"Stephen Spender said to me recently, 'Don't you feel that at any time during the last ten years you have been able to foretell events better than, say, the Cabinet ?'

"Where I feel that people like us understand the situation better than so-called experts is not in any power to foretell specific events but to grasp what kind of world we are living in.

"At any rate, I have known since about 1931 (Spender says he has known since 1929) that the future must be catastrophic."

(Orwell's Diary : 8 June 1941)
