Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

On this day sixty-two years ago, George Orwell passed away, soon after the publication of his final novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, an ugly glimpse at a dystopian future where the world is run by totalitarian regimes. This weekend’s video is a climactic scene from the movie, showing protagonist Winston Smith being tortured by Inner Party member O’Brien.

O’Brien tells Smith that, “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever.” O’Brien goes on to argue that “the individual is only a cell, Winston, and the weariness of the cell is the vigor of the organism.”

“You’ll fail,” Winston responds. “Something will defeat you. . . . some spirit . . . the spirit of man.”

In Orwell’s book, the spirit of man is defeated, destroyed. Thankfully, in our lives, we can write our own ending.
