Where did you read that at?? I’ve thought that for literally 4 years now!! Goodness, I’m glad SOMEONE agrees with me!!:’D 1984 seems to me to be the kind of thing that happens when a totalitarian regime comes about, while BNW seems to be what is happening, in a distilled version, in western nations like our own where we’re supposed to be ‘free’.
Oh lawd, now I’m going to be rehashing old conspiracy theories all night!! XD
