George Orwell turns over in his grave. (Disassociated Press)

Yup, Eric Arthur Blair would be turning over in his grave if he gets news updates in his grave this day. He wasn't so far off the mark in terms of "1984" considering he wrote it more than 50 years ago. Perhaps the publishers will just change the title and people could live the book.

First there was the Dixie Chicks incident. So she exercised her so-called freedom of speech. Look where it got them. And Michael Moore. Bush was nearly quoted as saying that they got what they deserved.

Next, Big Brother is coming true.
The Pentagon has developed a surveillance system beyond your wildest dreams. Here's how it's described - "It would identify people at great distances by the irises of their eyes, the grooves in their face or even their gait. It would look for suspicious patterns in video footage of people's movements."

Some theorise that Google is one of the biggest weapons in the Big Brother theory!

What do you think ?

Quote for the day -

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they aren't watching you.
