Re: Um… Why?

And do people who voted for Trump, or for Farage, ever wonder how someone like Hitler could ever have gotten into power?

Farrage was mostly voted for by labour voters, at least until the referendum result came in, and 1984 is also based around an imagined future labour government, so I'd say the evidence is pretty clear: You create a client state (those on welfar or in public sector roles) who depend on you financially, you then stimulate them to vote for you by paying them more, and eventually seize power.
