alert to injustice in society, especially racism
a couple totally alert to any form of criticism
Here and now, right here in the free world, newspeak is the euphemistic, mealy mouthed language routinely used by politicians, government officials, and left-liberal pressure groups. It’s a bunch of words, phrases, and attitudes that are intentionally difficult to understand, and / or does not mean what it seems to mean. The whole point is to confuse and deceive ‘ordinary people’.
In Nineteen Eighty-Four a totalitarian state wields total power over its own citizens, ‘for their own good’. It’s all about surveillance, propaganda, and control ~ it’s all about quashing any thought or opinion that does not agree with that of the righteous.
This is exactly what we have right here and now, right here in England. And, looking from here, I’d have to say that you have it worse in the USA.
There are some things that we are told we must believe in; man-made global warming, green energy, LGBTQ+ rights, feminism, critical race theory, the coronavirus pandemic, vegetarianism, and the prevalence of extreme right-wing terrorism. (I may have missed out two or three things that Californians passionately believe we should all believe in.)
For me, the phrase that perfectly encompasses the whole of modern Newspeak is Climate Change Denial ~ which is spat out in much the same way as Holocaust Denial used to be. Oh, and of course, the use of that word Trump.
Here in England the chief propagandists for the woke newspeak mindset are; the BBC, the Church, Universities, Big Charities, the Labour and Liberal political parties, sections of the press, and sadly our very own Prime Minister Boris Johnson. All of which are quite unpopular with people like me, the ‘silent majority’ who actually have all the money these people need if they want to keep on pushing their woke agendas.
But you know what? We vote with our feet and our wallets, and all of those with a woke left-liberal agenda are hemorrhaging support and going broke.
