Orwell’s Last Interview

[Note: Not Orwell speaking. This is an actor named Christopher Langham, portraying Orwell in a BBCFour documentary on the great writer. If only it was him…..]

“Allowing for the book, after all, being a parody, something like 1984 could actually happen. This is the direction the world is going in at the present time.

“In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. The sex instinct will be eradicated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the Party. But always there will be the intoxication of power. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who’s helpless.

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever. The moral to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: don’t let it happen. It depends on you.”

    And Solzhenitsyn’s warning; you know, about burning in the camps.
    Literally and figuratively, it seems.

    The Taliban’s political agenda is almost disturbingly viable in the West:

    “So the Taliban offensive only seems to be gaining power and they now have control of 2/3 the country. They are killing thousands in the areas they have taken over. They have just issued a list of people who civilians need to report to them so they can be executed.

    Anybody who worked for the previous government

    Bankers and financial workers

    Anybody committing child abuse


    Women in political office


    TV presenters

    LGBT activists

    LGBT individuals”

    Let’s face it, that’s a more compelling platform for the average populist than anything the Democrats or the Republicans have on offer these days. Apparently the Taliban have even banned both abortion and Covid vaccinations. Which suggests, at this point, a Taliban-endorsed candidate would easily defeat Joe Biden in a fair election, not that the USA has those anymore.

    However, the Taliban has also provided a useful reminder in how to deal with a fake and corrupt electoral system run by foreigners who hate America, Christianity, and the West.

    “Our message to the American people and people of the western powers who fought us, who we know are hurt by this defeat, is simple: we do not have any hatred for you. Your government, ran by Zionists and atheists, who want to spread their anti-Islamic views here, were our enemies, not you. We pray for the day when you liberate yourselves from their grip and there can be peace upon this planet.”

    Now, I’m not a Muslim and it’s not the sort of system under which I’d prefer to live. But then, neither is satanic globo-homo.

    Good bye Taiwan, your were our friend. Your days have significantly decreased ,,, due to American govt, incompetence.

    People,,,,,,,Elections especially stolen elections have consequences.

    Our communist govt. don’t have the competence to come to the aid of nationalist China.

    If you were communist China, can you think of a better time to attack Taiwan ?

    Title is misleading with the YT link; there are no known audio recordings of Orwell speaking, or known moving pictures of his likeness.

    Nonsense. Correction, that is not Orwell after all. I stand corrected.
