            A Theory of Dictatorships

            Release date : 09/05/2019
            On the eve of the European elections, Michel Onfray offers a philosophical and political interpretation of the work of George Orwell, who he believes heralds the coming of a new dictatorship, symbolized by what he calls the “Maastrichtian enterprise” – the EU, in which he sees “the tyranny of a minority.”
            George Orwell’s novel, 1984, famously shows what a dictatorship is and how it functions. His political fable, Animal Farm, illustrates that a revolution, in both the etymological and political sense, is a movement that always returns to its point of departure. With time, the farm animals that expropriate their master... George Orwell’s novel, 1984, famously shows what a dictatorship is and how it functions. His political fable, Animal Farm, illustrates that a revolution, in both the etymological and political sense, is a movement that always returns to its point of departure. With time, the farm animals that expropriate their master become more tyrannical than their master was. Only the donkey, the animal that can’t be yoked, saves the world by maintaining a critical mind. Any resemblance with a known situation is clearly not fortuitous for Michel Onfray, who reminds us that 2050 is the ultimate date set by Orwell in 1984 for the fulfillment of his dark prophecy. “At the rate things are going, Orwell might be right: 2050 is not a vain hope for the nihilists who call themselves progressives.”
