A is not-A

Kant started it. He said things are not when they seem to be. Hegel played along, saying "The Truth is the Whole", one must accept both A and not A to know truth, and how the view of the majority is the truth. Marx picked it up. Then after Socialism failed, Post-Modernism became necessary, and now we have neo-communists like Zizek parading it.

What they say in essence is still the same thing Kant started:
  • Things are not what they seem to be.
  • Freedom is slavery.
  • War is peace.
  • You can have your own cake, and let your neighbor eat it too.
  • A is not-A.
But if they say that out loud, no one would accept it.
