It’s Orwell Week (#3 of 3)
George Orwell was a pen name for Eric Arthur Blair (1903–1950), an English novelist, essayist, journalist, and critic best known for the novella Animal Farm (1945), and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).
Obviously, the term “Orwellian” – descriptive of totalitarian or authoritarian social practices – refers to his writing. He himself coined “Big Brother”, “Thought Police”, “newspeak”, and “thoughtcrime” — terms we still use today …because we still need them.
