance of what I have been saying repeatedly for the last two months, starting with the birth control mandate: that the reigning liberalism of our society has shifted into hyper-drive. Among other things, liberalism is now openly tyrannical.
