George Orwell, author of '1984'

Right now it feels like we are in a broken time machine that keeps landing us in various random points in time. For a while there in the pandemic, we were transported back to the Middle Ages.

Britain has recently seemed as if it’s stuck in the 1950s, and while it started to feel like the 1970s for a while, our best guess at where we have landed now is 1984, the last time we saw inflation like this.
