I do believe in George Orwell's concept of "Newspeak"(from his novel "1984"), but all modern governments use it both on the left and the right. Even George Carlin would have a field day with it from time to time in his shows.

Here's a brief synopsis on Newspeak: www.berkes.ca

My all time favorite newspeak slogan was in the movie "Apocalypse Now" when the General and the CIA officer are debriefing Martin Sheen about his new mission to assassinate Col. Kurtz . Instead of plainly telling Martin Sheen something like "And make sure you to Kill his Azzz!" he says : "Terminate, with extreme prejudice."


(and yes that one soldier in the glasses is the young ,fairly unknown, actor Harrison Ford)

"Yeah for body shops."

Yeah these things scare me. I'd wait till they get all the bugs out, and this is also the future of Tractor Trailer trucks:


But hey, I know I'm old school here(like a consternated mounted cowboy, shaking his head, staring at a Ford Model T drive by). 50 years from now grandchildren will be asking stuff like:

"Hey Grandpa, tell us again about the days when people had to really drive their own cars!"
