Why Bush's America Feels Like Orwell's 1984
The closest thing to an admission of a "perception management" strategy came from a recent New York Times Magazine article, in which a senior advisor of the Bush Administration scoffed at Americans who exist in 'the reality based community," who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernable reality. That's not the way the world works anymore. We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality."

I never expected anyone to use 1984 as a textbook rather than a cautionary tale; Our current administration seems like the embryonic version of Big Brother.
