Orwell’s novel defines ‘Doublethink ‘ as the act of accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct. Some of the key slogans used by the repressive government in the book: War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength. Or, in our case today in America in 2020, Capitulating to Terrorism is Leadership; Standing up for our nation’s Sovereignty is Cowardness.
So here in Rochester, are we truly living In Orwell’s 1984?
Scrolling through the Minister for Agriculture (TX), Senator Sid Miller’s facebook page ( @millerfortexas ), I found some fascinating posts that do a great job of highlighting the dichotomy that our nation is facing at the moment. His support of @DonaldTrump is unwavering, but I truly believe it is based upon a firm foundation of common sense and not fuzzy logic, ie doublespeak.
Remember Rochester that if you are not thinking for yourself, then someone else is doing it for you. Here is a couple of posts you can read for yourself.
