“Make Orwell fiction again”

"Make Orwell fiction again” is a political saying that has been printed on many images. English novelist George Orwell (1903-1950) wrote the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), a book set in the year 1984 when there is perpetual war and constant government propaganda and surveillance. Some people believe that the fictional world of the book describes current world conditions.

“Make Orwell fiction again!” was posted on Twitter by Grumpy Dem on January 22, 2017. “Make George Orwell Fiction Again - Hanes Tagless Tee T-Shirt” was posted on Twitter by Mona Shaw on October 31, 2017.

“Make Margaret Atwood fiction again” is a similar saying.


Wikipedia: Nineteen Eighty-Four
Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel published in 1949 by English author George Orwell. The novel is set in the year 1984 when most of the world population have become victims of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance and propaganda.

Considering that, perhaps the only way to achieve what US President Donald Trump says he wants to, which is to “Make America great again”, is to “Make Orwell fiction again”, rather than our everyday reality.
