Mark Weber

Life in the western world today differs markedly from what [author George Orwell] suggested it might be like in [his book] 1984. In contrast to the squalid, puritanical and thoroughly regimented life of 1984's Oceania ... life today is increasingly anarchic and self-indulgent. But there are also many ominous similarities. Deceptive 'Newspeak' terms are in wide use today. One of the most odious examples is 'affirmative action' which, despite its benign ring, is a dishonest label for a vast government-imposed program of anti-white racial discrimination.

1986 - from "Historical Revisionism and the Legacy of George Orwell"
