i just finished 1984, and dammit, i hate it.

i hate it the same way a person hates a movie because the ending did not meet his expectations.

it’s scary to even just think that we’re heading in that direction, but i think it’s safe to say that any perceivable change towards a 1984 society will not happen while i am still alive. as far as i can see, people still value individual thought, so much so that intellectual property rights are a very, very big deal. no collectivism just yet.

i wonder if people who have read this novel have been moved to shape society into something different from the novel’s version.

but yes, i still believe george orwell is a genius.
