I don't see how one allegory that Orwell wrote about elephants links him 
to Hitchens.  One of the best essays I've read was Orwell's Notes on 
Nationalism, very useful and incisive explanation of the psychology of 
irrational attachments. And whining incessantly Orwell's attack on 
Stalinism is puerile. Stalinism was Stalinism regardless and one or the 
other clever writer was going to come around to sermonize about its 
evils one way or the other anyway.
