To meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism (Ingsoc) in Oceania, the ruling Party created Newspeak,[1] a controlled language of simplified grammar and restricted vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought—personal identity, self-expression, free will—that threatens the ideology of the régime of Big Brother and the Party, who have criminalised such concepts into thoughtcrime as contradictions of Ingsoc orthodoxy.

It doesn’t matter all that much whether you have a government pension or a private 401K.
This is the kind of thing your money is sunk in.

20200605 Nederland 'zwarte piet' / ' Black Pete '
AMSTERDAM: Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his attitude towards "Black Pete", a figure from pre-Christmas
celebrations that has been criticised as a racist caricature, had undergone "great changes" in recent years.
Rutte said his view had changed since 2013, when he said: "Black Pete is just black and I can't do much about that."
Now he expects the tradition to disappear.
He was speaking on Thursday (Jun 4) in a parliamentary debate about anti-racism protests in the Netherlands held in solidarity with demonstrations in
the United States after the death in police custody of George Floyd, an unarmed black man in Minneapolis.
In the Dutch tradition, St Nicholas brings gifts to kids accompanied by numerous "Petes", clownish servants usually portrayed by white people in black face paint wearing frizzy wigs and red lipstick.
The tradition is already changing. Some celebrations feature Black Petes with dabs of paint on their cheeks, representing soot from the chimneys he is said to climb down to deliver presents.
Others include multicoloured Petes, dropping the word "black" from the name.

Nice, @joedf :thumbup:

Seems like AHK should regularly appear on such lists based on its merits, so it's probably due to a lack of publicity that it is often not mentioned. I don't know if the AutoHotkey Foundation has or ever has had plans to do some PR, but perhaps there are ways to help get AHK's name out there. I realize the foundation members are all volunteers, and there are probably not any significant funds to work with. Maybe people would contribute dollars/time to an effort to help promote it if a thread regarding a funding drive were created. I would support such an effort. Not trying to create work for anyone and I definitely don't expect anyone to do more than they are already doing to keep everything going. Just throwing the thought out there.

(as an aside, the way I was able to add @joedf as a mention from the Digi Orange theme was by manually typing the mention tags)
