El pasado 5 de noviembre nos reunimos en nuestro canal de Twitch para hablar de distopías. La excusa era perfecta por la fecha que queda marcada en la película, en el cómic y en la historia de Guy Fawkes y V de Vendetta, una historia que reúne muchas de las características clásicas de este tipo de historias. Hablamos de V, pero también de otras muchas películas, novelas y cómics mientras analizamos estas características del género. No faltará los precursores como Jack London o H.G. Wells, los clásicos como Huxley, Orwell o Bradbury, los nuevos clásicos de la segunda parte del Siglo XX como Philip K. Dick o Margaret Atwood y algunas obras más actuales que reflejan los nuevos tiempos. Esperamos que os guste esta tertulia abierta y os de muchas ideas para revisitar estas historias fundamentales.

In a special episode of Diplomates, the roles have been reversed as our host, Misha Zelinsky takes the hot seat! Legendary Australian journalist and geopolitical analyst, Peter Hartcher of the Sydney Morning Herald interviews Misha Zelinsky about his new book: The Sun Will Rise. The Sun Will Rise is inspired by true events and dedicated to the brave heroes of Ukraine. It is based on Misha's reporting from inside Ukraine, real events from the war as well as the complex history between Russia and Ukraine. Misha and Peter discuss: — Misha's experiences in Ukraine covering the war for the Australian Financial Review. — Why the invasion of Ukraine is a hinge moment of history. — How democracies must respond to Putin's invasion and why other Dictators are watching closely. — The use of fiction over facts. — The inspiration behind the story and characters. — What happens next in the war. Get your copy now: www.thesunwillrisebook.com ABOUT THE SUN WILL RISE: Oksana Shevchenko remembers life as it once was. Before the War. Before the Invaders stripped her freedom away. Before the Motherland decided to take what wasn't hers, and call it her own. As the leader of the local Union, thirty-one-year-old Oksana has met her match in enemy officer Lieutenant General Mikhailovich, who will stop at nothing to win glory for the Motherland – and himself. After he captures the city of Heryvin, the young, ambitious Mikhailovich forces Oksana and her Union comrades to operate the local nuclear power plant for the Motherland's gain, while sapping its capacity to operate safely. It's a nightmare for a city still reeling from the disastrous Accident that took the lives of dozens – including Oksana's father – decades before. Caught between her loyalty to those resisting the Occupation and a nuclear catastrophe threatened by increasingly impossible orders, Oksana must find a way to defeat Mikhailovich before his sadistic determination leads him to doing the unthinkable. But Oksana might not be alone in her fight, because war makes heroes out of the ordinary and unlikely. A grandmother defiantly waving the colour of her nation. A principal offering a safe haven for students dreaming of brighter futures. A young adult choosing courage in the face of mortal danger. A country quietly showing that glory belongs to those who dare to hold on against impossible odds. Because one day soon, the sun will set on dictators. And the sun will rise on freedom once again. Inspired by true events in Ukraine, The Sun Will Rise is a tribute to those bravely fighting for their freedom – and ours. PRAISE FOR THE SUN WILL RISE: Stirring, brilliant, soulful. An Orwellian tale, evoking the very essence of Ukraine's fight for freedom and our right to exist” — Kira Rudyk, leading Ukrainian Member of Parliament. “A love letter to the human spirit, Zelinsky's deeply personal coverage of Russia's invasion comes to life in this stunning first novel. An affecting story about the humanity behind the news” — Wayne Swan, President of the Australian Labor Party, former deputy prime minister and world finance minister of the year. “Zelinsky's outstanding journalism transported Russian brutality and Ukrainian bravery from the battlefront to our homes. Now, this story gives us a reason to hope” — Ambassador, Vasyl Myroshnychenko, Ukraine's Ambassador to Australia. “Misha Zelinsky has penned a gripping book which although fictional, depicts the courage, strength and conviction of the Ukrainian people fighting for their freedom and sovereignty. Once you pick up The Sun Will Rise, you will not be able to put it down. It is an exciting read. — Ambassador Paula J. Dobriansky, former Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs (2001-2009) “A gripping page-turner, set in Ukraine in the wake of Russia's invasion. Misha Zelinsky has captured the bravery and humanity of Ukrainians living under occupation, as well as the callousness and cynicism of Vladimir Putin's soldiers. Original, compelling, and topical, The Sun Will Rise is an impressive novel which brings to life recent history.” — Luke Harding, award-winning foreign correspondent with the Guardian and New York Times best selling author of books including Invasion: Russia's Bloody War and Ukraine's Fight for Survival, shortlisted for the Orwell prize. “Zelinsky has turned his superb war reportage into a riveting first novel, inspired by real people and events, but transcending them to convey the heart behind the conflict. If you want to know why Ukrainians fight and why it's our fight too, this is the place to start. Reminiscent of Disraeli—a novelist turned British statesman—a writer with such soul, who knows what makes people and countries great, would be a rare addition to our public life. — The Hon. Tony Abbott, 28th prime minister of Australia.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The word “totalitarianism” describes a political system in which the state has total authority over every aspect of life. In regimes of this kind, external conformity is just the first step—what they really want is your soul. According to Rod Dreher, we're now seeing the rise of a new “soft totalitarianism” which is closer to Huxley's Brave New World, than Orwell's 1984. In soft totalitarianism, conformity is achieved by manipulating access to things like status and comfort, often by means of a social credit system. On this program, Shane Rosenthal talks with Rod Dreher about these and other disturbing trends that he outlines in his bestselling book, Live Not By Lies, which also happens to be the subject of a forthcoming documentary series.SHOW NOTESResources by Rod DreherLive Not By Lies (book)The Axis of the Human Heart (essay)Exclude the Excluders!

