The Ministry of Truth

The Ministry of Truth

You are the convincing voice of hypnotic propaganda, the as-truth-given announcements of our Western, free-liberal, façade-democratic, soft fascist regimes…
The daily sedative message launched to billions of human receivers, numbed, deprived of sense, sensitivity and sensation, incapable of own original meanings and therefore soulless and brainless…
… Human antennas then transformed into aggressors, into war-minded organisms with an orgasm for bombing

I don’t trust you, I don’t believe you, you don’t convince me
I don’t allow you to tell me WHO’S MY ENEMY
The enemy of the Ministry of Truth is not my enemy
for my enemy exists in your hypnotic propaganda
but I never met it, I never fought against it, I don’t even know its face
Don’t dare to come and break my peace
Governments, kings&queens, corporations, media&propaganda, privatized sectors…
These are my daily trouble, my fight for surviving, my trying-to-seduce-me enemy…

As a pacifist I decide my daily battle. Don’t spend my taxpayer’s money dropping bombs in the Orient, don’t attempt to buy my conscience for the approval of armies sent to the South. You are my enemy, Ministry of Truth. I have no enemies in the Orient and in the South, or anywhere else. My enemy is my friend

The Ministry of Truth, Minitrue in Newspeak, was startlingly different from any other object in sight. It was an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete, soaring up, terrace after terrace, three hundred meters into the air. From where we stood it was possible to read, picked out on its white face in elegant lettering, the three slogans of the Party:

WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
