An Orwellian America

There are few pieces of literature that describe the current state of American politics so accurately as one George Orwell quote from the novel 1984: “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” For those unfamiliar with the novel, it is the story of a citizen living in a totalitarian state that enforces its authority by persecuting anyone who holds unspoken beliefs that oppose the artificial truth upheld by the government.

We see examples of this in modern America, especially the bullying tactics used by the Obama administration regarding bathroom usage in public schools. Attorney General Loretta Lynch issued a statement saying, “There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex.” The statement went on to encourage public schools to allow students to use the bathrooms of their identity or else face the possibility of loss of federal resources.
