‘Big Brother’ is a meme.
George Orwell wrote 1984 in 1948.
Big Brother arrived relatively recently, and is growing in strength.
What I wonder is: would Big Brother be here now if George Orwell hadn’t kick-started the meme?
P.S. I was going to title this ‘Chicken, meet Egg’. But when I try to use that title, I cannot publish this blog entry. According to this software, the title ‘Chicken, meet Egg’ ‘contains language that is prohibited’.
