Trump Vs 1984

Oh, how we should have seen it coming! The fascist state in George Orwel’s 1984 must have been read cover to cover by President Trump. The all controlling government in the book created a propogandist language known as ‘Newspeak’, which could be equated to what I call, Trump-Twitters! Its slogans ‘War is Peace’, ‘Freedom is Slavery’ and ‘Ignorance is Strength’, fit so ably into his psyche. Not only that, I’m sure, had Covid existed then as now, Big Brother would also have encouraged mass gatherings set to oust the opponents of their day. Role on the 20th January… and let’s have rid of Trump, before someone writes a book entitled 2021!
