Sales Of George Orwell's 1984 Have Surged 6884% In The Last 24 Hours
In the last 24 hours, sales of the 'big brother' book 1984 on Amazon.com have soared by almost 7000% as the reality of the surveillance state come to the public's attention. As Liberty Blitzkrieg's Mike Krieger notes, we suppose it makes sense that people would want to get up to speed on the dystopian world being constructed rapidly and secretly around them. 1984 is now the 4th fastest rising sales book and 184th most popular on Amazon!
The Centennial Edition 1984 book...
And the Combination 1984/Animal Farm book
Perhaps this tweet sums it up...
@zerohedge 1984 was meant to be warning, not a how-to manual
