        Some Quotes from George Orwell

        April 20th, 2009 by Alexei Zoubov

        “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

        “Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.”

        “In our time political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible.”

        “Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”

        “The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them. ”

        “War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.”
        — George Orwell
