Funny that the artist seems to use the depiction of "big brother" from the Apple 1984 Mac ads.

We're definitely going the Huxley way.

I think that's mostly true but I see it as a two tier system.

If the Huxley don't get ya then the Orwell will.

I think you've got the makings of a song there.

Perhaps...

Don't matter if ya run
Don't bother sittin still
Cuz if the Huxley don't get ya
then the Orwell will..
