Orwell was so right about everything.

I'd love to see the rest, but the Buzzfeed link is no good.

Link goes to Page Not Found. I think the term the kids would use in this instance is 'Meta'.

Very prophetic. It's amazing that the book holds so many life lessons. I had to fill in for a teacher one week and the kids did a power-point presentation on the book. The students got the gist of it spot on. I thought of how people today can't even acknowledge these parallels, but those teenagers called it. Giving examples, a few students mentioned Obamacare waivers for some- but not for others. There is hope out there. Thought you might like to know. Thanks again Gerard.
