If, back in the 1950's, you had read, as I did, George Orwell's dystopian novel, "1984," you would have seen virtually every one of the horrors that that work foreshadowed become reality in your lifetime. But if you were born after, say, 1984, you probably accept the hideous new reality as merely, well, reality, which is to say something to be taken for granted. 

In this brilliant presentation, John Carver reveals exactly how extraordinarily prophetic was Orwell's work and how hideous the transformation of the world that he predicted has truly been.

1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell’s prophetic, nightmarish vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. 1984 is still the great modern classic of Negative Utopia.
I recently revisited this book after many years of absence, and while reading along I highlighted many quotes and passages which struck me as relevant to the “social justice” zeitgeist of the late 2010’s. To little surprise, I discovered that what the political left seeks in this day and age is well and truly like the negative utopia described in this classic story.
Here are twenty passages from the book which many of us have to live suffer through everyday in “it’s the current year!”

1. Telescreen

The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely.
Travelers in U.S. airports are tortured with CNN Fake News which they cannot escape. The numerous “telescreens” may not be shut off.



  1. The NFL crashes and burns! Collapse of the celebrity culture now inevitable?

  2. Celebrities will always be with us and they will always have opinions, and media will always let us know it when some airhead celebrity, like Meryl Streep J.K. Rowling, and Madonna embraces the globalist war on the nation state, Christianity, common decency and all the other things we are supposed to hate, but it's true they're getting some push-back now, and even ridicule, which is good to see.

    And of course some celebs have real brains. The late great Mohammed Ali, for example, whose brain was so sadly damaged in the ring. Here with Michael Parkinson
