"OK Computer" and "1984" Comparison  SEP 20 2001

"OK Computer" and "1984" Comparison Thesis: "The whole of [Karma Police] could be a conversation describing the turning-in of a citizen by a spy to the Thought Police for behavior that is a little out of the ordinary. i.e. The first two phrases are the spy speaking. Then an agent of the Thought Police speaks 'This is what you get when you mess with us...'. The victim is tortured when passivity is forced into them and cries out 'I've given all I can it's not enough'. The T.P speak again, then the victim is 'cured' and says 'Phew, for a minute there I lost myself'".
