Quote: Orwell’s Warning about the News

Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?

Syme in Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

Have some time? You need to read Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Now. In no time, long food lines, eating our pets, and worse could become the norm if we don’t pay close attention to special “temporary” powers politicians are enacting “for our protection.”

Keep thinking, learning, and looking for the bigger picture. Quality of thought can only be reduced when we stop probing and questioning. Make sure your representatives know what you support and oppose in your community and your country. Some of them are making foolish, Groupthink decisions affecting the rest of us.
