Hillary: '1984' Teaches Public Should Trust 'Leaders, The Press, Experts' Who Know What's Good for Them - Breitbart

Hillary: '1984' Teaches Public Should Trust 'Leaders, The Press, Experts' Who Know What's Good for Them - Breitbart: Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared to misinterpret the message behind George Orwell’s 1984 in her new book What Happened.

In her book, Clinton references Orwell’s classic dystopian novel to argue that American citizens should rely on, and not question, their “leaders, the press [and] experts.”

“Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos,” declared Clinton in What Happened. “This is what happens in George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered.”
