Did Orwell's World sneak up on us?

Welcome to Orwell's World 2010

By John Pilger

In Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell described a superstate called Oceania, whose language of war inverted lies that "passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past', ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past'.

'Oceania' seems a thinly veiled reference to America as 'Atlantis', don't you think?

Is anyone there? Back from holidays? I'm about to leave again for the weekend for festivities continue here (even Sun Caps must have birthdays sometimes) so slam a door to let me know you're echoing around in here...hmm? Wouldja?
