1984

George Orwell’s 1984. It’s the book you have to read in order to understand all of our cultural references to it!
Some Quotes:
Big brother is watching you.

Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime is death.

War is Peace

Freedom is Slavery

Ignorance is Strength

The commercial that launched the first Apple computer was stylized after the theme of everyone being the same, following the “party” line like brain dead zombies. Folks in 1984 are all dressed the same, expected to think the same and be aware that Big Brother is always watching from the ever present TV. The government tells you what to do and what to think. Control is ever present.
