Uhhh.....that does not apply in any way, or on any level to Orwell.....he lived, an died , sick with various ailments, and broke. Indeed, he profited so greatly from his writings that he had to scrounge together enough money to open a small
stationery shop just to keep his head above water.

I didn’t say it was easier for Orwell, only that in general for those that advocate the glories of socialism tend to be the very ones that are living the high life courtesy of capitalism.
Speaking of which, you mean Orwell had to “make ends meet” by resorting to capitalism?
