'US War Theories Target Dissenters. In the Orwellian world of Official Washington, the U.S. government is now wedded to the theory of “information warfare,” meaning that Americans who challenge national security policy may be treated as “unprivileged belligerents” under the new Law of War doctrine, [a] retired JAG Major writes.'
Aristotle’s Law on Contradiction applies not only to truth claims but also to what we believe and assert. The law simply states that you cannot both think something and not think it at the same time. For example, we cannot simultaneously believe the world is flat and not flat (without some semantic trickery). It is a law broken in the Orwellian world of ‘double think’ (coined in his 1984).