1/4: The Socialist Patriot: George Orwell and War by Peter Stansky (Author) https://www.amazon.com/Socialist-Patriot-George-Orwell-War/dp/150363549X An incisive demonstration of how Orwell's body of work was defined by the four major conflicts that punctuated his life: World War I, the Spanish Civil War, World War II, and the Cold War. Few English writers wielded a pen so sharply as George Orwell, the quintessential political writer of the twentieth century. His literary output at once responded to and sought to influence the tumultuous times in which he lived—decades during which Europe and eventually the entire world would be torn apart by war, while ideologies like fascism, socialism, and communism changed the stakes of global politics. 1936 Spain

¿Estamos yendo hacia una sociedad Orwelliana? En este episodio, debatiremos sobre la vigencia y relevancia de la obra de George Orwell, 1984, en el contexto actual. ¿Qué es una sociedad orwelliana y cómo se caracteriza? ¿Qué elementos de nuestra realidad actual se asemejan o difieren de la visión distópica de Orwell? ¿Qué riesgos y desafíos plantea el avance de la tecnología, la globalización y la política para la libertad y la democracia? ¿Qué podemos hacer como ciudadanos para evitar caer en una sociedad orwelliana? La Identidad Digital Europea es una iniciativa de la Unión Europea que tiene como objetivo facilitar el acceso y la utilización de servicios en línea dentro del mercado único, tanto públicos como privados, mediante una identificación y una autenticación electrónicas seguras y fiables Según la propuesta de la Comisión Europea, los Estados miembros ofrecerán a los ciudadanos y las empresas unas carteras digitales que podrán vincular sus identidades digitales nacionales con otros certificados personales, como el carnet de conducir, las titulaciones o la cuenta bancaria. Estas carteras digitales permitirán a los usuarios identificarse y compartir documentos electrónicos desde su teléfono móvil, sin tener que utilizar métodos de identificación privados ni compartir innecesariamente datos personales. Contaremos con la participación Adrian, Dekkar, y mas compañeros, donde también tendremos a un invitado, nuestro amigo y oyente Hector Sanchez Abogado de profesión el cual nos ayudara con las normativas de la Identidad Digital Europea. No te pierdas este apasionante debate ¿Estamos yendo hacia una sociedad Orwelliana? La Identidad Digital Europea plantea algunos desafíos y riesgos para la libertad y la privacidad de los usuarios. Por ejemplo, se podría cuestionar la seguridad y la fiabilidad de las carteras digitales, que podrían ser vulnerables a ataques cibernéticos o a fallos técnicos. También se podría plantear la cuestión de la transparencia y la rendición de cuentas de los prestadores de servicios que acepten la Identidad Digital Europea, así como de las autoridades competentes que supervisen su funcionamiento. Asimismo, se podría debatir sobre el equilibrio entre la comodidad y la protección de los datos, y sobre el posible efecto de la Identidad Digital Europea en la diversidad y la competencia del mercado de la identidad digital.

