Control

For 3WW

To tamper with the truth
And court false tales
Is to narrate a history
engulfed in deceit,
thereby exposing one
to imminent threat.


Currently reading 1984 and so this came to mind....

1984 or 2010? Funny how true this is today. Your title caught my attn. cause I recently wrote a post with same title. Different subject but perhaps related given the current sorry state of affairs and political climate. THANK YOU!

Brilliant!

I think I missed something with my 3WW cause everyone has a lovely picture to go with their (fabulous) writing. Hmm... Love your post!

I've GOT to read that book. I've been meaning to.

I only glanced at the photo and thought it was Hitler and that the post was about recent events - denying the past. Powerful piece - Newspeak or Newsweek! :)

The Big Brother idea suits the words well.

Your next read should be "Oryx and Crake" by Margaret Atwood. Check it out!

1984 is a fabulous book, and the political correctness of newspeak could apply today.

"War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength."

Makes good sense to me.

Dreamer said...

Even though you were inspired by 1984, your words make absolute sense in 2010 too.

Popped over from Yvonne's blog to find out where the quote was from (now I know...1984!) and saw the Cyril Connelly quote in your header - laughed, as I have that exact quote taped to my laptop so I can see it every day! :)

Naturally when reading 1984 this is what you might think. Nice 3WW. Love and Light, Sender
