On waking up

"For quite long periods, at any rate, people can remain undisturbed by obvious lies, either because they simply forget what is said from day to day or because they are under such a constant propaganda bombardment that they become anaesthetized to the whole business." - George Orwell, in Tribune (June 2, 1944)

Update: I assumed it goes without saying, but the quote was inspired by the corruption of the Bush administration that is finally starting to be uncovered and investigated.
