Not as orwellian (and by that I mean capable of catching someone in the act) as their progenators would like, thoughtcrimes do exist today, in the form of hate crimes.

I kill you, I get 50 years in jail.

I kill you for being white, I get 80 years in jail.

This is a thoughtcrime. If I commit a crime for one reason, and get 50, and I commit a crime for another reason but get 80, this implies that I should get thirty years in jail for the thought itself. No, the liberals don't like hate. In fact they hate the idea of hate so much, they've made it a crime. Ironic, I suppose, that in doing this, they have made the villians which they wished to punish for their thoughts (and in a way rightfully so, although I believe they should only be punished for acting on those thoughts.) the stewards of thoughtpolice law. Minorities are twice as likely to be prosecuted for hate crime laws against whites as whites are to be prosecuted for hate crime laws against minorities.

Of course, I am oversimplifying.

Essentially, what Orwell foretold in his 1984 has already begun. A thought crime. We must all unite to stop hate crime laws and other thoughtcrime legislation before it is too late, and it is a thoughtcrime to suggest that a thoughtcrime should not be crime. The door has been opened. Soon the Methamphetamine Anti-Proliferation Act (Which is described by the Libertarian Party in LPPR: Illegal Speech about Drugs ) will make it illegal to communicate thoughts about Methamphetamines and other drugs, factual or otherwise, or to produce a study about such things. God help us all, it's begun.
