Let's Stop Taking George Orwell's Name In Vain
"People mention Orwell ... to suggest that the writer of Animal Farm and 1984 would disapprove of the activities that Edward Snowden made public. And people may well be right about that. But Orwell would likely disapprove of the use - the overuse - of his name. That's because Orwell crusaded against clichés like few public figures have before or since." The Atlantic 06/19/13
