And the people under the sky were also very much the same – everywhere, all over the world, hundreds of thousands of millions of people just like this, people ignorant of one another’s existence, held apart by the walls of hatred and lies, and yet almost exactly the same – people who had never learned to think, but were storing up in their hearts and bellies and and muscles the power that would one day overturn the world.” — George Orwell, 1984
