The threat to bomb Syria was a great example of "political language" being used to justify war for peace. That great Obama moment supported by the French and almost British reminded me of George Orwell's 1984:
Ignorance is strength.”
I wrote about it in an earlier post.
But I also realised during a dinner party conversation that while Orwell was writing about totalitarian regimes, the irony is that this kind of totalitarian propaganda actually applies to modern capitalistic liberal democracies!
What an irony!
