Is 1984 Happening Right now?

Medias perpetuation of Hysteria and Xenophobia- The war and Eastasia and Eurasia
Music Video
Hacking Into Your Home
Devices are becoming "smarter"
Increased amount of access points to internet connection which leaves potential for hackers.
Because of the high volume of connected devices, it will require software upgrades, and better consumer education.
These home "smart" devices are not going through thorough testing.
Is our secret safe tonight
And are we out of sight
Or will our world come tumbling down?
Will they find our hiding place
Is this our last embrace
Or will the walls start caving in?

(It could be wrong, could be wrong) But it should have been right
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) To let our hearts ignite
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) Are we digging a hole?
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) This is out of control

(It could be wrong, could be wrong) It could never last
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) Must erase it fast
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) But it could have been right
(It could be wrong, could be...)

Love is our resistance
They'll keep us apart and they won't stop breaking us down
Hold me
Our lips must always be sealed
Court rules NSA program illegal
The NSA Is Spying On Americans
Joey Lodge, Erik Stumpf, Tyler Smalley, Konnor Fahy, Josh Rosenberg, Hunter Luzzi,

If we live a life in fear
I'll wait a thousand years
Just to see you smile again

Kill your prayers for love and peace
You'll wake the thought police
We can't hide the truth inside

(It could be wrong, could be wrong) But it should have been right
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) To let our hearts ignite
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) Are we digging a hole?

(It could be wrong, could be wrong) This is out of control
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) It could never last
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) Must erase it fast
(It could be wrong, could be wrong) But it could have been right
(It could be wrong, could be...)

Love is our resistance
They'll keep us apart and they won't stop breaking us down
Hold me
Our lips must always be sealed

The night has reached its end
We can't pretend
We must run
We must run
It's time to run
Take us away from here
Protect us from further harm
Resistance
This song relates to 1984 because
It talks about Julia and Winston's love
The lyrics state how love is resistance just as Winston does
"I don't mean confessing. Confessing isn't betrayal. I mean feelings. If they can make me change my feelings. If they can stop me from loving you, that would be real betrayal" (166)
The song states that "It will never last" as Winston predicted and was worried about
"We are dead...Not physically. Six months, a year--five years" (136).
At the end the song states "We must run" just as Winston and Julia thought of right before they were arrested by the Thought Police
General Theme: Love is resistance
Kim Jong Un: Power Hungry
The federal appeals court had ruled that telephone metadata is illegal under the patriot act
The organization can gather bulk data of information from phone calls. It does not take the content of the call, only the number it has called and the duration of the call.
It searches the records for numbers affiliated with or connections to terrorist organizations.
This is similar to how the telescreens in 1984 keep track of every word and gesture from the population.
"Inside the flat a fruity voice was reading out a list of figures which had something to do with the production of pig-iron. The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall. Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, though the words were still distinguishable. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely." (Orwell 2)
News reports in December 2005 first revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been intercepting Americans’ phone calls and Internet communications.
Secret government documents, published by the media in 2013, confirm the NSA obtains full copies of everything
All of these surveillance activities are in violation of the privacy safeguards established by Congress and the US Constitution.
"The reports showed-and the government later admitted—that the government is mass collecting phone metadata of all US customers under the guise of the Patriot Act. "(EFF.com)
Summary:
This article talks about how hungry the Korean dictator is for power.
In order to stay in control, he will go to the extreme and will execute those who pose as competition, a threat, or as disloyal to him.
He had his own uncle, ex-girlfriend, and many others executed for such as attempting to overthrow him, and pornography charges. It was rumored that Kim's wife was jealous of the women in the orchestra his ex was in, and requested the execution of a dozen women, including his ex-girlfriend.
He also kills many of his higher officials, due to the fact that they have power they can use to overthrow him and betray him.
Don't Let This Happen
"Any sound Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system... It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live- did live, from habit that became instinct- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized." (Orwell 3)
"People simply disappeared, always during the night. Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated:
vaporized
was the usual word." (Orwell pg. 19)
