Bush: “I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system”

It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. “Reality control,” they called it: in Newspeak, “doublethink.” - George Orwell (1984)

Yesterday on CNN used yet another line of doublethink when during an interview- while visually flustered/strained- said he has “abandoned free market principles to save the free market system”. This logic is just pure idiotic words from a beat down leader who is doing everything he can to save his legacy. Sure he does not want to be the next Hoover (though I have argued that he actually is), but that only provides a level of explanation, not an excuse. The video below, curtousy of the far left blog Think Progress shows his statement-

This use of language where a leader states that he/she must “destroy or limit” something in order to perserve it is yet another disturbing global trend, especially in the United Kingdom and United States. How much longer will the masses buy into the government propoganda that says we must “give up freedom to be free”?
