You’ve probably seen the bumper stickers that say, “Don’t like abortion? Don’t have one!” Perhaps during the slavery debate in our country, a similar bumper sticker could have read, “Don’t like slavery?

My Take - Another example of Orwellian "Newspeak" from Orwell's 1984, which is defined as "ambiguous euphemistic language used chiefly in political propaganda." Here are some examples: "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength" Twisting the common meaning of words and thoughts in order to redefine everything into something never intended are part and parcel of leftism, including "thought police". "The .......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. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten." (1.5.23, Syme)

If we could only get people to read.
