Orwell's 1984

When I was a boy I used to look forward to living in the future, flying cars and video screens everywhere. I never expected that I would be longing for the 'good old days' where privacy was something everybody had and nobody was out to invade it. Now your OS, fridge, TV, fucking headphones, etc are all taking their slice and many idiots think it is fine and even defend the practice. I read 1984 and theought it was good but chilling book that would never come true. How wrong was I...
