I'm in the middle of studying 1984 by George Orwell . It's a frightening book but more so for me because it's describing the Borg to the letter almost just by another name.
Right down to the changing of history to suit BB doctrine, the younger generation not believing anymore but finding ways around the rules to live their own lives. The culture of squealing on others and kids being taught to do that even to their own parents. The suppression of sex and the sex impulse . The idea that they are at war against a brotherhood/apostate enemy . Traitors who are wiped off the record to not exsist anymore (shunning ), the double speak, nu speak, the hate week (conventions ) etc etc I could go on and on
Is it possible that the GB have been using 1984 as a kind of text book? To get their ideas?
Finally I agree with Winston , if the revolution happens it has to come from the proles... the rank and file to you and me
BTW I asked my jw parent had they ever read the book and they said "no, I decided it was propaganda". They actually said that!
