Life, Liberty, and the Firearms that protect them both

Orwell exercise

leave a comment »

This is a pretty simple mental exercise.  First, go read this editorial written by George Orwell during World War II about the English pacifists.

Then, read it again, but mentally insert the prefix “Islamo” in front of every instance of the words Fascist or Fascism and substitute “al Qaeda” and “Taliban” for Nazi and Germany.

I used to be against the War on Terror, until I realized that giving it up would still leave Terror’s War on Us.

To go back to Orwell again, “The quickest way of ending a war is to lose it. “
