Honesty …

… George Orwell's 'Homage to Catalonia' Revisited - Mail Online - Peter Hitchens blog.(Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Waugh and Orwell are, I now think, the two great voices of their era. All their many differences are as nothing to their joint love of truth at all costs, and their parallel searches for a moral principle hard enough to withstand real life. Anyone who has read both of them has a privileged view of our time.
