The dystopian novel was banned upon its translation and release in the former USSR due to its implicit critique of Stalinist political ideology. By contrast, in the 1970s and 1980s, several Americancounties challenged 1984 on the grounds that it might promote communist ideals. In the 21st century, Orwell’s best-known work has been revisited by a new generation of readers as the American political climate continues to create new uncertainties about governance, the distortion of facts, and social control.

Mark Cuban Bloomberg Interview: Future of Education
"Johnson: So essentially what you're making the case for is education and job training for grown ups.
 No, no. I think that won't matter.
What are you going to go back and learn to do?
Johnson: What it takes, right? Whether it's finance, whether it's software programming.
 No finance. That's the easiest thing — you just take the data have it spit out whatever you need. 
I personally think there's going to be a greater demand in 10 years for liberal arts majors
than there were for programming majors and maybe even engineering, because when the data is all being spit out for you, options are being spit out for you, you need a different perspective in order to have a different view of the data. And so having someone who is more of a freer thinker.
Cuban's forecast of the skills needed to succeed in the future echoes that of computer science and higher education experts who believe people with "soft skills," like adaptability and communication, will have the advantage in an automated workforce. Cuban highlighted English, philosophy, and foreign language majors as just some of the majors that will do well in the future job market. "

Michael Lewis, Princeton Art Major agrees with Mark Kuban/

Mark Blyth on Encouraging Technology.
