Banned Books Week: More of Orwell’s Words Newspeak - A fictional, controlled language created by a totalitarian state to limit free thought and an concepts that pose a threat. Forbidden words/concepts include freedom, self-expression, individuality, and peace. Any form of thought alternative to the Party’s construct is classified as a thoughtcrime. A good example of Newspeak is the Patriot Act, which is designed to control behavior/thought. The implication is that if you oppose the act (much less violate it), you can’t be a patriot. Doublethink – The act of simultaneously accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct. Related to hypocrisy and neutrality. Somewhat related to cognitive dissonance, where contradictory beliefs cause conflict in an individual’s mind. Doublethink, however, is notable due to a lack of cognitive dissonance. A person is completely unaware of any conflict or contradiction.

Last week the Board of Ed in Randolph County, NC voted 5-2 to ban the 1952 book The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. “I didn’t find any literary value," said one member of the Board. Really? This is a work that won the National Book Award in '53, and is one of the best-known books on black identity and--imagine this--black invisibility in America. In what could not be more perfect timing, this week is ALA's Banned Books Week. There's also another hearing on the ban in Randolph County on the 25th. Show your support by reading the book and educating yourself on the state of banned books in the country. (
