In our last reading, we learned that the courageous rebellion of falling in love is proportionate to the risk Winston takes attempting to even lay eyes on Julia, his lustful comrade in crime.
With surveillance telescreens and hidden microphones in every corner of Oceania, the culture of suspicion that prevails, and the eagerness of the brainwashed to be informants, INGSOC has kept Party members conditioned for superficial exchanges and apathetic towards their monitored isolation, the promise of the ever-watching Big Brother enough to keep them docile and compliant.
I couldn't help but envision a two-tiered society of our not-too-distant future, where family members struggle to see their relatives cast out to the fringes for not accepting the new world the globalist tyrants have on deck for our communities, fraught with unsafe medical procedures, digital IDS, and social credit systems.

You might think this is okay for you, and why would you care; you know how to stay on board, yeah?
To think that would require the presumption that this type of all-encompassing control will maintain in the hands of those who want the best for you and would never do anything to harm you when, sadly, it is headed straight into the hands of the devilish puppet-masters attempting to destroy your world on every front.

Don't get mated; make a move for your family's future today!
