University Flags 1984 as Offensive

It is only a matter of time until the real life Winston Smiths of our real life totalitarian society stuff 1984 down the memory hole. Already it has been marked as “offensive and upsetting” by the University of Northampton.

The novel, which warns us away from the authoritarian path we have taken under the malevolent influence of the pointy heads of academia, gets a warning flag for addressing “challenging issues related to violence, gender, sexuality, class, race, abuses, sexual abuse, political ideas and offensive language.”

Works that have been flagged as offensive will eventually be banned. Just as the Newspeak Dictionary becomes ever thinner as words that may facilitate thoughtcrime are purged from the permissible vocabulary, so too will the Western canon of literature, until it consists mainly of the poems of Maya Angelou.
