Erich Fromm, in the “Afterword” in the Signet Classic edition of 1984, states:
“George Orwell’s 1984 is the expression of a mood, and it is a warning. The mood it expresses is that of near despair about the future of man, and the warning is that unless the course of history changes, men all over the world will lose their most human qualities, will become soulless automatons and will not even be aware of it.” (p. 313)
