Question Big Sister?

Have you read 1984? Good. Now, question...

At times, I`ve heard people refer to me as "Big Sister". Not specifically on this forum, nor even specifically on the internet. Given, that my physical volume is modest past the point of being bashful and well into chaste, I don`t think that reference implies anything about my size.

However, in the "Big Brother" sense from 1984 novel... More like it.

What do you think?

Per your honest opinion, could I possibly satisfy the role of "Big Sister" in entirely Orwellian sense?


P.S. Poll is anonymous, and I give my word of honor, that I will not make any steps to determine, who voted what.

This is a psychological experiment for me, and I`m interested in results to understand myself better, not to find out, who likes me, and who - don`t.

Any opinions will be accepted with gratitude - whichever they might be.

Cool Re: Big Sister?

I would have to say no on the following basis:

You do not employ a "Thought Police". You don't care who folks associate or sleep with. Although you do feel the sense that everyone should worship you, being a satanist, you won't persecute folks who don't, per ce. You don't constantly watch over everyone, by whatever technological or military means, to make sure they live up to your standards. You expect intelligence in those you associate with instead of blind obedience and you value self-education above uninformed faith. You are a seeker of truth; you don't try to bury it.

In fact, I think you're just the opposite. But, that's just my opinion formed on what little I know of you and/or have observed of your behavior.

Maybe.

But could I not be a, I dunno, a part of Illuminati, for example - using my intellect and ability to find the truths to further my own understanding of the order which the world should be in?

Talking Re: Big Sister?

The "Illuminati" as I understand it is a group of men running the world in the shadows for ultimate gain ... sorta like the Bush family and their Saudi cohorts. No, you can be abrasive at times but I wouldn't stick you with that moniker. Besides, you're too much of a lone gunman to be part of such a group. Again, being a satanist, it's all about YOU. By definition you don't play well or share well with others.

Again, just my take on things. I could be completely off base, here.

TBH I last read 1984 when I was 10? 11? So I don't recall much, and I don't think I really properly "got" it, and I don't associate the "Big Brother" phrase with much more than the cultural construct, if you will (eg expressions like "Big Brother is watching you" etc).

I would not define you as a big sister type character. On the other hand i have no qualms whit calling you nosy and somewhat of an "besserwisser"

But that is just based of what i have read in the forums of you postings.
