1984

b003jthwku-01-lBook #31: 1984, George Orwell

What would it be like to live in a place where individualism is subservient too the collective state and freedom is falling in line with the will of the governing powers?  In this fictional account of Oceania (a socialized metamorphasis of the English state) Winston searches for truth and freedom in a land where truth is what the government says it is and freedom is doing what the government says to do.  This is a fascinating read.  As socialism seems to be coming back into vogue, we do well to remember the oppression and death that have been replicated in socialist countries throughout the world.  While this is a fictional accounting, it stands as a warning against totalitarianism.  Remember, big brother is watching you!
