Orwell was an optimist.

This clip from a movie version

of George Orwell’s 1984, 

hauntingly portrays the world

in which we clearly now live. 

Except for the date,

George Orwell saw the future (our present)

with amazing clarity

( as those who read often do. )

My first thought was

to bring all of this week’s stories together

that illustrate the theme of his book, 1984,

but there were so many,

it would have made this editorial section

larger than FACEBOOK, itself.

So, let’s keep it short and simple:

Orwell was an optimist.
