Win us with honest trifles

Vote unpeace

These days we’re not allowed to call the act of dropping bombs on another country war. Then those long-winded descriptions that include words like deployment, targeted, limited and so on, they’re never going to catch on, are they? Far too unwieldy. So what we need is a new terminology, something snappy and 21st century that fits neatly into news headlines. 

Therefore, unpeace.

Orwell would be proud of us all.

Greetings Otto,
Concerning Orwellian phraseology or neologisms and your coining “unpeace.” I can’t not (sic) chime in:
From my mythical “Orwell Says Dictionary,” proudly published by Rat in a Open Sided Cage Stuck to Your Face:
Pluspeace: n The legitimate actions of Your State to achieve friendship.
Doublepluspeace The outcome of pluspeace.
