I was re-reading the classic 1984 by George Orwell and I had a moment of pause. No need to review what 1984 is about, take a look here to get a quick summary, but take a moment and look at some obvious similarities. There is this “Big Brother” and the three slogans from the Ministry of Truth were:
- War is peace
- Freedom is slavery
- Ignorance is strength
- War on terrorism
- The Patriot Act
- Lack of Intelligence gathering by our agencies (where are those darn Weapons of Mass Destruction)
I really do not have the time to go into this but it was an interesting revelation none the less.
