Orthodoxy is Unconsciousness

"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? . . . By the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now? . . . The whole climate of thought will be different.  In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking--not needing to think.  Orthodoxy is unconsciousness."
- George Orwell (1903-1950)
