a democratic socialist

George Orwell was a Democratic socialist.

  • A Socialist did not claim that they could make the world perfect, but they were trying to improve it. He also argued that if there were no more very rich and no more very poor people, such a society would still have a vast number of other problems to solve, because a society which is balanced in wealth, is not a perfect society.”
  • Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly against Totalitarianism and for Democratic Socialism, as I understand it". – ‘Why I Write (1946)
  • Orwell thought that all political theories and ideologies - except socialism - are hopeless and disillusioning.
