but surely you must agree there are different degrees of censorship? I cannot imagine, for example, saidit censoring me for many of the personal thoughts I attempted to share with the world via reddit. I am sure I can find a line I cannot cross on saidit, but I am sure it is much further back (on the road to censure) than reddit's has been for the last several years.

Dang! You're at least the 5th reply to take me to task about using the term 'nazi' ...
... at least I haven't been banned for doing so!!!!
(and I will try to be a bit wiser with the title of my rants in the future! Promise!)

Mostly agree. But it is way too simplistic to say Orwell's novel warned about surveillance. To me, that book warned us more about the determination of those who do the surveillance, and their desire to exorcise every human passion from the soul, only to replace those passions with an unwavering passion for "the party", and an equally rabid hatred for "the enemy". Surveillance is a merely the many rivets that build the mighty structure that is "the party". It does not even matter what "the party" stands for. Nor does it matter who "the enemy" is. It only matters that the people have a pure love for the party in their hearts ... that love having been cultivated by "the party" itself methodically supplanting all human emotions with unquestioned love for "the party" above all else .. even above family, above love, above sex, above kindness, etc.
There is no question there are many competing interests in our world today, many of which would become Orwell's "party", even without overtly attempting to do so, merely because they are gaining the power to do so. We are rapidly coalescing into a small number of highly angry tribes, each tribe hating the others simply because their party leaders ritualistically (e.g., every night at 6pm) tell them they should hate other tribes.
OP here. It is just easier to use the term 'Nazis'. Especially for someone (like me) who hasn't given much thought to how to label the ppl and/or organizations that get me down. I appreciate the suggestions and will re-evaluate my phrasology (obscure Music Man reference!).

Kudos for Silversun Pickups! On of my favorites. Drummer had great energy that drove the band, kind of like Muppets' Animal but with his eyes closed!
OP here. You have a very good point. It is so much more than reddit. It is what has become of our world, both online and offline. Sad. Actually, on second thought, it is much more than sad, it is tragic.

He has been annoying as fuck since the day he came out of the womb and told the doctor he not only performed the delivery all wrong, but also only delivers babies for his own profit, whereas in Cuba ...
