    I like it but it’s KINDA been done now to death. No era is like an old era, it’s a new era, good or bad.

  2. Happy Molloy

    It’s more Huxley than Orwell really –

    “What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxleyfeared we would become a trivial culture.”

    Instead of arguing about whther it’s Orwell or Huxley, there are elements of both men’s writing that exist in the current political climate. It is not an either/or situation. The place really stinks though. I will say this however, if Trump really was Hitler-esque right now, there would be no pictures of smug smiling designers holding up mock swastikas while smiling. That guy woulda been real dead, real fast.

      1. On The Buses

        I was referring more to the internment/disciplining or killing of everyday subversive citizens, not members of the intelligence community. They live by the sword them lads.
