a world where people fear that their opinion cannot be expressed
freely, where leaders are not held accountable for their deceptions,
where perpetual war is waged against an unseen enemy; a world where
Ignorance is Strength, Freedom is Slavery, and War is Peace. This is
the world George Orwell created more than half a century ago and its
prescience of today’s world is stunning.
