Review: Orwell: Ignorance is Strength

March 26, 2018 1 min read

What is the 'truth', these days? As we slip further into niche news outlets, right wing or liberal, the truth is becoming less about the facts and more about the emotional response. Opinions are being published and weaponised on a daily basis, articles are turning into clickbait videos, and forums are in danger of being black and white echo chambers. The web might seem like a mistake for journalism, but it's also an opportunity for those who know how to exploit those emotions for their own gain.

In response to this, Orwell's second season, Ignorance is Strength, attempts to create its own reflective war of information, where surveillance is no longer used to find the facts, just ways to hurt its opponents. But thoughout its politcial thriller ambitions, Orwell never forgets about the victims beyond the black mirror.
