Putin’s brazen manipulation of language is a perfect example of Orwellian doublespeak

Doublespeak has always been Scott Morrison’s primary weapon. However he applies it so badly it simply comes out as a lie. Taxes aren’t taxes, they’re “efficiency reviews”. “Keeping Australians Safe” is all about the  creation of fear enabling increased control over things that aren’t even happening.  Giving us freedom is Morrison’s excuse for doing nothing “not holding the hose” etc etc.  “On the water matters” was his classic response for ” not answering” questions. In fact Trump Putin and Morrison are the same all doublespeakers. Anthony Albanese or Albo on the other hand has a history of calling a spade a shovel faces and interprets the facts and gets on with the job when either in government or in opposition. He believes consensus negotiated decisions are part and parcel of a progressive democracy

Doublespeak is a tool in the arsenal of tyranny. It is one of Putin’s weapons of choice, as it is for many authoritarians and would-be authoritarians around the world. As Orwell warned: “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”The Conversation
