The Candid Camera video below starkly demonstrates how the “new normal” is not normal at all. “The new normal” is Orwellian newspeak and doublethink for what is really abnormal behavior. Thus, under the modern-day newspeak and doublethink people are being propagandized into accepting abnormal conduct as “the new normal.”
Remember when things at least appeared normal? By normal, I mean a general recognition that each person was created in God’s image with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and property. It was not really normal for those who were informed because the governments of the world had largely eroded the God-given rights of their citizens. But for most people, it at least appeared that way. But now, the abnormality of our subjugation is stark and more exposed than ever before. The “new normal” reveals a world full of sheep who, on command, obey their masters. Now it has come into full bloom where people act like circus animals doing tricks. “Wear the mask or you will be punished!” And the vast majority obey and sheepishly put on ridiculous masks, which are unsafe and ineffective.
Welcome to the Orwellian “new normal,” which is not normal at all. But under Orwell’s doublethink and newspeak what was slavery is now freedom and what was ignorance is now strength, and what was abnormal is now “the new normal.”
Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry explains that “normal was a crisis; normal wasn’t working.” And so we must stop being normal and become abnormal (i.e., like herd animals with no personal identity) and wear masks. Kerry explains that “we must not think of it in terms of pushing a button and going back to the way things were. We’re a long way off from being able to go back to any kind of normal.”
Under this Orwellian newspeak and doublethink, what is clearly abnormal is now “the new normal.” What is clearly ignorance is now strength, what is clearly slavery is now freedom, and we will soon find out that what is clearly war will be called as peace. And do not be lulled, war is right around the corner, but it will be sold as peace.
True freedom is found in Jesus Christ. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36. We are to use our freedom to serve and help one another. “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13.
It is knowledge of true freedom that a Christian has that makes him a unique target of autocrats. One who is set free from sin by Jesus Christ has the firm belief in Jesus, who has endowed him with the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property. Such a one will never submit to tyranny. That truth scares the bejeebers out of despots.

Yes indeed, only the gospel of Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal normal while this fallen world is the devils delusion to punish the wicked who have not been gifted faith to believe on Christ and saved by His finished work on the cursed tree at Calvary through substitutional atonement.
