Orwell's Nightmare.

 

George Orwell envisioned a society completely controlled by the government. This control was so complete as to include the citizens thoughts.

 

Today we have corporations actually firing people on the basis of what they do on their leisure time. Smokers, obesity, and alcohol use have been targeted by employers as reasons for dismissal. I contend this is the 1984 envisioned by Orwell.

 

Thoughts?

Are the Employers Government Employers' date=' or did the Government force the Employers to fire them for these reasons?[/quote']

 

No, but what I'm saying is that the details of the government and corporation might have swapped, but the results are the same.

Then, yeah, That's thought control. But then so are laws that prohibit the employment of those who fail to pass a Drug Test.

Indeed... have any of you watched old manga series? Most of them didn't sport monsters per se but corporations as the monsters of the future (and yes... some corps made monsters but that was not the point, those monsters you could take down with ease... but corporations that everyone believe in and is willing to follow? not so easy)
