Hasn't that already been done? Based upon everyday observations,
something similar appears to have happened to a large percentage of
the population, alas. "Education" appears to be responsible. How's
that for doublespeak?

The instructor that I had for English 102 required the class to read
that Orwell book (_1984_) along with Ray Bradburry's _Fahrenheit 451_-
you may want to take a look at the later as well. The aforementioned
instructor is no longer alive.
