This classic will always remain a classic. It remains a eye opener more then ever!
I felt a sense of realism while reading this book since it reminded me of the actual power of manipulators who lie openly, narcissistically, on fictitious news to engage nations in a destructive track. The reader is made aware of the subtle tools, for instance political shows, that rely on the short memory of people to make up a false reality. A reality that profits to a very small minority.
The invention of new and simplistic words reminded me of certains religiously read twits! Orwell shows how meaningless words are a sign of our inability to develop a critical mind.
History demonstrates what dangers surround democracy. This book makes the reader reflect on what happens when powerful entertainers play with the memory of people. A false sense of security so to hide long-term goals ...
Most of all we become more conscious of how the manipulation of information is a real and profound threat to the world and the environnement who sustains us.
This book should be read by people who really care about their children. I mean... not only for their material confort, but for their freedom and... their future. Because the threat imagined in George Orwell's novel may become the REALity.
