    Posted on an irresponsible breeding thread. No truer words ever spoken.

    "It was as though some huge force were pressing down upon you — something that penetrated inside your skull, battering against your brain, frightening you out of your beliefs, persuading you, almost, to deny the evidence of your senses. In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. " --George Orwell, 1984

    It seemed fitting. Also, don't most people study Orwell in high school?

    Then there is this, also from the same novel:
    “Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”

    “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?”
