I'm not into politics, but recently I made myself read a novel named "Nineteen Eighty-Four", I think it's worth my time reading it. No doubt, it's a classic novel.

But I found it a bit too profound for me to understand the true essence of it.

Have you ever read it?

How do you understand this slogan?

      WAR IS PEACE
      FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
      IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH


    "2 + 2 = 5 "

I'd like to hear your input.

1984 is a political satire mocking Totalitarianism..

You're right! The author got really talented language power.

I've read the other novel of his: Animal Farm which is easier to read and can be seen as another political satire mocking Totalitarianism.
