To Orwell Today,
Dear Jackie Jura (I hope),
First of all you must excuse me for my lack of knowledge and my bad English...
I have reached this website and I have a mixture of feelings and I am also very sad to discover that many things that may "never going to happen" are already happening. You may feel that I'd rather to ignore this cruel reallity, but the thing is that if I already was "a bit" paranoid, now I can't have a minute of peace with all this things in my mind...
And please, I would like to know if there is any "positive" information about the future or if we should just kill ourselves?
PLEASE ANSWER ME! (Whenever you can).
I understand how you feel and sometimes I wish I had never read "1984" but when I start feeling that way I remember that Orwell didn't get any joy in writing it either but forced himself to do so because he was worried for the future. If he had chosen an easier route - that of enjoying his wealth and popularity he could have lived a healthier, longer and perhaps happier life. But instead, he enjoyed what he loved to the maximum - living in a natural environment - but also sacrificed some of his joy to benefit mankind - by writing "1984". In our own lives we too have to appreciate what we have and take joy from it but also work in some way toward sharing the warning we learned from Orwell. He is a writer who is known all over the world for the very fact that he wrote "1984".
All the best,
WHY ORWELL WROTE "1984"
