100 Years of Dystopia Series Episode 3

Big Brother Is Listening.  Why not you?

Author George Orwell saw the totalitarian dictators of the 1940s successfully conditioning the masses into accepting endless war as an eternal reality by the year 1984. Can meek propaganda writer John Hurt (Alien) evade the cameras and act on the salacious thoughtcrimes he has for mysterious co-worker Julia without being hauled away and shot? And when did those “Sweet Dreams” the Eurythmics sang about turn into such ghastly “Sexcrimes”?  Help Now Playing fight the oppression of corporate podcasting by becoming a Gold Level Donor today.
