Wasn't Virginia Wolf aware of the big bad wolf, aka the THOUGHT police? After all, she drowned herself.

The same could be said about the omnipresent surveillance applied to victims of ZERSETZUNG these days!
It demands to know and record every little gesture or word uttered or heard by the victims in so called "life logs".
Some people claim that the current technology allows video streaming with the victims' complete visual through nano-implants shot in the eyes, but I am not yet certain of it.

Amazingly enough, Miss Felton was a progressive force for her day.

It's too bad that she fought for the rights of her gender, but did not even recognize the humanity of others, such as the "darkies".

Perhaps time wil reveal our own disgusting prejudices.

Or perhaps not.

Human progress is not linear and rights that we see now as unalienable are sometimes taken away for good.
