Alright my paranoid friends, Big Brother IS watching!! When I was in high school I had this great English teacher named Mr. Finley. He was a very progressive guy. This was 10th grade English and he had us reading “The Hidden Persuaders”, “Brave New World”, “1984” and “Animal Farm”. We talked a lot about Big Brother, hidden influences and somebody always watching your every move and trying to affect your thoughts, actions and even your feelings.
