    It's almost scary how something written in the 80's could have so much relevance to today,
    and of course my personal favorite...from the novel and movie, but inspired by Thomas Jefferson,

    And of course Orwell still has relevance almost 60 years after publishing 1984, the changes have been small, inches at a time...but inches turn to feet and feet to miles. And then... you only have inches.

    Oh ok, cool. It's kind of weird how that book was written that long ago and can almost accurately predict such behavior... I'm sure plenty of people thought Orwell was crazy then as do many feel about those with non-mainstream opinions now.

    Ever read Atlas Shrugged?

    You would never know it was 1950s to read it . . .

    Published in the 50s, written in the 40s, I think. It could have been today.

    One of my favorites.

    Ever read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley?

    Yes. Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury? All along the same lines.

    Or with a slightly different point of view, The Trial?
