George Orwell (whose given name was Eric Blair) wrote a prescient essay in 1946, called Politics and the English Language. We live in a polarized political climate, and no matter which side you stand on, these two quotations from Orwell’s essay will likely be ones you can agree with. (And yes, it’s fine to end sentences with prepositions.) I urge you to read the entire essay. I doubt you’ll ever forget it.
• Political language … is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
• The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.
