1984 Is America And European Nations Under Political Correctness

As In 1984

Freedom of speech and thought that
doesn't conform to
Zionism and the Bolshevik
leftist Is condemned. History that doesn't
meet the politically correct belief system Is
whitewashed, changed or vilified. Citizens are
punished for thought crimes.

This Is America, Canada, Australia,
New Zealand and Europe today. In these
nations, It Is 1984.

- The official language of Oceania. Newspeak is "politically
correct" speech taken to its maximum extent. Newspeak is based on
standard English, but all words describing "unorthodox" political
ideas have been removed. In addition, there was an attempt to
remove the overall number of words in general, to limit the
range of ideas that could be expressed.

The most important aim of newspeak was to provide a means
of speaking that required no thought what-so-ever. It uses
abbreviations or clipped conjunctions in order to mask or alter
a word's true meaning. For example, words such as Miniluv and
joycamp, allow the speaker to speak without actually being force
to think about what they were talking about.. or at least, not as
much as if they were required to use complete phrases such as
"Ministry of Love" or "Forced Labor Camp". These words just
roll right off the lips before the speaker can even contemplate
what he is really saying.

Reducing the number of words also removes any literary value
to writing, because there would only be one distinct way to present
any particular concept. It would be impossible to write a book like
Common Sense , Uncle Tom's Cabin, or even 1984 in Newspeak. Not
only would the correct words for certain concepts not be available,
but a lack of adjectives would cause the writing would be completely
bland and unemotional, which in itself would keep people from
reading at all.

blackwhite- The ability to accept whatever "truth" the party
puts out, no matter how absurd it may be. Orwell described it
as "...loyal willingness to say black is white when party discipline
demands this. It also means the ability to believe that black is
white, and more, to know black is white, and forget that one
has ever believed the contrary."

crimethink - To even consider any thought not in line with the
principles of Ingsoc. Doubting any of the principles of Ingsoc. All
crimes begin with a thought. So, if you control thought, you can
control crime. "Thoughtcrime is death. Thoughtcrime does not
entail death, Thoughtcrime is death.... The essential crime that
contains all others in itself."

facecrime - Orwell's definition : "It was terribly dangerous to
let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or
within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you
away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of
muttering to yourself -- anything that carried with it the suggestion
of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear
an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a
victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable
offence. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it
was called."

goodthinker - One who strongly adheres to all of the principles
of Newspeak. (goodthinked, goodthink, goodthinked, goodthinking,
goodthinkful, goodthinking, goodthinkful, goodthinkwise,

memory hole - A system of pipes, similar to pneumatic tubes,
which were used to destroy documents. A document stuffed in
the memory hole would be conveniently whisked away to the
furnaces below - quickly & easily wiped from history.

Oldspeak - Standard English. Newspeak is based on Oldspeak, with
all words which represent unpopular (or politically incorrect) ideas

oldthink - Holding on to old ideas and patterns of thought not
consistent with current government policy (Ingsoc). Maintaining a
belief that is no longer acceptable, but was normal just a few years

oldthinkers - Those who engage in oldthink Those who have not
fully accepted the new Ingsoc way of thinking.

unperson - Person that has been erased from existence by the
government for breaking the law in some way. A unperson is
completely erased from history. All records of their existence is
removed from record, and all party members are expected to
removed them from memory. To mention their name is considered
thoughtcrime. This eliminates any possibility of martyrdom.
