1984 by datonel 1984 by datonel
I can't remember who said this, but the quote stuck in my head and eventually burrowed out as a desktop wallpaper.

In a part of "1984", it's said that the governement took the proles quite also with stupid and degenerative tv programs.
I don't know well how it's in the rest of the World, but exactly it's what's happening in Italy from 20 years ago.

Not only in Italy but in Hungary as well. Just like everywhere else, I suppose. I can agree with the quote and as far as I remember the book... it feels like we're heading that direction. And we shouldn't. Maybe that's why that those ones who sees the world as it is are sad and disappointed in life/humanity. :-/ But I really hope I'm only too pessimist and not right.
Have a nice day you all, through. :)

I think this is the first time I've ever read that quote. Frighteningly poignant. I love it!

I would bet Obama never read the novel.

Britain now has the most under surveillance population in the word. Crime has increased dramatically whilst convictions has lowered since the rise of CCTV. However during the recent protests CCTV was used to extensively to control and contain protesters against the government. It's not about our safety its about spying on us!
