Skip to comments.Ted Cruz cites George Orwell’s ’1984,’ warning of all-powerful central government

You know, when Orwell wrote about 1984, the image of an all-powerful central government that monitored the citizens at all times, that had an eye on the sky or an eye on the street video taping all of us, that had information about all of us, personal data that was viewed as science fiction.

Sorry Ted. We’re there. This is 1984.
“Finally someone who gets it”
Yep. I won’t bother to ask what took so long - let’s just run with it.
That’s was his point.
Good old Eric Aurthur Blair (George Orwell). Too bad he did not have a book on the revolt to get out of 1984.
By this time, I’m not imagining when the government will have cameras on the streets, but when we will have implants in our brain stems feeding electrical signals into our pain and pleasure centers in order to condition us to obey their rules.
I nominate Jay Carney for Minister of Truth.
Please use Newspeak...Minitru.
I’m off to the Two Minutes Hate.
He did. It was 1984. The point was that there is no way out of a totalitarian system. Read the book again.
Ted had better be very careful. This man is so brilliant, patriotic and fearless that the left, and perhaps some on the right will do anything to bring him down. I can see it now: Ted goes out for a dinner with a “supporter”, and he is steered into a gay bar, with cameras flashing. Career destroyed. That’s how circumspect patriots must be today. Bob

We think on the same wavelength...: )
Amazing isn’t it!!!!.....It used to be required reading in High Schools...Now it’s almost banned....Hits way too close to home...even for a young kid undergoing his or hers childhood âindoctrinationâ
About 4.36 GHz? Why are you on my frequency? I have a permit to think on this frequency and I was told by my government minders that only they could monitor this band.
You are here.
Has it been banned?
This is all doubleplus ungood!
Someone needs to tell this administration that 1984 was meant to be a warning not a blueprint.
“Good old Eric Aurthur Blair (George Orwell). Too bad he did not have a book on the revolt to get out of 1984.”
Ooh... Was looking to write another book. You gave me a great idea. Now I have to read 1984 again as well as Animal Farm and The Jungle.
