Stephanie It's been too long since I've read this. You bring it all back. Definitely, "1984" is a popular culture icon. It's taught in some schools (though I'm glad it wasn't in any way ruined for you!). Yet, crazy how relevant the themes are for our earlier worldview discussion.

I really liked this quote: “In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness."

As soon as our belief becomes "the party line" and we cease to think things through, we become unconscious. Good stuff.
