    When it comes to terminology,

    do we feel with our minds and think with our hreats to understand various nation building terminologies?

    Such was the case in Orwell's legend of Oceania,

    where the masses emotions were so aroused and manipulated by the oligarchy that thye could not tellthier heart from thier mind

    their reason from thier emotions

    therefore it wasno problem for the oligarchy to reverse terms

    war became peace

    love became hate and so on .


    Fanon went on at great lengths to explain that values clarification was the firt step to liberation otherwise if everyone had adifferent opinion as to the basics like

    up or down

    left or right

    day or night,

    then any mental cohesion between individuals would be almost impossible
