In keeping with the principles of Newspeak, all of the words listed here serve as both nouns and verbs; thus, crimethink is both the noun meaning "thoughtcrime" and the verb meaning "to commit thoughtcrime". To form an adjective, one adds the suffix "-ful" (e.g., crimethinkful) and to form an adverb, "-wise" (e.g., crimethinkwise). There are some irregular forms, such as the adjectival forms of Minitrue, Minipax, Miniplenty, and Miniluv (Ministry of Truth, Ministry of Peace, Ministry of Plenty, and Ministry of Love, respectively – all ministries of the active government in Nineteen Eighty-Four).

Newspeak is the language of Oceania, a fictional totalitarian state and the setting of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), by George Orwell. To meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism (Ingsoc) in Oceania, the ruling Party created Newspeak, [1] a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought — personal identity, self-expression, free will — that threatens the ideology of the régime of Big Brother and the Party, who have criminalized such concepts into thoughtcrime, as contradictions of Ingsoc orthodoxy.

Newspeak is the language of Oceania

Ah yes, Newspeak. Welcome to the land where "the Nazis were leftists", "Goebbels was an open Marxist", and if you disagree with me you therefore hate Jews.

Gender Neutral / Gender Inclusive Pronouns

A gender neutral or gender inclusive pronoun is a pronoun which does not associate a gender with the individual who is being discussed.

Some languages, such as English, do not have a gender neutral or third gender pronoun available, and this has been criticized, since in many instances, writers, speakers, etc. use “he/his” when referring to a generic individual in the third person. Also, the dichotomy of “he and she” in English does not leave room for other gender identities, which is a source of frustration to the transgender and gender queer communities.

People who are limited by languages which do not include gender neutral pronouns have attempted to create them, in the interest of greater equality.

Berkeley Removes Gendered Words Such as ‘Manhole’ from Its City Codes

The city of Berkeley, Calif., is going to replace all gendered words in its city codes — such as “manpower” and “manhole” — with gender-neutral ones such as “human effort” and “maintenance hole.”

It will also replace all gender-specific pronouns (like “she” and “he”) with “they.”

The new ordinance passed easily and without discussion, according to a piece in CNN.

Facebook Jail

Those standards include a laundry list of things that make sense including (but not limited to):

Violence and Criminal Behavior

Credible Violence

Integrity and Authenticity

Coordinating Harm

However, there’s an item near the bottom of their list that stands out:

Objectionable Content

The problem with calling something “objectionable” is that everyone objects to something.

This is simply about taste: some people will find it amusing, others will not. When you censor taste/preference, you’re heading into dangerous territory.

Now that's funny seeing Trump and the right do none of these things, while the left acts like 1984 is its playbook.

🤣🤣🤣

Trump and the right do none of these things

Which, following the inverse square rule which summarises the accuracy of everything you write, means Trump does all of those things.

Except that Trump literally has no new, created language he demands everyone else apply, nor does he censor opposing thoughts and use a "facebook prison" for anyone who uses "wrong" language.
