Go 1984 (a very bad year)…

Posted: June 11, 2013 in Books, Current events

Orwell’s old novel, “1984,” climbing the charts again, at least on Amazon. Fortunately i already have a copy and plan to read it again soon. I mean, after all we are getting close to that time. By the way, this novel was not based on Stalin’s government  as is commonly perceived (that would be too easy) but on Britain’s fascistic Labour Party. It didn’t take much to extrapolate where that system was going. Also, the novel’s invented Newspeak  and government structure have their chilling equivalent today in government-directed/approved political correctness and mass internal spying (just read the headlines).
