by George Orwell
General / Favorable Reviews
Big Brother is watching you - read this
book and see how!
George Orwell's classic was incredibly visionary. It is hardly fathomable that this book was written in 1948. Things that we take for granted today - cameras everywhere we go, phones being tapped, bodies being scanned for weapons remotely - all of these things were described in graphic detail in Orwell's book.
Now that we have the Internet and people spying on other people w/
webcams and people purposely setting up their own webcams to let others
"anonymously" watch them, you can see how this culture can develop into
the Orwellian future described in "1984."
