This thread is so confusing. Are you asking if I believe the year 1984 happened or are you asking if the book "1984" literally exists, like is it a real book? I can't tell which question the OP is asking. The answer for both is "no" though.

Probably this. Brave New World was all about making people "happy" and using genetics and peer pressure and subtle propaganda to make them do what you want. The ambition of the guys in charge wasn't so vast, no stamping on a human face for all eternity or aggressively wiping out words and concepts, and no actual torture. Why would you? That poo poo's dumb, and expensive. Why torture a malcontent when you can get a hundred hot chicks to have an orgy with him to such an extent that it overwhelms his moral principles and he commits suicide? Make them forget concepts like "freedom" by using apathy and contentment and making people forget it all bit by bit. And end the war on drugs by making your own drug, a better drug, and not only is everyone too totally high to protest against everything you do but all the meth cooks are suddenly in the dole queue alongside everyone else out of a job.

Then again, 1984 had that surveillance culture thing, which is good for pre-empting stuff. But they did it all wrong. Say if you find a guy who might be a terrorist? Don't send the feds around, hire a prostitute, clearly all he needs is a good lay (actually mentioned in the book), and it is substantially cheaper. Or put drugs in his water supply.

The 5% threads is necessary for all the autists who don't respond to hookers or drugs. Give them somewhere "anonymous" to complain on, where their every word is analysed by shrinks, and their IPs traced. It's for their own good, after all.

I lived through 1984. Lots of girls had goofy hair and wore several Duran Duran pins on their pastel outfits. I really didn't like 1984 honestly.

I was born in 1986, therefore I have no perception of 1984. To my knowledge, the year of 1984 does not exist, time simply did not exist back then. All I perceive is a nothingness of non-time, it isn't even black, it's just nothing. So, I'm sorry, but no. You are not real
