Maybe the Most Orwellian Text Message a Government’s Ever Sent | Motherboard

Standard

“Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance.”

That\’s a text message that thousands of Ukrainian protesters spontaneously received on their cell phones today, as a new law prohibiting public demonstrations went into effect. It was the regime\’s police force, sending protesters the perfectly dystopian text message to accompany the newly minted, perfectly dystopian legislation. In fact, it\’s downright Orwellian (and I hate that adjective, and only use it when absolutely necessary, I swear).
