Dystopian fiction certainly has its place.  I would hope Orwell’s 1984 should be required reading in high school literature courses.


Considering what we have seen playing out in the states with our FBI, there we see the danger of one-way transparency.  When it is made into reciprocal transparency, those who enjoyed living behind the one-way mirror cry foul.


Watch closely Avant.  What is happening right now is very important.  Watch over the next few weeks.  Long live reciprocal transparency.
