It’s hard to imagine that anything could be more reassuring to the opponents of the besieged socialist government of Alberta than the seeming hysteria that has overtaken this government in the count down to the election on April 16. Consider their situation. They are governing a province that has suffered the loss of somewhere between 100,000 and 150,000 jobs during their term in office. Many say the situation will grow much worse before it gets better. Now the big moment arrives. They call an election, and the government is setting up a special website that will, we presume, tell us how catastrophic is this economic crisis and what they plan to do about it.

When I took 1984 with me on vacation recently, I didn’t expect to read it. Unlike the two other books with me—Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life and Matt Ridley’s The Rational Optimist—I had already read Orwell’s classic work. Or had I? It had been at least 25 years.

Perhaps because Huxley’s dystopia had always seemed lighter and less malevolent. Less gritty.
