Happy Birthday George Orwell

My favorite work of fiction is easily Orwell’s Animal Farm. I find it more relevant to what’s going on today than 1984.

For instance, we’ve become a sociopathic nation that arbitrarily remakes the law as we go to suit ourselves — and by and large the masses sit still for it. Some are blissfully ignorant. Some even cheer it on with thunderous applause (For reference, see reelections of George W Bush and Barack Obama).
