In 1984, Television Watches YOU! What a ridiculous concept! Like we modern Americans would ever subject ourselves to being observed like that through electronic means! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go play my X-Bone with Kinect, and post videos of myself doing silly things on YouTube.

It’s an interesting point you make about people interpreting this book as a warning to both nationalism and socialism. Personally I felt 1984 was against nationalism, and Animal Farm was against socialism. I suppose though that supports the theory that political extremes begin to come back around to become one in the same.
