Discussion about George Orwell's 1984

Great book. Anyone ever really read it?

Yes indeed, 1984 is a great book. Just read it this past summer as a matter of face. Now my school is putting on a play about it. I find the thoughts in that book truly terrifying if only because I can see parts of it developing in modern society. Obviously the prediction wasn’t completely true but I can see parts of it that could be true in the future.

Just for the heck of it though, anyone who lives in the U.S. and read it see any comparison between the thought police and what’s happening these days. Not so much now anymore, but the heated debates in the past? I do and it’s frightening.
