Gunther Grass' Poem

It is difficult to speak of some things, and seemingly has been for over 60 years. We are in the trap of the 1984 parallel universe.

The basis of the 1984-Verse is Thoughtcrime, which is a willingness to disagree with unpleasant orthodoxies.

Orwell's telescreens are portable in the 1984-Verse, being much like iPhones and carried about and texted on by citizens. The surveillance is done by the Ministry of Love.

There is no Love, obviously. There is Hatred supported by Orthodoxy.
