George Orwell will help me get my mind around it. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. Rinse and repeat. It is no accident, as they say, that the folks who are helping to organize a prayer vigil for Obamacare are also the modern masters of the Two Minutes Hate. No accident at all.
