"Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it."
George Orwell
[Eric Arthur Blair] (1903-1950) British author
George Orwell's '1984', 1949

Reader comments about this quote:
Leftists are eliminating the word "republic" from our vocabulary as part of their successful efforts to sell the lie that our republic is a "wonderful democracy".  In truth, de-mob-ocracy is an evil form of government which allows a simple majority to vote your money into my pocket.

    By example, words starting with "L" don't mean the same: liberty, law, liberal, license and love are all defined and applied differently than in 1776. Religion's definition has been changed to allow merging the laws of nature and of nature's God with religion to create the current occupying statist theocracy now infesting this land. Using the word "government", because there was no word meaning individual sovereigns uniting over a republic of servants that uniquely served and protected personal inalienable rights and liberty, has devolved into forms of enslavement. Who can conceptualize a body politic with individual relations that do not include compelled compliance, government license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (such as the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.) and centralized ownership of all property and ownership and administration of the means of production.

    Sorry, I haven't the ability to read  minds, telepathy or any other supernatural devices. I don't think these processes exist. Science is my device and I have to rely heavily on the educated guess.

    Sillik, by not fully expressing your misdirection / redefinition of words, you mislead your message. You failed to mention the "science" you heavily rely on is a degenerated political science  NOT biological / natural / physical science. By an extreme terse example, Many major governments around the word study and experiment in remote viewing. Police departments have used psychics to find crime scenes and dead bodies. Nothing to do with religion or spiritual actions but rather, understanding and applying natural science. It is obvious you rely heavily on guesses from a deviated political science
