Ministry of Love Continues Doubleplusgood Book Collection Activity

In October, the Ministry of Love announced its fourth-quarter plan to gather 315
separate copies of George Orwell's landmark novel 1984, from proles
and party comrades alike, all across our brave homeland.

Once collected, all 315 copies are to be mailed separately to each
Member of Congress who voted for the Military Commissions Act
on September 28th and 29th, in the sixth year of our glorious leader's regime.

Today we are pleased to say we have attained 21% of our goal! This is a wonderful victory for Miniluv!

In case you've forgotten, our glorious leader's regime has gifted us
with the following remarkably Orwellian achievements:
* spying on ordinary citizens without their knowledge
* paid propaganda masquerading as news reports
* removal by Thought Police of ungoodthinkers (protesters) from all
Party rallies and celebrations featuring our glorious leader
* community members encouraged to report "suspicious activities" of
neighbors and co-workers
* the promise of an endless war

Now, through the farsightedness of these distinguished 315 Inner Party
Members, House and Senate, we have added sanctioned torture and
indefinite detainment of suspects to that noteworthy list.

To recognize those who have brought us one step closer to the utopian
world envisioned by Orwell, Miniluv will enclose a handwritten note
with each copy of 1984, thanking each 315 Inner Party Member
individually for their achievement.

Send new and used copies of 1984 to the following address:
Ministry of Love
Box 655
Guilford, CT 06437

If ordering online, have books shipped directly to Miniluv
If you would like your donation earmarked for a particular Inner Party
Member, please note that with your shipment.
Goodthinkers always use media mail rates for shipping books.
Donations for postage to the Inner Party Members are doubleplushelpful.
