1984 was a story. It was just a story. You sound like an Idealist. Before you idolize dictators and their dictatorships, I suggest you educate yourself about the havocs they wreaked upon their citizens.
I believe you cherish writing, dont you Charles? Well, the price of writing your "voice" would probably get yourself and your family murdered under a dictatorship. Did you stop to consider that?
There is one former dictator that is currently in the news right now because he has returned to Haiti. Why dont you look into "Baby Doc".
I suggest you look up some of the worlds dictators, past and present, and do a thorough study of them. I dare you. Better yet, why don't you give up your U.S. citizenship, and move to a country with a dictatorship. See firsthand how well you'll fare.
Look up Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier, look up the Tonton Macoutes. Last but not least, look up Jean Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier.
