"Freedom is Slavery"
This is the second in a series of pieces inspired by Nineteen Eighty-Four. I wanted to do a series that was based on the three slogans of the party, and how they related to current events.
"Freedom is Slavery"... I contemplated a few people for this. Hitler. Stalin. The President of Iran. I may still do that last one. For now, I wanted to focus on the United States and recent events in America. Who better than Dick Cheney?
Since leaving elected office, he has been one of Obama's most vocal critics. Ironic considering the fact that he spent his 8 years as Vice President doing all he could to limit the rights and freedoms of American's! The chief architect on "The War on Terror", he also helped to keep as much hidden from Americans as possible.
To him, Freedom is Slavery. Slavery to the will of others that would, in the end, seek for the same rights and freedom of others.
