Last night I watched George Orwell’s 1984 come to life on my computer screen. I have never read the book but in the interest of time and entertainment I decided to watch the movie.
The movie demonstrates the powerful psychology behind collectivist thought and the nonexistent big brother who controls the minds of the proletariat. In this lifeless world, people become afraid to step outside of their daily routine in fear of embarrassment, torture, and death. No one is allowed to think or feel, the proles exists solely to work for the omnipotent and omnipresent government. If you haven’t yet seen this grim warning against future totalitarianism, I strongly suggest you watch it.
