I was taken to task via email regarding my article regarding 1984 and A Brave New World. Particularly the email writer thought that I was hiding a Republican party agenda behind a popular culture article.
Well I disagree but I think you can see for yourself a wide assortment of words that reflect the newspeak I mentioned.
"Collateral damage" is when people die. Not simply from damage, but from an act of violence, or war in specific.
"Ethnic cleansing" is not a job some cleaning woman can do, it is the murder of a group of people due to their being of one ethnicity and the murderers being of another.
"Police action" is usually a war by any other name.
"Freedom Fighter" might well be called a terrorist, and vice versa depending upon the side you sit upon.
"Chemical Dependency" means you are addicted to something.
"Enhanced Interrogation" is torture, with a goal of extracting information.
"Correctional facility" is otherwise a prison or jail.
This isn't to say the words don't mean something, just that, we've created a language to avoid saying what something is, rather than, saying what is, unless it is to apply a label to someone who doesn't follow the proper protocol of acceptable culture.
