(OPINION) ETH – Following the recent purge by “big tech,” companies, that have resulted in President Donald Trump being banished from Twitter and restricted on Facebook along with several other conservative personalities silenced on the Internet,
Amazon is reporting that its overall top-selling book is 1984, which ironically is an old novel that portrays a society completely controlled by the government “Thought Police.” The book being trusted to the number one spot is no doubt the fallout of all the suspended and banning of accounts that resulted in Parler being scrubbed, and a grassroots organization for disenchanted Democrats, called “WalkAway”.
According to a report from “Just the News“: “As of Sunday morning, Amazon book sales showed that the top-selling book is the dystopian novel published by George Orwell more than 70 years ago. The classic novel, published in 1949, depicts how government Thought Police eavesdrop on citizens in their own homes, searching for the heresy of any kind.
Anyone whose beliefs deviate from the official norm is declared “unpersons” who never existed.” Consequently, many of the reviews on Amazon drew parallels between the book’s plot and current events in the United States. “Born and living in communist Romania I went through the same ordeal described in 1987,”
wrote Constantin Turculet, who is listed as making a verified purchase. “After 40 years I managed to escape to America, only to find after 35 years of living in freedom that this country is pushed toward the same horror scenario I thought mankind will never forget.”
