The quote on this button is attributed to author George Orwell and many people believe that it is from his most famous novel 1984; however, this quote does not appear anywhere in the novel or in any of his other works. Currently, there is no substantive evidence that he wrote or said this quote. The quote was attributed to Orwell in its earliest known appearance in 1982 and evolved into a handful of variants. The origin is unclear, but it is possible that the statement began as a proposed summary of Orwell’s position, and it was later incorrectly converted to a quotation.
