Anyone who disagrees that 1984 is the greatest book ever written is either a shill or willfully ignorant.

Enders Game is probably my favorite book. If i were stuck on an island and i was able to find 1 book, that's what I want it to be (outside of how to build a raft) . So to me, i guess i consider it the greatest, but that goes with how you define great. If I also believe that any religious person will tell you that their "Bible" or religious text is the greatest book ever. Your choice of words is a bit over-the-top. People have opinions, we should respect that. Beats me saying no your paranoid or ignorant if you think 1984 is the greatest book ever.

As for the whole "Freedom is slavery".... Most people enjoyed their childhood and even College years because of the lack of responsibility. No kids to worry about, no bills to pay, you get to do whatever you want outside of the few requests that are given. As a kid, your parents give you a few chores to do, and if your room is clean you can go out and play with your friends until its dark. At that point, you go home and you are given a meal and told to go to bed a certain time. If prisons were not hostile environments, you basically get the same thing. Some people enjoy not having to worry about things. Some cultures even focus on that mentality.

I hate deciding what to eat for dinner, so I always leave it up to my wife, but at the same time, i cant complain because I gave her the power to make that choice for me. So, I gain more freedom because i have less things I am required to do and think about, but I am a slave in a sense that i have no choice. Granted, its easier for me to tell my wife that I dont want pesto anymore than it is to tell a government I dont want socialized healthcare. But good luck as a kid telling their parents you want to stay out past midnight.
