George Orwell's 1984

December 31, 2009 - "George Orwell's 1984" Get out the popcorn kiddies, its time for a movie. This movie is about the George Orwell novel entitled 1984. Nineteen Eighty-Four was originally published in 1949 as a dystopian novel about the totalitarian regime of the Party, an oligarchic collectivist society where life in the Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, public mind control, and the voiding of citizens' rights. In the Ministry of Truth (Mini-true), protagonist Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible for perpetuating the Party's propaganda by revising historical records to render the Party omniscient and always correct, yet his meager existence disillusions him into rebellion against Big Brother, which leads to his arrest, torture, and conversion. Sure does sound similar to what we are heading to today under our current regime. Click here
