A few thoughts from George Orwell...
“Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
“So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know that fire is hot.”
“Liberal: a power worshipper without power.”
“Progress is not an illusion, it happens, but it is slow and invariably disappointing.”
“To survive it is often necessary to fight and to fight you have to dirty yourself.”
