A Brief Comment on Political STYle

George Orwell

26 August 1946 – George Orwell publishes “Animal Farm.” With America in the throes of a Tea Party revolution, it might be a good idea to re-read Orwell’s ever-timely book, just to reacquaint ourselves with the consequences of failing to maintain a skeptical, deeply critical attitude toward all political factions, particularly those supporting candidates who are either authoritarian theocrats, ideological extremists, or corporate tools. To employ Orwell’s idiom – we need to keep a close eye on the pigs, especially those swine who obviously believe that “All people are equal, but some people are more equal than others.”
