That's my favourite movie of all time. Kubrick is a genius.

The use of rhetorical language to reinforce the image of unity isn't a leftist invention, but Kate's article is pretty funny. Jon Stewart had a riot with the rhetoric in the Bush administration when they began calling the "war on terror" the "global fighting against extremism" and then back to the "war on terror" after market testing showed the former was more popular.
