2. The Second Gospel of Reality.

We need to fight. Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, everybody but Israel and Saudi Arabia are our enemies, and they need to be dragged kicking and screaming into Democracy for their sake. That's reality; lump it.

Pharmaceutical companies need to be able to gouge you for prices, because we got ours; fuck you. That's reality; lump it.

TPP, TISA, TTIP, and SOPA need to become the standard of communication, because corporations need extraterritoriality, and we need to know our dissenters. That's reality; lump it.

The status quo will be preserved. So sayeth the campaign donations. That's reality; lump it.

Net Neutrality standards need to be repealed, because if three companies can't control all speech on the internet the way six companies control all speech on TV, there may be dissenters we don't know about. That's reality; lump it.

Decryption needs to be an enforceable standard, never mind the fact that it compromises the security of America at large, because bawwww scurry terrorists and child molesters. After all, your phone's metadata along with every phone call and text message you've ever sent has been stored by the NSA-- why not let China have a peek too? Or Russia? Or any one of the people we've always been at war with, because as you good, establishment-fearing democrats know, Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia, like we've always been at war with Russia.

This is your reality. Nothing can be done to change it. Assimilate or die. That's reality. Lump it.