What does this 1984 adaptation of the 1949 George Orwell novel tell us about the totalitarian tendency in human history? How does it adumbrate upon the surveillance state as exemplified in Stalinist Russia? What role does emerging technology of the day play in Orwell's vision? How does the film do as a portrait of the subjective experience of this state, as lived by the protagonists, Winston, Julia and others? How does the film portray the efforts of Oceania to control information and change or erase objective records, and what is the purpose of the ‘Ministry of Truth'? How does this effort reflect philosophical ‘idealists'? How do current efforts to change classic works of literature bear similarity to these practices? How does the state of Oceania contrast itself with what, from their point of view, were earlier totalitarian states, such as Communist Russia? Does it believe it's bringing about a utopian vision? What parallels exist between the regular ‘two-minute hates' aimed at Goldstein and anti-Antisemitism in the modern world? How does Oceania attempt to eradicate all normal human attachments and the need for privacy? Does it succeed?
George Orwell – the author of classics like 1984 – is a household name. But have you heard of his first wife, Eileen O'Shaughnessy, who convinced her husband to write the political fable which evolved into Animal Farm? Despite being vital in Orwell's career, she has been omitted from the historical narrative by both her husband and his biographers since. Speaking to Lauren Good, Anna Funder reveals O'Shaughnessy's hidden life – and considers how women through the past have facilitated the success of their husbands from the shadows. (Ad) Anna Funder is the author of Wifedom: Mrs Orwell's Invisible Life (Viking, 2023).

November marks the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. In 1989, this symbol of Communist tyranny came tumbling down, marking the end of a totalitarian nightmare. After the threat of Nazism was defeated, Communism turned a third of the world into a police state the likes of which had never been seen. Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II recognized, in a clear-eyed way not shared by many other academic and political elites, that Marxism's blood-red banners meant not liberation but oppression. More than this, they saw that Communism was not only something that should be opposed, but that could be. Their collective strategies worked even faster than the most optimistic expected. As that deadly edifice of Communism tumbled down, its fractured walls meant a no-longer-divided Berlin, no more Stasi, no more secret arrests. In the joy of that moment and the collapse of the Soviet Union two years later, famed political scientist Francis Fukuyama declared the “End of History.” He believed that the death of Communism was the final obstacle to the triumph of Enlightenment liberalism and democracy. He was, of course, mistaken. Though we may not be living in Orwell's 1984 or Huxley's Brave New World, the abdication of freedom and the embrace of history's worst ideals continues, and not just in China, Russia, and Iran. In England, silently praying in front of an abortion clinic can get a person arrested. According to a Pew Research report, a majority of young Americans prefer freedom from offense over freedom of speech. In pro-Hamas parades across the West, thousands have proclaimed that violence, oppression, and censorship are acceptable if the “right” groups are being harmed, oppressed, and silenced. The ideals of diversity and dissent have been reduced to slogans to signal our virtue, not realities to live out in practice. As a result, more and more power is granted to state, academic, corporate, and media authorities to “rescue us” from “dangerous” ideas, ironically in the name of diversity and inclusion. Those people who are tearing down the posters of kidnapped Israeli kids are not replacing them with other images. They are just denying a space to speak. The younger, leftist crowd increasingly thinks of core freedoms, such as the freedom of speech, as questionable at best and as a dangerous excuse for “hatred” at worst. In America, we now debate whether some speech should be coerced. In Britain, though silent prayer can be illegal, calls for genocide are protected. A world in which we are free only insofar as we agree with those currently in power is a world that's not free at all. During the twentieth century, the world moved forward on the inertia and inheritance Christianity gave to the West. This momentum, however, only lasted so long. Somewhere, during the long fight against the twin tyrannies of Fascism and Communism, we lost those fundamental beliefs and insights into humanity that grounded our ideals about freedom in the first place. Now, well into the twenty-first century, with this Judeo-Christian foundation stripped from beneath us, nothing remains to sustain the passion for liberty. Without a vision of ordered freedom–what Os Guinness has rightly noted as a “freedom for” rather than just a “freedom from”– the claim to “rights” and “liberties” are reduced to squabbles between various groups vying for power. President Reagan's epic call to “Tear down this wall!” will have been for nothing if something better is not built in its place. Western freedom cannot be preserved without a proper understanding of human nature, the understanding that birthed Western freedom in the first place. Only the description of reality offered in the Bible and confirmed by centuries of Christian reflection is robust enough for this task. If rooted only in the malleable ideas of the majority or on the passing fancies of those in power, our most precious liberties will collapse as surely as Communism's concrete boundaries did. This Breakpoint was co-authored by Dr. Timothy Padgett. For more resources to live like a Christian in this cultural moment, go to breakpoint.org.

