Signet D1640 Nineteen Eighty Four FAIR
By George Orwell
It didn't happen in 1984, but the danger of Orwell's ultra-statist society coming to pass is still real; in fact, even as I write this in 2008, there is one major political party here in the U.S. which seems absolutely determined to make this nightmare happen.
Addendum 2015: Well, I was right. Except now it looks like BOTH parties want to make it come to pass!
Big Brother Watches YOU!
If it does, which of these will you be in the new reality?
Proletarian -- Considered inferior and kept in total ignorance, you'll be fed lies from the Ministry of Truth, eliminated upon any sign of intelligence or ability.
Police Guard -- Chosen for lack of intelligence but superior brawn, you'll be suspicious of everyone and be ready to give your life for Big Brother (or maybe Big Sister?), the leader you've never even seen!
Party Member: Male -- Faceless, mindless, a flesh-and-blood robot with a push-button brain, you're denied love by law, taught hate by the flick of a switch!
Party Member: Female -- A member of the Anti-Sex League from birth, your duty will be to smother all human emotion, and your children might not be your husband's!
Unbelievable? Read it, and then answer that question yourself.
