"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
I guess Orwell lost something in translation to Spanish...
Perhaps this is part of the Spanish green energy policy.The next step is installing a generator attached to Orwell's corpse.

Heh.I'd correct it, but then your comment (which made me Ell-Oh-Ell) would be spoilt. So I'll leave it as a monument to my oldthink. :)
Words fail. This *must* go viral.
Not feeling it, myself.I'd go read 1984 again before trying to point out irony here; I don't see any.(Especially since Orwell's name is on Spanish streets for his service to the Republicans during the Civil War and his Homage to Catalonia, not for his political theorizing.)1984 had pervasive surveillance ... of mid-level Party functionaries. Not of the Proles [and thus of the general public areas] - because the Proles had no power and thus weren't threats - and not of the Party Elite.Orwell isn't a cipher for "no cameras!!!" - he was making cutting attacks on Socialist party internal politics and thought-policing.(I suspect that he might not have been against public-area crime-deterrent surveillance, though I also see no particular reason to believe he'd be much for it either.It's a stupid waste of money, but it's not making Mr. Orwell spin in his grave.)
I wasn't going to point out that Sigivald overthink much, but I'd hate to let WV: equencow go to waste.Horses and cattle are interfertile? who knew?
