It can be observed that the middle-classed communist still associates with the middle-class, still lives among the middle-class, and his tastes are those of a bourgeois person. The desperation of working-class people, brutally charted by Orwell, is present today. The subject material that was presented was very intriguing and striking like a piece of Stilton cheese. With all of the criticisms that Orwell discusses in regards to socialism, it needs to be noted how fascism played a background to his ideologies. This is a fascinating read, I would highly recommend. Drawing on the experiences described in part one, and those as a tramp described in Down and Out in Paris and London, Orwell goes on in part two to offer some broader observations on the English class system and on the challenges facing socialism. The Road to Wigan Pier is an account of his experiences, along with more general ruminations on class and the challenge facing socialism.
In the second portion of the book, Orwell presented his own interpretation of Socialism and offered a critique of Socialist practices then obtaining. Moreover, his words touch us today because there are great similarities between now and the period of his writings. Wiley anordic hooked between the mountains?
