Contract is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength

It will probably never cease to amaze me that people of all kinds of political persuasions so eagerly and so easily buy into the practice of describing the voluntary, contractual society as "atomistic", "individualistic", "egocentric" or "selfish", while at the same time describing the society based on the divisive principle of coercive wealth transfers and the parasitic principle of making successful entrepreneurs into expendable milk cows as "cohesive", "brotherly", "compassionate" and "caring".

If there is a perfect example of how unabashed propaganda, unreflective repetition, wishful ignorance or subconscious self-deceit can usher into existence and keep in circulation even the most flagrant Orwellianisms, then I suppose it has to be it.
