"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever." (1984) 5

Of course, it was also the depressing conclusion of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor that human beings would rather be controlled than free, which perhaps explains why totalitarianism and fascism are rampant in the world, and continuing to gain strength daily, which seems (sadly) to validate their bleak assertion.

This quote is obviously taken from Orwells famous book:

"A beginners Guide to Peace and Tranquillity"

Orwell was brilliant, but sometimes a bit melodramatic. Of course, he had some pretty intense experiences.

Translated, this was Orwell's way of saying, totalitarianism was the end result of any controlled-based society, including the one in which he wrote about...a post-apocolptic distopian shadow world dominated by a total lack of basic freedoms, teeming with swarms of flies, toxic dust, billowing smoke and poisoned dreams.

Ah, yes. Isn't this one in Daily Path to Inner Peace, Optimistic Quotes for a New Age of Positive Thinking? Oh, never mind, wrong author. -- seriously, this is the most memorable quote from 1984 for me.
