Liberalism leads to doublethink

Doublethink is simultaneously accepting 2 contradictory beliefs as correct, often in distinct social contexts.Doublethink is related to, but differs from, hypocrisy. Also related is cognitive dissonance, in which contradictory beliefs cause conflict in one's mind. Doublethink is notable due to a lack of cognitive dissonance, and the person is unaware of any conflict or contradiction.

George Orwell created the word doublethink in his dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (published in 1949); doublethink is part of newspeak. In the novel, its origin within the typical citizen is unclear; while it could be partly a product of Big Brother's formal brainwashing programmes, the novel explicitly shows people learning doublethink and newspeak due to peer pressure and a desire to "fit in", or gain status within the Party, to be seen as a loyal Party Member. For someone to recognize, let alone mention any contradiction within the context of the Party line was blasphemy
