Your George Orwell MomentBy Nightcharm / Tuesday, April 10th, 2007
Welcome, Winston, to the Ministry of Love.
You are afraid, aren’t you? The man with the truncheon by the door is frightening you. Have you been guilty of a thoughtcrime, Winston? Your neighbor’s daughter said she heard you singing in your apartment. Were you singing, Winston?
I told you once before that if we ever met again it would be here. This is Room 101. Sit in the chair. The wires are connected to a terminus that will send volts through your body. The more I turn the dial, the more volts. You are shaking, Winston. You are imagining indescribable pain. We have watched you, Winston. We have heard you. You were singing in your apartment. Are you a traitor, Winston? Have you tried to overthrow Big Brother? Have you made up your own rules? We have the tape:
MONEY QUOTE: “… some people are just nice.”
RUNNER-UP: “Thou shalt not judge a book by its cover, thou shalt not judge Lethal Weapon by Danny Glover.”
