Orwell literally calls Big Brother and his dystopian group, Socialists

ORWELL'S 1984

Newspeak is the language of Oceania, a fictional totalitarian state and the setting of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), by George Orwell. To meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism(Ingsoc) in Oceania, the ruling Party created Newspeak, [1] a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought — personal identity, self-expression, free will— that threatens the ideology of the régime of Big Brother and the Party, who have criminalized such concepts into thoughtcrime, as contradictions of Ingsoc orthodoxy.

You absolutely can't be this stupid, so one can only conclude you are pretending to be world class ignorant.

Orwell was a socialist. Socialism is what he believed in. 1984 was a book about the concept of socialism being hijacked by capitalists and used to further their own agenda.

Orwell was a socialist. Socialism is what he believed in.

Nice try Nom, but no cigar.

1)

Orwell detested Soviet-style Communism – a belief strengthened when he ended up fighting Soviet-backed Communists during the Spanish civil war.

2)

But, Stalin wanted to crush all left-wing parties who were not the Communist party; this led to a civil war amongst the Republican movement in Spain. Orwell got caught up in this and it made him really disgusted with Stalin and the Communist party.
