George Orwell’s fictionalized world where Big Brother reigns supreme is no longer a figment of the imagination, but a prophetic vision of present-day threats. Brent Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center, explains how and why Big Tech is making Orwell’s 1984 a 21st century reality.

Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984, was published 64 years ago. For Americans living under Obama, this prophetic novel is more relevant than ever.
1984 imagines a country called Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain) a province of a super state called Oceania. The country is under the control of a central party, guided by a quasi-divine leader, Big Brother. The government justifies their oppressive rule in the name of the collective good. All individualism is crushed, and those who think independently are guilty of Thoughtcrimes.
Orwell’s understood that those who control language control culture. Distort the meaning of words and you warp the mind into Doublethink. Ultimately, thought and behavior are colonized by the bureaucratic state.
The destructive and immoral policies of the radical left are enforced on American culture through a systematic abuse of language.
George Orwell understood that those who control language control culture. In his brilliant novel about the nightmare of modern totalitarian regimes, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Newspeak is the language of Big Brother and its vast propaganda machine through which citizen are turned into slaves:
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
When lies become truth, civil society is exterminated.
The radical left in America—Barack Hussein Obama’s Democrat party—takes its cues from the soulless, fascist regime of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.
