One of my astute readers has referred me to another quote from George Orwell’s 1984:
‘Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been re-written, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been re-named, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.’ (Book 2, Chapter V)
Just like the ancient prophets, George Orwell proclaims the truth to an indifferent, apathetic race!
1984 is not a book for cowards but as a chimpanzee, I find it illuminating and terrifying.
