    You know cremation is starting to not seem so bad. When my body finally gives out. I am not in any hurry but I certainly have no sense of dread.

    The thought-police are just conditioning them to report on their friends and neighbors in the future.

    It is biblical and like many things, it is one little piece at a time until it is accomplished.
    New American Standard Bible
    And the people will be oppressed, Each one by another, and each one by his neighbor; The youth will storm against the elder And the inferior against the honorable.

    Everyone an informer = Standard totalitarian ideal. There is a standard countermeasure - the hierarchy of cells. And several 'standard' outcomes, all of them bad. Seems like all of these social control people are either ignorant of history or "control freaks" who don't care about the evil they do. There are at least two ways to make bigots; this is one of them.

    Many summers have passed since I read Huxley's Brave New World; seems like this plan was in there.

    Brave New World and 1984 used to be the Big Two Totalitarian Future stories when I was a young adult. BNW is the more subtle, 'civilized' of the two. It could be modified to utilize modern technology pretty easily, without changing the creeping evil presence I felt when I read it. Big Brother is obviously watching us now; those British twits are just filling in the tiny chinks that are remaining.

    Both of those books are good. So is "Atlas Shrugged", but it's a lot longer book.

    Wasn't Walden II by B F Skinner kind of the same story? I know I read it, but don't recall the story line.
