Now, the premise of this article is overdone. We've heard this a thousand times, "We're living in an Orwellian society". Unfortunately, the effect of this is to reduce the impact of that statement. Instead of actively analyzing things, people just roll there eyes. However, this article does a great deal to redeem itself from that fact.

Read it, share it with your back-patting-like-thinking crowd, but find better ways to express things to people who don't agree with you.
