Mexico's president given George Orwell's 1984 by the Queen
Published on 04-01-2009

The president of Mexico received one of the more unusual gifts given by the Queen during an incoming state visit today - a copy of the classic dystopian novel 1984.

At Buckingham Palace, Felipe Calderon was presented with a first edition of George Orwell's nightmarish book, which tells of a totalitarian regime and coined the concept Big Brother.

The Royal Household seeks guidance from the staff of incoming VIPs when deciding what to offer during the official exchange of gifts.

A Palace spokeswoman said: "Apparently the president really admires George Orwell."

The 1949 book was boxed in leather by the bindery at Windsor.

Mr Calderon also received the traditional present given to guests - framed photographs of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

The president's wife Margarita Zavala received a small silver box with EIIR inscribed in gold on the lid.

The Queen received a Maque tray from Michoacan, the Mexican state from which the president comes. Philip received a wooden Olinala chest.

The exchange of gifts between rulers is a long-standing custom. In 1520 Henry VIII and Francis I of France exchanged gifts at the Field of Cloth of Gold in northern France.

During a state visit, the exchange usually happens on the first day and serves as a gesture of goodwill between the two nations.

Orwell would have been horrified to see how right he was. Notes and commentary from him and those who knew him point towards him wanting to warn people in 1948 (the year he wrote the book) that giving up freedom for security would lead to an end to both.

...poor George... to die with one of the great warnings in print, read and ignored by so many.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 628461

It's called "thinking" and "reasoning". He saw the cause of WWII being the treaties that made Germany have to essentially become a non-state after WWI. He saw the fanatical approach the media (news and movies) used to generate huge profits for the makers of guns and war materials BEFORE the start of the war. He saw the willing acceptance of "security" over freedom in germany and then europe and just went forward with that line of insanity.

There wasn't a plot, there isn't a plot. There is the willingness to accept small degridations of person liberties and those who will quickly take advantage of those degridations for their personal power. Those same people will then add another weight to the pile, but slowly so the people carrying it don't complain... until they are crushed quietly.

The real "conspiracy" is that people want there to be one so they feel justified in ranting rather than standing up for problems that are visable and immediate.
