Politics and the English Language

At a time when our political debate has become toxic and untethered to reality, and our broader public discourse marked by triviality and belligerence, Orwell’s classic 1946 essay reminds readers of the ways in which language shapes thought, and warns of the dangers of politicized, imprecise, and misleading language in corrupting public life. He offers straightforward means of improving our use of language — and argues that doing so helps illuminate injustice and protect freedom. 

With an insightful introduction by columnist Pete Wehner, this Reading offers hope for improving our public conversation.
