The Rebellion Paradox

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “Truth Beckons“…

Rayn:

"Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious." - George Orwell, 1984

“Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.” – George Orwell, 1984

Renat S.: Sometimes one needs consciousness not to rebel

Rayn: Indeed. Yet, when injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes duty – to paraphrase another famous quote. Have you ever read Orwell’s book, “1984,” by the way?

Renat S.: No, I haven’t; thank you for suggestion

Rayn: You’re welcome. 🙂
