I really enjoyed your letter to George Orwell in your blog this week! I think your interpretation of Orwell’s message is interesting in the way that you say he teaches us that taking care in our use of the English language can shape the future however, I think he goes much deeper than that. I feel that his essay is more about the dangers of using the English language in particular ways such as to exclude people, to enforce standards upon people and to demonstrate power over others. I did like your example of the shorthand text language often used today as it is definitely used to exclude others, mostly due to generational difference.
Keep up the good work!
