1984

Paradise - - Living -

By Ge­orge Or­well (Text Pub­lish­ing)

A novel that is per­haps more rel­e­vant today than we would wish turned 70 years old in July. This dystopian clas­sic was first pub­lished in 1949.

In it, Or­well imag­ined a world di­vided in three su­per­pow­ers. What used to be Bri­tain is now part of Eura­sia and is ruled by the to­tal­i­tar­ian fig­ure of Big Brother. Pro­pa­ganda shapes peo­ple’s minds and the truth is shaped in any way and form that the gov­ern­ment wishes. In today’s po­lit­i­cal land­scape, where au­thor­i­tar­i­an­ism and fake news run ram­pant, 1984 is an ur­gent read, a timely warn­ing of the dark days that could lay ahead for democ­ra­cies world­wide.
