Wisconsin Public School Produces Newspeak Crossword Puzzle

Freedom is Slavery, as Winston Smith would say, while on a Victory Gin break in the canteen of the Ministry of Truth:

Eighth-graders in Wisconsin’s Union Grove school district were assigned to fill out a “Liberalism vs. Conservatism” crossword puzzle, and they learned some new and very questionable “facts.”

Students learned conservatism is “the political belief of preserving traditional moral values by restricting personal freedoms … ”

Conversely, they learned liberalism is “the political belief of equality and personal freedom for everyone, often changing the current system to increase government protection of civil liberties.”
