2017: The telescreen

The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneousely. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You hat to live---did live, from habit that became instict---in the assumption, that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.

Gaga singt Dada aus der Statt der tausend Dröhne. Ein marginalisierter macht merglig kunst aus künstlich wohrten. Sieben schnabel überdruss.
