Did George Orwell Set The Tone For Patriotic Citizens Of The Future?

This portion from George Orwell's Classic `1984' takes the cake for psychism in Fiction

`Smith!’ screamed the shrewish voice from the telescreen ` 6079 Smith W! Yes, you! Bend lower, please! You can do better than that. You’re not trying. Lower, please! That’s better, comrade. Now stand at ease, the whole squad, and watch me’
                A sudden hot sweat had broken out all over Winston’s body. His face remained completely inscrutable. Never show dismay! Never show resentment! A single flicker of the eyes could give you away. He stood watching while the instructress raised her arms above her head and – one could say gracefully, but with remarkable neatness and efficiency – bent over and tucked the first joint of her fingers under her toes.
`There comrades! That’s how I want to see you doing it. Watch me again. I’m thirty-nine and I’ve had four children. Now look’ she bent over again ` You see my knees aren’t bent. You can all do it if you want to’ she added as she straighten…

The growth of matrimony on Internet in India is only rivaled by memes. What is pitiable is the plethora of community based matrimonial websites that are available. C’mon give me a break, people use a technological invention made by a person who doesn’t belong to their community, to keep alive their community.
