Two Minutes' Hate

The software community has a culture very similar to the Party. Orthodoxies come and go, but in the moment things have always been this way and those who claim otherwise are dangerous dissidents. The Party organizes Two Minutes' Hate, a brief period when everyone comes together to share their hatred of those who challenge the orthodoxy. You are here because you are in the Party, and you hate this.

I am the Emmanuel Goldstein of software.
