Why read a fucking book if you can see it unfold right before your eyes.

Yes! Read & memorize those words & pictures in those books, including Fahrenheit 451, before the Fire Brigades rush around to fire bomb your books! Pretend they're not your books, act thick & illiterate so they don't burn you alive too, if they happen to catch you... 'READINGGGGG' which is soon to be a 'Terrorist' Crime! Reading will be FORBIDDEN!

Apple 1984 Commercial

Based on George Orwell's novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four (authored in 1949) the spot provided the allegory of the new Apple Macintosh computer providing an inspirational creative spark that would free individuals from the overbearing control of "Big Brother" - presumably, IBM's Personal computer.

That reminds me...I need to shake the dust off of my copy and read it when I take the kids to the pool today. George Orwell had to have been a time traveler, or at the very least in the inner circle of the elite's plans, to know this was coming down in the near future. No one then (when the book was written) could even imagine what we live under today...or even thought it possible beyond the realms of science fiction.

How ironic that computers make it possible for Big Brother to surveil us on such a grand scale. Without computers there WOULD be no "1984" to the extent we see it today! Thanks "Apple".

You got it. Few people know that Orwell was a member of the Fabian Society (as was Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World) and so had intimate knowledge of the elite's plans for humanity, and wrote about them.
