Born Eric Arthur Blair, George Orwell wrote extensively about social justice issues, most notably his fictional novels: Animal Farm and 1984. These novels attempted to reveal the dangers of surveillance by government and the way that the class system serves to perpetuate the collection of assets among the very rich in English society. Many of the lessons that he learned as a young man serving as a police officer in Burma informed his fiction.
