The only thing that Orwell missed was the rise of feminism and soy boys. His dystopian future was still fairly masculine.

Of course, universal suffrage in the west didn't happen until after his book (written in 1946?).

Yeah. I think he does tie in feminism in a way. Sex in the book is a weapon of the state. With this #metoo movement......it’s starting. I mean, all 5e feminists say any sex is rape.

How often I see something in current events, and am reminded not just of Orwell, but Ayn Rand’s writing too. I’ve always especially thought she “nailed it” with respect to the way she depicted leftists and their changing or bastardizing language.

Who is John Gault?

Hmm...it's been a while, but I recall sex being treated by government in a polar opposite fashion to how we see it now. I always thought it depicted a paternalistic society.
