First Post — Definition of Newthink

I’m new to blogging – I’ve got to find my way with this blog, figure out what I want to do with it.

First I think I’ll unloose some definitions and excerpts and take it from there.

As George Orwell illustrated, it’s hard to think about something if there’s no word for it. I created a lot of new words while writing Newthink. The first one forms the title:

newthink n : the progressive worldview

Under my definition, newthink is the worldview of progressivism. Or, to put the cart behind the horse where it belongs, progressivism is the social expression of newthink.

Americanism n : the traditional American worldview

Americanism was the traditional worldview of America. Traditional American culture was the social expression of Americanism.
