NewSpeak, American-Style
For those of you who aren't George Orwell fans, I vaguely recall NewSpeak as the term used in the book 1984 to describe the way that Big Brother manipulated the use of language to control thought in that imaginary facist culture. Keep that in mind as you read this article about the insidious new form of pro-war propaganda that's going to be coming to a multiplex near you, whether you like it or not. This, like so many of these kinds of ventures, is also funded by yet another insanely rich, old white man with very strong feelings about right-wing conservative politics. Somebody should get these guys some therapy.
