"Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death."
As Comrade Citizen J has noted elsewhere in this forum, Orwell's 1984 is actually a blueprint, "cleverly disguised as a book", for the creation of the inevitable totalitarian state. It details all of the techniques that we and our fellow travelers have been using to control thought and crush individualism in order to promote true progressive collectivism.
But, by all means, please send me a copy of Dude, Where's My Country?--as I've often wondered the same thing. Be sure to use the government post office, not one of those capitalist shipping entities!

You've gotta learn to read between the lines.
Repeat after me: 2 + 2 = 5.
Wow, that Jihad E has really had an effect on me!
Keepin' it real as always,
...if you think O.J. was guilty.
...if you think Martha Stewart was NOT guilty. (corrected by Red Eye)
That's a horrible thought crime, Citizen Betty, to think that Martha Stewart was not guilty. She was guilty already when she hired her first employee and made first capitalistic profit by exploiting that poor person. The rest of her life is too horrible to contemplate. We generally oppose death penalty (until the revolution arrives) but in Martha Stewart's case the Party is willing to make an exception. Remember - developing class envy and encouraging the People to count other People's money are important elements in conditioning Americans for the revolution.
Your title of the Kommissar is suspended until you repent and undergo a series of self-criticism sessions with an outpatient gulag program at the Karl Marx Treatment Center.
I am sorry for that mistake, I thought that all the cult groups that worship Martha Stewart in their insanity could be used as useful idiots by us to quicken the comming of the revolution. After several sessions of self-criticism classes I understand my mistake and feel horrible for making it.

There was no election. We have never heard of such an event happening since Bush's government takeover in 2000.

Hoping the will redeem me, leading only to being sent to my gulag without dinner and short course of re-edukation, rather than purged outright....
Seriously, may I suggest, as a compromise, "neo-classical liberalism" as propounded by the eminent economist-philosopher F. A. Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty and other great works.
Why else do we need a Dictatorship of the Proletariate? We must take care of the weak (minded) and the lame (brained).
. . . you would take life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ANYDAY over liberte egalite fraternite.
On my first day at school, my teacher, Ms. Primwhistle asked each of the children what they had brought to school that day. Since it was the first schoolday none of the other children had brought any goodies for recess. Ms. Primwhistle then began talking about the value of sharing. How the world would be a better place if we all shared what we had. No wars, no poverty, no misery, no hatred, all love and understanding.
Then she approached me and asked "Philo, wouldn't you like to share your gummie bears with the rest of the class?"
I looked up and smiled and said "F**k off Primwhistle you haggy Commie slut, I don't share sh*t with nobody. You want 'em? Try takin' 'em"!

(on a personal note, this is my first ever post! Been a silent fan for ages of the fine work of the comrades here, may the smile of Lenin be upon you and pleased to meet you all)
Welcome Comrade! Relax and just go with the collective flow. We're not judging anyone here, just watching intensely. Judgement will be made by the revolutionary tribunals at a later stage.
