How will our actual world differ from Orwell’s fictitious world when you aren’t permitted (hideous word; how did America get to that point?) to go outside without a Face Diaper occluding your individuality and visually confirming you as a member of the frightened, obedient herd?
Your face will be indistinguishable from other faces. No one will know whether you’re smiling or frowning.
Most of all, no one will know you oppose what’s been imposed, since you’ve been forced to submit to it. Since everyone has been forced to submit to it.
Universal Diapering will eliminate any visual evidence of dissent, making dissent itself seem abnormal.
Everywhere you go, the impression of consent, which implies the legitimacy (the reasonableness) of the thing itself.
That it has been imposed without consent is irrelevant.
