Plume 1984

War is Peace.
Freedom is Slavery.
Ignorance is Strength.

Big brother is watching. Always watching. And always alert for the first sign of thoughtcrime.

George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984 looks at the world once it's been divided into three superstates that wage a perpetual war; even though the enemy and allies may change, the war continues. A resident of Oceania, protagonist Winston Smith works revising history to remove references to vaporized "unpersons" as well as any indicator that Big Brother has ever been wrong, or that Oceania may have ever been fighting against someone else.

A tale of what occurs when freedom isn't even a concept, when 2+2=5 when the authority says so, and of unquestioning belief valued above knowledge, 1984 provides a reminder of the value of freedom and of the ability to act in accordance with human nature. 294 pages, softcover, with afterward by Erich Fromm.
