Who’s the best model of the politically engaged writer? George Orwell, said the late Christopher Hitchens.

According to Hitchens, Orwell got it right about imperialism, fascism and communism.  In this archival interview on To the Best of Our Knowledge, Hitchens tells Steve Paulson that Orwell opposed all of them at a time when most intellectuals ignored the contradictions of the Left.
