PostSubject: Romnecabulary???   Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:51 pm

Picked up a couple of new words browsing facebook a bit ago:

Romnesia - having selective amnesia over past statements and policy stands
Romstalgia - "a pathological desire to return to the foreign policies of the 80's, the social policies of the 50's and the economic policies of the20's"

I thought of one of my own:

Romneythink - as in Orwell's "doublethink." There is an entire Wiki page explaining this one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doublethink

Quote :
The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them... To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.
from George Orwell's novel, 1984
