Predictor of the future or Manual for the future?

This event is an opportunity to escape the solitary experience of reading a frighteningly real book.  Attendees are invited to take turns reading aloud from a key chapter outlining the “Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism.”  A conversation will follow the reading.

Published 66 years ago this month, in his novel 1984, George Orwell captures the arc and essence of much of the political / power developments to the present.  Its relevance and predictive power seems to increase with each passing year. With Bill C-51 as recent backdrop, 1984 assumes even greater significance for Canadians.
