Dead Poets Society meets 1984

This short video–that can best be describe as Dead Poets Society meets 1984–is spawned from George Orwell’s concept that in a totalitarian society 2+2 can equal 5 if your rulers say it does.

This video has haunted me since I first watched it several days ago, as I expect it will for some of you too.

It is a disturbing commentary on our current society on so many  levels, including how our public schools and colleges no longer teach us how to think, but tell us what to think.

Viewer discretion is advised for a single depiction of violence.
