‘Doublethink’ is a form of indoctrination whereby the subject is forced, or coerced, into simultaneously accepting that two overtly contradictory beliefs are unquestionably true facts. The term was coined by Eric Arthur Blair, better known as “George Orwell,” via his seminal novel, ‘1984.’
Although 1984 is commonly described as a dystopian “fiction,” and commonly believed to depict a “Fascist” state, its predictions are disturbingly close to the postwar world system that was established by the arch nemeses of Fascism: The Allies, also known as the ‘United Nations.’ This world system is, ideologically, not Fascist in the slightest, but an explicitly ANTI-FAscist fusion of Socialism, Liberalism, and Marxism. 1984 is a scathing critique of the architects of this postwar civilization. Orwell believed that they were megalomaniacal traitors to the Socialist cause, whose only aim was the creation of a totalitarian world government, that was Socialist and Democratic in name but oligarchical in nature.
1984’s three warring empires — Eurasia (practicing ‘Neo-Bolshevism’), Eastasia (‘Death Worship’), and Oceania (‘English Socialism’) — were ideologically modeled on the Bolsheviks of Russia, Communists of China, and Fabian Socialists of the United Kingdom, respectively (with a large serving of Stalinism mixed in, for good measure). Orwell describes these ideologies as “Oligarchical Collectivism,” a term derived from “Bureaucratic Collectivism” — a Trotskyite critique of Stalinist Marxist-Leninism, describing a Communist state in which all profit is distributed among The Party bureaucracy, rather than the proletariat.

In 1984, Doublethink is part of the wider concept of ‘Newspeak,’ a fictional language invented by the ruling English Socialist Party (INGSOC) of Oceania. Newspeak was strategically designed to stop the masses from breaking free of INGSOC conditioning by restricting their ability to express and think “subversive” ideas. The iconic INGSOC party slogan — “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH” — is one of the most renowned examples of Doublethink, to date.
Newspeak was heavily inspired by Marxist indoctrination and propaganda techniques. Orwell considered Doublethink to be a staple feature of Bolshevik-style totalitarianism. “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY” bears a striking resemblance to the Marxist claim that a stateless Communist Utopia can only be achieved via a totalitarian dictatorship that would simply “wither away” after an arbitrary amount of time. Shockingly, this withering process hasn’t occurred in a single Communist society to date. They remain totalitarian dictatorships or collapse into starvation and ruin. Usually both.
Rewriting language and history is a common Marxist strategy. Orthodox Marxist intellectuals redefined the term “bourgeoisie” to conceal the fact that they themselves were objectively part of the bourgeois class. Similarly, postwar Western Marxists redefined “proletarian” to mean “a person who is non-White or part of the LGBT,” and developed a range of Newspeak terminology: “Institutional Racism, Microaggression, White Fragility, Whiteness, etc.” Bolsheviks, such as Lenin and Trotsky, redefined ‘racism’ — the act of acknowledging that different human races exist and possess unique characteristics — as an act of “oppression.” All Leftist political discourse is an intricate web of self-referential gobbledygook, designed to bamboozle the masses, impress the intellectually insecure, and obfuscate their true intentions.
In 1984, Doublethink is forced onto the masses via carrot-and-stick techniques: Those who regurgitate INGSOC rhetoric gain social status and climb The Party ranks, while those who question it are socially ostracized and subjected to disciplinary brainwashing procedures. To expose the glaring contradictions in Doublethink is akin to blasphemy.
Sound familiar? Modern Globalists use identical techniques to enforce their own insanely contradictory propaganda: Threats of extreme social ostracization (“cancel culture”), termination of employment, disciplinary brainwashing (“diversity seminars”), denial of vital services (such as access to banking), and so on. The West is now at a Soviet-level of indoctrination, whereby Leftists are reporting their family and friends to the FBI for wrongthink. One teenager even reported her own mother, publicly shaming her while sharing footage of her mother being violently attacked, covered in her own blood.
An individual can be “canceled” for life if they express even the slightest of doubts regarding any of the following Doublethink beliefs:
- God is fake and evolution is real, but race is fake and all humans are biologically/genetically identical.
- Diversity and immigration are our greatest strengths and we desperately need more of both to “culturally enrich” our societies, but White people are not being intentionally replaced via mass migration (even though the UN & Friends call this agenda ‘Replacement Migration’).
- BLM/ANTIFA riots that specifically call for violent revolution are actually peaceful protests that are necessary for social progress and supported by the entire global establishment, but boomers walking around the capitol while taking selfies is “White supremacist domestic terrorism” and the “worst terror attack since 9/11.”
- Empowering women and promoting female equality and miscegenation is an act of genocide when the Chinese Empire does it to Muslim Uyghur minorities, but wonderful social progress when Globalists and Leftists do it to Europeans.
