Subject: Question, Leif

You've mentioned 1984 now a couple times. Did you read it in English or Swedish? I agree, it's a Must Read.

(So is The Law by Frederich Bastiat and The Theme is Freedom by M. Stanton Evans, but now I'm hijacking my own thread. :D)

Have you also read Animal Farm? I know since the "fall" of Communism, anti-communist books have fallen out of favor, but I find it an excellent object lesson on any form of oppressive or authoritarian government.

13yods has recently read both books and we've had some pretty fascinating discussions on the topic, esp as it relates to current history.
