Something to think about …. “People Won’t Revolt …. They won’t look up from their Screens …. ‘1984’ …. “!!

PEOPLE WON’T REVOLT

I can’t remember if I read the book ‘1984, written by George Orwell while in school or college. I didn’t watch the movie either back then.

Since this ‘new administration’ in the USA, I picked up both the book and the movie. I can’t believe how the dystopian world portrayed in both is so similar to our current reality.

Orwell had a divination ball, traveled through time or could see into the future.

Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as ‘1984’, is a dystopian novel published in 1949 by English author George Orwell

The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation.

The superstate and its residents are dictated to by a political regime euphemistically named English Socialism, shortened to “Ingsoc” in Newspeak, the government’s invented language.

The superstate is under the control of the privileged elite of the Inner Party, a party and government that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as “thoughtcrime“, which is enforced by the “Thought Police“.

  1. This quote does not appear in the book at all. It does not appear in the movie. I agree that this book is poignant has so much to look at considering our state of the world now, but this seemingly predictive quote is no where to be found. The quote is new, and while not written in 1949 as many meme’s suggest, it does appear in a modern theatre adaptation of Orwell’s novel. The modern theatre adaptation was penned in this decade.
