Students for an Orwellian Society:

“The mission of SOS is to promote the vision of a society based upon the principles of Ingsoc, first articulated by George Orwell in his prophetic novel, 1984. SOS is active at Columbia, Oberlin, Penn State, NYU, UMass, Minuteman High School, FSC, CalTech, UVA, RIT, Murray, JHU, UC-Berkeley, MSCD, SUNY-Stony Brook, UC-Davis, Bellevue CC, Trinity Chrisitan Academy, and a number of other schools…

As to be expected, SOS has been quite successful. Since the events of 11 September, we have been able to convince a number of figures in national and local politics to help forward our aims. How could they do otherwise?

Our successes can be shown to fit into the three major ideals of Ingsoc as expressed by Orwell:

  • War is Peace
  • Freedom is Slavery
  • Ignorance is Strength”
