Turning Point: The top E.U. court orders Google to grant the “right to be forgotten.'’
It is now a journalistic cliché to remark that George Orwell’s “1984” was “prophetic.” The novel was so prophetic that its prophecies have become modern-day prosaisms. Reading it now is a tedious experience. Against the omniscient marvels of today’s surveillance state, Big Brother’s fixtures — the watchful televisions and hidden microphones — seem quaint, even reassuring.
Everything about the world Orwell envisioned has become so obvious that one keeps running up against the novel’s narrative shortcomings.
