From George Orwell's essay Politics and the English Language, written in 1946:
- Political writing is bad writing.
- Orthodoxy, of whatever color, seems to demand a lifeless, imitative style.
- Political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. Thus, political language has to consist of euphemism, question-begging, and sheer cloudy vagueness.
- The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.
