Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
I am currently rereading 1984 and it is frightening how many things in this novel are coming true; or have already been implemented. It's almost as if the book has been used as a manual for our system of government.
Orwell knew his stuff. Homage to Catalonia is good too. I didn't know he got shot in the neck while fighting on the front lines in Spain.
Those of us on the right will be shot, too. Only the mindless middle will remain.
