Doublethink fra regeringen.

Wikipedia: "Doublethink is the act of simultaneously and fervently holding two mutually contradictory beliefs. It is an integral concept of George Orwell's dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four."

Tom Benke:
1. "En mistanke for terror er nok til, at udlændinge kan udvises uden forklaring. Og statens sikkerhed vejer tungere end den enkeltes retssikkerhed, mener retsordfører Tom Behnke."
2. "Dermed mener han dog ikke, at statens sikkerhed "står over" den enkeltes retssikkerhed."

Wikipedia fortsætter med et citat fra 1984:
"The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them . . . . To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies — all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth."
