George Orwell Was Right (read why)


A 1984 parody, with a twist

Winston tucked himself into the small alcove, the only place where Big Brother could not see him. With trembling hands, he reached for the tattered leather satchel at his feet. What he was about to do was forbidden. It could get him killed.

He pulled out a sheaf of newspaper clippings, the pages brown and faded. They were so old that they crumbled if he held them too tightly. A drop of sweat tickled its way down his brow.

His eyes darted back and forth as he searched for the right article. He knew it was in there, he must have read it a hundred times.

Finally, he found it. Though he knew the newspaper article by heart, he was certain that he had missed something. There it was, right at the top of the page with the headline Giant Panda Officially Declared An Endangered Species. 

The year it was written: January 23, 1984.

“That’s it.” Winston whispered. “George Orwell was right. It wasn’t our doom he foresaw, it was the pandas’.”

“Why, George? Why didn’t you warn us?”
