Orwell's brilliant use of irony is interesting, especially in regards to his perspective on power and political institutions. It is extremely important for any philosophy of liberation to identify those in power as undeserving of the post they currently possess. With his use of irony, Orwell already de-centers the authority of those in power. It is easier to rise up against leaders who are not considered serious.
