We have something called "freedom of speech" in the United States. I'm beginning to wonder if George Orwell was in fact a time traveler or could maybe see the future and was trying to warn us of things to come. But alas, here we are stuck in a dystopian fantasy novel. Furthermore, only dictators ban words and try to take complete control. This country is downward spiraling so fast, I don't know if we're seeing an oligarchy or a fascist regime forming right before our eyes.
