  •  Doublethink. (6+ / 0-)

    And some insinuate that Orwell is CT, every day, on this very site.

    Doublethink is the act of ordinary people simultaneously accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct, often in distinct social contexts.[1] Doublethink is related to, but differs from, hypocrisy and neutrality. Somewhat related but almost the opposite is cognitive dissonance, where contradictory beliefs cause conflict in one's mind. Doublethink is notable due to a lack of cognitive dissonance — thus the person is completely unaware of any conflict or contradiction. - wikipedia
    emphasis added.

    Doublethink. An unwitting apologia for plutocracy. No sociopathy intended...

    NO election gate-crashing will stop the raging Class, Climate and Terror Wars. THAT will take unprecedented public dissent & direct action. If you're satisfied with our "progress," then, by all means, please proceed with polishing the gates.
