    70 years ago this week, 1984 was first published.

    I heard part of this show in the truck today.
    I found parts of it interesting.

    Personally, I find political correctness is a form of Newspeak.
    I posted a article about how Twitter is making us stupid. I think that social media is also a means to dumb down the populace into mindless consumers.

    I love how Orwell foretold of a ubiquitous telescreen that monitored all behavior.   Now we have smart TVs, Alexa, and smart appliances to monitor all we do.
