Good Day World!
It's no wonder that George Orwell's book about a dystopian future has shot to the top of Best Sellers on Amazon.
Orwell's warning about what could happen to a society when a dictator takes over has resonated thousands of times since it was published in 1949.
Right now Orwell sounds like Nostradamus.
Trump's alternative facts and outright lies have sent sales of the classic book through the roof.
Instead of Winston Smith, a drone working in the so-called Ministry of Truth, rewriting and distorting history, Trump has Sean Spicer.
But unlike Smith, Spicer isn't someone with a conscience trying to remain human under a fascist regime.
Trump is busy attacking the media that he plans to control someday. His desire to be Big Brother is deeply rooted in his lust for power.
He wants everyone to love and obey him. Those who do not will become victims of The Party.
Reality is Trump's enemy. And now he has four years to try to fully implement a regime that will keep him on as permanent
In the end of the book Winston finally loses his battle to be human and agrees 2+2=5 if Big Brother says it so. He's fully brainwashed, just like Spicer and other the other puppets Trump has installed in our government.
Meanwhile Spicer doesn't seem to have any moral qualms about spewing his master's lies and distortions. The mainstream media is now at the front line of freedom, facing a fascist regime that seeks to crush it.
Once Trump convinces everyone that only his tweets are the truth, it will be 1984.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
