That Orwell committed every intellectual crime he complained about in Nineteen Eighty-Four is not something anyone wants to talk about.

This doesn’t mean I didn’t learn anything from 1984 or that I disagree with his observations. Unfortunately, human beings are expected to practice what they preach, and clearly Orwell has shown that this is not the case for somebody like himself.
George Orwell’s mentality is equivalent to that which enjoys breaking a person’s legs to make them walk faster, in my opinion.
