''In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it.

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.”

I'm going back to the classics. My first contact with this book took place about 15 years ago, when this item included in the list of additional readings during my education in high school. I remember that it was for me a period of treatment with the assumptions each book as a necessary evil that someone tells me to read, interpret and even ask more, what color pants had character appears once... I remember "1984" as one of the few books made for me then a huge impression and I would have never thought that I would be a fan of dystopian future issues. So I decided to go back to this story and read it again.

“1984 tells of the bleak, oppressed existence of Winston Smith. He lives on a superstate that partake in a perpetual global war, working for 'The Party' under the ever watchful eye of Big Brother and the Thought Police. Smith's colleagues (and in fact the entire population) are fearful of any action perceived as being against The Party in light of the rumours of the extreme punishment received for such heresy. But Smith is unable to tolerate this controlling existence and longs for freedom from it. 1984 is a story narrating his attempt to escape as well as a telling dystopia that draws many alarming similarities to the world we live in.” read more

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU

“''In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make the claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that force of gravity works? or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is uncontrollable - what then?''

"What is is about? It is a dystopian novel by George Orwell about an oligarchical, collectivist society. Life in the Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control. The individual is always subordinated to the state, and it is in part this philosophy which allows the Party to manipulate and control humanity. In the Ministry of Truth (Minitrue, in Newspeak), protagonist Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible"

"If you are already worried about the information that your computer is collecting from you, re-read this one and you will feel much better! Or, perhaps, you will throw your computer in a river. This is the classic text for the will of the individual to maintain his privacy and free will, and how easy it is at the end of it all to just try to blend in and go with the flow to avoid making things even worse by speaking out. “But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finish"
