The Illusion of Literacy

I’m trying to study for my English course and I need some help to understand this question.

  • “Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us.”
  • “Huxley feared that the truth would be drowned out in a sea of irrelevance.” “A populace deprived of the ability to separate lies from truth, that has become hostage to the fictional semblance of reality put forth by pseudo-events, is no longer capable of sustaining a free society.”
    • Provide a current example that supports ONE of these statements.
    • Write a paragraph (125-150 words) analyzing this example based on what your learned in the first chapter: “The Illusion of Literacy”.
    • you will also reply to one of your classmate’s posts with your understanding of how his/her example supports one of the three statements above.
