Nineteen Eighty-Four

After the latest revelations about the NSA snooping, there has been a large jump in sales for Nineteen Eighty-Four** -- the novel written by George Orwell in 1949.

To feed on the popularity of the book, I've heard from a reliable source, that the book 2013 will be published shortly.

2013 is a non-fiction book with details how the USA promotes perpetual war; a decades long surveillance of its population; and media brain washing through 24 hour news programs. Further, 2013 identifies the process through which the citizens' representatives for federal government are dictated by a small portion of the population who own all of the country's assets. Most of the citizens do not question the status quo of living in the USA. The few that would expose government malfeasance are discouraged through trials and long jail sentences.

Note: I made this up. No such book is to be published. At least, I am not aware of any book.

** The first paragraph of the Wikipedia entry for Nineteen Eighty-Four: Nineteen Eighty-Four is a dystopian novel by George Orwell published in 1949. The Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public mind control, dictated by a political system euphemistically named English Socialism (Ingsoc) under the control of a privileged Inner Party elite that persecutes all individualism and independent thinking as thoughtcrimes.


  1. Well, well, well. It's high time you renounced tactfulness, neutrality, and inoffensiveness, and came out with both guns blasting! I hope this is a new policy of yours. (grin)

  2. Maybe the good source is yourself and you're going to write 2013!!
