This year marks the 70th anniversary of George Orwell’s novel, 1984.
Numerous scholars, historians and journalists note that many of the literary components of 1984 (setting, plot, theme, characters, etc.) mirror life in 2019.
This is a novel that spotlights the evil of governments that allow their citizens no freedom of individual thought. It includes an intricate plot, unusual characters and a theme that guarantees its readers an understanding that fake news, double speak and the erosion of freedom of speech are not new phenomenons.
