George Orwell wrote in his dystopian novel 1984 that with the use of technology, the entire society is under the surveillance and scrutiny of the government. Orwell wrote, “Big Brother is Watching You.” In other words, the citizens are not given the freedom to do as they please and can be potentially subjected to dire consequences if their actions are seen and not approved by the government.
