Are we nearing the dystopia of Orwell's 1984? Example: cameras almost everywhere; Snowden, the movie? in The_Think_Tank

Agree, mostly. It's the proverbial frog in a slowly heated pan. He doesn't jump out b/c it's a slow burn. Add to that bells, whistles and entertainment gadget distractions ...and now we are in a place where we knowingly & unknowingly give our private lives away.

History:
The "policing" of verbal statements/behavior was actually a reality for many marginalized ppl in this country in the form of Jim Crow laws, internment camps, etc.
Now:
Compared to that, the pendulum has swung in the other direction...in favor of 1st amendment & expanded civil rights.
Caveat:
The internet/social media has made disseminating the "products" of indiv. 1st amendment rights very easy. It also has made crushing those that exercise that right very easy, & the monitoring people (both online & off) in general is easier.

So we're not 1984, yet. But it's a good discussion to have about the similarities & differences before it's more of a reality than sci fi fantasy.

Disclaimer: I've read multiple summaries /plot synopsises of the book but have not read it cover to cover.

Supposedly, The messages are not all left leaning ..but vary on the spectrum depending on the creater's or buyer's (of the time/program) wishes.
I don't think so ...& i really hope not.

Lol, we've sent ppl to the moon, put robots on Mars, use robots for surgery, cloned sheep, just found out we've grown human brain organoids in Petri dishes and are implanting them in mice, have government organizations devoted solely to knowing everything about everything on the net about it's citizens...oh & Hollywood can digitize a complete character on screen ...

So what's a little digital video manipulation to add diamond shaped pupils? Or the teeth from an DC comic villain?
Weird? Absolutely!
Dangerous? extremely, and very scary that it's getting harder to discern real from fake...

Real lizard people? Nope

Great video examples though
