Today's Orwell

The mind should develop a blind spot whenever a dangerous thought presented itself.

Crimestop, they called it in Newspeak.

It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments ... of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction.
--George Orwell, 1984
