Doublethink-


Doublethink is a process of indoctrination whereby the subject is expected to accept as true that which is clearly false, or to simultaneously accept two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct, often in contravention to one's own memories or sense of reality.

Doublespeak is language that deliberately obscures, disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words.

Modern day example of doublethink:

Anti-racist.
