1984-Newspeak by Penny Lewis at the Freedom Babbleon

Penny is a lecturer at the University of Dundee and at Wuhan University. In this engaging short piece, Penny provides a timely warning. Growing censoriousness and new hate crime legislation in Scotland are frighteningly similar to Orwell’s Newspeak. She reads from the appendix on the ‘removal of words,’ a chilling lesson for our time.
