All you DU youngsters...


....really ought to go buy a used copy of George Orwell's 1984, if you haven't already read it. Or, if you prefer, you can read it online.

It REALLY is a must read for these days and times.

Anyone agree with me??

Please, read it. It's not that long.

1. I agree with you....
and I have a copy. I've read it at least half a dozen times.
Very scary given today's events. When I first read it, around 1986,
I thought of the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany...never would I have
thought that it would apply to the US in the 21st Century...

I want my country back...now!

2. It's a read for all
days and times. It sheds light on what's happening now, and in better times, it serves as a warning of what can happen when people surrender their voice.

I've read it twice, once in 9th grade, the other time in 12th. Made a lot more sense to me the second time lol.