A worrying trend is cropping up amongst Americans, particularly within Generation Z—they're spying on each other more.Whether reading someone's DMs, rifling through a partner's text messages, or even rummaging through the bags and belongings of someone else, Americans enjoy keeping tabs on one another, especially when they're in a relationship. According to recent research from Malwarebytes, a shocking 49% of Gen Zers agreed or strongly agreed with the statement: “Being able to track my spouse's/significant other's location when they are away is extremely important to me.”On the Lock and Code podcast with host David Ruiz, we've repeatedly tackled the issue of surveillance, from the NSA's mass communications surveillance program exposed by Edward Snowden, to the targeted use of Pegasus spyware against human rights dissidents and political activists, to the purchase of privately-collected location data by state law enforcement agencies across the country. But the type of surveillance we're talking about today is different. It isn't so much "Big Brother"—a concept introduced in the socio-dystopian novel 1984 by author George Orwell. It's "Little Brother."As far back as 2010, in a piece titled “Little Brother is Watching,” author Walter Kirn wrote for the New York Times: “As the Internet proves every day, it isn't some stern and monolithic Big Brother that we have to reckon with as we go about our daily lives, it's a vast cohort of prankish Little Brothers equipped with devices that Orwell, writing 60 years ago, never dreamed of and who are loyal to no organized authority. The invasion of privacy — of others' privacy but also our own, as we turn our lenses on ourselves in the quest for attention by any means — has been democratized.”Little Brother is us, recording someone else on our phones and then posting it on social media. Little Brother is us, years ago, Facebook stalking someone because they're a college crush. Little Brother is us, watching a Ring webcam of a delivery driver, including when they are mishandling a package but also when they are doing a stupid little dance that we requested so we could post it online and get little dopamine hits from the Likes. Little Brother is our anxieties being soothed by watching the shiny blue GPS dots that represent our husbands and our wives, driving back from work.Little Brother isn't just surveillance. It is increasingly popular, normalized, and accessible surveillance. And it's creeping its way into more and more relationships every day. So, what can stop it? Today, we speak with our guests, Malwarebytes security evangelist Mark Stockley and Malwarebytes Labs editor-in-chief Anna Brading, about the apparent "appeal" of Little Brother surveillance, whether the tenets of privacy can ever fully defeat that surveillance, and what the possible merits of this surveillance could be, including, as Stockley suggested, in revealing government abuses of power. "My question to you is, as with all forms of technology, there are two very different sides for this. So is...
To mark Halloween, Duran Duran have released Danse Macabre, a “spooky concept” album. Samira talks to Simon Le Bon and John Taylor about working with Nile Rogers, covering The Specials' Ghost Town and taking pop music seriously. This evening Filkin's Drift play the last of almost 50 concerts, concluding their two month that has seen them travel 870 miles…on foot. The duo has walked from gig to gig, carrying their instruments. As they reach Chepstow they tell Samira about their approach to sustainable touring and how this connects with ancient Welsh bardic tradition. Born in 1923, the artist Dobrivoje Beljkasic found refuge in Bristol after the outbreak of the Bosnian War. His daughter Dee Smart and author Priscilla Morris celebrate his life and legacy on the centenary of his birth, marked by a new exhibition in Sarajevo. George Orwell's seminal Nineteen Eighty-Four continues to occupy a lauded, and sometimes controversial, position in political discourse and popular culture three-quarters of a century after it was first written. Sandra Newman discusses reimagining the story from the perspective of Winston Smith's underwritten lover in her new novel, Julia.

George Orwell's "1984" is the most well-known dystopian novel, but its ubiquity has failed to prevent modern governments from marching toward totalitarianism. I discuss why Orwell's warnings failed and point to other novels that serve as a more effective warnings against our current managerial regime.

