From the corruption of truth to pervasive new technologies, and from poverty and inequality to the rise of political extremism, George Orwell's concerns are as relevant to the twenty-first century as they were to the circumstances in which his great novels were conceived. Though our prizes, events, workshops and resources, The Orwell Foundation aims to offer a platform for debate and discussion designed to appeal to the widest possible public audience, connecting with everyone to whom George Orwell and his writings are a source of inspiration.#siteoftheday

Quote Of The Day"The 'public' is a phantom, the phantom of an opinion supposed to exist in a vast number of persons who have no effective interrelation and though the opinion is not effectively present in the units. Such an opinion is spoken of as 'public opinion,' a fiction which is appealed to by individuals and by groups as supporting their special views. It is impalpable, illusory, transient; "'tis here, 'tis there, 'tis gone"; a nullity which can nevertheless for a moment endow the multitude with power to uplift or destroy."
