Orwell is saying “I told you so.” In a world of half-truths, deceit and lies, speaking the truth is an act of rebellion.
Hearing unpleasant and even ugly truths is never pleasant. But hearing the truth is the first step to correcting what’s wrong. And there’s far too much that’s wrong in our nation and our world.
I want to be a part of the revolution that stands for justice. I want to be with those standing with the poor and hungry. If that is lunacy, so be it. I think I can see Jesus in the midst of us.
