'The hardest thing, Orwell said, is to see what’s right before one’s nose. It should be apparent to any reasonable person, that we’re living through an eerie, lethal rerun of the 1930s. A fallen empire, in which people who expected lives of plenty now live at the edge of ruin, wracked by inflation and debt. A bellowing demagogue, who promises to make fallen middle classes great again. Nazis rising to power, while being glorified, legitimized, and by media, who coddles and promotes them, in the guise of “questioning” them. Demonization & scapegoating. Dehumanization and expropriation. Pseudoscience. The wheels of the state becoming machines to cleanse away the impure — so the soil belongs only to the pure, the strong, and the true.
The plot line is just the same — only the characters have changed. All that is left to see is whether the ending will rewrite itself just the same way, too.'
