NEW-WAVE BOOK CLUB
« on: September 17, 2012, 06:47:10 pm »
So, I just read this wonderful novel by George Orwell called "1984." It's the deeply reassuring tale of a future utopia where we are all safe beneath the watchful and benevolent eyes of a big, cuddly government called Big Brother. My favorite thing about this future world is that it seems so plausible! I sure hope we can make our world just as safe and secure as the one in the book while I'm still alive.

Yeah. Those people don't even have to agonize over relationships, Big Brother picks your spouse FOR you. Think of all the suffering that could be avoided! It's like letting OK Cupid find the PERFECT MATCH, only EVERYBODY WOULD PARTICIPATE!

I DIDN'T LIKE THIS BOOK BECAUSE I'M NOT AFRAID OF RATS AND I THINK ITS DUMB THAT HES SO AFRAID FO RATS THAT HE STOPS BEING IN LOVE WITH THAT GIRL BECAUSE WHOSE REALLY THAT AFRAID OF RATS RIGHT?

WE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK POKER WITHOUT CARDS NEXT I THINK IT'D BE AWESOME.

I have a feeling that we're heading towards all possible utopias at once.

BUT DID THE RATS CHEW HIS FACE OR DID HE JUST THINK THEY WERE COMING TO CHEW HIS FACE BECAUSE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE AND I HAVEN'T READ THIS BOOK IN A LONG TIME BECAUSE IT GIVES ME A HEADACHE SO I FORGOT. BUT LIKE IF HE REALLY GOT HIS FACE ALL BIT UP BY RATS THEN MAYBE SOME KIND OF RAT GERMS GOT IN AND DID SOMETHING TO HIS BRAIN BECAUSE HE WAS DIFFERENT AFTER THAT. BECAUSE RATS ARE REALLY DIRTY AND THEY CARRY STUFF AND YOU HAVE TO KILL THEM WHEN THEY COME IN YOUR HOUSE BECAUSE PEOPLE COULD GET SICK AND HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF SOMEBODY DIED BECAUSE YOU WOULDN'T KILL RATS? SO YEAH MAYBE IT WAS RAT BITES OR HE NEVER REALLY LOVED HER IN THE FIRST PLACE OR THE RATS WOULDN'T HAVE MADE ANY DIFFERENCE. SO IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT WHEN YOU MEET SOMEBODY TO FIND OUT WHAT SCARES THEM AND DO THAT OR THEY COULD END UP LEAVING.
THE END.

I don't understand why they let the proles keep living when they're obviously such a problem.  The rest of the country is so nice and the proles are all fat and ugly and there's too many of them.  It's so unrealistic!  I just feel like if the book actually happened then the proles would be too much of a problem to just let them do their thing.
