In a world where perpetual war is waged against terrorism and our leaders have no accountability, where freedom of speech is a memory, a team of interrogators equipped with Winston Smith’s diary coerce him into acknowledging his crimes against the state and his ultimate rebellion: his love for 9752 Larson, Julia.

In the new millennium. we are led to believe that we all under constant threat  from terrorists, foreigners, strangers, the different, the guy at the Seven Eleven, the black kid on
the corner! Every suicide bombing, Osama Bin Gangsta, radical abusive nanny environmentalist is out to get you, so please don’t notice that the Nation your parents built is being stolen in front of your eyes, and the rights won with a hundred years of blood are being taken from you. Doubt is treason, and Fear will distract you, so the message has become "Be afraid - be very afraid.".
Big Brother says, Ignorance is Strength, Freedom is Slavery, War is Peace.

Michael Gene Sullivan
