    They need to rename science to a word derived from a nonwhite language. Latin etymology is patriarchy and huwite soopreemacee. It also can’t be from a language that derives it word for science from the Latin root, because that’s colonialism(!), so Zulu’s isayensi is out. So from now on science will be called by the Chinese word Kēxué. Or, to give a clearer transliteration for pronunciation purposes, Kek-Sway! The Sway of Kek shall indeed grow strong. Long live Kek-Sway! Trust the Kek-Sway!

    Orwell covered this in 1984.

    Too tired to find the quote.

      Yes, esp. with “Oceania has always been at war with” (insert either) “Eurasia / Eastasia”…

      He did write it as a cautionary tale. People are using it as a handbook.
