« Animal Farm »

I just read George Orwell's Animal Farm today.

Either Orwell was a fucking soothsayer or George Bush and company are reading the thing like an instruction manual. One chapter after another was like a fairy tale version of the news we hear every day. In fact there was a whole post-9/11 section. Well, you know... saying how great we are despite getting kicked in the crotch. Misinformation, lies, revisionist history. There was even a part about the 2000 election, with Napolean the pig usurping power under false pretenses.

Orwell was a fucking genius, sad to say. Everyone, watch out for your democracy.
