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.
