Philosophical Reflections from a Chinese Mirror

Abstract

George Orwell may have had the date wrong, but the frightening world he described in 1984 could yet become a reality if current geopolitical trends at home and abroad continue unchecked. Here in the U.S. the misnamed Patriot Act, tortured legal arguments for torture, warrantless surveillance, military adventurism fueled by a defense budget that is out of control, being labeled a terrorist sympathasizer if you challenge the government—all of this and more can only make Big Brother smile.
