1984; Read it with new eyes

I recently read nineteen-eighty four by George Orwell. Man, that is a fantastic book. For those of you who read it years ago because you had to in school, my best advice is to read it again. Read it again with fresh eyes. Think about the world today when you read it. Think about how the governments of today try to manipulate the media to only show us their version of the truth, and in many cases, history. Imagine that this book was written just after WWII yet is so relevant today. It is a clear reminder that we have to continue to ask questions, of ourselves and those who lead us. Challenge our own misconceptions and control our own opinions.

Trust me, read it again...
