Thought Police Case-Mate Case
"Looks like you've had a bit too much to think!" says the Mustachioed THINKPOL officer as he walks up to Winston in a stern voice.
Winston must have must have forgotten to hide the disgust and loathing in his eyes, because the large man in black moved closer still, his eyes hiding behind mirrored aviator-styled sunglasses.
"You have something to say, sir?" His voice menacing now.
"No sir! No." Winston chirps nervously, averting his eyes as much as possible.
Very well, then. Let's move along." The officer's voice calms somewhat to a dulled, professional cadence. "Remember, closed minds stop thought crimes. Let's move along."
This Illustration was done by Dan McCall, and inspired by the great George Orwell's dystopian masterpiece Nineteen Eighty Four. While inspired by fiction, it's certainly far too close to reality today as America and much of the West charges toward full police states. From 80-year-old ladies being brutally hospitalized by police at the Occupy Wall Street protests, to high tech surveillance of individuals critical of the growing police state, the coarsening and closing of our culture is unfortunately no fiction at all.
