Just read the book "1984" by George Orwell and now I feel depressed, why?

Because your brain picked up on how the book correlates with our present time. I quit reading the book not long after the part about the 2 minutes of hate due to how closely it relates to the way the media presents trump to the public, and the behavior of young people at just the mere mention of him, They behave just like they do in the book. needless to say I haven't touched it in 6 months but would like to finish it one day, but it's to realistic for being a fiction book.
Because it's a really depressing and confusing book. By the end, I was questioning everything in my life.
Because it seems to be the fate of our modern world due to political correctness and rampant social liberalism. Even Harvard students do not believe that the 1st Amendment is important and want to compromise it in order to accommodate political correctness. Just visit any college campus in any liberal leaning city in America and you will discover that 1984 is our inevitable future. The 1st Amendment is literally the ONLY safeguard keeping the Left from openly prosecuting people for expressing a dissenting opinion. They are already doing it via the private sector and indirectly. Soon enough they will find a way to legislate the 1st Amendment out of existence like they are the 2nd Amendment, and then we will all be imprisoned for "hate speech" or whatever they will call it.
Brave New World is a more accurate portrayal of modern Western society in my opinion.
Well I'm probably in the minority, but it's probably because the book sucked and it was depressing.
Go do something fun and forget about it...
It probably means you still have a good soul, intelligence and notice things around you.
... That book is really intense like really intense lol so can't say I blame you.
You might be depressed because you are in high school. Then again, if not, it is an incredibly dark depressing tale of Wilson the volleyball
why? because he predicted the future?
I don't know what to tell you brah.
Maybe because it's all been coming true
It is an intense book, and so much of it is relatable in all honesty. The government looks at your emails, we're in a seemingly never ending war on terror, and I've even seen Newspeak get compared to PC culture. Not the fact you shouldn't say the N word, but the fact that so many people in that culture don't want to hear differing opinions (generally anything conservative/libertarian in anyway). There's other aspects of the book that are comparable, but those are the big ones.
Probably because it was meant to be a warning, not an instruction manual.
Trump will make 1984 a reality. Those caught by trump's ministry of twitter insulting our god emperor will meet the same fate as winston.
You just got struck deep in there.
