Freedom will be a luxury in the future. Discuss in relation to 1984 & North Korea.
Debate Rounds (2)
In accordance with George Orwell's 1984 and the world's current totalitarian state, North Korea, freedom will indeed be a luxury. Freedom to act on one's will, freedom of expression and freedom to privacy is destroyed in both totalitarian regimes; given that they both conduct mass surveillance, propaganda and develop cult of personalities in order to restrict these factors that constitute freedom. How does my opponent construct a rebuttal to suggest otherwise that freedom will not be a luxury in relation to the above ideas?
If you would have titled your topic as, "Government's role in society is going to make a radical change in the future, for the worst." We would have a debateable subject. If you want to pretend that's what it is, then we can have an actual debate. Otherwise I will gladly go on further to discuss how the state is all smoke and mirrors, and so long as the idea of freedom exists, it will live on as a right, not a luxury.
If you would, please watch this 10 minute video before we go any further so you know where I am coming from.

I don't really feel like this was a debate, nor was their any victor or loser. If you'd like to continue this, I will gladly accept a debate challenge or simply continue this in the comments.
