In 1948, George Orwell published the political satire “1984” in which Big Brother was watching us, (can you say Patriot Act?) and politicians engaged in Doublethink. Some examples of this:
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
In a press conference last week George W Bush was quoted as saying:
DEMOCRACIES DON’T WAR, DEMOCRACIES ARE PEACEFUL COUNTRIES
Given that the United States of America prides itself as a Democracy and that they have been dropping bombs on other countries non-stop since World War II, I find this disgustingly deceitful.
