I took sometime out of my reading list to reread this Orwell’s classic. It gives you quite a bit to think about these days. You can honestly draw several parallels with today’s world and the world that Orwell described. I think in some ways technology helps us speed towards the group think mentality described in the book, I mean just watch people play on their phones in a restaurant. It makes you wonder if Facebook, Google, or some other big tech doesn’t have something in mind that changes facts/narratives to their preferred story.
