1984 is one of the best books I've ever read; and its really very prophetic. I think you could have a camera in the TV; it wouldn't be hard. Most
people have satellites, so it could just feed right back to whoever wants the information.
I don't live in Britain, and I'm glad, because having a camera watch my every move would put me in a world of pissed off I've never been before.
Jeez, watching you go to the grocery store, the mall, at every stop light, that'd annoy the hell out of me. I'm really suprised thought, that it
isn't used here more (Texas). I see they are adding more lights to the intersections to give tickets to those who run the red lights and all, but I
know that's a lie; it's really to just get us use to the idea of being watched. Once that's done, those cameras will be everywhere. I allready
had to shoot out a street light that was annoying me so I wonder what the fine or penalty is for blowing out the camera.
I just recently read 1984 for the first time this summer, I know, I'm slow to get around to it, but business school takes up most of my reading time,
but, it's one of the best books I've ever read. I say that because of how much of the events in it I see actually coming real. We allready have
our ministry of love, its down in Guantonimo and all the other places that we never hear about. All the politicians use a "Newspeak" form of
talking, except for Bush, sometimes I'm not sure what he's saying. Everything in that book I see as coming true and it's one of my worst
nightmares. If marshal law was declared tomorrow, you'd see me in one of those FEMA camps or some place like that. That would be my "ministry of
love". Assuming I wasn't shot in the back of the head for refusing to go, I'd then be tortured and probably released after I was deemed fit for
society, then eventually they'd take me back and finally put an end to what is known as me. I recently read Animal Farm too; lets not forget that
that book also is like 1984 just not so prophetic in its view. How many times in the past few years have you been told that the government was doing
something for your good?
