Daily Chain Pull: 1984 in Seattle (Cherchez le Juif)

First, read this:

From the essay “Principles of Newspeak” from the Appendix of Orwell’s “1984”:

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of IngSoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible. It was intended that when Newspeak had been adopted once and for all and Oldspeak forgotten, a heretical thought — that is, a thought diverging from the principles of IngSoc — should be literally unthinkable, at least so far as thought is dependent on words. Its vocabulary was so constructed as to give exact and often very subtle expression  to every meaning that a Party member could properly wish to express, while excluding all other meaning and also the possibility of arriving at them by indirect methods. This was done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words and stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings, and so far as possible of all secondary meaning whatever.”

Then, this:

Bronstein: “Citizen!? How RACIST! Howsabout…uh…’goy’? Er…I mean..’RESIDENT!'”

“For example, member Elliot Bronstein(!) says, “for ‘citizens,’ how about ‘residents?” Bronstein also told KOMO by phone that the term “brown bag” used to be a way people judged skin color and shouldn’t be used the way it is now. City leaders typically use “brown bag” when talking about “brown bag” lunch meetings — an opportunity to bring one’s own lunch to a city event, “



  1. LOL! “Brown bag”?
    Are you serious?
