Letter: Trump willingly embraces Orwell’s totalitarian vision

Trump willingly embraces Orwell’s totalitarian vision

Still yet again the White House has disavowed a nonpartisan report by the Congressional Budget Office because it is at odds with its alt-truth regarding the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act.

There is now a clear and dangerous pattern emerging reminiscent of George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984,” in which the Ministry of Truth alters every story, past and present, to match Big Brother’s totalitarian agenda.

Thankfully, we in the U.S. do still have a system of checks and balances that can intervene in this current march to dystopia, as warned by Orwell’s novel.

I remain hopeful that even the most ardent Trump supporters will see this potentially dark future and let conscience and sense guide them through their next voting choices.
