Some fun reading

An article from the Cato Institute titled Doublespeak and the War on Terrorism. A nice little summary of what our government has been turning into.

  1. You know, I was pondering my reactions and feelings on monday, to the events since five years ago and all I could come up with is hatred for the US government. This article supports what I’ve been thinking all along and I despair that few citizens have seen and heard the doublespeak due to the dismal situation of the educational system. *sighs*

  3. As I’ve been watching the US government descend further into Orwellian madness recently, I’ve been wondering something: Is the doublethink epidemic local to the US, or is it global? Are other governments around the world facing their problems head on, with an open debate, or are they inventing their own dialects of newspeak?

  5. Hmm. I think it depends on the location. Israel hasn’t had more doublespeak than usual, but there’s been a lot of political recrimination lately. Europe has its own very specific dialects, but they haven’t changed much; they’re still mostly about social programs. Russia and China produce doublespeak in Communist-Industrial quantities.
