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.

I recommend making one of these (or something else like it) about orwell's other novel: Animal farm.

I'm sorry, I know this is completely irrelevant and separate from what you were going for with this, but seeing this the only thing I can think of is Arnim Zola from Captain America 2.

Indeed it was not. In these past 14 years, I fear the GOP has become Orwell's INGSOC Party, where truth with them is inconsistent, they change positions on the issues and geopolitical allies and enemies. FOX NEWS is their Ministry of Truth. They call for ceaseless war. The people are manipulated by them into voting  against their interests. They seem to have no other objective than the pursuit of power. It's frightening!

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. :)

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!

When you look at it- really look at it, it seems that 1984 was more of a book of eerily accurate prophecies than anything else... Damn, I'm depressed!
