Stay Awake: Orwell's 1984 in 2016

We live in turbulent times mired in the problems of perpetual war and insecurity. The Internet has brought to light the caustic tales of oppression, propaganda, and rebellion. Peace has become the outlier. In a time where unprecedented scientific discoveries and efficiency have ruled the day, the people have become less free, more fearful and ultimately disposable. Our world has become a dystopian, inverted, totalitarian state. We have become the batteries in the matrix. The fodder for the war machine.
