Thought leader and essaysist Rick Turnquist joins Kim to discuss the Orwellian practices of Colorado Democrats and the seminal novel, 1984.

Rick Turnquist on 1984, Colorado Democrats, and Newspeak

Thought leader and essayist Rick Turnquist join Kim in the studio today. In 1949, during the twilight years between WWII and the Cold War, journalist and author George Orwell wrote the novel for 1984. Orwell’s dystopian near-future may be closer than we think. Turnquist talks about themes of the book, the power of language, and how Colorado Democrats seem to be taking more than one cue than the power figures from 1984.

Turnquist also wrote a brilliant essay on this topic. Please enjoy this thoughtful and important interview and essay. You will find both a worthwhile investment of your time.
