We are living doublethink


For those of you who aren’t sure what just happened that led to our current situation of Donald Trump poised to pounce on the White House and grab it by the pussy, let me explain.
“His mind slid away into the labyrinthian world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly forget it again, and above all to apply the same process to the process itself.” – 1984, George Orwell
Don’t be so confused, we have been warned about it several times in history. It is just now becoming reality because you voted it in, and are now asking us to “give it a chance.”

  1. I never did read the book. As always I was waiting for the movie! Didn’t know it was going to be 4yrs. long! I do understand what is between the quotes.
