Of Interest

Open Culture reports that George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984, first published in 1949, is now the number one bestselling book on Amazon. If you haven't read 1984 lately, here's a quote from the book to contemplate:
And when memory failed and written records were falsified--when that happened, the claim of the Party to have improved the conditions of human life had got to be accepted, because there did not exist, and never again could exist, any standard against which it could be tested.  [Book I, Chapter VIII]
