Welcome to my living essay

tree-of-life.jpg(Tree) Welcome readers, This is what you call a living document. This is an online comparison essay between Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, and 1984 by George Orwell. In this essay I will be using these two works to show what America has not learned since Orwell's time, which, in the case of my essay is how to trust, I will also use this description of our lack of learning to give a glimpse of what this means for the future. The really exciting and revolutionary aspect of this essay is how it is different. You can browse through the pages at will, and stop reading whenever you would like, reading in any order you would like, you can read more on interesting documents I have linked to, browse videos, and discuss the different parts of the paper, all without ever really leaving the essay. On this homepage you can read and see more in depth content on many of the aspects of my paper, please enjoy!

So it appears...
Skeptical Trust
Trusting Humans
