Most relevant book today? #Happy new year 2019

Hi,

Bookblog community.

All lovely friends.

As new year yawns to open its eyes and gets ready to handover us another 365 days that we can use to float between agony and ecstacy.

.

.

.

It is blank, it is expecting, it is colourless yet so heavy, when one speculates what it bring in its belly.

.

New year generally means throwing away old calenders, getting jolted to realise one year less left to live, many undone resolutions which stare from corners of our psyche and a whole bucket of tantalizing challenges.

.

World around us is changing, surely.

.

We have infected our mother nature with our overflowing mass and closing our eyes; we wait till waters enter our nostrils. Then only words like death of earth are going to be legible to our selfish eyes.

.

.

Today one book comes to my mind which was published by a great author under pen name , George Orwell; nineteen eighty four.

.

This book was published in 1949 and even after 70 years, it reappears in bestseller lists. It again came at number 6 in Amazon bestseller list in 2017.

It was due to disillusionment from story of liberalism and strengthening of nationalism and fundamentalism.

.

Trump rose to power, refugees crisis, Brexit, China Us trade war, Paris agreement betrayal, religious fundamentalism, reselection of Putin and Chinese premiers; this all led to mass shivering in the bodies of liberalism advocates.

.

Liberalism although being most successful of all doctrines about human cooperation, has come under a lot of doubts in recent years.

.

More and more countries are closing off their border and consider they and their thinking is the greatest and all their resources are their personal property.

.

This will have negative effect on world. We need wide spread international cooperation to fight environmental crisis, nuclear threat, hardcore fundamentalism and for the prosperity of world trade.

.

.

We need every possible scientific achievements arising anywhere in world to reach everyone at reasonable price.

Suppression of free speech in direct and indirect ways is visible all around the world.

So is deep sense of we and them.

.

This book becomes relevant everytime;

1. when selfishness wins over morality,

2. Negative nationalism overpowers positive nationalism,

3. Double think exists,

4. Foreign lands everywhere you fly,

5. Opportunistic trade rules,

6. Misuse of power,

7. Treating people as high and backward ones.

.

Although liberalism and enlightenment have created a very peaceful and progressive world but that is at the expense of environment and drained all vital resources.

.

This book will always remain relevant; except times when we co-operate without thinking about our personal biases.

.

Wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.
