1984 by George Orwell: Crash Course Literature 401
« on: December 13, 2019, 09:12:42 pm »

Agelbert NOTE: This prophetic book has become an instruction manual that modern Fascist Oligarchs are using to bring dystopian tyranny to humanity.

For your own good, and that of your loved ones, it behooves you to understand what the message, not just in general, but in detail, this book has for everyone that wants to prevent said dystopian tyranny.

In which John Green returns for a dystopian new season of Crash Course Literature! We're starting with George Orwell's classic look at the totalitarian state that could be in post-war England. Winston Smith is under the eye of Big Brother, and making us think about surveillance, the role of government, and how language can play a huge part in repressive regimes.

Agelbert RANT: So, the Fascists ☠️ won in "jolly old England", eh?


Well, it looks like that movie we all watched several decades ago (made from the "fictional" dystopia that Orwell portrayed in his book "1984") was quite prophetic. The year in the title was 36 years early, but there is no need to quibble over details.

Here's the trailer from the 2008 remake:

It was supposed to be a novel, not a manual
