In George Orwell’s “1984”, Big Brother’s slogan was:
War Is Peace
Freedom Is Slavery
Ignorance Is Strength
Orwell’s point was that people can be made to believe just about anything if they hear it often enough. Through slogans backed by government force, all citizens in “1984” are kept in line, conforming to the point where they are virtually mindless, ready to accept any slogan as fact.
Of course, this could never happen in today’s America, because people’s minds are kept razor sharp through such intellectual TV fare as “The Profit,” “Ax Men,” “The Apprentice,” and “Swamp People.”
So don’t be messin’ with us, Mr. Putin. Your boobs don’t impress us, and we ain’t like those mindless folks in George Orwell’s novel. Besides, our government takes real good care of us … real good. We don’t even have to work if we don’t want to.
