So... What? WHY?! I don't understand the point of this. If this is really just meme's gone wild... I'm scared. Really and truly. I think that's why I have this thing in the back of my mind that there is something more to this disease than we've been told. Because the alternate is so much more horrible.


It's commies unfortunately. Bret Weinstein (the liberal professor who was hunted to kill by commies) talks about this on his podcast.

It comes down to commies (progressives) want to purge the world of all things that are hard to accomplish such as math and science because they were invented or perfected by white people.

Bret talks about how they believe 2+2=5, and if you think it equals 4 you are a racist.

2+2=5 came from George Orwell's book "1984".

Quote:
The phrase "two plus two equals five" (2 + 2 = 5) is used in the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), by George Orwell, as a dogmatic statement of Ingsoc (English Socialism) philosophy, like the slogan "War is Peace", which the Party expects the citizens of Oceania to believe is true. In writing his secret diary in the year 1984, the protagonist Winston Smith ponders if the Inner Party might declare that "two plus two equals five" is a fact. Smith further ponders whether or not belief in such a consensus reality makes the lie true.

Concerning the falsity of the phrase, in Room 101, the interrogator O'Brien tells the thought criminal Smith that control over physical reality is unimportant to the Party, provided the citizens of Oceania subordinate their real-world perceptions to the political will of the Party; and that, by way of doublethink: "Sometimes, Winston. [Sometimes it is four fingers.] Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once".
