    The 4th was already being eroded (eg; property forfeiture for merely being accused of crime) before 9/11, but when we (stupidly) gave up more of it for the illusion of a little security, we handed the terrorists a victory.

    1984 was here a LONG time before 1984 — it’s
    just that the hardware is more sophisticated than
    it was in 1984 OR in “1984.”

    My brother used to tell me the original title was 1948…..BTW, the year 2,000 doesn’t sound that futuristic any more does it? Man, that was the gold standard for referring to the future for a while there…..

    It was written in 1948, and Orwell chose the future date by reversing the last two digits.

    Is that an up-side-down YIELD sign? Maybe like saying “resistance is futile”.

    Is that standard or metric time?
