British hypocrisy: University finds novel 1984 ‘offensive and upsetting’ as it perfectly predicted the current miserable state of Britain as the No.1 surveilled state

Protecting students from the ugly reality of Britain today: a British university has issued a warning over “offensive and upsetting” content in Orwell’s famous "1984" dystopia. Students are being warned of ‘explicit material’ awaiting them in a novel that, ironically, describes the dangers of censorship. Britain is the most surveilled country in the world, with more daily spying-on-every-“citizen” (subject) than in China and North Korea. Also, as so often recently demonstrated, it has one set of rules for the "upper" class and a totally opposite set for the rest of the hard-done by British population.
The University of Northampton has issued a harsh warning over potentially “offensive and upsetting” material contained in the famous dystopia by George Orwell, ‘1984.’The novel, which describes the dangers of totalitarian rule and censorship, is now red-flagged, as it addresses “challenging issues related to violence, gender, sexuality, class, race, abuses, sexual abuse, political ideas and offensive language.” Notwithstanding that this is an entirely accurate picture of life for the masses in Britain today, it is supremely ironic that The University of Northampton is trying to hide reality from its ill-educated students.

The German poet Heinrich Heine once observed that wherever books are burned, in the end people are burned, too. His words turned out to be prophetic, as his own books would be burnt by the Nazis during the 1930s; and that's exactly where Britain is heading today, driven by a woke government that has pressed the accelerator fully to the floor.

The warning, issued to students taking a module called ‘Identity Under Construction,’ became public following a Freedom of Information request by The Mail on Sunday.

The news raised eyebrows among social media users, with one saying that Orwell is “grave turning” and another reacting with an emotional “Get me off this planet. I can't deal.”

It is very unclear why parents, no matter how dumb, would send their children to a "university" that hides the facts of life from their precious little darlings. And when the "university" compounds this crime against education by discouraging them from studying one of the most accurate, prophetic masterpieces in the history of literature, far more accurate than the Bible or the New Testament.

“There’s something very Big Brother about it,” Conservative MP Andre Bridgen commented on Twitter.

“If a trigger warning prevents even one student from reading 1984, the University of Northampton has utterly failed in its mission. This book, more than any, should be read widely at the moment,” an Australian professor, Andrew Timming, noted.

However, Orwell’s classic novel is not the only one students at Northampton should beware of, according to the university’s management. Samuel Beckett’s play ‘Endgame,’ the graphic novel ‘V For Vendetta’ by Alan Moore, and David Lloyd and Jeanette Winterson’s ‘Sexing The Cherry’ have also been listed by the university as “offensive and upsetting.”

It is completely baffling to think that the sub-par professors of this "university" have completed bachelor's degrees or even elementary education in the UK (which presumably they have had to). When they display such a perverted and stupid worldview, their place is not even in the realms of higher academe in North Korea, but in the University of the Germany Reich in 1939.

Apparently, there are also some problems with books taught in other modules of Northampton’s English degree course as well. Mark Haddon’s 2003 novel ‘The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time,’ for example, might be upsetting for readers, as it includes the “death of an animal, ableism and disability and offensive language”, the warning explains.

The distinguished educational institution - currently mistakenly ranked at 108 out of 132 UK universities in the 2022 edition of The Times-Sunday Times Good University Guide, instead of being ranked at 133 out of 132 - has issued a statement to defend its warnings.

As quoted in The Daily Mail, Northampton University says that “while it is not university policy, we may warn students of content in relation to violence, sexual violence, domestic abuse and suicide” because “some texts might be challenging for some students.”

How stupid can the management and teaching staff of an educational institution be when they see the challenge of thinking new thoughts as a danger instead of an opportunity? Who are the idiots in government who designated this not-fit-for-purpose shambles as an institution qualified to educate children?

No responsible parents should send any of their family members to be trained in this clown circus, not even their household cat. The connection between this "university" and education is not tenuous, it's dangerous.
