“Orwellian Update: Only 20 Pages Into the Book

Orwellian Update

I’m about 20 pages into 1984 after four months of attempting to read the book. Every time I try to read it, I keep thinking it’s an actual news report about our current government. Then I realize the US media is busy trying to make #Drumpf look normal.
That’s when I realize the nightmare hasn’t ended, and I close the book.

The 13th Hour Has Arrived 

The 13th Hour Has Arrived

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. G. Orwell, 1984

America, the country of my birth and life since 1968, died on January 20, 2017. All of the history lessons about The Constitution, the fight for equal rights under the law, and our reputation as a powerful world leader, disappeared when T***p was inaugurated.

I started reading George Orwell’s 1984 last weekend. It wasn’t on our reading list in high school. As an English major at Rutgers, I focused on British Literature. However, after this election and his first few days in office, I knew it was time.

All it took was the first few pages to see America’s future under T***p’s administration. Basically…WE ARE SCREWED! Our only hope is mass organized resistance. We have to resist every attempt to tear apart our Constitution and democratic government. We need to resist the racism and bigotry promoted by this administration.

The quote above, the slogan of Orwell’s fictional political party, is located on the Ministry of Truth’s building. No explanation needed.

I suggest you grab a copy or download the digital version. We need to be prepared. Stay strong!

Obama Day: More Resistance I am sharing pictures of resistance…

Obama Day: More Resistance

I am sharing pictures of resistance to tell the rest of the world that don’t support this administration. I want the rest of the world to know that:

  • We do not want an illegitimate president;
  • We elected Hillary Rodham Clinton by majority popular vote;
  • We believe that our election was stolen;
  • We do not support hate in any form.

Share the pictures of the resistance that our mainstream media chooses not to share.
