I am a big fan of speculative fiction and in my literary travels I have encountered a myriad of dystopias anti utopias and places and societies that make one want to scream and with or without contemporaneous loss of bladder and other bodily functionsSimply put George Orwell's 1984 is unuestionably the most memorable and MOST DISTURBING vision of a world gone mad utterly bat shit psycho that I have ever experienced Ever Despite being published back in 1948 I have yet to find a chilling nightmarish locale than Orwell's iconic world of BIG BROTHER and INGSOC The very mention of either of those terms invokes images of Nazis and Soviet gulags in my mind Yet Orwell's creation is in many ways even insidious than these real world bogeymenI first read this book when I was 12 years old in 7th grade as aget thisclass reading assignment Looking back on it I have NO IDEA why on Earth we were reading this book at that age but I do recall we spent uite a bit of time discussing it I wish I could recall the substance of those discussions because I can only imagine the kind of PIERCING INSIGHT that a group of hormonally challenged pre teens thought up in regards to this book Needless to say I think that this is a book that is best appreciated AFTER your first pimple Anyway I decided to re read this book recently as an adult in the hopes that I would be able to gain a great appreciation for this classic Well the book did than that IT ABSOLUTELY FLOORED ME From the very first sentence It was a bright cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen to the unforgettable final sentence which I will not give away here this story sucked me in beat the living shit out of me and through me out the other side a hollow wasted wreck I know it doesn't sound very cheery but it is a life changing experience I have always thought that one of the best and most important ualities of science fiction is that it frees the author to take the controversial politically charged issues and trends of the day and create a possible future based on exaggerations of such trends and in so doing present a compelling and critical argument for change Well NO ONE has ever done a better job than better Orwell in showing the possible nightmare and thus potential danger of a society without basic civil liberties and a government with complete and unchallenged control This book is bleak dreary frightening upsetting and absolutely BRILLIANT and one of my All Time Favorite novels HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION 60 starsREMEMBER BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU

SUMMARY º MBJUK.CO.UK ´ George Orwell

He pyramid that is the Party at the head of which stands Big Brother Big Brother the infallible Big Brother the all powerful In a totalitarian society where individuality is suppressed and freedom of thought has. 1984 is not a particularly good novel but it is a very good essay On the novel front the characters are bland and you only care about them because of the awful things they live through As a novel all the political exposition is heavyhanded and the message completely overrides any sense of storytelling As an essay the points it makes can be earthshaking It seems everyone who has so much as gotten a parking ticket thinks he lives in a 1984 dystopia Every administration that reaches for power injures civil liberties or collaborates too much with media is accused of playing Big Brother These are the successes of 1984's paranoia far outliving its original intent as a battery against where Communism was going Orwell was a severely disappointed Marxist and while people who compare their leaders to Big Brother are usually overreaching themselves and speak far away from Orwell's intent and vision it is a useful catchcloth for dissent Like so many immortalized books with a social vision 1984's actual substance is so thin that its ideologies and fear mongering aspects can be stretched and skewed to suit the readers If you'd like a better sense of the real world and Orwell's intents rather than third hand interpretations of his fiction then his Homage to Catalonia is highly recommended

This book is far from perfect Its characters lack depth its rhetoric is sometimes didactic its plot well half of it anyway was lifted from Zumyatin’s We and the lengthy Goldstein treatise shoved into the middle is a flaw which alters the structure of the novel like a scar disfigures a faceBut in the long run all that does not matter because George Orwell got it rightOrwell a socialist who fought against Franco watched appalled as the great Soviet experiment was reduced to a totalitarian state a repressive force eual in evil to Fascist Italy or Nazi Germany He came to realize that ideology in an authoritarian state is nothing but a distraction a shiny thing made for the public to stare at He came to realize that the point of control was control the point of torture was torture that the point of all their alternative facts was to fashion a world where people would no longer possess even a word for truth If you want a picture of the future imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever Orwell’s vision of the world is grim; too grim some would argue for it may deprive the faint hearted among us of hope But Orwell never wanted to take away hope No he wished to shock our hearts into resistance by showing us the authoritarian nightmare achieved a monument of stasis a tribute to surveillance and controlHere in the USA in 2017 our would be totalitarians are a long way from stasis Right now they’re stirring up chaos and confusion spreading lies and then denying they spread them hoping to gaslight us into a muddle of helplessness and inactivity They are trying to destroy a vigorous democracy and they know it will take much chaos and confusion to bring that democracy down They hate us most when we march together when we occupy senate offices and jam the congressional switchboard when we congregate in pubs and coffee houses and share our outrage and fear for they know that freedom thrives on solidarity and resistance and that solidarity and resistance engender love and hope They much prefer it when we brood in solitude despairing and aloneWhich reminds meone of the things we should never do is brood about the enemy’s ideology Is Steve Bannon a Fascist A Nazi A Stalinist for while we try to discern his “ideological goals” the enemy is busy pulling on his boots and his boots are made with hobnails with heel irons and euipped with toecaps of steelFinally it does not matter who heads up the authoritarian state a bully boy like Mussolini a strutting coprophiliac like Hitler a Napoleonic pig like Stalin or a brainless dancing bear like Trump Whatever the current incarnation of “Big Brother” may be the goal is always the same A nation of warriors and fanatics marching forward in perfect unity all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans perpetually working fighting triumphing persecuting three hundred million people all with the same face
