George Orwell’s ‘Two-thousand and Eighty-four’

“Two Hundred”

“Three Hundred”

“Four Hundred”… The counting began.

The daily routine of the advertising boards always began like this every single morning. At 14am it was the same. We had to see it. We needed to read it, watch it and enjoy it. That was the rules, no one could do anything differently. It lasted for about 3 minutes, the whole of society was in a state of hypnotism. Then it was finished and as a whole every single person except for children under the age of 15 needed to report back to the Apple iPad.

This is how it was in the year 2084, the government Apple were in charge. The government was a dictatorship and did not give us the choice of what to watch, what to publish or what to do. It was an Utopian society where everything was run by Apple. Religion became obsolete as the Internet was worshiped and became God. Books and printing material became instinct 30 years ago and replaced by our security the Apple iPad. Connectivity and mobility were looked after by the Apple iPhone. There was no way out.

It was time to input our daily thoughts into the Apple iPad. Each individual would pick up their personal iPad, input password and fingerprint and would begin to type out their personal thoughts of what we had seen. The material that we were forced to write was then submitted to the Prime Minister. The material that was written was then published on a ticker that was streamed around the world. It would be displayed on buildings, signs and apartments to show the positive thoughts of our fellow beings of the advertising from our all mighty government. This was to keep the positivity up throughout society, to shape the thinking of society into what Apple wanted it to be. It eliminated revolt, change and differing political ideas.

I am 94 years old. Coming to the end of my life. The social  change through publishing was so dramatic that we lost our individualism. The advancements in technology were so rapid that our society came to worship Apple. From the beginning of existence to the early 21st century we were able to publish what we wanted, we had something i vaguely remember as freedom of speech.

This is my entry for today Apple iPad. Hopefully one day someone will read this and begin to revolutionise the way we live today and destroy you and your fellow government body.
