The Disturbing truth to 1984

While re reading the book “1984” I came across a terrifying parallel between their world and ours. For those of you who are not familiar with the book or movie, the nation Oceania is in a state of perpetual warfare with the other two superstates on Earth. But this isn’t a war that is to be won, it is an orchestrated conflict whose sole purpose is to control the masses.

Now with that said, take a moment and reflect on our perpetual conflict that simply cannot be won, the “War on Terrorism.” Very freighting stuff, I think Orwell was on to something.

  1. Sometimes the writing classed as fiction holds the most truth, more than the real stuff. The thing is Orwell wrote of a future he saw and of the world he lived in. I think only now with info warriors and the net have we seen the extent of lies and half truths by many governments – theres an information war now and thats why they are so desperate to clamp down on the net. Wont happen in the West – too many users for too long – wouldnt accept it.
