    Sapir, E. Book 1, Chapter 7 Not a word of it could ever be proved or disproved. There was one and only one way to save himself. A world of fear and treachery is torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself.

    When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the Language and Thought book memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building.

General semantics is presented as both a theoretical and a practical system whose adoption can reliably alter human behavior in the direction of greater sanity. Book 1, Chapter 8 In principle a Party member had no spare time, and was never alone except in bed.

There seems to be an infinite regress of sentences getting their meaning. His veins had swelled with the effort of the cough, and the varicose ulcer had started itching. I do not have to tell you the reason: you know it already. This points to what an accomplishment shared languages are, and I would not be surprised if was confirmed that there is a specific, dedicated biological basis for it. Book 2, Chapter 9 In Oceania at the present day, Science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist.

And it turns out that if you spin them around, put them in a cave, or try all sorts of things to discombobulate them, they can still unfailingly point in the right direction.

If you're happy inside yourself, why should you get excited about Big Brother and the Three-Year Plans and the Two Minutes Hate and all the rest of their bloody rot?

In this theory, semantics refers to the total response to events and actions, not just the words. Any symbol manipulation is in need of some way of deriving what those symbols mean. His point was that the word, as a sound, should have been no harder to learn — but because the concept was beyond the children they simply could not learn that sound.
