Wow, Joe, you're getting beat up on all sides today. Speaking of Orwell,
I've been reading his collective essays. A lot of the fears and
franticisms he raises are "your parent's fears" and don't necessarily
seem all that valid in a 'post-industrial' society, i.e. the information
age. We need a new Orwell for our time, hopefully somebody better than
Stafford Huyler's NetBoy ( don't bother clicking
on this, it's gone dark; another internet icon bites the dust) or
Sandra Bullock in 'The Net'.
