I realized when I looked ahead to the things they're doing now, and planning for the near future, that much of what we call the orwellian future is already in place. But since we were born after these changes were implemented, we dont question it, and that is going to be the way for every generation.
If you want to see what I mean, imagine how people felt when passports were needed to travel to other countries. And school education became compulsory by law. There are far too many rules preventing people from making their own choices in life. The rules they're making now are just further crippling us and forcing us to act exactly how they want.
There will never be a point where big brother will sit back and decide it has done enough, if you think we're all a bunch of crazy doom mongers then just think about that. The changes they are making will never stop, this means that they can only take it further and further. You will find out where your own personal line in the sand will be, when you decide enough is enough.

Nope, we are not living in an Orwellian future.
We are living in an Orwellian present.
Obama could potentially betray us like the pigs did in Animal Farm when they betrayed the animals after the revolution... the book was about how the Soviet Union leaders betrayed the revolution. Obama could very well betray the left. People need to get out of party politics before it's too late... they are entering the age of an Orwellian future. People are saying that their side is right and that Obama can't be wrong or that Republicans can't be wrong and they are denying facts that are contrary to their ideology.
