I was making a list of the way things are going around here and I suddenly realized I’ve seen this before…
- Mass surveillance of citizens
- Small, wealthy ruling party
- No speaking out against the ruler
- “Truth” defined by what the party says
- Prosecution of those who speak against the party/leader
- Figurehead larger-than-life leader
Maybe George Orwell got it wrong – it’s not English Socialism in Oceana, it’s American Socialism.
