Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness. To know and to not know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it. Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they they have rebelled they cannot become conscious. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the Truth.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the Truth? Woe to those who call evil good.
They’re runners, they look for a way out. What if we’re sent here for a reason? He knew he had a lot to learn—that was why he was asking questions. You’re not like the others - you’re curious. What’s so special about seven? That must be where it comes from. Wicked is good. (“This oxymoron is a prime example of doublethink, and serves as a type of propaganda tool for WICKED. Of course, as seen throughout the series, WICKED is indeed wicked, with the organization performing very few good deeds”) Everything’s going to change. The maze isn’t what we thought it was. It’s a test. We established order, made peace. They were experimenting on us (Mk Ultra). Finish what you started. We are leaving. We don’t belong here. This place isn’t our home. We were put here. We can make it out of here. I know that.
Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.
“If you were a U.S. leader, or an official of the National Security State, or a beneficiary of the private military and surveillance industries, why would you possibly want the war on terror to end? That would be the worst thing that could happen. It’s that war that generates limitless power, impenetrable secrecy, an unquestioning citizenry, and massive profit.” (Glenn Greenwald, The “war on terror" by design - can never end, January 4, 2013).
The military industrial complex has grown into the terror industrial complex.
“"All past oligarchies have fallen from power either because they ossified or because they grew soft. ailed to adjust themselves to changing circumstances, and were overthrown; or they became liberal and cowardly, made concessions when they should have used force, and once again were overthrown. … It is in the ranks of the Party, and above all the Inner Party, that the true war enthusiasm is found. If human equality is to be for ever averted — if the High, as we have called them, are to keep their places permanently — then the prevailing mental condition must be controlled insanity. The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is to keep the very structure of society intact. The very word ‘war’, therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist…War is Peace.” - 1984
