Orwell was clearly a product of his age. But it is equally clear that he was in the process of rising above some of that influence.

Pity he didn't live a few more years, we would have seen whether he would have abandoned socialism completely, or not!

In my opinion he was a better man than FDR, though not as good as Churchill.

That's an accurate description, I wonder what Orwell thought of the New Deal? ;)

He predicted the collapse of Soviet system and return of capitalism - in Animal Farm.
