  1. “If you simplify your English… you cannot speak any of the necessary dialects, and when you make a stupid remark its stupidity will be obvious, even to yourself.”

    I like that. But I think most people are happy to live in appearances. Ever heard of proof by verbosity? It may be a logical fallacy but it’s too common to scoff at.

    If you’re smart enough to know that you may be stupid though, hopefully Mr. Orwell’s words actually matter.
