Along with Atlas Shrugged, 1984 is one of my “go-to” philosophical fiction books that I read to keep myself grounded when I get to feeling that the majority of people do not share my belief that we are heading in the wrong direction.
I find it telling that some of our governmental czars and their agencies sound just like some of the organizations in this document.
This book is a lot darker than atlas shrugged, the movie was not nearly as well done as the Shrugged series, but it is a lot easier to read.
Both authors have first hand experience in the birth of communism in Russia, and many of their observations are very telling.
Because of this, I feel everyone needs to read this book for themselves.
