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."

"Yeah for body shops."

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!"
