  1. 1. What has happened in Orwell's fictional world before 1984? What was going on in the real world in the 1930s and 40s?

    2. Essentially, I agree with you, yet we don't always trust the media to tell us the complete truth. And now our cell phone calls and e-mails can be read by almost anyone. Also -- there are some places in the world that don't have freedom of speech or freedom of the press.

    3. An Orwellian element is something that Orwell wrote about -- such as thought police and newspeak.
