After stealing the private data of billions of people, and being caught committing many acts of corruption, Facebook wants you to install an Orwellian Facebook Portal telescreen in your home which will follow you around wherever you go.
This Facebook device with a camera and listening device may one day have to be installed in every home as a compulsory measure, but for now, it is being introduced as a voluntary purchasable option. Yeah! As if anyone would be mad enough to trust a company that actively accesses users private data, and sells it to any government agency or business that wants it.
Inside the flat a fruity voice was reading out a list of figures which had something to do with the production of pig-iron. The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall. Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, though the words were still distinguishable. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely.
What kind of a moron would pay for their own surveillance? Well, there are many millennials today, who will no doubt be queuing round the block to purchase this portal, but this is completely understandable because many are vapid, illiterates who know nothing about Orwell, or privacy for that matter. This is why they still keep a Facebook page even after it admitted fully to misusing their private data for profit. The millennials have been conditioned to accept every indignity, to abhor freedom, to abhor privacy, and to obey their master controllers at all cost.
Not only do they know what you are thinking these days but they also want to know what you are doing and saying when off the internet, in your own home.
The dystopian nightmare we are all living in today, is way worse than George Orwell ever dreamed about whilst writing 1984 in his little Scottish shack. In fact, if Orwell were ever to see the nightmare of today, he would cringe and cry out at its sheer vulgarity and utter disregard for the human soul. For what we have become is part of a hive mind that exists in a cold hard digital shell that infects and probes every part of the human condition, rendering it null and void of any humanity after it has completely enveloped you and exercised its digital wrath upon your very being.
It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself – anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.
The tech wizards who are complicit in this tortuous exercise of enslavement are the harbingers of an authoritarian, totalitarian scientific dictatorship, that not only Orwell would have balked at, but add in Bertrand Russell and Aldous Huxley into the mix.
Every home will soon have to have a telescreen (Facebook Portal) and you will not be able to escape the prying eyes of your masters as they track your every move online, or your smartphone, or the screen watching and listening to you in your own home.
Many today, cannot turn off their smartphones for one second, so it is inevitable that they will soon accept these Facebook Portal devices into their homes as well. It is only a matter of time.
He took his scribbling pad on his knee and pushed back his chair so as to get as far away from the telescreen as possible. To keep your face expressionless was not difficult, and even your breathing could be controlled, with an effort: but you could not control the beating of your heart, and the telescreen was quite delicate enough to pick it up.
No doubt, in the future, if there is a reason for any recall, the authorities will simply be able to pinpoint a thing you said at home, and use that as evidence against you, especially one supposes if you are running for public office or are linked to any business, or lower governmental agency. The courts will be filled with video evidence of whatever crime was committed, and the lead up to that certain crime. If you utter an expletive against the government at home, this will be logged, if you show any form of dissent towards the faction in control, this will be logged as ‘hate speech’ and you will eventually find yourself taken away in the dark hours of the night, never to be seen again.
Today, many are caught out by their words on social media, and they have paid the price by losing their jobs, their livelihoods, their family and ultimately their lives. Twitter death can come easily, as you can be arrested and put in a cell in the same afternoon you penned that certain tweet.
Suffice to say, anyone who trusts certain nefarious tech companies and what they can do to you are idiots who possibly deserve everything that comes to them.
Nineteen Eighty Four was nothing next to the shit that is going on today..nothing.