- All European history was built upon evil patriarchal White supremacist colonialist imperialism, but the Vikings were transgender, Roman Italy was a diverse multi-racial paradise, and the ancient Greeks were all homosexuals.
- White countries cause the most “climate change” due to industrialization and overpopulation, but we need to import an infinite amount of “climate refugees” into White countries to save them from the climate change that white countries cause by being overpopulated and industrialized.
- Etc., etc.
[Below: A few examples of doublethink from Western mainstream media]
The entire West is saturated with Doublethink. It is the defining characteristic of the postwar global order. The contradictions in Globalists’ public-facing ideology are so glaringly obvious that it’s impossible to believe that they aren’t intentionally flaunting their deception. So, the question is: Why? Why do they drown the masses in this torrent of contradictory nonsense, and why do they make no attempt to conceal their blatant lies?
Firstly, this bombardment of disinformation serves to obscure the end goals of Globalism. Once again, consider the “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY” agenda of 20th Century Orthodox Marxism: Its publicly advertised end goal is the creation of a superabundant, technologically advanced, stateless, atheistic, nationless, familyless, world-wide utopia, inhabited by freely-associated individuals, whereby every man co-operates in perfect harmony based on his individual needs. Any sane, semi-intelligent individual can easily recognize that this is a delusional fantasy, on par with the ramblings of a lunatic asylum schizophrenic. So, what is the purpose of Orthodox Marxism? Simple: It is an ideological tool designed to overthrow an existing ruling elite, and create a highly-centralized, totalitarian dictatorship to secure the position of the new ruling class. Marxist ideology was created and championed by bourgeois intellectuals and international finance capitalists, people who were envious of the power held by the entrenched European aristocracy and wished to take it for themselves. The utopian dream is nothing more than a scam, designed to trick the lower-class masses into exterminating their current elite and replacing them with a fresh Marxist oligarchy. And, invariably, the new oligarchy repays the masses who put them in power with genocide, starvation, and the complete obliteration of their religion and culture.
The same applies to the publicly advertised agenda of modern Globalists: They talk of racial and gender “equality” and “emancipation,” but their end goal is the total destruction of all nationalities and the abolition of the family — both of which are vital to the creation of their singular world empire.
The entire Globalist agenda hinges on preventing normal people from understanding what they are doing to our societies and why, and where they plan to take us in the future. Without controlling the flow of information and pumping the masses’ brains with as much nonsensical disinformation as possible, Globalists would be utterly incapable of world-domination. This is why they first took control of the media, and then academia. A society that has lost control of its own propaganda engines and the minds of its children is as good as conquered. Conversely, if Globalists lost control of their soft power (the media, academia, etc.), their hard power (the military, police, judiciary system, etc.) would melt away overnight. Without their information warfare, a civilization-scale revolution against Globalism would arise within no time at all.
However, this being said, all of the above pertains to information warfare, in general, and not specifically to Doublethink. The fundamental purpose of Doublethink in particular is to engineer a state of collective Controlled Insanity:
“In our society, those who have the best knowledge of what is happening are also those who are furthest from seeing the world as it is. In general, the greater the understanding, the greater the delusion; the more intelligent, the less sane. […] The official ideology abounds with contradictions even when there is no practical reason for them. Thus, the Party rejects and vilifies every principle for which the Socialist movement originally stood, and it chooses to do this in the name of Socialism. It preaches a contempt for the working class unexampled for centuries past, and it dresses its members in a uniform which was at one time peculiar to manual workers and was adopted for that reason. It systematically undermines the solidarity of the family, and it calls its leader by a name which is a direct appeal to the sentiment of family loyalty. Even the names of the four Ministries by which we are governed exhibit a sort of impudence in their deliberate reversal of the facts. The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture, and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy; they are deliberate exercises in DOUBLETHINK. For it is only by reconciling contradictions that power can be retained indefinitely. In no other way could the ancient cycle be broken. If human equality is to be forever averted — if the High, as we have called them, are to keep their places permanently — then the prevailing mental condition must be controlled insanity.”George Orwell – 1984
Consider the psychological damage that Doublethink inflicts upon an individual. Victims of this indoctrination live in a permanent state of psychosis, completely incapable of distinguishing truth from fiction and fantasy from reality. Doublethink is part of a massive MK-Ultra-style social engineering operation; psychological abuse on a civilization-scale, designed to create a new breed of man: Traumatized, demoralized, docile, permanently terrified and confused, and, most importantly, utterly subservient to the Globalist system and the elites who control it. Controlled Insanity is the ideal condition to facilitate totalitarian slavery. Globalists can feed these hapless, broken individuals all of the bullshit in the world and they’ll gladly swallow it, no matter how insane or contradictory it is. They won’t lift a finger in resistance to Globalist tyranny. Many will welcome their own enslavement, and many will even sacrifice their own lives to defend it.
