What is Newspeak? Find a short article of around 200 words and translate it into Newspeak. Post both the original and the Newspeak version.

Newspeak is the official language of Oceania, designed to make the ideological premises of Ingsoc the only expressible doctrine. Newspeak is engineered to remove even the possibility of rebellious thoughts—the words by which such thoughts might be articulated have been eliminated from the language. Newspeak contains no negative terms. For example, the only way to express the meaning of “bad” is through the word “ungood.” Something extremely bad is called “doubleplus ungood.” It’s basically a language used by politicians and government officials that is intentionally difficult to understand or it does not mean what it seems to mean and it is therefore likely to confuse or deceive people.