There doesn't seem to be anything more 1984 than taking what was one of the most popular selling books of the 21st century and printing an alternative text upon its ashes. There is that wonderful moment in Orwell's masterwork that reads "Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." Okay, David Shrigley isn't some mastermind of double-think of mind control, but he is a conceptual artist. And this was his concept: after seeing a campaign gone viral where the Oxfam charity shop in Swansea had asked people to please stop bringing their copies of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" into the shop to resell, Shrigley decided to buy every copy he could of the novel with the purpose of re-printing over it as "1984." The project is called Pulped Fiction. As we noted earlier this week, fragments of the original novels remain on the paper, with letters and sometimes whole words of Robert Langdon's adventures appearing on the pages. The typeface was carefully chosen to mirror the type used for The Da Vinci Code's first edition, while the book's cover has been repurposed from the card backing and dustjackets of more than 1,250 copies of the hardback special edition. On this episode of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, we sit down with David to discuss Pulped Fiction, the omnipresent shadow that 1984 continues to have on our world, the irony of erasing a text to reprint atop it, the beauty of charity shops and all things happening in the Shrigley world. The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV's Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 124 was recorded on October 25, 2023 in Swansea and Los Angeles.

If you thought life on Airstrip one was tough for Winston Smith, you ain't seen nothing yet. Because in JULIA, Sandra Newman's reimagining of Orwell's nightmare, if men have it hard, you can bet women have it harder. Taking the roughly sketched character of Julia—Winston's love interest and possible betrayer—Sandra Newman gives her a surname, a history, a life of her own. In short, she breathes a soul into her. And in doing so, not only does she allow readers to revisit 1984 with new eyes but creates a novel that stands tall in its own terrifying pair of jackboots.Buy Julia: https://www.shakespeareandcompany.com/books/julia-3SANDRA NEWMAN is the author of The Country of Ice Cream Star (Longlisted for the Women's Prize), The Only Good Thing Anyone Has Ever Done (shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award), Cake, The Heavens and The Men.

D. J. Taylor, literary critic, novelist and Whitbread Prize-winning author of the definitive Orwell: The Life and its highly acclaimed sequel The New Life, and Masha Karp, Orwell scholar, former Russian features editor at the BBC World Service and author of George Orwell and Russia, join the Slightly Foxed team at the kitchen table in Hoxton Square to take a fresh and deeply personal look at the life and work of George Orwell. The man who wrote Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four defies categorization. In this quarter's literary podcast David and Masha sift through newly discovered stashes of letters written by Orwell in the 1930s, and share personal recollections from his adopted son Richard and other living members of his inner circle to tease out fact from fiction and explore the legacy of Orwell's life and work. We start with the chance discovery by a Bonham's auctioneer of nineteen letters from Orwell to a girlfriend, found in a tatty old handbag on the floor of a mouse-ridden woodshed (thrillingly packaged in a nondescript envelope labelled ‘Burn after my death'). Then we're off on a journey through the many-faceted romantic, literary, social and political aspects of Orwell's short life, from the years when he was flitting between jobs and relationships in the small coastal town of Southwold and living down and out in Paris, to his death from tuberculosis in 1950 via his life-altering experience in Spain as a Republican volunteer against Franco. David and Masha draw us deep into Orwell's world – a place of gangsters with gramophones, banned books, vanishing documents, encounters with KGB spies and yet more old girlfriends appearing out of the shadows with revelatory letters – and discuss the long reach of his influence on contemporary literature and political thinking.

At the same time, Hillary Clinton called for Trump supporters to be formally deprogrammed. This goes beyond political rhetoric, paralleling Orwell's dystopian world. Professor Giordano challenges the notion of an all-powerful government, urging a return to the fundamental principles of limited government, Constitutionalism, and the protection of individual liberties.

This week on The Literary Life podcast, Angelina, Cindy, and Thomas bring us the first installment in their series of discussions about C. S. Lewis' science fiction novel Out of the Silent Planet. Angelina shares some background on how Lewis began writing this book and what he set out to do through the genre of science fiction within the form of a romance. In looking at the historical time period in which he was writing, Thomas brings out the transcendent quality of Lewis' message. They talk about Ransom's character and his embodiment of the “old ways.” Cindy points out the Dante-esque details of the beginning of Ransom's journey. Other themes our hosts discuss are the problem of eugenics, the study of philology, the similarities in setup with First Men in the Moon, the enchantment of modernity, medieval cosmology, and so much more!

