So my younger brother is a Sophomore in high school and is currently studying Orwell's 1984. His teacher puts up a discussion online and this is a thought of his that I found ... rather profound for a 16 year-old:
The idea of unified thinking, decision making, and gov’t is when freedom will start to become obsolete. Freedom of thought is disunity, non unification, and difference in opinionFreedom of thought is disunity.... hmmmm
Well to the political class ... thought is dangerous. Don't think for yourself, Don't question authority, Don't oppose the "experts".
