Montana House Judiciary chair Ken Peterson (R-Billings) admonishes ACLU of Montana Niki Zupanic for her disparagement of individuals after she accuses the bill sponsor of being an "excellent attorney." This is in the same world where implementing a non-discrimination ordinance is considered discrimination against Christians. "The ability to blindly believe anything, regardless of its absurdity, can have different causes: respect for authority, fear, indoctrination, even critical laziness or gullibility. Orwell's blackwhite refers only to that caused by fear, indoctrination, or repression of one's individual critical thinking ("to know black is white"), rather than caused by laziness or gullibility. A true Party member could automatically, and without thought, expunge any "incorrect" information and totally replace it with "true" information from the Party. If properly done, there is no memory or recovery of the "incorrect" information that could cause unhappiness to the Party member by committing thoughtcrime. This ability is likened to the total erasure of information only possible in electronic storage."
