Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life—the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language—and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.
we are proles
proles and cattles are free
this is the accurate description of what is happening in North Korea and my parents always told me 'you should be glad you are not born in North Korea' but am i living in a different place than North Korea?
we use so many shortened words
we are oblivion to what is happening around us
we are living in a more complex world, much more complex than what George Orwell created in this book.
