War is peace (USA politics)

Postby Abdul Alhazred » Wed Apr 11, 2018 9:18 am

Have you heard the expression "war on terror" lately? From any politician of any stripe?

Any promises in the last presidential election to win it once and for all, or maybe just "end" it?

OTOH, do you recall hearing that it was over? No?

Of course not. We still have all those emergency wartime measures in place.

A whole generation has grown up thinking this {!#%@} is normal.

"War is peace" amirite? ;)

Why not? Truth is fake news, stupidity is virtuous, treason is patriotic.

"War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength."

From George Orwell's 1984:

If one can be taught to believe absurdities, one can commit atrocities. --Voltaire
