What They Don’t Want to Hear

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” -- George Orwell
“Sure I am this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.” --Winston S. Churchill

In our ceaseless struggle against the seemingly overwhelming forces of Cultural Marxism, political correctness, identity politics, and historical “presentism”, I believe we have great allies in an unlikely pair of 20th century Englishmen. Eric Blair, whose nom de plume was George Orwell, so despised totalitarianism that his pen name now applies to the mindless miseries that have been created by the demagogues of right and left.

And without Winston Churchill, we all would likely live in a very different and dystopian world, an “Orwellian” world.
