Paging Winston Smith

One of the problems with not having a live cable feed at home is that you can miss politico-cultural events of significance.

This ad caught my eye at the gymn this morning. While the theme is supposedly about fiscal matters, trade, and taxes, it was hard for someone of my age not to see echoes of the Macintosh “Big Brother” ad, as well as the Manchurian candidate. For me it was a creepy preview of a coming age of crazed “minute of hate” propaganda.
