    Great post! I’ve read both books. And I think that both are accurate, in their own way. If we don’t give into our ‘infinite appetite for distraction’ then we will certainly end up realizing that Orwell’s “Captive Culture” is indeed what we have become. In short, we are captivated by distraction.
    Brilliant comparison.
