I suppose it is appropriate for Orwell's estate to approve of something so Orwellian.

The story in the original book took place a significant ways into the future at the time of writing, and was really a commentary on Fascism, not only in the USSR and Nazi Germany, but in England too.

If this typist copies the book slavishly, it will be an alternate history book about events almost 40 years ago, which are symbolic of the political situation almost 100 years ago, but with a chick as the lead character. How irrelevant can you get?

If she really wanted to be edgy, she'd call it 2084, and have it be about the modern globohomo agenda and how it parallels the excesses and evils of the leftist totalitarians in the 1930s. It would make sense to have the main character in a story like this be some kind of woke feminist, who starts to see how things really are going.

A modern woman would probably take on the role of the party propagandists, the denouncers and applaud the torturers and re-educators rather than the role of Winston.

I think the scary thing is that Winston is just a normie trying to secretly live as the world used to be , there probably are no actual rebels and active dissenters in the book / world other than the controlled opposition the party makes up.

According to the article, the author of this feminist rewrite is Sandra Newman. If you take a look at her Twitter page, it's nothing but a bunch of standard liberal boilerplate.


At least in the book, the Jewish Emmanuel Goldstein character was (supposedly) opposing the fascist totalitarian regime, not its mouthpiece.

This sounds like they are openly stating that the color of one's skin means they are inferior in something. Why isn't this point of view racist?

I posit the following as merely a hypothetical scenario.
Hence why I'm posting it in the Clown World thread & not a straightforward political thread.

1.

Possibility Of Biden Resigning...​

The possibility of Biden resigning by 15th December now being talked up behind closed doors. With Harris refusing the top job and house speaker saying no.
This starts a constitutional crisis, perhaps one that the military can legitimately step into to 'save the Republic'


2.

On Monday, Trump said the virus has beaten Biden "badly" and pointed to the fact that more people have died of COVID-19 in 2021 than they did in 2020, despite the introduction of vaccines.

"He said anybody with his results should leave office. Well, Joe, what are you waiting for!" Trump said.


*Emphasis added.


Oh lordy.
Can you imagine the REEEsteria that would ensue if new Presidential elections were to take place in the U.S. next year & Trump ran...?
Not Trump winning the election as such.
Just the mere idea of Trump running alone would send so, so many into REEEsterics...

It would be levels of "Clown World don't quit" previously unheard of... :sneaky:

Why would Biden resign? His handlers want him to be inept. And why would Harris refuse the presidency if Biden dies/ gets killed?

Here is the order of succession, there will not be a presidential election next year. If all of these people resign or are killed then we go down the list

Why so serious?
The reason isn't what's important.
It's the idea of Trump returning early & how folk would react when they thought they were done with him.
