Satire/Political Satire

This Orwellian gem is set in a model political bureaucracy where a harassed manager unwittingly authorizes an experiment that will introduce a new bureaucratic jargon to supplant the popular language and expedite regimentation. The fellow who engineered the scheme now bypasses his manager and becomes manager himself. The results of the new jargon are ludicrous - nobody is able to translate the new directives. The former manager fights back from his night-watchman job to regain his previous eminence - only to encounter a still newer gibberish designed to supplant the last one.
