Rage against the machine did use them in their song "Testify" but Orwell said them first in relation to the changing scope of history and the whole "forget but don't forgive" trend. I do really appreciate someone who is impartial on these things as they tend to be able to look at them in an unclouded light. Back on thread (American conspiracy) it's hardly a conspiracy in my eyes as such after looking at the whole thing. Like I said before, the American regime doesn't actually cover itself up that much, it just leaves so much untouched that you have to plough through thousands of pieces of information to get to what they mean. The Americans never denied Iraq being involved in September 11th, but they never said they did it either (however, they did admit recently the two things were unrelated, only on a side article at the end of some document at the end of one of Mr. Bush's speeches - it seems to have yet again avoided the limelight). The US government has always sought to put it's foot well and truly in everyone elses business because it can and this is yet another example - and they always have to come out on top. This is where you see the "coincidence" of September 11th and Afghanistan and Iraq targeted by the US. You notice how quickly they were able to implement such large scale plans of invasion. Also look at the Patriotism act - there are 1000s of clauses that are changed and made different yet it was in place less than two weeks after the attacks. It has taken me around two months to read them all let alone understand them all. However, take this as you will - but after all, the one superpower can continue to go untouched as long as no other superpower arises - and they're doing their best to make it remain that way.
