Author Paul Orwell predicts that after losing the House in the midterm elections, Big Trump will—using the language of 1984—make a flurry of decrees to confuse opponents and implement his manifesto.
“As we saw in 2016, when confronted with facts, Big Trump will simply deny them. Instead he will shirk his responsibilities, shift the blame, and attempt to rectify the record, declaring victory after suffering a defeat, and making several dayorders, some of which may be blackwhite or contradictory.”
Big Trump has many times spoken of mutability and shapeliness of truth and I predict that he will appoint Alex Jones to the Ministry of Truth (formerly the National Archives and Records Administration). Jones will revise the historical record according to a newly-implemented truth-fake axis. The Records Department (Recdep) at 1515 Pennsylvania Avenue will increase its supply of corrected information to media organs in the United States of America. In all media, “fake news” will be replaced with goodthink.
Memory holes will be widely distributed to State Governments so records of election results can be conveniently disposed of.
At the Ministry of Love, General Sessions will be declared an unperson and replaced by Stoogey Graham. Michael Moore, Jimmy Kimmel and Chris Hayes will be declared Enemies of the State. Books by Stephen King will be burned.
Comrade DeVos will introduce the zero-sum game into the school system which will deprecate facts and learning, and emphasize the importance of winners and losers. 2 + 2 = 5 will also be taught.
Comrade Sanders will introduce a Two-Minute Press Hate (distributed by State-Sponsored Fox News via telescreens to proles) immediately prior to White House briefings.
Kanye West will head the Ministry of Truth’s Fiction Department, pornosec.
The Department of Homeland Security will be renamed The Ministry of Peace and tens of thousands of Peace Officers will be hired and despatched to the borders. “There will be so much love out it won’t be believed! Incredible!!” Big Trump announced. Anyone who crosses Oceania’s borders without correct documentation will be transported to joycamps.
The war with Eurasia will be declared over. Simultaneously, a new war with Eastasia will be started. Eastasia will be the enemy and will always have been the enemy.
There will be changes to Newspeak itself. The period will be deprecated in favor of single exclamation mark (neutral), double exclamation mark (good) and triple exclamation mark (doubleplusgood). In addition “bigly” will be officially added to Newspeak (adverb, super big), as will “yuge” (adjective, bigger than “bigly.”)
Paul Orwell, a writer and businessman, has lived in New York, Moscow and Washington DC and yearns for an era where Newspeak is abolished and the world can return to political conversation and bi-partisan compromise.
