Orwell would be unsurprised at this alternate version of his observation (if it was truly his to begin with). It's just the other side of the coin.
How truly bizarre that when I went to search for the original Orwell quote, "Truth is treason in the empire of lies", almost every search result was from a "conservative" site- many of them "Tea Party" related. Yet, who is most angry at Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden for revealing truth? "Conservatives" and those in positions of political power*.
*(Those in positions of political power are ALWAYS "conservatives", since they wish to "conserve" that power and keep those positions available to fill. Just as those in positions of political power are ALWAYS "progressives" since they always push their new violations on the basis of it being positive "progress". Both are evil.)
And please don't forget.
