    A must read for anyone...

    ...who hasn't read it yet. :D

    1984, what a book.

    This work of fiction lays out George Orwell's objections to Communism (Scientific Socialism) and Fascism, which he saw as the natural destination in the socio-political evolution of Marxism.
    Orwell's hero, Winston, expriences all the terrors of the vile government of "Big-Brother" first hand just for committing the crime of falling in love and thinking for himself.

    I've read this book three times over and I never get tired of it.
    He (Orwell) does a fantastic job of exposing what a horror a Marxist government would truly be like to live under.
    The all seeing eye is always watching.

    Read it a long time ago, but it still scares me to this day, as Orwell wrote this around the 40s-50s, yet to this day his depiction of communism, or simply overpowered governments at all, is still accurate (look at our modern governments for examples).
    I'm the Juggernaut bitch!
