Another worthwhile book is "A Nation of Sheep" by William J. Lederer
How knee-deep are we in this hoopla? What can we learn from Winston's & Julia's plight?
It's that we're, well, not *quite* there yet ... but the corners, once turned, aren't re-doable.
Here's what's up: "This plan, this Christofascist takeover of the US government, [that] has been in the works for decades" which you've heard about on Autostraddle has been documented by others (see C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy); a sizable chunk of Democratic voters don't even get to *go* the polls, there's been a concerted campaign of interference (see The Best Democracy Money Can Buy); Citizen United made most things all-but-impossible, period (Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right); the noise machine obscuring truths about non-Republican is quite real and well-established (Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary and Hijack Your Government); 1/5 of the global GDP is black-market economy (see McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld, where this figure comes from); the "fake news" parodied in my own Glenn Beck: Limp-Dick Detective; and uh Bush/Cheney left things a tuned-up machine (Takeover: The Return of the Imperial Presidency and the Subversion of American Democracy) to ... well. We'll see.
ALSO: I've found J.G. Ballard's Hello America: A Novel and Philip K. Dick's Radio Free Albemuth, both of which I've gotten through recently, to be apt, timely, and of-the-moment. Ditto John Shirley's A Song Called Youth trilogy, which he's revising, once again, for a *3rd* edition, which was how I first found out about this far-too-far-right Le Pen family to begin with! Stay tuned.
Some will take offense at the treatment of the native Burmese in Orwell's novel. But note that the protagonist's very sympathetic attitude toward them and appreciation of their culture is the source of some of his greatest difficulties with his colonial counterparts.
Immerse yourself in this novel to get a sense of what it might be like to make a choice that takes you far far away from everyday routines of the civilized world and, for better and for worse, experience an entirely different way of life.
