1984 to 2017 is 33-years. It's something I have been talking about since 2013.
Think about the recent reporting that the leader of North Korea, Kim, is '33' again, for a second year in a row. He is now born in '1984' (last year it was '83... down the memory hole). The Korean War began on George Orwell's birthday, June 25, 1950.
Notice the post time of 1:25, something like '125', for North Korea.
Notice the book is 68-years-old at the time of these record sales. That also connects to Trump and more. Let us never forget 1968.
47,000 copies since the election of Trump?
The part about 75,000 books also pops out.
As for why this reporting is coming today, I have a thought.
1/25/17 = 1+25+17 = 43
