George Orwell's "1984": Is The Technology He Spoke Of Possible? Could "Big Brother" Really Be Watching?

We can't know what George Orwell, author of Nineteen Eighty-Four, would think about his old neighborhood being watched by dozens of cameras. It's not hard to make an educated guess.But while the West is a society under surveillance, the novel's sinister technology goes far beyond CCTV. Science fiction, like Oceania, can tailor technology to an arbitrary vision of reality. Even now, could a totalitarian government craft 1984 as Orwell described?
