I have realized recently that sometimes words are not able to convey the true meaning of our thougths. Whilst it is stated that we would not be able to communicate without them, what purpose can they have if they are misrepresentations of our desires? I am not preposterous to suggest that they should be obliterated, for indeed communication would be impossible. Nevertheless, I state firmly that an alternate means of expressing ourselves is necessary.
Regardless of such tedious thoughts, I must confess that I was really looking forward to writing something clever. Unfortunately, I feel completely maladroit. I am reluctant to accept this fact and thus I look for excuses. Perhaps a hackneyed phrased would be to say that I have no inspiration…Therefore…Inspiration, where are you when I need you most?
“Don’t you see that 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 expressed by 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”