Commonplace Quotes: “I'm with Orwell,' said Strike. “Some ideas are so stupid, only intellectuals believe them.” Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling) An age of discovery…is apt to loathe established institutions, and be filled with spiritual arrogance. Agnes Mure Mackenzie, The Kingdom of Scotland It is a strange comment on our age that such a book lies hid in a hideous paper-backed edition, wholly unnoticed by the cognescenti, while any “realistic” drivel about some neurotic in a London flat–something that needs no real invention at all, something that any educated man could write if he chose, may get seriously reviewed and mentioned in serious book–as if it really mattered. I wonder how long this tyranny will last? Twenty years ago I felt no doubt that I should live to see it all break up and great literature return: but here I am, losing teeth and hair, and still no break in the clouds. C. S. Lewis, from a letter to Joy Davidman, Dec. 1953 A Selection from New Heaven and New Earth by D. H. Lawrence I was greedy, I was mad for the unknown. I, new-risen, resurrected, starved from the tomb starved from a life of devouring always myself now here was I, new-awakened, with my hand stretched out and touching the unknown, the real unknown, the unknown unknown. My God, but I can only say I touch, I feel the unknown! I am the first comer! Cortes, Pisarro, Columbus, Cabot, they are nothing, nothing! I am the first comer! I am the discoverer!

Here's a question that may cause some sleepless nights: Is the money in your checking account yours or the banks? Jonathan Newman takes a closer look at the language of the bankers and what it really means. Have you noticed how unpopular it is for anyone in business to be turning a profit? Walter Block has a great explanation of why profits are awesome and all around us. The one place where it should be acceptable to be a pack rat is when it comes to accumulating books. Annie Holmquist explains why every home needs burgeoning bookshelves. An essential part of learning to think clearly and independently starts with asking the question "why?" Dana E. Abizaid lays out the reasons why this should be taught to our kids as early as possible. Article of the Day: If you haven't read Orwell's "I984" recently, you might want to snag a copy and read it again. Bobbie Anne Flower Cox makes the case that we're seeing an astonishing amount of Orwellian revisionism right now regarding the covid response.

Lucretia hosts this week, as the fearsome threesome give a brief summary of a recent law school seminar on natural law and the Constitution we presented last week at Berkeley Law before a group of somewhat skeptical students, and then moving on to assaying the Biden impeachment inquiry and Hunter Biden's smoking gun charge, asking why all the White House spokespeople seem to have come from Nerd Central (we mean you, Ian Sams!), and explaining the fundamental asymmetry of the Administrative State in Democratic and Republican presidencies.And isn't it nice that Virginia Democrats have offered us a whole new definition of a "working family"? Who knew that Only Fans might become a new source for campaign contributions. Also: once again the question—are Biden and Harris both on the Democrats' chopping block for next year?Get this: the latest rationale for federal government censorship of the internet is protecting "cognitive infrastructure," which sounds beyond the perverse imagination even of Orwell. And you know how well things go when the government gets interested in infrastructure! But I now have an excuse for the next time I forget something: "My memory hit a pothole in my cognitive infrastructure!"Finally, we close out with some actual news, namely, John Yoo sharing some perspective on his expert witness testimony in the ongoing disbarment proceeding against John Eastman this week.
In Episode 191 of the CounterVortex podcast, Bill Weinberg revisits George Orwell's first novel, Burmese Days (1935), to see if it offers any insight into the current crisis in Burma. The novel is actually problematic in its portrayal of the Burmese, but Orwell's anti-colonialist views are better articulated in his little-known 1929 essay "How a Nation is Exploited: The British Empire in Burma." Ironically, the factors he identified as necessitating "despotic" rule by the British in Burma still mandate dictatorial methods by the regime today—such as the imperative to pacify "frontier areas" where indigenous peoples wage pro-autonomy insurgencies.

Anna Funder's Wifedom: Mrs Orwell's Invisible Life is, ostensibly, a biography of Eileen Blair, nee Eileen O'Shaughnessy, aka the first Mrs George Orwell. And indeed, Anna tells Eileen's story beautifully, using Eileen's own words from letters to friends and to her husband, with added judicious fiction, as she imagines scenes from the Orwells' lives, and from Eileen's life. Turns out, Eileen played a vital role in Orwell's writing and in his life (in actually saving his life – and indeed in keeping alive many others during the Spanish Civil War) and yet she's mostly absent from Orwell's own writing and from his biographies, which are all written by men.And so, as well as shining a light on one woman's hitherto hidden life, Wifedom is also a polemic against the patriarchy and an examination of what it meant and means to be a wife. In this Chops, Mick chats to Anna about all of this, about wife-ing, about Eileen, about Orwell, and, not unrelated to that last name, a lot about arseholes.
