1984 in 2012

In the book 1984 by George Orwell, history was rewritten in order to justify the dominance of Big Brother (i.e. the government). Well folks, it is happening today. Just check out the following few examples.

Or how about this,

The freedoms and liberty that we enjoy in this country are not something that will always just exist. It requires a vigilant citizenry for us to maintain these rights. While we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, they will not stay forever if we shirk our responsibilities and become apathetic and ignorant of them. Keep your eyes open and understand that our freedoms are not secured by political parties but by an adherence to the principles of liberty and our Constitutional God-given rights. To quote Patrick Henry:
“Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”
