STAYING SANE BY REREADING "1984"

From the Ministry of Truth:
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
Yes, I'm rereading 1984.

Winston: He was a lonely ghost uttering a truth that nobody would ever hear. But so long as he uttered it, in some obscure way the continuity was not broken. It was not by making yourself heard but by staying sane that you carried on the human heritage.

If you're thinking, "She must be crazy," I don't blame you, but in some crazy way it makes sense to me.

  1. not crazy at all..since the advent of the djt 1984 has become the #1 top seller on amazon. I have downloaded and begun reading

    Amoung all of the other damage djt is causing, it is clear to me that he is a spiritual and mental hazard...a danger to the soul

    do whatever it takes to remain sane.

    1. Thanks, Daniel. Indeed, the new mental health problem affecting a number of people is called TTSD (Trump Traumatic Stress Disorder).
