In truth, Orwell's political positions were not straight left or right. He would agree with Norton concerning centralized economies even while he was pro-union, mildly socialist and not a fan of powerful business interests. He hated communism and Stalin in particular and fought against Franco in Spain. He saw Hitler correctly as pro-business, anti-union and anti-socialist. If there was a label of "Pragmatic Anarchist" it might have worked for him.
