No wonder I don’t trust authority

I hear there was an election in the U.S.A.
 
Before I starting watching the news, I read books about the ‘possible’ news.
 
I learned about the politics of immigration, the politics of authority, the politics of gender, and the politics of media and technology from great science fiction authors.  Most of these I read in my teens. I searched for the covers of the editions I read, as I remember them.
 
Strangely, I am still not sure of the cover of the 1984 I read.  That makes me feel manipulated.
