George Orwell Quote

“Political language -- and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists -- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”

By way of example, the political language: "court of law" is an erroneous red haring being designed to make lies sound truthful. Such courts would be identified as "courts of justice" where "the laws of nature and of nature's God" (Declaration of Independence) were breached. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's judiciary has little to nothing to do with the de jure established jurisprudence. Said judiciary is in reality only an enforcement branch of a criminal and arbitrary philosophy.
