    I missed the reference on the Unicode list, but I think you need to read
    _1984_, not _Homage to Catalonia_..

    If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores,
    are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine,
    who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint
    Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.
