Here's an article about the Daily Mail newspaper, it over-exaggerates a fair bit, but you get the point...
I wouldn't say everything in the Daily Mail is designed to make people angry over stuff that simply isn't true, but a lot of it is.

Well reporting neighbors who keep their curtains closed would involve millions of people here in Texas. We do it just to keep the interiors cooler, especially when temperatures range from 80-110 degrees at certain times of the year, and depending upon the location within the state.

You could actually have added the movie "Equilibrium" to your list. The kid betrays his dad to the .gov for the crime of emotion.

You're right it's not like 1984. In many respects it's much worse.
ALL governments become corrupt.
ALL institutions become corrupt.
A fascist police state is nearer than you think.
They're even destroying UK pensions right now so we'll barely be able to afford food.
Where there's power, you always get people attracted to that power to further their own needs. All governments have corruption going on at some point.
The police are becoming more open and accountable for their actions. The local Bobby from years ago could vertually do what ever he wanted. if he didn't like you, you were screwed.
Pensions are only in the state they are in beacuse we have an aging population.

Wow, that's scary.
Anybody remember the weird British 60's television series The Prisoner? I think it may get to the point where they finally install some kind of camera/spying device inside your home and make it mandatory.
Absurd is the word.
