He Said That? 9/2/18

This seemed appropriate after John McCain’s funeral. From George Orwell (1903–1950), English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic, 1984 (1949):

The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink.
