What happens when the state gets too much power.

~ George Orwell

Orwell’s novel 1984 becomes more relevant every year.

  • The technology to monitor every utterance, movement, keystroke used routinely to spy on everyone.
  • Articles disappear, are edited and censored, are rewritten without record of changes.
  • Those who resist, such as Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden are not just jailed, they are tortured in state-of-the-art ways.
  • The government devises a specialised language for lying to people.
  • Vilification of leaders of other countries to build group spirit.
  • The government teaches children to spy on and betray their parents.
  • We have even gone a little further, monitoring people’s thoughts so they cannot hide anything.
  • But by far the most important, the people meekly submit.
