The Super Bowl TV Commercial I Will Never Forget

January 22, 1984. Half-time of Super Bowl XVIII. The Los Angeles Raiders went into the locker room up 21-3 on the Washington Redskins. I was watching the game at my family’s place in the Chicago suburbs when this came on the TV set:

Blew my mind, although I wouldn’t really fully-comprehend what I had just seen until I read George Orwell’s 1984 four years later as a school assignment.

Fast forward to 2016. It may just be me and my cautious nature, but I’m increasingly-concerned these days the “American dream” is in real danger of eventually becoming the “Orwellian nightmare” depicted in that TV ad.

With the perplexing indifference/participation of the masses, I might add.

2+2=5. We’re on our way, it seems.
