Here’s a quotation from the hero (among heroes!) of last Friday’s blog post. There’s a lot to chew on here.

“Political language – and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists – is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”

—George Orwell, “Politics and the English Language,” 1946

That’s all for today. I’m busy working on final details for the e-resource I’ll be releasing soon. It’s called 10 Steps for How to Stop Procrastinating and Write That Book! (or Article, Story, Essay, Blog, Poem . . .).

Despite the shortness of this blog post, there’s enough fodder in that one little quote for hours and hours of thought. I’m finding myself drawing endless parallels between this Orwell quote and what Yuval Noah Harari calls imagined orders. . . . Enjoy!
