“It is discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.” Noel Coward
George Orwell’s 1984 introduced the neologism “Big Brother” into our language, psyches and culture. Big Brother was the dictator of Orwell’s totalitarian state in which everyone was under constant surveillance, and thereby under the control of the state. While many perceive Orwell as being ahead of his time, in fact, he was late by several millennia. As it turns out, according to the Biblical record’s prophecies, Big Brother literally is our big brother.
