It is officially 1984

President Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize with a speech on the need for war. "Clear-eyed, we can understand that there will be war, and still strive for peace," he said.

I don’t think I’m the only one who still thinks this whole thing is just a tad awkward, the Nobel Peace Prize bit and all. However, after hearing that quote, all I could hear echoing in my ears is:

WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

I must start practicing my “doublethink” asap!!!!

Let me translate.

"Clear-eyed, we can understand that there will be guild drama, and still strive for progression."

Not to sound negative, but he is very right. There will always be war, because it's what we do. Empires rise and fall.

I don't like him getting the Nobel Prize, he hasn't been in office long enough to do anything worth getting one.
