Newthink‘s government metaphor is the Big Mother Government metaphor:
Big Mother Government Metaphor
• A Country is a Family.
• Government is the Mother.
• People are the Children.
While traditional Americans viewed government as if it were fire, newthink sees the country as a family and government as the mother. From the Big Mother Government metaphor grows unconscious beliefs like “the government should be compassionate to the people” and “the people should live equitably.”
