Letter: Careful what you wish for

After reading numerous letters to the editor and op-ed pieces praising Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his authoritarian mindset, one conclusion I draw is that it seems that many of his supporters are nostalgic for 1984. Not the 1984 of the Reagan years, but rather the 1984 of the novel by the same name by George Orwell.
