1. Those of us who read, and who were thrilled by Orwell’s “1984,” seeing it as a validation of what America, and Western Civilization has succumbed to, are to be punished. We saw the prescience of Orwell in the debilitation that Democrats brought to America, and could point out all of its facets and the result of their successes.

But Orwell will get the real punishment.
And now it appears that our hero will get the punishment he ‘deserves’ for revealing what has happened. A new “1984” will be created, one that shows the error of our ways, and the far better outcomes from collaboration with the Wehrmacht….er, totalitarians.



“Feminist retelling of Nineteen Eighty-Four approved by Orwell’s estate

American writer Sandra Newman’s novel Julia will tell the dystopian story from the perspective of Winston Smith’s lover


The estate of George Orwell has approved a feminist retelling of Nineteen Eighty-Four, which reimagines the story from the perspective of Winston Smith’s lover Julia.

In Julia by Sandra Newman, the incidents of Nineteen Eighty-Four are seen through the woman’s eyes. “It was the man from Records who began it, him all unknowing in his prim, grim way, his above-it-all oldthink way. He was the one Syme called ‘Old Misery’,” writes Newman. “Comrade Smith was his right name, though ‘Comrade’ never suited him somehow. Of course, if you felt foolish calling someone ‘Comrade’, far better not to speak to them at all.”

Publisher Granta said that Julia understands the world of Oceania “far better than Winston and is essentially happy with her life”.


And all of us will learn how wonderful it is to take the vaccinations, become transgender, obey the state, and never, never, disobey.

I decided to read Handmaids Tale because of the Hulu show. Scary.
