12th July 2017 - 1984 - ain't it the truth !!!
Thought for the day: "I've just.started a new job making chess sets ...it's shift work ..I'm on Knights next week.. "
Found a nice little quote running around in Facebook Land - seems it is legitimate and was written by George Orwell back in 1948 - (you can't trust most quotes on the internet these days without double and triple checking) - I thought I would share it ...
The whole quote is :
“We are so busy Facebooking, Snapchatting, Tweeting etc that we are missing what is happening in the world,” he said.
He pointed to a quote from the production he said not only sticks out to him every time, but one that he think will challenge audiences to really think about the world they inhabit and how they chose to be a part of it.
The line is from one of the characters that works for the Government, otherwise known as Big Brother. He says: “The people will not revolt. They will not look up from their screens long enough to notice what’s happening.”
Orwell didn’t have a crystal ball, what he did have was an understanding of the human condition and its weakness. Apathy.
can't say that I disagree with the comments....
