Can someone edit these two paragraphs on why 1984 by George Orwell is meaningful to me?

This novel is meaningful because of its relevance in today’s society. In Egypt, a country which is revolting to overthrow its unfair ruler, there are many similarities to Nineteen Eighty Four’s Oceania. There was even a reference made to the book by Mohammad ElBaradei, who tweeted “Since January 25th, innocents continue to be killed & tortured while authority denies using force or violence. Orwell’s “Min. of Truth” reincarnated.”  As if to prove this point, the tweet was deleted soon afterwards. This represents the type of government Orwell was trying to warn us about.

This book should be meaningful to everyone, because it shows the importance of being politically aware. It’s important to be politically aware and to voice our opinions so that we, as a nation, do not succumb to a totalitarianism government.

I would make the following changes, which I have marked:

This novel is meaningful because of its relevance for today’s society. In Egypt, a country which has revolted to overthrow its ruler, we find many similarities to the Oceania described in Orwell's 1984. There was even a reference made to Orwell's novel by Mohammad El Baradei, who tweeted “Since January 25th, innocents continue to be killed & tortured while authority denies using force or violence. Orwell’s “Min. of Truth” reincarnated.”  As if to prove this point, the tweet was deleted soon afterwards. [I would insert something about who deleted the tweet]. Such a deletion represents the type of government Orwell was trying to warn us about. [Here I would insert in your own words a description of what type of government Orwell was against.]

Orwell's 1984 should be meaningful to everyone, because it shows the importance of being politically aware. It is important to be politically aware and to voice our opinions so that we, as a nation, do not succumb to a totalitarian government. [Here I would insert something else to fill out this paragraph. Usually, two-sentence paragraphs are considered a no-no.]
