Example text

The totalitarian countries do resemble Orwell's picture, and bear no resemblance to the self-image they wish to project. They have not been able to maintain permanent mobilization nor "to switch over to the strictly regulated operation of a mechanized undertaking," as Lenin wished in 1918. They seem to have no other choice than war. However, foreign wars now can be only limited in scope, since any general war would be suicidal, and internal war (as was seen in China under the Cultural Revolution) is likely to end in anarchy and corruption.

However, fewer people than before fully master it and many make do with rudimentary versions. Remote, uninforceable standards and untutored public eagerness make the lingua franca a plastic medium ready for the coarse distortions of, inter alia, vulgar Marxism. Mandarin yields to Newspeak. In the meantime vernacular languages hang precariously on the wayside. Often they are not taught in schools. In a police state their usage is valuable but it has to be managed wisely to avoid suspicions of conspiracy or factionalism.

With this social stratification Newspeak comes. Varieties of it can be found in African Marxist states, but present rulers did not have to start from scratch. At the disposal of revolutionary vanguards there lay the building blocks of an ill-understood official parlance. In colonial Africa historical accident and political expediency often contributed to make the alien language of the colonizer the only general language. With few exceptions modern African states were linguistic and cultural patchworks at the time of independence : by the end of the nineteenth century their bordersthe colonial borders-had been established in European capitals without regard for local conditions or for the African populations' needs and wishes.
