“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”

George Orwell at his typewriter.

Happy birthday to the very wonderful and profound George Orwell whose words are still as relevant today as they ever were.

“Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
