“1984″ by George Orwell
The term “Big Brother” was not coined by a television show, but rather by George Orwell in his classic dystopian novel “1984.” This novel is the perfect book for anyone, teenagers included, who is interested in government conspiracy, mind control, and revolution against a government so powerful they can tell you what to think. The hero of this story, Winston Smith, works as a revisionist news writer whose job it is to rewrite news articles so they match the current political party. Among this, the public is persecuted for individualism and critical thought. Winston Smith spends his days hoping that he can someday revolt against this mind control. This book shows us the dangers of giving any governing body too much power.
