1+1+1 for 365 day 6: Scary stuff

TODAY'S QUOTE:   "Big Brother is watching you."
OK, since it was so short, here is another by the same author: "In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act."

Still too short?  Well, I am really breaking my own rules, but here  is a third one: "Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."

And all those come, of course, from George Orwell.

1984 by George Orwell
This is not a work of gothic horror. It is not about murder, war, vampires or some extraterrestrial threat to Earth.  But few books are as scary as this one.  
Yet as much as it is uncomfortable to read as it may be, there are few other books that I would rather recommend for every single person in their late teens and early twenties - and again once every decade or so thereafter.
