Orwellian.... It's a well-worn term at risk of becoming so cliché and fashionable that ironically its meaning gets lost. "Orwellian" has gained meme status saturating pop culture signaling its place as a literary cross over to a widely recognizable concern for society. But "bumper sticker" warnings are insufficient when addressing serious issues. What matters is we live in a society - a world - where the clarity of wisdom prevails over paranoia and all our challenges are met with what matters.
This story - 2024 - reaches past the literature of Orwellian prophecy to reveal that not enough of us realize how close our current society is to dystopian collapse. This story is not the meme du jour. It is not a "bumper sticker" warning. It is not paranoia. This story is a description of the gravitational pull toward dystopia when freedom of thought and freedom of speech are extinguished. Without these freedoms we are like the frog that gets slowly boiled to death and doesn't realize it until it's too late...
The year is 2024.
Meet Harry Archer. Authoritarian laws on language, thought, and speech are strictly enforced by the totalitarian Party Regime in control of government and culture. Personal freedoms derived from unalienable rights are crimes punishable by the state. Read 2024 to see how Harry manages in this world. Find out what happens to him, and by extension, what happens to all of us. Like the frog, is it too late? Or do we still have time?
"A remarkable story! But is it really fiction?"
Dr. Karlyn Borysenko Organizational Psychologist, YouTube Personality
"This is an essay, wrapped in a work of fictions, laced with intellectual insights combined with satire, humor, and a level of sadness and pain because it's based on here and now and truth."
