Orwellian doublethink and controlled insanity

In order to control millions of people totalitarian governments find it necessary to somehow prod their subjects into accepting that which is not true. Intelligent people will naturally see the truth and thereby comprehend when government lies to them — and so that’s the rub — how does totalitarian government deal with intelligent people when they must be lied to? George Orwell provides the answer — intelligent people must be conditioned to reject self-evident truth — to reject the sanity of common sense — to accept the insanity of Orwellian Doublethink — to accept the lie and the truth in their minds simultaneously — “with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.”
