Thoughts Of Hell

[Posted by reader_iam]

I interrupt your--and my--regularly scheduled Saturday morning activities to share my latest thought from the fiery pits of my more so-called Orwellian fears ("so-called" because "Orwellian" is often used in the opposite way from what Orwell's overarching point was):

I'm beginning to think the meaning of the word "informed," as in "people need to be informed," has now morphed into "of the right opinions," as in "people must come to the same conclusions or they are not of the right opinions." Not to mention stupid and sheeplike.

This is a broad-brush musing, intended and directed generally, without regard to political persuasion(s).

Now, as you were.
