SOUDER: Are we living in 2011or 1984?

-A A +A

From what we hear about the federal deficit and the debt ceiling, it's hard to tell.

By Chuck Souder

In 1950, when George Orwell penned his classic book Nineteen Eighty-Four, he envisioned a future where government officials communicated only through deliberately ambiguous or evasive language. Webster’s defines Orwell’s supposedly fictional future language, called “Newspeak,” as “propagandistic language marked by euphemism, circumlocution and the inversion of customary meanings.”

I am afraid that Orwell was only a few years off with his timeline and that his scenario has arrived in 2011 America.
