So we all hear about 1984 and it's projection but I am asking myself, and you all. Was this a warning? or a blueprint? Every day we are getting closer and closer to what I recall it was getting to. Problem is I read it in high school as well as "Breakfast of Champions" in the same week and I get them mixed up. Has anyone read 1984 lately?? Was it a warning or did it set a direction. Written in 1949 it was at the dawn of computers. Did Orwell expect computers to evolve to be a watcher of humans? Today it is easily possible to monitor all of us. In fact they are doing this. Going to grab a copy of 1984 today. See what to expect next.
