I think society is taking more of a Aldous Huxley direction.When George Orwell wrote 1984, it wasn't meant to be an instruction manual. The book is horribly depressing when you read it today.
The Ministry of Truth? Big Brother? I guess sooner or later they will turn their attention to Stone Mountain.
The motto from 1984:
Ignorance is strength.
Freedom in slavery.
War is peace.
