1984.

leave a comment »

Just came across this video. It’s George Orwell’s 1984 written by Eric Arthur Blair (real-name) in late 1940’s. It paints a bleak picture of a post nuclear conflict world divided into 3 power blocks, all of which are equally repressive of the citizenry. Way back then in 1984, Orwell was denounced as a “false prophet”  and his book as nonsense. Take a look at it now and see if his ever watchful “big brother” (the bbc (in this instance )    is big brother) is as far-fetched as it them seemed.

Noticed these things “popping up” for a while, links to all sorts but of late they seem to be putting out stuff. Scurrilous stuff indeed, heard this type of material many years ago guess I know where it is coming from now.  Also noticed a reaction to some of the video’s, they didn’t go down well with a certain quarter despite the fact that they been up for years. Its the long and the short of it . I find it amusing that stuff on this blog seems to get such a reaction. I am beginning to think the stats are way off.
