A thoughtcrime is an idea or belief that defies the norms of the status quo. In theory, it is your primal instinct, your creative urge unconfined by restraints from corporations, the state, media and society. Thoughtcrimes often occur after one awakens from a deep slumber with feelings of discontent in there lives. Like an explosive hand grenade, the mind and spirit are then liberated and freed from the rut of conformity.
Why be a thoughtcriminal is synonymous to asking, Why should I be a free thinking individual? True freedom lies in the mind and consciousness and cannot be censored or imprisoned. Thoughtcriminals question the status quo, reading between the lines of information that is disseminated by the mass media. They do not view the world through rose tinted lenses and refuse to let patriotism blind them of healthy criticisms. Although they are critical of the system, they optimistically seek change.
If you are a free-thinking, nonconforming individual who resists indoctrinated thought control and instead believes in self-determination and free will, then you are a thoughtcriminal.
