Thankfully, 1984 has not as yet become a reality,but I am sure some of his predictions did come true, particularly the one regarding making language more restricted and abbreviated. Don't you find Newspeak almost similar to SMS lingo, though, may be the reason for its use is not as orthodox as proposed by Orwell.

Many of these totalitarian regimes also used children to spy and report on their parents & neighbours & children are regularly used as a means of controlling & keeping in line parents.
