Big Brother Is Watching You: 1984 by George Orwell - “Big Brother is Watching You" (5). This humble phrase has become the foundation of the conspiracy theorists’ dialog. George Orwell may have written a warning novel in 1984, but there is little possibility that he could have predicted how close to reality his novel would truly develop. In the past 50 years, the world has become a much more dangerous place. Along with this danger has come a call for governments to do more to protect their citizens. This protection has changed over the years, but it has become more and more aggressive in order to protect the population from various so-called "threats"....   [tags: USA patriot act, 9/11, conspiracy theory]

This might all sound very disheartening but is in fact tame compared to the literacy works and ideas conjured up by English author George Orwell in his novel 1984 which depicts fictional life under the cruel and all seeing “Big Broth...   [tags: censorship, freedom of speech, politics, rights]
