Today in Heritage History, April 4, 1984, Winston Smith in George Orwell’s 1984, begins his secret diary;

Dear Diary;

The government has camera’s watching us everywhere. They watch our every move. International corporations and the rich own the government and the courts. Even justice can be “bought”. They “regulate” everything, from our jobs, to even the details regarding personal decisions about our own bodies. Citizen rights are under assault everywhere. I don’t know why people aren’t in the streets rioting. Oh crap, gotta go. Can’t miss this week’s Jersey Shore. More tomorrow after Dancing with the Stars elimination show. Love.
