1984

This novel was written in 1949, however the given circumstances of the story is today's world. In the story everyone is under watch and be tightly-controlled both physically and mentally, and freedom of thought is not guaranteed. Under such circumstance, brain-freeze is only one technique to live in easily and safety. I think that's exactly today's world! And the author must have written the story as a warning against today's society.
