Versus Movie #141. It's time. I am officially reviewing the movie "1984". Everyone and their grandma knows this is a classic story about dystopia in an imagined future back before 1984 of course. What they imagined long ago is rather scary when you think about it. What did they imagine? A world at war constantly. The economy fed by war. War was the economy of the future here. I don't really understand that concept myself though since devastation takes money and puts people in poverty. I think how it works it with too much devastation they would herd us like cattle into enormous armored forts that function as makeshift cities to protect us, but at the cost of our liberty. This way they don't care how much annihilation is taking place outside the armored city walls and people have no choice but to listen to their new rules and laws or die. Death is not a hard punishment to imagine in a war ravaged world. This punishment goes for many things in this movie too. Imagine love being outlawed. Not only a 1 child policy but love itself. If things get bad enough and the military were to take over then a military state can impose any law they see fit. War becomes the religion and the news. It's a way of life in this world. Dictators rule everywhere. This is a savage outlook on humanity's future if I ever saw one. And in the midst of all this chaos are two people that dare to find love. What's the price of love in this world? It would be death like any other broken law. I can't even fathom a world where love is punishable by death. It sounds like they would only want you to propagate when they allow it to control the population so love holds no purpose to them. A military state would be the worst possible scenario. They would keep war going indefinitely just to give people some reason to work. Oh now it makes sense... they would put us to work making tanks, guns, uniforms, rations, etc. and all jobs would have the same purpose. To help the war effort. What a frightening thought that is. It's hard to believe this movie was made so long ago. It's a work of art and a warning to us.
