“E então? Está começando a ver que tipo de de mundo estamos criando? Exatamente oposto das tolas utopias hedonistas imaginadas pelos velhos reformadores. Um mundo de medo e traição e tormento, um mundo em que um pisoteia o outro, um mundo que se torna mais e não menos cruel a medida que evolui. O progresso, no nosso mundo, será o progresso da dor. As velhas civilizações diziam basear-se no amor ou na justiça. A nossa baseia no ódio.”

George Orwell - 1984

Here in Bangladesh (SONAR BANGLA), in Russia and China (Communist Utopia), in Jim Jones’s The Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, better known as “Jonestown"…and on Animal Farm!

On George Orwell’s “Manor Farm - Animal Farm - Manor Farm”, Utopia is sung by the prize boar, Old Major:

Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland,
Beasts of every land and clime,
Hearken to my joyful tidings
Of the golden future time.

Soon or late the day is coming,
Tyrant Man shall be o'erthrown,
And the fruitful fields of England
Shall be trod by beasts alone.

Rings shall vanish from our noses,
And the harness from our back,
Bit and spur shall rust forever,
Cruel whips no more shall crack.

Riches more than mind can picture,
Wheat and barley, oats and hay,
Clover, beans, and mangel-wurzels
Shall be ours upon that day.

Bright will shine the fields of England,
Purer shall its waters be,
Sweeter yet shall blow its breezes
On the day that sets us free.

For that day we all must labour,
Though we die before it break;
Cows and horses, geese and turkeys,
All must toil for freedom’s sake.

Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland,
Beasts of every land and clime,
Hearken well and spread my tidings
Of the golden future time.

I want to be Julia from 1984. Hear me out. She’s a total badass like no question about it and she is allowed to be open-minded and free in a world that is so strict and conservative. But also by the end of the book, I was convinced that she wasn’t just liberated, but a spy for Big Brother to try and find thought criminals. So I think that she had the idea that maybe everything wasn’t quite what it seemed, but she knew that her situation wasn’t going to improve so instead she managed to find a job that would allow her to be as free as possible while still being seen as a weapon for Big Brother. She gets her cake and eats it too. 

Ok probably incorrect literary analysis over thank you for listening.

Citoyen, citoyen
where is your

The gates of your community
are already tamped
reconnoitered by mercenaries

sealed in track
by the mechanism
of natural selection

vis-à-vis économie

Your blockades
are hyperbole

under the expression
of your fraternité

to keep le vrai
down & out

Before breaking through
your barriers

bloody, bold & resolute

I smacked down 
your belligerence

by taking off my red dress
& swapping it for blue

Shelter-in-place BS…

My county has a link where you can report your neighbors for not following social distancing orders. What is this?! It’s a real life 1984 novel by George Orwell. Is this like blacklisting during the Red Scare? 🤬🤬

Okay so, asides from the entire world being shut down from the Corona virus, March has actually been a pretty good month for me. The contents insurance finally came in, which meant i could replace many of my beloved books. I also received heaps of new books for my birthday, which meant that i did a lot more reading in March than I’ve been able to do in the past few months. So, without further ado, here are the books/short stories I’ve read in March, and what i rate them:

Keep reading

Where there’s narrative, it’s chilling, sharp, and engaging, but the novel is absolutely glutted with exposition. The (otherwise stunning) climactic scene is the worst culprit: more than half of it is expository text the narrative admits is unnecessary. Largely, the book is a platform for a philosophical-sociological text: as subtle as a brick, but undeniably effective. The first book is stuffed with awkward exposition, the second reaches beyond the textbook to nearly become an engaging novel, and the third is just a vicious anecdote further driving home the commentary. Underwhelming as a story, but credit where it’s due: it defined a genre and remains shockingly relevant today.

Winston birden, çağdaş yaşamın asıl özelliğinin acımasızlığı ve güvensizliği değil, yavanlığı, donukluğu ve kayıtsızlığı olduğunu fark etti.

Animal Farm, by George Orwell
That is my message to you, comrades: Rebellion! I do not know when that Rebellion will come, it might be in a week or in a hundred years, but I know, as surely as I see this straw beneath my feet, that sooner or later justice will be done. Fix your eyes on that, comrades, throughout the short remainder of your lives!
