Facebook and Newspeak


  Don’t you see the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expresses in exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.
  
  …every year, fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller…


– George Orwell, 1984
