It’s always easier for someone to advocate for socialism while they are free to enjoy the wealth and prestige they obtain from book and movie sales.

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.

If you are referring to Orwell, he didn’t have any movie sales in his lifetime, and never made more than a subsistence living from his books. He was not famous or a celebrity in his lifetime.
