This is one of the books that had the most impact on my life. It is a book that I hold dear. It is a book that I look at I find it amazing that George Orwell could predict our society today so long ago. Maybe not in an identical manner. He saw something. He had this vision of how the future would be.

It’s interesting the way the world is now, it is interesting the way the world could one day be. If you have not read this book you need to. I have learned so much from it.

“Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and re-inscribed exactly as often as was necessary.”
– George Orwell
