In George Orwell’s masterpiece, “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” he writes:
In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy.
The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable – what then?
We’re not yet at that point in America where you will be literally murdered by the mainstream media and the political Left for arguing that two and two do not make five. Nevertheless, should your answer be four, a contract by CNN, MSNBC, Salon, The New York Times, Washington Post, The Daily Beast, etc. will be put out against your reputation and political aspirations.
