1984 was not a Prophesy...

it was a PLAN

Orwell was not a visionary. He was an INSIDER.

Absolutely, people don't know anything about Orwell, if they did, they would now his books were not a warning, he wanted the dystopia he wrote about.

He was another socialist who claimed socialism can be anything but authoritarian. Basically the lib left political compass meme before it existed. There is no lib left or auth right. Left is inherently authoritarian and right is inherently libertarian. Lib right and auth left are redundant and auth right and lib left are oxymorons.

He was an antifa Marxist who actually fought for the POUM during the Spanish Civil War, and after the war declared himself an anti-Stalinist as well (ironic/hypocritical considering he was the BBC's top propagandist during WW2).

Leftists can never understand that leftism is always about state-control of the individual, no matter the flavor. This creepy letter from Huxley to Orwell discusses the finer points of their dystopias and which is more "efficient".

Exactly, left is collectivism and right is individualism so it is always about social control which happens to be a double meaning for socialism.

Our own hospitals and doctors offices are on the way! Their hospitals are nothing more than the new killing fields!
