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.
