George Orwell died in 1951 and wrote 1984 in 1948. It's scary to see how his fiction based warning novel has literally eventuated after all these years.
Great book and cones with bonus Animal Farm, a political satire about corruption of power and greed.
WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
